I’d like to thank everyone for reading, liking posts, and following my blog. The response has been better than I could ever have imagined and I deeply appreciate you all.
However, the frequency and pace of posting links here has proven unsustainable for me and I’m rethinking my posting strategy. I’m taking this week off to think about how to best continue this site while also ensuring that I can work on and accomplish other things that are important to me.
This is not goodbye, I’m not breaking up with y’all, it’s just a bit of space for me to rethink this blog and (more importantly) to give me time to write (much overdue) original content on my other two blogs (Flavor & Illumination and Try Best Practices).
Again, don’t panic. I’m just taking this week off.
Have a great weekend, everybody!

Where faith ends, faithfulness begins.
This might be a bullshit distinction, but I’m trying to fill up a much bigger room than just a broom closet of one small tradition.

The fact that audiences are seeing such a varied, nuanced spectrum of black faces isn’t just a matter of poetics, but politics — and the advent of digital filmmaking. For the first hundred years of cinema, when images were captured on celluloid and processed photochemically, disregard for black skin and its subtle shadings was inscribed in the technology itself, from how film-stock emulsions and light meters were calibrated, to the models used as standards for adjusting color and tone.
That embedded racism extended into the aesthetics of the medium itself, which from its very beginnings was predicated on the denigration and erasure of the black body.
