Contributed to Flickchart’s Best of 1896/1906 post

I always enjoy these, and this one was especially enjoyable. http://www.flickchart.com/blog/the-top-20-films-of-1896-1906/

Wrote a Matchup of the Day for Flickchart: HANNAH AND HER SISTERS vs STALAG 17

Just a little series we have drawing some connections between otherwise unrelated films. Though we have one out today by another blogger that compares two obviously similar films. Anyway, it was fun to do a solo piece for the first time in a while! Here it is: http://www.flickchart.com/blog/matchup-of-the-day-hannah-and-her-sisters-vs-stalag-17/

Editing Flickchart

Flickchart’s editor-in-chief and co-creator has been on vacation for the past couple of weeks, so I’ve been serving as editor-in-chief of the blog in his absence. I’ve also been managing the official Flickchart Facebook page. It’s nice to have had these new ways of contributing to the site. One piece I edited and published but didn’t contribute to (except for the introduction) last week was this Blogger Q&A on favorite sequels: http://www.flickchart.com/blog/blogger-qa-whats-your-favorite-sequel/
