1 Year a Blogger. The (Not So) Extraordinary True Story of an Amateur Film Blogger.

1 year a blogger
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).  Continue reading

BW’s List of Favorite WordPress Blogs & Friendly Blogging Advice

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

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg

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

Joe Dante will NOT direct Quentin Tarantino in Roger Corman Biopic

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.
