Help Us Help You will soon be undergoing a major redesign. We have our own ideas about what the new site should feature but we'd like your input as well. What features do you like from other sites that we can ste--I mean, borrow. Borrow. We have every intent of returning those features. Please comment below or send your thoughts to We love our viewers and our readers and this site is for you so it should feature what you want.

One things we've already stol--I mean borrowed. Borrowed. We've borrowed the SHARE THIS button which you will now see at the bottom of every post. This will make it easier for you to submit our posts to major news sites and to e-mail our posts to friends. It will be part of our redesign but since we can share it with you now, we figured: why not? Help us help you and we'll help you help us. We'll all help each other. Group hug.

So You Think You Can Dance?

You probably can't. Sorry. It's just not for everyone.

But that doesn't mean you can't still love the art of dance and the Performing Arts Studio at Emory University is offering you a chance to explore that love with Dance for Reel: An Evening of Dance on Camera. There will be body undulation like you've never seen before in places you've never seen before and I'm presuming a lot here of your viewing experience, but even if I am, doesn't mean this won't be an enjoyable presentation!

It's January 31st at 7:30 PM and there's no admission charge! The event is located at

The Performing Arts Studio
1804 North Decatur Road
Emory University

For more information, please call Ann at (404) 727-7266.

You need Withoutabox in your toolbox

I know nothing about film festivals. I know they take loads of effort and tremendous contributions from both filmmakers and programmers. When I spoke to various programmers from other major film fests during last year's Atlanta Film Festival, the depth and complexity of their job so overwhelmed me that I curled up into the fetal position and cried just hearing about it.

Of course, they probably knew about Withoutabox. I'm not even a film festival aficionado and I know that this thing must be a major boon to anyone who seriously works with film festivals, whether as a programmer, filmmaker, audience member, or distributor.

I know nothing about film festivals and I don't know how anyone would be able to work in film festivals without a robust website like this one.

Check it out.
