Ah the world of finals! I’m in the homestretch of school (actually my home stretch as an undergrad) so it’s planning for final exams and writing out outlines for final papers, thus little movie watching and little blogging. Bear with me over the ensuing weeks and I thank everyone who sticks with me. I’m going to be doing some more things as we get closer to summer (when I’ll have all day to blog). I’ve seen a lot of blog tournaments that I’m interested in doing on this blog, as well as more lists and movie/classic book reviews! So stay tuned!
The fantastic Angela, blogger of The Hollywood Revue (http://hollywoodrevue.wordpress.com/) recently posted her lineup if she was in charge of programming at TCM! I love when TCM does their guest lineups, especially that time SNL’s Bill Hader did it! So Angela challenged others to comment or blog about their own dream line-up on TCM. Here is mine, a full 24 hours of my favorite TCM worthy films. Yes I know a lot of my movies are from the 50s…I tried to be as diverse as I could be and note that a lot of this is coming from off the top of my head.
