StrangeCulture 4th Blogaversary!

So, I had a hard time choosing my blogaversary cake online, and settled on this one from Mani's Bakery in LA. Apparently Mani's made it without an artificial colors, prety sweet...unless the frosting taste like green beans.

Anyways, I decided in this cake because, I have a one-year old daughter and so I can have the fairy princess cake.

Actually, if there has been one film that seems to have had a large role on this blog over this past year, Strange Culture's 4th's Julie & Julia.

I was going to make a cake out of Mastering the Art of French Cooking as I have done a few times over this past year for my blogaversary art, but decided I was done with my Julia Child/Julie Powell posts.

In addition to those posts, this blog also saw more posts about films from the 1930s and 1940s, a "What Movies Do Christians Want" Series, a Peace series in October, as well as the annual Reel (Real) People series.
