Subject: 6th Floor Blog Goes to the Movies: Taking Woodstock
Please update any links and such to www.ceetar.com/6thfloor. Sometime this week I'll be switching everything to there and updating the blog at that url and via wordpress. This is also the perfect time to contact us about exchanging links or site suggestions or whatever.
Sara and Frank stroll into the 6th floor Wednesday night and Ann looks up from her book.
“Where have you guys been?”
“I got these two free tickets to see a pre-release screening of a movie. Sounded cool, so I took Frank.”
“Aww, a date. How cute.”
“He was just the only one around when I got home today to go with me.”
“The benefits of not having a 'real' job!”
“What was the movie?”
“Taking Woodstock, directed by Ang Lee.”
“It was surprisingly good. Based on the autobiography of Elliot Tiber.”
“His parents owned a failing motel upstate, and he helped get the Woodstock people to come play there.”
“There was plenty of raving nudity and drug use too. The whole movie was like a 'free love' rave.”
“Seems to be how I'd think of Woodstock.”
“I was surprised how much I liked it actually. Woodstock wasn't really my scene. And he never even made it to the stage!”
“That amused me too. And how the Turnpike was backed up for miles that they had to close it. You know they're having a Woodstock 2009 right?”
“It can't be the same. You can't recapture that peaceful mania.”
“There would be too much security, too much worry, too many restrictions.”
“The police would be there in force, arresting thousands of people. No way people would be skinny dipping, doing drugs, and having sex all over the place these days.”
“No way. Like I said, no way you can recapture that. It's pure nostalgia.”
