Rather than threadjack, new thread.

Citizen Kane
It's a sled. No need to watch it again.
lol. 'bout time somebody said it. #1 movie of all time, my ass.

Regarding War and Peace.  To paraphrase spacey, "#1 book of all time, my ass."  I forced myself to read it cover to cover and it just didn't do a single thing for me.  Freakin' soap opera.

Give us your top overrated whatevers. 

P.S. Bruce Springsteen is a given, no need to waste bandwidth on that one.   Wink

Movie: Gone with the Wind, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Forrest Gump
Band: Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Queen, Guns N Roses
TV Show: Law and Order (any of them), Curb your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, [edit] Friends
Beer: Heineken (*fudge* that *feces*! Pabst Blue Ribbon!)

Jesper Parnevik - unless you're talking about his choice in nannies; in that capacity the dude is spot on.

Lindsey Lohan - as both an actress and a hottie worthy of any press.

Napoleon Dynamite - yeah, I got it; but that doesn't make it good.

Krispy Kreme - they're freaking doughnuts, get over it.

Starbucks - it's freaking coffee, get over it.

My drives - nuff said.

Roses - they never got me outta trouble, you?

I can agree with every item on this list. I haven't ever seen you drive, but every other item is spot on, so I'll assume you know what you're talking about.

Well, early on in my DS career I was known for being a BIG hitter.  I could hit a nice high draw, with a few beyond 300 a round.  One was measured via GPS to be 342 yards - my longest ever as far as I know (only in the desert, I'm tellin ya).  Given my size this was quite a feat, and hence the tales took shape.

Since then however, I no longer hit it very high, the draw has turned into a hook, and 280 is about my peak unless something really good happens.  I really miss the driver swing I used to have, I think I lost it in the bottom of a margarita glass.

Seeing as your list breaks down approximately:

25% Aske
25% Spacey
15% U.B.
13.3% stroh
6.6% Mozilla Twins
5% Art Vandelay
5% 2i
5% Jules


Some of us might have to spread a smite or two out over a couple of days to get you the 10 you want.

Great thread!

I agree with Krispy Kreme, Crash, Catcher in the Rye, and Fountainhead (even though I loved Atlas Shrugged)



I'll contribute The Alchemist, American Beauty, Lost in Translation, Annie Hall, Sideways, Barry Zito. Devil
