The quest for frisson - Roger Ebert: The Essential Article

I have been a longtime fan of Roger Ebert. If you don’t know know who he is or what he is battling, and winning, I must add, you can read the Esquire article.

Roger Ebert: The Essential Man

It has been nearly four years since Roger Ebert lost his lower jaw and his ability to speak. Now television's most famous movie critic is rarely seen and never heard, but his words have never stopped.

I too am an avid reader. When not swamped working, I try and read 2 - 3 books a week. I do not have a TV and feel that reading helps me think, create and maintain a certain state of mind, that in this world of chaos (shootings, war and poverty), incompetence (BP, car recalls and our politicos) and general pop culture nonsense (Hi Britney!), reading keeps me sane. Well, as sane as I can be?

I have followed Roger Ebert on Twitter (@ebertchicago) since day one. You should too. This is a man of pedigree, sensibilities and depth. Regardless whether you agree with his politics, you should hear him out. it is like reading a good book.

This latest article by him is so thought provoking, so deep in meaning - I suggest you go read it. Will do ya good!
