Bonehead Tip of The Day: Does anyone else feel it odd that the government is telling our youngsters to "Move"? We have to tell kids to go play for an hour and get some exorcise. WOW. No more "get home after the street lights come on," I suppose? You couldn't get us off our bikes and off the playing fields when we were young. Times have changed. Oh, we never rode around in helmets or with lights, for the most part, either. Being barefoot was a common thing from May though August as well.
The List: Weekend BO
1. "Just Go WIth It"
2. "Gnomeo and Juliet"
3. "The Eagle"
4. "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never"

Notes. It has been reported that January was the worst attendance at the theaters in 20 years. Well, take a look at the crap that was offered. Plus, with the bad weather and fantastic ratings for football in January, there is really no doubt it played a huge factor. I want to throw in the mere fact that some bad movies are always released now. I concentrate on the Oscar nominated movies for the most part, but have seen them already. This is the time for many
to catch up and see them. On Feb. 19 and Feb. 26, AMC will offer up all ten nominated Best Pictures so you can see them. Great idea AMC. "Never Say Never" opens and I just did. What you ask? Said never.
Trivia: It was the pope who knighted Mozart at the age of 14. When horses were the primary form of transportation pigeons did not need as many handouts as they do today. Grain and oats were everywhere. Hall and Oats would come later. Chances are if you see a polar bear covering its nose, it is for camouflage purposes. Do not, I repeat, do not, offer it a tissue. It will probablly slap you around like a salmon.
Closer: My goal is to never be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Too stressful.
