Liscensed To Blog: The James Blog-A-Thon

For the next few days we honor the longest standing franchise in film history. A franchise that has seen its Pussy Galores and its Doctor Goodheads. It's Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd and Jaws. It's Aston Martin's and its Alfa Romeos. Its Scaramanga and its Sir Hugo Drax. And it's certainly seen a lot of Bonds. Like our very own sister, we love our Bond movies and we've seen it through its ups and downs. And now we must celebrate all that is Bond. Let me have our reviews, your thoughts, your memories, whatever. Just let me have them. Shaken, not stirred, of course.

I will list the links as I receive them.

Just e-mail me or post them in the comments and I will link.

SamuraiFrog said...

I have a not so good entry here.

Adam said...

Here's my contribution...

PIPER said...

Thanks guys, I have them up now.

Adam Ross said...

I just posted my contribution. And James actually drove an Alfa Romeo, not an Alfa Romero. The Alfa Romero was the car that ran on human brains, and moaned with the sound of death when you turned the key.

PIPER said...

See, this is what happens when you have your 10 year old ghost write on your blog.

Reel Whore said...

Here's my first Bond related post. I plan to have two more coming by Friday.

SamuraiFrog said...

I've got another post up about Warhead/Thunderball.

Hey! My verification word is CONAN!

PIPER said...


Thanks samuraifrog. I'll post it up now.

Deborah said...

How about a whole James Bond blog?

Daniel said...

I'd love to jump in here with my appreciation of The Spy Who Loved Me!

Reel Whore said...

Hey Piper,
Got another one for you:

PIPER said...

I'll add it.

Much like Reel Whore, I too dig the Henchmen.

My Favorite Henchmen

Megan said...


Jeremy said...

OK, I've taken the bair too.

Jeremy said...

Bair? I meant bait, of course.

PIPER said...

Filmchris and Megan,

You're up. Thanks


I can't seem to link up to your site.

It might be my connection. I'll give it a shot again this afternoon.

Jeremy said...

Working here ... and thanks anyway.

PIPER said...

I'm on the road and having spotty internet access. But I've linked up now. Sorry about the wait.

MC said...

I revised a list discussing all of the Bond themes to include Quantum of Solace and posted it as a Friday Favorite

Megan said...

I'm not totally caught up yet and I've been wimping out on leaving comments, but I am having so much fun reading all these! Cheers, Piper! Thanks for hosting!

Tom the Dog said...

Here's my defense of On Her Majesty's Secret Service:

Kelly Sedinger said...

I have a post about the music of the Bond films here! Thanks for the Blog-a-Thon; as I noted in my earlier Bond post, every time I learn of a Blog-a-Thon on a topic I can post about, the thing's over already.

Reel Whore said...

Here's what I think is my last Bond post. Practically a dissertation on Craig's Casino Royale.

Daniel said...

My second and last post is an appreciation of old Bond and a bit of an attack on Quantum of Solace:

Thanks for hosting!

PIPER said...

I just got the last batch up. My apologies for getting to them late, I've been flying all afternoon and just got back.

Anonymous said...

A bit of comic relief from all the serious attacks made on Quantum of Solace.

Short, but sweet.

Anonymous said...

Is this still on? If so, Rod's got an entry:

PIPER said...
