Activity has continued over on the Facebook page, but things have been pretty quiet over here on rushmoreacademy.com.
Do people still visit websites?
I started the Rushmore Academy in 2000 as a shrine to Wes’ second film Rushmore (you can use the Wayback Machine to see what that looked like). Rushmore sparked my interest in film. Like, the good stuff. The Rushmore Academy started to expand as a repository to all things Wes with the release of The Royal Tenenbaums. We have, to varying degrees, covered the release of every film since then. I am still here, no longer a college student… almost middle-aged. With kids, silver hairs budding out of the sides of my head, a little exhausted but happy. But maybe we could use some folks with a bit more spark and vitality?
So if you are interested in writing and contributing here on the site or over on the Facebook page, send me some ideas… your interest in the site and Wes Anderson… maybe a writing sample…. a glossy… your curriculum vitae?
