I am finally working a job within my college campus, and it'll be working with visual media. It's my first ever work-study job, so that's pretty cool.

It is actually the second time that I got to do some work on campus - the first time was volunteering at our on-campus radio station. Basically, I screened the CD's for the explicit stuff so that the DJ's didn't have to worry about any bad language 'slips' during their broadcasts.

Just got a couple new cats to socialize before they can get adopted.

They're the brother and sister of one of the cats that our housemate adopted.
At the moment, they're on my armoire on a cat bed, but area little more relaxed than when they first arrived.


...I need to be a certified cat behaviorist...if I could get paid to do this kind of stuff, it would be great.

Game group took a break from the campaign to go see Black Panther today. Great flick! Really liked the visuals- all the various tribes, the action scenes, the costumes, and especially the effects. Great soundtrack, too. Had a good time, and then we came back and divvied up the treasure from the dragon's horde in last week's game.

My boyfriend and I tried to watch Black Panther last night, but the theaters were packed multiple shows in a row and the best one we could get was too late into the night.

So we had to schedule waaaaay ahead to Tuesday when there were plenty of open seats.

Did not have that problem here. Plenty of seats on a weekend, even with all the hype and only getting there about twenty minutes before the show. Small town theater with a very heavy "redneck" pooulation- less interest, and we had the best seats in the house, since I went in ahead and got us a row right on the middle walkway so we didn't have anyone in front of us to block the view.

Yeah, I had the opposite situation. A theater in a town well-off enough that it has recliner seats. Could not find any good seats that weren't in the very front row and had to book several days ahead to get anything. It was a little scary looking at how packed it was.

At least I got the fifth of the Amulet series on that outing...instead of the second Saga like I had intended.

Meanwhile, my two new foster cats are exploring my room. They're still a little skittish, but at least they're not hunkering under the bed.

And I don't care what my mother says...they need to be bathed instead of being wiped down once a day. They smell awful.

Assigned seating and recliners are the best thing to happen to theaters.

Oh, they absolutely are!

Especially when they're dine-in theaters. Which the one my boyfriend and I usually go to isn't...but the assigned seats and recliners are still there.

Assigned seats? F that! I will sit where I am most comfortable. What do they think it is, a grade school classroom? Or a live theater performance? That's the only place that sort of arrangement makes sense, because then the tickets and seats are numbered and tickets are priced according to how close you are to the stage. Movie theaters don't have the same vision issues- the back seats can see just as well (or better given the angle) as the front. Reclining seats are nice, I admit, but not neccessary. I'm usually too busy leaning forward so as not to miss anything to use that feature anyway. Reclining sometimes makes me too relaxed to stay fully alert for the action.

Anyway, I LOVED the rhinos, and now I want to put that in my game somewhere!!!

Well, it's not really "assigned" seating and more "reserved" seating.
Picking your seat before you even go in.

You assign yourself!

Yeah, they don't tell you where to sit, you choose your seats ahead of time. It's dope because I make sure I get the best seats in the house as soon as tickets go on sale.

Ah, ok. That makes more sense. Never been to one of those- I've heard they are more expensive though. I think I'd rather stick to my cheap local theater with its discount matinee tickets. Going to a movie is expensive enough (food) without paying for a lot of extra stuff on top of it.

It levels out to an "okay" price eventually, but I for one can't look back on the recliners now.

I find it funny how people keep finding excuses to stay old fashioned, haha. Tickets at the theater with reserved seating and recliners are $6 before noon (the ones I go to), $7 before six, and $9 after that.

I miss theater tickets being cheap, $9 is almost half of what I pay.

Excuse to stay old fashioned? Yeah, that's not a snobbish thing to say at all. How about some people can't afford to go to the big "modern" theaters where they have full restaurants and serve alcohol, just to go see a movie. A cheap local theater is just fine, thank you. Don't have a car to drive 40 miles or more to an overcrowded and traffic-clogged city and spend TWICE what I pay here for the same first run film. It's called having priorities. Budget being chief among them, if you must know.

We don't really go to that kind of theater all the time. I think recliner seats are just becoming the new norm in some places.

There's a few dine-in theaters, but of course we don't go to them all the time.

Oh, I understand. I was just pointing out that not everyone has access to that sort of thing. Our local theater has only even had 3d for a couple of years now. As for reclining seats, I've been to theaters that have them, but don't find them any more comfortable, as the way I sit during movies- usually propped against the armrest with my legs folded up (feet just hanging over the egde) doesn't even make use of the back to bother with reclining. I tend to lean forward to focus more on the screen, as I mentioned. So a reclining seat doesn't even serve much pupose for me. To each their own.

Been watching the Olympics closing today. Some interesting history there. Some of it sad, some of it very much in the spirit of what the Olympics were created for.

Well then lucky you. Suprised Jersey would be that cheap.

Checked the recliner one we've been to over here in northern DE... You could see Black Panther tomorrow for $11.25 anytime before 5pm, $13.00 after. Although if you also want that in Digital 3D it's $14.75 at a 1pm show, and 3:30pm onward will cost ya $16.50. (No weekend pre-orders listed so not sure if those cost more.)

Yeah that sounds about right for most of the big fancy ones here, too. Ours just recently went up as it is. It was 5$ when I saw Thor Ragnarok, but BP yesterday was up to 6$ for the same matinee showings. Our after 5 PM prices are 7$ or 9.50$ for 3D. I ain't spending more than 20$ for TWO tickets when I can do four here for almost the same price. It's insane what they can get away with- and don't even get me started on the snacks and drinks! (4$ for a small popcorn? That stuff comes in bulk for gods sakes!)
