Things that are awesome

*The Brooklyn Aces at Floyd Bennett Field. For when you need your hockey fix.

*John Patrick Shanley's movie "Doubt." I avoid movies that explicitly confront Catholicism, because so often they're scribed by non-Catholic priest bashers who have no idea what they're talking about. But Shanley's movie is smart, and strikes a cord. Tony Kushner moderated the Q&A with Shanley after the film showed when I saw it, and he asked, "Do you belive in God?" Shanley looked at him like he was crazy, and had completely missed the point. And he had. It's not about God, so much as the culture, and the decision to live a certian kind of life, right or wrong.

*Daniel Craig, who rivals Sean Connery for the Best Bond Ever.
