I didn't care for this movie much.It starts off depressing and slow and ends pretty much the same.Just as the surfers never actually surf the movie never moves... well it does move but from one depressing spot to the next depressing spot.The main character is a gay guy who has sex with a girl for money just as his mother is a woman who makes money through sex.He has no father as it could be anyone in town or out a town for that matter.He also falls in love with a guy who left town after being molested by his teacher.It a sucky story that didn't do it for me and was poorly acted as well.If you must see this film rent it don't buy.It is not a keeper.
Quite a few years ago when I was in the Army about to finish my 10 years of military service stationed at Fort Rucker Alabama I would travel often through Mississippi to Arkansas to visit Family.One time when I had received news that my father had died from a heart attack I was rushing to my Grandparents house and when going through a small town in Mississippi I came up to a rest area and dashed in to relieve myself as I had been drinking coffee non-stop.While I was in the rest room the people who lived across from the rest area came over with baseball bats and beat my windshield in with bats shattering the glass into small fragments but still holding together making it virtually impossible to see out of.It was one of the scariest moments of my life.I was sent on a wild goose chase to find a police constable or whatever they call them there and went down long dirt roads into what seemed hell to get a police report and when I finally found his house all decked out in the standard hate flags and such he told me (thinking I was some straight military person) that I had made the mistake of stopping at The Fruit Stand.To be honest I don't know for sure but I think I was more scared at the small town Mississippi cops house than inside the rest room listening to my car's windows be beat in.SMALL TOWN GAY BAR is a well done documentary movie about growing up gay in those same small towns with small minded hateful people.I highly suggest you see this film.It is a moving and insightful documentation of a few of the bars and the struggles of their survivals and demises.
We had a great trip to Minneapolis this past weekend.I did discover I am a horrible bowler.I did get my first ever pink shirt for my birthday 2 weeks ago so I got brave and wore it.The grand prize winner of the bowling contest was a good guy and friend Jay. He is holding the gold trophy and he also owns a greeting card company that produces some great cards you can check them out at his website http://www.smartalexinc.com/ you can click the link to the right --> under other cool links
Three new wobbler designs have been released to us die-hard fans.The Gamorrean Guard is a great looking Wobbler to compliment the grow Star Wars line and the first 2 of the Marvel Wobblers are also being shown to us IRON MAN and THE INCREDIBLE HULK.I think the funko artists have done a good job with all three.
