The Simpsons: Fear of Flying

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 3rd 2006 9:05AM

simpsons(S06E11) This episode has a great opening scene at Moe's. The gang decides to play a few pranks on Moe, so Lenny puts a cobra in the cash register that bites Moe several times and Barney hits Moe with a flame that shoots from a flower on his lapel. Moe actually laughs these pranks off, but when Homer unscrews the lid to the sugar and it gets on the bar, Moe gets so angry he bans Homer from the bar. As a final insult, he even takes Homer's favorite record out of the jukebox ("It's Rainin' Men").

Homer tries some other bars, and finally ends up at an all-female bar that doesn't seem quite right to him. Finally, he figures it out: "This lesbian bar doesn't have a fire exit!"'

Jet Blue gets real

planeIf you haven't caught the new reality series Share the Love, it's probably because you weren't sitting on a Jet Blue flight. The new series, done in partnership with American Express, is being shown exclusively as an in-flight show on DirecTV. Contestants on the show compete in a cross country race to win free air miles. I assume they would use those air miles to fly back? Passengers can cast their votes, which simultaneously makes a contribution to the Boys and Girls Club. Finally, reality TV the way it was meant to be seen: 30,000 feet in the air with a weird kid kicking the back of your seat.

Take a vacation from Donald Trump

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 7th 2006 10:42AM
donald trump travelThe Donald's latest venture is in the travel business. He launched GoTrump.com, a website that promises low airfare and lodging rates. I checked it out and it's just a Trump-ed up version of Travelocity. Literally. It's a joint venture between Trump and Travelocity. Trump told the New York Times that his site offers special deals on his hotels and will allow normal, middle-class folks to live like the rich and famous. So far, it just looks like your run-of-the-mill travel website and Trump's hotel deals are nowhere to be found. There are also pictures of Trump planes on the site, but don't expect to ride on The Donald's airlines because that tanked in 1992.

Gee. You think we're going to see some GoTrump plugs on this season of The Apprentice? Yeah, me too.

Hotel workers not happy with Paula Abdul

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 12th 2006 1:56PM
paula abdulAmerican Idol judge (and my junior high crush) Paula Abdul is being accused by two workers at the Silverton hotel and casinoin Las Vegas of getting them fired. The story goes that Abdul called the front desk in the early morning to change her flight plans for later that morning. The two girls working the front desk began to print out flight schedules, but in the midst of it all were called again by Abdul who told them the flights were all booked. She then blamed them for causing her to miss her flight. The workers, Carol Good and Damon Rosa, were both fired. I won't pretend to know who was right or wrong in this situation, but I was impressed that Good stayed past the time her shift was supposed to end in order to help out, if only because I used to work in the hospitality industry. Typically, once my shift was over I pretty much stopped caring about the residents of the hotel. This makes me a bad person, I know. I've been trying to improve myself through meditation.
