The Girl Who Loves Horror has given your humble narrator the Versatile Blogger Award! Alex extends a big thank you and asks his friends to visit her fine blog where she writes on all things horror: well, at least the imaginary kind.

To accept the award there are a few prerequisites: first, I must aver 7 true statements about myself. Second, I must thank the kind blogger who nominated me (see first paragraph!). The third requirement is to nominate 15 other blogs and contact them...which is no easy task: there are so many fine writers with interesting and intelligent perspectives that I'm bound to leave many out.

About Alex:

  1. I am a certified Victim Advocate and investigator employed by the Local District Attorney and a trained Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Counselor.
  2. I never watch “true crime” shows on TV.
  3. I have a little black and white kitty named Stella Kowalski.
  4. My fantasy is to attend film school and focus upon editing…while still paying my mortgage.
  5. I’m an non-theist.
  6. I have a complete collection of original "New Trend" EC Comics: Vault of Horror, Tales from the Crypt, Crime Suspenstories, Weird Science, et al.
  7. The first film I remember seeing is Bruce Lee’s ENTER THE DRAGON at the Drive-In when I was 6 years old: I’ve been hooked ever since.

I pass along th Versatile Blogger Award to (in no particular order):

  1. Watching Hammer
  2. Hammer and Beyond
  3. The Peter Cushing Collection
  4. She Blogged by Night
  5. Pencil and Ink
  6. The Ludovico Technique
  7. Mondo 70: A Wild World of Cinema
  8. Cinemascope
  9. Where Danger Lives
  10. Cin*Eater
  11. Gone Cinema Poaching
  12. The Most Beautiful Fraud in the World
  13. B Movies and Beyond
  14. Little Miss Zombie
  15. Vamplit's Library


  1. Hi Alex. Great blog. And thanks for thinking of me! Appreciate it.

  2. No true crime love? You won't like my latest blog! Appy-polly-loggies!

  3. It's only because I live it every day: I've been involved in the prosecution of hundreds of violent crimes and a handful of homicides...and need a break sometimes. It's the structure of "soap opera" television that I don't like, mystery/noir/suspense/ films are some of my favorites!

    Good luck on or new blog! if you ever have a general question (no legal advice please) about the reality of the legal process, though it differs greatly from county to state to federal etc...just post it here on my blog:)
