How completely freaking cool is this? Via Lifehacker, one of my many addictions.

  • You're it, but I promise if you'll show me yours....

    I found this on Kung Fu Monkey:
    The challenge is:

    Explain America to someone from somewhere else by giving them 10 movies to watch.

    The idea is not to give them a history lesson, so you don't have to start with The New World and end with Jarhead.

    What you're trying to do is give them a sense of who we are -- your take on our dreams, our attitudes, our idioms, what we think we are, what we are afraid we are, what we really might be." UM

  • Oh, damn, I am so not a movie geek. I'll have to think on that. Damn you, btw, now the gears are cranking on the question of what movies define our culture . . .

    And LL, isn't that just too cool?

  • God!(Allah! Yahweh! Tao, whatever, in an ecumenical spirit Little Orphan Ernie would never comprehend) This is list of movies is hard. I'm not a movie geek either--though I have had nearly twice your years to stumble upon appropriate movies.

    I am so opressed and depressed about America right now that the only list I can concentrate on is 10 movies showing how the greatest IDEA and PROMISE for a community in history went down the crapper ...I guess that will have to do! UM
