    The story itself was very entertaining, but Laura's writing has an "OMG!" teenage-y quality to it that made it a chore to read.

    If it is the same Ken Burns, he does many of the documentaries that air on PBS, he's done one on Baseball, Jazz, etc. etc...

    I think Christ was commenting on her NOT knowing Ken Burns, and how it was a thumbs down...

    I know, and I replied that he is a documentarian. I was implying that documentarians aren't as popular as filmmakers and movie stars.

    I'm with Thomas on this. Not everyone watches a lot of documentaries. I don't, but I watch a lot of other films. It's very elitist to think that everyone should know the name of someone like Ken Burns.

    yep.

    i havent seen one of his documentaries, either. maybe i recognized his name from browsing around the htf or imdb, but i would think that most people would at least know the name.

    The only reason I know who Ken Burns is, is due to the Simpsons :b

    Right? He was on the Simpsons???

    Depends on the context. Now that Mark mentioned it, I do think I remember his name from The Simpsons and I've likely heard it elsewhere. If he called for Chris Rock, I doubt I'd put two and two together. Chris Rock and a documentary? My first thought would be WTF? But after hearing it was on stand-up, well that makes some sense. Even so if the guy didn't specify documentary, I'd assume he was filming a live show.
