As I become more and more of an old man, I find that life gets in the way of blogging. I figured that I would "go black" as soon as the new year hit, but I also thought that we would be busier than what we have been. It has been busy, don't get me wrong, but as I author this post, there is a strange calmness. Perhaps the chaos will begin within an hour.
I have several full-length columns I have wanted to author for quite some time. Hopefully I can finally find some time to get started on that tonight and produce something before I go into work in the morning.
In lieu of more of my world-famous columns
(I haven't had time to port them over to Xanga), I offer you my schedule for the next few weekends.
This weekend I will venture to the theater to see Defiance
Next weekend Dark Knight re-releases. I plan to go back up to Nashville to see the Dark Knight on a flat IMAX once again as a pleb. I assume the next viewing of that film in IMAX will be when I have the power to control what plays in my own personal IMAX theater.
Also on my entertainment radar is Robin William's stand up tour. (As far as I know there's no official name for this tour yet.) Robin will be in Birmingham, AL
on Saturday, March 21 @ 2000. You can even purchase a VIP package that includes a meet and greet. Seats are $65 or $87 regular, VIP Meet and Greet $437.50
I've considered doing the Meet and Greet (price aside) but I think that's a cheap way to meet someone. I think a better way to meet a celebrity is to bump into them at a charity event or at the ballpark or something.
Anyway, I've thought about what I would say to Mr. Williams were I afforded the opportunity to meet him. I think I'd thank him for intelligently representing his political viewpoints in such a manner that, even though I disagree with him, I was able to laugh at the absurdities he pointed out in the interview with Charlie Rose during the press junket for One Hour Photo
. Or maybe just simplify that to "Thanks for the laughs over the years."
But this morning while I was composing this post in my head whilst getting ready for work, I considered inviting him back to Birmingham for the 11th Annual Sidewalk Motion Picture Festival.
