Rat Fink always cheers me up.</p><p>But some people don’t feel the same way about him. My much better half, Karen, for instance, confessed recently that Rat Fink is just so ugly she can hardly stand to look at him. I just gave her (what I imagined to be) a vaguely cryptic smile, thinking to myself, “She can be forgiven. She doesn’t have the history with Rat Fink that I have.”</p> Fri, 25 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Fletcher Powell 33530 at http://kmuw.org The Early Roots Of Crowson's Cartooning Indie Film Guide: Gojira! http://kmuw.org/post/indie-film-guide-gojira <p></p><p></p><p><i>Each week, Fletcher Powell finds the independent and non-commercial films showing in Wichita and the surrounding areas and brings them to you in this handy guide.</i></p><p>_____________________________________</p><p></p><p><strong><em>Ernest &amp; Celestine</em></strong></p><p>April 25, 7:30 p.m.</p><p><a href="http://www.watermarkbooks.com/event/ernest-celestine-presented-tallgrass-film-association-watermark-books">Watermark Books and Cafe</a></p><p><a href="http://tallgrassfilmfest.com/tfa_presents/special_screenings/ernest_celestine">Tallgrass Film Association</a></p> Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:47:58 +0000 Fletcher Powell 33429 at http://kmuw.org Indie Film Guide: Gojira!
