hat a week! Was it the best week ever? No! But that doesnt mean there werent some wins and losses! Some Dubs and Ls! Lets all take a look at This Weeks Highs and Lows! Weeks like this make the world go round!
High: Timeless Entertainment!
A League of Their Own turned 25 years old! I should know, I saw it in the theater when I was, uhh, -3 (if any casting agents are reading this).
Also, July 6 was the 70th anniversary of the first time John Lennon met Paul McCartney at a backyard concert! What a chance encounter!
Furthermore, it is alsothe 20th anniversary of the release of freakin Men In Black!! Thatmovie is dope. Aliens, Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, a talking pug Its a total classic.
So anyway, this was a pretty good week to create something if you want it to be remembered always.
A female reporter was asked to leave Speaker of the House Paul Ryans office because she was wearing a sleeveless dress. THE HORROR! How will Speaker Ryan ever recover? Whats next? Exposed kneecaps? Joining the 21st century and realizing womens bodies arent on display for your benefit? Frankly, Im a fan of the long white gloves look, but unless your daily routine is cosplaying Breakfast at Tiffanys, enjoy the summer and go bare up there.
High: Prison Talent Shows!
This week, beloved actor James Cromwell was sentenced to 7 days in jail for refusing to pay a fine for protesting.
What is the acting worlds (temporary) loss is surely the prison yard theatrical departments gain! Lets hope they bring back Othello before he gets out! Hey! I think I have a new reality pitch Stars Behind Bars! Nobody steal that!
Low: High School Civics Classes
On July 4, National Public Radio tweeted out the Declaration of Independence, but since Twitter only allows people to write messages 140 characters at a time, they had to break it up into many, many tweets. This caused massconfusion from people thinking the DOIs call for freedom from a tyrannical king was a shot at the current President of the United States. What would ever give them THAT idea?!?
Most people finally caught on and we all had a nice laugh at the misunderstanding, but goodness gracious, people pick up a book once in awhile.
High: Kato Kaelin!
Americas Favorite Houseguest (do we really still call him that?) won over $12,000 at a Milwaukee Brewers baseball game on Monday simply by entering the stadiums 50/50 charity raffle.
He has seemingly struggled at every other venture he has attempted to dive into (acting, radio hosting, stand up comedy, game show contestant, defending his buddy in court, you know, the normal path through life) so maybe after all of these years he has finally found his true calling: gambling! Hey, it cant hurt?
