I'm growing like weeds!

Something new to get ridiculously excited about…

I've begun writing multiple-choice movie quizzes for AMC's website. They are not BQT-branded (yet at least), but yes, I am being paid. And as a contracted employee of AMC, I believe I'm guaranteed at least three martini lunches with the cast of Mad Men.

The first one is a twist on an old BQT favorite, the "Retranslated" gimmick: I've used a free Internet translation program to convert movie quotes into a foreign language, then back into English. Thrill with delight here.

More of these to come. Look here for updates, of course.

(The photo above has no relevance, other than the fact that it's from a movie—an American movie classic, in fact—and it rocks.)
