The Way We Link

on blogging
NY Times "Exposed" the blogging piece that the sphere is talkin' bout and
Gay Prof has a chart on the celebrity status of bloggers. I'm apparently "middling" in nearly every category. Not a real internet celebrity [sniffle]. Funny stuff

on Sydney Pollack
Three pieces on Sydney Pollack's talent as an actor: The Projectionist, Bright Lights After Dark and Humanizing the Machine. Dave Kehr will miss him as a mainstream director, too. Movie City Indie has a whole slew of videos of interviews about his films

on, well, other stuff
Dennis Cozzalio asks a gazillion (okay, 36) movie questions for readers to answer. My New Plaid Pants brushes its teeth with Jesse Bradford, he of the endearing if limited lopsided grin. He Shot Cyrus and Dear Jesus have both shared 5 movies they 'don't want to watch'

Thanks so much! I've got to say, every time you post one of these link-lists, my bookmarks folder gets more and more packed.

I loved that blog celebrity thing. I'm about 70/30 between "middling" and "oscure".

My favourite bit was:

"Celebrity: Nobody has noticed that all your entries are really just summaries of news feeds. You have not posted an original idea in years."

Which is why I don't read Perez Hilton, Pink is the New Blog, or any other of those sort of blogs anymore.

Thanks for the links, Nathaniel! And all these years I thought I was the only one in the world who appreciated Pollack as an actor.

Oh, and don't be miffed - from what I've read, "middling" sounds like the right place to be. (Rather than "Celebrity" because then I'd have to despise you.)
