"I always knew I had a different type of body," says Coco. "I was always stockier than the average girl." Her famous hip-hop husband, Ice-T, approves. "She's got a big booty, and I think it's beautiful," he says. Mr. and Mrs. T have been together for nearly eight years, and though they aren't exactly Ozzie and Harriet, they are a little Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. "I'm his assistant." Coco says. "I get up with him in the morn­ing and go to the set of Law & Order: SVU." When Coco steps in front of the camera Ice-T becomes her assistant. He even pitched this spread to us and helped out during the shoot for Ice-T's Hot Coco: He oiled her body. How many more nude shoots will he follow his wife to? This may be the last time we see so much of her. As Ice-T explains, "When you do playboy, that's it^you've hit the top of the game."

I enjoyed |im Harrison's account of his infatuation with Lauren Hutton in December's Trulx, Madly, Deeply (Mostly Madl\). There is a longer story, but as a young man traveling in Mexico in the mid-1970s, I found myself taken under Hulton's wing ihrough succes­sive winters in Zihuatanejo and various visits to New York. She is an American original—genuine, sincere and still over-the-top hot. Infatuation lades, but fondness remains.

After reading your interview with Governor Richardson I will give him my vote for president. He is the only Democratic candidate who has actually done anything. Having said that, I take issue with his plan for universal health care. The government should take care of the poor and people suffering from significant diseases such as cancer, but the illnesses we inflict on ourselves through poor diet and inactivity are our responsibility. When consumer demand forces fast-food restaurants to make way for gyms, then we can dis­cuss universal health care.

It seems as though it will be forever before we'll go home (I've been here 15 months now), but pi.wboy still gives us hope, even though the magazine is ofiicially banned. I'm not writing to ask for anything, just to thank you for your efforts and let you know they are appreciated an ocean away and under the worst circumstances.

Refined English beauty Kristin Scott Thomas is one of the most versatile ac­tresses of any era. The creamy-skinned Oscar nominee gravitates toward choice roles with legendary directors, such as her tragic turn in Anthony Minghella's The English Patient (pictured), in which she has an affair with Ralph Fiennes. Look for her next in the historical drama The Other Boleyn Girl, playing Lady Elizabeth, the disapproving mother of sisters Anne and Mary, who compete for the affections of Henry VIII.

AS ANY GEARHEAD will tell you, the four-valve cylinder-head configu­ration was a leap forward in car engines, allowing for better aspiration and thus more horse­power. The Quattro Valvole watch ($5,500, magsusa.net) is an ode to this stage in auto­motive evolution. Encased in lathed aluminum and sport­ing four independent dials, it's perfect for motoring through multiple time zones in and with something fast and Italian.

EVERYONE MAY BE Irish on St. Patrick's Day, but only a few whiskeys similarly qualify. As Celtic booze goes, Jameson and Bushmills still rule these shores, but Powers ($18) has long been one of the best-selling Irish whiskeys in Ireland. Don't let the price fool you: This deliciously spicy spirit delivers authenticity, taste and value. Those ready to open their wallets wider will revel in Jameson's Rarest Vintage Reserve ($250). The blend, which has smoky hints of wood and dark chocolate, hits America this month. Finally, in honor of the 400th anniversary of its license to distill, Bushmills is releasing its 1608 bottling ($100). Made with "crystal malt" and displaying vanilla and toffee overtones, it's the smoothest of the bunch-perfect neat or with a splash of water.

HOW DO YOU know you're a vintage-scooter fetishist? Maybe you keep a small fleet in your bedroom so you can gaze on them as Christmas-fresh toys, or perhaps just this past Saturday night you completed your 342nd viewing of Quadrophe-nia. We ask, Why stop there? Italian designer Maurizio Lamponi Leopardi creates lamps, like the one seen here, out of a variety of in­dustrial detritus, includ­ing original Lambretta and Vespa scooters. Recycled and retro fla­vored, this one is cob- bled from a Vespa Gialla ($1,500, lamponislamps .com) and would make an illuminat- ing addition to the living room of any aspiring Ace Face.

Last week I had an argument with my girlfriend. Yesterday a mutual friend told me she had called him after the fight for advice and asked him out for a drink; today the story I got from my girlfriend is that our friend had called her and asked her out for a drink. I don't want to press the issue because frankly I'm glad she talked to a friend rather than a guy I don't know. But 1 feel if she can't be straight with me about such a simple mat­ter, how can I trust anything coming out of her mouth?—E.M., Miami, Florida

Do Americans still have the right to pri­vacy? Some people don't think so. "In our in­terconnected and wireless world," says Donald Kerr, director of the National Reconnaissance Office, "anonymity is quickly be­coming a thing ol the past." Kerr, one of the nation's highest-ranking security officials, made this com­ment in a speech at an in­telligence conference in San Antonio this past Octo­ber. "Protecting anonymity isn't a fight that can be won," he said. "Anyone who's typed in their name on Google understands that. Younger generations have a very different idea of what is essential privacy, what they would wish to protect about their lives and affairs."

