So, a while back, Fred and I saw film crews out and about with lights and fancy cameras around our hometown of Norwood. They were filming what we found out later would be a movie called A Strange Brand of Happy. How cool is that? In this movie poster, the (now closed) cafe they are in front if is actually 2 blocks from our house, called the Speckled Bird Cafe. We just saw the film at the Kenwood theater last night and it was so cool to see parts of our town on the big screen. The movie had a really great story line too, and it was very unique in that it incorporated little animations throughout. I'm a designer and love to do little illustrations of my own, so of course I consider it a real treat to see the meshing of 2 creative mediums. It was really a breath of fresh air. Anywho, we really liked the film a lot.

I only cried twice, but they were good tears. :) One of those times was when Anis Mojgani performed Come Closer, a spoken peom. His words really got me in the guts...
