Nothing To See Here. Go About Your Business.

I really don't have anything to post about today, but I actually feel guilty if I don't put something up, so you're getting boring crap that you have to read and comment on if you don't want me to feel unloved. You wouldn't want that, now would you?

Today, I was reminded of another perq. that comes with DGA membership. Free Movies...Yay! At this time of year I receive letters from all of the studios encouraging me to go to a screening of movies they think are award worthy...because I get to vote for the DGA awards. If I remember correctly, only directors get to vote for best director, but I get to vote for best picture. In addition to these special screenings, I can show up at practically any theater in town, show my DGA card and get in free to anything that's playing right now...with a guest.

Cool, Huh?

What else? It snowed north and west of the city today. Some places got as much as 14". It was rain and wind all day in the city, but cold. The furnace finally had to kick in today. Guess what? Some of you live in Minnesota or Michigan or Alaska and you expect this crap in October. I don't! I'm supposed to have another month before I have to think about shovels and sand and all that other crap.

What else? According to an auto-email from the Postal Service, the surprise was delivered yesterday. I have not seen photos online yet and I demand publication. Sometimes you do get what you asked for...maybe just with a slightly different interpretation.

I have a kind of pissy post in mind about Homeland Security but it's going to take some actual research if I don't want to sound like a moron, so you'll have to wait for that.

So, basically, your elsewhere bemoaned huge membership dues are nothing but a prepaid yearly cinema pass. Sweeeet!

And while you might think I'd be all over taking advantage of that...not so much.

What!?! You mean to have us believe you didn't use your DGA card to see Beverly Hills Chihuahua? I'm sorry, but that just seems impossible.

Look who lives in NYC (New York City!, ur sorry) and doesn't have anything to post about except going to shitty movies. City that never sleeps my ass.


Yes, I have the package in hand. I will take pictures and post them today. After I stop laughing, because every single time I look at it I start giggling uncontrollably like a little girl.

Don't you just hate that? You have an awesome idea for a blog post, but then you have to do research before you can write about it, and then it's not so much an awesome idea as it's work, and too much of it for a blog post, and so it all sinks back into the ether from whence it came...

Nice thing about dating someone who works for SAG? SAG Film Society. We get to see movies at the sa-weet DGA Theater, sometimes before they're released. And none of them was Beverly Hills Chihuahua.

Your in NYC (generally speaking) for goodness sake! Art house movie theaters. Foreign film movie theaters. Get off your butt and go!

::goes off mumbling about some people not taking advantage of the advantages a large city offers over a small town like where I live::

You're in New York City! You could post about the pimps and C.H.U.Ds, for cryin' out loud!
