A Bit of News from Across the Blogosphere

Posted by Whit Barringer , Monday, June 09, 2008 3:37 PM

Just a quick moment of your time and a break from the Washington Journal series.

As most of you know, I have another blog that I started for a class my sophomore year called Voice from the Depths of the Cultural Coil. It hasn't seen a lot of action lately (for that, I'm deeply regretful - once you fall out of practice, it's hard to get back in). As evidenced by my newest review of the new Indiana Jones movie, I'm rusty.

However, I saw something recently that made me rather upset, too. The story is over at the Voice, but I'll repost it here.

Yahoo better circle up those wagons, because I’m on a raiding party.

Who in the world uses Yahoo? They apparently have very questionable tastes.

Yahoo! recently released a user-rated top 30 animated film list - of all time. I’ve never seen such a travesty of a list. I realize that the chaos of a million 12-year-olds does not off-set the more seasoned animated film watchers, but Lawd have mercy this list needs revamping.

That’s why I’m going to start a 16 week series of a revised top 30 countdown. Why not? I’ve got the time now. I’ll do my best to update it every Thursday. The first entry will have three films, and the last will have only one - the number one. Oh, and you don’t have to look at that list if you don’t want to - I’ll recap that list as I go along.

Hope to see you all around!

Well, there you have it. I've got sixteen weeks to churn out a 30 movie list. I'm going to go see some of the new movies that are out just so I can put them in if need be, so this is going to be an up-to-date list as well.

Now back to the Washington Journals series. Thanks for your time!
