23' Skiddooo!!!

On Tuesday, my friend Allison and I got to go see the premiere of 'The Number 23' with Jim Carrey. It was pretty good though it was less about going mad and more about figuring out the history of the book that the number comes from. And it was no where near as bloody as I had hoped.

But that's not what I want to talk about. What I want to talk about is going to an advance screening and all that is involved. First, you have to get there really early. If you don't, you won't make it into the theatre. I got to the theatre an hour and a half before the start and there were already people there.

Second, there is this subset of the movie going population that are constantly at movie screenings. Two of the people standing next to me were in this little club. I say club because one of the guys was actually in a movie review club and would go to advanced screenings and then write reviews. He said he has been going to screenings for 21 years.

If you know where to look, you can find all of these free tickets if you read certain websites and newspapers. Then, you can just go to all the free movies you can fit in. It is actually a pretty genius idea. You get to see movies that haven't even been released yet for free. Pretty cool.

That is all,

Newt

I must not be paying attention... I don't get the title of the post. All I think of when I read it is "skinamarinkeedinkadink skinamarinkadoo"

I want to be in the cool club that goes to movies for free! Hook me up with the info, yo.

Erin, why don't you have a blog? I would enjoy reading it probably and maybe we could at least have one Accountant who kept up with it... :)

I love the fact that you would only 'probably' read it. As if you have anything better to do.

Touche! ...tear...

Trinity, be nice to your friends - there are only so many people out there who are going to stick with you, and you probably want to keep Thomas on your good side. Geez, silly boys.

I figure if I don't have a blog, then I can't be chastised for not keeping up with it. Wow...that's not a very good reason not to do something. Maybe I'll start one!! Right in the middle of tax craziness!! That could lead to some very interesting posts. Hmmmmm.....
