Calendar Features

We don’t choose our careers so much as our careers choose us. For the talented few, it’s a breezy process of counting your gifts and playing to those strengths. For most, though, it’s being turned away from enough jobs at which you suck miserably. For Otto Maddox (Emilio Estevez) in the 1982 sci-fi satire comedy caper Repo Man, it’s mostly the latter. Maddox isn’t good at much of anything, so he winds up repossessing cars for the Helping Hand Acceptance Corporation — Repo Man’s sense of humor burns like acid. But Maddox comes close to meeting his match when a government scientist contracts him to recover a ’64 Chevy Malibu that may or may not be an intergalactic weapon of mass destruction. “This is the kind of movie that baffles Hollywood,” Roger Ebert said, “because it isn’t made from any known formula and doesn’t follow the rules.” Which is reason enough to catch the free screening Thursday at the Wildish Theater.

Part of the SpringFilm series, Repo Man begins 6:30pm Thursday, Sept. 3, at the Wildish Theater, 630 Main St., Springfield; FREE.

When alien archaeologists of the distant future finally land in the Northwest and begin unearthing the mossy ruins of ancient Eugene, they will wonder what crackpot primitive religion compelled the people to so unquestioningly worship a pantheon of belligerent child-gods who donned green and gold armor in order to ram into each other over and over again. They will wonder, as they excavate obelisks, stadiums and educational facilities erected around this green-god worship, why the ancients offered such fealty to deities that gave not a single shit about them, and why they sacrificed the final faculties of their culture — health, education, fiscal responsibility, the well-being of their polity — to celebrating senseless games of grab-ass. Many centuries after Saturday's Ducks game, the alien anthropologists may conclude, with bemused shakes of their alien heads, that Eugene’s predominant form of worship was little more than a popular delusion driven by the madness of crowds.

The Ducks do battle with the Eastern Washington Eagles 5pm Saturday, Sept. 5, at Autzen Stadium: $44.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it! Not following these guidelines greatly decreases the likelihood of your event making it into our calendar.
