House cleaning

At the suggestion of my mother, who pointed out correctly that there were several dead links under the category of "Sites I Like," I have attempted to meddle with it for the first time in what might be two years.

I've removed my brother's former blog, which hasn't been updated in a very long time, and Maggie Large's Amped, which is also defunct. I also tried to add any sites that I should have added long ago, had I been taking proper care of this site.

If you've been left off and want to be included, please just let me know, and also speak up if I've misspelled anything (which I am quite prone to do.)

And now I'm off to see a movie, either "Stardust" or "Rescue Dawn," I haven't decided which yet. Peace out.

I always feel weird recommending my blog to other people's sidebars (I always feel like I need to earn my place there, not just have it given to me), but since you opened the door I feel like it'd be foolish to let the opportunity pass.

I wouldn't mind being added to your blogroll, RF. Of course only if Windmills actually is a "site you like." I don't want you to be disohonest or feel compelled to include me just because I asked.

At any rate, if you like it, I'd be honored to receive a mention. If you haven't looked at it for a while, that's okay. You might be interested to check it out now as I am in the middle of a massive undertaking called "31 Days of Spielberg" that's taking up a lot of my time and energy. If you have checked it out and don't dig it, that's fine too. No hard feelings.

I feel like I should quickly mention (with no ulterior motivation whatsoever) that I love your blog and read it just about everyday. I know I don't leave comments as much as I used to, because of this Spielberg project, but I am pleased to have you on my list of links. Keep up the good work. :)

I'd suggest Rescue Dawn. Whatever you do go see, let me know what you think!

Fletch said...

I'll repeat both of the comments so far - since you're offering, I'd love to be in your blogroll.

And I'd definitely pick Rescue Dawn over Stardust.

Reel Fanatic said...

I'm adding you all to the list, not because you bothered to ask but, for these two reasons: I like all your blogs and I have a horrible memory!

I've actually just realized that I dont have a list of other sites on my own site. I need to correct that.

My site has been plugging along for a while now and I think its time for a re-design. Mostly because I think I am tired of looking at the same design every day. Anyone have any skills at website design, please drop me a note. I'd love to talk with you about it.

Filmstalker.co.uk is definitely worth adding to your list if you're not already subscribed to it (nothing to do with it personally it's just one of my favourite RSS feeds)

Reel Fanatic said...

It can kind of be a pain in the ass if you forget to keep track of it, judge, as I had for a long time until now .. and thanks for the tip, Mr. Smith .. Filmstalker is indeed a worthy addition, and I've added your site too (once you get the review sites back up I'll gladly switch it to that, if you wish)

Rescue Dawn is amazing. Startdust is eeeh. If your going to spend money on a movie, make it Rescue Dawn.

I hope you went to see Stardust! I went and saw it this weekend. To be honest I had very low expectations. The trailer was fairly good but fizzled about half way through. However, with the cast (mainly DeNiro) I knew I had to see it. I was pleasantly surprised. :)

Hi Keith,
Since we've seen both Rescue Dawn and Stardust, you'd think I could choose! The two movies are in such different categories, however, that it's impossible to advise you.
Rescue Dawn was gripping, amazing and exhausting. Stardust was quite beautiful, with some dry humor and the audience really enjoyed it. My husband preferred Rescue Dawn - he's a Hertzog fan and had already seen Little Dieter Wants to Fly.

Thanks for the guidance, Annie ... I ended up seeing both, and thoroughly enjoyed "Rescue Dawn" .. I, too, had seen "Dieter," and the fictional take was almost as good as that geat documentary ... As for "Stardust," I definitely enjoyed the look of it, but thought the story lost a little juice about halfway through

Eric said...

I just saw that you added mine too. Thanks thats cool. Coming tomorrow Camera Test 2, Where in you can watch me and Lorraine be lighting standins

Reel Fanatic said...

I'll definitely check that out, Eric ... I doubt being linked here garners anyone a lot of traffic, but you never know

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

I'd love to be added to your list! I just revamped my several blogs and and planning on putting my links up soon so this seems like perfect timing!

Reel Fanatic said...

Ask and you shall receive, Shannon .. I checked out both your blogs, and though I like them both, I've added the Movie Moxie site, since that would have more interest for people who don't have the pleasure of living in the great city of Toronto

Shannon the Movie Moxie said...

Thank you! :)

Chalupa said...

Thanks for adding me to your links! My life has been given over to work preparing for the upcoming school year so I haven't had a chance to check up on blogs in a while.

Reel Fanatic said...

It's something I should have done long ago, Chalupa, if I hadn't neglected the blogroll for so long
