Miguel's Guide to Grooving On Summer Movies 

Summer, for some reason, is the time of movies. If you find you aren't enjoying the movies like you once did, here are some simple tips for summer movie enjoyment.

1. Go to movies no one else wants to see. This is pretty self explanatory. A good bonus of seeing movies outside the main stream is the numerous discussions you will avoid with people who see drivel.

2. Go at weird times of day. Nothing adds to the enjoyment of film like being able to shush children and old ladies at, say, a 10:30 am showing of "Prairie Home Companion". However, weirdos are likely to go at these times. Watch out for the guy with the sacks and the woman painting her toe nails.

3. Be a pretentious prick. No movie theater 3 way with the two chicks eyeing you ahead in line can match the warm inner glow of pretense. And, no one will call the police when you congratulate yourself elaborately for seeing a Robert Altman Film while those poor fools are going to see X3.

4. Blog about movies no one else wants to see. Want to here my thoughts on how, in many ways, the movie could be seen as an antithesis of "Nashville"? Do you even know what I am talking about? Ha ha ha ha! 2 years, why do you ask?

5. Don't get high. You can't get high and go see a movie in George Bush's America.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
