(Editor’s Note: this site is no longer functioning. Thanks to its author for submitting to the LAMB, and pour some out for a fallen homie.)


Site Name: Here’s Looking Like You, Kid
Categories: Reviews, Editorials, General
Rating: PG-13

What is the main focus of your site?
I describe my site as “a working scrapbook of vintage glamour based on classic film,” but I also think it is about exposing people who eschew “old films” to great vintage films.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I am a paid blogger for Twolia; but I selected my own topic/theme & ultimately I’d say my goals are to talk about vintage film and fashion in the ways they are similar (used to create images, reflective of a place and time, not “old junk” to be discarded, not perfect, etc.) to create more fans of classic & vintage films.

(Being syndicated or getting another paid gig wouldn’t hurt tho! lol)

Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I’d prefer more of an interactive community, where I lead or facilitate, but we all bring something to the table. As I’m more of a research nut, tho, and I’m trying not to cover the same old ground in the same old way, the blog is slanted more towards me providing the information — but I love it when folks add to the stories & provide new information & opinions!

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I’ve been writing & blogging for years (under different pen names); this blog started in November of 2008 & I post 3-5 times a week.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
This is hard! My tastes & moods dictate… Today’s snapshot of movie loving me is: The Women (the original version), Safe In Hell, & Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

How did you hear about the LAMB?

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
I am eager to participate in LAMB events!
