I’m still in the midst of my writing project, but Michael has been blogging up a storm and points to a couple of articles I don’t want to lose.
Also worth checking out: Michael’s “Notes on Web Video Form” is a useful reading of the form. This entry has the added bonus of a pointer to the very cool video, “Season 4 of ’24’ in 2mn30s” (all events in real time, of course), which as Michael implies, makes Mike Figgis’s Time Code look like child’s play.
My latest paper-related semi-addiction: streaming vids of the first season of Jericho, the CBS show about the aftermath of a nuclear attack.
Also, for future reference: this Chris Hedges article, “The Radical Christian Right Is Built on Suburban Despair.” I’ve long admired Hedges’ previous book, War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning (I saw him speak on this topic at Emory several years ago), and Hedges latest project looks equally interesting.
