À Bout De Souffle
The new semester is off to a breathless start. I'm teaching a demanding quant methods class I haven't taught in years (forecasting, queueing theory, linear programming, etc). I have to write two conference articles, travel and present them. And I have to take care of my faculty advisor duties. On the other hand, to be honest, it's probably no worse than most other semesters, so I hope to (eventually) locate the groove....we'll see.
The '07 film-a-day resolution hasn't fallen down so far, although I've had to lean on a few shorts to keep it standing. I'm resolving to blog once a week, and post early in the week if I can, to keep the rest of the week free of blogging pressure...
-- Jim Emerson announces a Contrarianism Blog-A-Thon for Feb. 16-18, and Lucid Screening is hosting a White Elephant Blog-A-Thon on Apr. 1.
-- There's a new issue of the amazing Rouge.
-- Just discovered these three Jonathan Rosenbaum essays at DVD Beaver: (1) "A Dozen Undervalued Movie Satires" (2) "Ten Neglected Science Fiction Movies" (3) "Ten Overlooked Fantasy Films on DVD".
Back with a post next week. Memo to myself: early next week!....
