Well, Nora, I'll tell you what. Tuesday, January 19th, you be at the Bagdad Theater in Portland, Oregon, and you can do just that. Because at 7:00 that night, 'Burning Passion' is going to screen as part of the Northwest Filmmakers Night.
'Burning Passion', for those of you who haven't seen it, has a lot in common with 'Julie and Julia'. For one thing, the director (me) also wrote the screenplay. The movie was shot on 35mm film. And fire features prominently as a dramatic device (it's the heartwarming story about a guy who ejaculates fire).
Beyond that, I'll let Nora –– or you –– decide how it stacks up.
There's a competitive part to the Northwest Filmmakers Night, which involves both audience members and judges voting for the best film. Whoever wins gets $200 and I'm not saying this so you'll come out and vote for me, but if I do win, I plan to use all $200 to buy beers for the nice people who support me and all the other Portland knuckleheads who think it's a good idea to make movies.

And Nora, if you're reading this, I'm serious. I'd love to see you there.
