Los Angeles . . . Fog City. [Dec. 12th, 2004|03:01 am]
Sauce1977


There's a thick fog out here tonight . . . the house party was rather close to my house, so the drive back was easy.

Today, I caught The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Right now, it's only in Los Angeles and New York, and the only theatre in LA for the film is The Grove's Pacific 14.

I enjoyed Aquatic . . . I'll talk about it more when I have more rest.

After the film, Brad and I ate reubens at Canter's. The reubens came with a choice of corned beef, pastrami, or two styles of turkey. Brad chose the corned beef, and I chose the pastrami. I didn't think turkey reuben was possible, but I guess that it's the style of the sandwich and the fixings that make it a 'reuben.'

When we went to pay the bill, the people working the register looked agitated. Apparently, someone walked out with paying only 17 bucks on a 28 dollar total.

We went back to the apartment, and Brad executed some quick fixes on my computer. What would have taken me a few hours to become familiar and fix . . . he did it in less than fifteen minutes. Thank heavens for good friends.

The house party was an obligation of Brad's, but I joined him. Most of his film school pals were there, and I've been around them enough to be comfy. I have no problems striking up conversations with strangers, so that worked.

I'll miss this city, but it's necessary for me to return to Detroit. My Heidi is enough reason for necessary.

i KNEW that the "limited release" meant it would be at the grove or the arclight, as those are the most expensive, ridiculous theatres in this city. that makes me mad.

The film sells out like hotcakes as a result.

Don't forget, the nation-wide release is the 25th.

It's worth the 10 dollars or so to head out to The Grove and see it. Heck, you should purchase the tickets online and use the kiosk to get them at the theatre.
