Thanks so much for the plug, I really appreciate it.

Since you're an old member, I wanted to let you know that the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die Blog Club is now officially back! If the posts for the upcoming Voyage dans la lune Blog-A-Thon are as plentiful as the emphatic blogger response, then it is already a success. I'm writing you today to welcome you back as a returning blog club member, and with news as to how I will manage the Club.

I will do my best to honour the old format: once a week I will write to a contributor asking for their title selection, one specific to a particular decade. Once they have chosen, I will post the assignment on the Club page. The standard deadline for a posting is one month. Every THURSDAY I will publish a post page for the film assigned one month previous, and so on on a weekly basis.

In the past, certain bloggers were removed from the 'members list' for lack of assigned film posts. I will not be continuing this tradition. Every contribution is a treasure, and blogging is a hobby for most, if not all of us. Whatever you contribute is welcome, and no one will be turned away for not writing enough. Also, should you have any posts for the films listed in the archives that you would like included, then feel free to forward them to me. I'll be more than happy to add them.

As with all projects, this one is bound to evolve. If there is something new you want to see, or something old that should be changed, including ideas for a better look, feel or formula, then let me know. I want this Club to start off perfect!

You can find the 1001 Club page right here: www.filmsquish.com/1001.

Also, aside from A Trip to The moon on November 29th, we already have our first next assignment, which is going up on Thursday December 2nd: The Passion Of Joan of Arc (1928), and Pather Panchali on December 16th.

Here's to hitting the ground running.
