Last Saturday's Events... TODAY

Last Saturday, August 1st, was one of the biggest, most joy filled days for many of us here at 'da Soup. First we had Rock 'n Roll Hall of Famer Patti Smith in with director Steven Sebring. Together they signed "Patti Smith: Dream of Life" a collection of stills and poems from the film of the same name. Patti kindly gave us a shout out that got the whole crowd (200 or so) cheering.

Then, after we caught our breath, Werner Herzog arrived and surprised us all by giving us a reading and answering questions before signing "Conquest of the Useless". Even though the store was packed to the gills, Mr Herzog had crowd hypnotized with the elegance of his perspective. The entire reading is below.
