Matt Coker did an amazing profile of me. Wow.

John Gilhooley took the photo.. now go read the article!

UPDATE: Maggie just brought the print copy in. The headline on the cover is really cool: "BRAVE NEW FILMMAKER: Jim Gilliam fought the Bush Administration, Fox News, and Wal-Mart. Now he's squaring off with death."

Also, the website to ensure you are an organ donor is at, even though the organization is called Donate Life. I messed up on the link in the article.

I'm sorry to see you look so weak! I hope you are stronger then you look!

Please note the sock monkey in the upper left hand corner. I love that monkey!

NJGuardsman: I prefer to think of him as as lean and mean rather than weak. He's just too strong to think of him that way. 17% of his lungs can whip 17% of my lungs any day.

Dave E.:

Thanks for showing to the rest of the world what an ancient concept known as 'character' means in crazy crazy MBA-merica.

I tip my hat to ya Jim.

Oh...and chair dancing sounds like tons of fun. I'm all about the chair dance tomorrow.

hey jim, left this on the update blog - they are using a strange link for the donor registry - i figure it will create a bunch of traffic and you might want to give them a head's up that it's not

still praying!

Tom from Madison:


your life and work are an incredible inspiration to many, but especially to progressives who can find encouragement to reject the ugly present in pursuit of a brighter future. I continue to be amazed. Please, stay strong!
