I'm a LAMB!

NEW YORK—If I had any doubts as to whether my blog had been accepted into The Large Association of Movie Blogs (LAMB)—a site that has, so far, collected and highlighted more than 750 film blogs—after I finally got around to applying in early October, they were erased when I got an email on Sunday that directed me to this link:

Should I consider this "moving up the ranks in the film blogosphere"? (At the very least, it's farther than I've gotten at The Wall Street Journal so far...)

When applying for inclusion into LAMB, I was asked a bunch of questions about my site; it seems that, in the aforementioned post, those questions and my responses were included. I think it offers a fairly good mission statement of sorts for My Life, at 24 Frames Per Second.

Selections below:

What is the main focus of your site?
My personal explorations in cinema and cinephilia, with occasional detours into theater, music, literature and the news events of the day. For me, life and art are always intersecting.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
If nothing else, I see my blog as my way of not only sharing my love for cinema, but also nurturing and furthering dialogue about the arts. Also, I do use it to promote my writing outside of the blog; it is my life, after all.

Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
I am absolutely all about interactivity, and to that extent I always try to continue the conversation after someone leaves a comment in my comments sections.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Playtime, Vertigo, Fallen Angels
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that's not listed above.
I am a strong believer in the idea that all film criticism is at least somewhat personal in nature, however objective a tone a review might try to take. That is why I am unafraid to foreground the personal in some of my film reviews/blog posts—and that is why I think the title of my blog fits the content best.
