  2. We want YOUR vote! The polls are now open for the 2010 Arts & Faith Top 100 Films List. Follow this link for voting directions: http://artsandfaith.com/index.php?showtopic=24420&pid=214972&st=60&#entry214972
  3. VOTE NOW! Thank you for all your nominations! The Polls are open and will be open until midnight Sunday February 21st. Votes will be tallied and the final list will be posted on February 25th. To make sure your vote counts towards this list, follow http://www.keysurvey.com/survey/292964/1333/?LQID=1& to our 2010 Arts and Faith Top 100 Voting Poll. You can only vote once. How it works: Every film must be rated 1-5 (1 being the lowest score, 5 being the highest). For those films that you have not seen, vote "Not Seen." We have created an algorithm which balances the ratings of the film against the individual member weights which are calculated as follows: · Members who have posted up to 500 posts will receive a weight of 1 · Members who have posted between 500-1000 posts will receive a weight of 2 · Members who have posted between 1000-2000 posts will receive a weight of 3 · Members who have posted between 2000-3000 will receive a weight of 4 · Members who have posted over 3000 posts will receive a weight of 5 Please Note: You will be asked your Arts and Faith Display Name and email address. Please fill these out; this is will let us know that you have voted and how to calculate weight. It doesn't matter if you're a cinephile or a now-and-then movie-goer - we want YOUR vote.
  4. Thank you for all your nominations! We are a little behind schedule, but voting will begin shortly. Please watch this space.

  6. The Moment Between Skips

    So I’m sitting here in the luscious backyard desert-garden of the cottage we’ve rented in Tucson for the winter...watching birds peck at the bird-feeder and the bright desert sun flicker onto the grapefruits nearly ripe in the bushy tree across the garden. I’m sitting here.... View the full article
  7. Everything All of the Time

    Perhaps above all else, ["Idioteque"] captures the philosophical essence of Radiohead—oblique existentialist lyrics that nonetheless unmistakably suggest confusion, helplessness and menace, wedded to a song structure that.... View the full article
  8. Accept the Mystery

    There’s an envelope full of cash on Larry Gopnik’s desk. He didn’t put it there. But he can guess who did. A student in Larry’s physics class has been begging him for a good grade. This money looks like a bribe. Nevertheless, when Larry goes seeking.... View the full article
  9. In Praise of Quiet Daring

    I’m not a shouter. Oh, I lose my temper or patience from time to time and cry out in exasperation. And a few people can make me so angry that I completely lose it. But no one would describe me as volatile or passionate – at least not on.... View the full article

  11. As Good as Skinny Feels

  15. Arts and Crafts

    Craft time was the second most exciting part of my childhood church’s summer bible school, topped only by what happened next: when we kids rushed outside to where Little Debbie snack cakes were spread across tables in the open-air fellowship area, stuffed the day’s materials into our mothers’ purses, then chased each other....
