Last night we went to go see The September Issue.

Going by my blog and the pictures I post of me on here, I'm guessing you can assume I'm not all that into fashion. I'm certainly not Becky or Jon who like watching stuff like Project Runway. Hell, I even hate shopping. Hate it!

The irony was not lost on me that during a movie on fashion, I was wearing Eddie Bauer jeans, an LL Bean flannel shirt and Wolverine workboots. ...and no, I am not a lesbian.

Anyway, the movie is about putting together what is the biggest annual issue of Vogue. Again, I don't really give a hoot about fashion, or Anna Wintour. However, I am interested in process - how a book makes it from author to store, how a record is made and even how a magazine is put together...even one like Vogue.

It is a documentary, clearly, but it is like The Devil Wears Prada meets a documentary. And it shows you how eerily close Prada was to reality. But I liked Prada.....well, at least Meryl Streep.

So it was a fun way and almost funny to watch the similarities between the two. And with The September Issue you don't have to watch that douche who is/was in Entourage.

But really it was the process I liked - the one of creativity and decisiveness, the art and product, even though you never really see the final product. On that level, the movie delivered.

It is an A&E production, so it's probably only a matter of time before it hits that cable station. It's only 90 minutes - and there were zero previews. What's up with that?

...and for the record, we're up to movie #9 for the year. I still think we can make the goal of 12.
