The Move

I have now moved from Blogspot to WordPress. I guess if you’re here and reading this, you’ve figured that out already. I hope the switch is the right one. I like the new look, and I hope you do, too. Please update your links to take account of this change. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I look forward to maintaining this blog in its new home.

  1. Good move – WordPress is a much tidier format. I am getting slight deja vu though, as this place now reminds me of David Cairns’ magnificent Shadowplay:

    I’m a little perturbed by the new architecture on campus – what is the building for (the rumoured shopping centre, perhaps)? There’s isn’t exactly much space between the Great Hall and Northcott, so surely a new building wouldn’t fit as snugly as the illustration suggests.

    On a completely unrelated note, are you familiar with (Austrian avant-garde filmmaker) Peter Tscherkassky? A new discovery for me, by way of Adrian Martin at the Reading conference. His films – particularly the riffs on Sidney J. Furie’s utterly unhinged ‘The Entity’ (1981) – are incredible, and his website compiles a host of texts and info:

    Check out Furie’s ‘The Entity’ (1981) back-to-back with Tscherkassky’s re-interpretations ‘Outer Space’ (1999) and ‘Dream Work’ (2001) – a remarkable experience, and one I think you’d enjoy immensely. A DVD is available from the amazing artist’s label Index, and I (now) have a copy. You’ll love it.

  2. You’re right. This does look a bit like Shadowplay! It’s because there are a limited number of templates on the site, and it might take me a while to really individuate this thing.

    Just running to my meeting – I’ve signed your form, by the way. You can collect it any time.

    Maybe the message facility here is not the place for me to put that kind of information! I’ll use regular e-mail next time. See you soon…
