Blogging Around (May 23rd, 2011)
It's a long weekend where I live right now, which is nice because I get to escape the Monday morning blues of going back to work. I'll have Tuesday blues of going back to work, but that's another story. Having some extra time off allows me to surf the blogosphere a bit more and engage with fellow writers. In celebration of the Queen and of rebellious patriots where I live, here are some of the interesting articles published recently by people who fight till the death for the blogging cause:
-Stacia from She Blogged by Night has an excellent article that might have any interest in Bette Davis with a review of 1952's The Star
-Bob Turnball offers some well written articles that sum up some the films which played at this year's Hot Docs festival, his Short Cuts series
-Bonjour Tristesse shows some definite love for the classic Passion of Joan of Arc from 1928..
-Over at Surrender to the Void, the Void himself wrote a little post-mortem to conclude his Cannes festival marathon.
-Now that the dust has settled with the LAMMY nominations, check out The Dark of the Matinee to see how many categories the Mad Hatter is in the running for.
-Finally, check out fellow Reelists writer Chuck Canzoneri's latest One Strong Opinion article, in which he bemoans the previews used by big studios in attempts to tantalize audiences in the months before all those big blockbusters are released.
