Ep 59 - Eat, Plants, Love
At the risk of tempting Karma (The hippie chick at the deli who always gives me an extra BBQ wing because she likes the podcast), it looks like we've finally pulled out of the dive of the last couple weeks and might have come up with an alternative to waterboarding for prisoners with a choice.
December was supposed to be movie month. On December 31st, a small crowd gathered in the bomb shelter and talked about local movie theater history...eventually.
First we read a couple of emails from non-detractors. Then we casually dropped names like Serena Williams, Man J. Kim, and Lori's Diners all while Pete complained about the refreshments SK has left out over the last month.
We did talk about movie theaters like the Coronet, the Kabuki, the Geneva drive-in and the St. Francis (Located at, what is now, Lefty O'doul's). We even talked about a couple movies: It's a Wonderful Life, Life Is Beautiful, 1st Kid, Jurassic Park, Loving, Beat Street, and anything with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan (Even an OG has 2 eyes, 2 ears and a heart).
So doncha sit there slack jawed, buggy eyed;
we're here with boring stories to spare.
You got us bona fide, certified,
You got a lousy for your chare d'affaires
Update: 1:42 pm, Thursday, Jan. 12th, 2017 - Lefty O'doul's, original home of the Theatre St. Francis as discussed on this episode of the Lousy Podcast, will be closing as of February 3rd, 2017. Jon Handlery (The dullard who must write his own commercials for his flimsy hotel next door) would not offer a long-term lease. Read the article and see a short video here.
