I Love L A...

By Batman, published on Jun 19, 2008

I've lived here all my life, so, my opinion is probably biased. In fact, I was born in Hollywood, CA, USA probably the most famous suburb of Los Angeles there is. The thing I like about LA is that it's extremely diverse, or to put more simply, just plain big. Of course, this may be a function of the county as opposed to the city itself.

This may be a matter of perspective. I live about ten to fifteen minutes south of LAX depending on which lights I miss, in one of the beach towns. But when I tell someone I meet online where I live, I usually just say, "LA." Of course, their followup... (more)

How Many Film Festivals Can There Possibly Be?

By Batman, published on May 25, 2007

Well, I'm here to tell you. This comes up because right now, the most famous festival, the Cannes Film Festival, is taking place in, you guessed it, Cannes. Which is apparently a French word meaning, "Film Festival." In any case, a quick check of the site http://www.filmfestivals.com will tell you that there are more film festivals each year than there are days of the year. You've probably heard of Cannes, not to mention Toronto and Sundance, and maybe even Telluride. And just recently, I heard about a new one dealing with movies shot on of all things, your cell phone.
