All work and no play ... means I'm writing a lot!
During the next few months, I've got some exciting stuff planned. Starting this weekend, I will be contributing three columns to the blog Wonders in the Dark, which is counting down its 70 top musicals. While I can't reveal what I'm writing, I'll be posting there on Sunday, Aug. 28; Tuesday, Sept. 20; and Monday, Oct. 17. I will post a link to the article on my blog, and I'll try to answer comments there. I'm looking forward to it!
The Classic Movie Blog Association will hold its Guilty Pleasures blogathon on Sept. 18 to 20. This one's no secret -- I'll be reviewing "What's Up, Doc?" So come by and check that out.
I am going to debut a new feature called "Take Two," in which two bloggers have a conversation about a single topic. I have been working with The Lady Eve, and we are putting the finishing touches on our entry. Look for this most likely in September.
Carole & Co. is sponsoring its first ever "Carole-tennial(+3)" blogathon on Oct. 6 to 9 to commemorate the 103rd anniversary of Carole Lombard's death. I really want to participate but have not chosen a subject yet. With luck I will do so soon.
I hope to continue my look at Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers films as well as Humphrey Bogart's early career. I'll do my annual year-end countdown in December.
Plus I have film classes beginning on the Production Code at Waubonsee and the Silent Screen Comedians at College of DuPage.
All told, I'm busy! So stay tuned ... it should be a fun fall!
