Yeah, I’ve been spending all this time I should have been posting making a facebook page for the site. Well, not really. Just the past day or so. The rest of the time I’ve spent being crazy busy and having a standoff with my bitchtastic computer. But I assure you, normal updates are on their way back.

But, for now, just go over to facebook and become a fan. All posts made here will be shared on the facebook page as soon as they’re up, so you regular facebook followers will be able to see if we have an update up or not, and that way you don’t have to check the site every single day, as I’m sure you all do. Wow, that was a really long sentence. If I get rid of some of the capitalization it would look right at home in a Faulkner novel.

Speaking of Faulkner, stay tuned for the new blog I’ll be starting in the next week, Faulkner February. Yeah, that’s basically what it sounds like.


I think that movie blogs, and classic movie blogs in particular, could really use a lot more attention and I really want to help do that in some way. So I’ve decided to (a) look around the web a lot more for great classic film sites and blogs and (b) make a post about them whenever I add them as a link.

So today I have two links to share. They found me, though, and asked to be linked, and after looking at their sites I am more than happy to do so.

Radiation Cinema is even more niche than we are here at Obscure Classics. Mykal Banta writes all about the science fiction B-movies of the 1940s and 1950s. He’s got some amazing and in-depth writeups on movies like I Married a Monster From Outer Space and The Alligator People. The site itself is also pretty damn good looking.

l’eclisse is a more general classic film blog. It’s relatively new, but it already has some very nice content. It seems there’s a lot of attention for Louise Brooks over there, which is pretty awesome. Go visit and give this young blog some love.
