just sayin'... (101 in 1001)

Yesterday, I created the 101 in 1001 list (a list of 101 things that I would like to do in the next 1001 days). A goal... if you will... to keep myself busy and focused on me and it seems like a lot of fun. You can find my personal list next to 'Jane Doe Facts' under my header.

Anyway.... one of my goals on the list is to watch every movie on IMDB's Top 250 Movies list. I thought it would be a great way to find older movies that I never happened to watch... get cultured a little bit... and try new/different things. Lemme tell ya... this goal is going to be a royal pain in the ass.

I just went through the list and added all of the ones I haven't seen already (I think I've already seen 44) to my queue on Netflix. OH. MY. GOSH.

Some of these movies are going to be straight up torturous to watch. Some of them are foreign, some of them have no speaking, some of them were made in the 1920's... one of them is even a Japenese anime cartoon... I'm gonna end up killing myself. But--by golly... I don't start anything that I can't finish. And I've already spent entirely too much time adding them to my Netflix queue to back out now. I have spaced them out some so that I don't have to watch too horrible ones back to back and maybe that will help. Eeeeesh!
