Baby, I'm A Star

In July of 2004 I created a sister blog called Baby, I'm A Star. It took its name from song on/in Prince's Purple Rain album/film. The mission of the blog was always intended to be a limited one. I would watch 30 pop music movies from across various categories (biopics, fictional films, documentaries, concerts, etc.) and write a recap/review of each.

Somewhere in 2005 I lost steam and left the project unfinished.

I picked it back up this past July, 5 years later. Since then I've watched 17 additional films, bringing the grand total to 37. Having surpassed the original goal, I now bring the project to a close. It's a bittersweet feeling, and truthfully, I could have gone on forever. As it is, I missed several key films, like Gimmie Shelter, A Hard Day's Night (though I think Help! is better), and Get Rich or Die Tryin'.

From now on the results of this project can be found in the "Related Content" sidebar at the right of your screen, and you can peruse it at your leisure. The final write-up, posted today, tackles the compulsively watchable documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster.
