Even if you've practiced for hours, sometimes the only thing you can say when you meet your hero is, "Beep beep."

I'm looking for a restaurant with German food, things like wiener schnitzel and interesting sausages. A restaurant rather than a bar or beer garden, something like the now-closed Jacob Wirth. Thanks.

Hi, everybody!

This past Friday night, and this past Saturday afternoon, the Somerville Theatre, in Somerville, MA, played the 70mm film of the 1961 movie version of West Side Story, as part of this theatre's annual 70mm Film Festival. What a beautiful film it was. This was a new print of the 70mm film version of West Side Story, that had not only been re-mastered, cleaned up, re-printed, and restored to its former color and glory, but had a sound track that was punchy and in one's face, as it's supposed to be. I attended both screenings of West Side Story with friends, and we all had lots of fun!
