Josh reviewed the Khan exhibit at the Tech Museum as he found it entertaining
I reviewed 'RED' as it was lots of fun, a marvellous movie with the actors doing a great job – and worth full price; Chris follow-on'd that he thought it was the best movie he's seen this year & Trey follow-on'd that the casting was amazing & delightful
Mo reviewed seeing 10 episodes of an old TV show called 'Veil' [with Boris Karloff] as she recommends it and it was kinda spooky – plus Chris also recommended the internet archives as he saw a 30's Russian movie there called 'Aerograd'
Julie reviewed season 4 of the Sarah Jane Adventures as dark and moody & reviewed cleaning her storage unit as there's a lot still to do there & commented that old videotapes from there – the Poldark series – that they have held up well & are still fun to watch & she went to a tech trade show and got to hold a best picture Oscar
Chris commented that he did a lot of TV watching & he reviewed watching 'The Phantom Creeps' as it was worth having Mo buy it for him & reviewed creating the pizza burger taco as a delicious greasy piece of goodness - and Dann gave Chris a copy of 'Rock & Roll Wrestling Women vs the Aztec Ape'

'Bob' reviewed the 'So you think you can Dance' auditions in Oakland as good and entertaining
Andy reviewed the Alternative Press Expo as laden with small presses and authors – all very polite – and they saw lots of folks they knew, worth full price and worth going to; Dave C follow-on'd that APE is showing more furry artists
Dave C also reviewed the Northern Calif independent Book Sellers Assoc as an intimate affair and many of its publishers went to APE instead & he reviewed 'Draculas' excerpts as written with extreme hype & 'it's such a sh*tty story' ['blood, blood, blood, blood']
[evil] Kevin reviewed the Esther Pinto at 22nd and Valencia as they found good parking & the food was quite good & he reviewed 'writers with drinks' as he had a good time & the bar was 'crack-tacular' & he reviewed a Syfy flick 'Night of the Living Dead – Rave to the Grave' as rotten to the core and not even worth cable
