High Activity Weekend

No blogging lately. We’ve had a house guest and been busy entertaining around the Grand Strand. Here’s the whirlwind overview of what we’ve done.

We’ve eaten at Bummz; strolled around Broadway at the Beach; gone to Huntington Beach State Park; gone to Brookgreen Gardens; meandered on the boardwalk in Murrells Inlet; eaten at the Divine Fish House watching boats pull in and out of the dock; watched The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada; gone to a production of Crazy for You at Coastal Carolina; grilled out; eaten at Uno Chicago Grill; and taken in a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game at Coastal Federal Field. Whew!

Tomorrow our friend leaves but we’re also driving up to North Myrtle Beach to the House of Blues to see the Flaming Lips. All told, I’m ready for a quiet evening at home but the chance to see the Lips doesn’t happen every day so we must pursue it. Big times.

  1. How’d you like Three Burials? I almost went to see it in the theaters, and then it was perilously close to the top of my Netflix list, but now it’s buried again.

  2. CDC, I thought it was fantastic. Lately I’m big in the modern westerns and this might be the best of them. There is a lot of Bring me the Head of Alfredo Garcia in it. The only thing I didn’t like, which was similar to the problems of 21 Grams (same screenwriter) is that the time jumping of the narrative flow seemed arbitrary and didn’t add anything. Telling the same story linearly would have worked just as well or better, because the real meat is in the human and interpersonal stories, not in any storytelling trickery.

    I give it a very high recommendation.

  3. I’ve seen this movie on the Starz On Demand system, but the description did nothing for me. If it has the EGC stamp of approval then I will check it out. So far Dave has not steered me wrong yet.
