Things I’m excited about: Finding Osama at Sundance & Bliss
1. Morgan Spurlock’s new film Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden recently debuted at the Sundance Film festival. I probably won’t be able to see it for some time since films like this don’t come to a theater near me in Muncie, Indiana. So, I’ll have to wait for the DVD. Until then here’s a taste:
2. Eric Weiner’s book The Geography of Bliss. Weiner a former NPR correspondent banished to report from the world’s most depressing places visits the happiest places on Earth. I’m all about chasing an idea from culture to culture and trying to make sense of it. It’s a bold move looking for something as abstract as happiness, but from what I’ve heard about the book, he does a good job of it.
Here’s a question for you:
Which is easier to find Osama Bin Laden or Bliss?
I just ate a cookie. . . no sign of Osama.
I take it Bliss = cookies in your world?