The author of December's "Bombers Away" must be the same person who assisted the French in constructing the Maginot Line. Don't get me wrong: Bombers are a requirement in today's military. They are not, however, the first choice when it comes to close air sup­port. True, they can carry many more 2.000-pound JDAMs than an F/A-18 or F-16 can. But a variety of weapons is required in combat. Among the most utilized today are strafing (yes, strafing) weapons and smaller munitions such as laser-guided Mavericks. Interestingly, the author argues we buy fighter planes because they're cool. Tools are bought for their ability to meet the requirements. For a fighter pilot, nothing is cool about

TEHRAN-The Iranian Ministry for Cul­ture and Islamic Guidance announced it would crack down on increasingly popular Farsi hip-hop. The ministry will close underground studios and "confront" rappers. Inspired by the American Farsi hip-hop scene, based in Los Angeles, local producers and MCs in Iran have started to create their own music, mimicking the ac­cent of American Farsi speakers and dealing with social, sexual and politi­cal topics. To perform openly or sell albums in legitimate music shops, Iranian musicians need a government license. But bootlegged CDs and Internet distribution of songs have allowed a hip-hop scene to flourish beyond the reach of officialdom. Now the government wishes to "find a so­lution" to Internet distribution.

Washington. D.c - a Dill approved by trie House Education and Labor Committee—H.R. 4137, the College Opportunity and Afford-ability Act—contains a disturbing clause that would give entertainment corporations police powers on American college campuses. That clause, section 494: Campus-Based Digital Theft Prevention, would force universities to offer alternatives to illegal downloading (that is, to pay for students to use services such as Rhapsody or eMusic) and mandate filters on university computer systems to seek out such activity. Failure to comply would cost a school all its federal funding. A letter criticiz­ing the bill, signed by officials from Yale, Penn State and the University of Maryland system, points out another egregious element of this legislation: Compliance would be monitored by the entertainment industry, which would submit lists of schools in violation of the law to the secretary of education, who would in effect become an enforcer under the com­mand of the media corporations.

JAZZ ARTIST OF THE YEAR

[no value]
Although this past year was notable for a series of extraordinary jazz reissues, the best jazz embraces the future. That's what saxophonist Chris Potter does: Even while he quotes the past, 2008's Playboy Jazz Artist of the Year keeps his eye on the road ahead. "When I was starting out in jazz," Potter says, "I was attracted to the necessity of understanding the rules of the music, combined with the equal necessity of transcending those rules." As demon­strated on two great CDs released in 2007 (Chris Potter Underground's Follow the Red Line, Live at the Village Vanguard and Chris Potter 10's Song for Anyone, both on Sunnyside), Potter can do just about any­thing he wants with his horn. But lately he has moved beyond mere virtuosity. After years of session work and side gigs-most memorably with Steely Dan and Dave Hol-land-the 37-year-old tenor and soprano player has come into his own both as an eloquent frontman and as a composer. "I'm sure the feeling of the blues is as old as the human race," Potter says. "But we each experience it as something new. Each of us has to reinvent that wheel in our own way." From the lushly orchestrated third-stream 10-piece of Song to the incendiary quartet at the Vanguard, Potter is always adventurous, dextrous and probing.

Kicking things off with string of homegrown hits in Australia the boys moved to England in 1967 am penned (highly underrated) Beatles: like hits such as "Massachusetts" am "Words," songs that still inspire jangle pop devotees who would never listen t< disco. The Cibbs are best rememberei for the second part of their career, how ever, and the 30th-anniversary edition o Saturday Night Fever, released this pas year, leaves no doubt about the soune of that phase: white-suit-wearing, high heel-strutting, mirror-ball-spinning disco the music that introduced club life ai we know it.

"My nose is too big for my face," he says, taking inventory. "My hair is thinning, which is why I shaved my head. My eyes are beady. I have indentations on either side of my forehead. I'm short, skinny and pale, and I slouch." Strauss does have one thing going for him: a great personality. Really. We're not just saying that. Five years ago the writer met a magician named Mystery, who taught him how to assert himself in the presence of a beautiful woman.

s we all learned from Saturday-morning cartoons, three is a magic number. When it comes to women, three beats two and triples one. More is not less; more is merrier. The Greeks told of three Graces— Aglaia (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth) and Thalia (Good Cheer)—who threw all the best parties and ran the odd saucy errand for Aphrodite and Eros. In Wagner's opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen, the three Rheinmaidens—Wellgunde, Woglinde and Flosshilde—are sexy mermaids who nakedly (but rather poorly) guard the Rheingold, the wonder stuff on which the plot hinges. And once upon a time there were three little girls—Kelly Garrett, Sabrina Duncan and Jill Munroe—who went to the police academy and were assigned hazardous duties, only to be taken away from all that by a man. His name was Charlie. Yet all mythic temptress trios seem mere preludes to the Girls Next Door—Holly, Bridget and Kendra—apples of Hef's eye and a sign that the terrorists aren't winning diddly. This is their third Sexiest Celebrities appearance and third playboy cover. Studies show our Rabbit is one of the world's most recognized logos, yet in just three years these ladies have put their stamp on our half-century heritage. Say you're a playboy editor and men always ask whether you've been to the Mansion (we have, and it was spectacular). Women's reactions were less reliable—until now. "You work for playboy? I love The Girls Next Door1." they tell us. Three cheers for the blonde, blonde and blonde.

