Alright for now*

Ever have one of those days so good you want to wake up the next day and relive it? That was my yesterday … though Lee Pace and Colin Hanks weren’t waiting on the stoop to battle for a spot in my heart (and, OK, other areas). So it came damn close to being perfect.

Since my blogging machine is on the fritz, this is a brief post to say “thanks” for all the votes, readers and friends, that helped me win the LAMMY for Best Blog and tie for Best New LAMB and Best Movie Reviewer. The competition was fierce, and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

Kudos to all the fellow bloggers out there, many of whom took home awards of their own, including Heather at Movie Mobsters, Aiden R. at Cut the Crap Reviews, Ryan at The Dark of the Matinee (who cleaned house) and Andy at Fandango Groovers — just to name a few.

For everyone who supports these movie scribbles … you rock. You really do. And you make my heart of hearts very full.

M. Carter @ the Movies goes on the LAMB…

…if you’ll pardon the pun. On second thought, don’t hand out any pardons! I’m excited, maybe even a little giddy, and in this current state I wholeheartedly support the use of puns.

Eek. I’m more jacked up than a bored Palmetto State teen who just discovered Daddy’s basement meth lab. Best to calm the nerves by moving on to explanations. See, the admins at the Large Association of Movie Blogs (LAMB) have been kind enough to enter this little blog-0-mine as entry #349.

It’s not much, maybe, but considering I started this blog for fun and didn’t expect more than a few people to read my meandering thoughts about movies, it feels like a whole, whole lot.

So thanks, everyone, for the comments, the encouragement and even the criticism (you know who you are … “Observe and Report” dude) — all are necessary to this cosmic blogging process.

And also for forgiving me if that sounded a little bit like some half-baked acceptance speech. At least I didn’t go all Sally Field on you.
