Getting those two lists down to 20 each was easy: I marked every film my wife or I had ever owned on VHS, laserdisc, or DVD. Then I added a couple titles (It's A Wonderful Life, Unforgiven), which get a bye into the finals. (What's the point in making up my own lists if I can't break my own rules?)

I try not to get caught up in what's cool and uncool in music. I was enjoying listening to "Never Surrender" by Corey Hart today, and I thought to myself "This is a good song. Could I put this song on a playlist, but not as a punchline?" I was really enjoying the song un-ironically...then the saxophone solo began. That sealed the deal. Too silly to be taken seriously.
