So many movies

Man, I hate when you save and then go back in Blogger. It automatically puts in extra returns. Most of the time you can fix 'em but not so much when you paste in stuff like this. It sucks!

How many have your name?

So the above is with Katrina (maiden name)

Wow what a difference.

And this one is HDiTty

This site fascinates me. I kept putting name after name in there, too cool.

So I was trying to do an easy post rather than get into the whole puppy thing right now, especially since I can't put up any photos yet. So I searched for some memes and found The Daily Meme, which has some pretty cool links. Which is where I found the above and now the below.

Take this list of the top 100 movies from the IMDB and bold the movies you have seen. (I'm not sure where this is originally from). This list is from May 2004. I'm changing the color of the ones I've seen since bold doesn't work as well. I'll also do as the book meme and change the ones I want to see, I'll make them blue.

So I've seen 54 of them, oops, 58 of them. I went back and put the foreign names in IMDB's site for titles to make sure and sure enough there were four more. I put the English translation next to those I've seen or want to see to make it easier on you. Sorry, I didn't think to do the others and have gotten lazy and don't feel like going back for the others.

And there's 14 I've yet to see. One day I'll get to those. Hell, we own Eternal Sunshine, just haven't gotten around to watching it. There's a few others I'm on the fence about. Kind of the I'll watch it for free when it shows up on some channel but I'm not going out of my way to rent it, type deal.

So that was a easy enough post. One of these days after HD makes room on the hard drive and I'm able to get the puppy photos up I'll get the update done.

Media quote of the day: As I lay in the back of Buck's truck, trying to will my limbs out of entropy, I could see the faces of the cunts that did this to me and the dicks responsible. Members all of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. When fortune smiles on something as violent and ugly as revenge, it seems proof like no other, that not only does God exist, you're doing His will. - The Bride - Kill Bill: Vol. 1
