I can't help but feel that there is something much better for all of, right around the corner.
With that in mind, I would like to dedicate this song to everyone.
I will be back to blogging in full force on Monday. Until then, I hope that everyone has a wonderful New Year's.

There are also only 100 more days until Opening Day at Comerica Park for the Detroit Tigers.
These, my friends, are the things that enable me to hang on during the cold, dark days of winter in Michigan.

Patrick Stewart is, of course, best known for his work as Captain Jean-Luc Picard on television's Star Trek: The Next Generation as well as his movie roles in Dune and the X-Men movies. He was also played number roles for the stage and was a player in the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Congratulations, Sir Patrick Stewart.

There can be no denying this fact. This is especially true since I'm happily spending my Saturday evening at home, reading through the recently released analysis of the health care reform bill from the Congressional Budget Office.
In the meantime, if anyone wants to check out the numbers for themselves, you can find them here. The short version is that this bill will a) provide health care coverage to millions of uninsured Americans and b) reduce the federal deficit by $132 billion over the next 10 years.
All of the folks who previously argued that "Obamacare" would bankrupt our nation have some explaining to do, in my opinion.

I was talking about this with one of my film making friends over lunch today. It goes without saying that this is a great commercial.
The thing is, we soon found ourselves wondering: is it even possible to make a bad commercial for Victoria's Secret?
I mean that quite literally. We couldn't think of any way in which one could make a bad Victoria's Secret commercial - at least if one assumes that this commercial involves the Victoria's Secret models and features them wearing their usual outfits.
Of course, I'd like to open this up to my readers. Can anyone think of way in which someone could make a bad Victoria's Secret commercial?
Please post your thoughts in my comments section below.

|Tide - with Bacon|
Yes, ladies and gentlemen of the blogosphere, Tide laundry detergent is apparently now available with bacon. It's perfect for those occasions when you don't know whether to clean your clothes or eat them.
Kudos to the Feminist Law Professor for finding and posting this.
Thanks to everyone at Domestic Sluttery for finding this and so many other wonderful things. They are one more reason why I love the British.

Kudos, by the way, to everyone at Victoria's Secret. They posted this photo to their Facebook fan page, which is where I saw it.

I thought I was the only one that Tiger Woods had ever shown his special golf club to. However, I have learned over the past couple of weeks that I was neither his first nor his last.
You can read all of the torrid details in my soon to be released book, I Know Why They Call Him "Tiger".
I expect a movie deal to be announced soon. Perhaps that announcement will even be included in one of the three reality TV shows that I will be appearing on soon.

This new book captures Kwame M. Kilpatrick as no one ever has. In his own words, including never-before-published quotations, this former mayor of Detroit reveals himself in many ways as a liar, a Lothario and, yes, a leader.
Mr. Elrick and Mr. Schaefer will sign copies of their book at Hugh (2233 Park Ave.), which is a new men's boutique in downtown Detroit - right behind the Fox Theater. They will be there this coming Tuesday, December 15, at 9 p.m.
I met Mr. Elrick and Mr. Schaefer at the Anchor Bar (450 W. Fort) once. I was there late one night with some friends and they came in after working late at the paper. I look forward to seeing them again and, in particular, to reading this book.
I think it's always fun to count the number of parking lots in downtown Detroit. And by fun, I mean depressing.
Anyway, to see more of Detroit in Google Earth, please make sure that the 3D Buildings layer is turned on. http://sketchup.google.com/yourworldin3d

Unfortunately, when it came time for me to enlist, they discovered that I have a hearing loss in my left ear. It's a very minor hearing loss that I didn't even know I had prior to my physical. However, once it was discovered, the Air Force said "no thanks." My career plans came to an abrupt end and the rest is history.
I hadn't really thought about it much until I found this video on YouTube that shows what it's like to be an Air Force PJ.
All I can say is that the 17 year old version of me wants to watch this video over and over again.

