Wherever There's Magic And Make-Believe And An Audience, There's Theatre

by Rainier on Oct. 4, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Yesterday was kind of a mixed bag. We went to the museum to see the Pixar exhibit, and it turned out that they only allow a limited number of people per day, and they were sold out an hour after opening. While we were there, we decided to check out the rest of the museum, since it happened to be free admission day.

We went to see The Town (bank robbery movie from/with Ben Affleck) which was quite good and very intense. We also watched No Ordinary Family, a new TV series with Michael Chiklis (of The Shield) about a family who gets superpowers. It's very reminiscent of Pixar's The Incredibles.

Then the power went out for a few hours, so it was pitch dark and quiet. It's amazing how little there is to do without electricity these days ... well, except going to bed and sleeping.
