kakarasha35: question

Sorry for off topic, but I need to know the opinion of the majority.. I am currently working in a big company and due to the financial crisis my Head Manager told me to improve my education or I will be fired. Thus I decided to get an MBA degree. But.. I can not leave my workplace right now.. too costly for me.. that's why I decided to go in for online MBA program. Is it OK? How can they give diploma at all at the distance? Thanks for all the answers!

Anti-Racist Action

The following is an annoucement being circulated by local community groups in Greensboro, NC, as one response to an announced conference to be held by the National Socialist Movement.
"An anti-racist solidarity rally will be held at 3 pm on Saturday, August 29th. Meet at Hamburger Square, at the corner of McGee and South Elm in Greensboro. Bring your friends, bring your family, bring everyone. The more of us, the better.

This event coincides with the very probable National Socialist Movement (neo-nazis) Regional Conference in Greensboro on the same day. Also, November 3rd marks the 30 year anniversary of the Greensboro massacre. Let's let them know that Greensboro is not okay with racism and hatred. Our voices will be heard!

Stand together against racism, rally for unity! Bring your friends, bring signs, and be there at 3 PM on Saturday, August 29th. Fight hatred!"

Anti-Racist Action crews and affinity groups are being encouraged to come to town to help confront the National Socialist Movement. For more details, email NCantiracists@gmail.com and/or visit http://www.onepeoplesproject.com

thetaoofjoe2: Greensboro to 'Rock n' Bowl' with 'The Big Lebowski'


GREESBORO, NC – Get ready to laugh, bowl and rock n’ roll with “The Big Lebowski.”

On Wednesday, August 26th, the Mixed Tape Film Series and WUAG 103.1 FM will present the Big Lebowski Rock n’ Bowl, a city-spanning event that will be a celebration of bowling, White Russians and one of the most beloved comedies of all time.

The Big Lebowski Rock n’ Bowl kicks off at 7:30 p.m. with a 35mm screening of the Coen Brothers’ cult-classic “The Big Lebowski” at the Carolina Theatre on 310 South Greene Street. Immediately after the film, Lebowski fans can knock some pins and make some friends at the Brunswick Triad Lanes on 21 Oak Branch Road, where there will be unlimited bowling and a dance party featuring records spun by WUAG’s greatest DJ’s.

Released in 1998, “The Big Lebowski” follows the life of Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski, a man of simple pleasures and questionable means who finds himself in a world beyond his comprehension after an unfortunate case of mistaken identity. Jeff Bridges shines in the lead role, reacting to brilliant supporting turns by John Goodman, Julianne Moore, Steve Buscemi and a very young Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Film critics and audiences originally shunned the film upon its release, however, due to a series of midnight screenings across the country as well as DVD sales, the film has become the greatest cult success of the last decade. Rolling Stone even went so far as to call the film “the most worshipped comedy of its generation.”

Other events in the Big Lebowski Rock n’ Bowl include a costume contest for people who dress like one of the characters from the film and bowling tournaments.

Brunswick Triad Lanes will serve patrons discounted White Russians until they close at 1 a.m.

Tickets for the movie and all-you-can-bowl event are $14 and are available at any Mixed Tape Film Series event or online at www.wuag.net.

For more information, e-mail movieshowjoe@gmail.com or call (336) 662-5691.

thetaoofjoe2: The Mixed Tape Film Series presents 'Transformers: The Movie' -- in 35mm


Whether or not you care for what Michael Bay has done - and will continue to do - with the series of live action films, all fans of Transformers can agree that the original 1986 film was pretty awesome. After all, it was the first U.S. animated feature since Bambi or Charlotte's Web where a major character dies. There's actually a good chance that the film introduced many children of the 1980's to the concept that death is absolute, and can claim anyone -- including the beloved Autobot leader Optimus Prime.

