7 Indie Movies You Should See

It’s summer blockbuster time and that means Hollywood is rolling out its spectacle, big budget behemoths.  Or as we here at Idiot Ballroom like to call it, “mindless drivel”.   So, we thought it would be a nice change of pace to showcase a few movies that don’t rely on all that money to entertain… the Independent film.  We figured most cinephiles have seen Reservoir Dogs or Eraserhead or My Own Private Idaho, so here is a list of 7 indie movies you probably didn’t see but should:

2 Things Not On My Bucket List

There are a number of things I would love to accomplish before I leave this giant dirt ball. Take a trip to Ireland, buy and restore a 64 ½ Mustang, witness in person the Cardinals clinching a World Series. Those are just a few of the things I have listed on my “bucket list.”

But there are at least two things that are nowhere close to being on that list. Those being, running onto the field at a ball game and being tased, thanks, but no thanks. Yet some idiot at the Phillies-Cardinals game last night managed to do both of those things in a matter of minutes.

Many have asked if the tasering was really necessary. If he were resisting arrest outside of the ball park wouldn’t this have likely happened to him then? Chances are very good that it would have. The way I see it he was resisting and his dumbass got what he deserved. These are my thoughts, my mindless ramblings and you can get over it.

Besides, if he was a Cubs fan, would this really be an issue? I think not!!!

Who said old people were worthless?

Who would've thought that the solution to fossil fuel dependence would come from fossils... of the human variety... senior citizens that is.  Leave it to the Japanese to turn adult diapers into fuel.

We can only imagine the conversations:
"Hey, grandpa, we're running low on electricity.  How about some creamed corn for dinner?"
