Fourth of July Marathons

Wondering what you’re going to do this Fourth of July while you’re waiting for it to get dark enough for the fireworks shows, or while you’re sitting in the emergency room behind seventy-five drunk guys who blew their fingers off thinking they could aim the bottle rocket at the neighbor’s cat with more precision if they just held the glass coke bottle?

We here at Fat Guys have the answer: Why not try a marathon?  Many communities have patriotic-themed run/walks.  Ellisville, the home of Fat Guys North (at least for a few more weeks) has one starting at 7:30 a.m.  But, since we’re fat guys, that’s too way too early, and way too much work.  So we’ll opt for another hallowed tradition:  The Holiday tv marathon.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your perspective), with the hundreds of television channels available to the modern fat guy, there is a plethora of choices, beginning today and continuing all weekend.  Also fortunately, since we’d much rather let someone else do the heavy lifting, the great site TV Tango has put together a list of 428 marathons coming to you over the next five days.  Check it out at http://www.tvtango.com/news/detail/id/527

Best Picture Marathon

This is the first of a number of posts of things that I’ve either just found out or have been meaning to post for a while. Evidently, meaning to post something isn’t the same as actually posting it. Who knew?

Anyway, this Saturday, February 23, starting at 11 a.m., AMC Theaters are presenting their second annual Best Picture Marathon. $30 gets you a collectible pass which gets you in to see all 5 Best Picture nominees and a large popcorn, which can be refilled throughout the day. The nominees, in the order that they’ll be shown, are Michael Clayton, There Will Be Blood, Atonement, Juno, and No Country for Old Men. The pass let you come and go throughout the day, so if you’ve seen (for example) Atonement but no the rest, you can leave for that couple hours and come back. It’s quite a deal.

The boys and I will be at the Chesterfield Mall theater. For more information (actually, not much more information), showtimes, and a theater near you, check out http://www.amctheatres.com/promos/showcase/.
