Oscar the Grouch sings "I Hate Christmas"

Hurts my ears, all that ding-dong

It's too bad how holidays ruin a perfectly nice autumn.

This is my favorite Christmas song. Sing it, Oscar!

New York Triumph #2

We totally saw Will Smith making a movie.

We got into town about 8 a.m. Sunday, and of course we couldn't check into our hotel, so we dropped off our bags and went for coffee and a walk. A few blocks of 5th Ave were closed, so we went to check it out. The store windows had fake broken glass in them, and there was fake broken glass on the sidewalk, too. There were fake plants growing out of the gutters. Lots of movie-making people around too, big cameras, bright lights, etc. One of the side streets was filled with a bus, a few taxis and other cars covered with a thick layer of dust.

The Production Assistants who were controlling the crowd eventually let on that the movie bring filmed is I Am Legend, starring Will Smith. The plot is that everyone has died from a virus, except Will Smith! And he has to fight vampires or something.

After quite a wait, they filmed a scene where Will walked about a block carrying a big gun. He was skinny, limping, and his hair was grey -- talk about getting into character! But after the scene was finished, he turned and smiled and waved to the crowd (to us!). The picture above is the only one we got, on Chris' cell phone. I swear he is in there somewhere.

It was cool that he was friendly and that our celeb-spotting was a celeb I actually like!

He should totally run for president. Or VP. How about Obama/Smith '08?

Oh wow I wish I could go to the Sugarcubes reunion show in Iceland. That would be so awesome. Happily, I did see the Sugarcubes live twice in the late 80s, though, so it's OK. And I actually remember it fairly well!
