...but only because my public posts also turn up on my author page at Amazon.
Generally speaking, I'll friend back anyone who friends me, although I can't promise to read all the blogs on my friends list. Thanks!
[If you're already on my friends list, you can ignore this post. It's just a placeholder at the top of my page for people who wonder why they can only access a fraction of my actual blog.]

Thanks for your responses last week -- turns out quite a few of you are still getting info about my goings-on here at LJ rather than at Facebook, so I'll keep posting at the end of the week.
New Linoleum Knife episode from me and djmrswhite; this week we talk about two big releases and four little ones, all the while trying not to doze off from our post-pancake coma.
Over at HitFix, I interviewed Chaz Bono about the new documentary and book covering his gender transition and I reviewed the dull-as-dirt Priest.
And yes, I should be busier. Working on it. Have a good week!

Is anyone still reading LJ to get information about my stuff? Are we all on Facebook now? Just curious.
In any event, the new episode of Linoleum Knife is up (also available on iTunes), where djmrswhite and I talk about Thor, Something Borrowed, The Beaver, Jumping the Broom, Hobo with a Shotgun and There Be Dragons.

On this week's Linoleum Knife, djmrswhite and I talk about grape soda and how Objectivism applies to people turning their cell phones off in theaters. Or, if you want to get technical, Scream 4, Rio, The Conspirator, and Atlas Shrugged.
Alas, Movieline.com downsized their freelancers this week, of which I was one, so that column is no more, but you can read my last pieces, which were about H.R. Pufnstuf and Car 54, Where Are You?, of all things.
Meanwhile, I at least get to fill in for a vacationing Grae Drake at Movies.com, so please check out my reviews of this, this, and this.
Hope you all have a good week -- I'll be out looking for more work.

On this week's Linoleum Knife podcast (also available on iTunes), djmrswhite and I discuss Arthur, Hanna, and various movies not named after the lead character.
This week at Movieline, I wrote about revisiting classic British TV series like Upstairs Downstairs and The Norman Conquests, I interviewed Tron himself (well, Bruce Boxleitner, anyway), learned romance tips from I Love You, Phillip Morris, championed a little-seen early film from Hanna star Saoirse Ronan, and picked my favorite movie amputees.
Have a great week!

On this week's Linoleum Knife podcast (also available on iTunes), djmrswhite and I discuss Source Code, Insidious, Rubber and Hop as well as Dave's tea-drinking habits and other pressing matters. (I'm also a guest on this week's Popcorn Mafia podcast, discussing the hideous Sucker Punch as well as a far better female empowerment flick, Spice World, but I don't know when that will be posted.
This week at Movieline, I wrote about the midnight-movie life cycle of Black Swan, picked five favorite performances by Frank Langella, reviewed The Owls, and made a case for the legendary flop musical At Long Last Love and the much-maligned Scream 3.
Have a great week!

On the new episode of Linoleum Knife, djmrswhite and discuss Sucker Punch as well as movie that didn't make us want to quit our jobs. Update: For reasons I can't begin to comprehend, the host site of the podcast won't make the new episode go live until around 10pm Sunday night, Pacific time. My apologies for the delay.
This week at Movieline, I covered the perhaps-underrated comedy How Do You Know, interviewed the great gay documentarian Rob Epstein, took a look at Gene Kelly's little-known Invitation to the Dance, remembered Elizabeth Taylor at her most over-the-top, plugged the little indie The People I've Slept With, and raved about Todd Haynes' new Mildred Pierce miniseries for HBO.
Have a great week!

With djmrswhite in Texas this week, I was lucky enough to get the lovely Grae Drake of Movies.com and the Popcorn Mafia podcast to co-host this week's episode of Linoleum Knife.
At Movieline this week, I wrote about the first two Peanuts movies, the best and worst of Mark Wahlberg, the early appearance of Nicole Kidman in BMX Bandits, pop-culture bad timing, and friend-to-children-everywhere Gamera.
I also got to guest host on What the Flick?! Busy week:
Hope your week ahead is all kinds of awesome.
