Ed's Top Ten Movie Picks:

1. Edward Scissorhands
A great story that hits on many levels;
visually stunning; Diane Wiest's "sticky sweet" charachter made this movie!
2. Schindler's List
One of the best movies ever made!
3. What's Eating Gilbert Grape
The only Leonardo DiCaprio film that
doesn't make me vomit.
4. Slingblade
I still like the movie despite all the Carl impersonations.
5. Misery
I love Kathy Bates!!! The movie also shows alternative uses for typewriters.
6. Conan the Barbarian
Great opening sequence....Great musical score.
7. History of the World, Part 1
I learned more about history from
this movie than I did in high school. The Inquisition is the best!
8. My Left Foot
A college professor forced me to watch this
movie--thank you Dr. Kiraly.
9. Heathers
The Ultimate Revenge Movie!
10. Poltergeist
This movie can scare the hell out of any third
grader. What intrigues me about this movie is what went on behind the scenes.

Honorable Mention:
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover
Great recipe ideas!

Ed's Top Ten Favorite Music Contributions

1. Gustav Mahler
Everything in life, and death, has specific meaning.
Mahler's "Farewell" in the final strains of his Ninth Symphony is the most profound music ever written.
2. Leonard Bernstein
His range of talents made him one of the best
composers and conductors on the 20th Century.
3. Jonathan Larson
His hope-filled message lives on with the musical
"Rent". No day but today!
4. Basil Poledorus
Able to capture the essence of every mood and scene.
5. Philip Glass
A college professor once mentioned that we should not consider his "works" as music--yet, why does it move me they way only music can?
6. Madonna
Most people who know me are surprised to find out I'm a fan of her music.
7. Space Music
Ultimate relaxation.
8. Hector Berlioz
Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14--who needs drugs when you have this stuff.
9. Kronos Quartet
The most innovative arrangements of string quartet
10. Johan de Meij
The greatest living composer. "The Lord of the
Rings" is absolutely brilliant!
