last week i commented on how bravo and vh-1 seem to be doing some pretty good business with these list shows; 100 scariest movies, 100 funniest, 100 one-hit wonders, etc. they seem to be nothing but mindless, mind-numbing...lists! and yet every time i happen upon one of them, i must admit, i'm intrigued. i pause and then look up at the clock to see that 3 hours have passed. maybe it's the trivia seeker in me, or the nostalgiast, or, as many other writers will tell you, more likely it's the procrastinator, but i get caught up in them so easily.
that said, i soon set to task a few of our regulars on the topics of five funniest movies, five favorite cartoons, and five favorite songs. i have to say, WE did some pretty good numbers with that ourselves--LOTS of people logged in with their choices--and i truly LOVE when you guys write in!--and scott suggested...nay, DEMANDED...more lists!
so as i am still juggling too much and unable to really talk about any of it, let's do some of that...
let's start with a rather broad topic and then see if we need to narrow it down...
five favorite catch phrases--lines or quotes--from movies.
(let's keep it to movies first and see if there's interest in doing tv later...)
i knew a girl once who could quote most of "the princess bride" to you in her sleep.
she often did.
maybe this category is still too broad--should we say five from comedies and five from dramas. yeah, let's do that...
five favorite catch phrases from film comedy
five favorite catch phrases from film drama
there ya go.
moving on, while i try my best to always be positive and not complain--both in life and here on the blog--i gotta tell ya that i'm pretty disappointed to report that both the TELLOS Colossal hardcover from image and the Perhapanauts:Second Chances trade from dark horse will be shipping a week or so later than originally scheduled. mike, craig, and i are all disappointed and frustrated by this and, while there are always feasible explanations...man, it just takes the wind outta your sails when you plan to have books at a show or wherever and you're left empty handed. craig and i WILL have copies of the second chances trade at heroescon in charlotte, but the tellos book has been bumped to >hopefully< the last week in june due to some production problems. (seems that even though the original files are only 7 years old, the process has already changed so much that all of the files needed to be reformatted for the book. it DOES look AWESOME, but still...woulda been nice to have in charlotte...)
we have absolutely no idea why the 'haps trade is late...
anyway, apologies. we're as diappointed as you are.
hope to see ya at the show anyway--just a week and a half away!! woo hoo!
and for those of you who thrilled to the magic of the perhapanauts choopie butt card last year, craig and i are workin' on a little something special for this year too! (although i think this one might hafta cost a buck or two...)
anyway, my time is up here--i gotta get back to work!
send in your lists!
and, as always, if you have trouble posting a comment and/or don't wanna register with blogger, please feel free to 'e' me your list or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org and i'll be sure that they make it into the comments section! c'mon! do it! we'd love to see ya and you know you want to!!
