It is rare for any studio to get that perfect mix of adult and kiddie humor but Dreamworks has managed to come very close with Penguins of Madagascar which is comedic gold on the silver screen. Eric Darnell sits in the drivers seat in what is his fourth time directing a Madagascar feature and he is joined by Simon J. Smith (Bee Movie, Far Far Away Idol) in his first foray into this world. This first penguin sequel, which does not include any other characters from the franchise apart from peripherally, has the three actors who bring the four Arctic birds to life and some other very impressive names in supporting roles.
Wow! I woke up this morning and after a long debate on whether I really wanted to get up or not, I finally rolled out of bed. The first thing I do in the mornings is pop the old kettle on for my caffeine fix (aka getting my heart started) and the second thing is to check the internet.
This of course entails checking: E-mail, my blog, YouTube channel, sites I contribute too and the daily news; I also check my “physical” mail.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I saw that my blog now has over 400 followers!
The words pleased, chuffed, excited and grateful spring immediately to mind! I always go all “Sally Field” when I hit a landmark like this; “You like me, you really like me!” Sniffing back tears and gazing at my computer screen with a big dopey grin on my face. (Sorry Sally)
Sally Field reference aside, I am very happy.
Happy to know that there are, at this count, 402 of you who have obligated yourselves to reading whatever
drivel nonsense thoughts that I set to computer screen. My old grasshopper brain continually comes up with things to write about and I am so grateful that so many of you have taken to the time to follow my literary hopping around.
So thanks guys and gals (and businesses) who have shown the ultimate sign of acceptance and followed my little blog.
“You all ROCK!”
*I also have to thank WordPress for having a site that allowed me to reach so many folks. Much more than any other site I’ve been on. So suffice to say, “WordPress, you ROCK!”
