Next month (September) work is taking me yet again to the other side of the pond and I will be in Germany for a week and then the UK the following week.  Last time I did this I was able to spend the weekend in Paris (which is rather frigid in February!) and I was…

A few months ago, back when I was testing my feet in the waters of Super8, I went on a bit of buying binge and one of the films I wound up with was “Fame”, the original film from 1980.  I’ve viewed the print once and based on that one viewing I have several points…
