You are cordially invited to participate in the Juxtaposition Blogathon, the first-ever blogathon hosted by Pussy Goes Grrr, which will take place from September 12-16, 2011. The rules are simple: just write about two (or more) different movies in the same post sometime before September 16, email a link to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll post that link!
(If you don’t have a blog, you can still participate; just send us an email.)
As you probably noticed, the driving theme of “juxtaposition” is incredibly open-ended, and you’re welcome to take it in any direction you like. You can write about movies from any genre, country, director, time period, etc., just so long as you address multiple movies with reference to each other. You could compare a remake with the original; juxtapose a director’s first movie with his/her last; consider two disparate approaches to the same subject; or call attention to surprising similarities between two otherwise unrelated movies. Get creative! And above all, have fun.
One last note: if you’re planning to contribute, please RSVP by either commenting below or sending us an email, and start spreading the word—the more writers involved the merrier. Please feel welcome to use the beautiful banners designed by Dylan of Paracinema Magazine. (To see more of his handiwork, go ahead and order a copy.) If all goes well, we’ll start posting links to contributions on September 12!
