Look, Ma! A New Link At!

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. - At last! A follow-up to my Wall Street Journal---or, rather, a little over a month ago! It is here: an interview with Paolo Sorrentino, the director of the new film Il Divo, a lively postmodernist look at the mystique of longtime Italian politician Giulio Andreotti. Enjoy!

Alive! And With a Question For Y'All!

EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. - Just wanted to let you all---or at least, all of you without Facebook accounts---know that yes, I am still alive, and that hopefully you will be hearing from me soon...if not with an actual substantive post (haven't been in much of a mood for that recently, a lack of motivation perhaps stemming from a David Bordwell-inspired crisis of confidence), then at least with, well, something cool and interesting to share with you all. Heck, maybe even something with ideas.

Here's an idea: Maybe I should just start a damn Twitter account already. Sure, I only get 140 characters to say what's on my mind---but hey, I suppose it's better than nothing, and people who actually bother to check in on this blog can at least be connected to me on certainly a more consistent basis than they're connected to me here. And theoretically, if I really do think something I feel like expanding upon in more depth, I'll have this as a back-up of sorts. But no, I wouldn't be posting about my trips to the bathroom or a whole lot daily routine-related. I may be self-centered, but not that self-centered.

Anyway, what say you, readers? To Twitter or not to Twitter? (The big question plaguing my generation...)
