HAPPY 10TH ANNIVERSARY!

anniversary

I’ve been so ridiculously busy lately that my anniversary completely slipped my notice. No, not my wedding anniversary. What do you think I am, suicidal? I mean my blogging anniversary. As of February 2017, it’s been 10 years since I started The B-Movie Catechism.

Now, that hardly makes me the longest running Catholic blog around (I’m pretty sure The Curt Jester has been going strong since before Al Gore invented the Internet), but 10 years is still a pretty good run considering the subject matter here. After all, how many other Catholic sites do you know that are offering essays on Scream Blacula Scream and Gymkata? Of course, my particular taste in movies has guaranteed me a niche position as a bit player in the big picture that is St. Blogs. So, while many of my contemporaries have gone off to book deals and radio spots and the like, I’m still sitting here trying to sound intelligent while talking about stuff like Frankenstein Island.

And you know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way. If God’s happy with me here, I’m happy with me here. Plus, the well never runs dry when it comes to religion or bad movies. I’m pretty sure I have at least another ten years worth of material to get to. So, as long as all of you keep showing up, I will too.

Thanks for a great first ten years, everybody!

Happy 10th anniversary! How did we survive before your insightful (almost spelled that inciteful there) and thought-provoking articles?

And think of all the joy you've brought to Catholic nerds everywhere! I'm certainly watching more movies now that I did 10 yrs. ago, thanks to you.

When you want to do radio, send me an email.

"I'm certainly watching more movies now that I did 10 yrs. ago, thanks to you."

Wait, are we sure that doesn't count against me?

As for the radio, I did actually make an appearance on the Drew Mariana show a couple of years ago to discuss the Academy Awards where I'm pretty sure I proved extemporaneous speaking is not my strong point. Still, never say never, I suppose.

Anyone who can draw moral lessons from Cherry 2000 and The Garbage Pail Kids Movie deserves to keep an audience for ten years going, and many years more.

I was worried where that was going for a minute :)
