Thank you to the diversfilm (Films Buffs) website for nominating me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award. You can see the website at:
So I am supposed to nominate 15 blogs (I feel like this is a chain letter). Here are some of my favorites.
Always some lovely pictures and poetry and always with optimism.
Great news site concerning global issues which you probably won’t find many other places.
Funny and serious thoughts of my extraterrestrial friend MIgo and his dog W.D. from the great land of Turkey.
Wonderful art criticism from the U.K. by the excellent Laurence Humphries.
Musings on classic film (Pola Negri) and many other things like Finland from a wonderful Peruvian-born writer.
Molly Thompson’s honest and emotional depth through deft writing.
That’s my top six in no particular order. I want to emphasize that each of these bloggers has been a very solid person (no matter how long I’ve known them). Their support has meant a great deal to me. Please check out their sites and make a new friend.
Now, I am also supposed to tell seven things about myself:
1. I live with my parents. I’m sure that won’t be a big shock to anyone with a psychological grasp of stylometry (or something).
2. I am a full-time graduate student in business. I have no idea why. What the hell am I doing? 🙂
3. I made my living recently (for four years) as the drummer in a Cajun punk rock band touring the world (a legit, Grammy-nominated group).
4. I have toured the following countries as a musician in various bands (as bassist and drummer): the U.K., Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, Canada, and my home the USA.
5. I was trained as a composer and have written orchestral arrangements for several notable bands and artists.
6. As a studio musician, I have played on a Top 40 album in the U.K. My specialty are the keys (piano and organ).
7. I have three cats
For those who I have “nominated,” please do not feel any pressure to do as I have done in accepting this award. If you do decide to accept the award in a fashion similar to mine, you will be in complete compliance by reposting the picture below.
Once again, thank you to my friend from France at https://diversfilms.wordpress.com/
I am honored to be recognized.
