Greetings, Friends & Fiends!
Ye Olde Dragon here, with the news that I shall very happily be Guest-Hosting the Grand Ole #TCMParty on Thursday Nights in May, 2017!
Something we’ve all wanted so badly, and have asked The-Powers-That-Be at TCM repeatedly for, over the years…
THE RETURN OF MONSTER MOVIES ON THURSDAY NIGHTS!
It started for so many of us back in June, 2011 when TCM was airing the now legendary
DRIVE-IN DOUBLE FEATURE THURSDAYS.
This was the first Live-Tweet event for so many of us, and when it was ended, we wanted the party to continue, and for that reason up sprang the popular groups #TCMParty and #DriveInMob.
Six years later, both are still going strong (as are other fun groups that have popped up since), and while we’ve had occasional marathon nights here and there, and of course Halloween, we didn’t have that original, magic formula from our first go-round.
But now, it seems to be back! On Thursdays in May, TCM is shining their spotlight on
CREATURE FEATURE THURSDAYS.
I’ve already posted a schedule for all of the movies being shown, and now I’m highlighting those films that I’ll be guest-hosting.
UPDATE: May 2, 2017!!
As per my announcement about TCM having a special guest hosting a live tweet using #LetsMovie, here’s my modified schedule. Please note that I WILL still be there, tweeting with the #TCMParty hashtag

So I certainly have my work cut out for me. I hope you’ll join me and the rest of the #TCMParty and the #DriveInMob who will no doubt be showing up as we celebrate the Monster Movies that brought us together! I’ll also be providing some insights and notes after each movie on video, as I did last Halloween!
See you there, Friends and Fiends!
