Oops...

So turns out I haven't posted anything in a week. I would have you believe that's because I've been too busy doing awesome things and haven't had time to write. That's partially true, I suppose, but not really.

However, tonight I'm going to this place:to see this movie.
Of which one of the main contributors is Michael Pollan, who also wrote:
Which is an amazing book that I love. I keep meaning to write a review about it, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll be attending with Miss Nemesis (sister and fellow food snob), GH (who's probably getting dragged more than anything else, poor guy), and Aubrey (who is my date, I'm hoping this doesn't scare her away).

Anyway, for those who dont know anything about Michael Pollan, a great place to start would be an episode of Fresh Air which was given in October 2008 when his book, In Defense of Food, had just come out. I take this moment to say that I LOVE Fresh Air and Terry Gross. It would be the most-awesome-thing-ever to be interviewed by her. It's definitely one of my goals in life to meet her. Anyway, he was on her show once and I'd consider the interview a very good place to start if you want to start your journey as a more-aware food consumer.

Interview (podcast or whatever you want) is here.


P.S. The theatre we're going to used to look like this before it got demolished and redone. How sweet is this thing!? I wish they hadn't changed it.

Yep. My little brother is coming to see Food, Inc. with me. Because he is the coolest EVER.

You people are losers. I told you about it and you didn't even invite me!

I like old theatres as well. You should go to Bucca di Beppo for dinner.

Aubrey said...

Not scared... yet. We'll see how the driving part goes and then I'll let you know.

Jen - Last time I talked to you it sounded like you had other plans. Maybe I'll sneak in a video camera for you (And by maybe I mean not).

Aubrey - Yeah I wont lie, I'm much more preoccupied with the transportation than anything else.

So, you saw the movie. What's the verdict? I look forward to seeing it sometime, but don't know when that will happen yet.
