Blue Velvet is a great movie, disturbing but if you can watch it to the end, it is well worth the effort. That sex scene still haunts me, you know what I mean. ;)


Where did you get "Ed"?

Yes, the sex scene did have a twisted kind of Freudian edge that momentarily intensified the general luridness of Lynch's style that reminds me of a David Salle painting.
Humble yourself or the world will do it for you -it was either Russell or Whitehead. I can't remember which.

Side Note:

The English Leather by MEM would be #1, the one made by DANA is #2, so I just put it at #2 because I can't find the original E.L. anymore.

True but listing colognes you would wear is a little gay tbh. ;)

I wear man sweat for men, real men, who are athletic, good at charming the ladies and one hell of a lover. And in no way is it pretentious or expensive, like most colognes. ;)

No offence Pav, I'm sure you bat for the correct team, and have the right uniform for a womans' man etc... did anyone see those Nicks, et al? :)

On a side note Ashton Kutcher can't act like Keanu Reaves. Still if acting depended on being good at it, a lot of careers would never of happened. Perhaps they show us how it shouldn't be done, so that when it is done well, we know the difference. Richard Gere is also not great, I think looks are just as important as acting to the general public, who after all decide what movies succeed.

No offense taken, and I am straight, but we've already had most visited websites. I just did cologne because I couldn't think of anything at the moment. Would anyone like to start a new Top 5 list and we'll just start over.

Hmm, well I've posted a few times already but it is a good idea. Nicks have a shot, but a slim one. :)

Oh God who am I kidding I know jack shit about baseball. :P

EDIT: I vote Stoics should count.

Yeah but it's nice and easy, and might lead to another five that isn't already mentioned. Should stay really. It's a nice jokers are wild card.

Can't use the other one, not everyone uses cologne, so it's at least a suitable replacement.

Hell it's your thread Pav you decide..?

Probably a good idea would be to put up another 5 on a totally different subject, since you have the honour of being last?

You forgot the top listed answer according to our survey for both women and men, have wank, or a kit kat shuffle as it's loosely known by women in this country.

There are more, like fantasising over you dream girl/guy accordingly, but usually they lead to the former.

Sleep when you don't need to is good too. For when your so bored, banging your head against the wall relentlessly no longer keeps you focused. And so on...

I like this thread it stops me from banging my head against the wall. Hell those brain cells need a break right?
