Michael K. Williams & me

Today I met and chatted briefly with actor Michael K. Williams (IMDB listing) at a broadcast of the XM satellite radio's "Opie & Anthony Show".

Williams is an amazingly talented actor, probably known best for his intense portrayal of the gangster "Omar" on HBO's gritty and ridiculously underrated series "The Wire". He's also been in recent movies such as "Gone Baby Gone" and the new Spike Lee joint "Miracle at St. Anna".

We spoke briefly, and he was genuinely pleased that I complimented him on a very funny line he tossed out in a room full of comic heavyweights. We shook hands, and a guy in the audience took the photo.

The camera was messed up because it's so old, and the image had a weird blue tint covering it, so I converted it to B&W and lightened it up a bit, which is why the photo is so grainy. But it was really a great pleasure to meet such a gifted and intense actor.

My documentary: The Air Line Rail Trail

It's getting to be that time of year again, when the fall foliage will begin turning, and I'm going to make another trip to bike the Air Line Rail Trail up in mid- to north-eastern Connecticut. I'll probably bring my camera again and make an updated version of this movie.

In the meantime, here's a higher-resolution version of the 2005 documentary that Joyce and I created. Enjoy!

I can hardly wait!

I love Kevin Smith movies, even the horrible ones. Yes, "Jersey Girl" too! So I can't wait for October 31st to see "Zack & Miri Make a Porno"!

Bat Attack

This video is from about a month ago. So far, we haven't had any more attacks.
