Larry, Dr. M. and I

Larry, Dr. M. and I saw Down With Love yesterday and give it a full six thumbs up. Great design, clever writing, sold performances and just a plain ol' fun movie. Renée gets a fantastic monologue at the end (one shot, I wonder how many takes) and the closing credits number will soon be a Sidetrack favorite.

Six Feet Under wrapped up nicely last night. No real messy cliffhangers, a little resolution and plenty of options for next season. Peter Krause rocks and he and his onscreen mother should both get Emmys this year. Better yet, they should get cast in a production of Sweet Bird of Youth. How amazing would that be?

One last media blip -- watched the TiVo'ed series finale for Dawson's Creek last week and it was the sweetest and saddest thing I've seen in a good long time. I sobbed like a little girl who'd just seen her kitty get run over by Daddy's riding lawn mower. I'm not even a big Creek fan, Dawson-adjacent at best, but the whole wrap-up was very well done. As a stand-alone, I'd watch it on Lifetime again over any Markie Post trainwreck.

In 48 hours I'll be on a plane to Vegas for an extra long weekend of fun, sun and dice. I just love it when they yell, "Go, Shooter!"
