Blogolicious recognition

my IMDb buddy LeSamourai alerted me that two of my favorite critics have mentioned this project on their own blogs:by Jonathan Rosenbaum http://blogs.chicagoreader.com/film/2007/01/22/more-list-o-mania/

I should give props to my gf for mentioning the TSPDT website to Jonathan in the first place -- apparently it left an impression! And the editors of the TSPDT 1000 list referenced Jonathan's list on my website in order to include it in their tally. It's all kind of incestuous isn't it?

Reading the linked discussion on Dave's site pointed out several other blogs, many of which were unbeknownst to me. I've spent a good chunk of the day compiling a list of film blogs to look into further. Some like Reverse Shot and The House Next Door have proven to be great sources of info and insight to me in the past. I look forward to checking out Elusive Lucidity, Girish Shambu and Andy Horbal. And I don't think I've taken full advantage of the overabundance of material on GreenCine or IndieWire...

The question I have... how much time do my fellow cinephiles take to wade through the nonstop stream of film writing to be had for free online? It's like my mom's beloved Asian buffet -- sure you get your money's worth but you can leave feeling sick and bloated rather than satiated. A bipolar control freak like me has to be careful and find some way to manage all this content and have it delivered to me with little fuss and muss. I've spent a good deal of the day figuring out my Google Reader. I've got about 12 different feeds set up - let's see what they come to in the coming days...
