Versatile Blogger Award


I was quite surprised when I found out that Michael from Parlor of Horror nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award this past Wednesday.  I haven’t really had time until now to give a proper response, so I apologize for the delayed response.

The Rules of the Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

  1. In a post on your blog, nominate 10 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award; and link to them.
  2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
  3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
  4. In the same post, share 10 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
  5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
  6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

Thank you Michael at Parlor of Horror for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  You can check out his cool blog here.

*UPDATE 4/23/13: I received another Versatile Blogger Award nod, this one coming from Lindsey at the motion pictures on 4/18.  A special thanks goes out to her as well, and don’t forget to check out her cool blog.*

Here are the 10 blogs I nominate for the Versatile Blogger Award:

Yards of Grapevine
Tim’s Film Reviews
Fog’s Movie Reviews
Head In A Vice
Hard Ticket To Home Video
Vic’s Movie Den
Rorschach Reviews
Anti-Film School
cinematically insane

Here are 10 random facts about me:

  1. I’ve now seen every Stanley Kubrick film on the big screen at least once.
  2. George Carlin is my all-time favorite comedian.
  3. I worked for the U.S. Postal Service for a whole month a few years ago.  It was a completely horrible experience.
  4. I believe that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld are war criminals that will never be brought to justice.
  5. The only two bad movies I’ve ever seen on the big screen are 1993’s Super Mario Bros. (I was 9 and didn’t know any better) and 1999’s Wild Wild West (it was a cousin’s birthday, and the choice was either that or Big Daddy).
  6. I was once accused of being a racist for simply stating that Tyler Perry makes incredibly crappy movies.
  7. I’m equally a NY Mets and NY Yankees fan; most NY baseball fans hate a guy like me.
  8. I got to meet Oscar winner Michael Moore at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and got to take a picture with him.
  9. I consider the United Kingdom/Ireland region of the world my Nexus (just to be clear, this is a Star Trek reference); I’m just dying to return there.
  10. I hate New Jersey.  It’s like a Bizarro version of New York; something about that state just feels off.  I often refer to it as “Paradise Lost.”

  1. Thank you, my friend! That is very cool that you got to see every Kubrick film on the big screen. I am very jealous!


    • You’re welcome. It wasn’t easy to catch the six remaining ones I hadn’t seen on the big screen yet at the IFC Center last month (and I almost missed a couple of them), but I managed to pull through. I still need to make up for some of the sleep I lost out on during that period.

  2. Thanks for the nomination. Funny thing about SUPER MARIO BROS. I took my girlfriend’s son to see that in 1993. There was a small fire in the theater and we were all evacuated, so I only had to sit through 30 minutes. What a relief! Thanks again.

    • You’re welcome. I would’ve welcomed a theater fire if it meant preventing me from seeing that awful movie on the big screen. If only I could’ve convinced my parents to take me to see Cliffhanger instead. That would’ve been awesome.

  3. Thanks! 🙂 At one point when I lived in the Bronx I used to go see both the Mets and the Yankees. I drove my friends completely nuts. Now my Dad and I are baseball rivals since he is a die hard Mets fan and I a Yankees nut. Thanks for sharing those random facts. (I think NJ is a wacky state as well)

  4. funny facts! especially the Tyler Perry and the Bizarro NY items.

  5. Thank you very much 😀

  6. Thank you kindly. 🙂

  7. Thanks my friend, much appreciated!!
