Books read in 2001

I got bogged down toward the end, but it was pretty interesting. I normally don't read a lot of biography. And it was definitely a bio of Galileo - including letters from his daughter was pretty much just the attention-getting gimmick for the book. Not that those letters didn't provide a lot of interest, and illumination of his life.

And she appears to have been an interesting woman, though not a whole lot is said about her life (though I don't think much CAN be said of a cloistered nun in the 17th century).

Resonant Movies, Tier One

I find it odd that so many in your Tier 1 list are very recent. Looks like 9 from the last 3 years or so. I would think you would have more of a time spread, with a mixture of classics, recent, and not-so-recent. Is it just that those films are fresher in your memory?

Blair Witch 2

I've seen worse. See the score for Winona Ryder's last movie, Lost Souls (glad I didn't waste my money). The ONLY "fresh" review uses words like "decent" and "passable" - not exactly glowing.

Favorite Movies with a Disability Focus/Storyline

It just occured to me - Four Weddings and a Funeral! For the deaf brother - I can't believe no one has mentioned it before.

.Books To Read

Well, as distinct from Books to Spend Actual Money On, rather. There are either books I own but have never gotten around to, or books I plan to borrow from the library.

Favorite southern rock songs

For me at least, it refers to a style. It has almost a country-western sound to it. And Black Velvet defintely qualifies for that (I believe it was actually on the Country billboard list as well as the rock).

Favorite southern rock songs

Well, if you want to check out similar-souding artists, go to Amazon Music > Styles > Rock > Classic Rock > Southern Rock. It's not a very popular sound nowadays, but I'm not the only one who classifies it this way.

0016: Films to Scare Yourself Silly With (AKA Great Horror Films)

How about Arachnophobia? Despite the comedic elements (like John Goodman), I found it very scary (attested to by the deep fingernail marks on my date's arm afterwards).

I'm just about mentally committed to completely re

One more idea - being able to see the number of entries on each list when looking at a search result (OK, so I just want to compare the "Books I've read this Year lists the easy way). In other words, I would see a list of lists like:

  • Books read in the 2nd half of 2000 (21) by timepiec (32 entries)
  • Books I've Read This Year (53) by Rhaam (24 entries)
  • Recent Books I have Read by Smooney (4 entries)

[just making these numbers up, don't kill me if I under-report your reading]

Which brings up another idea - is there a way to seach only in the list title, not the contents? (like for "this year")?

Maybe it's my love of parallelism (or something), but I like the categories: aural, textual, and visual.

Or you could be more strightforward and go for audio, video, print.

I'm very happy that we can now know, via the stars, when a new comment has been added to our lists, but I'd also like to know when someone has replied to my comment on another list.
