Warning: The following post is not interesting.
So I'm home sick from work today, bored, and I've just been bouncing around the internets. A lot of you know that I'm a big documentary nerd. There's a guy, Eddie Schmidt, who's made a bunch of docs I've liked whose blog I check every once in a while. You may remember I interviewed him for my blog at one point. Anyway, I remembered that he had been involved in a doc about the Warner Brothers (of Warner Bros. fame) that was close to being done. The film is aptly called The Brothers Warner. I thought Eddie was co-producing it with Cass Warner, granddaughter of Harry Warner, but I couldn't find his name on the IMDb entry anywhere. I did another search to see if he was no longer involved in the project. I couldn't find anything, but I was now interested in finding out more about Jack L. Warner (who sounded like a real jag and is pictured above), so I checked out his Wikipedia entry. Turns out he has the exact same birthday as me! Then I went and checked out his IMDb entry. Damn, did this guy produce a shitload of movies (273)! Then I remembered I wanted to look up the John D. and Catherine T. Mac Arthur Foundation because I'd seen their names on plaques at the Shedd Aquarium, the Garfield Park Conservatory and as donors for a bunch of PBS shows and I didn't know who they were. Turns out he made his money in insurance.
And you thought I was looking at porn. Shame on you.
