Every summer the stars descend upon Traverse City, Mich. for the annual Traverse City Film Festival. Brought to you by none other than the Michael Moore; hero, patriot and film lover. And, doing all his goodness out of little ol’ Traverse City.
Field Notes’ “Lady in the Lakes*” Leigh McKolay was on hand for the festival, from her perch high atop the Park Place Hotel’s Beacon Lounge, watching all the film festival action unfold.
Late one night she met Jeff Garlin and shot the shit some, and gave him a couple Field Notes. The next night, she walked up on the scene you see above: “Jeff Garlin working things out in his Field Notes.”
“I love these things!” is what he had to say in his signature, throaty voice.
We’re glad you do, Jeff. Please pass some on to Larry David and Seinfeld and all the rest of yer bigtimer buddies. Good for writing down jokes and other hilarious, uncomfortable scenarios. Thank you, Mr. Garlin.
