saturday was dionne's birthday and we had a nice day together (which is rare nowadays, thanks to our totally incompatible work schedules). we went roller skating, then went and saw the movie "Roll Bounce" at the theater.

the movie is a coming-of-age story set in late 70s chicago and is stepped in the world of roller disco skating competitions. the film isn't winning a palm d'or anytime soon, but it was just an enjoyable movie. the storyline and acting were actually watchable, but the roller skating sequences were just BAD (in a funkalicious kind of way! the music is just great, too. i thought the movie came out as sort of a cross between "saturday night fever" and "crooklyn" by spike lee.
