Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Lists of Five: 2003 Edition:

Following the lead of Michele and David, I thought I'd start posting year-end Top Five lists, too. So here's my first one: Top 5 Painful Places I Got A Zit This Year 5. In my left ear, two days after I began sleeping with earplugs in to drown out my hu... [Read More]


Five blogs I MUST read every day:

1. A Small Victory
2. The Bleat (Lileks)
3. InstaPundit
4. Little Green Footballs
5. USS Clueless

I caught the last 30 minutes of "Winged Migration" a few weeks ago (on HBO?), and was entranced...can't wait to see the whole thing.

Birds make me smile.

Maybe I should round out my previous list with four more lists, so I will have five lists of five:

Five famous people I have seen in person:
1. John F. Kennedy, Sr.
2. Al Sharpton
3. Tom Ridge
4. Mariska Hargitay
5. Pope John Paul II

Five favorite movies:
1. Star Wars (the original one, when it was just called Star Wars)
2. Saving Private Ryan
3. Saving Grace (the 1985 one with Tom Conti)
4. Man for All Seasons
5. Star Trek IV

Five people whose names I'd like to see in a headline, followed by the words "died suddenly of natural causes"
1. Hillary Clinton
2. Bill Clinton
3. Michael Moore
4. Susan Sarandon
5. Kim Jong Il

Five bloggers I'd like to meet in person:
1. Michele Catalano
2. James Lileks
3. Steven Den Beste
4. Glenn Reynolds
5. Donald Sensing

Ugh. About that last category there Michele, I'd have to put O'Reilley at 1, 2, 3, 4, AND 5. What a pissy little wanker. He's my Ann Coulter.

No 'Two Towers' or did you see it in 2002?

The Zeppelin disks were something fans needed--a real live album from when they ruled the rock world. Granted it's long in places (I do skip over the 19 minute rendition of "Moby Dick), but for those of us too young (Michele included) to appreciate their power, "How the West Was Won" is a godsend.

I appreciate the downgrading of my age, Sean, but I was a Zep fan way back from their powerful days as rock icons. I love them then - I care a lot less for them now.

Though if someone put the new album on while I was in the room I would probably end up not only enjoying it, but enjoying the flashbacks as well.

You mean my wife, son, and I were not the only people in the country to watch Winged Migration?!? We bought the DVD for our son and we were all entranced and delighted with the movie. I guess that's what happens when your wife works with birds for a living. Thanks for the idea of lists of five! Will have to do the same over at Certus Veritas. Keep up the good work.
