Get The Old Band Back Together.
It's been said, there's no better way to start off one's week than by watching a viral video of a horse farting.
We, for one, have never really agreed with that sentiment. As it turns out, we were, more or less, right. And to prove it, we've put together a list of four better ways to spend a Monday than watching a horse fart.
Oral Fixation: Slippery Slope at Wyly Theatre
For this month's edition of Dallas' favorite storytelling series, folks will dish on times in their lives when everything slipped out of their control, from a car crash that left one storyteller paralyzed from the chest down to a five-figure credit card debt another performer was barely able to escape from. As always, promises Oral Fixation director Nicole Stewart, the details are juicy.
Funimation at the Movies: The Miracle of Endymion at Alamo Drafthouse
Once a month, this Flower Mound-based anime powerhouse hosts free screenings at nearby Alamo Drafthouse. Tonight, they'll screen the locally-dubbed English versions of A Certain Magical Index The Movie: The Miracle of Endymion.
WWE RAW at American Airlines Center
Oh, you didn't know? In spite of a recent domestic violence arrest, Magic Mike star Kevin Nash will, in fact, be making an appearance at this, the first big RAW of the 2015. He'll join the likes of the barely there Scott Hall and Hollywood Hogan in an NWO reunion. It's Hogan's first Dallas appearance in eight years. Meanwhile Shawn Michaels, Badass Billy Gunn and X-Pac will be on hand to get the old DX gang back together as well. But wait, there's more, Ric Flair, Jimmy Hart and Ron Simmons are just a few other legendary names said to be on hand for tonight's reunion special. As for the actual action inside the ring, tonight's main event will be a 30-man lumberjack match intended to prime the pump for next Sunday's Royal Rumble. Your ass better call somebody.
The Walls Are Rising at Sixth Floor Museum
In 1967, the Greater Dallas Planning Council and the Dallas chapter of the American Institute of Architects put together a series of color slides intended as a suggestion for improvements like building a DART-like transportation system (which the film says will be urgently needed by 1980), as it is a warning about what the city's future might look like if it had continued its then-current trajectory. After screening it for civic groups that year, though, it hasn't been seen since, and for awhile there was thought to be lost. Well, the AIA has found the film, and even better, they're screening it tonight for free.
