Is it just me, or have historical epic stories taken over as the latest trend in Hollywood movie making for the past few years? More and more I see these kinds of movies flop in the box offices as they fail to tell their story.
When I bought my ticket for this Q and Not U show, it was raining. I had my hood up, and my discman blasting Kid Dynamite. Just as "Pits and Poisoned Apples" came on, I walked through the door of Spaceboy Records and right into Dan Yemin.
