It’s Time To Join The “M. Emmet Walsh” Movie Blog-A-Thon!
A while back, I was honored with being allowed to participate in a blog-a-thon which was dedicated to the “character actor.” I had so many ideas for that they’ve spilled over into their own events. My favorite guy in this category is George Kennedy, which is why his career was my contribution to that project. The question became “Who’s next?”
Roger Ebert once said “any movie with M. Emmet Walsh in it couldn’t be all bad.” Suffice it to say, I’ve never seen anything in which Walsh wasn’t worthwhile. So, why not Walsh? March 22nd marks his 84th birthday, which seems to be the perfect time for a celebration of all things Walsh.
When I say “all things,” I mean just that. This guy has a career spanning half-a-century, and his IMDb page is an exercise in mega-scrolling. Between television and movies, there so much great material to cover that there’s no reason not to join today! Anything Walsh-related is “fair game.” Since there is so much potential material, I’m asking for no previously published, but will allow up to two entries per topic.
In order to help you get them while their hot, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. There’s a ton of tremendous reading, as well as plenty of great blog-a-thons coming in the next few months which you can still join, such as:
- The “Surprise The Cat” Blog-A-Thon: In honor of International Cat Day, this blog-a-thon is being directed by the official Dubsism house-cat, who happens to be named Surprise from the day she ran out from under a bush in our back yard and adopted us. Obviously, this is about films with a feline theme, but the “surprise” aspect is if you feel lucky, you can tell us an actor or a genre of film, and Surprise the Cat will send you a movie to write about.
