A couple of news items:

1) I'm going to Seattle next weekend to see Franz Ferdinand play at the Paramount Theatre. It is confirmed now. It should be very exciting as their new album debuts Tuesday, October 4, and their new single, "Do You Want To," is currently heating up. This should be an amazing show. If I had the resources and time, it would be nice to Sigur Rós on Wednesday night a well, but gotta work with what I have. This area is so ripe with great shows and concerts, it would be a shame not to take advantage of some of them. I think Franz Ferdinand is a good choice.

2) One of the most intriguing films I've read of on Peter Chattaway's blog, is the currently in production film written by Mike White (School of Rock), directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) and starring Jack Black, about the supposedly true story of a Mexican priest who moonlighted as a masked wrestler in order to save an orphanage from closure. It's been titled Nacho Libre, and is due out next year. Sounds fascinating, goofy and uplifting. Here's hoping that they pull it off.
