About a city

I recently re-watched Kurt Cobain: About A Son, a film I recommend. This is not a review (for a good one, read this, written by Sean Nelson), just an excuse to profess that I am a sucker for beautifully-shot footage of Seattle and the mountains, trees, and water bodies wherein it springs to life. In one of the film's many portraits of Seattle locations -- the interior of Elliot Bay Bookstore -- smack dab in the middle of the shot is a poster for a show "Awesome" played in 2005. It's a teeny tiny connection, but it doesn't hurt to see yourself interwoven into the fabric of an area you love through that pretty filter of film...the lay-person's immortality.
