The Cake and a Movie Movement

Wow, this Cake and a Movie thing seems to be taking off, at least on Twitter. There are reports of #CaaM being held from California to Illinois to North Carolina to Florida and all the way across globe in Australia. How awesome is that?

I registered today but haven’t decided how I want to build it out. Another WordPress blog? A Joomla or Drupal content management system? I’m taking ideas from anyone that has them.

With this site I want to help other people host their own Cake and a Movie gatherings with movie reviews, recipes, tips… etc etc. I’d love to figure out a way to have a live stream of the #CaaM hash tag from Twitter. Anyone know how to do this?

Another cool feature would be for people to post their Cake and a Movie events for others to join, a GoogleMaps integration would be great. Plus people could submit their movie reviews and recipes, how fun would that be?

Make this whole #CaaM thing go big. I feel that in a time where there is so much uncertainty, when we are all a little bit down, something like this could be the very thing that helps pull us up. Sometimes it’s just the simple things.

Plus… these get-togethers are a blast! Just search for #CaaM on Twitter and see what everyone is talking about!

  1. You used a linked hash tag for cake and a movie four times in your blog. Just sayin’.
    Otherwise, I think it would be awesome to have a database of recipes – that carrot cake you made looks BEYOND amazing. Also, maybe unrealistic (actually, totally unrealistic due to time zones), but having everyone stream their cake and a movie nights. I’m on a stream-of-consciousness and tired. Bye!
