it's fun to say poughkeepsie 

Well, I'm off to Poughkeepsie, NY, for the weekend to attend the 50th anniversary of the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar, named of course for the Flaherty famous for directing one of the first ethnographic documentaries, 'Nanook of the North'.

Nanook aparently died of starvation shortly after the movie was released while Flaherty went on to, well, make some other great films, I guess.

So it goes.
