Playing the saxophone...

People who added this item 140  Average listal rating (69 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.2 
7. Bird (1988)
Notes: I played the saxophone for 8 years. First, only with my teacher and then also with some bands. I played in 5 different bands from various styles from Blues to Jazz and even Turkish music. Of course, my favorite were the Reggae bands. I did something like 15-20 concerts and even recorded a few demo's but it never became really serious. But now, I don't play at all anymore. I know, it is a big waste but what can I say?!? I'm just a lazy bump...

11. Seabiscuit (2003)
Notes: My wife loves horses and owns one. When I met her, I thought it was the oportunity to learn horse riding. After a while I was quite able to ride the damn thing. But after 6 months, I fell off pretty bad (no injuries though) which is actually something common in horse riding (they say you have to fall 100 times to learn horse riding properly!). Anyway, after 6 months, I fell off, got fed up with the whole thing and just quit. Give a me break! At least, I tried...

Excellent list, man! I too used to read a lot of books, play video games and music before I started to become obsessed with movies. I, however, am still trying to keep those pastimes up. You've really put me in perspective of how much I'm gonna have to manage my time between movies and everything else.
(PS. Love the car joke at the end! I don't give a shit about cars either.)
