Time marches on: Comet’s Anniversary

I’m as bad as a cinema husband. I forgot my own one year anniversary!

“Comet Over Hollywood” turned a year old on May 17.

Technically, it was created in April 2009, as I shared in a post about the blog’s namesake back in April.  However, I only wrote five posts from April 2009 to May 2010.

In 2009, the blog was me reviewing movies I watched. The only problem is that when I give a plot summary, I am terrible about giving a blow-by-blow summary, I also watch way too many movies to catch up.  This turns into a 9,000-word summary that is tiring for me to write and for you to read.

Though forgotten, Comet’s anniversary was still better than Ida’s 8 year wedding anniversary in “They Drive By Night” (1940)

Last summer I reinvented the blog by trying to think of clever viewpoints on movies and how film has drastically affected my life.

I started “Comet Over Hollywood” to share with others how I felt about movies. I knew there were other film fans that related to my interest. I also hoped in a small way I could help reform the haters of black-and-white movies.

I have to admit, I am really proud of “Comet.” I never imagined that I would meet so many fantastic film fans and get so much support from a community.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make “Comet Over Hollywood” a pleasure to share.
