Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

sunshine-bloggerBig thanks to the lovely Summer at Serendipitous Anachronisms for nominating MMC! for a Sunshine Blogger Award! Serendipitous Anachronisms not only boasts a truly wonderful title and a great banner image, but provides a consistently engaging one-two punch of philosophical deconstruction and pop culture enthusiasm. Needless to say, MMC! is proud to receive this nomination from the blogathon powerhouses that are Summer Reeves and Serendipitous Anachronisms!  Thanks!

Now, lets answer Summer’s questions!

Approved!

silverscreenings-sealBig thanks to Ruth at Silver Screenings for her kind words about MMC! and for bestowing on this little corner of the digital world her 1st edition Seal of Approval! Silver Screenings sets a high bar for blogging and so we’re always pleased to get a passing grade from Ruth.

With our focus on the National Film Board of Canada concluded, MMC! now returns to regular broadcasting.  Within a week or so, we hope to post our next Arrow Video proposal, this time promoting an underappreciated example of late-’80s Italian horror.  See you then!

Liebster II: The Liebstering

liebster2Big thanks to Berto for nominating MMC! for its second Liebster Award! Berto’s 24 Masterpieces Per Second: A Blog About Film Appreciation is an insightful blog providing interpretations and analyses about a wide variety of filmic subjects, engaging in the sort of passionate and invested discussions that do justice to the term “critic” and make film reviewing a meritorious effort.

(Note: Berto has recently stopped writing reviews, and while I don’t necessarily agree with the reasons for doing so, I definitely admire the thought, accountability, and self-criticism that went into that choice. If Berto has a change of heart on this point, I’ll be happy to read those reviews!)

Liebster rules, once again, are:

  1. Thank the blogger(s) that nominated you;
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you;
  3. Nominate up to 11 bloggers of your own choosing (blogs should have fewer than 200 followers);
  4. Let the nominees know (in a comment) of their nomination;
  5. Give them 11 questions of their own.

So, on to Berto’s questions:

A Liebster of My Own!

liebster2Big thanks to Blogferatu for the Liebster Award nomination!  This is MMC!‘s first and I’m really glad it came from Blogferatu who writes a great horror-themed blog and whose bio suggests a kindred spirit.  I too love tattoos (just not on me) and the idea of being a Horror Host (or any kind of movie host for that matter – watch you back Robert Osborne!).

A Liebster Award is essentially a friendly chain letter/questionnaire shared between small or newer blogs to provide encouragement, raise their respective profiles, and help everyone get to know each other a little better.  MMC! isn’t new but it is small, and I’m happy to participate and thankful of the nomination.  Blogferatu has been kind enough to post some rules for Liebster Award nominations, which are:

  1. Thank the blogger(s) that nominated you;
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you;
  3. Nominate up to 11 bloggers of your own choosing (blogs should have fewer than 200 followers);
  4. Let the nominees know (in a comment) of their nomination;
  5. Give them 11 questions of their own.

That sounds reasonable enough to me, and so I’ll proceed accordingly.
