This afternoon was lovely... the rain cleared up, and I went out to meet lorenzosf and falanx to see Eating Out at the Castro Theater. (I hadn't seen a movie at the Castro since they re-did the seating, and my ass was comfortably surprised.)

The movie was one of the funniest things I've seen in ages. Really well written, though pushing the envelope of credibility in the dialog. I mean, really people don't speak so wittily in daily banter, except in msminpdx's books. But it was so fun I didn't mind the over-the-top dialog at all - the story was good, the acting was engaging, and the really hot boys didn't hurt nothing either. There was this one excruciatingly hot scene in the middle that was both a huge mind-fuck and seriously arousing. I bet that scene was the germ of the idea for the movie. I'm already looking forward to getting the DVD when it comes out - this movie is a keeper.

Afterwards I did a bit of shopping around the 'hood, and ran into soooo many people I know. It was like old home week, I couldn't go half a block without stopping to talk to someone. I even ran into a couple of my deaf friends and found out I haven't completely forgotten my ASL.

Now it's pasta time!

I'm looking forward to the new seating as is my keister. I have me a lengthy movie that I'm going to be seeing when I'm in town.

Im happy that you liked the movie, couple of friends of mine what live in the Castro went there as well last night. I'm looking forward to thier review.

I'll keep you updated on the video release. TLA is handling the releasing and they are a Philly based company.

I organized an outing with friends to see this yesterday as well. We were at the 5:00 show. Must have just missed you.

I was totally torn by this movie. I thought the acting was kinda "meh" and much of it was a bit strained/contrived... but at the same time the zippy one-liners were hilarious and the BOYS WERE SO HOT!

That scene you mention was the prime example of how torn I was. I thought it dragged on WAY too long (although I understand to some degree why it couldn't have been shortened), but throughout the entire scene I'm saying to myself, "This is SO interminably long ... but SO HOT... but SO long... but SO HOT... ARGH! I'm so coflicted!"

But then I was rewarded with gratuitous full frontal nudity. So it was all good.
