Just a reminder Desert Island DVDs is coming soon, a week on Sunday to be precise.  All participating bloggers will be listing their eight movies to be stranded on a desert island with.

Narrowing a list down to just eight movies is really tough as I am finding at the moment.  It’s not just a matter of picking your favourite eight movies, the movies you can watch over and over again may not be your all time favourites as and as mentioned by Kai from The List

There is still time to get involved take a look at here and here for information and leave a note below if you are interested.  And if you were wondering the posters are a sneak preview of just a few of the movies that have been selected.

Desert Island DVDs Update

I have already emailed everyone who have confirmed they intend to take part. If you missed the email or if anyone else wants to join in here are the details:

Everyone publishes their own list on their own Blog. As well as my own list (on a separate post) I will publish a list of all the participants with a link to their list. Please include a link to this list, the link will be: http://wp.me/prVbF-17I  (if you try and use it now it won’t work, but trust me it will on the 11th).

We are publishing on Sunday 11th April at 11 am BST (that’s 10am Zulu, I will confirm the time for other time zones closer to the time if anyone is struggling). To give me time to set up my part you will need to send me a link no later than Friday 9th April.

Creating a link before publishing is easy on wordpress using the auto-publish feature. Anyone who needs help with this let me know. If you other blog publishing applications and are struggling let me know and I will see what I can do.

This is a list of confirmed participants. If I have missed anyone of or anyone else who is interested there is still time to join in: 

  • Fandango Groovers Movie Blog (Me!)
  • Thanks again to everyone taking part. And thanks to Kai who has already sent me his link.

    Do you want to get involved in a multi blog movie event? All you need is a blog (or access to post on somebody else’s blog) It doesn’t even have to be a movie blog.

    The idea is a variation on the radio program Desert Island Discs: For those who don’t know the show has been running on the BBC for nearly 70 years. Guests are invited to imagine themselves cast away on a desert island with only eight pieces of music to listen to.  Being a movie blog obviously we are having a twist on the idea. Simple pick the eight DVD’s that if you were stranded on a desert island (don’t ask how you would play them) you could happily watch over and over again. For some people this will be their favourite movies for others it will be subtly different. 

    The blog doesn’t have to follow any particular format; it can just be a list with no explanation, a review of the movies, an explanation of why you chose them, or anything else you want to do. I was thinking of picking a date next month for everyone to publish. If you are part of a blog with more than one contributor you all select your own list or you can work together on a collective one, the choice is yours. I have sent out a handful of invites, a few people have expressed an interest and the following have confirmed they are onboard: *(I am particularly pleased to have Tara onboard as hers isn’t a movie blog. Check it out if you haven’t seen it).

    Anyone else who is interested in taking part or if you have already responded and I have missed you off the list above (sorry) let me know by leaving a message below.  None bloggers are also welcome, leave a message below and I will email you back with how you can get involved. 

    All blogs will be posted on the same day next month date TBA shortly.
