Your Voices is a simple concept created to encourage conversation and opinions between movie lovers. It works like this: I throw out a certain topic or question and I’ll take time to make my case or share my opinions. Then it’s time for Your Voices. Head to the comments section and let fellow readers and moviegoers know your thoughts on the topic for that day!
We all love movies, right? I mean that’s probably why you’re reading this right now. Sometimes our love for movies goes beyond simply venturing to the theaters or renting a Blu-Ray. And sometimes our enthusiasm can be seen in the collectibles or the cool assortment of movie related memorabilia we have. It could be as simple as a t-shirt or as personal as an autograph. That is certainly the case with me. I have some movie related stuff that may not be cool to everyone but they are near and dear to my heart.Trying to pick my favorite among my movie stuff was pretty tricky. It’s not that I have a bunch of it. It’s just that I love them all. I decided to go with something a bit odd but a bit sentimental as well. It’s my Humphrey Bogart life-sized cardboard standup (please, don’t laugh). Frequent readers of K&M probably know that I have a pretty strong affection for Bogart and his films. There is a funny story behind this particular piece of Bogart. Twenty years ago while on my honeymoon I noticed this standup at a movie memorabilia shop. I had to have it. Bogart made the trip with my wife and me and now he stands right next to our bed at home. What a tolerant and understanding wife! So now it’s time for YOUR VOICES.