The interesting thing is that President Obama promised to this during the campaign. He promised to do so during the Democratic primary. He repeated it during the general election.
And now he is taking heat for doing exactly what he promised to do when he was elected.
This very well be the first time that a president has drawn this much criticism from this many people for doing exactly what he promised to do if elected. This is a very strange world.

DJ Mick's web site, where he features photos from a weekly party in London. The place is filled with hundreds of young, drunk women dressed in school girl uniforms. (It's the dress code for this particular party and, in my opinion, one of the most brilliant ideas in years.)
After reflecting for a moment on the shear brilliance of the London mind, as well as contemplating precisely what it would take to launch a similar party in Detroit, I eventually reluctantly moved on to the next item in my in box.
Strangely enough, the next item in my in-box was an offer from Cheapoair.com. They sell cheap travel plans and, if you'll look to the right hand side of your computer screen, they are now an official sponsor of this blog.
Now, where did I put my passport?
Yesterday was the 2009 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. I've already blogged about how spectacular it was so there's no need for me to repeat.
And today I learned that Keira Knightley - one of the most beautiful actresses in the business - is once again single. Thank you, God. Thank you.
I can hardly await to hear what good news arrives tomorrow.
More news @ Keira Knightley single again?

I went to Del Taco for lunch today and there was an insurance agent in line in front of me. She got two sales leads from complete strangers that she met while standing in line.
Now that is some serious hustling, my friends.
It's also a reminder that, even in a terrible economy with record unemployment, it's still possible for someone to make money.

This, in my opinion, is one of those moments where Hollywood can either get things horribly, horribly wrong or wonderfully right.
I believe that the crucial reason why those low-budget films did extremely well at the box office is that they had a really good story behind them. I feel that movie audiences are, quite frankly, getting tired of lame, formula driven movies. Many movie fans can't go to the cinema as often as they would like in the current economy so when they do go, they're looking for the most out of their $8. Simply dropping one celebrity or another into a mediocre script and piecing things together with some computer generated special effects doesn't cut it anymore.
In the current economy, a good writer is especially important; perhaps now more than ever.

I don't know if there's any validity to that claim. I do, however, know that I love this commercial for the Reebok EasyTone shoes. I've watched it 11 times so far today. I'll probably watch it several more times before the day is over.
Oh, and I'm amused that I found this video on a Friday the 13th. Sometimes some very lucky things can happen on this day.

An Ohio man dressed as a Breathalyzer test for Halloween found himself blowing into one after police stopped him for allegedly driving the wrong way without headlights on a one-way street. Police say they stopped 20-year-old James P. Miller on Halloween night and found beer in his front seat and in the trunk.
Police say Miller blew 0.158 percent on a Breathalyzer test. The legal limit for driving is a blood-alcohol level of .08. Miller was cited on charges including operating a vehicle while intoxicated, underage possession of alcohol, having an open container and a fake ID as well as a one-way street violation.

However, I was floored when I found this video of Hayden Panettierre kissing Madeline Zima in a recent episode of Heroes. I actually missed it when it originally aired but found it over on Hulu.
And once I found it, I kept watching it over and over again.
Between this and her recent spread in Elle magazine, I'm officially in Hayden Panettierre Heaven. (It's a pleasant place, filled with beautiful women and nothing bad ever happens to any animal anywhere.)
With all of this, I'm just that much more disappointed that I didn't get a chance to meet her when she was in Detroit two years ago for an event at the Ronald McDonald House.

Once upon a time, I used to believe that the best thing about winter was Christmas. I'm still a fan of Christmas, but these days I'm an even bigger fan of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
It's like Christmas, with extra cleavage.
The show will return to New York for the first time in four years - Tuesday, December 1 on CBS. I can't believe that it's only 37 days away.

