The NonModern experiment had another year with growing success. I again had fun sharing thoughts and maintaining a habit of thinking and writing about culture, and the things going on around me. After three plus years it is a habit that is hopefully beneficial to a few people.
Coming up in 2011: More thoughts on film with reviews and critiques of 2010 movies and other years as well as continued lists by year and decade. Further exploration of the western genre, and finally a look at some of the more influential German films. Hopefully, an increase in reviews and thoughts on books. Reflections on television shows will continue including a year-long series of entries on each season of Buffy tying in with a major re-watch occurring online next year here. Further entries are coming taking us through Ephesians and Philippians, then more Paul. On a personal level, I plan on reviewing my Hebrew and doing more with it, but I don’t know if that will make its way onto the blog. There is also an idea I am toying around with concerning German idioms.
Thanks for reading and keep visiting! As always, feel free to comment!
