I like learning about people like Roger. One of the things mentioned in the documentary was that he had a "Midwestern" style of writing, which was simple to understand yet he wrote intelligently at the same time. My writing style tends to mirror how I speak, and I always look for a funny angle even when the subject matter isn't necessarily funny. I really have nearly nothing in common with Mr. Ebert and his career path except we both have been on TV talking about movies, and we've both written a blog. Maybe that's more in common with him then I thought, now that I consider it.
Of course, one of the other passion projects in my life is taking photos.... and one of my newer cameras is the Polaroid Cube. It's small and has a specific purpose for me -- taking candid shots. I think most people use it to shoot videos with the Cube, but it also takes pictures, like these for example: (no, this is not an endorsement for the Cube -- I just think it's a fun little gadget and I paid full price for it, $99 - and talking about it was an excuse to transition into why there are photos in this post).

I shot this yesterday... it's only
a few days after the New Year
and Valentine's Day candy
is already stocked and ready.
