I too am critical of the Intiman but the "funny drag show" you're talking about isn't a "funny drag show". It's called Stu for Silverton and it's a new musical about Stu Rasmussen the first openly transgender mayor who became mayor of rural Silverton, OR. It's a fascinating story and I'm actually quite excited to see the musical.

I felt like the moment leading up to killing Zod and the release afterwards was very well done and it made the movie for me. I thought the catharsis was beatiful. I really, really enjoyed Man of Steel.
Henry Cavill, to me, emoted a story being told in those few seconds leading up to killing Zod. He didn't want to do it but he had no choice. He was fighting against everything about himself just to kill Zod because not to meant more people would die. And when it was over he mourned it, viscerally.
I defintely see your take but I like the complications of a Superman being forced to do something every fiber in his being is preventing him from doing.

Do you have any idea what you're talking about? Here's a round-up of the theaters on Capitol Hill:
New City Theater
With the 12 Ave Arts Center opening Captiol Hill will also be getting:
New Century Theater
Here's hoping Theater Schmeater can find a place on Capitol Hill because that's where they've been for 20+ years and it's an area ripe with theater going audiences.

Like many of Radiohead's albums I think Kid A takes a few listens to in order to fully appreciate the album. There is always so many layers and so much going on that the first few times through is always a little disorienting. Kid A has been one of my favorite and most played albums since it came over over 10 years ago and I still find new things in the songs.

I'm a huge football fan and I don't know anything about some magical "Hallelujah" Tim Tebow pass.
Dan is trying to say "Hail Mary". The context fits. A Hail Mary pass is a desperation heave into the end zone to try to win the game as the final seconds of the clock run out.
