Tuesday's Overlooked Films and/or Other A/V: just a bit overdue...(many more new links, enough for this week)

5 April 2017 will be the 100th anniversary if the birth of Robert Bloch; we hope to see remembrance around the web, and provide access to as much as we can!


















The (once!) weekly assembly of links to blogposts, reviews, essays, podcasts and other items of interest about audio/visual work, usually first-rate and deserving of one's attention but sometimes less so and sometimes deserving of obscurity, up to and including opera, stage drama, conventions, museum exhibits, videogames (and boardgames), and more. Many thanks to those who have continued to post, when they were inspired to one degree or another by the weekly roundelay...

You missed a few of mine, but given the gargantuan post, I forgive you :) Thanks for doing this for us chum!

Oh, I intend to double back in future weeks. There are few who have been "exhausted' after such an interregnum. Thank you.
