Giggles and Grins

Fun stuff that is for S & Gs.

Because school has officially started and because I have jack and squat for time, I’m bringing back one of the first posts I made on my blog from 1999. This time, though, with comments, you get a chance to tell me what you’re all time favorite movies are.

My next weekly Top Ten List.

  1. Shichinin no Samurai
  2. Raiders of the Lost Ark
  3. Amelie
  4. Unforgiven
  5. The Crow
  6. Mad Max: Fury Road
  7. Galdiator
  8. The Maltese Falcon
  9. Let the Right One In
  10. The Empire Strikes Back

Honorable mentions: Army of Darkness, Cloud Atlas, The Full Monty, Alien, The Bridge over the River Kwai, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Jaws, The Fisher King, The Great Escape, Terminator 2, Raise the Red Lantern, the Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Star Wars, Vertigo, Platoon (previously on list bumped by Mad Max: Fury Road), The Lord of the Rings (previously on the list bumped by Amelie), Rashomon (previously on the list bumped by Let the Right One In).

The only one actually in order are the first two. Seven Samurai  and Raiders are my favorite movie of all time. And, to qualify, these movies are all personal choices for me. They have had, in some shape or form, a profound effect on how I work as an artist and as a individual. Take it for what it’s worth.

Nice image, huh? Did you check out the song? Isn’t it fantastic! Like the best, rockinest song of all time!!!!! YAY!

See, my dear, dear friend Chris Jones years ago decided since he was playing this over and over again in his CD player (yes, little ones, BEFORE mp3 players) that he must share. So he packaged this up and shipped it straight away (with two others) all the way from Taiwan. Yes. All. The. Way.

So enjoy and if you find yourself reaching for the ear-sized drill (I find a 5/8th bit works best) don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Song!
