travel travel

SO...Boston was fabulous and it didn't hurt to land a room at the John Hancock on
Hotwire for a nifty 65% off the regular rates-it was a somewhat weird little hotel
that I wouldn't have found otherwise, for sure...New York next month will hopefully
bring even more promising results, even if I don't end up at the above-pictured
Jane Hotel in one of their ship's berths.

Hello from Boston. Fenway was awesome. Game results...not so much.

winnebago CLOSURE

Caught the screening of 'Winnebago Man' at Hot Docs last night- the full house was treated
to a fairly thorough examination/investigation into one Mr. Jack Rebney, and answers quite
a few of the questions about the man. It also demonstrates the sheer scope of the original
clip's appeal.

Director Ben Steinbauer was on hand to take questions and even called up Jack on his cellphone!
It was clear the audience was full of Rebney fans, and it was a little mindblowing how wide-
spread his appeal appears to be. It was somewhat...comforting to hear that the old man's
as blunt as ever! Godspeed Jack! Keep givin' em hell!

on comments

This old-ish piece on online comments was recently brought to my attention...via a Facebook comment in my news feed.

I think there's room for moderated comments in some forms of online news media, and also blogs (including this one)-though pray tell if I actually had more than 2 readers what would my position would be, if I was subjected to ongoing ridicule from infinite anonymous trolls.
