This blog is long since officially retired.

You can find me, mainly, at Chained to the Cinematheque.

This Is The Relaunch

I want to be back here (as well as there).
I'll write about what I like and see where it goes.
This won't be your site for hip bands.
Posting will be as frequent as I want to be. I'll write about what strikes my fancy.
Air quality. Economics. Falling in love with girls on the subway. Crime. Dissonance. Whatever.
My real focus is still at Chained to the Cinematheque, but I'll put in appearances here as I see fit.

JLT/JLT Year in Review

Josh and Teresa at JLT/JLT are hosting their First (Hopefully) Annual Year in Review discussion on the year in movies, music and everything else. I'll be one of the participants, as will a number of other writers and critics whose work I admire; it's definitely worth checking out. Running all week at JLT/JLT.
