Blogs you should read Part 1

Now, see, I know I said I wouldn't be doin' nothing until Monday, but I am sick to death of studying for French/Film & Video finals (and by 'study', I mean watch Paris, je t'aime), and I now decide I am going to link up all of you lovely people. Yay! Free promotion! Your welcome.

Sugary Cynicism: My official/unofficial internet BFF, this chick is, like, smart funny. Why, just the other day, she talked about Dante's Inferno! That's smart stuff, right?

Pompous Film Snob: Frank, my stalker, who, yes, tends to get pissy because he can't find himself on my blogroll (he is THERE, alright!?!), but an astute Observer of Things, a rather well-versed film aficionado (that's a word), and I'm sure a lovely human being. Maybe.

Wild Celtic: An unwavering optimist, this one, who frequently shares her stories and whatnot (which are actually quite good). ALways makes me feel a little less shitty, if that says anything (it does).

Journalistic Skepticism: A guy who shares my love of all things Hepburn, and keeps his post short and sweet, which, y'know, is always good.

His Eyes Were Watching Movies: My second (un)official internet BFF, if only because he, too, loves the smooth stylin's of St. Vincent. An unapologetic Hayao Miyazaki obsessive, and a *shudder, hates this word* Gleek to boot.

Encore's World of Film & TV: This guy right here's what we call classy.

Marshall and the Movies: Sure, we had a tiny commenting war that one time, but who's counting (all the lost hours of obsessively refreshing the page ha ha...)? A connoisseur of Random Factoids, he be worth checking out. Yo.

A Life in Equinox: A Movie Lover's Journal: Univarn, who has maybe the best name ever, a funny dude who just got nominated for a Lammy for funniest writer, is what you must know, okay?

the m0vie blog: The spelling of that name makes me homicidal, but overall, a smart dude, tis. Every day, he shows up with an in-depth analysis of the current state of film, all that, that puts all of us mere mortals to shame.

Anomalous Material: Where all the cool movie bloggers loiter and try to out-comment each other. Recently, he's been hosting The Greatest Comedy of All Time Tournament, and shit's gettin' real over there, so go see.

Hyperbole and a Half: Not a movie blogger, okay, but this chick is goddamn funny.

The Writing Womb: Also not a movie blogger, but she, too, is awesome and funny, she who recounts tales of procrastination, Twilight hatred, and online letters to her dear friend Duane.

Scare Sarah: A horror blogger of semi-epic proportions, a funny British lass (that's a British term, right?) with an affinity for zombies (doesn't everyone?).

Chuck Norris Ate My Baby: Dude. Just look at that name.

My New Plaid Pants: In between ogling pretty people, he occasionaly reviews horror movies like *ahem* nobody's bidness.

He Shot Cyrus: Maybe the second-biggest (I haven't really researched) movie-blogger community-thing I can think of, and a gracious host, he is.

The List: He;s the Greatest Movie Blogger Ever. It's right there in his tagline.

Movie Mobsters: With an official-like layout and an affinity for (awesome) lists, the chick puts my pitiful place to shame.

M. Carter @ The Movies: Another smart-like analyist (analyzer?), etc.

Film Forager: With an affinity for Asian cinema (do we not all?), and reading her blog, I've discovered some pretty weird-ass movies.

The Movie Encyclopedia: If no one else will see it, he will. Duh.

Fandango Movie Groovers: Host of one of the most successful blogathons in recent history (aka this year), at least to my knowledge.

You Talking To Me?: An extra-smart (ahem) dude who hates shaky-cam and The A-Team (off the top of my head).

Sister: The coolest one you could imagine threatening your life.

Okay, I'm done. If I missed you, I'm terribly sorry, but my fingers fucking hurt. Perhaps next issue...

(I make no promises)

I'm not in your blogroll, and I didn't make the favorite list either. *snif* And after I gave you props for reading and commenting on every post of mine. I feel so...used.

Writing Womb: Peace to yourself, home skillet.

SugaryCynic: Is that to imply to have OTHER internet BFFs? *sob*

TJMAC510: Your name will be the death of me.

Simon: I don't know if you're kidding me back, but for the benefit of everyone else reading, it's The Projector Has Been Drinking.

Yea! Thanks for the mention and the writeup. Just in case you want more reassurance, St. Vincent remains amazing. :P

Wait...I don't see myself in your blogroll either! But it's all good. Haha

Marc: I was, like, half-kidding.

Robert: As if anyone needs to be told how amazing St. Vincent is!

And you are. Everyone leave me alone.

Frank: What IP address?

Well thank you for the plug although I only hate The A-Team, not necesarily the shaky cam. I feel like this whole A-Team thing is going to be ending up engraved on my tomb stone: Mike Lippert, husband, father, blogger, film lover, hater of A-Team: 4 outa 5 ain't bad.
