7 Questions with Wall-E Director Andrew Stanton

Andrew Stanton is the man behind Wall-E, the animated apocalyptic tale about the last robot on earth. From the Oscar-winning director who also brought us Finding Nemo, in my opinion, this is his most brilliant work yet. I recently met up with Stanton at Pixar headquarters for another exciting installment of Seven Questions.

What do you hope audience members will take from Wall-E?
Andrew Stanton: I hope they are just as entertained as with other Pixar movie experiences but in a fresh, new way.

French actress Marion Cotillard is not a household name … yet. But her Oscar-nominated performance in La Vie En Rose, playing the late French chanteuse Edith Piaf, is nothing short of brilliant. She deserves to take home the Oscar, and then the whole world will know of this bright, young acting talent.

I met the delightful French actress for 7 questions for 7x7.


Rocket Dog Rescue Benefit

Greetings chums,

I want to invite you to a once-in-a-lifetime event this Friday night to benefit a wonderful woman who lost her worldly goods, her home and three foster dogs in an horrific fire just before Christmas.

Pali Boucher dedicated her life in recent years to finding homes for rescue dogs. Many friends of mine have adopted some of Pali's four-legged friends and experience the never-ending joy a dog can give.

Tomorrow night at 8:30 p.m. at Slims on 11th Street, I will be the master of ceremonies for a benefit for Pali so that she may get back on her feet and find a new home. This will be a fun, groovy night out. Please come and enjoy some comedy and music and help support a woman who has given many dogs a home and now needs a home herself.

Harvey Milk was America’s first openly gay politician, and his life was cut tragically short when another Supervisor, Dan White, gunned him down at SF City Hall along with Mayor Moscone in 1978.
