Frankie Shaw Will Apologize For Some Things, But She's Not Sorry About SMILF

A show about single moms who are down on their luck and also horny is about as taboo as TV gets, but the Showtime series SMILF is the rare gem that manages to disrupt with unapologetic verve. Set in the Boston’s historically blue collar Southie neighborhood, the show centers on Bridgette Bird, a young, struggling mom of a toddler, who is totally lost, troubled by a traumatic past, but doing her best. In the iconic pilot episode, she’s seen at a bodega running into an old friend while buying coo...

TSA agents blasting rap music

The longest government shutdown in US history is nearing the end of its first month, and everyone is going a little crazy. Not least of whom are the TSA agents who aren’t getting paid but are still expected to show up to work. If you think going through TSA is frustrating, try being a TSA agent working in an understaffed environment, not knowing when you’ll be getting your next paycheck. Understandably, they’re doing whatever they can to forget their woes and make the workday more bearable. F...

A Delta passenger brought a gun on a flight as the government shutdown spurs TSA agents across the country to abandon work (DAL)

A Delta Air Lines passenger boarded a January 2 flight with a firearm, a Delta representative confirmed to Business Insider. The Delta representative said that once the passenger disclosed the firearm's presence, the airline contacted the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).  A TSA representative said "standard procedures were not followed" during the screening process, but said the agency was not experiencing a staffing issue due to the government shutdown on the day of the incident....

JetBlue ‘Hamilton’ sweepstakes

A tip for Brits at the US border | Letters

Fly with Aer Lingus via Dublin, recommends Roy BoffyThe answer to Emma Brockes’s problem with the notoriously hostile US immigration “service” (Journal, 7 January) is to fly with Aer Lingus via Dublin from Birmingham. Dublin airport has a US immigration desk that provides clearance and avoids the trained gorillas at JFK and other US airports. I always find the American staff at Dublin friendly and helpful and it adds little to journey times.Roy BoffySutton Coldfield, West Midlands• Join the deba...

AK Monthly Recap: December 2018

And just like that, 2018 is over. December was a nice way to end it, though. I spent most of my time in New York with a few quickie trips to Texas and Massachusetts via Connecticut, and longer time in Mass over Christmas. Each year, I try to crank out my final posts of the year early so I can relax — and I’m glad I pulled it off this year. And every year I stay off business email between Christmas Eve and New Year’s. (Though I did get one urgent press request on December 24 with a due date of D...

Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to Watch If You See ‘Escape Room’

The first escape room I did was in the office park section of Amsterdam in 2011. The building was nondescript, live escape rooms were still a novel concept, and I had visions of Taken running through my head. The paranoia was just strong enough to make me send a tweet telling people to call Interpol if I didn’t tweet again an hour later. It went fine. Those were early days where rooms were linear and filled only with numerical locks. Since then, I’ve stopped the assassination of JFK in Berlin, ...

2019 movie preview: Marvel looms large, but look who else is prepping releases

Before we get into the most obvious thing about the upcoming movies for 2019 – which is, Marvel is going to make a lot of money, again – can we first look forward to some great filmmakers who’ll be doing exactly what they want to do? Like Martin Scorsese, whose Netflix-backed “The Irishman” reunites our greatest living filmmaker with old cronies Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, and tosses Al Pacino into the bargain. It’s a mob epic that spans decades, with a lot of digital de-aging, ...

Why Are Moviemakers Obsessed With 1962?

Some see it as the year before the end of the innocence in the U.S. – the year before JFK was assassinated. For others, that “innocence” was built on an entire system that kept Black people down, that wielded sexism openly, and that was focused on the Cold War. – Los Angeles Times

Kate Hudson’s stripper pole, money-hungry Duchess Meghan, and Bruce Springsteen’s fear of fans, in this week’s dubious tabloids

Tabloid headlines are from Mars, tabloid stories are from Venus. That’s how far removed are this week’s stories and the headlines that top them. “Scott Peterson murdered 2 other women!” screams the National Enquirer cover. No he didn’t, says the story inside, despite the spread headline: “Scott Peterson a Serial Killer!” Convicted wife-killer Peterson is nothing more than a possible suspect in two cold case deaths to which he has the most tenuous of connections. “Jen Garner Recruited by Hollywoo...

Airport codes and their meanings

From your boarding pass to your luggage tags, airport codes are a small but ubiquitous part of traveling the world by air. Because we’re too busy stripping our clothes and ripping our carry-ons apart at the security check, we don’t give much thought to the meaning behind the three little letters that form airport codes. But, like the many other aspects of air travel, there’s more to them than meets the eye. Here is the meaning behind the world’s airport codes so that the next time you want to...

AK Monthly Recap: November 2018

This month was about…Kenyamerica? It’s hard to define this month as a whole — I spent the first 10 days in Kenya, enjoying the brilliant sunshine, and the final 20 days living a low-key life in the chilly, damp northeast US. That’s how much of my life has been lately. I live a normal life in New York most of the time, then I go on a trip and it’s like I’ve jumped into someone else’s life. It’s not quite as extreme as in 2012, when my broke ass spent a night in the cheapest hostel in London I co...

American Gets Competitive With Flat Beds in the Crowded Los Angeles to Boston Market

The news came as a surprise to me.  After many years of saying that it just didn’t have enough premium-configured A321T aircraft to fly beyond the traditional transcon routes of New York/JFK to both LA and San Francisco… American apparently found aircraft time.  Beginning April 2, you can expect to see flat beds up front on two of American’s six daily flights between LA and Boston.  This is all about LA, and I doubt it’s because American thinks this will work economically.  It’s just a competiti...

Maple Leafs Edge Bruins – Marner Has 3 Helpers

TORONTO — Mitch Marner had three assists and Patrick Marleau celebrated his 1,600th NHL game as the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Boston Bruins 4-2 on Monday night.
