Hi guys! As Nat has mentioned, he's decided to take a bit of vacation (SLACKER!!) but has recruited a few people to make sure you don't get entirely stressed out while he's away and start sitting at your computer constantly hitting refresh to see if he's back. I definitely don't speak from experience at all!
Anyway, I'm Glenn, you most certainly know me from the comments section of the Film Experience and also, possibly, from my own lil section of the blogosphere called Stale Popcorn. Here's hoping I don't make you all want to do something drastic by the end of my tenure.
So for you guys that don't know me, here's a little bit of backstory.
I am Australian. I am a music critic (amongst other things) who worships Bruce Springsteen and Madonna. I am sort of stalking Hugh Jackman and Jamie Bell (omg, Jamie sent me a message on MySpace and included Golden Girls porn, more on that here). My favourite movies are Fosse's All That Jazz, Hitchcock's Psycho, Lynch's Mulholland Drive, Hughes' The Breakfast Club, Ray's Rebel Without a Cause, Mallick's Days of Heaven, Allen's Manhattan, Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge! and Darabont's The Shawshank Redemption (eclectic bunch, eh?) Oh, and I am a lifetime defender of Lindsay Lohan - I felt that was a vital piece of info.
I am a good patriot in that I like to follow my nation's industry. Sometimes we're really bad (2004 is a prime example) or sometimes really good (2006 was definitely an up year!) Over my short stay here I will discuss this topic a little bit more for you guys. Let you get a taste of what my country offers. Funnily enough, we offer The Lovely Laura Linney! So that's a bonus.
I'm not sure if I'm getting in here too early, but if I don't do this sort of introductory piece now I won't be able to for at least 24 hours (it's 6pm on Friday here). Right now I need to go get ready because I'm off to dinner and then I'm going to see either Danny Boyle's Sunshine (YAY!) or DJ Caruso's Disturbia (not so yay). I hope my friends choose Sunshine. And tomorrow I work at 6.30am and I am not a morning person. So, until next time I step out onto the great stage that is the Film Experience, enjoy the company of the other three guest bloggers (the swellegant Ja, Susan and Aaron). I'm sure between the four of us we can come up with something to amuse you guys. Lord knows though it's hard enough doing it for my own blog let alone someone else's! I hope Nat approves (hell, he chose me so I guess he's confident with me. Thanks!)
