I'll take a couple day break from the YouTube-fest just so your cache can clear and you can safely read my blog again. The 80s, part 3, will be posted on Tuesday of next week, and I'll keep the YouTubing to once a week from there. You're welcome, Calen.
Honestly, my browser is running really slowly if I load my blog right now anyway, so I'm okay with the new policy.
First the good news - Lion in the House, about which you've seen me blog before, and I thought I'd throw a shout out to the filmmakers as they won an Emmy this past weekend for Outstanding Accomplishment in Non-Fiction Filmmaking. It wasn't a solo win as they tied with Spike Lee's crap about a Levee or something.
I got invited to the local press conference by CET (the local PBS affiliate) as they congratulated and wished the filmmakers well. Kinda cool to think that I've been even the tiniest part of that, and if you're local, you can catch a reshowing of Lion this Friday night and the next couple of Fridays. If you're really local and have a few hours free time, I'd be willing to loan the DVD out.
Second, the sad news - I heard from an employee that Madison's Market in Glendale (another favorite that I've mentioned) is going to be closing up shop. Apparently the organic and specialty food market just isn't clearing enough cash to justify their rent, so they're going to cut back to just the Findlay Market store.
So very much sadness.
If you get a chance to stop by, buy your last bit of gelato and thank 'em for being there at all.
They'll be missed.
