What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
In honor of International Cat Day on March 17th, this blog-a-thon is being directed by the official Dubsism house-cat, Surprise. She came by her moniker from the day she ran out from under a bush in our back yard and adopted Mrs. J-Dub and me.
Surprise! We had a new cat, and the name stuck. That’s why I picked International Cat Day to mark such an occasion.
As such, this blog-a-thon is all about films with a feline theme. But, this needed to be more than being about just cats; it needed a “twist.” In keeping with the “Surprise” aspect, the fun part of this blog-a-thon is if you don’t have a strong feeling to write about something “feline,” and if you feel lucky, you can send me a particular an actor or a genre of film, and I will have Surprise the Cat pick a movie for you. To broaden the “Surprise” experience, what you get will be totally random; it may not have anything to do with a feline there at all. In other words…Surprise, I got a cat, and Surprise…you got a topic.
You can pick any movie and actor (as long as the topic fits the feline format), or like I said, you can let Surprise the Cat pick a movie for you. But if you are picking your own topic, both Surprise and I ask for no duplicates on the choice of film and no previously-posted material, since the field has such a large available CAT-alog.
Other than that, it’s all up to you…or Surprise!
Regardless of whether you have a subject, or you want Surprise the Cat to send you one, you can send all your details to us below!
After you’ve sent us your subject, once your piece is published, send me the link either in the contact form above or by email at email@example.com and I’ll take care of the rest.
For future reference, you’ll also want to keep tabs on my Blog-a-thon page because that’s not only where projects are going to be announced for 2019 and beyond, but that’s also where you can see every blog-a-thon in which Dubsism has been a participant.
And if all that weren’t enough to convince you to join this blog-a-thon, how can you resist such an adorable little fuzz-bag who has already been immortalized in a pair of socks?
