A must see… hilarious, true, and epic. Yes, I drank half a bottle of wine before attending, so I may have laughed a little harder and louder than usual, but this movie was greatness. The story of a 90’s music fan/ high school geek who gets caught up in local drug activity is genius. The events that took place in this movie, aren’t far from reality. Growing up in West Philadelphia, being bussed off to school everyday, many times carrying a violin case did not make me blind to what was going on in my neighborhood. So the storyline of DOPE, definitely hit a few soft spots for me.
I mean… how cool is this? celeste runs a lemonade stand on the corner of her block. and guess what all the money she makes goes towards… her college fund. I am an advocate for higher education, but the way college tuition is set up, I hope my children are 12 year old entrepreneurs like celeste.
my favorite day in NYC is GAY PRIDE. the main reason, because everyone is HAPPY. homophobes know to jet off to the Hamptons or wherever they go to hide, and the city comes alive. Everyone is laughing with one another, meeting new people, walking around topless, openly being affectionate, and I love every minute of it.
