I have always loved the threads where we talk about movies and books, and some of our best open threads of long ago were when BGinCHI would toss out a question or a comment about a book or a film, and the thread would be off and running for a good, long time. In that way, I have always kind of thought of BGinCHI as the John Cole of movies and books, who can start a 300-comment thread with a single thought.
So I am happy to announce that BGinCHI has agreed to do a regular weekly guest post on Balloon Juice, where we can all talk about popular culture. Books, films, TV. This is something we can count on once a week, same time, same station, as one more hedge against this soul-sucking political miasma we’re living in.
Who knows, it might help us all remember why we liked each other and started spending so much time here in the first place!
If you are a newer commenter, or a recent lurker, you might not know BG, but you are in for a real treat. This guest post series will be featured every Sunday, starting at 5pm Balloon Juice time. (Also known as eastern time in some circles.)
I’ll let BG tell us more about himself. We are lucky to have him!
