the sunday suplex 04/01/08
Some Sunday links to tide you over. Built like my ideal newspaper.
2009 Resolutions for Film Criticism - Aaron Hillis et al - Hillis has taken over GreenCine Daily, and is employing a quality over quantity approach. This is a podcast featuring him, and three other critics from New York. There's nothing revelatory in it but it's interesting and entertaining (although the fact that they keep talking over each other might imply one thing that is wrong with film criticism, and all human discourse).
New New World: An Exchange, A Conversation, An Epigraph - Ryland Walker Knight & Keith Uhlich - Haven't listened to the podcast yet, but the exchanges about Malick's The New World are quite wonderful.
PS In A Podcast - I haven't listened to it yet, but my friends Pete Smith and Paul Savage are both funny and have a new podcast
Preview: Sengoku Seventh Battle - Jordan Breen - The sport section. Entertaining event, and Breen as always got me psyched up. Read this, and then find the fights on YouTube.
And, things to do this week: The University Drama Society are putting on 'Elephant's Graveyard' by U.S playwright George Brant at the Arts Centre Weds to Sat. It's a new play that hasn't been performed in Europe before, which is unusual for the drama society but makes it all the more exciting.
And, the last couple of days, I've seen listening to The Skints self-titled e.p, 'Come All You Madmen' by The Briggs, and 'Sketches of Spain' by Miles Davis & Gil Evans.
Have a good Sunday.
