A Survey Of Sorts

This has nothing to do with anything other than my idle curiosity—what first brought you to the Mythical Monkey?

I'm a friend or family member
Internet Movie Database review
search for a photo
search for info or review
an interest in "alternate" Oscars
A link from another blog
brain damage
word of mouth

As always, you can vote in the poll at the top right-hand of the page.

I'm not sure which option to choose. I found you through mrwhoamusanyway, and love old movies, plus I may have a bit of brain damage.

Thank-you Mr. Who. : )

Mythical Monkey said...

We should all be so brain damaged ...

I'm glad you're here. Thanks to Who, indeed.

The google images brought me here after a search for images of old movies... now, i became a fan of you, Mr. Monkey!

Mythical Monkey said...

Thanks for the compliment, mkenobi. And I've added your blog to my blog roll so I can follow along as well!

And I blame Mr. Muleboy as always! -- gahd bless him as we say in the biz.

Mythical Monkey said...

And I blame Mr. Muleboy as always!

Come to think of it, I blame Mister Muleboy, too. I was reading his blog one day and he announced that I was starting a blog about movies and I thought, "I am?" And then I thought, "Well, I guess I could." And then I did.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

You linked to one of my early Oscar pages and I started reading you and got hooked.

I can't claim that it wasn't brain damage, but I know a few of the "gray cells" were damaged in the process. I found your blog by following the link from another site, but I don't recall the name at the moment. I do remember that we became mutual followers of each other's blogspots.

Erik, I can't remember now exactly which post it was that got me to your blog -- could have been the review of Temple Drake -- but as soon as I saw it, I knew I'd hit the mother lode. Must reading for any alternate Oscar buff.

And whistling gypsy, I'm sure glad you found this blog because I've certainly enjoyed reading yours -- both of them. Check 'em out, guys: Whistling Gypsy is a contributing member of The Lady Eve's Reel Life and runs Distant Voices, Flickering Shadows all alone, I do believe. The Lady Eve writes mostly about film noir, and the latter has a nice two-part essay on the lost silent films of Josef von Sternberg.

Check it out.
