    I watched the TNT movie "Door To Door" last night with my girlfriend. I HIGHLY recommend this movie to anyone here who has cable.

    First off it stars William H. Macy so you can't go wrong there. But secondly, the story is quite inspirational. Very unlike most made-for-TV movies, which like to pile on the cheese.

    For those who aren't familiar with this at all, it's the story of Bill Porter. He is a door-to-door salesman in Oregon who suffers from cerebral palsy among other things. He has been working since the 1950s. In fact, he is the only door-to-door salesman left in his company.

    But rather than bog you down with details, I would just recommend you watch the movie, or read the articles written about him. You can find one of them here -
    "There's a Japanese term called wabi-sabi, not wasabi, but wabi-sabi. It means an appreciation for the imperfect, the less than precision. The cowboy boots that you never polish because it's bad luck. That is completely wabi-sabi. Van Halen is that." - DLR 2002<br /><br />"Look! I can see their parachutes! They're ok..." - Tenshinhan, DragonBall Z

    Thanks, I'll have to check that one out. Macy is simply awesome. He is one of the reasons why Fargo is one of my favorite movies. The guy can ACT.
