Car Wash Thursday, June 7 at dusk in Atlanta's Piedmont Park for "Screen on the Green" 2007
Ever wonder how some people can work day after day in unskilled, minimum wage jobs? Sometimes it's simply a matter of attitude. Welcome to Car Wash (1976), a day in the life of a bunch of L.A. car wash employees and the characters and customers who fill their lives. It's an essential slice of the '70s, so packed full of ensemble mayhem it’s hard to believe it's scripted.
This is the actual Screen on the Green website. Here is the info on next Thursday's movie. It is supposedly a comedy classic. I submit this because when we first heard about next weeks show for some reason most of my friends and I got the image of some movie staring Snoop Dog but according to the webiste it had Richard Pryor and George Carlin.

Screen on the Green is a free event that shows classic Hollywood films in the great outdoors. In Atlanta, the films are shown at Piedmont Park in Midtown. There tends to be a good mix of films, from horror flicks, to comedies, to musicals. Vendors are on hand for light snacks and beverages, but patrons can bring their own picnics as long as they abide by park and festival rules. Low-backed chairs are allowed, but grills, umbrellas, and pets are prohibited. Movies begin at dusk, and there is usually a classic cartoon to kick things off. People usually start arriving for the best spots up front around 7:00 P.M.

This is a blast. If you are in the area I would suggest you check it out. Pack a picnic dinner....grab a few friends....you're set.
Feathers fly and teddies soar as you converge on Dundas Square for a giant urban pillow fight! Swing and whack as you evade pillow-wielding assailants. Join us for this London-style silliness: bring a soft pillow to the middle of the square at 2 PM and wait for the signal. Pillow fight!
Disclaimer: As with all things, participating in a pillow fight is risky. By bringing a pillow, you accept that despite our best efforts, you may get hurt.
This is great. Makes you think..."Why don't more places do things like this?"
Shimano Inter-8 Premium (identifiable by its red stripe) is our smoothest, most rugged and most versatile gearing. The planetary gears are cold forged and heat treated to take long term abuse, and the hub internals are designed to handle inputs that would exceed what could be exerted by most any rider. The Outback’s 8-speeds offer a gear range comparable to 20 gears on a 24-gear chain bike, including multiple climbing gears for demanding off-road performance. With the tough, aluminum enclosed shaft drive and all-internal gearing, this bike also offers 13” of ground clearance and the durability to take crashes that would otherwise cripple fully exposed chains and derailleurs. In short, this bike is ideal for anyone who wants all the pleasures of mountain biking without the hassles of greasy, maintenance-prone chains and derailleurs.
A friend sent this to me and I thought I would pass it along.

The preview for this movie was on Star Wars. It is pretty intense, including a scene where the plane flies through a skyscraper. I couldn't stop wonder if they will get flack for that scene.
I was given four tickets this afternoon so I was one of those crazy people at the midnight show. Overall I enjoyed it immensely. There were a handful of scenes that were meant to be heartwarming that end up being cheesy but it didn't take away from the experience. The best part for me was getting to witness the birth of things that many of us acknowledge as an integral part of of our childhood.
