A Movie meme? Yeah, baby! Yeah!

A new shiny penny for Jason for tagging me on this.

A gotta find 5 people though.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick one film to represent each letter of the alphabet.

2. The letter "A" and the word "The" do not count as the beginning of a film's title, unless the film is simply titled A or The, and I don't know of any films with those titles.

3. Return of the Jedi belongs under "R," not "S" as in Star Wars Episode IV: Return of the Jedi. This rule applies to all films in the original Star Wars trilogy; all that followed start with "S." Similarly, Raiders of the Lost Ark belongs under "R," not "I" as in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. Conversely, all films in the Lord of the Rings series belong under "L" and all films in the Chronicles of Narnia series belong under "C," as that's what those filmmakers called their films from the start. In other words, movies are stuck with the titles their owners gave them at the time of their theatrical release. Use your better judgement to apply the above rule to any series/films not mentioned.

4. Films that start with a number are filed under the first letter of their number's word. 12 Monkeys would be filed under "T."

5. Link back to Blog Cabins in your post so that I can eventually type "alphabet meme" into Google and come up #1, then make a post where I declare that I am the King of Google.

6. If you're selected, you have to then select 5 more people.

Fear and loathing in Las Vegas
Gone with the wind
I heart Huckubees

You're supposed to, ya'know, inform me when you tag me. And I don't usually do memes but this one looks fun...but I shall not pass it on except by those who volunteer.

Oh, BTW, I just noticed that "90 years ago" for updating on No Crying in the War Room". LMAO.

Oh, BTW #2. Doesn't A Fish Called Wanda break rule #1?
Ilya said…
Yep, Nathan is right on your A. Interesting list, by the way. I did mine in a hurry, without much thinking, but we match only on the hardest-to-pick letters Q and X, and there is only one entry on your list that I could have considered instead of what I did put in (and Lord of the Rings which I almost put in, but decided to keep to my Bond theme). Our cinematic tastes are quite dissimilar.
Nathan, my bad. Although my recent visitations dropped to 0, i though nobody's going to see this :)

I always wanted to ask about the chapter 35 and 90 days things, but was a bit shy about it. Who knows how writer's mind works :)

I accept you challenge on the Fish called Wanda!

I've started chapter 36 and it hurts my head. I will get back to it though.

Crazy ideas - UPDATED

Here's a crazy survey I thought off. If you had a time machine where would you travel first? Assuming the fact of course of universal invincibility. ----UPDATE---- As my brother mentioned, with time travel universally available getting rich schemes would be less than doable. My aim is more towards investigating great mysteries of history. Therefore: a. To the Big Bang b. To see an asteroid killing dinosaurs c. To see the exodus of Jews as it really happened d. Try to see if Jesus hubbub really happened e. Forget the past, I'd go to the year 2020 to see who winds World Series and place a bet accordingly. f. Suggested by Ilya . Back a day or to to purchase winning lottery ticket. e. Try to see if Atlantis existed. f. Travel to the future to see the explosion of our Sun. I am torn between the dinosaurs and the World Series. Please suggest the choices. Should I add Buddha and Muhammed to the list as well? From the curiousity stand-point. I still rather see the dinosaurs.

Weekly posting

I have been super busy with work and school these couple of weeks. I think the Innovation and Risk class has wrung me out more than any other (that includes Accounting and Finance). The paper is done. For some stupid reason I did not ask for help on the budgets from people who are close to me and know a lot of stuff about budgeting and feasibility until almost the last moment. I think my brain was fried or something. The only thing that is left is the Disruptive innovation presentation. What my team and I decided to do is to create an online service for aspiring movie makers, basically trying to change the way that independent films are made and distributed. If it ever comes to anything remember, you heard it here first. Oh, yeah. Lots already has been written about this years Superbowl. One thing to mention is that I really really wanted to see Favre against Manning. Two super QBs. I have nothing agains Brees, he's having a season of a lifetime, and what he did for Saints is

Jazz is good for the soul...

ON friday night me and my wife did something that we weren't able to do for the last 3 or 4 years. We went to Andy's Jazz club, on the more famouse Chicago jazz spots that features live muscisians. We were able to witness two live features.The first one was Kelly Brand Trio, consisting of a piano player, a bass, and a drummer. The played variations on Miles Davis and other famouse musicians and were very very nice. The featured artist of the night was a dual sax act of John Wojciechowski - a tenor saxophone player with a local jazz celebrity Mike Smith. Unfortunately we were able to capture only first half hour of the show, but the guys were absolutely amazing. John is in the first clip. I apologize for the darkness. It's the only video I could find. He is the taller one of the two. MIke Smith is in the second clip. Absolutely amazing night of Jazz. I wish we could get out more often. Oh, and on Saturday we watched Madagascar 2 and Body of Lies. Very good two mo
