Go Slip, Sliding Away.

After missing his classmate's birthday party, a five-year-old in England was issued a $24 invoice for failing to RSVP. The boy, then refused to pay, citing the fact that he was five and jobless at the moment. His parents also refused to cough up the cash, mostly because the whole thing is stupid. Still, the spurned kid's parents are planning on going the small claims court route, because apparently their time is worth so little.

Your time is much more valuable, we know, which is why we're hoping the following list will help you save a few precious moments when you're deciding what to do this evening. — Cory Graves

Oral Fixation: “Slippery Slope” at Texas Theatre
For the encore presentation of the favorite Dallas storytelling series, folks will dish on times in their lives when everything slipped out of their control, from a car crash that left one storyteller paralyzed from the chest down to a five-figure credit card debt another performer was barely able to escape from. As always, promises Oral Fixation director Nicole Stewart, the details are juicy. — CG

Freezepop at Dada
Boston bitpop group, Freezepop, don't just make a brand of electro-pop that sounds straight up ripped from video games, but several of the band's songs have actually been incorporated into various games. Hell, founding member Kasson Crooker actually left the band to work at Harmonix, y'know, the company responsible for the Guitar Hero series. — CG

The Naked Gun at Alamo Drafthouse
From the files of '80s TV cop comedy Police Squad! comes a trilogy of oddball films in which Leslie Nielsen and co-star O.J. Simpson are unlikely detectives that, much like Inspector Gadget, always seem to bungle their way to success. And this is the film that launched the franchise. — CG

Step Brothers at Sundown (Free)
Of all of Will Ferrell's films, 2008's Step Brothers is the one where he pushes his consummate manboy schtick to its utter limits. Actually, 2003's Elf might have something to say about that, but come on, Christmas was so like a month ago. — CG

Straight Tequila Night at Twilite Lounge (Free)
This one's name doesn't just imply a rough Wednesday night and an even rougher Thursday morning at work. Straight Tequila Night is actually the name of an '80s and '90s pop country cover band comprised mostly of Granada Theater employees. But, hey, the idea's been put out there. — Trace McCaslin
