Spurlock Holmes

Morgan Spurlock gained fame with his super-sized documentary, Super Size Me. I must mention that he is an NYU alumnus and used to be a playwright. He has a tv show called 30 Days and has worked on other documentaries as well. His most recent project was shown at Sundance this year and it's called Where In The World Is Osama Bin Laden. Here's the trailer:

Elissa and I recently watched a documentary which was introduced by Mr. Spurlock called Confessions of a Superhero portions of which are so beautifully shot. The film takes a look at four wannabe actors who play the roles of superheroes on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The movie felt a little long but it was fascinating to me to see what these people's lives are like. I've always wondered about all of those characters hanging out in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater.

Happy Chinese New Year! It's the year of the rat, so when you see one run by you while you're waiting for the C train, celebrate!

In other news, the renovations in Washington Square Park are well underway. The fountain is completely gone and most of the park is fenced off. It has been announced that NYU graduation is going to take place at Yankee Stadium! Should be fun! I wonder who's going to throw the first pitch?
