“Don't do it,” whispers “Like Crazy” star Felicity Jones. “Stay away!” urges co-star Anton Yelchin. That's their advice for people thinking of getting into a long-distance relationship, and the actors are only sort of kidding. The romantic, sad “Like Crazy,” opening Nov. 4, demonstrates that bridging a love across London and Los Angeles isn't as easy as just knowing the other person cares about you. When British college student Anna (Jones) violates her visa to spend the summer with her American boyfriend Jacob (Yelchin, pronounced yell-chin)

I would like to talk with you candidly about a very personal subject matter to me. I'm speaking, of course, of mascots. We had an incident in Wrigleyville (of course, where else?). A man parading around as an unsanctioned mascot gets picked on by an inebriated fan and retaliates with a punch. And this got me to thinking. I'd like to start a club for what I call "honest mascots" out there. Think about it. Look at Clark, the Cubs' new mascot. We hate him already, because every time you see him, he has a goofy grin on his face.

Envy Michelle Obama's wardrobe?  Her favorite designer is making the first lady's style a bit more accessible. Jason Wu, the designer behind her 2008 inaguaration gown, has launched a contemporary line called  Miss Wu, sold exclusively at Nordstrom. “Having the first lady as a fan and a client is pretty amazing and inspiring,” Wu said.  “I've really enjoyed dressing her, I hope she keeps wearing my clothes.” Wu was in Chicago on Thursday promoting the new line, and we caught up with him at Michigan Avenue's Nordstrom.

Harold Ramis is the best writer and director from Chicago, period. That isn't a hyperbolic statement or a knee-jerk reaction to the news of his death Monday. Nobody else comes close - and let me remind you that acclaimed director John Hughes spent the first 12 years of his life in Grosse Pointe, Mich., before his family relocated to Northbrook. Ramis, on the other hand, was the son of shopkeepers who owned a food and liquor store in Rogers Park. He attended Washington University in St. Louis.

Democracy makes some Chicagoans frisky, it seems. See these election-related Craigslist Chicago's Missed Connections posts as proof: From Election Day: -I walked in right behind you at the polling place which was the wrong one. I noticed you turned and smiled at me warmly twice. Made me get butterflies a bit inside. You're really cute. Seems like you might be a teacher. If you read this drop me a line, I would like to know more about you.....tall guy standing behind you. -In the elevator, you mentioned you had put on some clothes to vote.

It's been a difficult month if you enjoy Fanta or hate watching the Cubs lose. Last month in New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed a ban on sodas larger than 16 ounces in restaurants and other select outlets. Meanwhile, the small town of Middleborough, Mass., earlier this month overwhelmingly passed a ban on cursing. Pending (unlikely) approval from the state's attorney general's office, police will be required to hand out $20 citations to people who say naughty words in public.

I never thought we would see the day when the Muppets would have to defend themselves against accusations of pushing a liberal agenda. But sure enough, during a press conference to promote their new movie last month, Kermit and Miss Piggy found themselves doing just that. For anyone who hasn't seen the movie, the villain is an oil baron named Tex Richman who wants to destroy the Muppet studios in order to dig for oil. Shortly after the movie debuted in November, a conservative guest on a Fox News program claimed the Muppets were brainwashing kids with anti-corporate...

Overcompensation isn't always a bad thing, at least not for the new PlayStation Vita. I got the feeling playing the portable gaming system that Sony is desperately trying to make us forget that we live in an “Angry Birds” world where portable gaming is now ruled by cheap apps and games designed for smartphones or tablets. The Vita is stuffed so full of gee-whiz features, it's like the physical manifestation of Sony throwing down the gauntlet and saying, “Oh yeah, you think making a bulky, gaming-heavy handheld system is a bad idea?

The first season finale of A&E's "Bates Motel" ended with one character lying in a pool of blood, but does a creepy new teaser reveal who killed Miss Watson? The home video sex tape shows Miss Watson (Keegan Connor Tracy) being distracted by whomever is shooting the video before she leaves for the dance. Is it Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore), who experiences "blackouts" that cause him to forget what he's done? Or was someone else inside her apartment on the night of her murder? "Bates Motel" reopens for Season 2 at 8 p.m. March 3. A photo on Miss Watson's nightstand...

