Iron Giant this Saturday

I have wanted to see this movie for a long time. I just googled it and found out it is based on a novel by Ted Hughes, which I found suprising. I didn't even know he wrote children's stories. Might be worth checking out the rest of his writing.

Anyway, we will definitely be attending this movie, and would love to meet other families there. Send and email to mike at citykin dot com if you want to meet-up.

We saw Edward Scissorhands last week. I hadn't seen it since it was originally released in 1990. It was better than I remembered, but a bit too mature for little kids, especially the part where the neighbor tries to seduce Edward. They mostly ignored the film and ran around.

I thought it was interesting that this mother brought a crib to the square for the movie. She was offering face painting, I believe:

Not, "my spoon is too big", but a similar intermission cartoon:

Wow, I'm a strong believer in the urban "living room" idea, but the cradle? I kind of love it, but I can't help but think that there must be a less cumbersome way to bring a sleeping baby into this situation.
