Archive for January, 2010

Just a quick story update. The King would have hit the three-quarter century mark last Friday, so Eli Ellison and I celebrated with – what else? – a list: King of the Road: Five Great Elvis Travel Movies. It was a lot of fun to put together.

I followed that one up on Monday with an interview with Susan Van Allen, the author of “100 Places in Italy Every Woman Should Go.”

It’s been a busy holiday season – in addition to eating all the chocolate, cheese and clementines I could get my paws on, I’ve been neck-deep in the hallowed media tradition of the year-end list(s). We had a raft of 2009 send-off content on World Hum:

The Best Travel Books of 2009
World Hum’s 2009 Travelers of the Year: Travel Bloggers
World Hum’s 21 Most Read Features of 2009 (Check me out at #19 and #20)
R.I.P. 2009: From Mercedes Sosa to Frank McCourt
The Best Travel Videos of 2009 (Some really great stuff in this one!)

I also pulled together this selection of TSA-related tweets in the wake of the attempted Christmas undie-bombing:

Seven Great Tweets About the New TSA Regulations

The Big Picture’s Top Ten Films of 2009
Dana Stevens: The Best Movies of the Year and the Decade
It Takes a Hero: The 20 Best Films of the Decade

Maybe I’ll get around to posting something about my favourite flicks of the year/decade later this weekend. Maybe I’ll even find time to make some New Year’s resolutions… (Resolution #1: Procrastinate less.)

In the meantime, Happy New Year! Here’s to 2010.
