10 for ’10: Factoids

27 12 2010

Catch up with the idea behind this series here.

If you read this site frequently, you can’t help but notice the random factoids since I publish them every day.  It’s a labor of love, summoning up some kind of opinion or awkward experience to keep the series running on a daily basis.  But nonetheless, I love it and the factoids help keep me current on all my movie knowledge.

So here’s to ten of my favorite factoids that I published in 2010!  (I only put little descriptions underneath in the hopes that you go and read them!)

Random Factoid #252
(where I get a little unruly in the theater)

Random Factoid #322
(where I get teared up)

Random Factoid #358
(where I need a neck massage)

Random Factoid #365
(where I make a yummy cake)

Random Factoid #376
(where I rip a dumb article to pieces)

Random Factoid #388
(where I talk about the rain)

Random Factoid #431
(where I uncover a latent pet peeve)

Random Factoid #449
(where I refute yet another stupid article)

Random Factoid #484
(where I describe an awkward theater experience)

Random Factoid #496
(where I get a compliment from the filmmaker I talk about!)





10 for ’10: Movie Bloggers

25 12 2010

Catch up with the idea behind this series here.

Merry Christmas to all!  As I wrap up on this great day, I wanted to give thanks and celebrate all the many bloggers who have made the continued success (as I perceive it) of this blog.  So hopefully these ten sites that inspired me all year long like this last-minute gift under tree!  And for those of you looking for an extra gift, look here at these amazing sites (presented in alphabetical order)!

Anomalous Material

…because I’m consistently amazed by how well you manage to round up and unite the movie blogging community.  Bravo, take a bow.

Blog Cabins

…because I still have no idea how you do it all.

Central Florida Film Critic

…because I love reading someone with a totally different viewpoint than I have.  As Nietzsche wrote, “The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently,” and I sure hold your views in high esteem.

Cut the Crap Movie Reviews

…because reading your reviews is like talking to that endlessly witty friend.  After reading just one review, I felt like I knew you.

The Dark of the Matinee

…because I feel smarter every time I read your blog.  So well organized and so well-written, a visit to your site is like a shot of envy.

Four of Them

…because you comment so much on my site that I have to go visit your site all the time.  But not to sound obliged, I enjoy the variety of content and your boldness in not following any rhythm or pattern but your own.

The List

…because every post of yours is so gosh darned hilarious that I check you first when I need any sort of comedic inspiration for anything I write.

M. Carter at the Movies

…because you have the boldness to put down what you love to do what you have to do.  I admire you so much for having your priorities in line, and if I am ever in your position, I hope I can handle myself with your grace.  I’m excited that you are back and can’t wait until you get the motor running full speed ahead once more.

Nevermind Pop Film

…because you like my posts!  Thank you for adopting the new technology … perhaps others will follow your lead.  Meanwhile, on your site, I get so much personality and so much variety.

Paragraph Film Reviews

…because I admire your conciseness and wish I could emulate you more often, as I tend to get awfully verbose at times.

Thanks to everyone who writes, reads, or comments!  Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
