Th3 2o:oL C0nt3st

Are we slumpin' or what? I've got a thing that might just get us out of it: 20:07! With it's current state of retirement, I thought I'd -- for one night only -- take it under my wing, and host a little contest of guessing. 21 stills from 21 films at their 20th minute and 7th second Some are easier than others, and the person that guesses the most wins. Wins what? An award. What award? [...] An award. Well, that got us nowhere. Welcome to JMC, baby!

I also recognize that Nat has already done this. But I'm really bored. And by the time I realized that and wrote these words I was more than five hours into it, so there. Now, like him, I'm closing comments and all guesses can be sent to Ted1015@aol.com with a subject somewhere near 'The 20:07 Contest', or the way with the correct lettering of the post title, because anything less than that will be confusing, taken as spam and deleted, so be careful. And all this is ironic because I wanted comments for this! But it turns out that it works better through e-mail. Okay? Maybe I'll open up comments tomorrow or Friday if my fears that NO ONE reads my blog turn out true. Please don't let that happen. Guess, PLEASE!!!!

Thanks! I've proudly displayed it in my awards section. This WAS fun; I swear, though, I thought that was snow in that Titanic picture.

What a great idea for a game/contest. It almost makes me want to have a party just to play this game.
