Looks like The Mysteries of Pittsburgh will be a movie, shot in ... Los Angeles! Public radio station WDUQ had announced that the Pittsburgh film office would be moving to LA, which made sense to me. But the timing -- and the loss of a film so clearly Pittsburgh-y -- just when the film office head is marrying her LA-based boyfriend looks, eh, not so good.
Speaking of other cities, I'm in NYC for a few days and of course checked Lauren Cerand's events listing on Maud Newton's site, but mostly it just made me sad that I missed Gary "Absurdistan" Shteyngart's reading Wednesday. Oh, that fab NYC photo is from this guy on flickr.
It's waiting on my iPod: Bat Segundo interviews John Updike. Like, major wow.
And speaking of wow, congrats to Jeff and his wife and new baby Marlie.
