As I work on getting my proverbial shit together and writing a post about something fun and exciting, here’s a list of 3 things you should check out.
Free movie screenings Web sites – Through my Meetup.com friends, I’ve found a number of Web sites that offer passes to free movie screenings in the L.A. area. I’ve gotten to see about 7 movies for free as a result – only 3 of those movies would I have been willing to pay full admission to see, so it was well worth the time to sign up. If you live near a big city, chances are very, very good that these sites will have screenings in your area. Here are a few links:
Knocked Up – I saw this movie at a free screening this past Thursday – great, great film. Well written, well acted, and extremely funny. The theme of relationship management was handled so realistically that I actually forgot I was watching a movie. I will have to see it again to catch the lines I missed because of all the laughing in the theatre. Go see this.
America Jr. – I went to a party on Saturday night and saw several people I hadn’t seen in about 2 years. One of those people was Todd, the writer/co-creator of America Jr. , an online comic strip about a small American town that becomes its own country. Great concept that’s brilliantly executed by the illustrators Brothers Fraim in conjunction with Todd & Nick’s clever writing and storylines. I would not be surprised if we saw this comic turned into a TV show by fall 2008, if not sooner.
