Northern Michigan Event: Traverse City Comedy Festival Kickoff Party!

Traverse City Comedy Festival kickoff party number two is freshly tucked under my (still quaking from belly laughs) belt, and I’m declaring these parties must-do’s. Great food, drink and a buzz that starts climbing as Michael Moore and Jeff Garlin walk in and climaxes when they take the stage for a cameo stand up…

Logging Miles and Building Schools in Ethiopia

On Sunday, Jan. 9, a team of American runners (most with northern Michigan roots) will leave the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa on a 250-mile run. For 10 days they’ll jog through the ancient Rift Valley, sleep in highland villages and raise awareness with folks back home about rural poverty and lack of…

We'll Have To Find A New Room For The Maid: The End

In the end, I'm writing this story from a room I could never imagine, in a house I couldn’t visualize. And maybe it’s because we’ve been going so fast, so often, but it seems completely natural that this is my room. It seems as if it’s been my room all along.…

We are Skiing

The VASA has been groomed and the skiing is great!

The groomers worked for over ten hours yesterday (Monday December 6, 2010) and their work really paid off. They rolled the entire system in the morning, and by the…

We'll Have To Find A New Room For The Maid: A Victorian House Remodel In Petoskey, Vol. 6



They say that you learn something new every day. We move into our house in six days, so I offer up one bit of knowledge for each, pulled from those things I've learned in the recent days of remodeling:


1. Family is underrated, especially when it comes to remodeling houses and moving into them:…

We'll Have To Find A New Room For The Maid: A Victorian House Remodel In Petoskey, Vol. 4

Closing Night at the Traverse City Film Festival, "The Girl Who Played With Fire"





It’s odd to sit in a dark movie theatre and cheer for a woman who set her father on fire and likes to terrorize and tie up people, and tattoo things like “sadistic pig” on their stomachs while they are unconscious.…

Saturday at the Traverse City Film Festival: "Please Give"

I had heard quite a bit about this film: interviews with the stars, Catherine Keener and Amanda Peet; discussions about a moment in the film when Keener’s character, Kate, tries to give a man she thinks is homeless her

doggie bag from a New York restaurant, but it turns out he’s a customer waiting

in line. I had also heard about a controversial scene in which Keener’s

character and her husband buy

their daughter a pair of 230 dollar bluejeans. I was…

Friday at the Sixth Annual Traverse City Film Festival: "Happy Poets" and Rock Stars







The premise is so simple. The story seems so small: an unemployed, dirt-poor writer with no business experience decides to open an eco-friendly organic vegetarian food stand in a park in Austin and finds meaning, love and success in the process. But there is nothing small about this

film at all. It was the first standing ovation I experienced at the Traverse City…

Friday at the Sixth Annual Traverse City Film Festival: Where do people go to burn the Midnight Oil?

Ever since Michael Moore launched the first Traverse City Film Festival six years ago, I have wondered: where do the filmmakers and film lovers from all over the world go to play late at night in Traverse City, after all the movies and interviews and obligatory social events are over? I found out tonight: for many of them, especially filmmakers from out of town, it's the Park Place Hotel, on the Tenth Floor.


When I boarded the elevator in the lobby, a filmmaker who looked…

Wednesday at the Traverse City Film Festival, "The Tillman Story"





Headed from Lars Hockstad to the The Opera House for the 3:00 show of “The Tillman Story.” The mood of the crowd seemed to change as we entered the auditorium, which was more stately and formal than the previous theatre. Perhaps it was an instinctive sense of needing to switch from the frivolity of the first full day of the Traverse City Film Festival morning, and

the lighter and more humorous films most of us had seen thus far, in…
