goodbye to goodwill


the goodwill in downtown los angeles, on broadway between 2nd and 3rd, closed yesterday as explained by the los angeles times the day before it closed. we were planning to bring by a donation last week, but got rained out. now we’ll have to trek to the next-closest drop-off location when we finally get our act together.

we saw the coen brothers’ version of true grit on new years eve, and it was a fantastic film, although i think it fell apart a little at the end. the dialogue was excellent, the acting met it, and it was shot as beautifully as you would expect from the usual coen brothers team.

i don’t know that i have ever seen the 1969 version of the film, and i know that i have never read the novel that both are based upon. two things to correct, eventually.
