  • Who am I?
  • A parent. A teacher. An ordinary person. Who happens to love film.
  • Also someone with the privilege of seeing many different motion pictures, courtesy of an amazing wife and an equally amazing mother-in-law, both of whom frequently help me find time to take time for me.
  • I am not someone who claims expertise or specialized knowledge. I have dabbled as a writer and once wrote, directed, shot and edited a short film for a college course, but even I recognize these experiences mean very little.
  • I love film. I love watching it. I love talking about it. No more. No less.

  1. Hey there James, I love the style of this page man. Can’t wait to get into reading it some more. I’ve returned the favor and have added you on my DSB Blogroll of Honor! πŸ˜€

      • Hey, good find with Tom here.

        Thanks following me as well. The blog’s been quiet recently, but I haven’t been: I’m now the Director of Television over at NextProjection.com. I still write plenty on film, and a lot of other talented people contribute there, so it’d be worth your time.

        Very best of luck! Certainly a good start (some great enthusiasm for WAJDJA).

      • Because Wadjda is amazing!

        And thanks for letting me know about NextProjection. I’ll check it out, especially since I noticed the blog has been quiet. πŸ™‚

      • AP US History, AP World History, and Holocaust Studies. But I taught English, too, for 12 years before switching over to history; love it! I am from Illinois but have found myself here in northern Arizona and loving the sunshine everyday. Makes me cheery.

      • I do follow her; I think she’s even been around my site a few times. Didn’t know she was in the Twin Cities, though. (I guess I probably just needed to read her reports on the Twin Cities Film Festival). πŸ™‚

        And History, huh. I love it, too. Actually my Master’s Thesis is all about History instruction, and some day I might finish a second license so I can legally teach Social Studies (I’m about half done). So. We have that in common, too. πŸ™‚

  2. You’re a concise fellow James, and it’s working for you. I’ll be poking around to read more of your stuff, so don’t mind me. Keep up the great job πŸ™‚

    • Awesome! Thank you so much.

      I’ve been off the blog for a few weeks (since I’m not seeing any movies right now), but when I return (soon, I hope), I’ll come and check it out.

      Thanks again!

    • First, thanks for checking in!

      I have a little. I’ll be back in consistent fashion eventually, though. Now that baseball season has started, almost all of my evening free time has gone toward the Great American Sport, or however it’s dubbed, rather than movies. Couple that with being busy looking for a teaching gig next school year (I have now found one), and I haven’t seen a single film since the festival in late April. I’m up over a month now.

      And I’ve found that my interest in discussing movies has waned as I’m not seeing them. Once I start seeing them again, I’ll return to blogging with a fury, I assume! πŸ™‚
