Today we visit with writer/director Nicholas Maggio... he made the new John Travolta action thriller “Mob Land” for his 13-year-old self. "I was 13 and in my friend's basement in Pennsylvania, and we got a copy of the VHS for Reservoir Dogs," Maggio admitted. "I remember having my mind just absolutely blown that this was all possible. I didn't know that film because I grew up with my dad. We watched Ben-Hur and Lawrence of Arabia. We didn't watch French Connection or Bullet. I had never seen this gritty kind of film before.
MOB LAND - In a small town struggling with addiction, a local sheriff (John Travolta) tries to maintain the peace when desperate family man Shelby (Shiloh Fernandez) robs a pill mill. The supposedly easy score takes a violent turn, alerting the New Orleans mafia's revenge-seeking enforcer. (Stephen Dorff)

Do you ever feel bored at work? If you’re average, you do – for most of the workweek, according to new research. A survey of 2,000 employed US adults found that 46% are bored at work for at least 3 days per week. Among those who manage to stay engaged longer, many set professional goals to stay motivated. Like what? Well, making more money is always good – 54% said they aim to do that. Other top motivational goals included: striving to move up within the company (53%) and aiming to help create something new (50%). The survey also found that feelings of dissatisfaction typically come within 2 years of working the same role (46%).

Turkish airline is looking to find out if some travelers will pay
extra to avoid sitting near babies and small children. Corendon
Airlines will sell an adults-only zone — no one under 16 allowed —
on flights between Amsterdam and Curacao starting in November. It
says people traveling without children will get quiet surroundings,
and parents won’t have to worry that their crying or fidgeting kids
will annoy fellow passengers. How much to enjoy one of the 93 seats
in the ‘no-kids zone’? An extra 45 euros, or $49 US dollars.

It’s true that “Jeopardy!” passed on LeVar Burton, but his TV days are far from over. He’s about to become host of “Trivial Pursuit”! TMZ reports that Burton and his team are close to locking in terms for him to become executive producer and host of the new Trivial Pursuit game show, which will be aired on the CW. A source says things are almost finalized on the deal, and that the series already has a 12-episode order. Hasbro honchos apparently started considering Burton for the job after he was snubbed by Sony for the highly-coveted Jeopardy! hosting job.

Over the summer, you probably, at least once, spent hours fighting for tickets, picking the perfect concert outfit, talked excitedly with friends, and eventually got to watch your musical hero perform live and in person – whether it be Beyonce, Taylor Swift or Luke Combs. But then what? Apparently “post-concert depression” is a thing. After the anticipation, effort, and excitement of a monumental concert (or other big event), it’s normal to experience a slump or even depression-like symptoms, according to psychologist Michele Leno. While she notes that the symptoms are typically mild and don’t usually get to the point of actual depression, she does offer some tips on how to get back on track after an exhilarating experience like a big concert that was a high point of your summer:
• Identify to yourself why the event was so meaningful.
• Reflect on why it made you so happy, what you enjoyed so much about it.
• Make more moments of joy – whether they involve meeting up with friends or buying a new outfit.
• Live vicariously through others. When you see social media posts about other great concerts, take a moment to enjoy what your friends are showing you.
• Ignore the haters who don’t understand your letdown afterward.
• Reach out for help if you need it. Maybe talk to others who went to the same show, who might be feeling the same way.
