Red September

My parents are in Russia on a very personal journey right now. And I decided to re-watch Hunt for Red October.
Such a good movie (even 20 years later*), great lines, great set design, impeccable score, solid acting, and a naval themed young Alec Baldwin. What's not to like?
Oh and did I mention that Mr. Baldwin just recently purchased in the hood? I hope he joins the Block Association. No really, I do. We need some backup.

* my only criticism: a few more women should have been in the movie.

It's Friday (Saturday) Night

It's definitely Friday night in the city.
I just overheard the following exchange outside my window:

"What are you F**CKING looking at?!"
"I wasn't looking at you, A**hole, I was looking over HERE!"
"F**k YOU, you f**king Douchebag!"

Kenne Valley & Irene

While everyone worried about New York City, Upstate New York was one of the places hurt by Irene. Friends who live in Keene Valley got it bad: their home and their business were damaged badly. So if you find yourself up there or are heading to Montreal and you need to stop for a snack please stop by Green Point Foods! It is a win-win situation, you will support these fine people and get some tasty treats!
You can read about the destruction at www.nytimes.com in Alissa J. Rubin's report In the Adirondacks, Storm-Battered and Cut Off.
And here are some reviews for Green Point Foods: www.yelp.com.
