This entry puts me through ten-twelfths (five-sixths? 83.3 percent??) of my journey as I brave my way through the Internet elements, joyously delivering movie and TV clips to some of my favorite bloggers! (What is he on about? Click here to make it a little clearer.)
Today’s stop is at the blog of Realweegiemidget Reviews(I know not the blog hostess’ actual name). This is another multi-faceted entertainment blog, providing delightful reviews of movies, TV shows, and books. In fact, the blog covers so much ground, I wondered what one item this woman might enjoy. Happily, her cat gave me the answer.
At the top of her blog’s cover page, there’s a photo of her feline pet watching a TV screen as the Universal Pictures logo appears upon it. So I decided to give Ms. Reelwee…, etc. something to watch with her cat.
Embedded below is a 12-minute history of the Universal logos that have graced the silver screen for over a century (the studio was formed in 1912). There’s another “official” version provided on YouTube by Universal themselves, but it runs only a dreary 30 seconds and goes back only to the 1930’s. This version contains every version and is really quite fascinating viewing for any movie-history buff.
So enjoy 100 years of logos, and please come back tomorrow for Day 11!
And that’s the end! Thanks to our creative blog entrants for their fun contributions, and thanks for reading us for the past three days. Stay tuned later this evening for yet another blogathon announcement!
