a film fest volunteer wrestles with an unruly patron over film theory


Today's image, brought to you by my husband. I'm in the midst of my volunteer activities at the Wisconsin Film Fest, and as the photos suggests, I take my job seriously.

Actually, this is our "buddaaaaay" Steve and me, demonstrating his version of Indian leg wrestling. (Sorry, Native American leg wrestling.) When I was a kid, we laid on our backs head to toe, raised the leg closer to your competitor, then hooked legs, trying to sending them into a backward summer-salt. Steve's version requires standing. Ugh. I'll take reclining any day.

You're gonna be stuck looking at this shot for several days as I've got a number of irons in the fire until mid April. I will try to get in a few posts and make the rounds to those of you who know me. Sorry, can't ditch me quite that easy. Plus by late April there may be some color in these parts worth sharing.

There is always something new to learn, no matter how old you are.

LEG WRESTLING!! Oh my, I've not thought about that for years. My brother and I leg wrestled allthe time....on our backs to. Does this mean we were lazy playing?
