The Award Winning Max Jenke

While 1989's The Horror Show may have never received any official accolades, the blogspot that bears the name of its star slasher is the object of much online affection.

Citing a lack of time to properly acknowledge it, last week I deferred my Kreative Blogger Award from Geof at Enter The Man-Cave to Steve Senski at Heart In A Jar. However, that hasn't stopped the awards from coming in.

Planet of Terror awarded DwMJ its second Kreativ Blogger Award of last week, saying some incredibly nice things about yours truly and my efforts here. And now the exemplary blogspots Made For TV Mayhem, All Things Horror, and The Drunken Severed Head have all bestowed on DwMJ the One Lovely Blog Award. Damn, that's a lot of awardin'!




I graciously accept both awards and while I've lost track of what accepting each award entails, let me give special shout-outs in return to Enter The Man-Cave, Planet of Terror, Made For TV Mayhem, All Things Horror and The Drunken Severed Head.

Instead of officially giving out these awards in return, let me say that if you're a fellow blogger that's come here and you don't have one or the other of these awards, consider yourself a recipient - no strings attached. Maintaining a blog is hard work, and requires real dedication and diligence. Whether you post once a day, once a week, once a month, or even once a year, the fact that you're taking the time away from your family or job or school to share your passion for a subject is inspiring. Congratulations all around!

When I saw your posted artwork, I thought that, finally, someone is paying tribute to Jeff by releasing The Horror Show on DVD! Wouldn't that be a wonderful blog award - your choice of a fave film on disc in your honor? As always, congrats, Jeff!

Thanks, Senski! If I could choose one favorite film to make it to DVD, I don't know if The Horror Show would be my first choice but it'd be real high on the list of contenders!

Congrats on all the well-deserved attention.
One of my favorite things about your reviews/articles is that they're powered by a sincere/authentic love of the genre and movies... I never get the sense that you're writing to sound 'cool' and 'hip'... not trying to show us all what a smartypants you are.
Much more Roger Ebert than Gene Shalit.

Thanks for the kind words, Knob!

You are so cool.

I can't be so conceited to agree with that, Max, so I can only say 'thanks' for the gracious compliment!
