"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

man on wire

Have you seen this documentary? Have you even heard of it? It won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2008 and it's magnificent. It's all about Philippe Petit's high-wire walk between the two towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. Yes, he lived to tell the tale. Yes, he's insane. Yes, this documentary is one of the best I've seen. Go get it and watch it!
