Snow Daze

Ah, a four day weekend induced by a mere inch or two of ice on the ground. The ol' college try ain't whut it used to be, and that's just fine by yers trooly. A couple of weeks ago, we got a three and a half day weekend under similar circumstances. The snow god (his name is Bobo) is totally down with us college profs having kickass long weekends! Of course, bowling night wuz cancelled, so Bobo doesn't have all of our priorities in mind. Anyhoo, during the last ice storm, I watched some cool movies while half-assedly grading papers, and I came across an unknown jem on the new release shelf known as The Amateurs. It's got a great cast, headed by Jeff Bridges...and if you've ever wondered what his Jeffrey Lebowski character in The Big Lebowski might have been like if he'd moved to a small down and, after a string of failed enterprises, decided to make a feature length amateur porn movie with the locals...well, this is the film for you.
