I have more than once sent you to Paracinema...The Blog to read my contributed brand of doo doo that the kind folks at Paracinema allow me to splatter from time to time. Moreover, if not for them, there would be no Chuck Norris Ate My Baby to be found, as Paracinema is where I got my start in the blogging world way back in March of this year. Can you imagine a world without Chuck Norris Ate My Baby?! The thought is truly terrifying, I know.
If you didn't know, Paracinema puts out a quarterly independent magazine that covers all types of cult and indie cinema, with articles that are more along the lines of deep analytical essays, not just reviews and previews as found in most genre mags that are out on shelves. Issue 7 is just around the corner and is now available for pre-order, and I must say, it looks like yet another winner in the awesome department! Articles include: 'Deconstructive Feedback: The Cinema of Larry Cohen' by Adam Protextor, 'The Bikinis, Hairspray, and Shattered Ceilings of Bimbo Feminism: Anita Rosenberg’s Modern Girls and Assault of the Killer Bimbos' by Jonathan Plombon and 'Cold Cinema: Emotional Glaciation and Active Spectatorship in Michael Haneke’s Funny Games' by the one and only, James Gracey. What a line-up! Plus, how can you not love that amazing Black Caesar cover art?! Which incidentally, is a movie that I reviewed for Paracinema...The Blog, and can also be found in issue 6...if you’re lucky enough to get a copy as it is now sold out (which in my mind is due to my review!)!
So, in a world where digital media is king, it is always a nice feeling to sit back and read a great magazine made of paper and love - a magazine dedicated to bringing insightful and original thoughts on the films and genres that we all love, and what better way to do so, than with Paracinema Magazine?! Support independent film making and independent print! You can pre-order issue 7 right here and you may wanna act fast, cause this one is gonna scorch right off the shelves!
