I just posted a li'l something on the SundayArts blog about spoofs of high culture, from Bugs Bunny's Rabbit of Seville to French and Saunders' take on La Dolce Vita. There's linkage galore so make sure you have some time before diving in.
I'm a Brooklyn-based writer/editor specializing in entertainment and outdoors recreation. Past jobs include drama critic/features writer at the New York Post and arts & entertainment editor at Time Out New York.
Why all the French stuff? I am, indeed, from France, and have been living in America for over 25 years.
