The Preliminaries

Hello all, this is the first post where I reveal why I started this blog, right. Sure. I got bored, simple, and I happen to like movies and music (shocker). So one day I thought, hey why not talk about them. There are plenty of forums among the cats in the tubes to do this, but I want my own. I am not a film or music student/major nor do I work in any field related to either, but who cares. So, feel free to read my unpolished thoughts on each category as I attempt to post about one movie and one album, once a week (maybe more). I am basing this on two books, mainly. Both part of the same series, I will be using the lists provided by 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (Link) and 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (Another Link). I am just going to go through the lists of each book and discuss each movie or album here. I will also try to end each post with the name of the next film and album I will be watching or listening to, respectively. Thanks for dropping by. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, one film and one album a week for 1001 weeks will take almost 20 years. “Never give up, never surrender.”

Next Week: Georges Melies – Le Voyage dans la Lune, Frank Sinatra – “In the Wee Small Hours”
