TGIF & Billi Pod Reports On PROJECT X

Good afternoon to all of my loyal and faithful readers out there in the hinterlands and boondocks.

Let’s start off this posting with a huge TGIF for all of Billi Pod’s Worker Bee friends as they are anxiously checking their watches in anticipation of beginning their weekend.

Sorry to remind you guys and gals ... but the Winter ain’t over yet ... it was only 40º @ 7:30am this morning and it has only warmed up to 47º @ 2:00pm. So ... put away your shorts and swim suits ... sorry ...

I know there are a number of you loyal and faithful readers out there who are anxiously awaiting Billi Pod’s review of last night entertainment event, which was ... tada ...

PROJECT X, the “gross-out” movie about a loser teenager’s birthday party that spirals out of control==>B+<==what’s not to like about a movie featuring 12-year-old security guards with Tasers, naked babes, drugs, booze, a crotch-punching midget and an angry drug dealer with a flame-thrower?

Yes, it is instant junk food for the brain, but I knew that going in. The audience was very much into the show, often responding audibly to what was going on, and that wasn’t a distraction, as it usually is for me.

Bottom-line ... need a laugh==>see it. Otherwise==>stay far far away.

Billi Pod’s entertainment event for tonight is ...

8:00==>THIRDS - “A comedic drama about three sisters who inherit their mother's home. The fun begins when the sisters try to decide if they should sell, keep or choose who lives in their childhood home. When one of them begins to build a brick wall to claim her "third" of the house, it's clear a decision has to be made before the mortar dries.” (Off Broadway - $9.00 TDF ticket).

This is playing at a theatre on my block and has received generally favorable reviews and good buzz. Yes, I know that it has the underlying theme of a “dysfunctional family” but Billi Pod is going to take a chance that it will be more comedic than dramatic. He is not in a mood for too much drama.

And speaking of drama ... the local papers have begun their coverage of the future of Peyton Manning ...

“MAN TO MANN - Rex must convince Peyton his Jets aren’t a joke.” NY Post

“HAIR BRAIN - Traitor Trump: Miami’s best for Peyton.” Daily News

“One Player, 32 Teams, Breathtaking Possibilities.” NY Times

Various sources have reported that “the Peyton Pursuit might be short-lived” because Manning wants to make a decision before free-agency opens at 4:00pm on next Tuesday.

Gonna be interesting. My gut feeling is that he is gonna end up with the Miami Dolphins.

Again ... Happy Friday to everyone and I will leave you with something to think about ...

Yeah ... what’s the answer?
