Bowling for ‘Less than Ten’ Dollars
Mad shouts out! We’re pleased as punch to know that some old Charleston friends are in the heeeeouse.
In other, way more mundane news, while Liz was attending school this week I got a chance to tutor myself on some very basic PHP and MySQL, a feat that was impossible to do on a Mac in 1999, the year that this article was originally written. Oh, how the times, they are a changin’.
Other than that, I was able to alphabetize our CD collection while watching the new Kingpin DVD I recently purchased at Wal-o-in-Your-Own-Personal-Hell-o-Mart for $9.95. Not a bad deal. For those who want to know what’s in the bonus material without spending the measly ten, all that is added is a trailer and a section of the brothers Farrelly making general production-like comments through the entire movie replayed. Two things were learned. First, everything Bill Murray said and did in the movie that was really, really funny, he came up with on his own. Total ad lib. Second, aside from the casting of the four main characters, everybody—and I mean everybody—was put into the movie by virtue of simply being a friend, or wife, or a friend’s wife, or vice versa. I need to get movie director friends.
