Happy Blogiversary to Me!
One year ago today, I hit the “Publish” button on this site and, voila! With that, Shadows and Satin joined the blogiverse, providing me with a forum for sharing my thoughts about one of my life’s passions — classic film. Boy, time sure flies when you’re having fun!
I want to take this opportunity to thank the Senior Writer of The Dark Pages, my pal Kristina over at Speakeasy, who first suggested that I start a blog, as well as express my appreciation to the many awesome veteran bloggers who have served as my inspiration over the last year, and offer my most sincere gratitude for all of you who took the time to read my words. Having this blog has been a joy, and I hope that it’s around for a long time to come.
To celebrate my one-year blogiversary, I’m serving up a nod to my very first post, which consisted of a quote from the 1947 film noir feature Kiss of Death. Today, I give you a great quote from one of my favorite actresses, Joan Crawford, from The Damned Don’t Cry (1950):
“Don’t talk to me about self-respect. Self-respect is something you tell yourself you’ve got when you’ve got nothing else. The only thing that counts is that stuff you take to the bank – that filthy buck that everybody sneers at but slugs to get.”
Incidentally, if you haven’t seen this noir, make a point to check it out.
You know why.