I've long suspected that Paris Hilton is a lot smarter than she seems in public. I don't think anyone can be that dumb and still function in modern society.
Besides, many of the things that she says and does frequently seem like they are calculated for media impact. For Paris Hilton to do such a thing - and translate that celebrity buzz into an industry with her books, music, et cetera - requires a level of cognitive function well beyond what she normally displays.
I just wish that Paris Hilton would show her more intellectual side in public.
I would love to see Paris Hilton photographed reading a book - an actual work of literature; not a sophomoric piece of fluff.
I would love to see Paris Hilton at a film festival - enjoying some of the really good, artistic films that unfortunately never go very far in the modern market.
I would love to see Paris Hilton at an opera or a play and not make a mockery of the experience.
I would love to see Paris Hilton attend an art exhibit; allow her to show that she actually gets it.
In short, I would love to see Paris Hilton demonstrate the intellect that she claims to have hidden away.
More on the "Paris Hilton is smart story" is available over Celebuzz.com, which is where I found this story in the first place. Paris Hilton Says She's Secretly Smart
Oh, and I have to extend my thanks to Glenn Francis of Pacific Pro Digital for allowing me to his photo of Paris Hilton.

Soupy Sales not only personified an era of television in Detroit, he consistently demonstrated the true power of television as a medium. His show made everyone who watched it feel not only entertained, but a part of something much larger than themselves.
His passing leaves a hole in the hearts of many Detroiters, even those who - like myself - weren't even born until long after Soupy Sales left the airwaves. His jokes were funny enough that people were still retelling them and laughing at them decades later.
Luckily, thanks to the miracle of YouTube, Soupy Sales is still available to children young and old "in Living Black and White."
Soupy Sales will be missed. If you'll excuse me, I'm off to have a slice of pie in his honor.

Of course, this changed the other day. I learned that my parents got engaged 42 years ago today.
Suddenly, Sweetest Day doesn't seem so artificial to me.
The fact that Sweetest Day started as a thinly veiled commercial undertaking is now tempered, at least in my mind, by the knowledge that there is something significant behind it - even if it's only significant to my parents and to every other couple with a Sweetest Day story behind them.
With that in mind, I'd simply like to say, "Happy Sweetest Day everyone!"

Gina Valo wrote a great blog post about dating on The Second Fiddle. She compares dating to shopping for jeans.
My advice? Treat the world as your dressing room. If something doesn't fit, be polite and put it back on the rack in one piece for someone else to find. It's okay to take something home to try it on in front of your own mirror, but try not to put anything on hold unless there's really a chance you'll come back for it. When you find something worth keeping, treat it well so it lasts forever, and always, always save your receipt.Gina Valo, The Second Fiddle, September 2009

Of course, now that Tiger Stadium is down, I'm sure George Jackson will announce his fully-funded plan to do something productive with the site; something that will contribute to the neighborhood and create jobs for Detroiters.
You know, the sort of thing that would've happened if he hadn't been allowed to block the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy from proceeding with their plan.
I'm sure he'll present it to us any day now.

All I have to say is, thank you gods of cinema. Thank you.
I adore Anne Hathaway. I loved her in The Devil Wears Prada - a role that I don't think any other actress could have pulled off better.
I also don't have nothing against Scarlett Johansson. I mean, how could anyone have anything against a beautiful woman with an extensive comic book collection?
However, I can't help but feel that Keira Knightley was simply born to play roles like this one. There is something about the way that Keira Knightley carries herself and her general presence that makes her particularly believable in a rags to riches story like My Fair Lady.
I look forward to seeing Keira Knightley on the big screen as Eliza Doolittle.
It is clear, sir, that your Detroit Lions are not up to playing in the National Football League. Rather than continuing on this 52 year long rebuilding trend, I believe it would be much more appropriate to select randomly a different high school team each week to play in their stead.
This, of course, will give high school athletes in Detroit the kind of playing experience that most teenagers in America only dream of having. It would also save you a few million in player and coaching salaries that are unwarranted anyway.
As for the kind of track records that high school athletes would earn competing against the other teams in the NFL, one only has to ask: how much worse could it possibly get?
Please, Mr. Ford. Think of the children.
Replace the Detroit Lions with some of Detroit's talented high school athletes.

