The Other Dave Directed by Pasquale Greco Shows as part of Shorts Program 2, “Life and Death,” June 20 at 5:30 p.m. at AFI Silver and June 23 at 3:45 p.m. at Goethe-Institut

The Other Dave tells the story of Dave Manning, a man whose life irrevocably changed when he was struck by lightning 14 years ago. One day, that lightning will cause his vital organs to shut down, and he will die. Dave’s memory is spotty; he suffers bouts of depression; he’s permanently disabled and lives with his parents. One doctor suggests his manic obsession with the Pittsburgh Steelers—he drives a car called the “Steel Mobile” covered from grill to tailpipe with paraphernalia—stems from the accident. Director Pasquale Greco doesn’t openly address what we can learn from Dave, but it’s painted across his mother’s stoic face when she talks about her son. “His life has taken some twists and turns and he’s made the most out of it,” she says. “He’s dealt with it.”

Marlow It was nice to meet you at the annual Washington State Association of Realtors Education Conference. I wrote a post today on my blog about the event and also talekd a little bit about your real estate blogging. Take care Marlow and I'll try to stop in more often here and add some comments as well.
This is getting a bit more <a href="">suibjcteve</a>, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
