Live Tweet Transcript: Sword of the Valiant

Inspired by the forthcoming A24 film of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight which actually looks fantastic, Carol and Angela, renowned of the Cultural Gutter (and other famous deeds of valour) and me had a cracking good time live tweeting a viewing of the incredibly terrible Sword of the Valiant, much of which I had forgotten since…

Spirits Gather

As the Mummers begin their revels, St George fights the Dragon, or the Galoshins begin the games, we begin a time of reflection for change in the new year. It’s a time for taking stock, making decisions — and who am I kidding? It’s a time for mellow quiet, good food, and peaceful recharging. There…

MAMO: Rome

Good news! Just got word that my presentation ‘A Chieftain Unchosen: Examining the Raven King through Medieval Prophecy’ has been approved for MAMO: The Middle Ages in the Modern World conference, which will take place in Rome in November. Yay! One of my ulterior motives for saying no to other things is to make sure I…

In Search of Medusa

On the town (NYC naturally) with the QoE at the Met, in the park, sharing Amity, and a drink with Katya. More pix on the ‘book.
