Lindsay Lohan returns to L.A. and filmwork

The Baltimore Sun

After spending the summer in rehab, Linday Lohan is back in Los Angeles to shoot a movie, according to People magazine's Web site.

The onetime party girl, 21, arrived over the weekend and had a low-key evening with friends Sunday, seeing the movie Elizabeth: The Golden Age and visiting a tanning salon.

Lohan was due this week on the set of Dare to Love Me, the film for which she was preparing in July when she was arrested for drunken driving.

Lohan's mother, Dina, says her daughter is eager to get back to work. "Lindsay is very happy and her life is back in control," she said, according to People.

Led Zeppelin, online

Led Zeppelin, one of the last major acts to resist digital distribution, is releasing its back catalog online.

Led Zeppelin said its songs, including "Communication Breakdown," "Whole Lotta Love" and "Stairway to Heaven," will be available from online music stores Nov. 13. The band is due to release a two-CD retrospective, Mothership, the same day.

"We are pleased that the complete Led Zeppelin catalog will now be available digitally," guitarist Jimmy Page said in a statement yesterday.

The Beatles are the highest-profile holdouts for digital distribution.

Led Zeppelin, which split up in 1980 after the death of drummer John Bonham, announced last month a Nov. 26 reunion concert in London. The lineup includes Page, singer Robert Plant and bass player John Paul Jones, along with Bonham's son Jason, on drums.

Who is that masking man?

A man hopped over a security barrier in the British Museum yesterday and tied surgical masks to the faces of two Chinese terra-cotta warriors in a protest against China's pollution problems.

Security guards stopped the man and escorted him away after alarms sounded, museum spokeswoman Hannah Boulton said. The man was not arrested, and the statues were not damaged, she said.

The exhibition includes 19 human figures selected from the more than 7,000 statues discovered in 1974 near the tomb of the ancient Chinese emperor Qin Shihuangdi.

The museum is using a novel approach in exhibiting the statues, allowing visitors to stand almost face to face with the commanding, lifesize figures of warriors, archers, horses, musicians, acrobats and a charioteer.
