The CMBA profiles two classic movie blogs per month, on the 1st and the 15th. Today we're featuring Moira of The Skeins.
If you're not familiar with all the projects that Moira of The Skeins has been involved in, then you're really missing out on something.
In addition to writing and researching, Moira co-hosts a classic movie forum at Silver Screen Oasis. Guests on this forum include biographers Scott Nollen and Jeffrey Spivak, and the CMBA's own Jacqueline A. Lynch.
However, one of Moira's articles, published on TCM's Movie Morlocks site, has garnered a lot of attention over the years – a post about the pioneering African American actor, James Edwards.
- Searching for and occasionally finding ways to express my love of films (good and bad) and the people who made them. Analyzing my own reactions to films and realizing how everything in my real life has affected my perception and taste in movies
- Meeting and sharing impressions of films with others online. Blogging has enabled me to interact with people from all over the world – most of whom I could never have met otherwise.
- I also love research! It is very exciting to learn more about films and filmmakers during research by reading the ballyhoo, controversy and hubbub that accompanied movies when they were first released.
