WHERE IS YOUR REVIEW OF NEW MOON?!? you know, don't bother, unless you give it five stars. (or do you do four stars max?)

Top 10 Overlooked Movies of the Last Five Years

Couldn't agree more with Speed Racer. My wife and I are pining for a sequel. The directors haven't ruled it out, but it appears unlikely since the movie barely earned back its budget.

Also, it didn't qualify for this list because it's from 1997, but is Gattaca an overlooked movie? Cause it is one of my top five.

Why the Girl Talk show made me feel old

I felt the same way at the free Ben Kweller show on the Hill last year. That was another confusing show not really publicized to the general public. I thought it might have been at the end of the freshmen orientation pep rally in Memorial Stadium, but then they said it was on the Hill, so I hightailed it out of there. I ran into Coach Self in the parking lot and got a chance to thank him personally for people peeing in my back yard after the national championship.

SOLD OUT! Girl Talk -- 10/01/09 at Abe & Jake's Landing

Thanks, Phil!

Checking out their website, Abe&Jake's looks like a very unique place. So I'm a little saddened that they are unable to book shows on a more consistent basis.

I can now understand the confusion, as it is a KU Union event, but I am still perplexed with the event being held off campus, as I don't think that has been done before. (Although, KU really doesn't have a place to host Girl Talk on campus, do they?)

Since GT is now off the radar, I looked up Grizzly Bear, who I heard was playing in the area, only to find out they are playing in Columbia instead of KC/Lawrence. They are not following standard protocol either!

SOLD OUT! Girl Talk -- 10/01/09 at Abe & Jake's Landing

I've only got a few complaints about this event.
1. I've never been to this place to see a show. I thought I was pretty well versed in Lawrence venues. I could only assume that this is some small bar.
2. This event was not listed on Girl Talk's myspace or official website, so I was given no real indication that Gregg Gillis would actually be there. For all I knew, the venue was just going to play the latest Girl Talk album.
3. SOLD OUT!?! I guess that validates that Gregg Gillis will be live and in person. But how was I supposed to know tickets were on sale?

Fine. I'll stay in tonight and save up money to buy music from bands and venues that know how to promote shows.

Name that bar: Learn how some of Lawrence’s pubs got their monikers

The owner of the Replay and Jackpot is a big pinball nerd, hence their names.
