For me, the weekend included stops at the new gallery at the Stutz Building, a visit to the art spaces at the Murphy Art Center in Fountain Square, and finally exposing my two youngest kids to the movie “Hoosiers” — which made me wonder what Gene Hackman has been up to lately.

He’s been lying pretty low since “Welcome to Mooseport” in 2004. (For great, lesser-known Hackman performances, check out 1985’s “Twice in a Lifetime” and 1983’s “Under Fire.”)

A review of at least one of the art shows will be in my upcoming column in the print edition of IBJ.

So what did you do this weekend? Get to the final days of “My Fair Lady” at Clowes? Experience First Friday? Catch “Thoroughly Modern Millie” or “The Laramie Project” or Larry the Cable Guy?

Speak up. Share.

  • We saw The Bank Job yesterday - good movie but very violent. We were expecting a fast-paced,somewhat light-hearted caper movie and got something much more intense. The movie's last third is especially violent and somewhat disturbing, but the writing is excellent.

    For English history buffs, the film was based on the true story of the Baker Street robbery in London.
  • I finally saw Juno yesterday. While I liked it, I didn't think it quite lived up to all the hype. It felt like it was trying too hard to be hip/cool/weird. I'm not saying it was bad, just not as good as I believed it would be. I'm finding that about most movies that are hyped up. There are so few that actually live up to it.
  • I saw and enjoyed Jane Eyre at Footlite and Throughly Modern Millie at Civic. I blogged about one already and will blog about the other one soon.

    I also read HOME SCHOOL, by Charles Webb (2007). This is the long-awaited sequel to THE GRADUATE, which I have not read, but I sort of remember the movie. This is a fast, funny, frustrating read: oh, these crazy, crazy people!

    I also started reading ONE HELLUVA RIDE: HOW NASCAR SWEPT THE NATION, by Liz Clarke (2008). I am probably more interested in reading about what it is like to be a woman sportswriter, but I think the racing info itself will be interesting, too.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
