a few months ago jay dropped this list on my coffee table with check marks next to several movie titles. "how many have you seen?" he challenged. to my surprise, we had seen exactly the same number of flicks from the american film institute's 10th anniversary edition of the best 100 movies of all time. boring.
so i took it to work. mark, tony, julie, jenn and i each chose a color and meticulously marked each of our have seens. our progress varied from the teens to 40-somethings. then it got serious. jenn came in on a monday morning bragging about movies she could check off the list. roommate leslie started to notice a trend in our netflix queue. tony was staying up late for classic reruns on showtime. it even made the agenda for our weekly department meeting once.
now icecream and pride are on the line. the race is on. i cordially invite you to join in the "who can watch the top 100 movies of all time first?" competition.
don't let yourself fall behind, left only to ramble on about how you coulda been a contender.
You may ask yourself, "How did I get here?". - I'm going to tell you all about L'Eroica California in painstaking detail: Just not now. I will say though that I've given a lot to cycling over the years...
