Blog Issues

We’ve been having some server problems here in ‘herd country, hence the lack of updates and the inability to leave comments. Hopefully things will be resolved soon, but if you’re starved for some good reading (and I know you are), take a look at some of the blogs in my blogroll to the right.

I probably won’t have time to write extended entries on these topics, but I didn’t want to lose David Hudson’s link to David D’Arcy’s discussion of Michael Tucker and Petra Epperlein’s follow-up to Gunner Palace, The Prisoner, or: How I Planned to Kill Tony Blair. the new film focuses on the Iraqi journalist, Yunis Khatayer Abbas, who was briefly featured in Gunner Palace in one of the film’s most dramatic scenes, with Abbas being arrested under suspicion of being part of the insurgency and spending nine months imprisoned in Abu Ghraib with his two brothers.

Also worth checking out: Joe of Kansas City Soil has an insightful review of Jesus Camp that points to the film’s strengths in depicting the Pentecsotal subculture and comments on the film’s lack of a historical context for the Pentecostal movement.
