First, just wanted to let everyone know I'm still around. I've been completely slammed with work and family goings-on, but have some new things planned for the blog, so stay tuned.
Second, one of my favorite actors passed away yesterday evening. Sydney Pollack was a classic triple-threat: director, producer, and actor. I've always loved watching him on screen - he always had an air of being completely in control, most recently as the cool-headed legal eagle in Michael Clayton. Of course, his portrayal of Dustin Hoffman's agent in Tootsie was an equally great performance.
