In what originated as a flippant remark between Misty of Cinema Schminema and me, Nostalgiathon is finally here.
Allow me to explain!
The purpose of Nostalgiathon is to relive things from your childhood through the eyes of an adult. Since Andy Watches Movies and Cinema Schminema are both movie-focused blogs, we will be covering movies, but books, TV shows, whatever else are all fair game if you’d like to participate.
“How do I participate?” you may be wondering…It’s easy!
- If you want to write a post for Nostalgiathon, just put the words “Nostalgiathon” in the title of the post and write a little bit about your feelings of the source material as a kid and how it holds up now

I’ll have my first post for Nostalgiathon 2012 up soon to kick things off. [Update - First post is live!] I hope you all participate!
