Welcome to the new improved Cinema OCD. The first thing you'll notice is the new look. Thanks to Kate Gabrielle from Silents and Talkies for designing my new logo. I highly recommend Kate's services as a graphic designer and artist. She was so fast, professional and fun to "work" with that the process was completely painless for me.
The new look is inspired by covers for the great magazine Photoplay from the early 1930s and by film poster art in general. I've always admired the somewhat-trashy, totally-pithy and beautifully-illustrated film magazines of the classic era and I've always hoped to bring that vibe to my blog.
Cinema OCD has been improved content wise as well. I'm going to be phasing out the Media Room, and in doing so, I'll be incorporating all my media room posts into this blog. The media room was originally meant as a place to post overflow (if I'd already posted five times in a month on Barbara Stanwyck and wanted to post some more) or as a place to put book reviews. The overflow has become unnecessary because I've been trying to vary the movies I watch more and book reviews never really materialized. All the old posts are marked with the tag "media room" so if you missed them you can go back and find them here. Spare media will now be posted on my tumblr page.
