MOVIES: 15 Films In 15 Minutes

sI got this from a friend on Facebook - OlderMusicGeek

The Rules: Don't take too long to think about it - fifteen films that you've seen that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen that you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. - PS, If I tagged you, it's because I'm genuinely interested to see your list, cuz I think you might have good recommendations that I haven't heard before. :) Plz tag me back.

1. Star Wars: A New Hope (The most important film to me personally, not 100% sure why!)

2. It's A Wonderful Life (What can I say? I relate to Mr George Bailey!)

3. 2001 (one of the first films to really blow my mind)

4. Eraserhead (The film that has probably blown my mind the most. Still have no idea what it's about!)

5. Yellow Submarine (A great fun film with great music. It was kind of mind-blowing for the age when i first saw it!)

6. Wizards (Can't say I like it as much in my 40s as in my 20s. Bbut in my 20s, I went to every showing of that movie I could - Remember this was before vcr's and dvd's - That was the only way to see a movie!)

7. High Fidelity (Totally relate! Being the music geek i am!)

8. Wonder Boys (Again, I relate to both the kid and the old professor. I was/am like each!)

9. (500) Days Of Summer (Just an awesome film about boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy moves on.)

10. Bladerunner (Just a beautiful, well-made film, great message, great blend of film noir and science fiction.)

11. The Wizard Of Oz (Family would go to grandpa and grandma's to watch this cus they had a color tv! And fond memories of my daughter and i watching it!)

12. A Christmas Story (Do i have to say anything?!)

13. Fantastic Planet (Just another film that blew my mind when I first saw it. Still like it now, though not impressed as I was a teen)

14. Rust Never Sleeps (Another midnight movie of my youth. A great concert movie by Neil Young.)

15. Pink Floyd's The Wall (Great well-made movie with great music.)

Music That I've Enjoyed Recently

My Internet Radio Stations

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
