Today's Birthday Boy
I check the Internet Movie Database more religiously than I go to church so it's one of my daily habits to see who is officially one year closer to death.

Today's Birthday Boy is Patrick Fugit. Patrick first caught my attention as the wunderkind reporter in Almost Famous alongside the glowing Kate Hudson. Patrick stars as the alter ego of director Cameron Crowe, who actually did lie about his age to write for Rolling Stone magazine while still in high school. This flick follows Patrick as he begins his very first writing assignment and in the process manages to hit every bump on the road to adulthood. I highly recommend Almost Famous for it's humor and integrity, and it's probably one of the most genuine films about growing up. If you're a fan of Elton John, Pink Floyd, or Simon & Garfunkel the soundtrack will also add an extra incentive to watch this one.

Also on Patrick's resume is a little movie called Saved!. Saved! is a darkish comedy about a young, very devout Christian girl and the trials she faces (and believe me, there are many) after she becomes pregnant from her homosexual boyfriend (yes, you read that correctly). It also stars Mandy Moore who is surprisingly adequate as the bitchy, holier than thou classmate and even Macauley Caulkin sneaks in an underrated performance as the handicapped and acerbic brother. Oh, and Patrick Fugit is in there somewhere as a potential love interest. He may not star in Saved! but I recommend it nonetheless.

Orhan: I'm always happy to make recommendations. For example - Don't see Running with Scissors. It was awful and I'll explain why tomorrow.

Emma: Yes, ma'am!
