What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
It’s a personal blog with a major emphasis on movies. I watch a lot of them, from all eras and genres, and write about them. Usually it will be one 80’s movie a week, and several others scattered throughout, depending on what I’ve seen. I try not to review a movie unless I have something worthwhile to say- I watch too many movies to review each one in great depth. So if there’s one I want to recommend or tear apart, I’ll do so here. I have a few other “columns” I write about less regularly, like Greasy Spoons, about out of the ordinary eateries, or travel.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I enjoy writing and it’s a good outlet for my creative energy. I’d like to review movies or DVDs for a website someday, or be one of those guys on the Food Network who are paid to eat yak burgers and bacon wrapped bacon.

Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I prefer a back and forth with my readers. I don’t have much to teach, except a skewed manner of looking at things, or sharing opinions.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
A little under 6 months. I write posts daily. Movies are the subject at least once a week, usually daily.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Off the top of my head – Harvey, The Iron Giant, and Goodfellas.

How did you hear about the LAMB?
From LAMBer J.D.’s blog, Radiator Heaven.

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
At one time I watched 66 movies in a period of 2 weeks and gave each a short review on a forum. I barely remember some of them, so I try to limit my viewing to a sane level. Turner Classic Movies is the greatest friend a cinephile can have, or his greatest enemy.

    Thanks for welcoming me aboard! I put a shiny new button on.

  2. The reply to “Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more)” sounds dangerously similar to my reply for LAMB #117 – Cinemascope. Maybe it was a coincidence after all.

    Oops – that’s my mistake. I’ll edit to the way it is supposed to read.
