1. Oscar Week celebrations, Hollywood and Linc

It's Oscar week! It kind of snuck up on me, to tell you the truth...

In case you're wondering why it matters: Double Vision: The Alias Men (Linc's third adventure) sets in Hollywood, with the final scenes during the Academy Awards. It was a lot of fun to take the story there. The ending is pretty over-the-top--such a blast to write.

To celebrate, I thought I'd give away a copy (U.S. only, postage is wicked expensive overseas...) of Double Vision: The Alias Men. Later this week, I'll share some resources I found during my research for the book--all about Charlie Chaplin, silent films, and Hollywood history. Cool stuff.

In the meantime, here are the nominees for Best Animated Feature, since those are kid-friendly. I'm ashamed to admit that I have only seen the Dragon 2 movie (which was fun). Any guesses on the winner...?

Here is the full list of categories and nominees.

2. Keep Your Eye On The Kid

The Early Years of Buster Keaton by Catherine Brighton Roaring Brook 2008 I'm all about giving kids a more rounded cultural education and I think film is one of those areas where American kids are really at a deficit. I once met a teen who was planning to study film when he graduated high school who had never heard of Orson Wells, couldn't name a single film from the 1960's, didn't think

3. More Totally Fabulous Blogs

Christy, from Totally Fabulous and I have created this Totally Fabulous Award for bloggers!

We will be giving this award out to those bloggers who are fun, cool, and of course Totally Fabulous!

If you'd like to pass this award to some more fabulous people then go right ahead, we have lifted the limit you can give out, and it really isn't required you give out any at all, it's totally up to you!(no pun intended) Christy suggested we make the award free of any rules to begin with, and gave out as many as she saw fit. Then our great friend and hilarious blogger, Sandee, from Comedy Plus played by her own rules and gave out as many as she wanted as well. lol! When I saw that the two of these bloggers (who are obviously more experienced bloggers than I) gave out more than five awards, I thought, well...

I missed it up again, ... and now I have some "'splaining to do" as Ricky Ricardo would say, ...or should I say an apology to make? I'm sorry, ... but happy to have a chance to make it up to the blogs I left out due to the rule. Congrats and please except my apology! Have fun giving out as many as you like, and link them back to Christy and Me! Also, please link your post back to the original post on Totally Fabulous, so that there's an original point of reference.

Have fun!

Here are some more fabulous blogs most of which were on my new blogs on blogroll list that possess the qualities we felt typical of Totally Fabulous award recipients,

I would like to give a special thanks to Christy with Christy's coffee Break, Sandee at Comedy Plus, Dawn and Ann at Twisted Sister, and Bob at Bobbarama.com for recognizing and validating my material. A supportive friend is the life blood of every writer, and to have more than one fills my heart with unspeakable gratitude.

If you feel you are also 'Totally Fabulous' and have been left out please let me or Christy know and you will add you to the totally fabulous list.

This award was designed by Mike Wheeler of Ordinary Folk. If you would like to have a cool blog badge, award, or special profile picture created then contact the artist for his rates. ~
