My 5 Favorite Christmas Movies (Quick Reviews)

 

The Christmas season is a ton of fun and it’s a time when people get together, so of course, it has its own movie genre.  I’m no stranger to Christmas movies, so I decided I’d make a list of my five favorites.  Not the BEST, not even the ones I THINK are the best, just the ones I currently enjoy the most.

What are some of your favorite Christmas movies?  There’s so many to choose from!  Let me know in the comments – I’d love to get some suggestions to add to my watch list.

Why I’m NOT Seeing #JusticeLeague

Here’s the new episode of Quick Reviews, a quick essay on why I decided not to see Justice League in the theater. Warner Bros doesn’t want you to see it – they blocked it from YouTube – it’s the only episode that’s ever been blocked! First, they dropped a copyright claim, which, while ridiculous (reviews and essays are clearly covered by Fair Use and the video is less than six minutes long and doesn’t center around any one of their films, so it can’t be a footage issue) at least makes sense because YouTube policy allows them to collect ad revenue from said video (which is also dumb because I just don’t have much of an audience), but then they blocked the video entirely – probably because of my negative review of the DCEU.

PLEASE VOTE: should I turn off the snow?

As you may have noticed, it’s snowing on the website.  I can turn this on or off, but I can’t modify it in any other way, which is a drag, because I feel it’s falling too fast.  (I’d also prefer it blew in front of the background but behind the content… but whatever.)  The point is, should the snow stay or go?  (For the month of December, that is.)  VOTE NOW!   Read the rest of this entry

CreativeJamie.com 2013 statistics in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for CreativeJamie.com.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. CreativeJamie.Com was viewed about 47,000 times in 2013. If this site were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Why You Should Like The CreativeJamie.com Facebook Page

creative-jamie-on-facebook

Facebook is one of those things I have gone back and forth, changed my stance or all together reevaluated my feelings for.  It’s fun to share, but there are privacy concerns.  I like keeping in touch, but I don’t want to spill my guts for everybody on the internet.

As far as I can tell, the current privacy controls at Facebook are pretty good – nevertheless, I removed nearly all of the pictures from my personal account.  I do log in on the personal side to see what folks are up to (probably 1 to 2 times a week), but I don’t post much there.

The CreativeJamie.com Facebook Page is another matter entirely.

The purpose of the CreativeJamie.com Facebook Page is two fold:  first, to alert you to new posts on CreativeJamie.com; second, to pass along stuff I’ve found on the net that I think is worth a look or a read.  While I would consider posting such links here… eh, it’s kind of a pain in the butt to do so, where as at Facebook (as you well know), posting a link takes only seconds.

I hope you will ‘like’ (join, whatever the vernacular is on Facebook these days) the CreativeJamie.com Facebook page.  It’s a great way to let me know that you like the site – and if you do like the writing here, you’ll probably like the stuff I find on other sites.

CreativeJamie.com Facebook Page FAQ

What sort of links get posted to the CreativeJamie.com Facebook Page?
The newest postings from CreativeJamie.com as well as other links from sites that I think are of note.

What sort of non-CreativeJamie.com links get posted to the CreativeJamie.com Facebook Page?
Again, it’s a catch-all for pages I like.  I have my usual haunts on the net:  Cracked, the New York Times, baseball sites – but I wander off into the Ethernet yonder every once and a while, and sometimes, peeps send me stuff to peep (see what I did there?!? [smiley face] ), and when it’s quality, I like to pass it along.  As with outbound links here at CreativeJamie.com, the same applies to The CreativeJamie.com Facebook Page.

I’m not going to hijack your news feed.
You don’t have to worry about that – I’m not going to go all Conan O’Brien on you (although I do love me some Conan); in fact, I doubt there would be a post every day of any sort – new CreativeJamie.com blog or otherwise.

Should I ‘like’ CreativeJamie.com or friend you personally?
It’s really your call, but it makes more sense to ‘like’ CreativeJamie.com.  Friend-ing me on Facebook will no doubt be both  a boring and confusing experience.
