Hello World, Marc here:
Hope everyone had a good weekend and those state side had a fun fulled 4th of July. I’ve had some thoughts on my mind about events that some of you may really enjoy. That said consider this an open invitation for everyone to participate in the 3 following Blog-A-Thons. Details after the jump…
- First, on July 30th I’m doing something called “Double Feature Theater”. The idea here is that we all get to imagine ourselves as bona fide Theater owners. As such we set up (in one post) our schedule for a week’s worth of Double Features Mo-Su. The criteria is completely up to you to pair the movies be it actors, directors, a common theme, original/remake, you name it. Nothing is wrong and everything goes as it’s your theater. Start your post beginning what you’d show on Monday, a sentence or two of why or how they’re related and so on for the rest of your fictitious week. Only change is that on Sunday make it a Triple Feature. Be as creative or simple as you want. Just remember this is one post, not a weeks worth of posts.
- Next, August 27th, I’m doing something called “Cool Off With The Classics”. This is essentially a Top 10 list of oldies but goldies; only catch here is that they have to be in black and white but they can be American, foreign, Criterion films etc. Try to stick to the 30s 40s and 50s (e.g. don’t pick Clerks just because it’s black and white:P). Just a fun list of classic films you’d watch to “beat the heat”. Think of the ones you love or imagine the ones you’d watch visiting your grandparents or if you were channel surfing and landed on TMC (Turner Classic Movies)… Again 1 to 2 sentences of why you like it, maybe memories you have of it and that’s it. Anything goes as long as it’s black and white.
- Finally, something off the wall but goofy fun I think. On OCTOBER 1st, I’ll feature “The R-Rated Lunch Box”. Since kids should all be back to school by then, it’s kind of a throwback goof on the lunchboxes we went to school with. You know, the plastic (or metal) ones that had the Thermos inside. Well instead of G.I. Joe, Care Bears, Voltron etc I’m propose we try to think of just 5 R-Rated movies that would be the most outlandish to put on the side of a lunch box. Something like The Human Centipede for example. Now I don’t know how this’ll turn out or if anyone is even interested, but for those of you who are I’m prepared to do a hefty amount of Photoshop to pull this all off. Just send me your 5 titles and I’ll put them all on lunch boxes and send the pictures right back to you for your post.
It’s a triple dose of blog-a-thons this Summer but something I think some you you will enjoy. Let me know if anyone is interested in any or all and I’ll keep you appraised of updates as well as banners. Feel free to spread the word to any of your friends or cineblogging buddies who might be interested in participating. Looking forward to having any and all on board for these!!
