It's hard to believe but it really has been exactly a year since I first launched GRIND MY REELS. In that year I've published 75 original pieces and I've been overwhelmed by all of the support that I've received from my readers both online and in-person. I've been surprised by the number of people that I've been able to reach with my writing and podcasts in only just a year. Be it by a simple comment or "like" on an article or even by approaching me on the street (as one random fan did), I could not be more thankful of all the championing my followers have done for the site.

Every month The Large Association Movie Blogs (The LAMB) has a competition for a film to be chosen as its "Movie of the Month." After some fierce competition and help from all my loyal readers, Grind My Reels stood triumphant with my film pick of The Shape of Things as The LAMB's Movie of the Month! Neil LaBute's The Shape of Things stands as a personal favorite of mine, despite many of its flaws, due to its amazing ability to get a strong reaction out of its audience. Anyone who is a close friend of mine has at one point been subjected to watching it.
As the winner for he Movie of the Month I was invited to host The LAMBcast to talk about the film. For the uninitiated few I highly suggest that you gather a few friends together who like to talk philosophy and watch the film before listening. For everyone else, hit the jump to listen to the show.
