I too love this list.
You were right - we have some in common & I can't believe I missed some of these on mine! The "Seeing New Worlds" choice (I intended to have that on my list, I have a feeling I didn't put it on.. *will be rushing back to check & possibly edit in a second lol*). "Jim Henson's.." (I love Labyrinth). "Realizing that strangers aren't as strange as they seem" - a great choice also =D

Wow! This thing is racking up the votes-- and for good reason! Fantastic list man! You covered a ton of ground here. Some really great/original ideas and sources of "love".
Also in a sense there was a lot of stuff here that was of no surprise to me at all, which I think is cool, cuz it just goes to show how well I've gotten to know your tastes on this site. Hmmm, don't see how I could top this one. Great job!

it would have been nice to see movie titles/movie dialogues etc for 2nd third images but nonetheless very nice list :)
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at Jul 17 18:56
Fabulous list! Far and away one of my favorites so far. I loved Magnolia and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, too. And there are so many other things on this list that made me smile, laugh, or nod in agreement -- too many to list.
