1001 Movies...Before I Die!

Read what I write about what I see!

So it would seem...

So it would seem... ...that I've been nominated for a Kreativ Blogger Award...

I owe this prestigious distinction to the kind attention of the talented M. Carter, of M. Carter @ The Movies fame.  This award isn't all just fame and glory, though, it does have a certain set of responsibilities that come along with it.  Seven of them to be exact, and for the sake of convenience I've listed them below.

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award. 2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog. 3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award. 4. Name seven things about yourself that people might find interesting. 5. Nominate seven Kreativ Bloggers. 6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate. 7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

So numbers 1 - 3 have been taken care of, so it's on to number 4.

Seven Things People might find interesting about me (Might being the operative word here):

  1. I do all my best creative work late at night, and as a result...
  2. ...I am totally not a morning person.
  3. I am a complete and utter fan of most things French (the people, the culture, the language, the country, the cuisine, the films, etc...)
  4. I have a guinea pig named Oliver, after Oliver Stone.
  5. Oliver Stone's "JFK" and Akira Kurosawa's "High and Low" are in a dead heat for being my favorite movie of all time.
  6. Despite being a huge fan of films in all their "high-art" forms, I have a pronounced weakness for cheesy action movies of the 80's and 90's (Die Hard, Total Recall, The Terminator, To Live and Die in LA, Timecop, The Last Boyscout, Tango & Cash, Heat...you get where this is going)
  7. My fiancée and I are contemplating having a Twin Peaks themed wedding.

Now on to the seven blogs that I nominate.  I'll try to stay brief and to the point.
