Entertainment Mishmash

So let's get up to speed on some things entertainment, shall we?

*25th anniversary of Ferris Bueller's Day Off- How can it be that this movie is 25 years old already? It is still as funny as ever, and many more generations have come to love it. Ferris was one of the top 10 films of 1986, along with the likes of Top Gun, Platoon, and Aliens!
Memorable lines:
"Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?"
"Umm, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night! I guess it's pretty serious."
"Thank you Simone."
"No problem whatsoever."
*30th anniversary of Rush's masterpiece Moving Pictures- This was the album that gave Rush some mainstream radio airplay, with songs like "Tom Sawyer," "Limelight," and "YYZ." It is still the band's most popular album. They recently released the 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Moving Pictures. For about a year now Rush has been on their Time Machine Tour in which they play the album in its entirety! Rush is a band that has truly stood the test of time! Check out their drummer Neil Peart, who was just on The Late Show with David Letterman during Drum Solo Week.

*NBA Finals Game 6 tonight- The Dallas Mavericks take their 3-2 lead back to Miami to try and win their first NBA championship. Can they beat the Heat? Although many Spurs fans hate to cheer for the Mavs, I would really like to see Dirk Nowitzki finally get a ring! Good luck to them.

*Tony Awards tonight- If basketball's not your thing, maybe you can catch this award show that honors plays and musicals you may never see. But... there will be a lot of star power presenting and performing at the Tony's tonight, so it should be a good show. I want to catch Harry Potter's own Daniel Radcliffe dancing and singing on stage with the cast of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. I also hope to see U2's Bono and The Edge, who should be presenting stars from Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

Gotta go get my DVR ready. Have a great Sunday!

Update: Dallas Wins!!! Dallas Wins!!!
Don't get too excited Cowboys fans. Speaking of the Mavericks of course! The Mavs win their first NBA Championship ever! Congrats to Dirk on winning MVP!
