Terry Gilliam

Fascinating interview (in Salon) with one of our quirkiest filmmakers.

Also worth watching--especially the Gilliamesque animation that preceeds the interview--is this from The Colbert Report.

"Mad Men" Conference

One of the greatest series in the history of television, AMC's Mad Men, will end its seven season run this spring.

A year from now a major symposium on the show will be hosted by Fordham University in New York.

Dr. Jane Marcellus, MTSU media scholar (Journalism), and I originated the idea for the conference and will collaborate with Dr. Gary Edgerton of Butler University and Drs. Brian Rose and Jacqueline Reich at Fordham in planning and running the conference, tentatively planned for September 17-19, 2015.
