I really hate lists, list making, and list makers who count things and make careful lists of all their carefully counted things. "This is a list of my favorite movies..." they petulantly quaver in their annoying nasal voices. As if anybody cares what some nerd thinks.
I did it for Hero over at A Hero Never Dies. He has gathered lists from many
I believe I have made it perfectly clear to him just how hard it was for me to complete the project, and I thank him for being so sympathetic and kind because I am a complainer. I still hate lists but it was quite challenging and interesting to make my own. And trite as it may sound, I learned a little something about myself. *insert rainbow unicorn music here* I learned that I'm a Turbo Nerd. And also that I like comedies and girly things more than I thought I did. You don't have to care about that.
Reading other people's lists is pretty interesting. I can nod my head and exclaim "Oh bravo, young man!" when somebody writes something pithy or chooses the same movie as I do. Or I can shout "What?! That movie completely sucks!! You're stoopid!!" But they're doing it to me too, right? And that's okay.
The best part so far of reading the other lists published by Hero is that I was led to this amazing webpage about nosepicking in Stephen Chow movies on Tim Chmielewski's Hong Kong Review website. It caused raptures.
Raptures can be dangerous. But when they're not making lists about junk they really love, living dangerously is what turbo nerds do.
