Remember the book/movie Julie & Julia? New Yorker, Julie Powell cooked her way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking (vol 1) in a year, and blogged about her experiences. She called it The Julie & Julia Project, the blog was entertaining and became pretty popular. You can read it here. It’s an old form of blogging, to get to the next entry, you have to click on the calendar on the right – look for the dates in blue. Be forewarned, there is plenty of swearing to go around.
Julie Powell’s blog turned into a book and ultimately turned into an award-nominated film by Nora Ephron: Julie & Julia on IMDB
Well, things have come full circle. Now a college student, Lawrence Dal, has decided to watch the movie Julie & Julia every day for a year and blog about the experience. Here is his blog: The Lawrence/Julie & Julia Project Again, plenty of swearing and sexual innuendo but funny, and I suspect harrowing before it’s all over.
I liked the book, Julie & Julia, and I enjoyed the film, but I certainly couldn’t watch it daily for a year.
Good luck Lawrence. I’ll be cheering you on and reading about your brave endeavors. Thanks too, to The Huffington Post for sharing some sites worth wasting time on.
