In association with dutch movieblog “De Protagonisten” (who inspired me to do this) I want to present the Six degrees of Separation blogathon:
There is a theory that in only six steps you can link anyone to any other person in the world, which I thought would be an awesome idea for a blogathon.
What is it?
Get ready to test your knowledge of actors/movies and directors with the six degrees of separation blogathon. You will get two names of either actors/actresses/directors or movies and what you will have to do is make a link between them in a maximum of six steps. Things are usually clearer when an example is given.
So let me show you one between Matt Damon and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
1. Matt Damon grew up with Ben Affleck
2. Ben Affleck starred with Samuel L. Jackson in Changing Lanes
3. Samuel L. Jackson played in movies like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, directed by Quentin Tarantino
4. In Quentin Tarantino‘s Jackie Brown he cast Michael Keaton in one of the roles
5. Michael Keaton played the title role in Tim Burton’s Batman
6. In the Batman & Robin movie Arnold Schwarzenegger played Mr. Freeze
So how does this blogathon work?
As you know I have done several relay races in the past and have heard from several bloggers that they wished they would get a chance to participate as well. So to go with the theme of this blogathon I decided to increase those chances sixfold and have assigned this blogathon to six bloggers, so please head over to their blogs to see how they tackled their challenges:
Karamel Kinema shows how Natalie Portman and Casblanca are related
Terrence from The Focused Filmographer will prove that Spiderman and Stanley Kubrick are associated
Shah from Blank Page Beatdown is going to look at Robert Downey Jr. and The Godfather
fernandorafael from Committed to Celluloid has evidence that Al Pacino and Top Gun are linked
At the end of their post these bloggers will assign it to another blogger and set the endgoal for that blogger. The next blogger will start with the movie/actor/director the previous blogger ended with and make the connection to in six or less steps to the assigned endgoal. Example: Ruth ends with Transformers and set the endgoal to Cary Grant then the next blogger will have to make the connection between the two. Please make sure that you link back to the previous post(s) as this will help your readers follow the blogathon and it will also help your fellow bloggers to some extra readers, which I’m sure you’d agree will help everyone.
Would you be able to link Matt Damon and Arnold Schwarzenegger in fewer steps?
