    My Trip Report

    Folks,

    How many times have you gone to the cineplex, bought a buttered corn and spent one hour forty five in the seat, only to have your experience ruined by a terrible ending?

    Good endings are hard to come by.

    One of the greatest endings in motion picture history, to me, is ‘The Shawshank Redemptions’. It’s 3:46 of excellence and is, in my humble opinion, only surpassed by John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ in 1982.



    Andy Dufresne and Ellis Boyd Redding formed a friendship inside the walls of that prison. The climax is the reunion of that friendship and epitomizes the triumph of the human spirit.

    We’ve all had to endure a lot these past seven months (If your life was/is miserable to begin with, even longer than that). I feel a lot like Morgan Freeman did right about now and the anticipation of seeing your best friend brings a warm feeling throughout my innards (my apologies for some of the absolute worst, laziest goddamn Photoshopping ever created, here).

    This trip marks eight months since my last visit. That kind of drought hasn’t happened since I was a little Wienie Boy in college back in the early - mid 90’s. Now I’m an older, not-as-wise-as-I-should-be Wiener Man, but I intend to make up for the lost time the only way I know how to…through gamble, liquor and drugs.

    10/6 - 10/10: El Co’ (Tower Premium - COMP)
    10/10 - 10/14: Vdara (Panoramic Suite - NOT COMP)

    Looking forward to whatever degeneracy eight months of abstinence (Vegas wise) has fostered.

    I can’t wait for your trip to begin!

    Shawshank is probably my favorite movie of all time. I catch it while channel surfing and it doesn’t matter what part I start on, it always draws me in.

    Those photoshop skills, tho...:evillaugh:

    That's some Photoshop wizardry. Still a shame that Forrest Gump won best pic over Shawshank.

    Since it's closed are you going to go to the Palomino parking lot and pour out some Cristal in the parking lot as an homage?
