Lots of news for this end of May wrap up. First on the block is Movie Mobsters awesome nomination for it’s first LAMMY ever! Apparently some of you spectacular readers and friends decided to vote our site as BEST DESIGN, which I can’t thank you enough for. It’s taking years and much blood, sweat and tears to learn all that’s been learned to get the site where it is at now, and here we are still trying to make it better for you. For you LAMBS that haven’t voted yet, you must! Go to the LAMB and check out the nominees and show your support by voting for your favorite LAMB in each category.
Also on the docket is our FAB FIVE commenting readers. We didn’t have a contest set up for May, so I’d just like to individually mention Frank at Pompous Film Snob, whose site I’ve only recently discovered and has quickly become one of my favorite sites to frequent is our leader this month showing the Mob some serious support 30 comments. He will ultimately be rewarded by joining our Borgata! In second place was the ever prolific and witty Castor from Anomalous Material, and if you haven’t checked out his site by now, you are seriously missing out and need to go immediately and catch up on some incredible posts, not to mention has the most LAMMY nominations out of all 500 eligible LAMBS. If that isn’t sexy, I’m not sure what is. With a respectable third place showing is KAI from The List, who is easily one of the coolest movie guys (and people period) on the Interweb, his posts are some of the most entertaining, smart (thanks to his VERY SEXY editor in chief), and funny. From love letters to Road House and Tremors to awesome collaborations from other bloggers, his site is wicked cool. Coming in fourth on the list was CMrok93 as you might know him and from the site Dan The Man’s Movie Reviews. Without question he has long since been an avid supporter here at the Mob and consistently shows us love with witty and insightful comments. Visit his site for some of my favorite movie reviews, and even more importantly incredible taste in movies. He’ll steer you in the right direction without question. He will also be joining the Borgata throughout June. Rounding up the final and fifth place is Peter from Magic Lantern Film Blog. Peter is also new to me here at the mob, but his site at Magic Lantern is also quickly becoming one of my favorite sites to frequent. It’s visually pleasing and fun to navigate, and is matched equally with stellar content, great interactive posting, and thought provoking reviews! There will be a contest for next months winner and rewarded with a nifty little prize. Also joining the Borgata throughout June is our new friend Peter. All of this will be officially announced within the week. Thanks for all five of you for your continued support and contribution to our site. You know it is appreciated by amounts unbound by time or numbers.
Also coming up for the month of June will be another trio of reviews from Jim, Jon and myself on Toy Story 3, so stay tuned for that. Also, Aragorn and Leonidas is the next Ultimate Deathmatch scheduled, and should be posted within the week. This months Groovers and Mobsters Present: will have a lovely showing about “The Dark Comedy”. For future interest in taking part or contributing, contact Andy at who is the master genius that spearheaded not only this lovely monthly feature, but also the epic Desert Island DVD’s. I was lucky enough to have been invited to do a guest spot at The Film Cynics awesome podcast on June 20th and will be sharing that with you all. What I realized from The Mad Hatters podcast was that I laugh every ten seconds. I’ll try to check that for you all listened. Speaking of podcasts, we are working on creating one for Movie Mobsters here, hosted by myself and Jim. For now Jon wishes to stick to the writing, but I’m pretty sure we can eventually sway him to come on an episode or two, profusely cursing or not.
And that’s about it! Thank you to everyone for continuing to support us. Thank you to THE LAMB for giving us the opportunity to whore ourselves across the web and have the best free advertising ever, and thanks to David Bowie, just because I like to thank him everyday for something.
