Rating: R

What is the main focus of your site?
Reviews, sort of. Most posts deal with a single movie and are more in-depth than a typical review, but less in-depth than a full-on analysis. For the reader who wants more, but not TOO much more…

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
Mostly I just like arguing with strangers about movies. Come argue!

Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
Community! Otherwise I wouldn’t bother putting this stuff up on the internet. Plus, like I said, I like to argue.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I’ve actually just lost my blogging virginity this May. As for frequency: I like to post something around once a week, but I also have a rule that I try not to put up a post unless I actually have something quasi-substantial to say. So my posts are usually on the long side. I figure once I let myself go it’ll start looking more like Twitter than Blogspot, and that’s no good.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Seven Samurai, Re-Animator, Chungking Express.

How did you hear about the LAMB?
Fellow LAMBer and film studies cohort Scott, of He Shot Cyrus.

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
Have you ever taken a train and eaten it piece by piece, AFTER you just derailed it… with your penis?

It was for charity!
