I’ve been nominated for a “LIEBSTER award” !

When I woke up yesterday [before work at 8am] I noticed my iPod going off saying I have a notification. Sure enough, I had a comment notification from WordPress. [from none other than this individual; THANKS AGAIN!] It read that I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award . Not knowing what it truly means, I did some research. really is so I did some research before starting this post and came across some info. according to Wordingwell, the Liebster Award exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It has a set of rules [so like Fight Club?], and that you’re meant to follow them. by doing so, you agree to send the ‘award’ to 11other people – so long as they have less than 200 followers. After thanking the person who ‘nominated’ you, you have to answer 11 questions that were posted by the ‘nominator’ and then nominate 11 other people to do the same [with your own questions]

So let’s get on with Tidlidim‘s questions! This ought to be an interesting one, so here goes everything! Please note: the questions will be in bold, and my response will be italicized.

Ready, Set, Go!

1) How would you describe yourself in one sentence?

“weird.” I’d assume that much was obvious.. haha!

2) What’s the worst thing you’ve ever eaten?

Surf Clams. I’ll try anything once – and in this case: once is enough.

3) What’s the best movie you’ve seen this year?

“Guardians Of The Galaxy”. no question; read my reasons why it’s fantastic here!

4) List 3 things that are on your bucket list.

put simply; have a family in the future, have my own ‘basement theater’ & meet Stan Lee.

5) What’s the naughtiest thing you’ve done as a kid?

I totally cheated on a math test in grade 2 and I [and the one I cheated from] were the only ones who got it right. got detention for the week for that one.

6) What’s the item you carry around with you most of the time?

especially when I’m ‘on call’ for work – I have to have my phone on me almost all the damn time.

7) Could you live without the internet? In what ways would your life be different?

honestly, I feel terrible for saying it, but I doubt I could survive without it. I’m just so used to having it at my disposal that without it, I would feel confused. If I didn’t have it though, I think life would be almost simpler, and even that hurts to admit.

8) What’s the best photo you’ve ever taken? Or if you don’t use a camera, what’s the best photo someone has taken of you?

I’m only mentioning this one cause I forgot all about it until I found it on my hard-drive. [I’m the guy on the right] FOLLOW THE GUY ON THE FAR LEFT HERE!

9) What is the thing you’re most afraid of? (physical things)

Clowns. I’ve covered this topic a ton.. next question, please!

10) You’re an actor/actress and you get the role of your dreams. Who would you be?

I always liked the idea of a superhero who has recently retired from ‘superhero-ism’ due to PTSD. I think it’s an interesting concept that should be explored in film. So to answer the question, I’d want to be a superhero, preferably Spider-Man – Superman is a nerd.


So now that I’ve answered all 11 questions – which were harder than I thought they’d be – I’m now supposed to nominate some people to do the same [hopefully I even know 11 people]

The people I’d like to nominate are the following:

movies, film, and flix

watch me watch this

retcon poet

house of geekery

the nerds of color

one life, recorded

lifelifedeathdeath

Basically, Emily

daves corner of the universe

ink. brush. paper

journey into awesome


Your task is simple, to answer my following eleven questions [which obviously, because it’s me, will revolve around films], and pass your own onto 11 people of your choice. good luck!

THE QUESTIONS:

What is your favorite film of all time?

least favorite film of all time?

who is one actor that everyone loves but you hate?

Favorite genre of film?

If you were to write your own script/story line for a film, what would the film be about?

continuing off the last question, who would you want to star?

Favorite film from the last 10 years?

which actor would you kill to meet?

What film has the best score, in your opinion?

What’s a trope in a movie you can’t stand?

are you following me on Facebook if you aren’t already? [find the page here] why or why not?


THANKS FOR READING [and once again, thanks to Tidlidim for the nomination!]

WELCOME TO WARRENISWEIRD !

So here we are: the first post of warrenisweird. I was actually planning to make this blog for a while now, but never really [unfortunately] found the time – that or I would put it off for some stupid reason. Either way, it has begun. Assuming you didn’t read the “about the author” page in the menu, I’m Warren and I’m pretty weird. I like horror movies, cartoons, comic books and even enjoy writing film reviews over on Letterboxd.

Now, this post will hopefully be kept relatively shorter than others will be since it is the first [of many] post. But, because it’s the first post — I thought I’d share just a few of the [many] ideas I plan on ‘blogging’ about on here on warrenisweird:


~ deepbreath.

#1] personal ‘adventures’ in my own life : the main focus of this blog. by this, I mean I will be talking about what I – Warren – am up to in my own life every so often, sounds boring, I know; but I like the ideal of writing in part as an almost ‘journal’.

#2] film and ‘geekery’ : this one is a bit tricky since this is what I wrote about on my ‘original‘ blog [found here]. I say this is ‘tricky’ because I will be talking about filmography on here as well, but not as much as I did on the last blog; I will be talking about my thoughts on films as well [I may write short reviews on here but full film reviews will remain on my Letterboxd account: found here]

#3] occasionally, I will do top 5, top 10, etc lists/challenges : every so often, [depending on my work schedule] there will be top 5 [or even 10] lists for various things, such as ‘Warren’s top 5 horror films’ or ‘Warren’s top 10 childhood cartoons’ . [and obviously – many, many other lists of sorts]


so there it is, a [fairly drawn out] welcome post to warrenisweird. I will be posting as often as I can, but with a fairly busy job – this can be troublesome at times. Catch me on my next post, which will be everyone’s favorite, the infamous: ‘5 things about the author!’
