Mein Liebster Feind

It's been a while since little old me got a blog award, and even longer since I've publicly acknowledged getting one on my site (yeah, I'm a "site" now!), but I'm trying really hard not to be so much of a snob lately. Really, I am! That being said, Jenny Krueger from Memoirs of a Scream Queen was nice enough to pick The Death Rattle as one of five recipients of the prestigious Liebster Award. What a doll. I sincerely thank Jenny for thinking of (and enjoying) my site.

Now I have to pass on the award to five other blogs. I want to pass it on to five people who leave comments on my site on a fairly regular basis, but there's a catch: I have to pass it on to a blog with less than 200 followers. That means Cool Ass Cinema and Chuck Norris Ate My Baby are shit out of luck (on the bright side, you guys have over 200 followers, so fuck you!). So, instead I'll just pass it on to some blogs written by people who leave feedback here more than once every blue moon, or blogs run by people who I consider to be friends.

A Hero Never Dies - Anyone who reviews NINJA III: DOMINATION is OK in my book.

Playground of Doom - A great blog owned and operated by Dusty: a good dude and aspiring filmmaker based out of New Mexico.

Fist of B-List - He has funny screen captions and you don't.

Mermaid Heather - Heather's dedication to watching awful straight-to-DVD movies never ceases to amaze me. Plus, me and her go way back.

Quiet Cool - Quiet Cool has been a huge inspiration for me as a blogger and I'd be remiss not to give a shout out to the reclusive and mysterious Hans.

OK, guys, now you have to acknowledge this award on your blog AND thank me. Also, you have to pass it on to five blogs with less than 200 followers. Or something. If you choose not to, I won't be offended... trust me.


  1. Thanks Aaron, you just made my day! Matt and Brian get enough props as it is! I'll be sure to pass the award on.

  2. HA! As I sit on top of mount doom, petting the soft underbelly of my white tiger, I say those are some great picks, Aaron! Also, being mentioned in the same sentence as Cool Ass Cinema is quite the honor unto itself. Congrats on the award!

  3. Thank you, Aaron. This award is very flattering, and I appreciate your kind words. An award means all the more when I really respect and admire the one who is handing it out. Above all, congrats being awarded yourself, as you consistently do great work here at The Death Rattle.

  4. I can't wait to get my own complimentary white tiger once I reach 200 followers.

  5. LOL! Some great picks there, Aaron, and a couple I haven't yet heard of. Likewise being in the same mention of the superlative site that promotes both Chuck Norris AND baby eating is an unparalleled honor and much appreciated and congrats to those you've bestowed congrats to!

  6. I'm glad you like it :D P.s. That was not a sympathy award, I gave it to you because I really like your blog. :D
