Looking Back - Best Posts 4 - 6


We're Halfway There!

At the risk of sounding really lame...I have to say that a lot of the feedback that I have gotten so far about people's favorite posts has really meant a lot to me. It is quite interesting and flattering to hear what other people have found amusing about what I've written back. In fact, the three posts that we are going to highlight tonight were all recommended by readers. So let's go.

#6 Do You Like Scary Movies: Recommended by Rorai G who was actually watched most of the movies discussed in this posting...thus can attest to the amount of screaming that I do during a scary movie and by Monica V who said that it was her favorite post because it scared the hell out of her to read. Now I will be honest with you...I didn't actually reread this entire post...nor do I ever plan to. I have tried and I can never get past the picture of Michael Jackson from Thriller. Well I probably could but I wouldn't sleep for like three days. So let's move on....

#5 Seasons May Change Winter To Spring: Holy shit was I in a bad mood when I starting writing this post. Oh well. I think that my mood improved by the end. This is post of the most romantic lines from movies...according to Millie. Rereading them....I still fall for the lines...even though I know that they aren't meant for me. I can relate to each of them in my own way. I know what it is like to want someone even though you realize that he is everything that you never knew that you wanted. I know how painful it is to step back for a short period of time and hope that he comes back to you. I still believe that someone will rescue me and in turn allow me to rescue him. I believe that you can love a person even though you don't know why. I know how it feels to live on hope alone...hope that we will see each other again. I know the pain that comes with knowing that you can love someone completely and it still is not enough. To feel so content in someones arms that you can think of nothing but the amazingness of those arms. I still believe that there is nothing worse than to deny your heart what it truly desires. I know the risk that comes with falling in love with someone even though you know that he might not love you back. But more than anything...I know what it is like to be afraid of walking out of the room and never again feeling the way I felt while I was in there. Movie writers are freakin' awesome! Oh and this was a favorite Heather M...long time friend and loyal reader.

#4 Sway My Way: Is there anything greater than being able to write about music? Yes...and that is to write about music from movies. It is a pop culture geek's dream come true. A lot of thought went into selecting the songs for this post as were the movies that they are from. It is amazing how the right song can take an ordinary moment and turn it into an amazing moment. The kind of moment that sticks in your head and that you think of every time you hear the song. Each of these songs has done that for me and that is why they made the post. And that really is all that I want to say about it except that thanks goes to Robin and Conner G for recommending this one.

And tomorrow...the Top 3!

First time reader, but suspect that I will be a longtime reader. You don't write a bunch of bullshit. Your blog is real. You have a new fan Geek that is Millie

Millie said...

Conner Gliman...I had no idea that you were a reader!!! How are you stranger?

I am always glad to have a fan...whomever you are!

How could you leave The Exorcist off your scary movie list? That was some scary shit.

Tenderness is one of the worst songs that came out in the 80s.

Holy Shit Conner! I thought that you were dead. Where you been?

As your friend Milville I have to tell you that there is something seriously fucked about the fact that you still believe in those bullshit romantic lines.

I also can't believe that you put the line from The Way We Were. Kinda pisses me off actually.

Umm not so much Millie Vanillie. The scary movie post is good and so was the romantic movie post but the other one sucked.

I laughed a lot reading this one because I think that you forced me to watch every movie in your romantic line post more than once.

I curse you for the fact that as I read this and ever since I have been singing about misty water covered memories of the way we were.

Conner, Robin, Mike Fine, Todd and Jeff (which one?) and now me. It is a fucking reunion.

I read the Sway My Post and it didn't seem like anything special. You left quite a few good posts off your countdown. What about your reaction to the Grammys?
