The Vern gets a Versatile Blogger Award

FuturamaApplauseMy good friend Emmy has nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award.  She runs the uber awesome site Emmakwall(Emma Explains It All and I highly suggest you go check out the articles and reviews she writes.

Now, besides Emmy.  Here are ten other great sites that I am nominating for this award and you should check them out.  Now I feel bad that I can only nominate 10 and I wish I could have nominated more.


10 Facts about me that you always wanted to know but we’re afraid to ask


After years of working an office Job I’m back to doing retail and I love it.  Plus Dental, Vision and Health benefits are a big bonus.

I don’t drive and rely mostly on public transportation and friends to get me around

I play drums for a fun cover band  called Victory Riot(you can see a clip of me  by clicking here.  We were once known as Parental Advisory)

I respect the hell out of the Lord of The Rings Trilogy, but I find those movies really dull to watch.

Besides a Bluray player I still own a VCR and a Laserdisc player.  Yes,  I still buy movies for each one too.

My parents are atheists, my sister is christian which makes me an agnostic.

If I wasn’t doing a blog about movies, I would do one on porn, but still treat it as a professional movie review site.    I sometimes fast forward past the sex scenes to get back to the story.  Now, I love seeing beautiful naked woman just like the next guy.  But sometimes those scenes just drag on.

I love movies that are heartwarming and sweet and ones that are disturbing and fucked up.  Still waiting for when they combine the two into one.

I am extremely grateful  to have met and interviewed many great filmmakers,actors, writers, vlogger, bloggers, and many others since I started this site and joined As You Watch.  I hope to do more with that each year.

It upsets me that no one smiles anymore.  I see all these faces looking down.  Either on their phones, or in a book, or at the ground.  I tried waving a quick hi with a smile at a few strangers and all I got was reactions like I was the weird one.  Also if I say hi to a pretty girl in passing.  It doesn’t mean that I’m cat calling her.


Well that’s it for me today. Laters.



About The Vern

I love movies and I enjoy writing about them too. They both go pretty much hand in hand with each other and it's fun to discover new classics. I co host the podcasts The Film Pasture, ScreenTrax, and soon Cinema Recall. While also contributing reviews and articles to other great sites when I can.

    • The Vern says:

      Wait. I nominated you. Well that certainly was a typo. Nah, just playing. Thank you. As long as your site still dies shitfest and feature hot women on your marquees. I will be a reading your stuff

    Verny!!!!! Sweet Verny!!

    Awesome facts, loved reading them! I wish people smiled more too. I had three friends round the other day and at one point I was looking at them and all three of them were staring at their phones, in deep silence, I did notice it as rather a negative thing.

    We should do an experiment soon, just smile and wave at people all day and see what reactions we get?!

    VHS and Laserdisc – legend.
    I’m taking it you have a Sony Walkman? Or mini disc at least!!!

    I think you should do that porn site, reviewing them as serious films, that would be great! 🙂

    Loved the header picture too, now why didn’t I think of that?!

      Emmy. Beautiful, Emmy.

      I’m glad you agree that talking on cells rather then speaking with people around you is a sad sad thing.

      We can do that experiment, but I can’t imagine no one smiling back at those pretty brown eyes of yours. Shit!! Did that sound creepy? I hope not, I was just trying to pay you a compliment. Damn it. Now here comes the restraining order.

      I have a CD walkman, but I really wish I still had my cassette one. Making a mix tape is way more fun then burning a CD

      As for the porn review site Idea. I love the campy style that a lot of adults movie have . Either back in the 70’s or now. There is this care free fuck it all attitude about how they aproach sex that is kind of liberating. If they can’t get embarrassed by some of the things they do. Why should I be embarrassed to watch it. The parody ones are the best. The Batman one that looks like the 60’s sitcom is brilliant

      One fact that I did not share and I feel bad that I didn’t was that my real name is actually Jason and not Vern. Vern is my middle name shortenened. Vernon

      • emmakwall says:

        You do spoil me!!! 🙂 thank you for your kind words, it was really nice of you and didn’t sound creepy at all.

        Ahhhh….! Only kidding, promise!! What you said was lovely, honestly 🙂

        So where do we go from here?! Verny? Jason? A combination of the two – Jermy or Vason? 🙂

        Wait there’s a porn parody of the Batman TV series?!!!! I can only imagine the embarrassment those tights could cause. Yes I know where you’re coming from, if you have the right outlook and sense of humour, things like that can be fantastically fun! I still think it’s a great, and niche idea, would you consider doing it, whilst you’re also running this blog?

        I haven’t made a mix tape in years, but I’d love to! I also remember recording my own voice on my cassette player – no CD players are up to that job!

        (I’m pretty sure I used to record myself singing Aerosmith….)

        Hope you’re having a lovely day Jason Verny!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂

  4. Fantastic! Can’t think of anyone more deserving!

  5. ”I love movies that are heartwarming and sweet and ones that are disturbing and fucked up. Still waiting for when they combine the two into one.”

    You need to see Red, White & Blue. It’s sweet in its own way, but mostly fucked up 🙂

    Congrats on you award dude. Your blog is awesome

    • The Vern says:

      Sniff Sniff. Don’t make me cry man. Thank you very much. I like what you have on your site as well. I have seen those flicks but not since 1996. I should really revisit them again. Thanks for the reccomendation

  6. sati says:

    I own VCR too and everyone looks at it as some sort of an artifact from the past 😀

  7. Thank you so much for the nomination, and congrats on your nomination too! Love your work.

  8. Congrats on winning the Versatile Blogger Award, Vern! You certainly deserve it, with your commitment to covering multiple genres, podcasting and musical inclinations. You’re a virtual Renaissance man.

    I enjoyed reading the facts about you. I still have my laserdiscs as well, and occasionally take one for a spin, when my temperamental player permits.

    Thank you so much for the nomination! I’m truly honored.
