This is (f)Artsy. It’s pretty self-explanatory, but we’re going to explain anyway.

Hey y’all, how’ve you been? We’ve missed you.

Welcome to The Sun’s Arts and Entertainment Blog, which we have oh-so-cleverly titled (f)Artsy, out of both (what we hope is) a healthy ability to laugh at our own pretensions (listen to us, telling you what you should and shouldn’t like in the art/entertainment world!) and our humor that resembles that of pre-adolescent boys, which means farting is funny.

We’re your hosts, Julie Block and Peter Finocchiaro, with our co-host Sammy Perlmutter. We’ll be blogging this summer (and throughout the year) about the art and entertainment world. You’ll also meet our guest stars — our staff of intelligent, funny and overly-opinionated writers, who will be helping us in letting you know who and what we think are both cool and sucky in music, television, books, theatre, food, fashion and general entertainment. This summer, we’ll go to festivals — everything from the LA Film Festival to Lollapalooza — and check out new albums, bands and movies, review summer television and hopefully not waste your time in the process.

As always, if you have any questions/complaints/concerns, or just want to tell Peter and Julie you find them freakishly sexy, email us: arts@cornellsun.com.

And here you thought you had gotten rid of us for the summer.
