Another Award for The Celluloid Highway

My esteemed blogging colleague Venoms5 over at Cool Ass Cinema (easily one of the best film blogs around) generously bestowed this award upon The Celluloid Highway So I only thought it is right and proper to thank him and continue the charitable impulse by passing it on to those blogs who I am currently enjoying and admiring. The rules for claiming this award are simple; one must list ten things they enjoy and list ten deserving blogs.

10 things that bring me joy

01 Ice cream (especially raspberry ripple)

02 Flood, famine, pestilence...and plague (thats four things, but they are all kinda inter-related)

03 Klaus Kinski (very similar to the above actually, if you believe Werner Herzog)

04 The continual failure of the England football team

05  A really creepy and well written horror/ghost story in winter time.

06 Beer or cider or lager or whiskey or rum or vodka or......

07 The films of Rutger Hauer (even 'Bone Daddy' and 'Blast!')

08 Nuns

09 A nice restaurant, with an excellent menu, moody and romantic lighting...and then the mother of all arguments.

10 Those who follow my blog  - such charming, intelligent and discerning people.

10 Deserving Blogs

Breakfast in the Ruins
Cult Movie Reviews
Quiet Cool
The Agitation of the Mind
The Death Rattle
The Film Connoisseur
The Spooky Vegan
Too Much Horror Fiction
Totally Jinxed

Thanks to all those who take the time to read my reviews - it is most appreciated :-)

    I've just been enjoying a happy week of whisky and weird tales myself, so I hear ya on items 5 and 6.

  9. No problem Ben - weird tales and whiskey (as long as its malt whiskey) seems like a utopian way to spend a week.
