shadows flash in the light

broken bed (again) celia and i went to the screening of metropolis at the orpheum last friday. it was the digitally restored version, and this wikipedia article explains the differences from earlier releases.

we got a drink at the broadway bar before the film, and more at the golden gopher afterwards, so the list of downtown bars i’ve actually been to is now a little less meager.

despite my earlier repair job, my bed broke again this weekend. i’m not going to repair it again and give it a chance for a third strike, so i’m in the market for a new bed now. maybe i should build a bed frame using iron pipe.


I also caught the show. I was super-impressed with the whole experience. All things old are new again, eh?

it was impressive to see the film with the live accompaniment on the mighty wurlitzer. and the orpheum is a beautiful theatre, of course. but i am a little relieved that there is lost footage, and the restored version is only two hours long instead of over three.

hmm. a drink at the broadway bar, a couple at the golden gopher, and a couple afterward. yeah, big lush.

I have an IKEA bed that looks to be even cheaper than yours. I ended up taking all the slats out and replacing them with one sheet of plywood screwed to the side rails. That lends racking strength and has worked. I am older than you though, so probably not such an active 'sleeper'.

One word: steel.
