The Liebster Award

It's been awhile since I've been tagged in one of these! As far as I can see, I've only been tagged here we go!

The rules for this award are as follows:

  1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the person giving the award has set for you.
  3. Create 11 questions for the people you will be giving the award to
  4. Choose 11 people to award and send them a link to your post.
  5. Go to their page and tell them
  6. No tag backs.

Here's 11 things about me:
1) My favorite season is autumn.
2) I'm a proud mother.
3) Besides movies, I love watching baseball, soccer, and professional wrestling.
4) I cry easily in movies.
5) I love tattoos.
6) I can't sing, but I do it anyways (to my steering wheel)
7) I faked a nose bleed to get out of a boring lecture in college.
8) I work with teenagers and I think most of their tastes in movies are horrible.
9) I've been to 8 different countries.
10) I always text my dad after I see a movie to tell him what I thought of it and vise versa.
11) My first movie date with my now husband was to Kung Fu Hustle. We both hated it. 

What is the first film you remember watching? The Little Mermaid. I used to sing the songs all the time.

- If you could pick one film composer to score your life, who would it be? Hans Zimmer. Whenever a customer was rude to me. I'd want my response to be followed with a:BAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMM BAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMM...BAAAAAAAMMMMM BAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMM!!!

- On that note, how much of your music library contains film scores/soundtracks? Probably 1/4 of it. Currently, I have the following soundtracks (or bits of them) on my iPod: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Juno, Kick-Ass (hated the movie, loved the soundtrack) Life Aquatic, Ameile, The Lord of the Rings, various John Williams, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I, Thirteen, How To Train Your Dragon.

- Do you have a prized film poster on your wall? The walls of my first place were covered with them. Right now I have them all stored, but I do have a Spiderman 2 banner in my garage.

- Film (as in 35 mm etc.) or digital? Digital. From working as a projectionist, I get distracted by splices.

- Favourite foreign language film? Ohhh this is hard. I think Pan's Labyrinth. But Let The Right One In is close.

- Not including 'director' if you could have any type of role in creating a film, what would you like to do? Cinematographer. I'd love to have a hand in shooting the film.

- Desert Island Flicks - pick 5. Go! Crap. I don't even like desert island flicks. Castaway. The Blue Lagoon. Six Days and Seven Nights? (that was an island, right?) The Beach (I think that should count.) Lord of the Flies. That was hard to do without googling.

- If you could only choose to watch either dramas, or comedy films for the rest of your life (and this includes black comedies), which would you choose? I think I'd choose drama. I tend to like more dramas than comedies, and there are still plenty of funny parts in them. I have a very specific taste for comedy, my taste in drama is broader.

- Favourite animated feature (or short, if you like)? A Bugs Life. I freaking love that movie.

- First film festival you ever attended (or wish you attend. I've only gone to my first this year). I've never attended one, but I wish I could go to the Sundance Film Festival.

I've had this sitting in my edited posts for awhile now, and since then literally every blog I follow has been tagged. Therefore, I'm not tagging anyone new. Everyone's already done it. I'll hurry up next time.


  1. I think everyone who can't sing does it anyway :)

    You watch soccer and pro-wrestling too? Cool! Unless you're a John Cena fan, then minus 1 cool point. :P

  2. I love the fact that you and your dad always text each other after a movie. :)
