So I was recently roasted for my birthday (an enjoyable experience, though perhaps not for the faint of heart) and one of the comments concerned the massiveness of my Facebook interacting with the massiveness of my Blog and how this would cause a tear in space/time and end the universe. They obviously hadn't been reading my blog, since it has hardly been massive these last few months. And although I have done a great many interesting things since I last reported in, I'm not going to write them at this time. Instead you get this little bit of fluff, which I have already prepared for my facebook.

“SUPPOSEDLY if you've seen over 85 of these films, you have no life. Mark the ones you've seen. There are 239 films on this list. Copy this list, go to your own facebook account, paste this as a note. Then, put x's next to the films you've seen, add them up, change the header adding your number, and click post at the bottom. Have fun.”

So what’s up with this list that’s popping up everywhere? And by everywhere I mean facebook and myspace, because I’m not invited anywhere else. Notice the high number of horror movies and chick flicks. Notice the high concentration of movies from the 90s and later. I believe the author of the list believes these to be films of little value. Although there are a number of films on here that I LOVE, I agree that most of them are pretty pointless, and their sequels even more so. Hence if you’ve seen 85 of THESE movies, not just 85 movies in general, you have no life. Perhaps the author is correct. All I know is that I spent 30 minutes researching and doing this, which proves to me that I have no life much more than my total of 138.

I'm shocked that you haven't seen 'Airplane'. I haven't either, but it seems like one of those "classics" you would have been sure to see some time.
