For me, most of the weekend was spent serving as toastmaster at the science fiction/fantasy convention InConjunction at the eastside Marriott.

The theme this time was "The End of the World" and one of the events involved bracketing down 32 favorite end-of-the-world/dystopia movies to a final match-up. Care to guess what the crowd picked as the best?

And while you are pondering that, let me know what you did over the weekend while I was sequestereda at the Marriott.

Your thoughts?

  • "It's People!"
    For a great dystopian flick, it's hard to beat "Soylent Green." For a complete 180: This weekend I saw "Moonlight Kingdom," and it's now my favorite movie of the year.
  • RENT
    I took in the Footlite production of RENT this weekend. Originally had not intended to see the production, but we needed something to do inside and out of the heat. It was the perfect thing to do. This production is so well done, one would find it hard to believe that it is community theater. The cast is great, the staging & design outstanding and the theater at Footlite gives this production the off-broadway feel that it needs to connect with the audience. Jonathon Larson would be proud. $20 well spent!
