It's not like I ever get out to see movies, but this looks like one to put in the back of my mind somewhere: Murderball. A documentary on playing rugby in wheelchairs.

I wanted to see "Murderball" at SXSW but it kept selling out, fast. Everyone who saw it was raving about it. Hopefully it'll come back to Austin soon.

Wow. Haven't ever heard of this movie until just now, but I found this review by a player/coach, and I'm intrigued. It's going onto the Netflix queue right now, in case I can't find it in a theatre.

The schedule. July 22nd at the Sequoia 2 up here in Marin, looks like the 'Noogans are gonna have to head to Nashville or Atlanta, but Jette's in luck with three different theaters on the 22nd in Austin.

For those in Chattanooga/Mayberry:

Murderball is part of the Indie Film Series and will be here from 9/30 to 10/6. Amazingly, only a coupla months after it opened in the "civilized world."

A meeting of Flutternoogans might be in order. Hell, the series looks decent this year, perhaps we should make a regular night of it.