So it brings me great joy to announce that the Movie Show's Mixed Tape Film Series along with Acme Comics, is hosting this rare presentation of Transformers: The Movie at the Carousel Luxury Cinemas (1305 Battleground Ave.) on Thursday, June 4 at 7:30 & 9:30 p.m.

This is the 1986 film that, surprisingly enough, was the final cinematic bow for writer, director Orson Welles as the voice of the planet devouring robot Unicron. You've also got Star Trek's Leanard Nimoy, The Breakfast Club's Judd Nelson, and Monty Python's Eric Idle.

As with all Mixed Tape screenings, there will be $1 beer, pizza, cookies, popcorn, and soda, but there's one thing we're going to be doing differently. Because of the new movie coming out, there's a high chance that Transformers will sell out. So instead of simply offering advanced tickets online, we're also letting fans duck the surcharges by heading over to Acme Comics on 2150 Lawndale Dr. where a limited number of advanced tickets will be available. Again, the number of advanced tickets is limited, so you might want to head over to Acme ASAP.

Acme will also have a table set up in the lobby filled with Transformers memorabilia, and before the film, I'll be presenting a special, hand-picked collection of video clips that should leave all Transformers fans cheering.

thetaoofjoe2: The Mixed Tape Film Series presents "Blue Velvet" in 35mm

A young man (Kyle MacLachlan) returns home from college and discovers a crucial piece of evidence to a horrible crime in an open field. But after turning the evidence over to police, the young man starts an investigation of his own, which sends him into the seedy underbelly of his seemingly peaceful suburban neighborhood.

Ranked as one of the ten best films of the last 25 years, Blue Velvet is a dark and beautiful masterpiece, and the greatest movie shot in North Carolina.

Showtimes are at 7:30 & 10 p.m. Wednesday, May 6 at the Carousel Luxury Cinemas on 1305 Battleground Ave. in Greensboro, NC

Tickets are $2 w/ college i.d. Beer is $1.

Trust me when I say that seeing this movie with a group of your most beloved friends is an experience you'll never forget.

BONUS: For those of you interested in the films we'll be playing at next year's Mixed Tape Film Series and Midnight Madness, we'll be offering an exclusive sneak preview. Plus there will be information on how you can purchase a season pass that will allow you to see all the films while saving a good chunk of money.

nibea: Room available in Greensboro starting July - $490 ALL included

I'm Beatrice, I moved to Greensboro last year to attend graduate school in psychology at UNC-G. With this post I try to help my current roommate to find two new roommates starting in July 2009. It's a great place to live - I am moving out to live with fellow grad students to make studying together and helping each other out easier and the other roommate got into App State and is thus moving to Boone. It is a great place to live and I would recommend it to anyone.

Some details: It's a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath townhome located off of Battleground Avenue (close to the Walmart). You'd have your own large room and vanity area (sink & mirror) but would share toilet/shower with another person. The room would be on the second floor of this three-story townhome. Both available rooms have double-doored closets and there is plenty of storage space upstairs in the attic. The kitchen and living room are fully furnished (nice couch, huge TV) but the rooms are unfurnished.

Your roommate would be a 25 year old female professional so other female (straight or gay) professionals or grad students are preferred. No party animals, we like to keep the house clean and quiet (of course, occasionally you can have a gathering). Washer and dryer are in the townhouse. The apartment complex takes care of yard maintenance and there is a pool.

The rent currently is $340 per room plus utilities. You'd pay no more than $490 a month including power, water, and cable/wireless. If you are interested please comment here and I will direct you to more information/pictures. Again, it would be available July 1st.

Thank you :)

dopejess: (no subject)

We are currently fostering a beautiful black kitty named Lady. She is about 6-8 months old, spayed and up to date on shots. She has beautiful green/yellow eyes and she loves attention. She is a little skittish around new people but once she gets accustomed to new people and surroundings, she really is a joy to have around. When you pet her she almost immediately starts to knead and purr. Lady would be a great pet for anyone looking for a loving, indoor kitty! Please reply or send me a message if interested. There is a small adoption fee and a contract to sign.
