The Liebster Award: Part II: The Sequel


Looks like Easter came early. It turns out I’m nominated again for the Liebster Award, twice! At this point, I now have three of these awards. Thank you Silver Screen Serenade way back in February and The Cinematic Frontier for the nominations! Time for round two!

Here are the rules:

  • The bloggers who have been nominated must link back to the person who nominated them.
  • Nominees must answer the eleven questions given to them by the person who nominated them.
  • Those nominated must choose eleven of their favorite bloggers who have less than 200 followers to answer their own set of questions (sidenote: I’m going off of how many followers WordPress tells me you have, though I’m not sure how accurate this is).
  • When you are nominated, you cannot nominate the person who nominated you.

The first part’s done. Now, since I’ve been nominated by two separate people, I’ll answer in the order of who nominated me. Time for the questions.

From Silver Screen Serenade:

1. Favorite vacation spot? Eastern Ohio, right around the West Virginia and Pennsylvania border. Really cool hills (and scary narrow roads to boot) and most of my family is from that area.

2. Favorite color? I’m into an electric blue, like my Nintendo DS that I still have (first model version). Nowadays, I’m leaning toward a mixture of black with lime green accents.

3. Favorite dessert? Cheesecake. I ask for one every birthday (and everyone else in my family). Triple chocolate.

4. Black-and-white movie? Toss-up between Eraserhead and The Elephant Man.

5. Favorite superhero? I’m not as big of a superhero kind of guy like most people. However, I’d go with the Hulk from The Avengers movie.

6. Favorite TV show? Just one? Twin Peaks.

7. Favorite book? 2001: A Space Odyssey. Go figure, right?

8. Favorite Beatles song? “Revolution 9”. I even have a Pandora station based on it. Ironically, it has more Pink Floyd than Beatles songs.

9. Favorite dog breed? Huskies.

10. Favorite beverage? Ginger ale. Can’t go wrong with that.

11. Favorite nerdy franchise? My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I’m not a die-hard fan but I enjoy the subtle references they include in the show ranging from Gone With the Wind to The Big Lebowski. I’ve talked about how one two-part episode eerily syncs with “The Wall” (it’s really worth a watch, regardless if you like the show or not) and how I met the season four co-director.

Now, from The Cinematic Frontier:

1. What is your favorite new release of 2014 so far? The LEGO Movie.It’s the only new release I’ve seen this year.

2. Do you prefer 3D or 2D? 2D. I can handle 3D just fine but wearing a second pair of glasses on top of my regular ones as well as knowing the colors are duller isn’t an ideal viewing experience. Now, for films like Avatar and Gravity, I’ll see them in 3D because it is done well.

3. What is your favorite film from the year you were born? Groundhog Day.

4. Star Trek or Star Wars? I’m going with Star Trek because I don’t have to ask myself which version I’m watching.

5. Which Comic-Con have you most recently attended (or, if you’ve never been to one, which one do you plan or wish to attend)? I’ve never been, but I would love to go to Comic-Con at least once in my life. If I’m ambitious enough, I might cosplay though I’m not sure what character.

6. Blu-ray or streaming? Since I personally don’t own a Blu-ray player or have a subscription service, I can’t really say. If I’m online, I’ll find full movies on YouTube, like Persona but you have to dig deep in order to find them sometimes.

7. Name your favorite ’80s song in a film. “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” from The Breakfast Club.

8. What is your favorite film based on a book? 2001: A Space Odyssey. Yes, there are differences between the book and the film but I still enjoy it.

9. What is your favorite (or least favorite) Nicholas Cage haircut? My favorite is Sailor from Wild at Heart. I haven’t seen that many Nicholas Cage movies so my options are limited.

10. Which film recently made you reflect on it long after the credits were over? Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. I was uncomfortable with how the events played out. I appreciated how much was done with such a low budget but it was still unnerving.

11. Who is your favorite composer? Michael Giacchino. I was introduced to his work from The Incredibles but I never really paid attention until I started watching LOST.

When I was first nominated, I included a list of people (click here to see if you’re on it). If you have not claimed your award then, please do so and answer those questions. If you happen to have been nominated again, answer both sets of questions.

I nominate:

1. Hard Ticket to Home Video

2. Nicholas Conley’s Writings, Readings, and Coffee Addictions

3. jjames reviews

4. Pensive Aspie

5. Jono’s Mind Palace

6. Forgotten Films

7. seventhvoice

8. Lonesome Dreamer

9. LA is Over

10. Keeping It Reel

11. Head in a Vice

Here are your eleven questions:

1. Should older movies be converted for 3D, like The Wizard of Oz?

2. What is your least favorite Disney movie (animated or live-action)?

3. How often should movies be rereleased for home media?

4. What movie would you recommend for a date?

5. What television series would you like to see rebooted?

6. Who is your favorite Sherlock Holmes?

7. What is your answer to life, the universe, and everything?

8. Do androids dream of electric sheep?

9. If you had the choice, would you live forever?

10. Where do you see movie theaters going in the next twenty years?

11. What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Now you know (and knowing is half the battle). Thanks again!

  1. Thank you so very much for the nomination! Eastern Ohio, huh? Interesting.

    Now to answer a couple of your questions:

    2. Least favorite Disney movie? Um. It might be unpopular to say, but I despise Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.

    4. Casablanca.

    5. Carnivale. I want to know how it ends.

    7. 42. (Bonus points if you know the reference.)

      • The reference is originally from Douglass Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series. I want to say it’s book 2 (The Restaurant at the End of the Universe), but don’t quote me on that. Have you read the books?

        And I don’t normally go in for awards, but I do appreciate the recognition (a lot), so I still answer some questions for each person who nominates me. It’s my way of saying I appreciate the acknowledgement, even if I don’t write up a post. 🙂
