A worthy contender
I always say I'm out of the loop when it comes to film, but I really should've known about this sooner. I believe the other four contenders for Best Animated Film are all Hollywood productions; this one's from Ireland. And here's the NPR story. Nice to see that there's some actual history in this one.
I was born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus, rollin' down Hiway 41.
But really, I grew up in Cedarburg, WI, middle/working class. Have had an assortment of careers: Shipping/receiving/forklift driver, Punch-press set up & operator, computer programmer, insurance sales (wow did that suck), bookseller.
I have two great children, both living in Portland, Oregon. I'm married to the beautiful & vivacious Jill. Have lived in Bay View (Milwaukee) for 9 years. Now working (as of September 2013) for Downtown Books in Milwaukee (http://www.downtownbooksonline.com/).
