It’s A Wonderful LAMB: Film For The Soul.

by Nick Jobe · June 12, 2008 · Uncategorized · 8 Comments

So I’ve finally gotten around to the super-mysterious project ‘o DOOM that I’ve been planning for some time now (as Fletch mentioned previously). And it doesn’t involve Nic Cage. Unless, of course, Nic Cage joins the LAMB. What it is, though, is a weekly (hopefully) spotlight on a LAMB I choose at random. It’s similar to the introduction blurb we all get, but with different information. Think of it as somewhat of an update, or a “What are they doing now?” featurette. If anybody has any ideas on how to improve this feature, please don’t hesitate to tell me. I’m all up for suggestions. So on to the first randomly featured LAMB!

Blog Name: Film For The Soul.

Posting Name: Ibetolis.

Country of Origin: UK.

LAMB Number: 70.

Other: The blog has been up and running since March and currently has a total of 31 posts to date. It uses a nice mix of text, pictures, and even video. To Ibetolis, it’s a personal blog on the love of cinema, whether it be through reviews of favorite films or inspirational directors. His biggest running feature at the moment is a somewhat blog-a-thon of the 1000 Greatest Films of all time (God bless him and his sanity). But he has another new feature that details good opening scenes entitled “Now That’s How You Open A Movie!” As the blog is relatively new, there’s not much to discuss at this current moment, but it is very ambitious with its 1000 Greatest Films event, and I wish Ibetolis all the best in this endeavor!

  1. Awesome new feature! What a great idea! If only Nic Cage could share in the joy with us!

    🙂

    I’m speechless. Thanks, that’s made my day.

    As for my sanity. I do sometimes wonder.

  3. I love this! It’s such a fantastic idea! And… can I say… I’m a big fan of Ibetolis’.

    Cool idea, Nick.

  5. One idea did occur to me. What if two LAMBs were chosen at random to ask their own questions of each other? Sort of like a guest interview piece?

  6. Fletch says:

    Mike, that’s not a bad idea. I don’t think you could choose them totally at random, as people would have to want to participate first, but I guess if there’s an available pool of people interested, then choosing at random from there could work. Want to orchestrate it?

    Oh, and I’m looking forward to this feature. Congrats on being the first, Ibetolis!

    That’s a pretty cool idea, michael. It could be called… LAMB2LAMB or something 😛 . It’s like those things where celebrities/artists chat with and interview other celebrities and artists.
