Some Top 10 Lists from Fellow Bloggers I'd Like to See

The wonderful thing about the blogging village is there are scads of people with differing experiences and opinions on everything, and it occurred to me that there are a few top 10 lists I would love to see some of my peers work on because I would love to read their opinions on a few subjects.

Semaj or Jimmy Aquino: 10 Favorite Movie Scores: Both Semaj and Jimmy Aquino of A Fistful of Soundtracks are both people who have a lot of experience and love for the art of movie scores, and I would be very interested seeing how they boil down their favorite work down to a short list.

Lee: 10 Least Favorite Toys or Top 10 Favorite Comic Book Villains: Originally I was just going to have the Comic Villain thing, as Lee is a huge comic book fan, and as such, he would likely be able to produce a thought-provoking and interesting list all around. But then he posted about trying to sell a Marky Mark doll from Planet of the Apes, and I now have to know what are the 9 other toys that he has owned that he can't stand or was disappointed in.

Samuraifrog: Top 10 movies in a particular genre. As of late, SF has been doing quite a few lists including lists about his favorite Transformers and G.I. Joe characters and his counter list for Entertainment Weekly's recent list of the 25 greatest active directors, and given the breadth of his film knowledge, I think he could make some interesting observations on genre cinema.

Jeremy Barker: 10 Favorite Pop Cultural Last Supper references. Over the years, Jeremy has done a lot of blogging work around representations of the Last Supper in pop culture, and I would be very interested in knowing which ones represented his favorites.

Of course, if someone made a similar suggestion to me, I would definitely consider it.

I'm working on an update to the massive Last Supper post, just in time for Easter. Once I get that off my plate I'll be happy to compile my Top 10.

Lee said...

I'm very happy to do both lists! This is such a great idea too because I'd like to read a couple of those other lists myself.

Jeremy: Well, that does make a lot of sense. On some level, I always forget that the original image is related to the upcoming holiday.

Lee: Jimmy Aquino ran with it.

Semaj said...

Good idea

I'll see what I can come up with. I'll try to have a top ten list up by Saturday or Friday.

MC said...

I look forward to reading it.

Megan said...

I'm still trying to think of something to suggest to you...

MC said...

I am glad people are running with these... they've been some really interesting lists so far.
