Dan Fagre's show has come down for awhile, but will go up again next week -- it is about the vanishing glaciers of Glacier National Park, and is a true labor of love by Fagre and other scientists from the USGS. Here's another website comparing glacier photos from the early 20th Century and recent decades.
Media Watch: Trash A Go Go is about where I guessed it would be at the final. That inept cowboy is gone, personable though he might have been. Li'l Kim bloomed late among the good dancers, so she might have missed the final anyway. I'd say that Gilles has the inside track and Shawn is the dark horse -- Melissa seems to be recovering well, and it wouldn't bother me at all to see Tony Dovolani win one of these things. I don't like the "next pro" contest, although I like the pros themselves. Aussie champ Kym Johnson dancing with a worthy partner was refreshing to see, as was big ol' Macksim taking orders from the young, but formidable, Russian lady. The Funk band which began the results show started strong, but kept everything on one level -- oops. The late James Brown might have kept his performances keyed up too, but he always varied the dynamics, even if he just went from frantic to frenetic.
I saw a movie called The Girl In The Cafe (2005), originally shown on BBC TV -- it was a rather nice romance, but had a flaw or two in its plot. Acting was NOT the problem. Congrats to everyone in the cast. I wish more movies would try to tell their stories this directly, even if they fail.
