How I Spent My Summer Vacation

image

Patton Oswalt recently announced that he is taking a short-term twitter vacation, and I have to admit, it’s an attractive idea. Part of this is due to simple exhaustion – I’ve taken on two additional twitter accounts beyond my own in the past six months, both work-related, and the gynecologist problem applies (re: I just don’t find them as interesting any more). In addition, spreading social thinking across this many outlets has watered down my own engagement across the board, a situation not helped by the fact that while I’m having increasing trouble pumping content into my regular streams, my two joke accounts seem to be all I can think of these days. The balance feels off. And as I won’t be walking away from my professional commitments anytime soon, it might be a good time to focus on them exclusively, and leave the personal accounts (and the joke accounts) fallow for the summer months.

Tederick: On Ebertfest

vasta:

Here is what I know: my friends Matt and Matt are at Ebertfest this year. It is not their first time going, and it will certainly not be their last. I also know that Matt and Matt are not just film fans, or even just the best film commentators that I know, but that they are also among the best observers of the human condition that I have come across.

All that to say: Matt Brown has been writing short recollections from Ebertfest each day, and they are more than just a recap of film, or of the events around this wonderful film festival. They are about emotion, interaction, and humanity. They are the kind of “live-blogging” that blogging aspires to be.

You should read them. And then read more of what Matt writes, because he inspires me every day.

Cheers to Sameer for the kind words, especially because his blogging has been such an enormous inspiration to me over the years.