The Canadian edition of Enter­tainment Tonight caught up with our north-of-the-border beauty Jayde Nicole (pictured, middle) in Toronto. Miss Janu­ary 2007 stars on a reality show that coaches awkward guys in how to land beautiful girls. The bookend blondes are Jayde's models-employees-colleagues-friends Cassandra Paige (left) and Charlee Beer (right). During her appear­ance on El Canada, Jayde also made a case for choosing her as Playmate of the Year: 'There hasn't been a Canadian PMOY *~ in 26 years!" she exclaimed. Sounds like a cause.

\nSexin Cinema (December) we ran photos of this Irish lass about to be roy­ally screwed by Jonathan Rhys Meyers's Henry VIII. She wrote us a very sweet note to say that being in playboy is "the real­ization of a child­hood dream"— and that we got her name wrong. D'oh! It's RACHEL MON­TAGUE, damn it.

We thought Ultimate Ears' UE 10 Pro head­phones were the height of personal audio reproduction. Silly us. They've topped them­selves with the custom-fit UK 11 Pro ($1,150, ultimateears.com). Featuring four separate drivers in each earpiece, they can be customized with any design for an extra $100. Since they block out all but the most extreme noise, you'll hear all your music's subtleties, even at low-volumes. We've been floored by the quality of sound and sense of space these produce.

There was a time when people thought space travel was impossible, suicidal or both. Some extremely bold men proved the doubters wrong, and they did it wearing flimsy silver jumpsuits and ersatz motorcycle helmets. On the occasion of its 50th birthday, NASA helped produce America in Space ($50, hnabooks.com), a lavish oversize tome brimming with incredible photos of the U.S.'s adventures beyond Earth. The shots from the Mercury and Apollo eras are especially inspiring documents of raw courage.

Any old car has horsepower, but only a privileged few have cow power. A new motor oil called G-Oil (from SO, getg.com), from Green Earth Technologies, is made of beef tallow and comes in a variety of viscosities and performance levels for turbocharged, supercharged and hybrid engines. Yes, that's right—you can now use a by-product of the meatpacking industry to lubricate your engine. In addition to its green origins, G-Oil also helps the environment on the other end. Once it has fulfilled its lubricating mission, stir in G-Disposoil (from S6) and the biodegradable mix can be poured directly into your backyard. No bull.

Cooking a gourmet meal is like driving in a Formula One race: You need to move fast and have a good pit crew. For those of us without sous chefs, the Peugeot F.lis F.lectric Salt and Pepper Mills (SI00 each, surlatable .com) grind at the touch of a button, leaving one of your hands free to stir, rub, spank or slap (hey, cooking's a dirty busi­ness). They also shine light wherever you aim them so you can see what you're sea­soning, even in candle­light. Add their sleek brushed-steel finish and you're ready for some high-octane (bowing.

We're fans of the new breed of aftermarket GPS systems, with their instant setup and nifty features, but controlling them is still an issue. Touchscreens help, but we prefer Harman/Kai don's Guide + Play GPS 810 ($600, guideandplay.com), which has a wireless control knob you stick within reach of the driver. It offers the feel of a factory-inslalled GPS, but you can connect it yourself in less than five minutes.

Ah, the Great Depression, when men were men and getting a facial meant taking a jab from Jim "Cinderella Man" Braddock. Lucky Tiger, a brand of shaving and grooming products that dates from 1935, was recently revamped for our age of sea­weed body wraps. The Kssential Grooming Kit's vintage metal tin (S72, nordstrom .com) houses face wash, moisturizer, shaving cream and aftershave, which will satisfy dandies and palookas alike.

Back in the 1980s Tamiya relentlessly tempted motor-obsessed boys with its line of build-your-own high-performance remote-control cars and buggies. Recently the company began reissuing some of its greatest hits, like the Hornet pictured here (SI 60, tamiya .com). Better yet, you can now order the vehicles preassembled, if you choose—because these days you have, like, a job and stuff.

Tokyo may be half a world away from our editorial offices, but Tokyoflash's watches look as though they originated in a distant galaxy. The Shinshoku ($135, tokyonash.com), for example, would fit right in on the wrist of a Mos Eisley cantina patron. So how does it work? Colored LEDs in the stainless-steel bracelet represent hours (red), 15-minute chunks (green) and single minutes (yellow). This one reads 12:54. It may take a moment to get used to, but you'll never be late for another warp jump again.
