Wednesday Morning Happenings: December 28, 2005.

Wire Tapping Update
I added just a couple of new entries to the Wire Tapping Link Repository this morning. I left last night's entries marked as **NEW** also.

Blawg Review Awards
Although the end of the year is always a time for a multitude of awards, you should consider sorting through the masses and checking out Blawg Review's 2005 Awards. There's links in there to some great stuff, and the awards post itself is entertaining and well-written. My only real disagreement is the nod given to Harriet's blog over Sam's blog for best nominee blog. Both entertaining, but Sam's is both entertaining and substantive. Sam got robbed.

National Film Registry
The National Film Registry recently voted to add 25 Films to the National Film Registry. The idea is to gather "significant" films and preserve them so that they are not ultimately lost.

This year's "inductees" include some of my personal favorite films:
Hoop Dreams
Cool Hand Luke
House of Usher
The Sting
Toy Story

Additionally, past nominees ranking among my personal favorites include:
The African Queen
American Graffiti
Animal House
Citizen Kane
Enter the Dragon
The Godfather
The Godfather II
It's A Wonderful Life
The Maltese Falcon
The Outlaw Josey Wales
The Sound of Music
To Kill a Mockingbird

If you are looking for a good flick to rent, start with some of the movies on this list. You can't possibly go wrong.
