End of a great month


Dang, September has come and gone with a blink of an eye! When this month started 29 days ago, Fassinating Fassbender wasn't even on my brain. Then September 6th came and hence the inspiration for FF. On that day, Michael signed an autograph for me wishing me a Happy Birthday, which is today, and I have it framed on the wall just above my new Gateway computer system with a 22" screen monitor. I'm very lucky in a few ways, but my life is far from complete happiness.

I have been poking my head in at Gold Derby to see if there's any new information or change about an earlier release date for 'Hunger' so that it can be in competition for the upcoming awards season. There are several movies that have debuted at TIFF that have gotten a lot of critical praise, but not a whisper about Hunger and that irks me a bit. Go check it out yourself at their Oscar predictions and see for yourself the generic predictions so early in the game.

Also, I was snooping around at IMDB to find out more info about Inglorious Bastards and to my surprise, Michael's name comes in at the 8th spot on the cast list. WTH? Surely he could have been placed in top five at least. But, I guess I should just be glad he's in the movie, right?

Yeah...Michael's not too well known on this side of the pond, so I guess 8th is better than nothing. And for the Oscar, only if there is a slight chance that Channel 4 will release the movie this year. Wow, going up against Mickey Rourke should be something, though.
