UKRAINE NOT WEAK ... Ukraine sue -- at least that's what one hot Ukrainian singer is doing, claiming Carly Rae Jepsen shamelessly stole her slutty Christmas song ... and turned it into "Call Me Maybe." The singer -- who goes by Aza -- is filing the lawsut in L.A., claiming "Call Me Maybe" is a carbon copy of her song "Hunky Santa" ... which producers simply tweaked before adding Carly Rae Jepsen's voice. According to the lawsuit -- to be filed today by Aza's lawyer Barry Rothman -- she's suing for unspecified damages ... but based on how insanely popular "Call Me Maybe" is, a ton of money's on the line. Aza tells us, "I'm shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn't ask me for permission, they just took it. That's why I filed this lawsuit. When I first heard it on the radio, I was driving and almost got into an accident. I couldn't believe what I was hearing." As for how similar the songs REALLY are -- you be the judge.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) – Austin Kendall threw three touchdown passes to lead West Virginia to a 44-27 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday. Kennedy McKoy helped West Virginia’s run game break out of a slump with a pair of scores, and the Mountaineers (2-1) had by far their highest offensive production of the season one week after looking lethargic in a 38-7 loss at Missouri. Kendall had first-half TD tosses of 20 and 13 yards. His 25-yard run early in the fourth quarter set up his 9-yard scoring toss to freshman Ali Jennings for a 38-27 lead. Kendall went 27 of 40 for 272 yards with an interception. West Virginia broke a 21-21 halftime tie with the help of its defense, which had been criticized by the coaching staff for 22 missed tackles a week ago. North Carolina State (2-1) managed just 97 yards of offense in the second half. Sophomore Matthew McKay threw a first-quarter touchdown pass but was harassed all game in his first road start. McKay finished 23 of 48 for … [Read more...] about Kendall Tosses 2 TDs, West Virginia Beats NC State 44-27

There is a memorable scene in the movie Magnolia, when Julianne Moore's enraged character confronts an indiscreet pharmacy clerk: “Where’s your f……. decency?” This is exactly how I felt after watching that United Airlines video. Fights over armrest territory, special devices to block the person in front of you from reclining, and in-flight freak-outs have become all-too-common phenomena—we have come to view air travel as the place where decency ends. And then it actually ended. With a scream! I have watched the clip again and again, in utter disbelief at the surreal scene: a United Airlines passenger dragged from his seat and pulled off an overbooked plane by Chicago police officers using brute force to make space for four United staff (!) members. Some people in nearby seats documented the event with their phones, and the videos went viral to immediate outcry. When nothing is sacred anymore, everything is fair game The reason we are so … [Read more...] about The United Debacle, or, It Doesn’t Take Much to Be Loved
