I decided to become the most fulfilled person in the world and complete both 1001 lists. I am a major film buff so I think this will be a lot of fun! I have made such a dent in this list however that it will be awhile until I am up to date but since no one reads my blog anyway we should be good to go! Enjoy and leave comments!
P.S. All facts/clips will come from either Wikipedia, IMDb, or Youtube."
I was 15 years old when I started this blog, and I sound like it. And apparently, I made a point to ward against infringement claims. I mean, good god. However and but in the same sentence. This is why I don't respond to comments made on my older posts. For me, it's the equivalent of pulling out old prom photos.
I didn't go to prom, though. I am not going to say I was watching movies and blogging instead, although that would fit nicely. But the blog was with me through high school, my early twenties, and now my mid twenties. It's hard to say goodbye to anything that's been with you for ten years. I associate certain blog posts with certain memories. I watched a horror movie with a boyfriend long-gone, or I put on a documentary post-operation, on the hope it would give me a second's relief from pain.
But it's time to direct my creative energy elsewhere. I finished the 1001 albums blog several months ago, so the timing works out. I don't think I'll be able to resist the impulse to pop in again if or when they decide to update the 1001 movie List. I'd like to keep up the dialogue for any readers. And it's a long way to go before I'll be writing a post like this on my book blog.
I love movies. I hope you've had at least half the fun reading my posts as I have had, as past Amanda put it, "becoming the most fulfilled person in the world."
