Time to get sentimental. I try not to blog too much about personal, non-movie related stuff, because let’s face it: Who cares? Plus, it’s also very self-indulgent and possibly annoying. But once a year, I’ll allow myself to talk about me for a moment. Now, if you’re still reading this, you’re most likely one of my few good loyal readers, so: Thank you! I’ve been noticing a small increase of views and visitors on BW, so I’m extra happy today, because it means I’m doing my job and I’m doing it well (also: Google search engine optimization).

Señor Mark Aldrich of The Gad About Town, was kind enough to nominate me for a Liebster Award. What poor Mark didn’t know was that I had decided not to do award related posts anymore. Why? Because LV (Literary Vittles, not Louis Vuitton), had written a very convincing piece about why having a blogroll is more interesting. Also, I’m just very lazy when it comes to writing these acceptance posts. Sorry Mark, but do not despair! I will feature your wonderful blog on the new page I created to permanently promote the blogs I love and follow. Continue reading
This is incredible. I was just nominated for a Liebster Award. If I didn’t know better I would think that Anna at Film Grimoire is in love with me or something. This is the third time she has nominated me for an award. I would say that I’m speechless, but I’m not. I have a lot to say, but first of all: Thank you, Anna! For those of you who don’t know who Anna is: She is a fellow film fanatic, who writes thoughtful reviews and always answers people’s comments, which I think is really cool. She has a boyfriend, so I was just kidding about what I said before, in case you don’t get my weird sense of humor. Continue reading
This reminds me of that time in school where I had to participate in a ski race and my friend came in last (I was second last) and he won 20 CHF (circa $20). Why am I telling you this story? I was just nominated for the I’m Not Featured On Freshly Pressed Award by Film Grimoire. At this point, I didn’t even want to blog about these nominations, because I don’t want to annoy people by constantly patting myself on the back, but the name of the award is just so funny.

Film Grimoire, one of my new favorite film blogs, just nominated me for a Versatile Blogger Award! I am humbled and honored, because as I said I enjoy reading her blog and am a big fan of her logo and page design. Very much recommending her blog and not just because she nominated me, although if you want me to praise your work that always helps. Continue reading
This is incredible! Once again I’m very humbled to announce that this very blog has been nominated for the Blog of the Year Award 2013. I’m even more stoked that once more it’s my blogger amigo Thomas J. Ford of Music & Movies Cafe who nominated me. If you recall he nominated me my very first award ever, The Sunshine Award, not so long ago. This time, since there are no rules against it (that I know of) I’m going to nominate him as well and not just because he thought of me twice, but because I actually truly enjoy reading his blog and he seems like a really nice guy. He’s currently on a Christmas movie marathon. God bless you, Tom! Continue reading

Congratulations to the every blog I nominated on their great work and dedication. As I understand it The Sunshine Award is about blogs that inspire you, and you guys definitely inspire me.
Oh man! Gotta love the internet. People write stuff without checking their facts and before any information is actually confirmed. Today, several websites and blogs reported that Gremlins director Joe Dante was going to make a Biopic about legendary horror b-movie producer Roger Corman, and that Quentin Tarantino himself was cast as the lead. Truth is: Joe Dante is directing a film called The Man with the Kaleidoscope Eye, however his buddy Quentin won’t be in it. Dante set the record straight by simply updating his Facebook status.
