What you’ll find in The Ticket on your newstands, app and online tomorrow:

The Descendants: when it comes to flicks about a mid-life crisis, director Alexander “Sideways” Payne is your go-to guy. Plus five great mid-life crisis films to put you in the mood.

Lana Del Rey: the Pop Corner guide to Ms Del Rey. Ailbhe Malone decides if she is a faker or a shaker.

Maverick Sabre: how Michael Stafford went from being the odd-one-out with the funny accent in New Ross to the man with the soulful plan via hip-hop.

Plus reviews of new album releases (including Leonard Cohen, Delorentos, Django Django, Juan Selada, Perfume Raft, Goldfrapp, The Maccabees, “Voguing & the House Ballroom Scene of NYC 1989-92″, The Internet, Maverick Sabre, Nels Cline), movies (The Descendants, House Of Tolerance, Intruders, A Monster In Paris, Like Crazy, Night of the Hunter, The Grey), games, apps, listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times tomorrow in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. I’ve got the moves like cheddar.
