Papa's got a brand new link

"You fathers will understand. You have a little girl.
You're her oracle. You're her hero."
I'd like to send out a big thank-you to everyone who re-tweeted or re-posted or commented on Facebook about my link to the story about Friends of the Loew's winning their court case against Jersey City. I had absolutely no idea this was gonna happen. I had planned to go to the Loew's Jersey City Friday night, yes, but mostly because I hadn't been back there in months and I wanted to get in one more movie before the summer break. I was just fortunate to have been in the area when the news was announced. It was kinda exciting to be a reporter again, if only for a few hours!

Not much else to talk about at the moment. Memorial Day weekend was unusually cool, so I didn't go down to Coney Island like I usually do. I went to John & Sue's place to watch the movie for my Beach Party Blogathon post, which is coming up next week. I also got a last-minute invite from my new friend Sandi to an outdoor performance of The Taming of the Shrew by a local theater troupe. It was in a public park, and unfortunately, there were lots of brats running around the perimeter of the plaza who didn't understand (or care) that there was a play going on. The parents, of course, did nothing. What I saw of the play looked good though.

A lot going on here this month, so stick around. Your links:

Ivan reviews a DVD box set of The Ed Sullivan Show.

Jacqueline wrote a one-act play inspired by The Best Years of Our Lives. (Look for an interview with her this Friday regarding her new Ann Blyth biography!)

I Love Lucy in color? Will says bring it on.

Ryan (happy birthday!) thinks that modern movie fans' nostalgia obsession may be a problem.

Jennifer takes note of the Old Hollywood homages at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World.

Leah thinks silent movies could make classic film fans out of non-fans.

Here's an interesting piece on whether or not anonymity is necessary to write a film blog - from a blogger who is anonymous no longer.

Why do movies like Mad Max: Fury Road and the Fast and Furious movies feed America's car obsession despite the reality of car violence?

Sometimes filmmakers' expectations of New York are based on outdated film-related images.
