passing threading.Thread() and function object

Hello,

I'm new to Python programming, so please excuse me.

thread = threading.Thread(self.somefunc())
thread.start()
print "Thread started"

def somefunc(self):
        while (1)
                print "In thread"


"Thread started" never gets printed, but "In thread" gets printed
repeatedly.  What is going on?  It seems like thread.start() is blocking
and effectively running self.somefunc() as a normal function.

Thanks for the help.
