And the weekends ahead will be fun - March 30/31 I'm meeting up with my friend Beth for a Joisey roadtrip to catch Type O Negative at the Starland & then my buddies Dead Rites at Dingbatz the next night & we've been invited to DR's video shoot :)
And April 6th Tiger Army is opening for Bad Religion at the Santa Monica Civic Center for a one-off show ("Heal the Bay") before they head off to Europe for two months, happy for a chance to see them before the summer Warped tour. Much as I love TA I really hate the outside and heat and sun and I just can't see myself doing 7 warpeds like I did in 2004 when they played so I'll aim for 2-3 this year & wait til they do another club tour for more shows. Nice early birthday present for Liz since it looks like I can't afford to travel far enuff for a good birthday show this year (with TA in Denmark on the 19th & AFI in Mexico City)
Caught "300" last weekend in the theater & enjoyed it even if they did make Xerxes come off like a crazy drag queen on a giant Las Vegas showgirl dias. Its not good when the big bad of a movie comes onscreen & the whole audience starts snickering.... still the cinematography and effects were amazing. Still want to see the Korean monster movie "The Host" that just opened & is getting good reviews & am dying to see Grindhouse, the theater showing 300 had a big display of the wonderfully retro posters & lobby cards, yay to Tarrantino & Rodriquez & their undying love of cheesey exploitation.
And went on a real movie binge with DVDs between a good sale on DeepDiscountDVD & the 4 for $20 bin at Blockbuster and got a ton including Silent Hill, The Descent, Tokyo Godfathers, The Lake House, V for Vendetta, Lady in the Water, Velvet Goldmine, The People Under The Stairs, Touch of Evil, Gangs of NY, Cat People (Kinski/McDowell remake), Below, Temptress Moon & cheap copies on ebay of The Prestige, The Aviator & Tideland...now just to find some free time to watch 'em! (And I know there are at least a few others I'm spacing....) Need to get the Departed too since I missed it in the theater.
Sigh... just a few more minutes here & then I can head home & do laundry & pack & hope to geta little extra sleep!! :)
