My mind is elsewhere. Some mistakes. The actress guesting on "The L Word" is Kristanna Loken. Loken. One "k". The Charles Burnett movie is "To Sleep With Anger". I'm sure there are sundry more mistakes. Blogging can be hard because there's no editing. Though some people do go back and correct their blog (Dave Kehr just did that, because he went back and corrected his mistake in atrributed a blog entry on David Bordwell's blog to Bordwell, when it was posted by Kristin Thompson). The blog entry that Dave Kehr referred to was a fascinating entry by Kristin Thompson about the problems with the idea that films will be available online, bringing up issues of copyright, of intellectual property, of clearances, etc.

Of course, a lot of this was prompted by the pair of articles in the Sunday NY Times Arts and Leisure section by A.O. Scott and Manohla Dargis about the "future" of movies, in particular, the different sort of "availability" with different "platforms" and so on.

Talked to Charles, who had a colonostopy a few months ago, and he told me that the reason for the gassy feeling is that you get pumped up with air (like a balloon) so that the camera can go into the intestines without danger of being stuck. So the gassy feeling is all the air inside you.

According to the Wolfe Video blog, on Sunday night, OurChart (the lesbian website tied into "The L Word") crashed, because so many people (women) logged on to discuss the season finale. Jennie Olson (on her blog) noted that the "17 Reasons Why!" sign included on the show was an actual "landmark" in San Francisco.

Been watching The Food Network. And watched "Woman Chases Man" on TCM. Minor, but charming. How could it not be, when it has Miriam Hopkins and Joel McCrea at their most delightful?
