My 100th Post!

There've been quite a few "hundreds" flying around here at my blog lately. First there was my top 100 list followed by my bottom 100 and now this: my 100th post. Another landmark for Windmills of My Mind. I wanted to celebrate it with something special. So, I guess this is as good a time as any to let people know that I'll be taking a vacation here shortly. My first "real" vacation (wherein I actually go somewhere for an extended period of time) in a long while. I'll be leaving this Friday to visit friends and family out in Indiana and returning on July 30th. In the interim I do not know how often I will be able to get to a computer so the frequency my blogging will most likely decrease significantly during that 10 days.

I realize there's been a lack of "substantial" posts here ever since the Filmmusic blog-a-thon (essays about something really interesting, provocative, etc) and I apologize for that. Part of the reason is because I've been expending a lot of energy preparing for my upcoming trip and part of it is because... well, I am essentially "saving up" a lot of my mental powers for the entire month of August when "31 Days of Spielberg" will be occurring. I know I'm going to need all of my intellectual abilities for that immense undertaking and I want to be ready. This is part of the reason why I planned my trip such that the Spielberg project launches almost immediately after my return. By that point I think my faculties should be at their full capacity.

I would also like to take the advantage of this 100th post to thank all of the readers who have been kind enough to follow this blog in the nine months since I started, as well as the fellow bloggers who have linked to my site, blessed me with questions and/or comments to my posts, participated in my blog-a-thon and just generally made me feel warm and welcome to the blogosphere. Without readers a blog is nothing more than a personal diary and I am grateful that there are people out there willing "to lend me their ears" to hear what I have to say (or to be more literal and less "literary", who lend me their eyes to read what I have to write).

So, thank you. Here's to the next 100 posts. I hope they're even better than the first hundred. :)

Congrats Damian,

You've got a great blog. Keep it up.

I'm at 238 posts, so you've got some catching up to do. I suggest you cancel that vacation of yours and just write straight.

Well, you know what they say: "It's not the quantity... it's the quality." ;)

I suggest you cancel that vacation of yours and just write straight.

I would, but the tickets are non-refundable.

Windmills is a great site, Damian, and one of my most favored daily stops. Congratulations on reaching the 100 and best wishes for the future.

I'm very excited to see what August will bring here!

And not that it matters, but I just wanted to feel like a bigshot: I'm at 339 posts, just one more than both you and Piper put together :)

(sorry if this is a double post - I couldn't tell if it went through previously!)

Congratulations, Damian. We started our blogs around the same time, and also reached 100 posts around the same time. It is good to have a global community. I have often felt that I was alone with my cinephilia, and the blogosphere has enhanced my appreciation for and experience of cinema. I enjoy reading your blog.

I'm taking a break from work for the first time in ages - to attend the Melbourne International Film Festival full-time. I haven't done it before and I suspect it's going to be like a second job!

Well, thank you very much, Burbanked. I am too.

You stallion! ;)

Thanks, Paul. being a part of the film blogosphere has rejuvenated my passion for cinema in a manner that I haven't experienced since college. It's been a lot of fun so far. I hope it continues to be... for the both of us. :)
