If I Ruled the World

I got this from my blog-friend Katie's blog. I added a category at the bottom--hope she doesn't mind!

If I Ruled the World...
And could dictate how people spend their free time, at least a little of it...

A Meme by Katie P.

Movies I would make everyone watch, at least once: "The Princess Bride," "Garden State," "Finding Nemo," "Star Wars," "Dead Poets Society," "Wait Until Dark," "High Fidelity," all three "Lord of the Rings" movies, "One Hour Photo," "Return to Me," "Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind," "The Usual Suspects," "Finding Neverland," "Awakenings."

TV shows I would make everyone watch, at least once: "The Wonder Years," "Family Guy," "Lost," "Alias," "CSI"(Las Vegas), "House," "The Dead Zone."

Books I would make everyone read: "The Ragamuffin Gospel" by Brennan Manning; "The Sound & The Fury" by William Faulkner; "Don Quixote" by Miguel de Cervantes; "The Giver" by Lois Lowry; "Under the Big Sky" by Trevor Romain; "I, Robot" by Isaac Asimov; "Captivating" and "Wild at Heart" by John & Staci Eldridge; "The Once & Future King" by T.H. White; "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde.

Games everyone would know how to play -- and enjoy: Hotels, Aunt Mary's, Loaded Questions, Rummy 500, Cranium, Hit the Deck.

Songs I would make people listen to -- really listen to: "Vienna" by Billy Joel, "If You Want Me To" by Ginny Owens, "100 Years" by Five for Fighting, "Reasons Why" by Nickel Creek, "Blessed Be Your Name" by Matt Redman, "Perimeter of Me" by Ellery (formerly Dividing the Plunder)."

Theatre I would make people see, at least once: "Rent," "Wicked," "Les Miserables," "Death of a Salesman," "The Music Man," "The Blue Man Group," "Our Town," "The Glass Menagerie," "The Secret Garden."

And just so you know, I don't think I've EVER added that many links to anything...ever!
