Opera Jawa

Here’s a beautiful and fascinating new film for Ramayana afficianados: Opera Jawa by Indonesian director Garin Nugroho. It’s currently doing festival rounds and specialty screenings (like the one I attended last night at the Asia Society) but hopefully will gain wider distribution. As a freaky surreal art-house spectacle it’s not really destined for mainstream audiences, but every big city and college town could handle it. If it screens near you, run don’t walk.

What a day!

Today I learned why WordPress creates a whole new domain for installing itself. My wee little lesson involved wiping out everything on my web site for a few hours. Now I’m older, wiser, and willing to accept my new homepage has a “.blog” prefix. I hope you, dear reader, can accept that as well.

In happier news, the archives are up and running, along with the rest of ninapaley.com. And I can already tell that WordPress kicks Blogger’s ass. Big thanks to Ariel, who actually knows how all this works.

Dear readers, please leave a comment if you’re still out there!

Today is the First Day of the Rest of my Blog

Today I switched blogging software: from Blogger to WordPress. My archives – the “old” blog – are moving but we don’t have a directory for them yet; please be patient. Meanwhile, you can still see all the other fine features of ninapaley.com by using the same trusty links on the right.
