"Remember, remember, the fifth of November"

Happy Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night. Today's a great day for reading a good book or watching a good film. :)

I am going to be quiet for the next few days; my parents are visiting us from Oklahoma, and we're running around the autumn-colored mountains engaging in all kinds of shenanigans, including driving the Blue Ridge Parkway and taking a Ghost Tour of Ashville. I will catch up with everyone as soon as possible.

In other news, I will be appearing at the Voices Film Series "Big Brother, Little Sister" events in Hickory, North Carolina on November 12 (Children of Men) and November 19 (1984) as a discussant after the films. Both events are free and open to the public.

"Big Brother, Little Sister"

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see of no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
