Intriguing Quote of the Day (via Tarkovksy)

Andrei_Tarkovsky[1]

I’ve been collecting quotes about art and artists for some time now, because a) I don’t understand art or artists at all, and b) I want to. So, here’s a little something on the topic from Andrei Tarkovsky, whose films deal very heavily with the question of art and the artist and their relationship to [Read More...]

Gone Weddin’

Taking a week or two to head to Washington to witness. I shall return anon. Content may be scanty during the next few days. If my mostly-magical WordPress “Scheduler” function works properly, however, you shall not be left postless. …though whether that is a good or a bad thing remains to be seen. Y’all behave, now, [Read More...]

“The Ransom of Red Chief”

William_Sydney_Porter_by_doubleday

Gentlemen: I received your letter to-day by post, in regard to the ransom you ask for the return of my son. I think you are a little high in your demands, and I hereby make you a counter-proposition, which I am inclined to believe you will accept. You bring Johnny home and pay me two [Read More...]

Gorgeous New Trailer for Tomm Moore’s “Song of the Sea”

song_of_the_sea_poster

As I have surely remarked in the past, I love The Secret of Kells. Which is streaming in a number of places, so if you have not yet seen it for yourself, I urge you stop whatever it is you’re doing and GIVE IT A WATCH. If you have seen it, however, you will doubtless understand my [Read More...]

Church and Culture and Me

shutterstock_183131285

Remember that time when I said that Deal Hudson was going to let me be on his “Church and Culture” radio program? I was telling the truth. Really. See? (By which I mean: “Hear?”) Yes, we talked about movies. Of course. It’s what I do. Attribution(s): Old-timey radio courtesy of Shutterstock. [Read more...]

“Stranger Than Fiction’s” Sensational Title Sequence

StF

As I have doubtless mentioned in the past, title sequences are one of my (frighteningly numerous) obsessions. So I’m sure it will come as no surprise to my “readers” that a glancing Stranger Than Fiction encounter as I researched an upcoming Summa Short resulted in my viewing this video somewhere between 4 and 379 times. …somewhere…yeah. Aside from [Read More...]

I’m On the Radio Today! …Run For Your Lives!

shutterstock_89357977

Having a face made for radio’s bad enough. But since I’ve got a Lina Lamont-pitched speaking voice to go along with it, there really aren’t a whole lot of mediums left. (Hence, a blog.) Still, despite what I just said, I’m on the radio this weekend, courtesy of the great generosity (and, perhaps, suspect prudence) of [Read More...]

Remembering the Sound of Hal Douglas

shutterstock_200157953

Hal Douglas passed away last week. Who, you ask? Hal Douglas. Yes, you know him. Or at least you know what he sounded like. From his NY Times obituary: Mr. Douglas was known for a generation in the voice-over industry as one of the top two or three go-to talents, along with Don LaFontaine, the most prolific, [Read More...]

Sam Rocha’s “Late to Love”

Sam3

That’s Sam Rocha. One-time Patheotte. Academic. Soul-Singer. And most of all, a soul-searcher. He’s got a Ph.D. And a Kickstarter project for a SoulBluesJazzFunkFolk/Gospel album called “Late to Love.” An album that takes its name from St. Augustine’s “Confessions.” A project with the stated intention of making “the craft of the music its main priority.” The soundtrack of a [Read More...]

Tomasz Bagiński and “The Kinematograph”

The_Kinematograph_07

The Polish animator Tomasz Bagiński has been on my radar ever since the day I accidentally stumbled across his visually stunning Katedra. I can’t remember the details of my fortuitous discovery, but the short definitely caught my attention; it was gorgeous, atmospheric, and a bit disturbing. Hunting down his subsequent short, Fallen Art, I found it nowhere near [Read More...]
