I do not function well in this dreary northeast climate. I am light deprived already, and it's not even winter yet. It's perpetual dusk here in western NY. I've only been up for 4 1/2 hours, but I'm ready for a nap.
Tonight I'm going to a movie preview of RADIO, with Cuba Gooding Jr, and Ed Harris. I think this is going to be a good movie, and I've been waiting for the preview. I love that I'm on the movie preview list - in a few weeks, I get to preview ELF,and then LORD OF THE RINGS. Cool, eh?
Tomorrow, I have an interview with David Johnson, one of the creators and writers for PAX TV's "Doc" and "Sue Thomas FB EYE". David and his brother Gary are committed Christians who left the mainstream television scene to make quality family shows. While these two shows are the highest watched shows on PAX, often beating out network shows in areas of the country where PAX has a strong signal, they are usually neglected by the mainstream press. Seems like the media prefers to promote shows like Alias, where women run around half naked and things explode all night. If you want to support family programming, check out these two shows on PAX and then tell your friends.
Speaking of great new shows, I'd be remiss if I didn't give two thumbs up to "Joan of Arcadia" on CBS. I was skeptical about portraying a God who shows up personally to a young high school student in different forms (after all, the Bible tells us no one sees God and lives to tell about it), but it really does portray God in a respectful light, and I think it's really well done. Joan approaches God the way most of us do - skeptical of His existence, always questioning His plans, wanting to know the big picture instead of being content doing our small part well. God, on the other hand, just keeps equipping her to do the strange and unusual tasks He gives her, one task at a time - things she complains she's not qualified to do, like building a boat. In any event, the show is worth checking out, Fridays on CBS.
Note to Aunt Kathy: I promise to try and write more regularly, because I know how boring study hall monitoring can be. I wouldn't want those pesky high school students to bore you to tears with questions about the Puritans. :)
