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. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
