    For many years the Mad Hatter at The Dark of the Matinee (http://www.mcneilmatinee.blogspot.com/) and Simon at Screen Insight (http://www.screeninsight.blogspot.com/) produced and hosted two LAMMY-Award nominated podcasts – and in Hatter’s case, LAMMY-Award Winning podcasts: The Matineecast and The Simon and Jo Film Show.

The line-up announced includes features about a formula one legend, a late-night talk show personality that was unceremoniously fired, real life people doing things you’ve seen in KICK-ASS, the plight...

    THE KING OF PAIN BLOG-A-THON @ THE DARK OF THE MATINEE

It was a fine idea, and one that I always wanted to pick up should he ever be unable to. Well, it’s been six months or so, and it’s high time another site gets some love. I know my position as editor/shepherd of the LAMB puts me...
