Movie Trivia from the Directory


If you haven't tried profile page browsing yet, I encourage you to give it a try. It's quite a different experience than browsing blogs. It sometimes seems that profile pages can provide a more personal and immediate glimpse into a blogger's mind than their blog can. If you want to learn more, their blog or blogs are only a click away.


A lot of bloggers list their favorite movies. One movie that I keep seeing in the lists is "A Knight's Tale". This surprised me. I haven't seen the movie, but I remember that it got some pretty poor reviews. I may have to see it. It's funny how a movie can be judged harshly by the critics, but still find a place in the hearts of a lot of fans. I saw some previews and I seem to recall that the music wasn't authentic for the time period. I write an early music blog, so I tend to pick up on subtleties like that.


Another blogger listed "The Deer Hunter" and "Bambi" in the same list as a joke, but I can't remember who. If you find it, maybe you can leave a comment.


I list these example to demonstrate how entertaining and educational profile pages can be. I feel like an archaeologist who is sifting through the foundations of modern culture. I'm looking for insights and discoveries that I can't find any where else.


If you come across anything that is interesting or unusual, please feel free to leave a comment about it.

Funnily enough, I was just compelled by forces unknown to blog about the essential object of a blog: authenticity. I too find more information and more joy in the profiles than the blogs themselves.

And if you decide to go read the article, you will know why I'm not asking to be placed into your directory- that's not very authentic.

Best,
Truman
