Recommending Friends and Films ...

Friday is "Follow Friday" on Twitter. I'm bringing the same concept to blogging. I need more interesting people to follow since many of my friends have stopped blogging. Recommend some peeps for me to read, and I'll do the same for you.

I recommend  AMORRIS for yummy recipes and local coupon deals, and It's All Happening for fashion and green living tidbits. Check out Reading and Ruminations for book reviews by a girl who is, quite frankly, borderline obsessed with books.

When I get the time, I promise to comment on some of the great films I've watched recently, including Black Swan, Pirate Radio and You Don't Know Jack. The latter, especially, struck a chord with me.

As another mini-resolution, I'm trying to watch all the Best Oscar nominated films before the Oscars on February 27. Of course, since I'm poor, I'll probably end up only seeing the ones already on video. I have The Kids Are All Right, The Social Network and Winter's Bone queued up to come next on Netflix, so I'll at least have seen six of the 10 films by the ceremony, having already seen Black Swan, Inception and Toy Story 3.

The Nominees:
  • Black Swan 
  • The Fighter
  • Inception
  • The Kids Are All Right
  • The King's Speech
  • 127 Hours
  • The Social Network
  • Toy Story 3
  • True Grit
  • Winter's Bone
What great films have you seen lately?


    1. Awwww that's too sweet. I do need to do my Friday update - i think someone's getting a shout out.

    2. Thanks for the shout out! I'll be back with recommendations as soon as I finish cleaning up the mess I made baking tonight.

    3. Borderline obsessed, huh? I think I'll take that as a compliment. Compared to some of my other book-blogger friends, I'm amateur level, though.

      At any rate, thank you for the lovely mention.
