So! Once Joe uploads his pending review of some Indiana Jones games, the Indy theme week (ssh longer than a week) will be over. YOU WILL BE SAD Sad

However! What did you, the fine, loyal, 20-something strong in number readership of LTM think of dedicating updates to one topic? Never again? Ideas for future themes? Speak your mind, or forever be subject to a year-long theme of nothing but Darth Phenom articles and/or a Dan retrospective.

I had a notion of doing themes based on specific actors today, so basically reviews of different movies featuring one actor, and then maybe opinion articles about the actor himself, or perhaps an article about something he did in public. Like I do believe we actually, quite some time ago, did an Arnold Schwarzenegger one. Of course this would be easier to pull off with an actor everyone has seen a movie of.

It could also just be public figures in general. Like, I could both write about Bjork's movie, Dancer in the Dark, as well as write about that time she beat up a reporter...although, actually, I'm not sure what else there is to say on that except that it was very funny. I've also seen a shitload of Audrey Tautou movies. I could write about a bunch a dose.

So, yeah, people themes, basically. This would mean you'd need to find a bajillion photos of the same person to use for all the different buttons on the site! Not sure how you could change the main site logo to reflect a specific person...BUT THAT'S YOUR JOB!

I like the prospect of a theme every so often as it eliminates the ?What the hell should I write about?? problem that jumps up from time to time. Of course I don?t have any suggestions at the moment and I?m just posting this so I can contribute to the discussion. However, it seems my contribution is nothing but now you know the rest of the back-story. Shocked

Yes, themes are a grande idea. They might even transfer over here to the forum and give us something to talk about here. I also have no ideas...or I'm too lazy to think at the moment, but I stand by the prospect of having weekly themes.

Feedback time!

What would y'all think of, starting July 4, an AMERIKAH theme? This would revolve around 50 reviews (obviously not updated daily), one per state. Examples! My old New Orleans review covers Louisiana, one of Joe's E3 reviews covers California, we'll write new stuff...movies, games, anything to do with the states. Ja? Oder nein?

It?s an interesting idea but would require a bit of research seeing as some states (New York, California, Illinois, Florida) are more exposed than others (Nebraska, Delaware) making it harder to find anything worth mentioning about them, media-wise.

I don?t know, I suppose it could all work out if we decide on who gets what state. Also, not that I needed one but a reason to review Robocop (Michigan) is always welcome.

I don't have anything HUGELY against this theme except that it reminds me of Sufjan Stevens, and I find him twatish.

Also, as I've mentioned don't except a huge amount of new content from me until, like, September probably. But I'll probably be okay to do a few things...

I like America, she's got a nice personality and returns my calls.

This sounds like an interesting project. Reminds me a bit of first grade, really, except this time with more adult content. I had to do this project on CA, which was kinda boring. Hmmm...
