I saw Dark Tower.
It was not horrible.
It was not great, it was not canon.
But it was not horrible.
Some GA tickets are only $20 -- might go with one or both of the kids, just for the spectacle.
They do! I will check them out!
Figure a bunch of you might have been through this with your parents/grandparents -- my FIL is in transitional care now, going into assisted living/memory care in the next week or so, and I have been given the task to find a hospital bed for him. Anybody work with a supply company that they really liked? Or really didn't? Any opinions would be helpful.
@garyburrito Wouldn't some sort of 'fumbalya' joke land better?
But they missed an obvious Minnesota callback with that duck duck goose joke
I thought the same thing.
MST3K was pretty good -- I probably over-romanticize how good the old ones were, and having new bot voices was always going to throw me, but I laughed hard at a few places. Watched the first two, will watch more.
Gonna watch the first episode tonight with my wife. Many of our free-time hours (pre-babies, of course) were spent watching MST3K. And when both my brother and my friend Tom were over, the two of them would get such giggle-fits that it would spur the rest of us on. We'd have to rewind the tape at least twice a show because they were laughing so hard, we'd miss the next riff.
I also downloaded a bunch of the "tough-guy" names that the bots would come up with, and somehow it wound up in the hands of my nephews, so I totally anticipate during Easter dinner having names like "Stump Chunkman" and "Bulk VanderHuge" being thrown my way.
When we moved to SE Mpls in the late 80s, I was pretty pumped because we were only a couple blocks from the Union (back then, it was pretty close to the White Castle on Central/Hennepin) and would see bands there all the time. Then the owners discovered Jesus and it became the New Union, and then closed and reopened up the road on Central.
Kinda sucked -- it wasn't a great venue, but for a couple years, they booked a lot of the same bands that played at Cabooze, like the Hoopsnakes and Limited Warranty.
