And that, as they say, is that!

Thu Sep 12, 2013 9:13 pm

Two weeks shy of three years work and the PhD thesis has been submitted. Hurrah!!!!

What this means, of course, is that I will now have much more time to argue with people on FECC and elsewhere - and perhaps I'll finally get that paper written on Elvis and his fans. ;)

No grades at PhD. Just a pass or fail. Which is a bit lame after 300 pages of work when you come to think of it!

Upon receiving your "P," you will need to consider changing your login to Dr. Peter ...

I may be the senior Phud. here. Though not yet a senior citizen, although I feel that way sometimes.

Welcome to the club, pmp. (Your real name is on your blog. So, insert here.)

Congratulations!

It is a Big Fu(dg)ing Deal!

Looking forward to it. Not about arguing, I mean the paper about Elvis and his fans :lol:
Congrats to you!

Aw, well, the scrapping and wrastlin' is tradition! ;) When they stop that, I'll get worried!

His paper only includes comments (on the Elvis movies) BEFORE he announced the paper, and everyone could opt out. I'm in!

P.S. -- pmp, what about recent members who didn't know about it?

Before I start work I shall probably make the announcement again. The paper in question was due to be written last spring (2011), but then dad passed away, and family issues took over from writing side projects (other than the novel). I'm running a course on non-Hollywood cinema this semester, but other than that I'm a free agent for a few months and so hopefully can finally get around to writing the papers I have had planned for a while.

Meanwhile thanks to all for the congrats! ;)
