My good friend and fellow blogger Mike over at MikesFilmTalk has gotten the insane notion to present me with the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Personally I think the guy must have eaten way too much Quorn; but I certainly appreciate it!

However, with great power comes great responsibility; so I have to hold up my end of the bargain. So, there are a few things I need to do. Oh, and for the 15 bloggers I nominate for the award, you have to do it, too, should you choose to accept.

1. I have to display the award logo on my blog. That big fancy picture above you and the smaller one to the side fulfills that part of the deal; so, check.

2. I linked back to Mike, the guy who nominated me. Yep!

3. I have to list seven things about myself. Lovely, just lovely.

4. I must nominate 15 bloggers and link back to them. Okay.

5. I must notify the 15 bloggers that I nominated and let them know that I nominated them.

So, I have 1 and 2 accomplished, so…

1. One of the reasons my wife married me is because I rescued a tiny frog from being killed by some unwitting Wal-mart employees. The poor thing was entangled in a dust ball and I released him and they were going to sweep the poor thing to death. I untangled him and put him in the garden section near the ponds.

2. (Holding thumb and forefinger about a millimeter apart) Every year I miss being voted People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive by that much.

3. After last Sunday I now know what it feels like to cut your finger (or thumb) with a large butcher knife. Ouch.

4. If I were a professional wrestler I would definitely be the heel, or the bad guy if you prefer. Heels are way more dimensional in their personas.

5. I suffer from panic attacks.

6. I get overwhelmed in crowds. Crowds wouldn’t be so bad if there weren’t so many people.

7. I try not to take life too seriously. But you know what? Sometimes it can get to me no matter how hard I try.

Now, on to Numero Four-o

In no particular order,the Nominees for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award are:

Andy Watches Movies

Thoughts of a Diva

Hard Ticket to Home Video


parlor of horror

Cathy’s Voice Now

Belle Grove Plantation Bed and Breakfast

Head In A Vice

My Two Cents

Deep Red Rum


Dreams of Shadow

Aloha, Mister Hand

Rhino’s Horror


I will notify the 15 bloggers and therefore shall fulfill my end of the deal. If you choose to accept then just follow the five rules that I have so graciously laid out for you. Even though I know I can be a bit of a smart ass at times, I truly appreciate this award and accept it with all humility. Thank you.

About jmount43

I was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina on March 4, 1962. I guess that makes me old, but I certainly don't feel that way. I still play video games and listen to rock and roll music. I love movies, especially horror films. I have a beautiful wife who is my all time best friend. She supports me in everything I do. More importantly, she calls me out on my bullshit. This blog is dedicated to her for everything she's done for me.
