An added bonus during the submissions stage (Feb 25 - March 17) is I have discovered LAMB member blogs I wasn't even aware of. For example, soundtrackgeek, or this list of the 30 Best Italian Movies Of The New Millenium.

  11. No harm done with Videodrome. It was an interesting watch. If anything it increased my appreciation for films of that type, and for Network, which has just gotten better in my head from the one and only time I've seen it.
    I also haven't died, even though it seems that way pretty often.

    1. @niels85: I should really give Network a second look, been a while since I saw it.
      haha, I'm glad you are still blogging! Keep it up. Always fun to compare notes on film watching. We all need our breaks from WWW.
