“That’s not strange at all”

Monday April 30, 2012 is a special day for me. You see one year ago I was feeling a little bored and wanted to do something to keep myself busy. While figuring what to do with myself, I just so happened to watch a video on youtube about 100 movie quotes in 200 seconds.

And like that I got my inspiration, I love movies, I use movie quotes all the time when I talk to people, why not do a movie quote as my status update on facebook for 100 days. The goal was to have it like me and my brothers, where one person does a movie quote than someone does another quote from the movie. I set some ground rules for myself,: 1. If a person commented I would respond as soon as possible with another quote from the movie, 2. I couldn’t use a quote already used, 3. I couldn’t use the same movie twice in the 100 days, and 4. I couldn’t use any source but my own memory for the quotes (no IMDB). I thought it would be fun to try, I didn’t know it would take on a life of it’s own.

Well it got out of hand real quick, I mean it really kicked it up a notch. I hit 19 comments on my second day. I kept posting quotes and people kept commenting. By day 12 I hit 27 comments which is more responses to a facebook status of mine ever, this includes birth of my children. Some days I got no responses, some days over 30. I had friends I had spoken to you in a while become constant contributors. I had to create new rules, I couldn’t do really good movie quotes on weekends or universal days off as people didn’t check their facebook. I also started saving my all time great quotable movies for Fridays when people were just treading water at work (and also when I usually sitting around to get a case heard at court). Comedies and action films do the best.

When I hit the 100 day mark, I realized I still had a shit load of movies to post so I decided to soldier on. And on. And on. Finally one day someone at the gym asked me if I had ever not used a movie quote as my status update and it dawned on me, I was getting close to a year of quotes. I had to stay the course. Well that day has come. After Monday I am taking a break.  Before I sign off I am leaving you a list of most responded to movies.
