LAMB #975 – Love & Squalor

by Rachel · June 15, 2011 · New LAMB · 3 Comments

Site Name: Love & Squalor
Categories: Reviews, General, Editorials, Classic Film, Lists, (other) Mixtapes, Style
Rating: PG-13

What is the main focus of your site?
Reviews of recent theatrical releases, working out our cinematic obsessions.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
The site works as both an ongoing online portfolio for myself and M. (both academics and freelancers IRL), it’s a place where we get to pretend our opinions matter and where we perpetuate the dream of one day advancing into the big leagues while doing that which we would do anyway.

Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
We would prefer an interactive community. Otherwise, what’s the function of posting something online?

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
The site has been active since October of 2009

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
I can’t speak for M., but mine might be:
1. La Dolce Vita
2. Brazil
3. The Royal Tenenbaums

How did you hear about the LAMB?
I’ve noticed that the real active, independent, film blogging community all seems to be rooted here.

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
It may be true that sometimes our film blog does look like a fashion blog. We promise you, though, our film focus is real and we’re not going to treat you like you just walked into an immaculate upscale boutique if you leave us a comment. “Not as tragically hipster as we seem.”

    get rid of your huge signature at the bottom of each post. Everything else looks OK

    I don’t believe this new LAMB was asking to be blustered. Is that any way to welcome a new member?

    We’re thrilled to be included. Thank you, thank you!

    @anonymous: there are two of us, so we’ve found throwing the signatures on makes it immediately clear where the voice is coming from. They could be smaller, but I guess it’s part of the aesthetic.

    @Rachel: Thanks for the defense!
