Y2K came and went, computers upgraded, the Internet replaced life as we once knew it and the whole world went digital. Now jobs are scarce, money's tight and iPhones are expensive. Dull, oppressive cubicle jobs are starting to look kind of appealing, right? Wrong! It's time to channel your inner slacker, put on some gangsta rap and take a little trip back to the days of sticking it to the Man (or at least talking about it). Forget about foreclosures for a minute and recall a simpler time when fax machines were the enemy, changing careers was an option and Jennifer Aniston had the job security to refuse to wear a little extra flair. Then grab a baseball bat and obliterate some office supplies in honor of the 10th anniversary of Mike Judge's white-collar classic, Office Space. Corporate oppression may not look so bad through recession-tinted glasses, but at the end of the day, damn, it still feels good to be a gangsta. The Texas-born film comes home for midnight screenings this Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. Call 214-764-9106 or visit landmarktheatres.com.
