School's Out

I've been so busy and distracted this week that I lost track of the fact that Monday was my last day of regular class meetings this semester. I'll see many of my students one last time at their final exams, but the semester is basically done. As my scattered posts recently might suggest, I've been working (somewhat frantically) on a writing project that I'm pretty excited about. But that's not all that is happening:

More later, but I'm getting a late start this morning. I've very quickly fallen into my summer schedule (waking up around 11 AM, staying up until 3 AM) and I still haven't had my first cup of coffee. Oh, and now that the semester is ending, I need to set up my semi-annual screening of Dazed and Confused, just to celebrate the beginning of summer, you know [entry updated to correct some details].

Update: I'll use this entry as a reminder that Sujewa's Date Number One will be premiering on Saturday, May 13, at the Goeth Institut.

Welcome to the sushi-with-profgrrrl club. :)

Chuck, your Dazed and Confused ritual sounds like great fun. (And I can't wait for the Criterion DVD.)

All that Mekas--lucky for you.
Not sure if you've read his Movie Journal book, but it's a blast. A terrific proto-blog, containing his Voice columns from '59-'71.

Thanks, JM! Profgrrrl mentioned having sushi with you. Sushi is certainly one of my favorite meals, so I really enjoyed it.

Girish, Dazed is a movie that I can watch repeatedly, but I always seem to watch it at least once at the beginning and ending of every school year, usually with a couple of beers. I haven't read Mekas' Movie Journal but have been planning to do so for some time. Maybe seeing the films will motivate me to buy or borrow it.
