Mama Mia!

Went to the movies this weekend with my niece and sister. We saw Mama Mia! and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by how good it actually was. I will admit I had some concern that it might be a little hokey (and I guess maybe some of it was), after all, it’s a musical and the music is by ABBA, but it was hysterical. Additionally, I thought that perhaps the humor would be somewhat generational, being reflective of a certain era; however, my niece is 26 and also seemed to find the humor in it … or maybe she was just laughing at my sister and me. Anyway, it’s not a very deep, thought-provoking film, but if you want some light, nonsense-induced laughter, it’s pretty good (and some of the costuming is wild). The movie has kind of been tagged as a “chick-flick” but I think guys can appreciate it too.

Cool Stuff

Live music by PowerPlay … classic rock/old time stuff (check link for play list) . My Chiropractor, Dr. Werder (aka Dr. Jay), whose office is on W. Utica near Elmwood, plays in the band … he’s a very cool guy, in a nerdy kind of way. Friday September 26 at 9:00 p.m. (early enough for some of us old timers who can’t wail until midnight for the band to start) at the River Grille, Aqua Lane, Tonawanda. Don’t know if there’s admission $.

Also, my niece just graduated from Pratt Institute in NYC this year and has started her own company, iron and fire adornments. She’s been in NYC for around 8-9 years and I think she’s moving back to Bflo soon, yeah. She’s a really cool designer and makes great yoga clothes (if you’re into that), and some other types of funky clothing, and really beautiful jewelry. You can check out some of her creations on her myspace page at:

Some of her jewelry is available locally at her friend’s shop: New Age Salon … 1667 Hertel Ave., Buffalo
