If you're anything like me, and you've been feeling like your list of accomplishments has started looking a little sparse, and maybe you've been wondering when you're going to finally get around to leaving your mark on the world (and if 'stains' count as marks), then your day is about to get worse - the Moxie Cinema is finally opening on September 21st.
For over a year, Dan and Nicole have been struggling to open an independent cinema in their hometown of Springfield, MO. They've overcome financial and legal setbacks and worked their fingers to the bone - all of which has been excruciatingly and entertainingly documented by Dan on the Moxie Blog. Now finally, they're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
What makes all this slightly painful for me is that Dan is actually a year younger than I am. I have a year's head start on him, but nothing to show for it.
Aw, just kidding. Best of luck to Dan and Nicole. If I'm ever near Springfield, I promise to drop by and show my support.
