The BIG NEWS today is that this is the first anniversary of my membership here at The Listology. On 01/16/2000, at this list, I had the brass-bound hide to ask Jim if his lists were for real or just designed to attract comments. I'm thankful that he ignored the implied insult and gave me a friendly answer, and I'm very happy to say we are still friends. I look forward, as we all do, to seeing The Listology (The New Listology) flourish and grow during the coming year.
Two Listologists of note have been hard at work:
Kudos are in order . . . lbangs recently contributed his 100th music list! Remarkable.
Hi gang . . . Sorry about my yet-again-absence. I've been keeping up on reading posts, but not doing much participating. The reason is a good one though - I'm making good time on the upgrade to The Listology. I'm really looking forward to unveiling it. Don't get me wrong, I still have a lot of work left on it, but I have a real sense of progress now. It's late (for a parent), and I'm coming off a coding-high - thought I'd share. :-)
Here's some fun for the tween-holidays doldrums . . . In regards to this list, sirilyan writes: "I want some audience participation here... I've listed a few movies that seem to be heavily inspired by the Evil Overlord List. Take a look at the first page's 100 points: how many of these traits do each movie have?
Esteemed listologists: I have finally gotten off my duff and taken the first concrete steps towards rewriting The Listology (I have scripts for migrating the old data to the new DB structure, and I've done some proof-of-concept
programming). Here's the complete list of what I'm planning (unless I'm forgetting something). Last chance to comment/dissuade me! Click below to read more and comment.
Cinema Review Magazine is a Flashy new movie review site that looks promising. They offer individualized service that allows you to set the kind of things you want to see or don't want to see. Should be useful if you have a young family or if you're the easily offended type. Mind you, I have't explored it much, but I thought some of you would probably be interested.
Over at About.com Classic Movies there's a bit of fun called Marquee Madness. What it is is a list of pairs of movie titles that are funny when you put them together. Once upon a time, cinemas showed two movies one after the other; this was called a 'double bill'. Marquee Madness is a collection of deranged double bills. And don't miss, at the bottom of the page, the short horror story told entirely in movie titles.
