In the heart of an outwardly stodgy & respectful man lies the soul of a Blutarsky. Interesting piece in today's NYT about how films are chosen each year for the Library of Congress National Film Registry. James H. Billington, the librarian of Congress, formerly a distinguished historian @ Princeton talks with affection for "National Lampoon's Animal House", a movie that is included in the National Film Registry alongside "Casablanca", "Citizen Kane", and "Gone with the Wind". So, next time you're caught viewing Otter, Boon, and Flounder or partaking in that classic movie containing songs like "Lick my Love Pump" (Yes, "This is Spinal Tap" is also in the National Film Registry), just say that you are involved with the Classics and tell your critiquer you believe it's time for them to take a "road trip".

This web site, Brit Git, made it on the best of Brit Blog list this previous year. Informative and scathing. Worth a look.
