Everybody’s Chattin’ List Edition – and 2011 LAMMY Awards!

Hi everyone! Usually I publish Everybody’s Chattin’ at the end of the week, but I’m all about mixing things up here. Besides, link loves would surely be welcomed any day, right? 😀 So let’s get to ’em, shall we?

  • To coincide with Fast Five‘s opening weekend, Castor lists his 10 Most Awesome Cars in Movies. I grew up with a pair of older twin brothers, so naturally I played with match cars instead dolls. As I said in the comments, my ultimate dream car has got to be this sleek Aston Martin DBS.
  • The motherload of movie lists, Top 10 UK blog, never fails to live up to its name. Last week, its contributor Rodney presented a list of ten best movies from Ridley Scott in the span of his prolific 40-year career.
  • My pal Custard over at FrontRoomCinema overcame his ‘bah humbug’ attitude and succumbed to his young daughters’ wishes to celebrate the Royal Wedding. So, here’s five best wedding films in honor of William & Kate.
  • Lovely Anna from SplitReel is tackling quite a daunting task of 30 Day Film Challenge she found on Facebook. Check out the 30 things she’ll be blogging about every single day and wish her well on the project!
  • Now, this isn’t exactly a list post, it’s more of a list of review posts from Mad Hatter as part of his extensive Hot Docs coverage. If you don’t know already, Hot Docs is Canada’s International Documentary Festival held annually in Toronto.

Now on to the announcement…

The 2011 4th Annual LAMMYS Awards is here!

It’s the event all movie bloggers are waiting for… yes, this is the time where we get to vote AND if we’re fortunate enough, get nominated by our peers who belong to the Large Association of Movie Blogs (LAMB). If you haven’t already, please cast your vote! There are 15 categories to vote for and nominations will close on Saturday, May 9.

This is the first year FlixChatter (LAMB #612) is participating, and I’d kindly ask fellow members to consider yours truly in these four categories:

Well, happy reading! And for those of you LAMB members, don’t forget to vote!

  1. Thanks for the plug.

    I’ve had a lot more interest from the community at large this year, and it’s really helped me push through during moments (like now) when I’m so very beat and just want to get a good night’s sleep!

    1. You’re welcome, Hatter. That’s great to hear that people have been responding to your Hot Docs stuff, it’s amazing the amount of time you dedicate to it, I commend you sir! Yes, do get a good night’s sleep… or two 🙂

  2. Hi Ruth!!

    Thanks so much for the Link! Very Very kind of you. Always nice to see my name in lights up there with the big hitters (Hatter, Castor and Dan as well as the others)

    When it comes to the Lammy’s I wish you all the very best, I know there may be some loving from the FRC!! 😉

    Next year I will make a campaign I think, still finding my feet.


    1. A big wave to my bestest bud!!! 😀 I love your positive energy, Custard, your comment always make my day.

      Sheesh, a good post is a good post, man… no matter how big or small your blog is.

      So you’re a LAMB member, too? That’s cool. Yeah, I’m a relative newbie too when it comes to blogging.

  3. PrairieGirl

    So you played with match cars, Flixy? I climbed trees and built forts with the boys instead of playing with dolls too ;-D
    Wishing you the best of luck with the LAMMY’s.

  4. I had Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars as a kid too, but when I got older I really wanted a remote-controlled car, especially the kind you can drive over different kinds of terrain. I forgot about it as an adult, but every now and then I’m reminded of it and tell myself I should buy one eventually.

    1. My grandma actually bought me a motorized race-car I could ride on when I was about 7 or 8, man that was one of the highlights of my childhood.

  5. ….oh…re: The Lammy Awards…already voted! I may have made a mention of Flixchatter once or twice…though I’m not telling! 😉

    1. @ Fitz and Dan – thanks for the vote guys, I’m not expecting to win anything but it’s always awesome to hear you like FC enough to vote for me 😀
