This humble blog has been bestowed with two awards, the Kreativ Blogger (yes, that's creative with a K minus the E) and the Lovely Blog (sounds so frilly, like lace and doilies). They were respectfully given to us by our fellow broheim in crime Mattsuzaka over at Chuck Norris Ate My Baby and Mr. Chuck 'you know my stance on the debate from my blog title' Conry over at Zombies Don't Run. Muchas gracias mis amigos!
Now to dish out BOTH awards to a group other deserving blogs. Yup, there are separate rules for both but I'd probably overlap anyways so fuck it. We won a similar award last year, The Honest Scrap. So click on the link and be transported to the 7 (or in this case 10) random things that are supposed to be posted about us. Thats if you are just dying to know some random shit about the two of us yahoos.
Here are our award winners (wieners?):
1. Heart in A Jar: Hands down, the best new horror blogger of 2009. The quality of Steven Senski's posts are bar none and he wrote my favorite blog post of 2009. Doing a bit of investigative work, he uncovered the hard knocks the film Silent Night, Deadly Night went through along with the two pea brained women who stopped at no cost to strong arm theater owners and distro companies (check it out here). I can't wait to see what he has in store for 2010. Simply put, you need to be reading his blog.
2. Chuck Norris Ate My Baby: The funniest guy in the blogging world, horror or not. Mattsuzaka's blog is just plain fun. With posts that range from horror news, to reviews, with also a focus on action films and classic westerns, Matt's posts are top notch, informative with an infusion of goofy ding dongery. Not too mention, he has the two best weekly series on the interwebs: Freddy's Friday Night Dance Party and The Horror Hangover. Also also not too mention, the dude is 9 times out of 10 living in my brain. I think we may have in fact been separated at birth.
3. All Things Horror: Mike Snoonian and Chris Hallock are a dynamic duo of awesome (although I'm sure they'd argue over which one is the caped crusader). Well thought out critiques on horror films, I always search their blog to see how their assessments stack up against my own. Plus, they received my respect and admiration for putting on a film festival in their hometown supporting indie horror filmmakers. Mad respect yo!
4. The Deadly Doll's House of Horror Nonsense: Emily over at the longest named horror blog ever, makes quality posts about a vast array of topics, all of which are horror related. From reviews to stories to tidbits about her childhood to REALLY uncovering the horrors behind the Christmas holiday (see here), her wit, humor and writing style is truly unique.
5. The Jaded Viewer: Our other brother from another mother, Jeffrey Atencio is a critic like no other. Don't let the name fool you, he's as objective and fair as they come. Focusing on the finest and not so finest of the horror, grindhouse and exploitation cinema world, he breaks down each review and doesn't get too bogged down with meandering thoughts or incessant ramblings. Straight and to the point, his analysis of each film should leave no doubt in your mind whether or not you should waste that precious NetFlix queue position. Not too mention, his patented ratings system should leave no question as to how serious he is about the films he reviews and covers. Watch out for flying spinkicks!
6. Zombies Don't Run: Our newest friend Chuck posts about anything his little zombie dragging feet desires. From topics ranging from the de-evolution of horror cover art to the death of video stores to his own commentaries regarding what he's seen (both old and new horror films), Chuck does his darndest to provide a wide array of posts that will appeal to every horror nerds heart.
7. Dinner With Max Jenke: Jeff Allard's posts are nothing short of perfection. His analysis of film is impeccable and his knowledge is equally unmatched. His review of Avatar singlehandedly convinced me to give the movie a shot. Sorry Jeff, aside from the effects, I had major issues with it. Regardless, if a review can change your mind about a film you had altogether written off, I think thats a testament to one's writing and influence.
Congrats to all and keep up the amazing work. Now here's your totally gay JPEGs:
