Movie Review

Creep-

I will say that I'll see pretty much anything that a Duplass brother has something to do with. So since this movie's story was written by Mark Duplass and it stares him in the movie. I was in.

The movie is simple and low budget but has a constant feeling of tension and dread.

You know something bad is always about to happen, but you're not quite sure by who, or when or what.

It is a slow burn. But it only has an 82 minute runtime.

Well worth checking out.

Travel Tip From Helen Mirren

As a famous actress in high demand, Helen Mirren travels a lot. She has a neat travel tip that is not only practical, but also generous. Mirren doesn't pack any clothes except for underwear. After she flies into the airport of her destination city, she hires a taxi to take her to a thrift shop. There she buys the clothes that she needs. On her way back to the airport, she donates those clothes back to the shop.

The Sunday Express quotes her: I love a good charity shop, especially when I'm travelling. When I'm going to cold places, I take nothing - just underwear. On my way from the airport, I ask the driver to take me to a good charity shop, and I buy boots, socks, trousers, jumpers, sweaters, hats and scarves - usually for £30. . . On the way back to the airport, I have it all in a big bag and drop it off at another charity shop.

Movie Review

Paul Williams Is Still Alive-

A documentary of sorts about song writing icon and 70’s oddball celebrity Paul Williams. It is way less about his whole life and more about the directors fascination with him.

Tons of cool, funny old 70’s TV footage. And so many songs that he wrote. And this was made before his teaming up with Daft Punk.

If you were alive during the 70’s you should check this out.

Mastermind Room Escape

9 of us were locked in a room of a serial killer. We had 1 hour to find the clues to escape before he came back.

There were clues to figure out.

Combinations of locks to solves.

Keys to find.

And more.

I don’t want to say too much, because not knowing was a great part of it all.

Our friend Eli set it up for us all to go do. We had no idea what to expect. Would it be cheesy, scary, boring?

It was a lot of fun.

We did escape. With just a little over a minute to spare.

Well worth checking out.

Check Out This Band

Sheer Mag

Put classic rock through a punk rock distorted garage band amp. Add a girl who sounds like a distorted version of Michael Jackon from Jackson 5 days. And Sheer Mag is what you get.

Catchy as hell.
