StrangeCulture's 3rd Blogaversary!

I found this picture of an amazing cake online at the website for a NJ company called The Pink Cake Box and knew it had to be the virtual cake to celebrate my 3rd blogaversary...the first at the link

It's been a unique experience to be a blogger this year as my mostly-film & culture blog has at times become more serious this year. Maybe it's the result of my own life changes of becoming a dad, maybe it's the writer's strike and a year were the bulk of the film season was mediocre, or maybe that some things in news, the economy, and so forth we more interesting and deserved coverage.

The biggest "events" on strangeculture in my 3rd year were my Dads-in-Media Blog-a-thon which I thought was a great success...occurring just days before the birth of my wife and I's daughter, Linden.

During this year, my wife & I have also taken on new jobs, in a new state, purchased a home and had a handful of other meaningful adventures.

But that didn't take away from exploring some interesting things, both current and hold.

I greatly appreciate the many suggestions and high level of interaction in my 80s movie viewing experiment that began with the question "Where then any good non-quirky 80s movies?" And resulted in a very extensive 16-part series of 80s film viewing. (View the whole series covering all 48 80s films here).

I again enjoyed creating the Real (Reel) people series this year, although this years list was far less extensive then 2007, but I certainly am looking for to the 2009 edition in the next couple months.

A handful of favorite post from my 3rd year of StrangeCulture Blog included:
Thank you to all of you for reading, commenting, searching, suggesting, and sharing your thoughts every day!

Here's to year StrangeCulture and the start of year 4!
