I have been playing "top" since about 9 years ago when I met my friend Bruce, he was interviewing me for a job. (He became my boss before my friend.)
"Top 3 bands?" he asked. I was flabbergasted. What kind of interview is this? He proceeded to ask about movies and books, and I recently generated top three for TV shows after rewatching Twin Peaks. So here are mine;
-Harold and Maude
-The Royal Tenenbaums
-Catcher in the Rye
-The Unbearable Lightness of Being
-Still Life With Woodpecker
-Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I love asking people this. And I try to always be prepared with my tops.
I asked Emilia's husband (then fiance) once about movies (since that's his jam), it might have been best movies of the decade that I asked about though, being freshly into 2010. He was a little caught off guard, unprepared with a list, but he ended up emailing me a well thought out list of like, 100. It was awesome.
How bout you all?
*I first thought of blogging about this after generating the TV top three, but I was embarrassed about the book section. Guys, I am not as literary as you all. This is a loose list here, one that I am not passionately attached to, so I feel a little, I dunno, like I shouldn't be claiming it, but I have to claim something. Anyways, after Michael**
**speaking of michael AKA the Flashdance, have you guys entered to win a free room at the Ace for his industry night?!??!
