Camels are getting too pricey for live Christmas nativity scenes in Wisconsin and are being replaced by much cheaper donkeys and sheep, suppliers say. It may cost $2,100 to rent three camels on Christmas Eve for those wanting to stage live Christmas pageant nativity scenes, and hard times are prompting people to economize with $250 for six donkeys and sheep, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Tuesday. It goes up and down with the economy, Kathy Meyer, whose family owns Jo-Don Farms in...

By CHARLOTTE CRIPPS CULTURAL LIFE Books The last book I read was 'Shock Value' by the US film-maker John Waters. It's about his movies, such as 'Hairspray', as well as his fascinating childhood and the drag star Divine, one of the regular group of actors who used to star in his movies. I don't get into the habit of reading much, though. Music I love the French alternative rock band Phoenix, particularly their first album 'United'. I downloaded all the albums and listen to them a...

By Simon Parker I HAVE just spent a surreal sixty minutes in the company of Cornish writer Carl Grose - or, to be more precise, with the product of his wonderfully inventive imagination. A veteran of countless Kneehigh Theatre productions and a founder of o-region, Carl is probably best known as a gifted and versatile actor, whose performances over the years have delighted audiences in Cornwall, London and theatres around the world.

By Simon Price CDS POP CSS Donkey SUB POP CSS, everyone's favourite Brazilian party monsters have spent the 12 months since the release of their all-killer-no-filler debut album, 'Cansei De Ser Sexy', walking it like they talk it: a living, globetrotting miniature version of the Rio carnival. Sadly, the same cannot be said of 'Donkey'. Not a comedown album as such, but the sound of a band running on very near to empty. It draws upon their hard-partying, touring lifestyle (lyrics about...

INTERVIEWS Her controversial artwork has made her a rich woman, but, at the age of 45, Tracey Emin, right, admits she's scared of never becoming a mother and of dying alone. She tells 'The Times': "A lot of men would give up everything to be in my position, to have the success that I have .... It's like a Faustian pact. They'd swap their wife, their children, everything.

By Fiona Shepherd CSS: DONKEY *** WARNERS, GBP 11.99 IT'S always nice to receive surprise guests at the pop music party. While the industry wrings its hands at its sliding fortunes, and places its bets on the most safe, conservative choices, there are still some gatecrashers squeezing in through the boundary fence.

By JAMES MOTTRAM Jaime Winstone's latest movie will upset parents everywhere, but it's reality for her generation, she tells JAMES MOTTRAM It's not hard to warm to Jaime Winstone. One minute, she's pumping my hand, calling me "babe" and greeting me in her Cockney songbird voice, the next, she's dashing out for a "moment of toilet", as she gleefully calls it. As down-to-earth as her actor- father, Ray, she's not one to put on heirs and graces. When I bump into her later in the evening at...
