Box Office Special - A Fortuitous "Friday"

With that glorious work respite President's Day now in our rear-view mirrors, it's time to assess the damage done by Jason Voorhees at the box office. The bottom line is pretty impressive: $40.7 million from Friday to Sunday, and an extra $4.5 mil for the holiday, for a total of $45.2 million over the four-day weekend. "Friday" also picked up an additional $10 million overseas in this first weekend.

Soilwork - Concert Review

Soilwork, maybe the best metal band that nobody listens to, was back stateside, and was ninety minutes from my house. I had to be there. So I bought my ticket weeks in advance, circled the date on the calendar, and waited. Skipping out of work about five minutes early last night, I hopped in my car and started to drive, anticipating the show to come.
