So tomorrow the Strange Bedfellows blogging project begins in earnest, and by some cosmic mishap I’m a part of it. You can get the proper gist of it here, but to summarise it for the lazy among you it’s about “the relationship between creativity and analysis in an age of austerity”, which I’ve essentially taken to mean that I can just talk about how crap the Star Wars prequels were and then lay out my plan for Episodes 7, 8 & 9.
You all made that leap too, right?
Anyway, I met a few of my fellow bloggers t’other night. I’d known one of the co-ordinators previously, but no-one else (…well, apparently I’d been introduced to another of them while inebriated, but neither of us remembered so it was amiably awkward).
It was fun to meet people who knew a lot about things that I didn’t know about. But also terrifying because they were all much smarter than me (most are doing PhDs) and knew a lot about things that I didn’t know about. Good thing they’re all lovely or I’d be crying into a pillow right now.
Regardless, I was assured that the content doesn’t have to be incredibly lofty or reference-heavy; it just has to be there. A post once a fortnight is required of the ten-strong blogging team so it’ll be chock-full of content.
Oh, and interesting. Interesting would help. I’m sure I can pull something like that from somewhere. Surely. Probably. Maybe.
Like I said, it all kicks off tomorrow! Check out the site frequently and I’m sure there’ll be something for you.
