Girl walk all day and night

Girl walk all day and night

I don't often find myself at a church on a Sunday night, but I headed over to St. Paul's Chapel for a screening of Girl Walk // All Day, the feel-good movie of the year. To summarise, it's the story of a people dancing through the streets of NYC for a day. You can't watch it and not dance.

Jazz in Washington Square Park

As Summer expires, we accept that there are fewer and fewer chances to wander outside and enjoy the City. With Rashan, freshly laid off from his job of nearly two years, we watched two rather bad movies, Jennifer’s Body and Surrogates. Then to the park, where a band later identified as The Loose Marbles played for a crowd of summery onlookers.

Sadly, I was partnerless, and unable to provide the folks with some swing-based entertainment.

Crabby on the Way Home

The weary New Yorker may not entirely understand, but after a week of Puerto Rico I’m ready to head home. The heat, sun, animals, spotty television and phone service, cars breaking down, and generally eccentricity of my family (and extended family) are all good for a few days, but not for extended sets.

In typical fashion, we were late out of the gate, and got sidetracked buying breakfast, refueling, picking people up, taking stops, buying hammocks, looking at crabs, and taking the long way to the airport so we could deposit Mischa and Gabe to an entrance for El Yunque.

Somehow, we made to the airport in time. There was still plenty of sitting around to be had. Star Trek played on the flight home, which was a nice surprise. Crappy headphones and monitors tried their best to ruin the experience, but alas, I enjoyed the movie. That’s about the best part of the day.

It’s good to be back. I suppose I could have gotten a better tan.

Reality Bites, especially in Williamsburg

An another move that could certainly be categorised as “good clean fun”, Bonetti and I stepped out to McCarren Park in Williamsburg for an outdoor viewing of the modern-day classic, Reality Bites, which is celebrating its 15 years! Oddly, most of the themes are universal, although the clothing is fast becoming outdated.

Overall, this was a good time. The hipsters were out in droves, but managed to behave themselves. The only complaint I can muster is that we were pitched on the concrete kickball field, and not any sort of grass surface. Not the most picnicky situation, after all.

Oh, and my favourite line from the movie is definitely “I was really going to be somebody by the time I was 23.”

I don’t look bad in Laura’s glasses, do I?
