What did the long weekend mean for you on the arts and entertainment front?

 

Did you catch Symphony on the Prairie's "Glorious Fourth"? Visit one of the new or long-established festivals? Get out of town for some R&R? Catch a concert at Klipsch? 

For me, the weekend included more film screenings for an upcoming column on the Indianapolis International Film Festial, participating in panel discussions and auctioneering for charity at the InConjunction science fiction/fantasy convention, chipping away at a fascinating biography of playwright Eugene O'Neill, and getting some old-time religion with "Smoke on the Mountain" at Beef & Boards.

What about you?

    Thursday, daughter #2 and hubby took me to the War Memorial with 105.7 tickets she had won. Awesome perch! Friday eve went to Centerbrook drive-in with daughter #1 and grandson and kids next door to see Despicable Me2 and Monsters University. Sat eve had a quiet time with a friend watching rented movies and pizza. Spent Sunday afternoon with daughter #1, then brought grandson home and had dinner with daughter #2 and hubby at Qdoba. Will spend Mon eve with best friend and a little white wine. Freedom is awesome! Best country in the world!
  • Festival!
    Saturday I was able to visit my hometown festival in Liberty, IN. Lunch at J's Dairy Inn, watched the parade, walked the festival area, visited Brookville Lake, dinner at the Liberty Bell Restaurant, followed by more of the festival...watched a rock band "Edge of Addiction" on the Courthouse square!
  • Lone Ranger
    In spite of the negative reviews, the Mrs and I went to see the movie, Lone Ranger on Friday. It was great. It was totally entertaining, which is why I go to movies. A little far fetched at times, but still fun. Another great Depp performance. I highly recommend. Not a foul word in it.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the problem...you will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
