The dream of every young indie filmmaker came true for the directors of THE SIGNAL. Longtime local filmmakers David Bruckner, Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry banded together for a horror flick, told in three chapters, about a mysterious transmission that turns people into murderous lunatics. The Signal was accepted at the Sundance Film Festival, where it picked up a national distribution deal from ThinkFilm, which will release it to local theaters this fall. The initial success of The Signal is like a real-life version of Rocky (or maybe Rocky II, because Rocky lost in the first one). less...

Mac Thomason started his BRAVES JOURNAL blog in 1998 before he even knew what a blog was. A librarian by trade, Thomason started out writing about all of Atlanta’s sports teams, but quickly settled on his favorite: the Braves. Thomason’s observations on all things Braves are often funny and usually insightful. And his rants can be provocative, such as his rebuke to Slate.com when the web magazine framed Hank Aaron as a slow-and-steady “good player,” as opposed to a great one. The blog has become a gathering spot for hardcore Braves fans, and it’s not unusual to see Thomason receive 300-plus comments on a single post where fans critique every move Bobby Cox and John Schuerholz make … and didn’t make.

There were, at press time, about 14.9 jillion gazillion blogs on the Internet, most of them indulgences in mental masturbation. One that is not is www.extremecraft.com, the creation of local artist and graphic designer Garth Johnson. Begun as a way to highlight cool examples of craft, both low-brow and high, the blog has become a forum for Johnson’s irreverent and literate approach to art and art criticism. In March, he highlighted a taxidermist who will turn the fur of your departed pet into a pillow. Remarked Johnson: “I wonder what she could do for my goldfish.” But it’s his occasional lapses into the profane that keep the blog fresh. To wit: “Ceramics Monthly magazine can suck my nuts.”

You don’t have to be Jewish to appreciate ATLANTA JEWISH LIFE. The magazine, which first published in the spring of 2001, comes out every other month and features short, sharply written articles on topics ranging from a Jewish girl’s journey to learn more about her infamous mobster uncle to a profile on Jewish comedian (and former Atlantan) David Cross. Editor Benyamin Cohen hasn’t missed a beat as he’s vested the publication with a young, hip sensibility. The July-August issue’s cover, “Jewish Radio Mafia: A Photo Essay,” is a brilliant, “Sopranos”-esque photo lineup of 12 of Atlanta’s Jewish radio personalities, including 99X’s Jimmy Baron and NPR’s Lois Reitzes.

It won't help you get a job, tell you what bands are playing this weekend or find you a mortgage company, but HOMESTARRUNNER.COM might make you laugh. And, if you're a local webmaster, its mastery of Flash animation will turn you green with envy. Homestar Runner is the eponymous protagonist in a series of online cartoons created by brothers Matt and Mike Chapman and populated by a collection of simple-minded, Pokemon-meets-SpongeBob characters with names like Strong Bad, Marzipan and Poopsmith. Although it's remained largely underground (until a recent "New York Times" profile, that is) homestarrunner.com has built a national word-of-mouth following that includes a few well-known indie musicians. One such fan, Lou Barlow of Sebadoh, hired the brothers to create a Folk Implosion video simply on the strength of their online doodling. "www.homestarrunner.com" less...
