Yes, I know, have yet to post about my most-excellent experience, but it's been a most-sucky-busy week, and so here's all I got. But it's good shit!
1. So cool to read that a feature film about the life of San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk is in production now, with Sean Penn as Harvey. I've always found Harvey (and Mayor Moscone) inspirational, and it'll be a delight to see San Francisco taken back to the 70s, though too bad the filming will finish before I get there in July. Just one thing: pardon the terrible pun, but Penn's going to have to stretch for this role. I've always thought of him as so tight and self-contained, while Harvey was big and open and gangly:
P.S. Twinkies, my ass.
2. I'm ther-illed that Amanda Hill will soon have a new book out, the sequel to Love Like That. Not only is she a super-cool chica who understands the value of ice skating and beer (not at the same time...although...there's a thought....) but she can fucking write! Can't wait to read more about Dalton and Roman.
3. How excellent is Breaking Bad? Seriously. Seriously. I thought Bryan Cranston was funny on Malcolm In The Middle, realized how fast he was when he won Thank God You're Here, but he's totally breaking my heart as a terminally ill everyman chem teacher turned crystal meth maker. What he's doing is illegal and deadly and, you know, wrong, but .... that poor, droopy moustache, those sad tighty whities...
