It's League of Extraordinary Bloggers Time again! This weeks topic is a two-parter and it's all in celebration of the League's first Birthday! This insanity has been going on for a full year now... can you believe it?
1. Write about your involvement in the League of Extraordinary Bloggers and recall some of your favorite posts — these could be your own and/or those written by others.So first let me say Happy Birthday League of Extraordinary Bloggers! I'm glad we're not throwing one of those awkward parties where everyone comes and pretends like this little 1 year old who is barely walking is the life of the party. Those are THE WORST.
|How I loathe you.|
I think I've mentioned on here before that Goodwill Hunting 4 Geeks would not exist if it were not for the League. I started this blog specifically so I could join up with this fantastic band of merry madmen (and women) and blah-blah-blah on about the things I love. I started it so I could infiltrate their ranks and prattle on about geeky movies and comic books, and action figures. Mostly to talk about the things I find second hand, and mostly geeky stuff from Goodwill...
|This is my Graceland.|
Some of my favorite topics-gone-by include the very first one I participated in: The League Road Trip. It was that particular topic featured over at the Green Plastic Squirt Gun blog that introduced me to the Bunny Man Bridge.
|I promised myself I wouldn't cry.|
Another personal favorite was the Christmas topic: Wishlists! It really gave me the motivation to think about what would actually be important for me to track down and collect at some point.
|I have a thing for skeletons okay?|
I've discovered a bunch of excellent blogs showing off some of the coolest, drool-worthiest, funniest, and freakiest things I've even seen on the internet. And I'm going to go ahead and lump porn in there too.
So to sum up: The League of Extraordinary Bloggers = Awesome. Happy Birthday!
2. Come up with a list of potential topics you would like to see as future weekly League challenges.
More photo topics! Colors! They've done Green. That was before my time. I think it's time for blue or red or orange or plaid or whatever. More shelf expression! More themed photos in general!
More one word topics! Horror! Puppets! Robots! Childhood! Monkeys! Adventure! Octopii! Kittens! Ninjas!
More memory posts. What's your worst collecting experience? What's the first toy you ever remember? What's your biggest pop culture influence? What is your guiltiest shameful-est indefensible guilty pleasure?
More crossover imagination madness!!! Draft your fantasy superhero team! Draft your fantasy curling team! Draft your fantasy Magnificent Seven! Pick 6 imaginary characters from pop-culture and tell us how they would all die in your fantasy horror movie! Recast your favorite movie with fictional characters from other sources!
More pop-culture discussion! Your favorite movie and why. Your favorite show and why. Your favorite pop-culture role-models... and why.
I've got more but I'm keeping them close to the vest for now.
Here's what some of my fellow Leaguers are doing to celebrate the Birthday of the League!
- Achievements in Gaming
- Whatever I Think Of!
- Fortune and Glory Days
I'll be back soon with more Goodwill Goodies. Until then, Happy Hunting!
Doh! Didn't realize a new topic was posted...ReplyDelete
Great ideas for upcoming assignments. LOL! diabeetus!ReplyDelete
I totally stole that joke... but thanks! I don't envy Brian's task of thinking up a League topic every week.Delete
Those are some great ideas! Also hell of a picture from Goodwill. I have a shitty Salvation Army down the road and no idea where the closest Goodwill is. I envy your Graceland.ReplyDelete
That's not even my pic of Goodwill. I totally scooped it up off the internet. My Goodwill's toy department is tiny and feels sorry for itself. But it so often has great stuff hiding in it!Delete
How about all things ORANGE!ReplyDelete
Or fuschia... or teal... or magenta... or quince... or stucco... or argyle...Delete
Man, did you really just compare me to Wilford Brimley??? I guess I've been compared to worse. ;) Awesome ideas!ReplyDelete
It's secretly how I've imagined you all along.Delete
I'm kidding! I just wanted to poke some fun. I am extremely grateful to you and all you do Brian! Without you there literally would be no Goodwill Geek!
