Try, Try Beca

I often have a nagging feeling there's something I'm supposed to be doing. Work, lots of work. Besides that...

Oh right, it's now past April 12 and Tribeca Film Festival ticket packages are available. Since there's no all-access daytimer pass anymore, will the discount packages lock you in to specific movies?

I went to the site, and yes, you have to choose the exact times. Oh well, I'll probably do it but this will take a lot of scheduling work. I hate to commit myself, but the only completely unlimited pass is beyond my budget. I think. I'll do some calculation to see if it could possibly be worth it.

To complicate matters, they have daytime, evening, competition, documentary (darn, don't see "IOUSA" on the schedule) and foreign packages (the sports film package probably won't be a factor - though I did enjoy the tennis and football docs last year). I'll make a list of possible movies and go from there.

But first, jobs are due early in the week, and I also need to keep at-home grading moving. And I already have next week's NYTs to work on (Will's away).

Oh, speaking of film, I finished "Easy Riders Raging Bulls: How the Sex-Drugs-And Rock 'N Roll Generation Saved Hollywood" by Peter Biskind. There sure were a lot of drugs among this generation. And sex. Not so much rock 'n roll. I tend to be judgmental about debauchery and what I perceive as "evil Hollywood," but have to admit some great movies came out of this group. Interesting read.
