Weekend notes.

  • This week’s Saturday Morning Cartoons post will be posted tomorrow instead. My apologies for the delay, but time seriously got away from me this week!
  • Our post on The Maltese Falcon was reprinted this week over on the Movies Unlimited blog, MovieFanFare!
  • We’ve updated the banner for Christmas (yeah, we’re a little early, but still not as bad as the retailers who’ve been shoving Santa down our throats since mid-October!). See if you can identify all six featured films (it’s not that difficult, truth be told)!
  • This weekend is one of the few times that Carrie, Nikki, and I will be in the same place at the same time, so we’re going to attempt to record our very first podcast! Granted, if it’s a disaster, it’ll never see the light of day, but here’s hoping we can pull it off. If we can manage it, it’ll be up sometime in the next couple of days!

Finally, one of my favorite video series, The Second City’s “Advice from a Cartoon Princess,” posted an update this week featuring Snow White. These parodies parse the “lessons” young girls can learn from these Disney-fied heroines. They’re relatively tongue-in-cheek, but some of them are almost uncomfortably accurate.

I meant to post this yesterday for Feminist Fridays, but as I said at the start of this post, I suck, timewise. So enjoy it now!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

  1. Hey guys!

    I’m writing you today to let you know about the Trip To The Moon Blog-A-Thon happening at http://www.filmsquish.com on the week of November 29th, in honour of the re-launch of the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die Blog Club.

    Whether you want to join the Film Club, merely want to participate in the reviewing of George Méliès’ A Trip To The Moon (1902) aka Le voyage dans la lune, or just read and discuss, feel free to swing by and learn more about the event.
