Inherent Vice A Fun Movie

We saw Inherent Vice yesterday at the world famous Oriental Theater. It's a solid 2 1/2 hours so if you have a weak attention span or a small bladder you might want to pass on seeing this at a theater. It has a lot of characters in the movie and it's hard to keep things straight at times. But it's an interesting plot and the cast is superb. Especially Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon and Katherine Waterston. It really is an excellent reprisal of Southern California in the seventies and it makes me want to go out and buy the book.

We followed the matinee with drinks at Two Bucks and Rascals. Then dinner at Hooligan's. Friday night's dinner at Tess was excellent as usual.

An oil pipeline next to the Yellowstone River leaked 40,000 gallons of oil into the river. Locals were without drinking water for 5 days. There's hardly been any media coverage of this spill with the Keystone Pipeline nearing a vote. Why do they always build these things near water?

The few inches of snow we were supposed to get overnight turned into a very light dusting. We're back to mid twenties with some big winds. Yesterday was 41 degrees. It seemed like everybody was out yesterday thinking spring was around the corner. I think that corner might be a couple months long!
