OK, wow. Whew. This is pretty intense. And amazing. Let me catch my breath and collect myself. All right. Here it is: I’ve got three different pieces of exciting, awesome news that couldn’t wait any longer. They have to be shared now. In no particular order, here you go:
1) I’m now a guest contributor at The Film Experience! I’ve written two pieces for this most righteous of film blogs so far: one on a Ruffalotastic sex scene from The Kids Are All Right, the other on the poignant opening of Picnic at Hanging Rock (pictured above). Go, read, comment, s’il vous plaît!
2) The Dancing Image’s Blog 10 is up! It’s a self-selected collection of film bloggers’ best posts from the year 2010, including ones from Wonders in the Dark, Cinema Viewfinder, Acidemic Film, and countless other stellar film criticism purveyors. Also, I’m in there, with my two “Horror is everywhere” posts from October.
3) Paracinema #11 is available for pre-order! That’s right: a full issue of essays on genre film, entirely written by women! Can you think of anything cooler to spend $7 on? No? I didn’t think so. I’ve pre-ordered my copy. What about you? (Oh, and if you haven’t already, you should go vote for Paracinema [Best Magazine], Trailers from Hell [Best Website], and Final Girl [Best Blog] in the 9th annual Rondo Awards.)
OK, that’s all I have to say for now. Please follow these links to their destinations, and enjoy what you find there! (I.e., hopefully lots of high-quality writing.)
