the road: casting call

in case you haven't heard, cormac mccarthy's postapocalyptic masterpiece, the road, has been gobbled up by hollywood. producer nick wechsler and director john hillcoat have signed on, and the online buzz links either viggo mortenson or guy pearce to the role of the father. but who will play the son?

how about a seattlite? or even better, a greenwoodite! it's possible--the s.o. did some craig's list snooping recently and found this surprising nugget: a greenwood casting agency is "seeking Caucasian Boys, ages 7-10, with a thin build . . . to audition for a lead role opposite Viggo Mortenson . . . for the Feature Film, 'The Road' [sic, sic, sic]."

i selected this photograph because i couldn't find any photos of dark, desolate roads or emaciated father-son scavengers in my portfolio, and fire plays a very, very, very important role in the book.

me and theology

What's your theological worldview?
created with
You scored as Emergent/Postmodern

You are Emergent/Postmodern in your theology. You feel alienated from older forms of church, you don't think they connect to modern culture very well. No one knows the whole truth about God, and we have much to learn from each other, and so learning takes place in dialogue. Evangelism should take place in relationships rather than through crusades and altar-calls. People are interested in spirituality and want to ask questions, so the church should help them to do this.

art show tonight!

natalia is the graphic designer for the behavioral neurosciences group at the university hospital where i work. she spends her days creating sciencey posters, newsletters, and recruitment flyers, but her nights are filled with paintings and prints. it's been exciting to find a fellow arts advocate (close call, i almost called myself an artist there!) in an office where numbers and neurons tend to take center stage.

now onto the news--natalia is displaying her art as part of the ballard art walk tonight. her show, entitled GRAVITY WINS, features 15 or so prints. as you can see from the announcement, natalia's art is being showcased at sugartown vintage (2421 NW market st, seattle, wa, 98107) from 6pm-9pm. stop by and say hi; i think there's even free wine and hors d'oeuvres.

if you're looking to buy a condo...

check out my buddy's condo. you can click the link or use the MLS number (27191157) on a real estate site like i've never thought about buying a condo, but if you're in the market for something nice and affordable that's in easy walking distance of basketball courts, tennis courts, and a baseball field, this is a good one. the living room is nice for eating nachos and watching seahawks games (and the kitchen is nice for making the nachos).
