No, the spacebar didn’t break on my keyboard. But yes, it’s the name of a movie I recently watched.
Griz Unit from the sports desk happens to like the TV “How I Met Your Mother,” probably more than I do. Which is of course why he went out and purchased this film written, directed and starting the CBS sitcom’s lead character.
Josh Radnor, plays Ted Mosby, aka T Mos, aka, Teddy Westside on the hilarious CBS sitcom. He also is the creative force behind this film.
In “HappyThankYouMorePlease” Radnor plays a guy facing relationship difficulties and what I would think is a felony charge in the state of New York.
But at the end of the movie I thought the characters grew and the screen play was solid. I told Radnor this on Facebook and asked for more please.
There won’t be time to get the opening act for the free entertainment at the Stutsman County Fair in the Diversions page so I figured I’d let you know about her now.
Samantha Madison and WildCard is a group from Nashville, Tenn. According to Stutsman County Fair Board president, Al Lindberg, she’s a kicking country/rock gal with pretty slick band. She has also apparently never been in this part of the country before.
Lindberg saw her at the Dakotas’ fair convention last fall, and knew he wanted to act to come to Jamestown.
Watch this video and you might agree with me that he made a good choice.
Madison and Wildcard are free entertainment with the purchase of gate admission to the Fair. Cost is $4 for adults $1 for children 7-12, and 6 and under are free.
This is also an all ages shows. There are separate spaces for families, wild and crazy teenagers, and yes adults looking to enjoy a cold beverage.
This weekâ€™s free live concert comes from Woodlands, Texas and is courtesy of Mr. John Mayer.
Iâ€™m glad to see Mayer join the free-trade music cause because heâ€™s pretty much a global superstar. I donâ€™t think he needs any more money so why not give away some groovy tunes?
The most important detail about this show is that it isnâ€™t early Mayer, none of that acoustic bubble gum garbage. This concert is from around the time of his release of â€œContinuum.â€
So one could call it more blues rock than anything else. He plays homage to Robert Johnson and Tom Petty in this show, which letâ€™s you know just how far Mayer has came since
those â€œYour Body is a Wonderlandâ€ days.
Now itâ€™s not as good as the John Mayer Trio but this is a great set.
This is the first time I heard of a concert like this but indie singer/songwriter Rocky Votolato is bringing his show to a living room in Fargo on June 20.
If you want to know how he sounds think something along the lines of Damien Rice and Conor Oberst.
Thatâ€™s right a living room. It works like this: People can visit his website at www.rockyvotolato.com and click on shows scroll down to the Fargo location and click buy.
As of 11 a.m. Wednesday morning there are 30 tickets left. Once you purchase a ticket for $20 you are sent a pdf with information on what house will be hosting the concert, parking and the like.
So bring something comfy to sit on for this all ages show.
I found a video of a similar show he played in a living room in Huntington Beach, Cali. Watch for yourself and decide if you want to attend. But make it fast because seating is extremely limited for whatâ€™s sure to be a unique and captivating show.
So who has two thumbs and had a blast at the roller derby Mixer of Mayhem this weekend? Give up…
It was this guy!
If you missed the roller derby this past Saturday at Wilson Arena you missed a good time watching a new and exciting sport.
My estimates say somewhere between 400 and 500 people showed to watch women on skates hip check and knock over other women on skates.
The pink team held on to beat the green team in what Iâ€™d call a pretty captivating bout.
And while these women may look mild mannered off the track, once those eight wheels hit the pavement they are anything but.
There were a few nasty falls along the way and I wish the one woman who seriously hurt her ankle a speedy recovery.
So women of Jamestown, get out and check this sport out. We are in need of local skaters for future bouts. And those who donâ€™t want to grind it out on the flat track, be sure to check the next bout out whenever it comes back to Jamestown or youâ€™ll be sorry you didnâ€™t.
