Inwood showed Pink Floyd's The Wall tonight...
It's been a few months since I've seen it, and it was even better in a theatre. Definitely one of my favorite movies, definitely way ahead of it's time, and definitely one of the most confusing movies I've ever seen. Each time I watch it I understand more though (or maybe I'm just less confused). Anyone else really really like this movie?
The Inwood Theatre itself was pretty cool. Apparently they do these midnight showings of random films every friday night, saw it in the paper this morning and decided to go.
And at the Dallas Art Festival today, saw a great band play. They're called 440 Alliance, and basically what it is is Cello rock. They played a lot of covers (The Walrus, Stairway, Black Hole Sun, Mario Bros. theme song, and the Immigrant song to name a few), but had some really cool original. The band itself consisted of 4 cello players and a drummer/pianist/general instrument guy. One of the celloists also did the dj turntables (nifty) and another played piano on The Walrus. One of the guys (lead) actually had his cello plugged in through a Line 6 pod, and he got some insane tones out of it, and you can hardly tell it's not a guitar on the CD. Definitely reccomend you listen to these guys.
