And so the Roundtable begins...

Some of you (the highly observant ones at least) may have noticed a new addition to my sidebar. The Roundtable. What is the roundtable, you might ask? Well Donny B gave me the hook up to an idea that RW Spryszak had: To pay homage to the creative clash of artistic minds (Dorothy Parker being one of the most notable attendees) that came to meet at the Algonquin Hotel in order to pick each other's brains, pick at each other's food and probably swill down a few dirty martinis.

So while distance and responsibilities of the real world do not permit us to pay homage by physically meeting up for a boozy artsy-fartsy chat everyday, we will be raising our goblet of creative juices to the Algonquin gang the blogger way. Each Thursday of the week, a member of the Roundtable will write a post. We shall gently nudge you over to the post in question and all hash out our ideas, thoughts, musings, critiques etc. in the comment section of the "writer of the week's" site. Want to add your two cents? Please do - it is encouraged. Want to pull up a permanent seat at our Roundtable? Have your people call our people - we'll discuss.

And the first Roundtable discussion is of course by the Godfather himself, RW Spryszak. He discusses the rather lacking acceptance speech of Sir Anthony Hopkins at the Golden Globes. Go on; take a look for yourself...

I have been wanting to do a roundtable a la Dorothy Parker and the Vicious Circle for some time, but didn't have the people to do it with. I'm beyond jealous!

I went to the Algonquin for drinks on Halloween. Can't wait to go back.
