Boy oh boy, have I been M.I.A.
Hi Everyone! Welcome back to my blog. No better way to celebrate its up coming seventh anniversary than with you all joining me here. Thank You!!
About my disappearance…what can I say, Life got in the way of my life. Politics, COVID
( no I didn’t have it ), quarantining, vaccinations ( I’m booster’d up as well ), motorcycling, traveling to visit family and TCMFF-friends. Also, just not having the will to write. If you’ve read my blog these last couple months and I have not answered any of your comments to my posts, I’ll do so now.
What am I doing here now? Well, I’ll tell you. I wrote a little something about “PSYCHO” on my FaceBook page a few weeks ago and among the responses to my post, these two came from my sister and my friend, which gave me the germ of an idea:
So I’m here to ask you, are there any movies you’ve seen a bunch of times? Five…ten…umpteen times? It’s a movie you watch any time it comes on tv, even if you have the DVD? Is there a film you’re always in the mood for more than others? Easy…familiar… comforting to watch?
If there are, I’d humbly like to invite you tell the world about ‘em here:
Now that Thanksgiving has just ended ( including Black Friday & Cyber Monday ) I guess we’re in full-blown commercial holiday season mode. I just passed a house here in Brooklyn with their decorations up already ( Con Edison’s favorite time of the year ).
If you have a moment to give it a think after the turkey, Mac & cheese and sweet potato pie have settled ’round your tummy, please join my blogathon and submit the title to me, of your UMPTEENTH selection, by Christmas Eve. You can do that here in the Comments-section below. This way I’ll have plenty of time to create a banner for you which will appear in my blogathon directory page.
The link to your blog essay will be published on the anniversary of my own blog which shares a birthday with Cary Grant << January 18th >> as well as my own birthday. The due date for essay submissions is January 16th. I’ll be away from my computer for a bit after that.
Many of you are old pros at this, but for anyone new joining the fun, if you please, could your essay include my “lovely” home-made banner ( see above ). Please be sure to include this link: https://cinemavensessaysfromthecouch.wordpress.com/2022/01/18/for-the-umpteenth-time-blogathon/ in your essay as well, as this link ( made live January 18th ) will be helpful to take people to the directory of all your essays for my blogathon. You all have written about a boatload of movies as bloggers. You might’ve even written about this special film before. In order to avoid something you’ve already published, perhaps for this new blogathon you can find a new slant about that movie.
Hope you’ll be interested in joining me here…this should be a fun topic not an Academic thesis, and I look forward to reading your work. ThanxXx!!
