— Errata Movie Podcast —

Well, I've had such fun working on the podcast with fellow film writer J. Robert Parks that we've decided to launch a new movie web site full of reviews, interviews, and textual mayhem. And with what will likely turn out to be a crippling degree of boldness, we've included a posting frequency in the site's very name.

It's called Daily Plastic, and I hope you'll check it out. The podcast will be moving over there, but the transition should be seamless. And I'll be posting more frequently than I do here at good ol' Errata, beloved and cob-webby.

I've been hooking up technical do-dads, so Mr. Parks has taken more than his fair share of the pizza, but not to worry. I fully intend to sabotage the remaining pieces by picking off the anchovies. Wait, back up. I fully intend to carry my own weight as we go forward.

More plastic goodies are in the works. Do not be daunted by the movie grid. It's there to help.

Shoot. I was hoping the "new project" you'd been hinting at was gonna be something cool.

Oh well.

Perhaps we can all raise a glass in honor of the launch of Daily Plastic in a couple weeks!

You mean like an iPhone app that would help you build and manage your film festival schedule, with location awareness and links to coverage? Yeah, that's next year. Kindly keep it under your hat.

Ah, neat -- I mean, the new site, though an iPhone film app would be cool too (I say that because it would be, and also because I'm trying to talk myself into splurging on an iPhone, particularly the new white one). :) That grid you've got at Daily Plastic is nice -- very easy to read. Will you and J. Robert be podcasting from TIFF?

You know you want one, Michael. All your friends are doing it.

Thanks for the grid feedback. We're trying to convey a lot of information in limited space, but I hope it feels manageable.

I imagine we'll try to record a few things from TIFF, but I'm sure I won't get around to putting anything up until I get back.

Rob, the grid definitely feels manageable. I particularly like the pro/con layout, as well as the very quick action of the scrolling/clicking to reveal more info.

And the blogroll keeps rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin' rollin'

Admit it. You know you're looking for an excuse to build an iPhone app.

You've got 20 days.

And then I can just rely on Darren and his iPhone to fulfill this function. Everybody wins!

I like it. But what will happen to Errata and the prize for the Metropolis, Nevada puzzle that I'm still trying to work out?

August 21, 2008, 10:36 PM

Errata will probably continue, although I imagine most of my energy will be over there. The prize has gone unclaimed since 2003. I'm really quite disappointed in the contestants.
