Sorry for the lateness of this morning’s post; a server migration kneecapped my access to the site. But everything seems to be up and running now.
Here’s something to ponder, though: Which seismic cultural event is likely to get more traction this week? Is it …
… Variety’s decision to lay off veteran film critic Todd McCarthy and most of its other full-time critics and switch to cheaper/younger/less opinionated freelancers?
… Corey Haim’s sudden death at age 38?
… Armond White getting critic-blocked by Noah Baumbach’s people when he wants to see “Greenberg”?
… or the protests over Farrah Fawcett’s absence from the Oscar death reel?
Sadly, my money’s on l’affaire Farrah. Which carries even less importance than the Armond White thing, which is about as insignificant as you can get.
