Listal Experiment: Randomness

I first clicked on N. Wolfgang's 'Movies about Artists' list, which had been promoted recently.

I looked at the first item, which was the movie 'The Agony and the Ecstasy.' I haven't seen the movie before, so I clicked on it.

I then looked under the tags and clicked on 'cave'.

Under the many movies tagged in 'cave,' I picked out 'Wolf Creek,' a movie I haven't heard of before.

Looking under the actors, I picked at random Ketsie Morassi.
I quickly clicked on a pic of her at random.

I scrolled down until I saw "People who voted for this also voted for" and saw only Caique Carvahlo's list called "Diva, cute and dead".

Within that list, I scrolled down until I saw a name that interested me. I clicked on Vinessa Shaw.

I looked under her movies, and scrolled down until I saw a movie called Two Lovers and clicked on it.

I had never heard of this one, so I looked over the description of this movie and added it to my netflix queue.

Sometimes it's more fun to go on a walkabout with tag, movie and actor titles. After all, I probably wouldn't have heard of or found "Two Lovers" if I hadn't decided to just go in a random direction. Also, I still have the choice to watch the other movies I looked over to get to this one. In this process, I looked over two lists, two actresses, and three movies. It only took a few minutes to do this.

Sometimes by continuing to investigate links, you can find yourself reading about a movie, actor, or artist that you previously knew nothing about.

I'm going to trace one such experience through this experiment. I'm going to start on a list, and click on things with no plan until I discover something I didn't previously see or know about, and at the end I'm going to watch whatever I end up finding.

Try it yourself. Start on a list, and see where it takes you. Let me know what movie, actor, or other info you found.

Cool idea!

I find myself doing this kind of thing all the time,...I'm just too disorganized to chronicle it. I might have to try. Good idea.

@TrekMedic: I do it a lot too. That's why I wanted to make a list out of it, and follow the path one might take steering through the unknown. I just wrote down everything I did after I did it, in order to keep track for this list.
