The Charm of Old Fashioned Fun

On Friday I went bowling with my colleagues at an old bowling centre in Leuven.
It looks like time stood still there, it is still the same as the day it opened.
And that is just fine, that's how a bowling place should be, it even smells old.
For me all the charm lies in the fact that I can pretend I am in an old village somewhere in the middle of nowhere in America. Bowling has a real Americana feel to it, in my opinion. That's why I like it, although I suck at it - big time, that is-.

Another old fashioned fun activity: Tonight my love and I had a date night at the movie theater, we went to see 'Django Unchained'. I'm not gonna write a review about the movie, because I never read movie reviews myself, but I do want to get something off my chest about the whole movie experience. What the F happened to the charm of going to the movies? No more people who serve you nachos and the famous cheese dip & jalapeƱos), they have been replaced by bags of nachos and plastic cups of cheese dip under a heat lamp. No more coca cola in a large cup with a straw, but plain supermarket bottles. And what is worse, in the old days you had the commercials before the movie started to look forward to, because mostly they were creative and you couldn't see them on tv, now we had a commercial for a local car wash. Imagine that, together with some motion picture trivia and some bad movie trailers. Easy to see why less and less people bother to go to the cinema, and prefer to stay at home where you can skip the commercials and sit in your comfy sofa with no chewing gum on the seat.
Luckily the movie itself and the company made up for it!
but what happened to the red velvet seats?
