If he gets up, we'll all get up
After watching a movie for the first time since the first Bush administration, I realize that I need more cinematography in my life. So do you, basement dweller. Listen up and you just might learn something:
Got shadowy conspiracy?: "The Adjustment Bureau" is a new movie based off the writings of sci-fi legend Philip K. Dick, a known drug fiend whose books have inspired movie makers for years. Go see it at the newly improved Carmike, 1683 Whittlesey Road. Get show times here.
Mindblender: It's been a while since we've graced the halls of Spicoli's, 5762 Milgen Road. Head over there with $5 in hand around 9 p.m. Saturday to see this keen cover band. It'll be anarchy.
Columbus Cottonmouths: Alternatively, you could see some guys with real tiger blood at the Columbus Civic Center at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Our beloved Cottonmouths take on the despised Pensacola Iceflyers. Bring about $20 for tickets and drinks.
Fortunately, the Springer Opera House is still presenting "High School Musical." Unfortunately, you still have to bring your own Zac Efron. Sigh. Such is life. Try these weekend picks:
RiverBlast at Port Columbus: The living history event is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, at Port Columbus, 1002 Victory Drive.
