11 Things About Me

This is third blog that I have written about movies about since 2008. RIP "On the Queue" and "Foolish Blatherings".

I am the middle child of three boys.

I was originally born with 12 fingers. The extras are gone, but I can still have sensation at the stubs.

I had a literary agent to a period of time in 2006 to get a book of poetry published.

I was in the Navy for an amazing month and half.

Inspired to blog from the Cinebanter podcast.

Co-manage an Oscar discussion group on Yahoogroups.

The first R-rated movie I saw was "Boyz N the Hood" in the theater when I was 11.

I have been on The Lambcast once.

I had over 200 YouTube videos blogging my life from 2006 to 2008. They have been deleted.

I have never been nominated for a LAMMY award.

Answer the 11 Questions

1. What would your dream movie theater have, besides just what is being played? My dream movie theater will have individual seats with dividers to prevent spillage, headphones to drown out crying babies and a safe to confiscate cellphones so peoples' ridonkulous ringtones won't go off.

 2. Name one movie that actually would be good to remake? I can't answer, because I don't like remakes that much.

3. What irritates you the most when blogging? The random negative comments saying, "You suck", "Are you stupid?", etc.

 5. Do you play drinking games to movies? If so, what do you drink? I don't play drinking games with movies.

 6. What is the best way to help save us when dolphins try to take over the world? Vern, I didn't know what the hell you were talking about. I had to look it up. How are they gonna take over? Make them watch The Cove. That will get them in line.

 7. What movie do you flat-out refuse to watch, no matter how good people say it is? That has never happened.

 8. Name at least 3 movies that you still watch on other formats besides DVD and Blue-Ray. The Shawshank Redemption, The Goodbye Girl, Stand by Me when it comes on basic cable.

  1. Branden! Glad to see you writing again, I thought you had retired. Thanks for the honor. I am smack dab in the middle of moving across the country, so I haven't had the time to post. But I wanted to thank you!
