Bookends

A couple days ago, I was sorting through my old movie ticket stubs (I archive them all, as I'm sure you do too) and realized that back in 2010, my first and last theatrically-viewed movies were Coen brother movies: A Serious Man in January (it had opened toward the end of the previous year) and True Grit in December.

As 2013 comes to a close, I unintentionally did it again. I didn't get around to seeing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey until January this year. Today, I squeezed in one last movie at a theater, and it just so happened to be The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.


It's looking like the first movie I'll see theatrically in 2014 will be Philomena. Can anybody tell me if there's going to be a "woman searching for the child she was forced to give up for adoption 50 years ago" movie next December? (Spoiler alert: Philomena is about a woman searching for the child she was forced to give up for adoption 50 years ago. Either that, or it's about two people watching Big Momma's House in a hotel room.)

Happy new year, everyone!

Daddy's Handwriting

Here's a little Christmas cartoon written by me, just in time for the holidays. Enjoy!

Note: NOT FOR CHILDREN

I can't thank producer-director Cam Leeburg and animator Jason Oshman enough for hustling to get it done.
