regarding the above a parallel – while not excusable, it's more understandable that, until recently, a critic could be ignorant of experimental film and its history, since seeing the films ...

It's actually been extended to Apr 11, though that doesn't seem to be listed on their site.
It's a particularly interesting question for Super-8, because that medium has a long history of being exhibited on video instead of on its original film, for many reasons. Super-8 filmmakers ...

OK, well we could parse intentionality all day long about what Guthrie meant (unless he chimes in here himself) but MY take on it is offline artwork in dialog with ...

Hey Tom

I'm unclear on how giving a name to something (or attempting to do so) constitutes a form of flattery in and of itself – isolating and naming a ...

Please do explain your point, unless you are merely representing trollkind. I'm curious–is it a critique of the game?

Johnson, fyi, does not make this claim wholesale for all TV and videogames. In fact, his argument is that both TV and videogames have been getting "better" (for him, more ...

…and if you're referring to Burnham's System Esthetics

Then sure, I could have mentioned this, but I'm not convinced invoking ...

Johnson's book assumes that the kinds of problem-solving cognitive activity in videogames and some television (24, et al) is a form of mental exercise, and therefore makes the brain "stronger ...

Paul: for sure, my statement about the gallery world was very much meant to refer to here in the US where I am, as is Tom. Sorry, should have clarified ...
