Not Underground Film Links: Aug. 28, 2011
So, I’ve been doing some thinking about re-jiggering my weekly links posts as I think they’re getting somewhat on the tad predictable side. Also, through loosely monitoring what readers are actually clicking on, I need to re-think some things about this series. So, with that in mind, here are a bunch of links that either have nothing to do with underground film or are very loosely connected to the scene. The first two have a very personal connection:
- The New York Times profiled the website Cinema Treasures, which publishes articles and reminisces of old time movie theater palaces. It’s a nice article if you dig old movie houses, which I’m sure you do. But, as a side note, I wanted to mention that I briefly worked with co-founder Ross Melnick when he was hired as the new editor for the American Film Institute’s Catalog of Feature Films. However, he quickly left to go teach, I’m pretty sure he said somewhere in the south, but the article mentions Minnesota.
- On a similar note, Mike Rollo posts an update on The Broken Altar, which you can guess what it’s about.
- Ok, this one’s actually underground: It’s another amazing reminiscence by Nathaniel Dorsky, this time about life in San Francisco in the ’70s.
- How to make computer art on the cheap: Buy a video gaming device, punch it and publish the results.
- The always busy Drew Henkels never gets enough good press — and I mean that sincerely. Donna k. attempts to rectify.
- Lastly, one of these days I’ll get over my anger at Clint Enns abandoning Winnipeg, but that day is awhile off… But, seriously, Clint is and will be a good pal and I wish him the best of luck in his new academic endeavors in Toronto. And, Aaron, don’t mess up Cineflyer or there will be Hell to pay.
That’s it for this week!
