i don't need all that money. i don't need anything! well.....except maybe this paddle game, but that's it! oh, and maybe that lamp. just this paddle game and this lamp, and that's all i need! ...and maybe that thermos, too. just this paddle game and this lamp and this thermos, and that's all i need!
i'd buy better friends. probably pay to get a little better water pressure in the shower, too. would definitely make the upgrade from McDonalds to Burger King. might be fun to buy my own town and get to run everything--not effectively, but bureaucratically. although it still wouldn't be enough money to pay off my student loans.
my heart is sinking that people haven't yet posted an event they think is hip and exciting in the Crossroads apart from the first ever film festival that just happened. Victoria is going to lose it's young people very quickly this way.
cable tv will be dead in about 20 years. between the stuff on Hulu and Netflix and Amazon and then with movies on demand, there's not a lot of people in the younger generation who are using it.
i don't even have a television set but watch a very small handful of shows via the Interwebs. i definitely don't feel like i'm missing anything. missing a football game? still cheaper to head over to Wild Wings and have a couple sodas than pay a high monthly price for cable.
good for you on the switch. i think in a short time you won't feel like you're missing anyting at all.
i always thought a "theater" category meant live theater, and that movie theaters didn't really count. even still, why would people vote for a movie theater over Theatre Victoria or Gaslight? please everyone see more live theater!!
like many movie theaters do, it's nice that this one in Victoria shows the Met Operas, even though it's usually just me and some old couple in there. more people need to attend and get some culture. you don't know what you're missing!
awesome! exactly what Victoria needs. you see, help sponsor a unique and fun event here and all the surrounding businesses will benefit, too. and it's nice to hear that the downtown businesses stayed open longer than their usual three hours.
but we haven't yet heard the usual cry of "it's too expensive!" from the people who don't ever go downtown (or go out at all) and so therefore think it's wasted money.
maybe i just don't understand, but what i see is the City Council putting millions of dollars into tourist-based "visit Victoria" efforts in order to pump more money into this town. but at the same time, it seems like everyone who lives here takes off every weekend for SA or Austin or CC. that's a lot of money leaving town from people who otherwise would be here already.
a couple of the bars downtown are actually pretty nice, though.
