That took longer than I expected!

The projector or film or something broke at the always-an-adventure Fall Creek Pictures, so the 7:15 showing of "Hollywoodland" started at 7:40, delaying the evening. I then went back to Beth's place to try to help her delete some files from her laptop that were really resisting being deleted, and ended up not getting home until after midnight! So much for the plan to go see the Travis Rocco Band.

"Hollywoodland" wasn't a bad movie, but it also wasn't a good one. I felt as though there wasn't nearly enough story to fill a two-hour movie, so they invented a new main character as well as a family and backstory for him. Adrian Brody did a good job portraying this fictional character amidst the more-or-less real people in the movie, but I wasn't there to see him. I was there to see Ben Affleck and Diane Lane play George Reeves and Toni Mannix, and they were quite good. Lane especially.

The movie just didn't rise to the level of feature film; I might have bought it as a one-hour A&E special looking at Reeve's semi-mysterious death. I'll probably write more about this soon.
Six Mile Creek


Yes, yes, I know everyone. Those of you who've been out in public with me know that it's impossible for me to go more than ten minutes without seeing someone I know, and there were lots of people I knew at the Ithaca Farmers Market today. I expected to see Beth, who'd said she was coming by after karate, and it was nice to see Jacqui with her. Got to meet Zac's wife, Julie... who looks a lot taller in the photos. :-)

Eva was there meeting friends, Johnny Russo and Doug Robinson were playing some fantastic jazz (I bought their latest CD), I saw Sheila helping out at the Black Diamond Farms booth, Dick Cogger was down there, I saw Stephen and his wife, spotted Mariah from a distance, and so on, and so on. Apologies if I saw you but forgot to list you here!

It was fun talking on the radio about all of the wonderful garlicky goings-on at the Tomato and Garlic Festival (you can still go tomorrow, 10-3!) and interviewing a couple of folks on the air. I left with a couple of bottles of local honey (which is very good for your immune system) and several fresh apples, and had some great food there, as well. I love the peanut lime noodles at Macro Mama's, and was pleasantly surprised to see Pat Castrenze working there. He says hi, Mikey! Also got some corn fritters.

Dropped Lauren off so she could head out on her afternoon jaunt to Seneca Lake, and then Dan and I decided to check out the Ellis Hollow Fair after returning all the gear to the radio station. The fair was nice and crowded (you still have a half hour to get out to Genung Road if you're so inclined) with fun stuff to look at. I managed, if only barely, to resist the impulse to adopt one of the SPCA dogs, and Dan was very impressed with the Varna fire department's extraction demonstration. They tore up that car pretty thoroughly! Ah, memories.

Enjoyed some of the fair BBQ chicken on my deck, and it'll be time to pack up shortly to head to this afternoon's Accord meeting. Hope you're having a good weekend, too!


This is kind of amusing... it does what must be a Google Images search for each of your LiveJournal interests, and gives you a representative picture for each. Many of them that have nothing to do with sex or nudity seem to have been hijacked somehow to offer tiny pictures of naked women. I think I've gotten rid of most of those. :-)

Some of them are hilarious just for their own sake, like the one for caffeine.

Today was a good day!

I'm getting tired, but wanted to reflect a little bit before zoning off in front of the TV or climbing in bed. Today was great for lots of reasons, and one key reason is definitely that I spent so much of it outside! The weather was perfect, not too hot or too cool, a nice breeze for most of the day, etc.

Got to spend some time at the Ithaca Farmers Market and on the radio, saw lots of friends, hit the Ellis Hollow Fair, played with some puppies, had some good food, saw folks at the Accord meeting, enjoyed catching up with Molly and meeting Matt, and even had a nice evening walk with a friend.
