Asides - Dardos Award.

I am so honored to have received a Dardos Award, bestowed upon me by my favorite blogger, The Self Styled Siren, who herself was bestowed the award by two other eminent film bloggers, Flickhead and Glenn Kenny .

So what is the Dardos Award?

Here's the purpose: "The Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web."

And in an inclusive break from the award being solely focused on writing, the Siren saw fit to include those whose blogs are primarily image oriented, but fit the overall criteria.

There are rules, however:
1) Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
2) Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgement, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.

And now to the 5 bloggers who have my attention at each new post, I pass along the Dardos Award.

Greenbriar Picture Shows
- Always informative, filled with images and insight on film and all the attendant publicity, behind the scenes looks, and more.

Vitaphone Varieties - A great resource for early film and the music from the films and of the period. Great images as well.

The Shelia Variations - I don't know how she finds the time, but Shelia's blog covers everything from film to literature, the arts, her personal hits and misses and anything else that comes to mind - always entertaining. BTW - doing the blogging thing since 2003.

Thrilling Days of Yesteryear
- Film, a TV show or Old Time Radio, TDOY has it covered.

Hell on Frisco Bay
- If you want dark, Hell on Frisco is the place for reviews on Noir and "Noirish" films. Lighter fare is also well served.

I really appreciate this honor- and the discovery of a truly fine blog. Unfortunately I'm having trouble finding the time to find people who haven't already been named and pass on the award. So while I may not put up a post myself, know that it feels good for me to be singled out.
