What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

The “Surprise the Cat” Movie Blog-A-Thon Is Here!

Today’s the day! 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 to keep things fun, we made this more than about being about just cats; it needed a “twist.” In keeping with the “Surprise” aspect, the fun part of this blog-a-thon was if you didn’t have a strong feeling to write about something “feline,” and if you felt lucky, you could send us a particular an actor or a genre of film, and Surprise the Cat would pick a movie for you.

To broaden the “Surprise” experience, what you got was 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.

Now that you get the premise, enjoy some great classic movie reading brought to you by an adorable little fuzz-bag who has already been immortalized in a pair of socks.
