TIME TO GET TOWNED!
Before we get into the A & E in the ILLI and MO, I ran into a funny and hilarious clip from the classic 1980s sitcoms "Gimme a Break" starring the late actress Nell carter entitled PORKOS’s (and you can just imagine what the episode is about). This has to be one of the funniest moments on TV. Peep it out and let me know what you think.

OK NOW TO The A &E.
The big newz thing this week and part of last week was the 80th Annual Major league baseball League All Star Game that was here in St. Louis (a first since 1966) and televised nationally. The game and the events that lead to the game made headlines .
The American League won over the National League through the final seven innings secure a 4-3 victory in last Tuesdays game, but the highlights were the events leading up to the game such as
The President of the United States Barack Obama threw the ceremonial pitch to Cards First Baseman Albert Pujols (PICTURE COURESY OF MLB.COM) who had a special glove Obama 44 to catch it (we hear Obama warmed up in the war up area of Busch Stadium before he got the ball from Cards legend Stan Musial—who was honored as well). The gab was mainly on how he threw it and what he had on (A White Sox jersey). On the jacket during an in-game booth interview, Obama reportedly said “Everybody knows I’m a White Sox fan, and my wife thinks I look cute in this jacket, so between those two things why not?”
How cool is that?
Missouri native Sheryl Crow sang the National Anthem (she also performed the Charity Concert along with Elvis Costello under the Archgrounds Saturday night)
All the MLB players and invited legendary b-ballers took part in the red carpet event where a long red carpet draped Market Street from 4th to 8th streets as thousands caught a glimpse of their favorite all-star including Albert Pujols (PICTURE BY CARLSTON EDWARDS)
On Monday, folk checked out the HOME DERBY wherr Prince Fielder won the State Farm Home Run Derby with crowd fave Albert Pujols and STL native Ryan Howard were eliminated in the second round. Fielder won with a display that included a homerun at 503 feet..
On Sunday, there was a celebrity softball game that took place at Busch stadium. Celebs included Nelly (PHOTO BY MTV.COM) Chingy, Andy Richter, Ashanti, Billy Bob Thornton , Ginuwine, James Denton, and Jon Hamm to name a few. The baseball legends who played were Ozzie Smith, and Dave Winfield.
Then their werr a slew of afterparties for the public as well as private. Some of the private affairs included Mike Shannon’s 70th b-day party at Cielo’s in Lumere Place which had attendees such as Bob Costas, Sen. Claire McCaskill, actors Jon Hamm, Billy Bob Thornton and James Denton and Hip hop acts Nelly and Ginuwine.
Nelly was also spotted at an after party that also saw rock legend Chuck Berry.
OUTTOWN managed to go to the red carpet portion of Ryan Howard’s bash Monday at Lumen (SEE OUT 647 for PICS) where several MLB players including Barry Larkin and Derek Jeter and rap legend/entertainer DMC attended.
Also on Monday, At Lure Nightclub, was the Playboy Party were sportscaster and HBO personality Joe Buck, Nelly and . Cedric the Entertainer were seen (WE ALSO GOT SCOOP ON THIS PARTY AT OUT 647 ).
On Tuesday, OUTTOWN peeped out gentleman jack’s After party at Exo where several MLB players attended and rap legend DMC came and performed (SEE OUT 648 )
We also heard that Michael Jordan, Ll Cool J, Jay Z, Beyonce and Halle berry were spotted in the ST. Louis area but no reports on whether they attended any afterparties.
In other A &E newz:
The 2009 St. Louis American Idol winner was Noll Billings, 26 from Kennett, Missouri. He moved on to Denver to the tryouts this week. No info on how well we did in those auditions.

Veteran rapper Too Short performed last Friday at the Spot in Baden.

