I want to thank Kimy and Junky for inviting me to the upcoming blogger "convention" in NYC in late September, but it doesn't look like I'll be attending. THIS TIME. But many thanks again for thinking of me, and too bad for you that I won't be around to make the event truly great. HA! I've never been to New York City, and am overdue to visit a place that has been ingrained into my consciousness thanks to countless TV shows and movies.
My last hope for Radiohead tickets at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday or Monday is eBay, but it shocks me how greedy people are! BLOODY MONEY-SUCKING SCALPER FIENDS! The closest seats to the stage were 75 bucks originally, and yet some of these people auctioning them off want double, triple, or even more than what they paid for. Shit, I know this is how capitalism works, but DAMN! Profit is the name of the game, but I'm really just a loyal fan of the band who wants to go to appreciate them live and in person. I'll try I guess for a few hours more, but it's hard not to be outbid; these are hot in-demand tickets to what promises to be an amazing concert for sure. If it is meant to be, I will get my hands on a ticket or two. If not, so be it.
A thoroughly enjoyable and strange film is Black Snake Moan. Christina Ricci looks terrific and is awesome in her role, as well as Samuel L. Jackson and the rest of the supporting cast, including a nice tormented performance by Justin Timberlake. Do check this movie out. I'm surprised it wasn't nominated for major film awards and didn't get more attention, because it is a good film, and quite different than what I expected.
I'm behind on some of your blogs, and my Internet access at home is currently down, so I'm using it at work as much as possible, but then again what else is new?
