Sorry for the Absence of Posts!

I’ve suddenly become really busy in the past few weeks and feel a bit guilty about the sharp drop off of posts. It’s not for lack of things to write about. I’ve planned a post about Frank Capra, big band music, the 1968 The Planet of the Apes, and Citizen Kane. I just haven’t had time to write them. I think they’re going to trickle out a bit slowly. Come early September, instead of the three posts a week I used to write, I’m going to write two…but they should at least be regularly released.

I just wanted everyone to know that although my posts may be a bit spotty in the next few weeks, I am not abandoning writing!

In lieu of real posts, I thought I would share this video. It is from Down Argentine Way with the Nicholas Brothers, who seemed to combine in the most perfect way class with acrobatics and tap dancing.
