Blogiversary Bash: an upcoming celebration/new series

I have no idea what is happening here.

I have no idea what is happening here.

Hey, guys! So I got to thinking last night about how I wanted to do another series at some point this summer, but I had no clue what to write about or when to do it. Then, my thoughts drifted to the fact that my one-year blogiversary is sneaking up (June 21), and an idea began to form. See, I tend to write about new films more often than not, but I’ve been wanting to look back and write reviews for some of my personal favorites–I just hadn’t figured out how I wanted to approach that yet.

So here’s what I’m thinking: instead of sending lavish gifts of wine and jewelry for this blogiversary (because I’m sure that’s what most of you were planning), I ask only this: let’s talk about our favorite movies! I want to hear about the films you can watch over and over again and never tire of. I’ll probably just write reviews for mine (unless I’m inspired to do something else), but you are welcome to send me any form of contribution dealing with your favorite(s)–reviews about them, original poems or songs praising them, original videos reenacting them–hell, I’ll even take fan fiction! This is a party honoring our favorite films, and I want you to celebrate them as you see fit.

Plenty of time to mull this over. I’ll probably cover the first two days (June 21-22) with a pair of posts, but after that I’d love to share whatever you guys send my way. If possible, I’d like to have your contributions by no later than June 20 (but you know me–if that’s a stretch, I’m sure I can accept them shortly after that). If you are interested and/or have questions, please feel free to comment below or contact me via my NEW EMAIL ADDRESS, which is Guys, I think this could be super fun. Can’t wait to get this party started! 😀

  1. I have a whole list of movies that I could watch over and over again. If you’ll have me I’d love to partake in this :].

  2. Hey Cara. By funny coincidence, I was putting a review up today of one of my fave movies, The Lost Boys. You want me to copy and paste it onto an email for you?

        • Miguel says he looks forward to his new swag. He can’t really wear rings, but he says he’ll put it on a chain and wear it…ugh, he’s really gonna make me type this…”next to his heart.” I think I just gagged. You should be careful. You’ve sparked Miguel’s interest. Right now, he’s just corny, but who knows what will follow…

  3. This sounds like big time fun! And I’m all about the big time fun. I also find joy in the smaller time fun, but you know what they say, go big or go small…wait, I don’t think that’s right.

    On a side note, may I please address the crazy picture you’ve chosen to pair with your post? More specifically, the cat. He looks like he’s stomping and clapping to some hillbilly jamboree, and it’s completely thrown my world off-kilter. I mean, everyone knows cats like jazz, right?

    • Lady, I would be thrilled to have you partake!! As for the picture, I really don’t know what on earth it’s all about. Honestly, I don’t even remember what search terms I used to find it. All I know is that I want my blogiversary to be THAT random and crazy. 😉

  4. I’ll do something! I always try to do something for a Proby. : ) I know I’ve started reviewing my very favorites with the CPD Classics thing but, if you don’t mind us maybe doing things other than reviews as well, maybe I can talk about one I’ve already reviewed? Hmm… I’ll get my thinking cap on! Um, if you actually want me….. ??? !

    • Of COURSE I want you in on this, Mutant!!!! Gees like there was ever a question!!!! Lol. As for what to do, that is 100% up to you. You can talk about one you’ve already reviewed, and you can talk about it however you like. Sky’s the limit. 😀

  7. I’m late to the party, I realize, but you said I have participated in every series you’ve yet run. I can’t break that streak now – it is just a non-option. I’ll get a submission to you very soon.
