September tends to be a quiet month on this site. Edinburgh's just finished, the London Film Festival won't kick off till mid-October: time for a few weeks of comparatively restrained internet activity. Those batteries need to be recharged sometimes.
This September, however, I've got plans for a series of posts that won't require too much strain on the brain, yours or mine. And they're all a result of this email from YouTube, dated August 31st.
