    Have you talked about the weather recently? Of course you had. It's one of those weird cultural clichés which actually turns out to be frighteningly accurate. Every so often I'll be conversing with someone and suddenly realize to my consternation that we have been actually discussing the weather. What a boring subject – usually. But here in the Ohio River Valley, things can get kind of crazy, with warmth and sunshine one day and ice and snow the next. Is Global Warming to blame? That's for the scientists to decide, but I, for one, remember having a decent amount of snow when I was a kid.

    This weekend, the Kentucky Waterways Alliance presents the fifth annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival, a celebration of the environment which originates in California but goes on tour every year. This year, featured films include:

    +Let Our Rivers Flow

    +Of Souls and Water

    +Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard

    +Second Nature: The Biomimicry Evolution

    +Quest For Energy

    +Potato Farmers: Facing Climate Change

    It all happens tomorrow, Saturday, at the Clifton Center, located at 2117 Payne Street. Tickets are $15 per film. The VIP opening reception begins at 6:00, and $25 gets you admission, as well as a film ticket and a one-year membership to the Kentucky Waterways Alliance. (Current KWA members attend the VIP reception for free.)
    Complete information about the Wild and Scenic Film Festival can be found at its official website, and details about tomorrow's events, including film information and advance ticket sales, can be found at the Kentucky Waterways Alliance website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
