Security at the Movies....

I decided to go to a flick out at the Wynsong Movie Theater tonight. I went to see "A Lot Like Love", which is a good movie, I do recommend it. But, the reason I tell you about this is, I actually had to go through security to see this movie. They had a lady with a metal detector and also a station where they went through my girlfriend's purse. Now my first thought was......."We are in Johnston, Right?" The last time I checked, Johnston wasn't exactly the ghetto of Central Iowa.
The little rent-a-cop explained that the theater only does this when they are having a special screening in the theater, so that no one can bring in a video camera. Hmmmmm..... Because you see so many illegal copies of movies being sold on the corners of the streets downtown. This isn't New York.
This is just another example of how our daily lives are effected, even at the movie theater, by a few idiots who try and break the rules.

Paul is Sold Out?!

Wow, in less than 1 hour, tickets for the Paul McCartney show at the Iowa Events center were sold out today. I had friends who tried to get online a few minutes after they were suppose to go on sell that couldn't get them. I am surprised, but happy at the response from the people of Central Iowa. I didn't think that there would be such a demand for Paul McCartney tickets. It goes to show, Des Moines is growing, and can support great live music!!!!

The New Burger King Commercial

Is it just me, or is anyone else freaked out by the "King" in the new Burger King Commercials. In the ad they show people waking up to the king's face in their window and being all happy. If I woke up to a giant plastic face with a smirk on it, I would bash it in with a bat. It reminds me of Michael Myers from Halloween.

The DM Juice?

Another new site is up and running. This time the Des Moines Register brings you DM Juice. What do I think about it? I like the fact that it is good for night life in Central Iowa. But other than that, I really don't think it gives people very much information about local places, events and links. I dare you to compare Digital Des Moines to DM Juice and all of the other local websites. Here is a list of them. See for yourself which one is the best.
