Local Comedy Clubs

by on Sep.29, 2012, under Fun Stuff, Life, Movies, TV

One of the attractions of living in a city is that most cities have some sort of comedy club for local entertainment. Of course, the major metropolitan areas may have several comedy clubs, and on occasion the more proper theaters may book a top shelf comedian for a two or three night special performance when they are between the longer running plays and concert series.

The comedy club in Nashville is called Zanies and they do a pretty good job of pulling in nationally known comedians. I have seen several top acts from TV shows and movies there over the years, but haven’t been going lately.Since I a single, I am careful about where I go at night and am very cautious about where can I park safely and have a good chance of getting to my car and heading home without any incidents. The Zanies is in a shady part of town and their parking lot is way too small for the number of cars. If you are not there at least an hour before the show you have little chance of parking in their lot, and if there are two shows and you are trying to attend the second show, finding parking in the lot is practically impossible.

The shows are good, the drinks are good, the food is so-so and the parking is crap. I would love to see the relocate and be in a nicer and safer neighborhood. And a place with plenty of off street free parking would bring me to the club many times in a year.

Stupid fucking shows

by on Mar.05, 2012, under Life, Movies, TV

There are so many stupid fucking shows on TV. Jersey Shore is one of the worst of them. Let’s just make a show about people acting stupid and showing little to no morality what so ever. Really? All I can do is shake my head over this one. Then there is the teen moms show about teenage girls getting knocked up and acting the fool as well. Hello ! Am I the only person who sees this as a serious decline in the morality of our culture? I guess I am. Why in the hell would you let your teenage daughter be followed around by cameras to make you and your family look like morons?

It is hard to find good programming lately with all the crappy shows that they are showing on prime time TV. If you only have basic cable, you are screwed totally. I guess I will be upgrading my cable soon, because I really need something good to watch when I am at home. As it is, I mostly watch movies, and those are usually on demand stuff. Maybe I will just go out tonight, since there is nothing to watch on TV. I am not really sure. I feel like being a couch potato though and it irritates me to be bored.

Kids and movies

by on Feb.02, 2012, under Fun Stuff, Life, Movies

I love spending time with my kids, but boy is it fucking expensive to take them to the movies. I took them to see Beauty and the Beast 3D and it cost me and two kids almost seventy five dollars. I could not believe it. That made me remember why we stopped going to the theater to begin with. I have just been waiting for the movies to come out on DVD and then buy them for the kids, but this was 3D and it’s so much better at the theater.

The movie was great and the kids squealed with happiness throughout the entire thing. Of course so did all of the other kids and by the time we left I had the worst headache. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the hell out of it, I just ended up with a headache. I don’t mind that so long as my kids are happy and it was definitely worth it. 3D is pretty neat if you see it in the theater or on a flat screen that is set up for it, otherwise it just makes the movie look funny on a regular TV. We tried it before, so I know.

Renting a Movie Theater

by on Sep.18, 2011, under Life, Movies

Have you ever wanted to rent an entire movie theater? My brother used to do that for the Star Trek movie premieres. He was just crazy about Star Trek and when each movie came out, he got about 20 of his best Trekker friends to pitch in and they rented their own theater for the first showing on the first night. It didn’t really cost all that much and he loved being one of the first to see the new movies.

New Movies

by on Aug.09, 2011, under Life, Movies

I’ve fallen behind on watching the new movies. It seems like I have so much to do while the sun is up, and once it gets dark around 8:30 I still have to deal with cooking dinner and all the little household chores. By the time I’m ready to watch a movie, it is too late. I will just have to set aside one night for movies and make a point to get one at Redbox on my way home.
