Ran into a few snags working on my 101 list. One was on Feb 1 looking at my 'to do' list which say "Read a Fashion Mag B4 the end of Jan!". Oops. #31 on my 101 list is Read 1 fashion magazine a month, and for Jan 07 - I didn't. Now the total possible completion of my 101 in 1001 can only be 100 33/34 tasks. Sigh. It's actualy quite telling though, I never thought it would be a hard task at all. I buy the mags, I just don't tend to read them. It really shows that currently I'm not very focused on fashion.
The second snag I ran into was working on #4 - Get a copy of 2005 issue of Film Review year in review (for films released in 2004). I mailed in a back order request way back around Sept but never heard anything. So I went online, figuring I could order it that way. Then I found this. Sold out! Nnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! I'm not giving up on this one quite just yet. I'll check ebay and possible other sources. I've been getting it every year since 2001, and I really enjoy it. I started getting it because I was taking a film class that sparked my interest in film on a stronger level than before, and I wanted something that everything that was out recently rated. It's a UK publication and I like the non Hollywood glamed over perspective. It also lists a fair number of foreign films reviewed. Each review has a out of 5 star rating, picture, director & cast info and a review.
Oh a happy note, the 2007 issue of Film Review year in review is out and believe you me I snagged it up and happily paid the $26.17 (tax included) and had a lovely time reading it and over a nice cuppa tea. It's always a great read, and I find new films to add to my must see list!
