Tuesday Bird Droppings

Ok, listen up people. There is a new sheriff in town. Duck is taking a break from Bird Droppings so you've got me for the rest of the week. What does this mean for you?

That's...really the only difference I guess.  Oh, and I'm bringing back the quote of the day.

Mike Sragow Gets Reel: 'Jews and Baseball' at Cinefest tonight -
First of all, who even knew there was a Baltimore Jewish Film Festival? I mean, I guess I'm not their target demographic but it seems like a funny thing for me to have just never heard of.
