Jimmy seemed to need some help remembering music that came out if 2004. Jimmy, here are my Top 9 records of 2004. Happy Birthday!
Have you read more than six of these books?
I found this list on Laura K’s blog.
In David Wienberger’s “Everything is Miscellaneous“, he points out that Sam Anderson “maintains that the bottom of your queue of movies to rent from Netflix.com is ‘the person you want to be—Eraserhead, the eight-hour BBC Bleakhouse, the complete Wender Herzog—while the top is the person you actually are: Wedding Crashers, Scary Movie 4, The Bridges of Madison County.”
Lo and behold, “Bleakhouse” and “Ulyseses” are at the bottom of the queue and of the books I’ve actually read? Charlottes Web? The Bell Jar?—I must have stopped reading at thirteen, wearing a black turtleneck sweater and listening to Morrisey.
And I only loved three of the nineteen (Les Miserable, Catch-22, and a Confederacy of Dunces), wonder if I’d love a higher proportion of the books I indend to read.
A fun bloggy game, here’s what you do:
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list on your own blog.
