Welcome, friends, both those of you visiting from my other blog, as well as those of you who stumbled upon this spot looking for Bond or Quantum of Solace info.
The only thing you need to know about me is that I love James Bond movies. I mean I really, really really LOVE them. For my entire adult life (editor's note--"adult?" as if!), I have taken the day of the latest Bond premiere off from school or work, so I can spend the entire day wallowing in the goodness that is Bond. I'll see the flick 3 times that first day. That's how much I freakin' love Bond. I know, I'm not healthy at all, am I?
You know what one of my favorite Bond memories is? At the debut of Goldeneye, I'm in the theater, waiting for the lights to dim. Sitting in the same row as I am, a few seats down, is a man in an expensive suit, and he's very clear that he's playing hooky from work just to catch the first showing of the latest Bond. Our eyes met, and we just nodded at each other...a mutual acknowledgement of our membership in the brotherhood (or sisterhood...we're all inclusive) that is Bond.
So, what am I going to blog about?
I'm not going to be a news site, or a rumor site (unless something amazing pops up). No celebrity gossip or daily updates.
No, my mission is simple: dealing with one Bond film per week, up until the debut of QoS. I've got it timed out, and if I include the non-Eon entries (the TV Casino Royale, the "comedy" Casino Royale, and the "renegade" Never Say Never Again, once per week takes us right up to the debut.
Sometimes I'll live-blog while watching the movie. Sometimes I'll have erudite essays (editor's note--I'll believe that when I see it). Sometimes I'll just go on a nitpick fest. I don't really have a solid plan, except to, once a week, just plain wallow in a Bond movie.
There will be other posts, also about once per week, wherein I'll rank the various elements of the Bond movies..best villain, best Bond girl, best gadgets...all my own very warped opinion, of course.
So join me as I try to work off the giddy energy that's building as QoS slowly approaches. Comments and discussions are always welcome, as long as no one goes SPECTRE on us.
Tomorrow (Friday) we'll start in earnest, as i tackle the first (and shortest) of the Casino Royales. I'll bring the Mountain Dew-flavored Doritos.
