Back around New Years I went to a galaxy far, far away--actually it wasn't that far, it was just to a theater just across town to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Like many, I enjoyed it as well. If you haven't seen it yet, and you are a Star Wars fan, for sure check it out while it's still showing at the cinema as the special effects were wonderful. This time, as opposed to the last time when I went to see a cinema showing, the projectionist had the sound set at an adequate hearing level, which made it all the more enjoyable. The cinema I went to was one of the older cinemas in town rather than the newer Carmike 14. Earlier in the year I had gone to see the Mad Max: Road Fury film, and they had the sound so loud in that place, it was a miserable experience. So I'll continue to patronize this older cinema.
At any rate after the film was over, I went and got a hamburger as I was hungry, then afterwards on the way back home I turned on the radio, and fell upon a book discussion, which was probably broadcast from a repeat from earlier in the day with the PBS host, Diane Reem. She generally comes on earlier in the day here. She was speaking to some author that sounded familiar to me from the way his voice sounded, but at first I couldn't place him.
It turns out she was speaking with Stephen King who has a new book of short stories out, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams. It sounded interesting to me, and I always enjoy listening to King and hearing what he has to say. If anyone is interesting in hearing the same interview, check out the link
It was a good way to start the new year.
