Today's Bitter Irony

I'd really like to see this movie -- Soul Power -- it's a documentary of a concert in Africa in the 60s with a bunch of R&B acts like James Brown, as well as Miram Makeba, who was one of the first African performers to make an impression in the U.S. in the 60s.

So I went to to use their movie searching tool. I typed in Soul Power, my zip code -- 22101 -- and here's what showed up. I am not joking.

The McLean Family Restaurant

which is probably one of the whitest places on the face of the earth. At least on the East Coast. And I'm pretty sure James Brown never performed there.

I want to see the new Vogue documentary -- called The September Issue. A bit fluffier.
