My Tale of Two Cities and Sunday Links

As a reminder for folks living in the DC area, there is a special screening of My Tale of Two Cities, "a funny and heartfelt "comeback" story about coming home and the city of Pittsburgh, the real-life "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" tomorrow (Monday, March 16) at the AFI Silver Theater in Silver Spring at 7:00pm. That is one long sentence! Franco Harris, Mr. McFeely, Franco "Dok" Harris, who has declared to run for the Mayor of Pittsburgh, and Sean of Sean's Ramblings, who has declared not to run for the Mayor of Pittsburgh or any other city (yet?) will all be in attendance.

Here is the movie trailer:

Tickets are only $10, but are first come, first serve and may sell out. To reserve your seats, please email Natalie at and specify the DC screening. More information about the film is available on the My Tale of Two Cities website.

Here are some other links and videos for your Sunday while you wait until the brackets are announced:

- Steve Is Alive asks the Top Eight Mysteries of Pittsburgh. My favorite: "Who thought Franco Harris and George Washington were on the same level to share side by side statues of each other at Pittsburgh International Airport?"

- LiLu shares the places you must go to when you move to Washington. Sadly, since I live in the suburbs and don't get out much, I have been to less than half of these places.

- PSAMP found an online stock comic strip generator.

- Gilahi found a bare naked pole dancer. Actually, it's a bear naked pole dancer. This is completely safe for work or home.

- Congratulations to Cotter for his 1000th post on One For The Other Thumb!

- The USTA is looking for volunteers for the U.S. Open between August 29 to September 13, 2009. It probably helps if you live in or around New York.

- Finally, you know Jim Shearer from VH1's Top 20 Video Countdown and Yinz Luv 'Da Steelers. Well, he also puts out Yinz Luv 'Da Guins videos like this one:

You need to get on that list! It was killer, if I do say so myself...
