Days of our Lives
Sami: Well let's see. She tried to kill my mother. She broke my step brother's heart at the altar by raping a priest who happens to be MY TWIN! How am I supposed to get over that!
Oh how I love the drama in Salem!

Fancy Movie Theater Recliner
1. They do not serve tubs of popcorn. Their large popcorn is a bag which is not nearly or at least does not seem nearly as large as the tub at the Regal. I really like eating out of a tub, period end of story . a bag will never be a tub. I mean really , if I"m going to eat out of a bag I might as well just eat off the floor. Ok i guess it wasn't period end of story because I had more to say but really not eating popcorn out of a tub really gets my goat.
2. They have those new coke machines where you can choose from 809 flavors. Unlike everyone else in the world I despise these machines. I see the benefit of having all these flavor choices but really it makes me life much much worse. First of all, I swear it always just tastes like a mix of a whole bunch of flavors because I swear it doesn't clear itself out. Then secondly, people spend hours , like literally 1.72 hours deciding on a flavor since there are so many choices. So what used to be a drink handed to you in like 2 seconds now it a 1.72 hour process of standing in line, finding your flavor and then getting a mixed flavor grossness. I really dislike these machines.
So then we get into the theater and get oru seats. Wow , theya re awesome and comfortable. They like fully recline and are large and super comfy. We took pics, so did like everyone else, everyone seemed really in love in the seats. I'm thinking they might get gross in the summer when people wet sweaty skin gets stuck to the pleather and you hear a lot of skin tearing stickiness but for now while everyone is wearing pants and sweaters it is really enjoyable. Theh people next to us even brought a blanket. T
There are far fewer seats now since they are so spacious so I recommend you order online ahead of time or call to make sure you get good seats.
OOOH wait I almost forgot the most important part. These seats make it hard to share pop and popcorn unless youa re really snuggling up. me mk and Jill usually split a popcorn and it would be almost impossible to reach from the seats on the side with someone in the middle holding it like in a normal theater. Luckily Jill thought of this and brought 2 tupperware bowls that we could split it into so we could all enjoy our popcorn. We had 2 pops and they both only have cup holders on the outside so if you are hsaring a pop you would have to reach across the other person depending on where you were sitting.
So overall I really like the new theater, super comfy and fun but there were some downsides in the refreshment area.
Oh and the movie. it was really good. it was by the people who did Love Actually and I didn't love it as much as I loved Love Actually actually but it was still good. It was about this guy and he can travel back in time but only to parts of his life and there are different rules and his dad can do it too. It had some really sad parts that you had to live over and over due to time travel which lead to a lot of crying on our part but it was enjoyable. I recommend it!

Cowboy Police Slapper
R: There's a giant black enforcer in a jockstrap who shows up in Cruising's interrogation sequence. What the hell was that?
WF: That was a real thing that happened -- constantly. Not just in cases involving crimes in the gay world. And that's the guy who did it. I forget his name. When they were interrogating a suspect -- and this is before Miranda rues and legal restrictions on cops to beat a confession out of somebody -- who they thought was guilty or wasn't talking to them, they had this big African-American cop come in in a jockstrap and a cowboy hat and whack the guy and walk out of the room. The witness would get into court and his lawyer would say, "The only reason he confessed is because they beat it out of him." The judge was often in on it, and he'd say, "Who beat it out of him?" "It was a big black guy in a jockstrap and a cowboy hat!" And the judge would say, "In a police station? You've gotta be kidding. Three years!" I would have to say that was standard police procedure, especially in the '60s.
It was really crazy!
