Top Fives


Writing is good therapy for me.  Not being on the radio every day, I feel that my creativity is down.  Being able to write certainly helps me to start thinking a bit broader.  Any writer will tell you that inspiration can be found almost everywhere, you just need to find those things that inspire.  Facebook can sometimes be that inspiration.  I have three or four ideas that I am writing about now, but for today – here’s a bunch of lists.  Perhaps, it will get you to know me a bit better.

A buddy of mine posted this on Facebook, so I posted it on my page as well.  Some of these were more difficult than others to answer.  If more questions come in, I’ll probably save them for a future write up.  For now – here are the answers to those who asked…..

Top Five Flavors (Lee)

  1. Chocolate
  2. Strawberry
  3. Mint
  4. Banana
  5. Lemon

Musical Bands (Steve)

  1. The Beatles
  2. The Rolling Stones
  3. Queen
  4. Dave Clark Five
  5. Led Zeppelin

Musical Artists (Steve)

  1. Dean Martin
  2. Elvis Presley
  3. Roy Orbison
  4. Frank Sinatra
  5. Andrea Bocelli

Radio Personalities (Joseph)

This one is SO difficult, but I will name those who were an early influence to me.

  1. Jim McKenzie
  2. Paul Christy
  3. Richard D.
  4. Johnny Molson
  5. Casey Kasem

Favorite Comedians (Jane)

This is also difficult, because there are so many of them.

  1. Jack Benny
  2. Redd Foxx
  3. George Carlin
  4. Don Rickles
  5. Robin Williams

Movies (Aaron)

This is next to impossible to narrow down to five.  I would prefer to do this by genre, but even that would be difficult.  Right now I am doing the 10 movies that had an impact on me on Facebook, which narrows it down a bit.   At this very moment, I have decided that I can’t answer this unless I am given a genre.  WAY TOO difficult to narrow all the movies I love down to a top 5.

Pick Up Lines I Have Heard (Christina)

  1. Got any Italian in you?  Want some?
  2. (Licks finger and touches girl’s shirt) Let’s go somewhere and get you out of those wet clothes.
  3. Tie your shoes!  I don’t want you falling for anyone else!
  4. I know you are busy today, but can you add me to your “to do” list?
  5. My lips are like Skittles.  Wanna taste the rainbow?

Foods (Deb)

  1. Lasagna
  2. Tacos
  3. Ravioli
  4. Steak
  5. Chicken

Sex Positions (Warren and Christopher)

I know that it says ask me anything … I’m sorry, boys, but this one is not for public knowledge.  If you need ideas….go to the library and check out a book …. or a porno movie.

Current Songs (Pam)

Music is also something that is easier for me to narrow down if you ask for a genre or format.  I asked Pam to narrow it down and she said “current music”.  To me, some of today’s music is just awful.  There are some songs that I think are ok and that people dance to at gigs – these are those songs.

  1. Can’t Stop the Feeling – Justin Timberlake
  2. Feel It Still – Portugal, the Man
  3. Perfect – Ed Sheeran
  4. Love Runs Out – One Republic
  5. Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars

Songs I Played in High School Band (Chris)

  1. Four of a Kind (Trumpet feature)
  2. Tin Pan Alley
  3. Hall of Fame March
  4. Sing, Sing, Sing
  5. The Seventies

Comedy Movie Lines (John)

This one is also SO unfair!  There are SO many lines from each of my favorite comedy movies.  Maybe I need to do a top five lines from each movie at some point….for now….here are these:

  1. “I am serious.  And don’t call me Shirley” (Airplane)
  2. “Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries” (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
  3. “What knockers!” (Young Frankenstein)
  4. “It looks good on you though!” (Caddyshack)
  5. “It’s a beautiful place, Bob” (Blues Brothers)

Thanks everyone!
