I'm conflicted. Living at the top of the system (R-dale, represent!) I'm more than willing to pay extra to head downtown. But I'm a lot less inclined to to pay $5 to run local errands. Maybe the time has come to initiate distance-pricing like the London Tube. It would be a logistical nightmare but a lot more fair. However, if it prevents people from riding the bus 1 stop (a personal petpeeve) the farehike may be okay. Eliminate lazy riders through prohibitive price plans!
As GM would say if he were an esteemed Awl commenter: CCCCCCCCome ON!
Not only is Letmein a bad password, but it's also unbelievably needy.
I think a lot of former second bananas have made bad movies to pay the rent but Lillard seems better suited to sitcom work than films. I wouldn't say he's extremely talented but he kind of reminds me of my last gasp of youth in the mid 90's so it's nice to see him again.
I'm not straight... but I'd think that not recognizing the fierce on-stage chemistry of Annie Lennox would be a dating deal-breaker.
Well, he'll always be jail-bait to me... Like little Jeremy Andretti!
I make a point to see 1-2 films a week. Typically, I'm one of the few audience members. I attribute this to the fact that I seek out relatively obscure movies (The Family Tree, anyone?). I tend to attend shows midweek afternoons, more often than not sitting in an empty theater. So I'm that schmuck paying $13.50 to sit by himself in the dark. Sometimes I feel I'm singlehandedly supporting indies.
To state the obvious, most music "fans" now listen to the albums on streaming services like Spotify rather than pony up the 20 bucks. I used to practically live at Tower. I haven't bought a CD since '07!
Can't wait to find out what happens when people stop being polite... and start getting civilly disobedient!
@BadUncle That reminds me of the time that I heard a Muzak version of "Welcome to the Pleasuredome" at Wanamaker's. Good God I'm old.
