It’s Labor Day! Summer is giving way to autumn (at last). The weather is cooling down. Kids are going back to school. It’s the perfect time to do a little update/round-up, debriefing you on Pussy Goes Grrr’s past, present, and future. Let’s start with the past…
- A lot has happened in the past few months: I graduated in June, saw The Tree of Life, spent the summer with Ashley, and in August, moved into a new apartment and started a new job.
- Ashley, who recounted her summer here, is back in school now—and just got Internet in her apartment! (Another summer highlight: our friend RF dropped by to talk at length about Jim Carrey.)
As for the present…
- Paracinema Magazine’s lucky issue #13 is available for pre-sale!! This is a big deal for us because, well, we’re both in it. I wrote a retrospective of Bela Lugosi performances from the 1940s, while Ashley wrote a magnificent essay about pregnancy and motherhood in horror. (Which explains the image from Inside on the cover!) If you’re not compelled to buy the issue yet, don’t worry—we’ll be plugging it a lot more over the coming weeks.
- Today marked the start of the Nicholas Ray Blogathon over at Cinema Viewfinder. It’s already yielding a lot of valuable Ray-related writing; PGG’s contribution should pop up tomorrow afternoon.
- And speaking of blogathons: we’ve already received several contributions to the Juxtaposition Blogathon! Thank you to everyone who’s been spreading the word. It starts in one week, so there’s still plenty of time to write for it!
- If you don’t already, we welcome you to like Pussy Goes Grrr on Facebook.
Finally, the future…
- For the time being, we’re sticking to a loose posting schedule: Mondays are for One Hour Mark; Wednesdays are for Ashley’s Harry Potter series; and Fridays are for Link Dump. Tuesdays, Thursdays, and weekends are for everything else.
- Halloween is less than two months away! As we demonstrated last year, that’s our absolute favorite holiday, so stay tuned: we’ve got some major, horror-tastic festivities planned for October. It’s gonna rock. In a scary way.
- The past few weeks have seen a huge upswing in comments, and we’re very happy about this trend. Thanks to everyone who’s been commenting—you’re a crucial part of this blog, and we couldn’t do it without you!
