10 quite random things about myself and my obsession with old films

For the most part, I seem to spend about 88% of my time, either watching an old movie or talking about it. That small percentage away from old movies, I do obsess over other things... I swear! XD Anywho... here is the randomness of me, Enjoy!

1. Addicted is probably not strong enough a word to describe how much I utterly adore Marina and the Diamonds. Her music is just so brilliant and interesting, in that I've never quite heard music like hers before. There doesn't go a day, without me listening to at least one of her songs. Some of her songs, I can relate to so well, and they are just so much fun to listen to.

Recommended Songs: I would say her an entire album(The Family Jewels) but if you want to hear her absolute best, then I would suggest listening to either, "I am Not a Robot", or "Oh No!"

2. If I could be any two characters, from any movie, they would be: Nora Charles in "The Thin Man'' and Ann Lemp in "Four Daughters".

3. Favorite Leading Man of the 1940's(Not Including Jeffrey Lynn!) would definitely be Cary Grant, Robert Cummings, and William Prince.

4. Two actors, that I wish could have worked together would be Myrna Loy and Humphrey Bogart, Myrna Loy and Jeffrey Lynn, and Jeffrey Lynn and Jean Harlow

5. The 1930's are my favorite style decade, with the 1960's close behind.

6. If I could steal away any Myrna Loy look, it would be her amazingly brilliant striped dress, she wore in "The Thin Man". As a matter of fact, I would steal her entire wardrobe from that film.

7. I prefer watching Jeffrey Lynn in his more comedic roles, such as his role in "Four Daughters" or his very uptight role in "It All Came True". Even when his character is tensed up, the environment of the film is lighthearted.

8. I survive solely on these four shows: "CSI", "Infomania", "Deadly Women", and "Glee".( I confess to being an informative Deadly CSIer Gleek and I'm quite proud to admit it!)

9. I will NEVER read or watch anything to do with "Twilight". All I have to say to that is, BLEH!

10. I HATE HATE HATE Peanut Butter!

I know, you were not expecting that last one, were you???? Hahaha :D It's all in good fun, so if you want to join in, come on and have some fun! ;)

I totally agree on no. 9. I just don't get the whole Twilight thing.

I believe I have totally fallen for the 1930's style period also... not so much specifically the clothing but all of the design aspects of many facets of life... from cars to advertizing to architecture.. everything I seem to get obsessed with ends up being based in the 30's... now the peanut butter... I'm not on your page there! I eat Reeses Pieces every day! :)

Like you, there's no time in my life for Twilight.
