Marfa, Texas, Superstar

Marfa, Texas, is one of the great movie sets that goes on after the lights and cameras leave. This year, two films shot there .... No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood .... are up for best picture. I don't think I've ever been there, which is a shame. Located in the West Texas desert near the Big Bend, it's a known po-mo artist colony. You can actually get a New York Times there. And this is their big moment in the spotlight.

USA Today and CNN both had pieces on this this week.
