Fall 2006 Here I Come

Every few months I end up posting a sort of “calendar” of events/things that I am looking forward too (it seems that last fall was good, too). Eventually I do intend to write or find some sort of WordPress plugin that makes this easier and less table/post-ish, but there are just so many things on the horizon that I cannot wait… As always, let me know if you wanna join for concerts or want information on any of this stuff. (Note: I get CD release dates from Metacritic’s Upcoming Releases, I get DVD release dates from Joblo’s DVD Release Dates Schedule and Cover Art, and I get movie release dates from Entertainment Weekly‘s Coming Soon.)

  1. This looks great, Jason. I’ll have to add some of these to my own calendar. I saw that Scissor Sisters are opening for Beck here on the East coast. I’m guessing it won’t be an intimate setting, though. I just saw Little Miss Sunshine in the theater. Have you seen it?
