Hello everybody. You might’ve noticed that postings have ground to a halt the last two weeks or so. There are reasons. The first being that I’ve just been accepted to do an MA in Gender Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London this coming September. Hooray. I’ve spent the last few weeks searching pretty much high and low for possible means to fund my studies, rent, and my already frugal lifestyle. And worrying a lot. The other thing that’s been hindering my blogging are my swollen gums. They are a pain (literally and otherwise), and so eating, talking, and thought-processing have been rather difficult lately. Hope everybody’s doing a lot better than I am.
I will return blogging shortly with a couple of reviews of films and books (some for Feminist Review):
- Walking the Precipice – Witness to the Rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan by Barbara Bick (2009)
- He Likes Guys – Eight Great Gay Short Films (2009)
- I don’t want to sleep alone, directed by Tsai Ming Liang (2006)
- Nekropolis by Maureen McHugh (2002).
Update: Wisdom tooth eruptions are not nice.
