And then this morning, when I was talking to my friend Joel, I learned that he and I are actually mentioned in the introduction:
It's wonderful to be mentioned in this context. I was reading Filmmaker this morning, in fact. More importantly, the news comes like the smell of freshly brewed coffee piercing my sleep-fogged brain. These days, I have a hard time remembering that I have done things that matter, no matter how much respect I get for them at present. Although it's odd that I didn't come across this citation previously, I'm delighted that I discovered it now. That's what I call serendipity. And now it's time to cue up the Animals in my head.
