As the title suggests, “Don Jon,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt's debut feature as a writer/director, centers on a stud. Gordon-Levitt stars as a working-class man from New Jersey who beds whomever he wants and yet still remains unsatisfied with his love life. No matter how many beautiful women he sleeps with, he needs something more, and so far his only true fulfillment has come from cyber-three-ways between him, his hand, and his laptop. Yes, his name is Jon, and he's a porn addict. Such an affliction has doubtless existed since the dawn of time but until the advent of the Internet, you were less likely to encounter it. But what used to require both effort and money to acquire now streams into your house at no cost.

It doesn't take much to entertain Andrew Kiorkof once he's logged on to his laptop. There's plenty of files to choose from on his desktop, including an array of music and video games. While Kiorkof will frequently check them, they don't seem nearly quite as important to him between August and November. In that time, Kiorkof, a senior offensive lineman on the Crescenta Valley High football team, will have game film sent to his laptop by members of the Falcons coaching staff so he can immediately go to work breaking down who he will next be up against across the line of scrimmage.

CENTRAL GLENDALE — Salvation Army Glendale, which has had to grapple with a precipitous increase in demand for services over the past two years, got some support of its own Wednesday after a group of community leaders donated thousands of food items and about $7,000. Since 2007, Salvation Army Glendale has seen a 200% increase in the number of people seeking help, Capt. Rio Ray said. At the same time, donations to the center have slumped with the battered economy, creating a crunch for resources, he added.
