Share your C-U movie life, folks!

In light of yesterday’s C-U Biz-en-scène column, during which we admitted a craving for flesh blood to course through the veins of the Secret MICRO-FILM Headquarters and everything emerging from within its ephemera-covered walls, we’ve decided to revive a submission pitch that originally went D.O.A. back in the winter. How badly did it bomb? We never received a single contribution, one of several recent signals causing us to wonder how often (or well) our dearest readers actually read what we’ve been posting for more than five years non-stop. This time, Facebook will be our bitch in an effort to not drop the ball twice and we’d like you in on the action. Don’t be shy!

After reviewing what we posted on January 28, we decided there’s no sin in recycling since we embellished the proposition accurately enough the first time. Starting immediately, “we’d like to feature your words about living la vida cinema in MICRO-FILM Country! Please send us no more than 2,000 words total describing five significant movie milestones you’ve encountered in or near Champaign-Urbana, Illinois! You could recall awesome theatrical shows, impeccable video viewing, sublime on-set achievements, once-in-a-lifetime celebrity encounters, or anecdotes so uniquely dazzling we aren’t even smart enough to come up with them as examples!”

For those having mild flashbacks to the original text, we’re dropping the requirement that said moments should have taken place during the existence of C-U Blogfidential – meaning, from February 2006 on – and have pushed the new due date for your anecdotes to Friday, September 30. We reserve the right to reject submissions received at cuconfidential [at] gmail [dot] com for any reason and edit accepted material for grammar, clarity, and accuracy, as well as determine the order in which essays will be posted. Not only will you enrich our body of work tremendously and provide your fellow readers with unique perspectives on CUBlog topics, but you’ll also make the MFHQ management extremely giddy. Good luck!

p.s. If you’re more comfortable responding with comments than lengthy paragraphs, share the love tomorrow morning when our monthly Clean Slate open forum returns. Since last month’s CS was universally ignored except by the fabulous Lisa Cerezo of Psychic Joker Entertainment, we’re doing a repeat this month. It’s up to you to show us the Slate should remain on our plate!
