Sorry to be such a slack blogger.

Howdy-ho. :-)

Trying to be cheerful. Can you tell?

Apparently I will definitely get a phone call from R-the-director today. They were definitely making a decision last night. Not holding out any hope really.

A little tidbit - This conference (The XIII Biennial Conference of the Film and History Association of Australia nad New Zealand) looks really interesting. If you're in Melbourne. I'm kinda drooling over all those session titles....

~What is Cinematic Realism?
~Transnational Utopias: Centre and Periphery in Baz Luhrmann’s Red Curtain Films
~Australian international cinema
~Two or Three Things I Know About Stanley: Inside Dr Strangelove at the Kubrick Estate
~Darwin, sex and taboo in Jungle films of the 1930s
~Testimony in the Umbra of Trauma: Film and Video Portraits of Survival
~The Politics and Cultures of the Contemporary Film Archive
~Stop the World, I Want to Get Off: Uses and Abuses of the ‘New Cinephilia’
~Happiness, or Something Like It: Family in the contemporary American “smart” film
~Everyone was watching! Embarrassment and shame in women’s narratives of cinema-going

Anyway, I won't be there and I don't personally know anyone who will be so there's not much point to this post. Just that it looks really interesting.

Damn that you don't live closer to Melbourne so you could go.

Goodluck with the phone call today :-)
