Phoenixville’s Colonial Theatre hosted its annual Blobfest this weekend. The three-day event celebrated The Blob, a 1958 science-fiction movie that was created in the suburban Philadelphia area. The venerable movie house was a set in a handful of scenes in the flick, allowing fans to watch The Blob in the same theater that it was filmed.
June was my busiest month as a blogger yet. I worked with a few different writers and diversified the content that appears on this site.

Two decades years later, the only enduring part of Godzilla is its soundtrack.
One of the biggest blockbusters of the summer, Solo: A Star Wars Story, hits theaters today. To mark the release of the second Star Wars standalone movie, The Flat Circle is traveling to a Saturday Night Live episode from a long time ago in a sketch that never made it to air: “Casual Friday On The Death Star.”
Last week the Flat Circle celebrated its first anniversary. I started the blog a year ago because I felt the urge to find my creative voice. I had hoped that in doing so I would also be able to build a new professional profile. Almost one year after I resumed blogging, I am happy to begin the second phase of the Flat Circle
One year ago today I began a new adventure. 365 days, 117 posts, and 31,496 visitors later, the Flat Circle Blog has reached its first anniversary. In the one year that I have been blogging I have learned so much about writing, the world of pop-culture, and myself.
