    What a great bio! You include the tidbits that we curious folks always want to know.

    Okay, so I introduced them! So damn me to hell already! Love the pictures. Do we win a prize if we can guess which one is Seth?

    noticed the Minneapolis phase; wondering how long you were there. The Coen bros latest, A Serious Man, explores the Jewish-Midwestern American experience, taking pains to accurately represent the city in 1967 (apparently the “Summer of Love” hadn’t reached the twin cities yet). Yet I noticed one chronomusical mistake – neither “Cosmo’s Factory (CCR)” nor Santana’s “Abraxas,” both referred to in conversation, were out in ’67 (both were released in 1970). So, have you, or anyone on here, (1) seen the movie?; (2) were there any other chronological mistakes?

    Saw the movie – can’t say it shook my world, but I’m more a product of the Rust Belt than of the midwest, and my family was solidly secular, so it’s hard for me to relate to the kind of crisis of faith the Coen Brothers depict. You’ve got to have faith to begin with, to feel the pang of losing it. (That’s also why Dante’s Limbo is unconvincing to me.) I don’t think I set foot in a synagogue until my thirties. The “Minneapolis phase” for me was about a year.