The most glaring example that I came across recently was when someone referred to a certain person as "a rock star - like Example A, Example B or Example C." Of course, in this instance, each of the three examples were a musician who hadn't had a commercial or critical success in more than a decade.
Sometimes a backhanded compliment can come from what is not said rather than by what is said. For example, I read two reviews of a certain restaurant recently. Both reviews were written by the same author and neither of them included a single word to describe the what the food actually tastes like. Since restaurant reviews generally include lengthy descriptions of the food and what it tastes like, such an omission is nothing if not telling. Since the rest of these reviews gave a seemingly positive impression, the overall impact of such a review is nothing less than a backhanded compliment about the food at this establishment.
There are also instances where a backhanded compliment can come not from what is said or not said; it can come from the manner in which it is presented in relation to other things. I read, for example, an article that referred to floor-to-ceiling windows being one of the highlights of a certain venue. This was made a backhanded compliment by the fact that said remark was accompanied by photographs showing that the windows did not reach from floor to ceiling.
W.C. Fields, I do believe, would be proud to know that this art form still lives on.

Well, Leah Andreone has a new CD that is out today. It's called Avalanche and it's really cool. I'm especially fond of one of the songs on it, "Never Stop Trying".
I found the video for it on-line. According to a note on Leah Andreone's Facebook page, this was shot in one day. They did it guerrilla-style with a simple flip cam. The results, in my opinion, are very impressive.
You can find Avalanche by Leah Andreone, as well as her other works, on iTunes. I highly recommend them.

One of the unique things about creating these characters is that they almost take on a life of their own in my imagination. Sometimes they even say some of the most interesting things.
Here's an example from Act III, its an exchange between two cousins - Jacob and Mark Haut.
MARKI feel like, if someone had mentioned this to me a few years ago, my life would've been a lot simpler.
Hey, where’s Samantha?

Number 1 out of 45,782.
I'm pretty sure even Jeri Ryan herself would find that to be at least mildly cool.
As a kid growing up in the 1970s, I had one of the original G.I. Joe action figures.
In the 7th grade, I was excited to find the G.I Joe comic book series. I continued to collect them throughout high school and liked the television series a lot. (The comic books were still better, in my opinion, because their plots always seemed a bit more complex.)
G.I. Joe to the big screen, I knew that I had to go see it. This weekend, I did just that. Overall, I liked G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra a lot.
The writers made a few changes in the G.I. Joe storyline. Most of the changes, I totally understood and had no problem accepting.
For example, in the comic books, several of the original characters were described as being Vietnam veterans. That worked 27 years ago when the comic books first came out. However, it would make these characters too old to be front line troops in a contemporary story.
Also, in the comic books, the Baroness was described as an actual European baroness who got involved with radical causes while in college. Since college campuses of the late 1960s and 70s were filled with radical causes, that concept worked at that time. I'm not sure they could have made it work in a contemporary story, since it would have made her much older than any of the other characters. As a result, I was fine with changing her character.
However, the idea of making Rip Cord a soldier/ pilot instead of an airborne infantryman felt artificial to me. It was as if the writers decided that they needed someone to fly a plane at the end so they pulled the Rip Cord character out of a hat and made him a pilot.
The ironic part is that the G.I. Joe comic book series featured several pilots (Ace, Dog Fight, Lift-Ticket, Major Altitude, Payload, Skystriker, Slip Stream, Updraft, Wild Bill and Windmill). Heck, that series even included an astronaut named Countdown. It would seem to me that they could have brought any of those characters back to serve as a pilot rather than changing Rip Cord's identity.
My biggest complaint about the movie, however, had to do with the acting. When the various actors were playing off of each other - or otherwise dealing with something that was really on the set - each member of the cast did great.
However, in any of the scenes that were dominated by CGI and were obviously done in front of green screen, their performances just didn't feel as convincing. The cast said their lines and performed the action, but their emotional reactions didn't seem right for what was happening around them in this story.
The actors simply slipped out of character at those moments. More importantly, the director wasn't able to help pull them back in.
This, I'm afraid, is the downside of a movie that uses computer graphics heavily. If the actors don't understand exactly what is happening in the scene - because so much of it is happening in post-production - then they're not able to bring their characters to life as effectively.
Regardless, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was a good movie. I'm glad that I went to see it this weekend. I recommend that everyone else does, too.

