I'd Like To Thank...

I feel like an ungrateful cur. On March 2, blake over at Bitchin' Film Reviews bestowed upon me the Dardos Award because, and I quote, "your blog makes me pee my pants a little bit when I read it." How cool is that!? It was so cool that it's taken me a week to acknowledge it (there's the lameness on my part). The only other award this site has ever gotten was last year from the LAMB for my swanky-spanky banner. But I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Here's a little background about the award for those who don't know:

The Dardos Award is given for cultural, literary, and personal values in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.

In accepting the award, which I gratefully do, I must do two things:

  1. Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
  2. Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.

Like blake, I found #2 to be the most difficult as I follow a helluva lot of bloggers every week and the number doesn't get any smaller. That just shows what a wonderful world the Interspace-Hyperwebs really is. However, to properly accept the award, I had to bestow the Dardos Award to a mere five bloggers. My nominees are:

Friend Mouse Speaks: She works hard for no money, da-dum da-dum! So hard honey, honey. Every week she delivers up a site full of television recaps, book reviews, film reviews and bacony goodness.

Invisible Woman.....Black Cinema At Large: Keeping us up to date with the best, and sometimes worst, occurrences surrounding black cinema. She's been busy with a move of late, but hopefully she'll get her eye back on the King of Foolishness, Terrence Howard.

Film Book Dot Com: He is the Alec Guinness to my Mark Hamill, except I hope I don't come off nearly as douchey as the young Skywalker. There, I learn of entertaining things to come, swoon over lovely ladies like Kitty Lea and am guided to expand my mind, and website, to newfangled realms like Twitter.

The Movie Whore: Us whores gotta stick together, you know? Every time I stop by I am reminded of some forgotten gem of a film, discover a film to add to my never-ending NFQ, and get reminded that I need to blog less and work on my screenplays more!

The Large Association of Movie Blogs: That's if you're not into the whole brevity thing. It's better known as the LAMB and without it, I would have never encountered all these great folks, nor they me. Fletch has amassed an army of cinephiles that will shake the very foundations of the world!

I'd also like to thank...(the orchestra erupts, fade to commercial).

  1. Aw shucks, Wayne - thanks for the LAMB Love, yet again. I do it all for my people! ;)

  2. Congrats.

    Completely unrelated, you've been tagged.

  3. I am honored and speechless and verklempt (sp?) and ... trying to winnow my favorite blogs down to five and thus pay it forward. Muchas gracias, mi amigo.

  4. @Fletch- and you do it well.

    @Piper- Ack! I'll get right on it once the room stops spinning from the sideswipe. :-)

    @Friend Mouse- De nada! Picking the five was the hardest part for me, too.

  5. Thanks ever so much my film comrade--the same amount of love and more goes back to you :-)
