Anvil movie

So I took my wife to see Anvil, The story of Anvil this weekend at the Varsity in the U-District.

First the U-District has gotten much sketchyer at night. I haven't been there in a couple of years at night time. We ate at a Falafal joint a couple of blocks from the theater and the collection of drug dealers/users and random homeless was massive, They left us alone, but the reports of muggings recently made me wary.

The movie was great, a little slow, gave a good history of the band and a look into their lives a couple of years ago. Debbie was overcome with the bleak outlook, but I assured her fame has sort of returned for them.

Not so much overcome by the bleak outlook, cause I'm for going after whatever floats your boat, but I don't necessarily want such a close look at it!