If you're still getting back on the grid after your holiday, you may have missed a few things music-realted. Let's catch you up! Drake dropped not one, but TWO new songs.  Maybe he got hyped watching all the bowl games? We don't know. He liberated the two tracks "We Made It Freestyle (feat. Soulja Boy)" and "Trophies" over the past six days. Listen to them below. (Heads up: "Trophies" should be the song you play when you win your softball championship this year.)       Rick Ross got sued, then...

While we're all busy breaking up the Bulls, let's break up the Bears, too. We're good at that around here, breaking teams up before they win anything. But before that, we say goodbye to the Metrodome. If there ever was a facility that won't be missed by the Bag, this is the one. Never liked the noise, turf, people, roof, that silly horn and, of course, the teams. Twins and Vikings, both hated. Here are my Top 5 moments: 1. Sept. 19, 1985: Jim McMahon throws three TDs off the bench.

From Breaking Bad to breaking just plain awful. I want to take this opportunity to say goodbye to Charles Tillman personally. Something tells me the old vet will not be back with the Bears next year, even if he does return form his season-ending injury. That's the way it goes in the NFL, and it never ends pretty. But Peanut gave us some great, great memories. Interceptions and takeaways, one of the best lockdown corners ever. When it comes to Chicago, I can't keep track of the tweaks anymore.

Talk about missed connections. CTA riders who think they wait too long for buses and trains should try calling the customer-service number for Ventra, the CTA's new fare payment system. Going Public called the Ventra hotline, 877-669-8368, three times Monday and waited on hold the first time for 19 minutes before the call disconnected. The second time was a six-minute wait before disconnection. The third time, the call went through - after a 17-minute wait. CTA spokeswoman Tammy Chase said the Ventra hotline on Monday saw "an...

It took Megan Mercier a few years to realize that the "Grrrl Power" motto she'd grown up hearing in the '80s and '90s might be a myth. "We were told that we could do anything in spite of our gender, that anything was possible, and so we expected it," the Neo-Futurists ensemble member said. "The problem is that it wasn't true. " So she decided to create "The Miss Neo Pageant," which taps a traditional beauty contest structure as a jumping-off point to explore the broader range of life's competitions.

The word "wang" probably conjures up a few images in your mind. Maybe it's the bar on Broadway in East Lakeview. Or perhaps it's the recently leaked pics of Prince Harry, covering up his royal scepter. You'd be right either way. In fact, Wang's bar plays up the double-entendre and plasters its Facebook page with images of hot men. It's worth becoming a Facebook fan, even if the images aren't always safe for work. The bar also wallpapers its restroom with much more delicious - and by "delicious," I mean explicit - images of ... wangs.

** (out of four) About seven weeks after the end of “30 Rock” we get … a Tina Fey movie that may as well be about Liz Lemon. In “Admission,” workaholic, Valentine's Day-hating Portia (Fey) isn't good with kids and can't get her life in order (admittedly a common problem for female leads in weak romantic comedies). Hell, in her role as an admissions officer for Princeton, Portia constantly searches for deal-breakers in the academic red flags that deem thousands of students unworthy of the university's roughly 1,300...

As Phil Emery prepares for his second Bears draft, he would be wise to study his predecessor Jerry Angelo. The Bears will pick in the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of the 2013 draft. RedEye takes a look at Angelo's best and worst from those rounds. FIRST ROUND BEST - Tommie Harris, defensive tackle, 2004 WORST - Michael Haynes, defensive end, 2003 Angelo's poor track record in the first round is well-documented, and we could debate his best and worst picks till the cows come home.

  *** (out of four) If the “concept” behind Cold War Kids' “concept album” “Dear Miss Lonelyhearts” is returning to the California band's original sound--indistinguishable on 2011's “Mine is Yours” - the new record is a success. OK, the disc actually is inspired by Nathanael West's novel “Miss Lonelyhearts,” but CWK seems to have bridged the gap between 2008's brilliant “Loyalty to Loyalty” and the hollow, overproduced “Mine is Yours.” A few outliers keep “Dear Miss Lonelyhearts” from being a thundering...
