elionwyr at least will understand this thought

Another quick post inspired by last night:

Oregon is serving as the location for filming the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

I am strangely proud that Oregon's once again been used in films as a post-apocalyptic wasteland.




(The previous such film was The Postman -- about which I had conflicted feelings back in the day, but which looked good, making nice use of this gorgeous state. As did David Brin's original novel, though I spotted a geography error: the main character wouldn't have had to cross the Willamette River when traveling from Eugene -- well, the ruins of Eugene -- to Corvallis. He'd just have to follow Highway 99, which stays on the west side of the river.)
