[67] CC2K matters, Peckham Literary Festival, etc.

Bit of cleaning up necessary.


My CC2K 'Morning Roundup' column for this week went up this morning, here are the details:

This morning we have tidbits from the world of movies and theatre, including new projects from Steven Soderbergh, Hideo Nakata and Gurinder Chadha. Brew that coffee, open those curtains and click right here. It's the morning roundup!

It seemed to be a relatively slow news day in the entertainment world, probably due to the fallout from the US elections. Still, read the full post here.


In other CC2K matters, my recently-blogged Smash Bros Brawl review/essay has been published, check it out here if you didn't catch it last week.


In the wider world, I'm very much looking forward to the Peckham Literary Festival, which is taking place pretty much on my doorstep from 17th to 23rd November. It is being hosted by two lovely little stores, the Persian emporium Persepolis (on Peckham High St) and the tiny, but welcoming bookshop Review (Bellenden Road).

There's an impressive array of free events going on. I'm probably going to attend the Open Mic Poetry Evening featuring John Clarke (read a Londonist interview with him here) on the 19th at Persepolis, and the talk given by Glen Baxter (wiki) the night after at the same venue.

For more information, check out the festival's website here.


I still have a long list of unfinished, semi-finished or false-started articles, which I hope to get around to nailing in the next few days. You'll be the first to hear, I promise.
