In for a penny, in for a pound. I’ve never tagged anyone with one of these before, but here goes: anonsally, muchtoofullofsand, analyticritic, stpauligirl, and despairoftranslators. No need to actually do it if you aren’t inclined. But I was curious what each of you would choose, if you’re willing.

  11. Alice in Wonderland
  12. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (is that a cheat?)
  13. Harry Potters 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 parts 1 & 2 (cheating again, I know)
  14. Star Wars 4, 5, & 6 (yeah, I fail at this game)
  15. Space Balls

                

And then I read lies' list, and how how how could I have forgotten Singin' in the Rain, which leads to Seven Brides for Seven Brothers or Bride and Prejudice?????  You've Got Mail & While You Were Sleeping which are just excellent films, chick flicks or no. What about the two recent Captain America movies? HELLO DOLLY HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU NOT ENTER MY HEAD SOONER and then there's the first two Chronicles of Narnia movies and Hook and lies I too love the 2003 Peter Pan Pirates 1 is a great romp and I do love the two recent Star Trek films, even though there are some problematic parts (I just really want to live in the future) Apollo 13 and The Dish you give me all the space feels and ok guys I’ll quit now but you get the idea

People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any

  • Romeo: I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
  • Juliet: I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
  • --
  • Romeo: We should kiss right now at this party
  • Juliet: No that is a super dumb idea
  • Romeo: *kisses her anyway*
  • Juliet: That was dumb of you
  • --
  • Romeo: We should get married right now
  • Juliet: We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
  • Romeo: Like tomorrow?
  • Juliet: Sure, fine.
  • --
  • Juliet: We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
  • Romeo: Right.
  • Romeo: It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
  • --
  • Juliet: Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
  • Romeo: *immediately kills himself*
  • Juliet: For fucks sake.

Green Wheat Field (detail), Vincent Van Gogh, 1890

Green Wheat Field (detail), Vincent Van Gogh, 1890

Love this new video by itsradishtime because (a) apples are my favorite fruit and (b) even though it’s quite short, it concoted a whole pre-story in my head involving a woman murdering her unfaithful lover and then sitting down to enjoy an apple while laughing over his cold dead body. (Seriously, watch the video: you know I’m right.)

I’ve been a bit obsessed with Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailando” recently.  (I can almost sing the Spanish version all the way through!)  I find it interesting that he’s released so many different versions.  My favorite music video is above (I just want to watch the dancers all day), though Enrique is not one of the singers.  My favorite version of the song is the Spanish version with Enrique.  Additionally, check out the Spanish + Brazilian Portuguese version (with a separate lyric video), the Spanish + Portuguese Portuguese version (also with a separate lyric video), and the Spanish + English version.  Whew!
