i LOVE to read. ironic that i have read almost nothing on the list. apparantly, i've been reading all the wrong books ;)

as for the movies, although i was shocked at how many i DID see, there are still a ton i feel behind on. and NO, i have not seen any of the Godfather movies, nor Goodfellas. NO, i haven't seen, nor read, any harry potter (or harry potty, as i originally accidentally typed!). i must be one of THEE last people on the PLANET that has done neither. and NO, i have not seen the first to Alien movies all the way through. and i have also NOT viewed A Clockwork Orange, One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest, nor Apocolypse Now, 2001: a space odyssy, or American History X. Would i like to SEE these movies? yes.

someday :)

I haven't seen the godfather movies either.....I did see Goodfellas though. But only because my uncle worked for the cable company and we had the illegal chip that gave us the movie channels...;-)

maybe we should start a club for people who haven't seen the Godfather saga? cause like it or not, we seem to be a minority! *laugh*

Re:
Yeah, I don't think we're missing out on much. Decapitated horses, and that's about it. Goodfellas though, now that was a pretty good movie...

Re:
I haven't seen Goodfellas either. I don't know why...I usually enjoy gangster/crime movies. I'm just behind on the times, I guess. heh.

Re:
i was thinking the same thing about Harry Potter, too, because i have only run into one, maybe two, people that have never read the books or seen the movies!

Re:
I used to be one of those people until...erm...well, whenever the second movie came out. I didn't even read the first book until a few months back, though. I'm behind on current pop culture fixations.

Re:
OMG, that's too funny. That reminds me....

So my dad (he's actually my step dad, but he's my DAD) is a recovering alcoholic/addict. So he was telling me one time that when he was trying to get clean he went on this religious kick. So he was down in Mexico and bought this HUGE velvet Jesus painting. So as he's telling me this I say "Well, where's the painting? I've never seen it in the garage".....and he says "Well....uh.....no.....I traded it for a bag of weed".

Re:
OMG!!!! that is just TOO classic!!

we always got lots of things in exchange for weed when i was in my early teens/late childhood, when mom was selling it. we got video games, vcr's, books, aquariums, a pool table, movies, blah blah :D

ah, those were the days!
