at Reconstruction, Michael Benton calls for a collective reflexion on "Theories/Practices of Blogging." for October 20th.

"Our intent in this section of the issue will be to collect a wide range of bloggers and link up to their statements in regards to why they blog (something many of us are asked) and any statement they have on the theories/practices of blogging.

If you already have a post on this you can feel free to use it, or, if you are interested, you can submit a new one.

We will link to each statement from the issue at our site, with the intent of creating a hyperlinked list of statements on blogging that can serve as an introduction to blogging (or an expansion of knowledge for those already blogging)."

Errata, Robert Davis' blog goes active again with a revamped look!
But no comments allowed... yet?

Review of Ferrara's Mary
Report from the Mill Valley Festival

davis a dit…

Thanks for the mention, Harry. OK OK, comments are re-enabled.

HarryTuttle a dit…

Good news, Rob! :)
I didn't mean to make it sound like a reproach. Did you forget it, or you wanted to drop the comments?

davis a dit…

Oh, I didn't take it that way. I do feel that there's something wrong with the current way of the blogosphere, comments scattered all over the place, so I thought I might go comment-less for a while. Plus I'm not sure I have the energy for them, sometimes. But getting rid of them completely is too drastic, and it's too hard to communicate with people.

HarryTuttle a dit…

Yeah I agree with you about the dispertion/dilution of blogosphere discussions. But for targetted comments, there is nowhere else to post them than on your blog if it's a feedback about your articles from your readers. These comments can't be redundant.

Anyway I appreciate your blogging again since I couldn't read Paste in Paris...

Orsay, the XIXth c. museum in Paris (Impressionist paintings), commissionned 4 feature length films, themed on museum and partialy on location in Orsay, to Olivier Assayas, Raoul Ruiz, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jim Jarmusch to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
What a dream team! :)
Orsay is a XIXth c. train station in the heart of Paris, on the river bank, converted into a museum with huge spaces. That's where I saw a payload of russian silent movies last year.

Hou's film, Orsay (under production now), homage to Lamorrisse's Le Ballon Rouge (1956) will star Juliette Binoche, and a chinese au pair girl.

Assayas' film, Souvenirs du Valois, stars Charles Berling, François cluzet and Juliette Binoche, about family memories and inheritance.

Ruiz' film will be inspired by Waszynski's infamous Dibbuk (1937), a jewish ghost story reminding jews were deported from this train station during WW2, shot in France and Chile.

No infos about Jarmusch's.
