Nobody’s asked me any questions yet, so me and myself will quiz I:
Q. Hey I, how come you get to use photos from other people’s movies? Aren’t they copyrighted?
A. Yes, they totally are, and if I was trying to sell them on a t-shirt I’d be in trouble. However, fair use allows me to use excerpts of the work for the purposes of criticism. And believe me, I’m plenty critical, so I don’t think they could say I don’t qualify 🙂
Q. Why the obsession with cardboard boxes?
A. Being a creative professional is a constant struggle not to end up living in one. It’s like gallows humor, but without the tree and they hang you by those long knit scarves everyone wears in Rent.
Q. Why just movie reviews? Why not TV shows and celebrity gossip and cake recipies?
A. Because TV shows will never just end already, the lives of celebrities are both uninteresting and none of my business, and I can’t just give out my cake recipes, then how would I make friends??
Q. Why don’t your theatrical reviews come out before the movie?
A. I don’t have a time machine. I actually have to come home, write it up, find the photos, and post it. Maybe you can convince the Studios to arrange advance press screenings at the Empire 10 in Sydney, N.S. Because it’d be me and the guy from the Cape Breton Post in an otherwise empty theater.
Q. Aren’t wind turbines awesome?
