Martin Weller has been making the parallel between movie stars and edubloggers, and while some folks have commented with the usual concerns about thinking through blogging in terms of stardom and fame—more of the self-effacing edtech pandering that drives me crazy—I love this exercise. My only issue is that Martin does himself a great disservice by likening himself to that hack Ben Affleck, he’s more a Sean Penn in my mind. So, while I’d like to think of myself as a character actor along the lines of the inimitable Harry Dean Stanton, I think the bava comes much closer to the late, great Robert Mitchum. Now, some of you may not know (or remember) how crazy and unlikable Mitchum was, so before rolling over on this one, try warming up to the comparison after watching the following clip from an interview in which he responds to the question “Should we pull out of Viet Nam?”
That’s right baby, the bava is back from New York and in full effect. Kill ’em all!!
