Moving day tomorrow so I don’t have time for a longer post right now, but while doing some procrastination blog surfing, I learned that one of my favorire film critics, Jami Bernard, has joined the burgeoning ranks of film bloggers. Her blog, The Incredible Shrinking Critic, looks pretty cool. Thanks to Risky Biz for the tip. While I’m linking, Risky Biz also reports that Natalie Portman may be cast as Rosa in the much-anticipated film adaptation of Michael Chabon’s Kavalier and Clay (probably my favorite novel of the last decade, so I’ll admit that I’m ambivalent about seeing it adapted for the big screen). The source for the news on Portman? Michael Chabon, of course.
Update (seven hours later): Just came cross the news that Henry Jenkins now has a blog (thanks to creativity/machine for the tip). I’m just coming down from a late night of saying good bye to my CUA colleagues at Domku, one of DC’s best-kept secrets, a great little restaurant/cafe in Petworth, so I’ll write more about Jenkins’ blog later, but I’ll be interested to see how he uses his blog to talk about convergence culture in the context of blogworld.
