Doodad Kind of Town

You Say it’s Your Birthday? It’s My Birthday Too, yeah!

I’m blowing out birthday candles today, along with Bob and Diane. (The good news is, I’m much younger than they are!)

Coincidentally, this is also a birthday, of sorts, for this blog.

It was one year ago today I joined the Large Association of Movie Blogs (LAMB). That association has opened a lively world of discussion, debate, commiseration and shared laughs with many talented writers in the blogosphere. They can be found on my blogroll at the right.

The LAMB has grown by leaps and bounds in the past year. When I joined, I was number 24 on the roll. Today, the LAMB is 225 bloggers strong and still growing. There are a lot of cinephiles out there, and they have something to say!

As we roll in to 2009, I’m looking forward to continued lively debate at The Oldest Established Really Important Film Club. Each month, one member will choose a film for the entire club to watch. On a preordained date, that member will post about that film on their blog, and the members will “gather” there to debate and discuss. The festivities start one week from today (January 12), when the ever-erudite and entertaining Marilyn of Ferdy on Films will host the discussion on “The True Meaning of Pictures: Shelby Lee Adams’ Appalachia.” Be sure to join us!

Well, I wished you HAPPY BIRTHDAY in the other thread. So I just wanted to post here for posterity, Pat. I was aware that both you and the goddess DIANE shared a special day. Wonderful. Some very awesome people were born on my birthday as well.Funny how that works sometimes, right…? Anyway, honey, I sincerely hope you had a blast – and that there was something left of your home town once the celebration cooled down.

Jonathan and Fox,Thanks, guys!And maybe Jonathan is right. Maybe I am too nice. After yesterday, I’m probably old enough to move into the crochety, curmedgeonly stage of my life.
