Who am I? (Plus, Feedback Wanted!)

Congratulations James, for making it a year, and for the recent milestones you’ve achieved. I think you’re doing so well because you’re writing such good stuff. Simple as that. Peeps: check out this post if you haven’t seen it yet. James is preparing to mark his one-year anniversary of blogging and he is soliciting questions to answer in an upcoming post. I sent him mine already; you have time to send him one yourself.

This is too good to resist.

Diana and Sam should be in the air soon, if they aren’t already. Hopefully, they’ll see this sometime after they land. Congratulations, you two!

I’ve been writing my little heart out for most of the last week, and I don’t have anything for today, but we’ll be up to our usual tricks here this week, possibly with an award nomination or two thrown in.

Saturday Morning Memories: The Winners!

True Classics, one of the best sites on the Web for film lovers, has announced the winners of their 4th Anniversary blogging contest.

True Classics

Before we reveal the trio of winners in our Saturday Morning Memories anniversary contest, we want to extend our thanks once more to all of our readers, but especially to the seven participants in this year’s event. We are so glad each of you took the time to write a piece for us–especially when the caliber of the contributions was so wonderful (and made it very difficult to choose the winners!).

[A quick technical note about the results: Brandie decided to abstain from voting this year, so the winners were chosen solely by Carrie, Nikki, and Sarah through separate, secret ballots.]

Third place, and the winner of a $10 gift card of her choice: Angela from The Hollywood Revue, with her intriguing piece on The Pink Panther cartoon series and its links to silent film appreciation!

“[I]t had never occurred to me that all those Pink Panther cartoons…
