Nevermore 2017

My friend, Meg, came up from South Carolina to go to Nevermore with me.  I think she had a good time.  I was disappointed. The computer system crashed Friday so we were unable to buy the ticket package (buy 8, get 2 free).  I asked to for punch cards (their usual deal is buy 4,…

Nevermore 2015

This year, the Carolina Theater messed with me.  Last year, they had shows during the week.  So, I didn't ask for the weekend off for 2015.  But, they didn't do week day shows this year.  When I asked about it on their FaceBook page, they told me that 2014 was a one-off and it wasn't…

Nevermore 2014

Ch-ch-ch-changes!  I was tripped up this year by my job.  Last Spring, I changed to a 30/week shift that has me working 2 12-hour shifts on the weekend and one 6 hour shift on Tuesday.  I get paid for 40 hours and have enough paid leave that I can usually be off if I have…

I look forward to the Nevermore Film Festival every year.  This year it has fallen on the weekend I am changing shifts from 8hrs/day 5 days /week to 12 hour shifts on the weekend and a 6 hour evening on Wednesday.  So, instead of going on Saturday and Sunday, I have shifted my days. I don't go…

Nevermore 2011

Yesterday I saw 4 of the 5 feature length films I intended to see at Nevermore.  Today, I saw both collections of shorts and one more feature.  And it appears that they are giving an award this year and we got to vote. Rubber was hilarious.  (I gave it a 7 of 10) Black Death was surprisingly unimpressive.…

Nevermore 2010

I got the 10-pack of tickets for $60. I used 5; I have given 5 to Christopher. Chuck is totally not into critter movies, but my friend, Trey, thinks this festival is GREAT and he went with me.  We liked all 3 of the feature length films we saw.  Some of the shorts were less…

Nevermore 2008

I didn't see everything I wanted to, but I did see a good "time loop" film from Spain, a ghost story with serious shades of Reservoir Dogs and a fun collection of shorts. I got to talk to one of the actors from the second movie, briefly.    The title was 13 Hours in a Warehouse.…

Nevermore 2007

First let me say, Wild Child and I have decided that no matter where he lives when he is grown, no matter what holidays we are celebrating, the last weekend in February is the one that he has to come home for. He and I saw The Anthology of Errata on Saturday at 2.  This…
