Kansas City, sometimes you make me sad. This video is definitely NOT SAFE FOR WORK (you've been warned). The guy in the video pulled down his pants and then tried to crash the Foster the People show at RecordBar on March 31.
Apparently, the video was shot by We Barbarians. Even sadder than seeing this guy's crank was listening to him get racist. Hope he enjoyed getting rolled and arrested. May your weekend be better than this guy's.
April was a great month for cupcakes. (Or "cupcakeries," according to Fat City's Jonathan Bender, who clearly had his tongue firmly in his cheek). But many dining venues that were scheduled to open this month will actually be opening in May -- including Chubby's on Barry Road and the 119th Street Diner.
The Country Club Plaza got its first all-cupcake bakery, Cupcake a la Mode, at 4639 Wornall, across from Houston's. (Cupcake a la Mode's original location is just west of the Plaza.) And Eudora, Kansas -- the tiny town on the route to Lawrence -- introduced Cami's Cakes, a start-up business created by Cami SanRomani; she's open as a retail operation only one day a month now but hopes to be open more frequently by summer.
A 17-year-old high school student claims a couple of school resource officers beat the hell out of him because he wouldn't pull up his pants. This is a truly fucked-up story if the student's side is true (and, as you can imagine, the officers are telling a different story).
The Wichita Eagle reported that Jonathan Villarreal, a sophomore at Derby High School, claimed that he was walking to a bus stop -- probably more like waddling if his pants were sagging -- after school Wednesday afternoon when one of the officers told him to pull 'em up. Villarreal told the officer he could wear them however he wanted since it was after school (and probably not in the most polite of terms). Then came the pain.
Kemet "ThePhantom*" Coleman supported Sly James' candidacy for mayor with some rhymes. Now the mayor's son, Kyle James, is rapping with thePhantom*.
ThePhantom is promoting his upcoming album, The Fountain of Youth, by releasing a free song every Friday (he's calling it Phantom Phriday). This week's song features Kyle James on a track called "I Won't Lose." "Only a few know he raps (and is quite good)," thePhantom said in an e-mail. Listen to it after the jump (and be ready for some curse words).

U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II may have to learn to appreciate mud runs if he wants to stay in Congress. Missouri state lawmakers drew up a map that extends the former mayor of Kansas City's district into Ray and Saline counties.
An upcoming event in Richmond gives Cleaver the opportunity to get a feel for his new domain. On Saturday, May 7, at the Ray County Fair Grounds, truck owners will gather to test their skills at traversing a mud bog that's 200 feet long.
Sur La Table opened on the Plaza this morning at 430 Nichols Road in the former Sony Style space.
"The store is absolutely beautiful. I hope people come in and learn what we're all about," manager Harold Barillas says.
The 5,000-square-foot store is filled with electronics, kitchen goods and a built-out coffee bar. There's also a strong emphasis on grilling with three separate areas for barbecue items.
Golly, lobbying groups are going after politicians early this year. And Sen. Claire McCaskill, who, according to most sources, is vulnerable in her 2012 re-election bid, has found herself targeted by the League of Women Voters.
Earlier this month, McCaskill voted for an amendment to a bill that would restrict the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to limit greenhouse gases. The League, which is nonpartisan but has supported environmental protection for decades, is going after McCaskill with a stark new ad (watch it after the jump) that basically says the senator's vote is the reason a little girl is stuck inside with a breathing machine.
The Kansas City, Missouri, City Council on Thursday approved a plan to allow a controversial office building to be built on the Country Club Plaza. A majority of the council felt that accommodating the Polsinelli Shughart law firm, the building's prospective tenant, trumped concerns about the design's apparent violation of the Plaza Urban Design and Development Plan.
The vote was 8-3, with two members of the council abstaining. Departing councilwoman Beth Gottstein and Sharon Sanders Brooks refused to make a decision, a dereliction of duty that marks a fitting end to their respective tenures.
A Missouri tattoo artist is suing Warner Bros. in federal court claiming "copyright infringement" due to a replica Mike Tyson face tattoo that appears on actor Ed Helms' face in The Hangover II.
Tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill wants an injunction blocking the "pirated tattoo" from showing up in the movie, which hits theaters May 26, and in ads. In his lawsuit, Whitmill says he tattooed Tyson in Las Vegas in 2003, and the former boxing champion signed a release saying Whitmill owned the copyright to the artwork. The film's trailer shows Helms waking up after a drunken night with that tat on his face. Tyson made a cameo in the first film. Read the full lawsuit after the jump.
