Love Letter to Ricky Gervais

Dear Sir Gervais,
I dunno if you want to get a title from the Queen, but I'd write a letter of recommendation if that would help.

PS ... Your interview with Kurt Anderson on Studio360 was pure brill and toads inspiring.

Apple iTunes

Oh the joys of the Madonna episode of Glee! We'll need to watch it over and over again. The best way to do that is to download it from iTunes.

And when purchase anything from iTunes via links you see on our blog, we receive a little stipend that helps us meet all the costs associated with producing a world-class film festival. Everybody is happy, except perhaps for Sue Sylvester.

Ross ....  You know what? Life is precisely like the canoe trip in Sherman's March: There are constants like you and your sister floating in the canoe as well as more ephemeral elements, like the woman who swims through frame and thus through your life. Pure joy to behold. Thank you. Love, Meg

Please never stop being Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad. There is a very good reason why your element in the show's periodic table-inspired opening credits is O.

I love you.

Love, Meg

Okay they're not even one of our sponsors but I have to say I enjoy their service. They've got a great user interface that lets manage our many online products (store front, email accounts, etc.) and when I call them to ask dumb questions, they answer the phone. And very quickly! Plus let's give a big woot woot to them for being a local business. Yaay Arizona.

Just sayin'.

NAU College of Arts & Letters Film Series

Monday, April 5, 2010 0 comments
It's easy to get caught up in the drama of starting a new film festival and completely neglect film events that go on all of the time in Flagstaff.

For instance, the College of Arts and Letters and the Cline Library at Northern Arizona University join forces to produce themed film programs that change each semester. This semester's theme is "Love and War, Costumes and Clowns".

This week's screening, To Live (Huozhe) by Yimou Zhang  (1994, 125 min., Not Rated), is an ambitious and political, yet intimate epic of one family from the 1940s through the1960s in revolutionary China is in Chinese with English subtitles.

You can find out more about the program by visiting the CAL's web site [ web ].
