Hey everyone, how’s it going?
First of all, I’d like to take a quick moment to thank everyone for your support last time in helping me get “The Shining” elected as the LAMB’s Movie of the Month. 16 different movie bloggers wrote and/or published “Shining” related articles, including myself. You can see them all, here.
As you all know, I also had the honor of appearing on the LAMBcast again to discuss the movie. Well, originally, it was a bit of a disheartening experience for me. Skype issues made the recording session brutal to work through, and we had a very difficult go of it. In the end, we cut the discussion short. I was more than a little bummed.
But then, when I heard that the LAMB also went over their bandwidth limit on their podcast host, and couldn’t get the podcast posted? I suddenly became PSYCHED. I realized…
“The Shining” podcast was CURSED
Yeah… JINXED, BABY! WOO!! LOL.
Jinxed or no, it came out really well. Thanks to Dylan Fields of Man I Love Films, LAMBcast host and producer… he smoothed out the recording issues, put together a very listenable product, and worked around the hosting issue in order to get the podcast up. You can download it from the LAMBcast archives here. If anyone wants to listen but can’t, just get in touch with me and I’ll see if I can help.
But the LAMBcast is ongoing, and this is the first month that they’re instituting the new “
FMR Champions Rule”. Now how it works is that bloggers nominate movies to be included in the poll, and if they can muster enough votes for their cause, the movie they “Champion” will be the next movie of the month. The winning movie’s “Champion” will also be given a spot on that month’s Lambcast.
The movie I selected for this inaugural “MOTM Champions” contest is Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner”. It’s one of my favorite films of all time… It’s an incredible blend of Science Fiction and Film Noir. A futuristic detective story where the “Dame” is a robot, and the villain comes with an expiration date. I’ve already done a MTESS on it, but I’m sure if it wins I’ll find the motivation to expand on it, or create something new…
Of course, in order for that to happen, it needs to win the poll first! Voting is open through Saturday night, and we’re off to a strong start thanks to a push from my friends on Facebook, and the fact that “Blade Runner” kicks ass.
I still need your help to ensure we win the day though, so if you have a moment, and if Blade Runner is a movie you enjoy – OR if you just want to support the FMR cause, please click here to vote “Blade Runner” for the next Movie of the Month!
