On the road again: Austin, day 4

Work filled so much of today that dinner was take-out from a nearby Whataburger, a chain of my college days, with late dessert from Amy's.  All bad food all the time tonight.

A conversation with colleagues today turned briefly to bad movies and then to personal favorites and then to one of the movies I love, Grosse Point Blank. The Violent Femmes' song, "Blister in the Sun," was a key part of that soundtrack, so here it is, for your enjoyment.

From the same movie, the greatest few baby moments possibly ever on film.

The looks he and Cusack give each other are amazing. Staring into a baby's eyes can be as alien and yet as enlightening an experience as visiting another country, if you let it.
