What is the main focus of your site?
The subtitle is “groovy thoughts of a gay writer”, so basically Deep Dish is my blog and it freaks me out! And that line is adapted from one of my favorite films, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. I’m a composite of that film, Valley of the Dolls, Auntie Mame and The Awful Truth – or “bizarre campy cult”, “so bad it’s good”, “fabulous, darling”, and “funny as hell”. I write about film, television, politics, my own writing and gorgeous guys.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I thought it would be nice to have my own space outside of MySpace and Facebook and any other social network. A place where I could feature my own work and personal views about stuff that interests me and hopefully interests other folks.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I love to receive comments/feedback about what I blog about–and I also post polls about favorite films of directors/actors, etc. – so I’d say Deep Dish is an interactive community.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
Deep Dish was born on August 19, 2008, so it’s in its infancy. I post a weekly “Movie of the Week” blog featuring photos, videos and background information on one of my favorite films. And I try to post other updates at least once a day.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
The Awful Truth (Cary Grant/Irene Dunne), What’s Up, Doc? (Madeline Kahn), and Nashville (Robert Altman).
How did you hear about the LAMB?
My friend, Movie Dearest.
