Beatles Music: The Musical!

I saw Across the Universe yesterday. I really don't want to waste your time or mine with movie reviews on this thing because God knows there's enough of that on the world wide web. But as my friend Leonard put perfectly in his soft spoken, British accent, "It seemed a bit contrived."

Well soft-spokenly said Leonard. Now if you will excuse me, Dr. 90210 is on.

oh whatever, i was trying to edit...anyways...sarah and i went and saw the movie friday night, and yes, contrived would be the word of the night. I think the first scene that raised my hair a bit was the "dear prudence" scene. Then of course the bono scene'(s), and just the simple fact that they seemed to have made a 2+ hour movie on something that was just a good idea in theory. but looked really cool.

Exactly. That's basically why I posted it as Beatles Music: The Musical. I can't really figure out where the story was or what the story was other than...the beatles wrote good music? I believe I already knew that or someone else alrady knew that. It was probably one of those underground films that will only appeal to like all 2,000 Beatles fans. Who listens to them anymore?

How old are you people? To not understand the concept of the movie or how each of the Beatles songs relates to the succession of the story makes me believe you're under 40. If that's the case then you're forgiven for being ignorant. If you're 40+ then you truly do not know or understand The Beatles. This movie is brilliant and the songs are perfect for the storyline. A few liberties were taken here and there, but they make the story as a whole more coheasive. Please, if you're going to attempt to review a movie, please do a little research first and provide some accurate statements and facts. Either that or go watch Speed Racer and see if that's not more to your liking.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