John Hughes was behind some of my favorite movies from the 1980s.
It's a 24 bottle wine cabinet that is designed to look like an English telephone box. It even features a pull out drawer, storage for glasses and a back mirror.
This was posted on NerdApproved.com two years ago, but it appears that it's no longer made. I suppose I'll just have to brush up on woodworking skills - which I should do anyway since I'm the son of a carpenter - and build my own version of this.

Anyway, the folks at Graffini have these designs that are a mash up of graffiti, street signs and so on. They even have one that's based on a skull adorned ATM (see photo at left).
And they have them available in a variety of cuts - from classic one piece to Brazilian string bikini.
They look cool. There's no getting around that. There interesting and original.
However, I can't help but wonder if they aren't a bit over-powering. I mean, when I first came across some of their designs, I have to admit that I noticed the swimsuit before I noticed the woman who was wearing it.
In fact when I saw the skull adorned ATM, I almost didn't notice the woman who was wearing it at all. Somehow, I don't think that's the effect that most woman really go for.
I mean, I did notice woman eventually. The key word in that sentence, though, is eventually.
I also couldn't help wonder if that design would have the same impact if I saw it in, say, the Brazilian string cut where there's less fabric and more woman. (That design is only available in the one piece, so I can't test my theory.)
Anyway, I suppose the point of this post - to the extent that any of my blog posts ever really have a point - is that they have some really cool designs.
They also have at least one design that just makes me wonder.

Anyway, the other cool thing about that dinner party was that Detroit mayoral candidate Tom Barrow took time out of his schedule to sit down with us. There will be a lot more about that later this afternoon or tomorrow morning over on my neighborhood blog.
After that, I headed over to the Detroit Windsor International Film Festival to see Breaking Upwards, which is a film about a couple whose answer to their perceived state of codependency is to take days off from their relationship, essentially weaning themselves of each other. This is one of those movies that I walked into the theater really wanting to like.
I had heard good things about this film and thought its premise was interesting. The reality, unfortunately, is that it was a decent movie - but not a really good one.
The biggest problem, in my opinion, was with the script. Film is an inherently visual medium, but at least 80% of the story was told through dialogue as opposed to action or visual symbolism. Throughout the entire film, I couldn't help but shake the notion that we were watching the first draft of screenplay and - well - as Earnest Hemingway once opined, "The first draft of anything is shit."
I left with a desire to send the two co-writers a copy of Story by Robert McKee.
Anyway, after leaving, I headed over to the Woodbridge Pub to meet some friends; talking everything from politics to historic preservation to booze to a plan to re-open Baile Corcaigh in the not too distant future.

Please get the word out to EVERYONE you know. It would be great if this is the largest group picture in Michigan, maybe even the country! The photo will appear on Preservation Nation.
For those not familiar with the "This Place Matters" initiative, the project aims to identify historic places throughout the country that truly matter to people. In Michigan, and Detroit specifically, the MCS has been identified by many as a place that they want to see saved. More details may be found on this website: http://www.preservationnation.org/take-action/this-place-matters/
Please meet in front of Michigan Central Station on Wednesday, May 20 at 5:30 pm. The photo will be taken promptly at 5:45 pm.
Afterward everyone is welcome to participate in dining and cocktail hour at one of the many Michigan Avenue - Corktown establishments.
I encourage everyone to come out next Wednesday. In the mean time, I leave everyone with a video about why the Michigan Central Station is important.
