2 Movies To See After Thanksgiving Turkey

After you have your Thanksgiving Turkey or Tofurkey go and see MILK or Slumdog Millionaire.

Slumdog Millionaire is in my opinion the best movie of the year and has completely reaffirmed to me that Danny Boyle is a genius.


Sean Penn did a phenomenal job in his portrayel of Harvey Milk that I absolutely forgot that I was watching Sean Penn.

Both movies have a 90%+ fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and will not disappoint.

Trying To Understand The Financial/Economic Crisis

Two Town Halls will be dedicated to the Economic Crisis. If you would like to learn more check out these two dates.

Nov 42th - Financial Crisis: Perspectives from the UW
Monday, November 24, 2008, 7:30 – 9pm
Great Hall, enter on 8th Avenue

Most of us are still having trouble understanding what has gone wrong with the world’s economic system, even as we face difficult and personal decisions about how to navigate the crisis, and evaluate the proposed solutions. The University of Washington has organized an interdisciplinary panel of experts to discuss the fast changing economic landscape, including Professors Lew Mandell, David Domke, and Jonathan Karpoff. From the perspectives of finance and politics, the panelists discuss how and why it occurred, how it might be influenced by the presidential elections, and steps we should take to protect our own pocketbooks and get the economy back on track. KUOW’s Steve Scher moderates. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life and the University of Washington.

Dec 10 - Forum: The Economic Crisis
Wednesday, December 10, 2008, 7 – 8:30pm
Downstairs at Town Hall, enter on Seneca Street

The Institute for Policy Studies, a progressive think tank, and the Working Group on Extreme Inequality present an interactive forum examining the root causes of the current economic crisis, its impact on communities, and opportunities for action in the coming months. Panelists are Rep. Jay Inslee (invited); Peter Dorman, Professor of Economics, The Evergreen State College; Kristen Sheeran, Economics for Equity and the Environment; and Tony Lee, Solid Ground. Moderated by Alan Preston, Working Group on Extreme Inequality.

"Extinguishing Fireflies" is a new psychosexual thriller from director Alex Berry. Told through interlacing segments of collaborative artwork and multidisciplinary mediums, the film is presented as a collection of personal and emotional tension. "Extinguishing Fireflies" depicts the painful consequences that stem from shaming sexuality and smothering our deepest and most primal nature.
