The Mighty Boosh Documentary @ Cinefest

Friday, September 3rd Cinefest Film Theatre at Georgia State University will host the Atlanta premiere of Journey of the Childmen: The Mighty Boosh On Tour:

The Mighty Boosh is one of those rare comedies that began with a DIY aesthetic and transferred from radio and TV success to become a national phenomenon, catapulting its stars Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding to stadium rock star status. This film captures the roller coaster ride of their huge success, as they navigate a nation hooked on the cult of Boosh.

JOTC was filmed across the mammoth 99 date UK tour undertaken by The Boosh in the winter of 2008-2009, visiting everywhere from tiny theaters to full-blown arenas, during which time they performed to 270,000 fans. The film provides an intimate and honest portrait of life on the road for the Mighty Boosh, and is essential viewing for fans, as well as those interested in comedy and documentaries. Shot in an observational style by award winning filmmaker Oliver Ralfe, JOTC is a personal and hilarious portrait of the phenomena of the Mighty Boosh and the characters who invented it.

 Hi.  Finishing up a Bachelors at GSU starting this semester, and a little unfamiliar with things.  I look at my schedule and I have a few quandaries. What's a "1hr Breakout Recitation?"

Additionally, anyone have experienced with snagging a better class/timeslot at the end of Add/Drop?  Are there waiting lists or anything one might get on?  Or is it just a shot in the dark, hoping someone drops just as you check?

I don't have a place in town at the moment...I'm shooting to get one some time between the start of September and the start of October.  So transport/parking tips would be appreciated.

Apartment advice needed

Hi guys,

I'll be starting work on my Ph.D at GSU this fall. I dont have money to visit and find an apartemnt before I move so I am going to have to find an apt online but i dont know the city at all.

I am living on a doctoral stipend so I have VERY LITTLE MONEY. I think the max for rent i can afford is about $450 a month. my only requirements are that I have air conditioning and that the apt allows me to have my two small dogs.

Can y'all tell me the names of some apt complexes to consider?
