Asked by shpadoinkle_sue (7181 points ) October 4th, 2010

I saw this on another website and thought it was kinda neat. Especially since we have newer jellies. Pretty self explanitory, just name your top 5 books, movies, musicians, and websites other than fluther. If you have trouble deciding, go ahead and add a couple of extras. It can be your current favorites or all-time favorites, you decide.
Example –
Books:
1. The Tao of Pooh – Benjamin Hoff
2. 1984 – George Orwell
3. Where The Sidewalk Ends – Shel Silverstein
4. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – Douglas Adams
5. The Big-Ass Book of Crafts – Mark Montano
Movies:
1. Some Like It Hot
2. Singing In the Rain
3. Army of Darkness
4. Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle
5. Blazing Saddles
6. Three Caballeros
7. The Pirate
8. Wet Hot American Summer
I couldn’t decide which 5. :)
Musicians:
1. AC/DC
2. The Pogues
3. Beastie Boys
4. Mama Cass
5. Good Lovelies
