Announcing the Goldblumathon

I’ve enjoyed participating in numerous blogathons over the past few years, but as much as I’ve enjoyed taking part, I always felt something vital was missing.  Then it dawned on me – not enough Jeff Goldblum.  With that in mind, I’ve made the (foolhardy) decision to host my first blogathon, featuring one of my favorite character actors.  So, how do you get in on the sweet, sweet Goldblum action?  See the guidelines below…

Blogathon Q&A

Q: When does it take place?

A: August 1, 2 and 3.  No need to reserve a specific day.  Just be sure to post sometime within this timeframe.

Q: What do I write about?

A: Anything that strikes your fancy, as long as it’s Jeff Goldblum-related.  Reviews, retrospectives, gifs, dirty limericks, whatever – it’s all fair game.  If you need a refresher on Mr. Goldblum’s many roles, visit his IMDB page.

A: Are there any rules?

Q: I’m not much for rules, but please be sure to link back to this site in your post, so readers can enjoy the other posts.  Other than that, have fun.

Q: I really want to review The Fly, Jurassic Park, etc…

A: No need to “claim” a film title.  No first come, first served here, ‘cause that’s how I roll.  If there’s more than one review of the same flick, that’s fine, although I hope I’ll see reviews on many different Goldblum movies.

Q: How do I sign up?

A: If you’re interested in joining, let me know by commenting in this post, or contact me via Twitter at @barry_cinematic, or email at  Remember to send me your preferred name, website, and subject (i.e., review of _____, bio, etc…)

Q: But I don’t know what I want to write about. What should I do?

A: That’s okay. Take your time.  Just let me know sometime before midnight, August 1st, so I can update the blogathon roster.

Q: How do I let the world know about the Goldblumathon?

A: Use one of banners below (linking A: back to this blog), or feel free to make one of your own.  Invite your friends, acquaintances and enemies!
