Music, Movies and the Not So Mundane

Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight due to depart from LAX after refusing to put away his phone before take off. Baldwin tweeted, "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt."

An airline representative declined to comment on the incident, only offering this statement: "We're sorry but owing to privacy concerns regarding our customers, we don't comment on something that might or might not have happened."
Baldwin again tweeted, "Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950's find jobs as flight attendants."

Have a Holly Played Out Christmas

Since the Holidays have arrived, a sacred ritual is being practiced by the adolescents and young adults in the Tri-State area. The seasonal "Ugly Sweater" party is underway again this year. This unusual gathering didn't really start until the mid to late 90's but has skyrocketed in popularity among the easily amused. During the 1970s and 1980s, grandmas, aunts and mothers around the world decided to knit or sew anything related to the holidays onto a sweater. This could range anywhere from a reindeer in the forest to two cats sitting under a Christmas tree.

Music, Movies and the Not So Mundane

There is a trailer up for Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest film, The Dictator. While the director has given up on trying to fool unsuspecting people to be in his movie, he has hired A-listers Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly and Megan Fox to be in the film.

Patton Oswalt was booted from the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for texting. There is a (maybe fake) video here.

The Screen Actors Guild Award nominees have been announced, and The Help is leading with four nominations. Also of note, Hugo and Harry Potter received no recognition.

Summer Music, Weird Modes o' Transport and Severed Heads

Man, I just recently started watching Deadwood with the boyfriend. (I just IM’d him to confirm that he’s offish my boyfriend, because I’d never typed out the word before — in regards to him — and it looked funny, so I had to double check.)

Leonid Meteor Shower

According to NASA's Web site "This year's Leonid meteor shower peaks on Tuesday, Nov. 17th. If forecasters are correct, the shower should produce a mild but pretty sprinkling of meteors over North America followed by a more intense outburst over Asia. The phase of the Moon will be new, setting the stage for what could be one of the best Leonid showers in years."

Leonids, who grab their name from their location in the Leo constellation, are bits of debris from the Tempel-Tuttle comet.

And while the area around Asia might be the best place to view the shower (two of the streams will be crossing over Indonesia and China), you'll still be able to see the action in North America.

According to CNN, "The first stream will cross over Earth about 4 a.m. ET. That stream should produce about two or three dozen meteors per hour over North America."

So in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, experts recommend getting as far away from city lights as possible to view the shower. The less artificial light, the brighter the meteors will be. Also, the view is better the higher up you get. Altitude will reduce the glare of the moon.

Ohio's Stonelick Lake State Park is hosting a special viewing event with the Cincinnati Observatory Center. Get details about that even here. And read CNN's full article about the shower here.

D.I.Y. Samurai: Denim

I hate wearing pants.

For every ten pairs of pants I try on, I might look slightly normal in one. They’re usually too short and I always have a hand-full of extra fabric in the crotch region (Do pant designers assume everyone has a foopa? ). I wish a dress or skirt was appropriate for every single situation, but that’s simply not the case.Thankfully, indiDenim has heard my pant-hating cries.

My Romantic Evening at White Castle

White Castle is the oldest fast-food burger joint in the country, serving up savory, moist cardboard-like mini sandwiches for 90 years. That's right, back when people enjoyed a night of Prohibition-grade bathtub gin, they could wash it down with some sliders.

Music, Movies and the Not So Mundane

The Walmart security team (read: elderly men who think they’re still in Korea) had it pretty easy when Timothy Randall Clark decided to try and steal $500 in video game products (read: a copy of the new Call of Duty for each one of his cousins) during the “Shop With a Cop” community program. Apparently it’s incredibly difficult to steal from a Walmart when there are 50 police officers hanging out in the home and garden section. Go figure.
