Blue Demon Film Festival in Dallas, Texas

The Blue Demon Film Festival will be held May 5th & 8th at the Texas Theatre, in Oak Cliff, Dallas, Texas! I'm so jealous of those within in driving distance of Dallas! I, unfortunately, live in Washington State... It's not exactly a day trip for me, so I will miss the festivities, but I hope to hear from someone how it goes. If you don't already know, Blue Demon happens to be my favorite luchador of the Holy Trinity of lucha-libre. Meeting Blue Demon Jr would be an awesome thing, but oh well. It wasn't written in the stars that I'd be able to go to this event.

  1. Some of the unique features of buying a Dallas foreclosed home are its wide housing options, global economic centre, famous art venues like the Museum of Art and sports hub featuring major the NBA Mavericks and National Hockey League Stars. Guidelines such as looking up foreclosure listings, understanding the foreclosure process, background check and putting your finance in place are helpful in finding a good deal.
