DANCER ENTRY · ANOTHER "FIRST LOOK" AT HANDSOME LUKE · HALLOWEEN NIGHT AT CHATEAU MARMONT WITH RYAN GOSLING
Last October 26th, when we updated Ballet entry with some curious info about Gosling and his passion for classic ballet, we were not aware of the fact that it was like opening The Pandora Box. The very next day we received several petitions showing some of our reader's hunger for Gosling Dance ... Your wishes are our commands, dear visitors.
We have compiled the very best moments of Mr Gosling developing his dancing skills along the years. Please go and check Dancer Entry and don't forget to click on the eye to enjoy a Distressed Movie!
Sierra Affinity just released this "first look" at Ryan Gosling as professional motorcycle rider turned bank robber in The Place Beyond the Pines. Gosling fans we can't pretend we haven't enjoyed the charms of Handsome Luke from the very first stages of the filming back in July 2011, but an official picture -so beautifully taken- is always a good way to brighter any fan's day, isn't it??? We admit our hearts skipped a beat as if we hadn't ever seen a sexier impersonation of Billy Idol before. But that's part of our undonditional love, isnt it? ...

According to ContactMusic, Ryan Gosling has rented a bungalow at the exclusive Chateau Marmont so he can throw a huge Halloween party on Monday (31.10.11). The publication says that he doesn't want to attend a glitzy Hollywood shindig on October 31st so he has been busy preparing for his own bash by turning the room into a haunted mansion for him and his friends.
A source said: "Ryan's already caught up in the ghoulish Halloween spirit and comes back from shopping every day carrying bags and bags of scary stuff like hanging glow-in-the-dark skeletons, monster faces, daggers, witch brooms and a slew of other Halloween items."
Ryan is reportedly hugely excited about his spooky party with one insider saying the bungalow looks like the set of a horror movie. The source added to the National Enquirer magazine: "His room looks like something out of a horror movie, but he's loving every moment of it, and told the staff that it's really going to be freaky cool when the moon rises." Thanks Elle Driver for sending us this note!

DONNA LEE GOSLING UPDATED ENTRY
There was a time, long before Dead Man's Bones and prior to the day Mr Gosling decided to liberate the crooner inside him, when he performed his songs without his partner in crime -Mr Shields- in small L.A clubs like "The Cat Club" in West Hollywood. Those are the times Donna Gosling exchanged some mails with Valerie in her Ohh Ryan Gosling site talking about Ryan's music, revealing a side that not everybody knows about her son: an old soul with a wonderful heart and feet squarely on the ground. But a mother couldn't leave unnoticed his baby blues, the blond hair and the charming smile, could she? Find it out in Donna Gosling.
To get this info, we contacted Kamin; she contacted BlondieBlue227 who kindly posted a message in The United States of Gosling forum, where Garr shared the first clues about the letters before Lorelai posted the info in the forum, giving credits to Valerie, who kindly gave us permission to use the letters she exchanged with Donna ... Phew! Isn't it such an amazing thing, the internet??? Thanks guys for your help!

Wrong marketed and negatively tagged by some critics as an attempt to look "artsy", Stay is one of those movies you will love to the core if if you understand what you see.
As director Marc Forster pointed out, it was made to be watched multiple times to try to decipher the clues in every scene, so we invite you to check out the very first stages of our humble tribute to what could be considered the most underrated movie starred by Mr Ryan Gosling.
A movie that is not only worth seeing for its amazing performances, stunning visuals and excellent direction but also -in a lighter note- for the tragic beauty of Ryan's Henry Lentham, that can't definitely be overlooked: Stay Entry.

But sure we want to hear about his scatological poop and pee stories. Now it's your chance to get all the details visiting the most obscure entry in the Compendium: Let's Poop and Pee.
