- RT @atmostbeautiful: 붓다는 늘 개인 숭배를 막았으며, 제자들의 관심이 자기 자신으로부터 자신이 가르치는 메시지와 방법으로 향하게 하려고 지칠 줄 모르고 노력했다. 인간에 대한 헌신은 의존과 집착 같은 깨닫지 못한 자들의 습관을 부추… 6 minutes ago

- RT @aMoonWatcher: '위대한 침묵'도 마찬가지. SF를 좋아하는데 나이성별은 아무 상관도 없지만, 그렇다고 중장년 남성이 좋아한다는 건 편견이라고 생각해요. https://t.co/5clQWzASo4 1 hour ago
- RT @KiyikKiyik: SF 불모지론은 그게 문젠데, (대체로 올드한) 논지에 맞추려고 멀쩡하게 있는 사례를 없애버리는 것. 있는 독자도 안 보고(SF독자 500명설), 있는 작가도 없는 것으로. 급기야 지우는 부분이 더 커져버림. 1 hour ago
- RT @aMoonWatcher: 알라딘의 구매자 분포를 살펴보면, 우리나라에서 '현대SF'의 주요소비층은 중장년 남성이 아니라 20/30/40대의 여성이라는 건 금방 보여요. 알라딘 SF베스트 20위까지. 시리즈/동일 작품은 하나만. https://… 1 hour ago

Dear Roger It is almost a year since I received the e-mail notifying me of your death, and I and others are still thinking of you while missing you a lot. At the end of last year, many people wondered … Continue reading
In case of some people, you miss them dearly when you are apart from them, but then you remember how unpleasant they can be when you are near them. I do not know much about Tom Dark, whom I met … Continue reading
“So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I’ll see you at the movies.” – from Roger Ebert’s last blog entry “A Leave of Presence”
The last day of Ebertfest finally came, but it was still happy to be get together with others. The last movie of the festival, “Song Sung Blue”, is the documentary about the human spirit. Mike and Claire Sardina, as Lightening and Thunder, had been wonderful performers on the stages. Maybe their acts were not original(Mike sang Neil Diamond songs, and Claire did the songs of Patsy Cline, Blondies, and ABBA), but they were popular with people in Milwaukee and you can see why from their performances in video footage. Even if you don’t have much interest in these songs, they would draw your attentions with the joy of singing. And they were good singers.
Day 4 was for four movies. Due to the lack of sleep, I was in the worst condition, so I didn’t react well to “I Captured the Castle”. But I enjoyed Q & A just like others and I promised myself that I will check this movie again someday even if I can’t write anything about movies for a while. Continue reading
Delirium continued to reign on Day 3 and another “the lamb to the slaughter” situation started for us early in the morning. After saying goodbye to Michael Philips at Breakfast room, I went into Pine Lounge on the 1st floor with my friends. Along with them, I was about to participate in panel discussion titled “The Global Web of Film Lovers”. Thanks to Roger’s blessing and Omer’s deft moderation, we went through well and 70 minutes was shorter than I thought. The video clip is available on here, but I do not want to kill myself by watching it.
I was afraid of Day 2 because I would be on the stage as one of panelists for the first movie of that day, “Munyurangabo”, directed by Issac Chung, Korean-American director from Arkansas. Continue reading
