Don’t Read This & My Top Movies

I’m working on a new post, well sort of, okay, I should be working on a new post, and in order to get my ass moving on that post I’m writing this nonsense post so that I have to look at it every day, which will hopefully motivate me to post something of substance/worth.  I did order one of those fantastic graphics tablets I keep hearing about, but it was sold out from my favorite online store, newegg.com, so I had to order from the Apple Store, which I was not very happy about.  I haven’t purchased anything from apple since I bought a nano back in 2005.  Every time I purchase something from Apple I feel like I am joining some cult.  I am also reminded of the South Park episode, Humancentipad, which does not serve me well.  If you have seen that episode, than not only are you a different person because of it, for better or worse, but you know exactly what I am talking about.

For some reason I felt like this would be a good place for a paragraph break.  Even though is a stream of consciousness post, it still needs paragraphs, right?  Damnit Boggletondrive.com, now I am always self-conscious about my grammar!  It’s okay, I actually really enjoy that blog, keep up the good work.  But back to what I was talking about, which was nothing, so on to a topic worth discussing.  The truth is, I have had the flu for the past week, among other things, like applying to graduate school, has kept me from making a post.

Here is now a list of 30 my favorite movies, in no particular order after #2:

1. Braveheart
2. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

—————————————————-

3. Surf’s Up
4. Garden State
5. Fool’s Gold
6, 7, 8. Star Wars (3,4,6)
9, 10, 11. Lord of the Rings Trilogy
12. Jurassic Park
13, 14. The Matrix I and II
15. Independence Day
16. The King’s Speech
17, 18. Muppets From Space, Christmas Carol
19. Hot Rod
20. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
21. The Quick and the Dead
22. Exit Through the Gift Shop
23. Rules of Attraction
24. Greedy
25. The Beach
26. Full Metal Jacket
27. Pirates of the Caribbean II
28. Robin Hood: Men in Tights
29. Monty Python and the Holy Grail
30. The Princess Bride

Please have a magnificent day, and adopt a child or pet if you are in a position to do either.  If you are on the fence about one or the other, just go with your gut.

That Just Happened – 3 Things

First of all, I just wanted to take this post to thank WordPress and everyone who visited, commented, and liked my posts after, and before (you know who you are), being Freshly Pressed.  All of your comments really meant a lot to me.  I tried to approve a good mix of comments and I always welcome anyone’s opinion.  Some people took a lot of time crafting a response and I salute you for that.  While this is a humor blog, because I often use satire it presents the opportunity for criticism and discussion.  Knock yourself out, I know I am.

Secondly, I promise I will have a new post out soon, but be sure to check out some of my archived posts in the mean time.  Oldies but Goldies’.

Last but not least, I would also like to say that I am launching a second blog, Blogging for the Screen, where I will be adapting my unproduced screenplays into blog posts.  Each blog post will be a scene or two from the  script, moving in chronological order, until the story is finished.  I will of course add description and narration, which will make the entries essentially dialogue heavy third-person narratives.  Be sure to follow it so you don’t miss an entry!

Again, thank you all for reading and commenting, new stuff coming soon!

Sincerely,

Smart Guy (Messenger of the Unknowledge Tree)

The Unknowledge Tree and I are thankful.
