I Rock! Blog Love Monday And Movies

Thank you Captain Ninja Alex, who stunned me with his You Rock Award. Just wow. Holy Guacamole this is incredible!

After Maynard's award and now Alex's, plus all of the awesome comments you leave here every day, I am just blown away and profoundly grateful to be a part of this community.

Alex included me in some very cool company, bloggers that I just love and admire. Go check out these magnificent people who make this blogging community a great place to be:


Ella at Ella's Edge Her poetry and art are incredibly beautiful. She's also celebrating a three year blogoversary. Yay!

Roland at Writing in the Crosshairs His writing is just phenomenal and he is a great community supporter.

MPax at Wistful Nebulae Her writing is sheer brilliance, her knowledge of all things astronomy is vast and her photos are gorgeous.

Matthew at The QQQE He does wonders to help his fellow authors and bloggers. I love his query critiques. He offers a lot of great advice and so do the people who leave comments.

Old Kitty at Ten Lives and Second Chances She is just the best. So funny and so warm. She gives a lot of blog love to everyone she can out there. A pillar of this community.

Jeremy at Retro Zombie Zombies, art and whatever else comes to his wildly imaginative and brilliant mind. Jeremy's site is eclectic and cool. Not to mention his awesome books.

And now, if Captain Ninja Alex doesn't mind, I'm going to pass along this You Rock Award to a very special little girl. Alani is 7 years and plays little league baseball on my nephew's team. She not only plays with the boys, but she does so with a hearing impairment. Alani has to step up to bat without her hearing aids because they interfere with the protective helmet and that means when that umpire calls balls and strikes, she can't hear him. Nor can she hear  when she's out on base. Those coaches sign to her the count and what to do next. I think she is just incredible, her spirit so bright and strong. You Rock, Alani! Keep it up Little Sister!

I can't believe it is June. I'm looking forward to some great movies this month. Snow White and the Huntsman, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and of course, the epic Prometheus. I'm actually leading a cool discussion about Ridley Scott's epic Alien over at 1:37 Exactly in honor of the release of Prometheus.

I'll be doing salacious and nefarious things for movie dough at this rate because I still have Dark Knight Rises to look forward to and don't get me started on December, yet. LOL What movies are you looking forward to?

      And thank you for heading over to the Alien talk. It was one of my favorite movies.

  2. The "you rock" from Alex is well-deserved for both you and Alani. Like you I'm really looking forward to 'Prometheus.' I will have to join the discussion on 137.

    1. Thank you very much, Mariah. My excitement for Prometheus has reached a fever pitch. :) And thanks for heading to the Alien talk. I love Russ' movie discussions and I was happy when he asked me to do this.

  3. I am looking forward to Abe Lincoln and Promotheus. These days there aren't a considerable amount of good movies out there. Hollyweird is hell bent on reruns and remakes.

    1. Amen, Jeremy. There are way too many remakes, re-imaginings, etc. I love it when they finally release new, original stories. I just finished the Abe Licoln book so my anticipation of the movie is now amped up.

  4. As soon as I saw the guitar pic, I knew it was an Alex thing.

    And it sounds like Alani is definitely deserving of the You Rock award. Good for her!

    I saw Snow White and the Huntsman. I would've like it more had Kristen Stewart not been in it.

    1. Alani is so awesome, I just had to give her this shout out after seeing her play. And I love it that our local Little League lets girls play.

      LOL on Snow White. I had a problem with K Stew the moment I heard she was going to be in it. And she proved me right in the trailer.
