An Inconvenient Showtime

You know, I quite agree that people should go and watch Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth, but unless it’s going to be shown somewhere somewhat closer… I’ll have to wait for the DVD or so.

According to the movie’s own listing the closest it’s going to get anytime soon is in Lawrence (in July), Wichita or Olathe in Kansas, and Springfield or Kansas City in Missouri, all of which are at least a 2-3 hours drive from here, a bit much for going to see a movie, no?

Arrrrrrrrr!

I’m watching Blind Fury (1989), a movie that I quite enjoy and know mostly because it has Rutger Hauer in it, a Dutch actor.

Then the character Frank Devereaux comes into the picture and I burst out laughing… hey, I know him, except 16 years older!
