I've been thinking about getting moviepass but I would probably need to get a pass for my wife, too, and then it starts getting into "do we have a babysitter lined up?"  My friends and my parents use it and they are happy with it.

Also, I don't have a smart phone, and isn't that a requirement?
Yes.  A smart phone is (essentially) a requirement.

If you get Moviepass, don't get it for your wife/family.  They'll give you free memberships to hand out for a while.

However, their customer service is useless.  They screwed up something for me and getting it fixed is a horrible joke.  Chat sessions with 30 minutes between replies from their customer service team - only to be told they need to escalate it, but escalating is impossible (huh?).  They offered free codes for IHeart Radio as part of a promotion and it looks like their codes are all invalid, but they won't admit it. 

If you get the service, use it a few times quickly to get your value out of it as I would not be surprised to see them go belly up at any time.  From what I've seen of their business plan, they collected $7.99 from me and have already paid out nearly $140.   

What can you tell me about gaming and fun in Charlotte, NC?

Books.

I do have an iPad that my parents gave me for Christmas, that I didn't want, because they thought I should have one.  It only works on home Wi Fi, though, not on a data plan or whatever you call cellular connectivity. 

I don't want a smart phone because I don't want to end up like many of my family, staring at it all the time in public instead of interacting or paying attention to my child.

"The Lobster".

This was a bad movie. No one should watch it. Why it was critically feted is beyond me.

I got a smart phone for the first time only a couple of weeks ago.  The new house doesn't have copper (grrr) and Verizon wanted too much money for a phone so my sister MADE me get a smart phone.  I got a super cheap one.  It's too big for my hand.  I don't know where I left it.

Watched Meru for the second or third time tonight. Great documentary about three guys trying to do a first ascent of a little known but very technically difficult peak in the Himalayas.. If you are interested at all in big mountain climbing (and for some reason I am weirdly obsessed with this topic despite the fact that I have a hard time climbing a large flight of stairs) it is really good. Great story and beautiful film.
