Cheap-Ass Flicks

6 06 2009

As my loyal readers, you guys know that I’m pretty thrifty and frugal with my money. The same goes for watching movies. If I see a preview for a movie, and decide I want to see it, I subconsciously place it into one of three categorys.

1. “Must See” (aka within 1 or 2 weeks of open)

2. “2nd Run” (aka wait a couple months, save a few bucks)

3. “DVD or TV” (aka DVD or TV)

The 2nd-run movie theater (aka Cheap-Ass Flicks) is one of my favorite places to catch some cinema. The place is convienient for me, only a 15 minute drive. The movie theater is clean (some 2nd-run venues can be really grimy). And of course, the price is right ($2 anytime, $1.50 Tuesdays).

For me, most “bro movies” (Pineapple Express, I Love You Man, 40 Year Old Virgin) fall into “Cheap-Ass Flicks.” They look hilarious, but not worth a 10 spot.  Movies that fall into “must see” for me include most superhero movies. For DVD or TV movies, my feeling is, “eh, I’ll catch it when I catch it.”

When you go to the Cheap-Ass Flicks in your neighborhood, go with some buddies and make a night out of it. Go see the flick, and then grab some cheap, greasy food afterwards. You’ll come home, pants still heavy with money. This place might not be a place to take someone on a first date… but then again, movie dates are kinda lame.

My Brute

My Brute is a fun game. You create a a character and go and pick fights with other brutes. Fights are automated, but they’re entertaining and waste time while at work or school…

Highly Recommended.

Busy days.

Lately, my life has pretty crazy. With school, work, and squeezing in time for exercise, I’ve had barely any time to breath. I’ve still managed to spend time with family and friends, but some of the “me time” has been slipping out of reach.
 
I’ll get home, and I’m downright pooped. I’ll watch a little TV, and then I’ll either crash on the couch, or trudge to my bed. I haven’t had a day to relax in about a month now. In fact, I’m just squeezing in this blog post before work.
 
For the most part, everything is in balance, and everything has been pretty good. Pretty soon I’ll have all this crazy scheduling down, and I’ll make time for everything. From simple chores like laundry, to getting that paper done for school, and everything in between, I’ll have that schedule down like Chinatown.
