Blog Events

The blogging events that I've taken part in and/or hosted! Events such as these bring the blogging community together to write about some specific topic or muse on some broad idea. Check them out.

Desert Island DVDs: Andy from Fandango Groovers brought a whole bunch of us together to deliver our respective lists of the eight films that we would take should we be stranded on a desert island. This event won the Lammy for Best Blog-A-Thon/Meme!

Top 27 Movies That Made Going to the Movies Suck: Mike Lippert over at You Talking To Me? got a bunch of us together to write about the bad influences that influential films have had on our movie going experience. It got a lot of press, and was actually followed by one, Roger Ebert! Makes me glad I quoted him in my post.

Groovers and Mobsters Present: The Final Frontier: A monthly thing over at Movie Mobsters, Heather and Andy bring a few writers in to write about their favorite genre films. This particular one focused on sci-fi films set in space. I wrote about the most obscure one. I was proud of that!

Spreading the JGL Love: A Blog-a-Thon of my own making! I blasted through all the quintessential Joseph Gordon-Levitt movies, and asked other people to contribute as well. For my first time hosting a blog-a-thon such as this, the turnout was incredible! I'm definitely doing something like this again in the future!

30 dAyS oF cRaZy: The good man Dylan "Fletch" Fields over at Blog Cabins hosted this one, in which a bunch of us got together to shoot the shit about the weirdest, most insane, most trippy of films! Submissions include Apocalypse Now, The Shining, and my entry, Se7en!

Groovers and Mobsters Present: Horror: To quote Mean Girls, "Halloween is the only time a girl can dress like a total slut, and no one can say anything about it." What does that have to do with this event? Absolutely nothing, I just felt like writing it. For this edition of G&M, we tackle the ever prevalent genre of Horror. My entry is about, not just my favorite horror film, but one of my all time favorites of any genre. Take a gander.

2010: The Retrospect: I give you run down on everything that stood out in 2010, from lines, to scenes, to soundtracks, to performances, culminating with my lists of Best and Worst of the Year!

Desert Island CD: Inspired by Andy's Desert Island DVD thing, Castor was the one who crashed the plane on the island. Once again, we somehow had all the food, water, and hard liquor we would need to survive until the rescue party came, but this time, we had no DVDs. No, instead, we had a walkmen with the battery power of nuclear reactor, and one CD, with 12 of our favorite songs from movie scores and soundtracks. Take a look at what people came up with.
