Weekly link roundup – Oct. 7-13


I had a flurry of creativity Thursday night after seeing the Internet’s reactions to the vice-presidential debate, and I slapped together a folk song called “Big Joe Biden” that explores the mythical figure’s larger-than-life persona. You can listen to it at SoundCloud.

Let me also reiterate my humble plea from last week that you be sure to click the links to my reviews and columns that are posted someplace other than EricDSnider.com. I mean, read the ones here, too, but especially read (or at least click on) the ones where the number of page-views matters more. Thanks, pals.

Eric’s Bad Movies: “The Minis” (2007), about four dwarfs who recruit Dennis Rodman to help them win a basketball tournament. Yes, really. [Film.com]

Re-Views: “Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2” (2000), which at the time felt like one of the worst things I’d ever seen. [Film.com]

Snide Remarks: “Going Back to Cali” — In which I attend my high school reunion.

Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider: This week’s episode is super-sized, full of thick, meaty deliciousness. Reviews of “Argo,” “Here Comes the Boom,” “Sinister,” “Seven Psychopaths,” and “The Paperboy,” plus Question of the Week, a round of Pitch Me, and other malarkey. [MovieBS]
