Alphabetical Movie Project

For anyone new to my blog asking the understandable question “What the hell is this Alphabetical Movie thing he keeps blogging about,” here is a little more information.  Basically, I’m watching every movie I own in Alphabetical order.  Yes, this is kind of crazy.

If you are interested in the rules of the project, this blog entry covers them.

This page is where I’m going to list every movie I’ve watched and, eventually, I’ll fill it in with links to the blogs I’ve written.  I’ve been blogging off and on over the course of the project so sometimes there is a blog entry and sometimes there isn’t.  Give me a break, man, I’m only human!

    OK, there’s nothing that I find more enjoyable, after a late night of trolling Yahoo Answers — “Help! I just swallowed 30 zantac instead of my low dosage aspirin, don’t cha know that it prevents Alzheimer as well as improves long term cardiovascular disease, am I going to die?”; “I think my boyfriend is gay! I just caught him Gagnam Style, like 100 times in a row — have to admit though the dub beat is really catchy”; “OMG, I need to loose five pounds by Monday or I’ll never be able stand up and audition for this year’s Brainard Brainard Community theater’s Grease. -_-

    Then to surf the Internet at Google sub 1,000,0000, i.e. http://millionshort.com/ Which, of course, is nothing negative to say about you blog, except perhaps that your not in the Alexa 100. Or, perhaps even in the upper 50%… And that your target demographic might skew somewhat heavily toward feline, domesticated animals that stray too close to undefended blue tooth keyboards and wifi moorchers who are forced to enter their email address on you’re landing page in order to log onto the Internet through your ancient linksys routher that you never could figure out how to turn authentication on for. But certainly it’s not for me to pass judgment.

    My only suggestion was, while organizing and scheduling movie viewing acts around, their titular collation sequence and certainly warrants honorable mention in my own, personal “OCD — Misc. Achievements in Modern, European/Americas popular Visual Media” score card. Could I suggest, what would be perhaps a more organic approach, though less mnemonic (unless you, for instance happen to be a triathlon or marathon runner) Would be to organize your movies my date. I actually watched something on the order of 1000 movies, from lumiere brothers and Méliès to Edison and Grithith, back again for Schreck, Murnau and Lang and then finally the explosion of talkies and the late 1929/1930 musicals: Gold Diggers! Top Hat! Flying Down to Rio! (twice).

    After the first couple of weeks you actually find yourself in the mindset of the turn of the (20th) century film goer, only compressed and accelerated. Every week brings a new style and sensibility. Every month new techniques, whole technologies or conception of what cinema is. Actors appear on the scene, grow, master, command, and self destruct before your eyes in literal time lapse photography!

    Well, at least that’s my two cents.
