I know, who am I to judge? But I'm gonna judge anyway, so here are my most favorite and least favorite movies, songs, CDs, and books of the year. And more. Click on this admittedly lame graphic I made for the occasion:

Laura Linney also sucked in Kinsey. She was totally wasted as an actress, all "supportive and long-suffering"-- I wanted to vomit. And you forgot to add Riding Giants to your best list. Surfing. Rules.

on your worst songs list -
100 Years by Fight for Fighting
100 Years by Five for Fighting

A couple of records I picked up this year that I have fallen in love with are Last Exit by Junior Boys and Give Up by Postal Service.
Anchorman overrated. I might put that on my list of the worst.
Movies I might rated too high (on my own list, which doesnt really exist other than in my imagination) - Dodgeball (this is however not indicitive of my addiction to Extreme Dodgeball on GSN)
Best movie of the year I agree with one of the previous postes, Riding Giants.

Oooh. I like reading people's best of lists for music. I always find an album I missed during the year. I'm gonna try some new stuff off of your best 2004 CDs...the stuff I don't already have.

I want to append to my previous list of albums for 2004. Sitting here listening to my iPod another record jus' came on. When it falls by Zero 7.

Did you seriously put Bryce Dallas Howard - The Village
as one of your favorite perfomances? Your new nick name is Mary Hart - cause she thinks she should win an Oscar for that performance too.
Poor Dan, his taste now resembles that of a middle-aged white woman, with great legs.

Usher? I didin't know you were a fan boo.
By Stacy, at 3:39 PM
I liked Bryce Dallas Howard too.
And I really don't have nice legs.
By Stacy, at 3:40 PM
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...Yeah! Dan also really likes "P. Daddy" and them Maroon 5. Today he told me to get him the new Celine Dion and Anne Geddes CD/Book for Christmas, I swear to GOD.
Stacy, I need to email you. Sorry, I've been busy, maybe I'll comment on your blog. That is all I seem to have time for. Composing a well written email takes too much thought and I am tired of thinking. My head hurts...

Really, I just wanted to say that graphic is awesome. I mean, cool!
... and "Saved!" was actually a really great movie. Funny, yet with a pretty powerful social message.

The p and the d stacked together to form a rectangle is cool - the rest is not. First of all, why is the head of the statue visible? If it were in the type, the cut-out of the P would prevent you from seeing it. Second, too many colors. The purple throws everything off and the green is very Marshall Fields. Third, you should have spelled out "planet dan" not "lanet dan" in the actual logo or dropped that down to be part of the multi-colored text.
Other than that, it's great. I even like that you are tyring to bring back the beveled edge. That was sarcasm...
By brent, at 5:13 PM
Who is P. Daddy? And I got two words for you, B*: Lindsay Lohan. So no judging. And that "It was only $9 at Target" excuse ain't gonna fly anymore.
Oh, and that's not a beveled edge, it's the photoshop fragment filter. Not that that makes it any better, but I just needed to rub it in your face.

I may have purchased Lindsay's CD, but I didn't put it on my top ten/20/30 list. I can't help it if she is shakin' her boobies, singing in a robot voice and using vertical lens flares in the video to get me to buy it...she's got my number. I know what I like, I like robot voice.

The logo- at first glance I wondered why the hell you were posting about T2 since it came out about 14 yrs ago.
As for your lists, well, I've become immune to your opinions on movies & music. So far we haven't really read the same books, so I have yet to reach the point of total disregard of your opinion on books.
Oh & Stacy, you should give Usher another listen. Given your affinity for music other than Celine such as Snoop Dogg, you mike really like Usher. His song with Tim McGraw makes me happy every time I hear it- two extremely sexy men from two completely different worlds at one time... I can hardly breathe just thinking about it.

Usher makes me ill.
He's going to be the next Michael Jackson... getting freakier all the time, until children are scared of him.

Hot Babe - Don't you mean Nelly and Tim McGraw. Jeez, you are soooo suburban.
By , at 1:46 PM
How suburban??? oh yeah, usher is really hip and urban last I heard usher was playing every ten mnutes on my local top forty teeny bop channel.Dan and I can tease and humilate hot babe for our enjoyment but you can't.
By Stacy, at 3:21 PM
Yeah, Anonymous- only my friends can mock me for entertainment. I guess the fact that I work 40 hrs every M-F & then go to law school every Sat & Sun from 8:30am-4pm, listening to law lectures on CD in my car & at my desk, thus allowing me to only listen to music when my alarm goes off each morning when I'm not yet fully awake for me to fully comprehend the vocal distinction between Nelly & Usher since in my sleep I can't see Nelly's video with his stupid band aid on his face, makes me really suburban. If you want to say I'm wrong, no problem as it happens all too often for me. But it doesn't make me suburban. Bite me bitch.
By hot babe, at 4:03 PM
I was kinda hopin' that people would just post THEIR favorite lists and comment about how my opinions kick ass. But this Nelly/Usher East Coast/West Coast thing we got going on is just as well, I guess.
By dan, at 4:07 PM
Wow. Hot Babe, you sound really busy. It's truly amazing how you don't have any free time to listen to music, but you do seem to have enough free time to read other people's blogs and then post. Hmmmmmm?
By , at 5:38 PM
Violence!! Violence!! Anonymous pricks kind of bug me...But thanks, Dan, for giving me some exposure to movies & music I wouldn't have found elsewhere -- since I'm really a follower when it comes to music & movies. Books - haven't gotten back in the habit of reading since college. Maybe I should try some of the books you liked...
By Kiddo78, at 5:46 PM
When at the office I do find time in my day to blog, but yes, I actually am busy. But lame anonymous posters such as yourself only make me long for Former Original Anonymous/Hot Babe's Best Friend.
Dan, I think I'm aksing for a book or two for x-mas since I couldn't go shopping for 50 & 25 books with you, so I may have some new favortives soon. I have no top movie or music lists this year as I missed out the last few months. But "Wicked" was by far my favorite book this year. I highly recommend the book *and* the broadway show (which will start traveling next year). This isn't new to you since its all I talked about for months. But read the book first as the musical changes the story. Or just read the book. It made the fact that my 7 yr old neice was the Wicked Witch of the East for halloween even cooler.
By hot babe, at 6:36 PM
I'm only posting this since you asked for it. I copied off of you and did a top cds of 2004 list myself.
By Biglug, at 6:16 AM
Finally, someone else who appreciates Scissor Sisters! Maybe someday I might actually hear them on the radio instead of endlessly looping from iTunes on my computer at work...