If you are wondering why are there many cars rolling through Arby’s these days ,w ell, its because , following suit to Oprah’s Kentucky Grilled Chicken coupon giveaway, Arby’;s is giving away free Bacon Cheddar Burgers, with an online printed coupon, but for this giveaway you have to purchase a drink.
Three STL journalists are back as of late (and we do mean late). First up we just found out this week that former STL Mayor Freeman Bosley Junior (UPPER LEFT) is back on the radio waves with the Freeman Bosley Junior Show (along with co-host Pat Washington) . A few months back, the show was pulled from 100.3 The Beat on Sunday Monings. Well, it’s been back on air for about a month and it is now heard on Saturdays at 10 am on KATZ 1600. Third is former St. Louis American City Editor and current fill-in Donnybrook personality Alvin Reid (LOWER LEFT ) . E also found out this week that Reid is currently a reporter for the St. Louis Argus. He’s been there since May. After his firing earlier this year, he did part work on 101 ESPN FM Radio.
The St. Louis Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society will establish its performance venue inside the current space of Reggie’s Backstage at 522 North Grand Boulevard in Grand Center. The finished product will be a space that operates both as a performance venue for the St. Louis Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society as well as a fully functional restaurant. The Society, as a non-profit organization with its own board of directors, will operate independent of Reggie’s Backstage. During the two-month renovation, Reggie’s Backstage will not only revamp its interior by incorporating sharp R&B style into the décor, but executive chef Peter Barken will also tweak its menu of contemporary American cuisine with new dishes and entrees that have a nice southern flair. The grand opening of the St. Louis Rhythm & Blues Preservation Society is slated for Fall 2009. The re-opening of Reggie’s Backstage is set for the same time.
Former St. Louisan Mike Larnell emailed OUTTOWN to let us know about a trailer of his upcoming movie that we wanted yawl to see.
He writes: I am just hitting you up and letting you know I have checked out your blog on several occasions and I enjoy the read. I noticed you started doing blogs on entertainment coming out of STL. I am a filmmaker from STL. I moved to Chicago from there about 2 years ago to pursue this filmmaking. Please check out a short film I did last year IT SOOTHES MY SOUL. I am going to be filming the indie feature for IT SOOTHES MY SOUL. Due out in Spring 2010. So please check out the video and my website. Thanks

BLIND BITZ EXCLUSIVE. Which baseball player who played and attended after party events during the MLB All star Game went to a popular nightspot over the weekend, spent 12 grand there and tipped a female server 10grand as an incentive for a date and was turned down? (Hint. The baseball player is known by non-baseball fans as one who was romantically linked to a 90’s pop female diva and the spot is located on Lindell)

Why weren’t the media given access to the Ryan Howard Party at Lumen? Why didn’t Barry Larkin address the media at the party at Lumen? Why were tickets priced at $150 and up for Lure’s All Star Game after party Monday ?Why did someone cut a piece of the red carpet laid out on Market Street during the Red carpet ceremony? Why did Obama wear a White Sox jersey instead of a Cards jersey when he threw out the ceremonial pitch? And why didn’t LL Cool J attend Exo’s after party Tuesday? Why did a brotha groupie in one of the MLB clicks at Exo’s after party Tuesday tried to pull a fast one saying to all the bouncers that he paid a bouncer 100 dollas to get in and was still outside of the club begging to get in? ( He was eventually given access )? Why did DMC leave the Exo party in a regular taxicab and not a limo?
WHYZ extra–Why did YOURS TRULY think The City was much bigger? And Why did the St. Louis Post Columnist Deb Peterson call Ginuwine a rapper in a recent column ?

SPOKEN WORD ARTIST SPOTLIGHT
Streetballers is an award winning film from a filmmaker groomed by Sundance, and represented by top Hollywood representation. And yes.... Living in Saint Louis. It is a truly independent project with years of hard work, thoughtfulness, and skill behind its execution and style. The extremely diverse and talented team behind Streetballers is and will be the key to all future success. We are young artist driven by love, loyalty and friendship. Our goal is to inspire as individuals and our film is a tool to inspire the masses. We’re planning on opening the film in Saint Louis, MO on August 21st then expanding to various cities with a large urban/sports/college market (Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Atlanta, Denver, Detroit). We have toured the U.S. and won numerous awards through festivals. We have turned down traditional distribution outlets and decided to self-distribute the film utilizing DCI compliant technology (Digital Projection).
Just over a month ago, Streetballers writer/director/producer/co-star Matthew Krentz signed with APA and Leverage Management. A portion of the proceeds from the soundtrack will be donated to several different charities. As we mentioned above the team is comprised of loyal,hardworking and loving artists who are dedicated to reaching up, reaching out and giving back to the St.Louis community. We realize and embrace our roles as mentors.We except that esponsibility, while challenging ourselves to be the best rolemodels we can be,we stress education;because without education would not be where we are today. The Streetballers team has an extremely popular film, with a ton of street credit, and has developed a tremendous theatrical strategy of releasing the film in theatres across the U.S. with the Streetballers producer/actors and director touring with the film.
