I would like to invite anyone and everyone to participate in my second annual Labor Day blogathon running September 6 - 12. Last year's De Palma Blogathon was such a resounding success, I hope to make this an annual tradition, a transition from the commercial summer movie season into the start of the (hopefully) art-centered fall season. This year's featured director is David Cronenberg. The Canadian auteur has evolved quite a bit from his early days pioneering the "body horror" subgenre to become a recognized auteur focused more on the turmoil within.
Like last year, I would like to make the blog a destination in order to give every submission a democratic opportunity to be read. I'd be happy to publish links to any previously published Cronenberg posts. But if you write a new piece, I hope you'll allow me to publish it here first before you cross post it on your own site. Send your contributions here, please.
I am happy to accept entries from anyone. Unfortunately, I don't have e-mails for everyone whose blog I read. So in the interest of getting the word out, if you choose not to submit a piece, I request that you please help me promote this event at your own respective sites.
At top and below are JPEGs to help you in marketing this. Please link any JPEG you display to this post.
I hope to have all of you participate in some way.
