3 major loves )

Okay, that's all.

However, I've had it since 2004 so I can't delete it.

Catch-up )

I became addicted to Tumblr last fall so that's where I usually am nowadays.

2010 better be awesome.

Happy New Year!

WCCO aired this video months ago, but I found it again because I needed a good smile and laugh tonight.

I want to attend a wedding like this!! )
dancingstella: (Whip It)
I have Monday-Wednesday off next week!

Before Fox Searchlight added a Mpls screening (which is booked), I RSVP'ed for two tickets to the Milwaukee one, which takes place next Tuesday!

Yes, I know I am a crazy geek. Yes, I know the movie comes out three days after next Tuesday, but to select theaters. Who cares? I get a road trip and a date with my friend Dani!!! :D :D :D

I'm super excited for this movie, even more so after I spent last weekend watching nothing but roller derby!!

/I am hoping to start volunteering with the roller derby teams here in MN, too!!

EDIT: 01.) The MN roller derby teams are full for volunteers. Woe
02.) Whip It is an AWESOME movie!!! Seen it twice now.

Off to work Mary Poppins now!!!

I have been home for a week now and have gotten back in the swing of my daily rountine. It's been ok, I guess. Work is the same yet somehow worse. Awesome. Oh well, must make do.

few trip notes )

I have the next three days off work so I think I am going to go back to work and finally see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince tonight!

When did it approach so fast? It just means the slow season is just around the corner. YAYES!

We had 8 prints of HP6 (midnights only, drops down to 4 for regular business). They all sold out by 4pm yesterday. Then, at 10:30pm, they added two 3am shows. Yeah, that only did 37 or so, I think. I didn't look at the final numbers. If they had thought of it sooner they might have done better business but whatever.

I was called in to help at 11:30pm. I had a feeling I was going to be but I was hoping to be wrong. I wish I had gotten a picture of the parking lot. The only time I think the mall parking lot is that full is on Black Friday. And maybe not even then since we're not MoA.

It was a crazy night. I stayed to help clean and shut down the projectors because I knew the guys would just slag off otherwise. I got out of there at 4am-something. I didn't end up getting home until close to 5am.


Now I get to go back and work opening day. Fun. Double fisting coffee is in my future, I think.

I only watched the last 10-15 minutes of the film, but didn't hear much of the dialogue since I was watching from booth, next to our noisier-than-usual projector. I will watch it on Thursday or Friday (a.k.a. my days off!!!)

The weeks have been blurring together more so than usual lately. It's kind of scary. I get to go on a three week vacation in two weeks. I just have to survive Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince mania at work (we have 8 prints for the midnights!) and then I am home free!

List of ramblings and such to remember )

I have to pack up my belongings (last day dog/house sitting) before I go to work.

By some amazing chance of fate, I am (FINALLY) seeing (500) Days of Summer (a.k.a. my favourite movie I have yet to see) tonight!!

dancingstella: (Ewan - Too Much!)
I'm just getting home after working all night. Thanks, 7 sold out Transformers 2 midnight shows.

I haven't driven home from work while the sun was rising since my Crapmike days. Awesome.

Only, yeah, not so much.

I go to bed now.

I watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine tonight after work. One word: lame. It was about showing off what could be done with special effects/the characters' abilities (probably the whole point). The guy playing Gambit sure was nice on the eyes, though. Heh. I recommend to always go for the shallow when a movie isn't worth much else. But, to be fair, he was awesome as Gambit and I thought he wasn't on long enough.

In saying all that, I will be watching the movie two more times this week )

I have to fill out and hand in my availability form for my downtown job. I, uh, kinda forgot about it. Oops.

Yesterday, projectionists everywhere cursed Paramount when they got their prints of Star Trek because Paramount locked the canisters. Pointless and stupid*. Don't they realise that not only are projectionists film geeks but are also (most likely) Star Trek nerds?

I mean, come on, they're going to take the time to crack the code themselves. Duh.

It wasn't long after 7pm last night that my co-worker found the lock code on a film tech site. Awesome. Our boss still wouldn't let us preview last night, though. He wouldn't allow it until after 7am today since Paramount wasn't giving the lock codes until then.

So, I'm off to pump myself full with coffee - since I didn't get home until 2am but I'm a coffee whore so whatever - and watch a movie about a TV show that I hardly ever watched. Why? I find the trailers that freaking awesome.

*Besides, it was IDIOTIC for Paramount to lock the canisters since shows start tonight anyway. Fail, Paramount, fail!

ETA - 9:40am: my co-worker and I loved the movie!

Let the summer blockbuster movie season begin!!!!

ETA: The Soloist, a week old print, is horribly scratched. Awesome.
dancingstella: (Lorelai - MMM...Coffee)
I'm hungry. And tired. Yay.

01.) The Unusals is one of the new shows I am absolutely loving right now!!! I adore this show so so so much!!! But it's on ABC (Already Being Cancelled). Woe.

02.) We finally got rid of the Watchmen soundtrack at work!! Instead of the "gouge your eyes out with a rusty spoon" movie tunes music we have been playing movie scores at our theater. The Watchmen left our theater a few weeks ago. The score was scaring children. And my boss said he found it depressing. HA. So he is playing the Ben Button score once again. Oh, not good. I bought The Soloist score tonight, hoping he will put it in tomorrow.

03.) I need to plan a trip for June to the Northwest. Because a) I want a vacation and b) I fell in love with the Northwest two years ago and I miss it.

M. Ward and Neko Case this weekend!!!

ETA: Adding a fourth good thing to remember this:

04.) I built all four films last week!!! One of the guys was sent home early (an hour and half after his shift started) because there was nothing for two projectionists to do! Hee. Also, I built all the ad packs this week on top of building one of the three movies. I could have built another movie but I didn't feel like it since I had built ad packs for 12 of the 16 films. Disney movies don't get ads. We like Disney because of this. And I didn't think the stacked movie with two showtimes needed ads (the guys thought differently and built one).
