I’ve just been formally relieved of TCA Press Tour duties by my colleague Alan Sepinwall, who will be covering the second half, and now it’s off to watch the Golden Globes with fellow ink-stained wretches Margy Rochlin and Robert Abele. Until I file a real item again (probably tomorrow), a word about links: Since my favorite film and television consists of work you can watch repeatedly and notice new things, and since I love Easter eggs on DVDs, and since I’m really excited about Blogspot’s dummy-proof coding system, which makes sense even to technological fumblefingers like yours truly, The House Next Door will take a similar approach to hypertext.
Rather than embracing a system where visitors click and end up being taken to the same old places (i.e., an Internet Movie Database page, or Rotten Tomatoes, both of which are wonderful, don’t get me wrong) I’ve tried to seek out material that approaches the highlighted phrase from a less predictable angle. If you’re so inclined, I invite you to look back through previous posts and click on links you didn’t investigate; hopefully they will bring you to an article or site worth seeing, and further stimulate discussion. I can’t guarantee that every post is free of lazy links (sometimes I’m too tired), but usually I try to make the effort.
