Tuesday Morning Insomnia Links

Awoke at 4:30ish unable to sleep, so here are a few links before I head to campus for what will be a very long day (two classes, a meeting, and a research presentation).

  • Jason Jones has posted Teaching Carnival 3.1, an excellent collection of links to recent posts about teaching.  Kathleen Fitzpatrick will be hosting the next carnival on February 23.  I’ll be doing hosting duties on March 23, and given my interests in film and media studies, I’d love to get some participation from the film blogging community.  I’ll have a more specific call for entries up soon, but here’s some information on how to nominate entries (including your own) to upcoming carnivals.
  • Spotted on BoingBoing last night: a video featuring every swear word on every episode of The Sopranos, in chronological order.  I didn’t have time to watch the entire thing last night, but this is a fascinating, odd, humorous video. Not for the easily offended (Vimeo page).
  • Some good news for Indie Film Bloggers Road Trip, the documentary in which I am briefly featured: according to Sujewa, IFBRT will be playing at the Atlanta Film Festival in a non-competitive slot.  The film will be use to launch a conversation, presumably a panel although that’s not clear from Sujewa’s post, at the festival about the future of film criticism, blogging, etc.  I’m still planning to attend the film’s premiere on February 17, in New York.

    Yeah, ATL fest is still figuring out how they are going to use IFBRT to launch their conversation/gathering re: film writing – so far possible screening(s) & the fest, cable on demand in atlanta, & web streaming have been discussed. Probably in a week or so I’ll have a clear proposal from them & then we’ll move on from there. I suspect that before the end of February we’ll know exactly how ATL fest will be using IFBRT.

    See ya in NYC next week!
