Demand A Plan: Gun Violence

It’s time. Join more than 800 mayors and 750,000 grassroots supporters to demand that President Obama and Congress step forward with a plan to end gun violence.

A group of artists joined our effort to Demand A Plan and recorded a powerful, personal message.  Please take a minute to watch the video and share it with your friends and family.

Our efforts cannot bring back the 20 innocent children murdered in Newtown, CT — or the 34 people murdered with guns every day in America. But we can prevent future tragedies by passing common sense legislation that will:

  1. Require a criminal background check for every gun sold in America
  2. Ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines
  3. Make gun trafficking a federal crime, including real penalties for “straw purchasers

Chef Boutique: Sushi Making With Xcite!

A couple of friends, and myself included, attended the Xcite Sushi Making event at Chef Boutique yesterday. With a little chopping, rolling, and frying, we ended up with plates of homemade sushi! The two chefs, one from Osaka and the other from Benihana restaurants, assisted our talent-less cooking hands in creating the freshest sushi in Kuwait (yeah, right.)

Happy Birthday Xcite! Thank you for an amazing time! :)

A Must Watch: Pitch Perfect

I watched Pitch Perfect last night and it has made it to the top of my favorite 2012 movies list! Refreshing, and along the lines of Bridesmaids and The Hangover funny. Ana Kendrick surprisingly sounded really good and Rebel Wilson was off the charts hilarious! Watch it and let me know what you think! (You can stream it at Let Me Watch This if you don’t get it on DVD soon) P.S. The soundtrack is HAWT!

YouTube Preview Image

Here are two reviews resourced from Rotten Tomatoes that I genuinely agree with:

“Everything about the film feels fresh… For the target market, there are laughs galore, toe-tapping rhythms and a good up-tempo beat as Pitch Perfect hits its notes and delivers a romping fun time”

“Rebel Wilson practically rescues the film (and some of the songs) on her own with her talent, panache and self-confidence. She reminds me of irrepressible Melissa McCarthy in ‘Bridesmaids’ or Nikki Blonsky in ‘Hairspray.’”

Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

Authorities in Connecticut responded to a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Friday morning, the local NBC station reports. Police reported 27 deaths, including 20 children, six adults and the shooter, according to the Associated Press. Following hours of uncertainty during which many media outlets reported the shooter’s identity as Ryan Lanza, an official identified the suspected gunman as Adam Lanza, Ryan’s 20 year old brother, according to the Associated Press. Ryan Lanza, 24, is being questioned by police in New Jersey. Students were led single file from the schoolhouse to a nearby fire station. Parents alerted to the catastrophe by text messages and emails sent by the school district arrived hoping to find their children safe.

When we all thought kids were safe at school, this tragedy tears us apart. #PrayForNewton

Watch Obama’s statement to the shooting below. Heartbreaking is an understatement.
