JoBlo.com does Cannes

Funny how life works sometimes. Just 6 weeks ago, the Arrow and I were preparing to hit the Cote D'Azur for yet another year of the Cannes Film Festival, but then he got a part in Eric Red's latest film (more on that HERE) and just a month after that, my doctor told me that it might not be a "great idea" for me to travel with my current health problems. Bugh. Double-bugh. Needless to say, we were both severely disappointed (although at least his was for a good reason!), but alas, no use crying over that shit now.

That said, we didn't have any problems getting another JoBlo-er to cover the event this year, and that person is none other than Jenny Karakaya, the ying to our male hormonial yang on the site. Jenny has been kicking it on JoBlo.com for over a year now, with many interviews, set reports as well as coverage of red carpets and most recently, the Tribeca Film Festival, so we have no doubt that she'll continue the consistently kick-arse Cannes coverage that we've been offering on the site since 2004 - 2005 - 2006.

Remember when I got this picture "with" Salma Hayek? Awesome!

As opposed to my Johnny Depp, Salma Hayek and Monica Bellucci fetishes of years past, you might have to wade through some of her own Bono obsessions (yes, he, the Edge and the rest of the Irish crew will be there this year to present their film called U2 3D), but other than that, we should be able to get you her opinions on all of the films presented at the Festival that might interest our audience, including the Coen bros' latest, Tarantino's longer version of DEATH PROOF, Won Kar Wai's first English-language film and many others. The festival starts today and runs until May 27th, so keep JoBlo.com on your dial for all that good fun right here. You can also keep checking coolness out on their official website (and mighty well updated) RIGHT HERE.

PS: It's to note that I am shooting to improve myself by July, so that I can join about 10 other staff-members at this year's San Diego Comic Con. If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere. Oh...that's NY, isn't it? Whatever, you get what I'm saying.
