In other news, the song from ONCE, a tiny Irish movie that was my favourite flick of 2007, just won the Oscar for best song. Now, it was up against a whole load of Disney schlock, but still -- justice was served, and I am celebrating. If you haven't seen the movie yet, I recommend it. A small, gentle film with a beautiful message that isn't preachy, and one of the best endings I have seen to a movie in years. I loved it.

Sounds like an amazing conference.

I haven't seen Once - yet. But last night I was _so_ impressed with Jon Stewart, who called the girl out to give her acceptance speech after she was cut off!

Hey Trudy,

You must RUN to the video store to rent ONCE. Set in Dublin, girl -- you'll love it, I promise.

And yeah -- the conference was really fun. I am SO there next year.
