It would seem unlikely that I could see anything here, regarding flicks, that hasn't been seen first in NY but I think this may be the case with the "one week only" showing of The Dish which I saw a few weeks ago with Magee when he was in town for Jazzfest. Its a fictionalized true story about the satelitte dish relay station in Parks, Australia that was integral in beaming the video signal for the first moon walk. Good wholesome fun. Ya'll check it out, I mean if it ever gets to the backwaters of Manhattan. " I scooped 'em ma, I scooped the big city boys and girls." Of course it may have passed your way last year which would account for why I see no mention of it in Nyker.

  • To set the record straight I did, thumbing through back issues of the New Yorker, find a mention of The Dish, with mediocre review, dated to a time that put it in Manhattan, as usual, several weeks in advance of my seeing it here. So, no scoop, obviously. What presumption on my part. As if I could ever scoop a New Yorker. What kind of idiot must I be? (That last is a rhetorical question by the way, no response neeeded)
