I love seeing lists of the media that have impacted people’s lives. The other day I saw someone post about 15 movies that had impacted them. Then I saw another person post 10 books that have stuck with them. Today, I thought about listing 5 of the earliest Internet memes I liked/stuck with me. Here are my lists.
I think if you choose to make a list of your own, you should do so first, and then compare notes with your friends. Just a thought.
The Princess Bride
Bringing Out the Dead
The Fifth Element
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
The Big Lebowski
A Serious Man
Stranger Than Fiction
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
The Grapes of Wrath
Kafka on the Shore
Dragons of Autumn Twilight (Dragonlance Chronicles, Volume I)
Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture
The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty (Sleeping Beauty Trilogy)
Five Earliest Remembered Internet Memes/Sites
I Kiss You! (1999? I remember earlier.)
Zombocom (1999, and still live!)
All Your Base Are Belong to Us (Invasion of the Gabber Robots – Laziest Men on Mars) (1998?)
