Friday Lists: For Your Consideration

This Friday, three lists currently making the rounds of pop culture sites and e-mail boxes are summarized below:

25 Movies with Real Impact
In their ongoing series of 25th-anniversary lists, the USA Today staff has compiled a list of the most important movie moments from the last quarter-century. I'm on board with the list-topping "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, but "The Cable Guy," "Total Recall" and -- I kid you not -- "The Bodyguard?"

100 Days That Changed Music
Blender magazine says that without these 25 watershed musical moments, we'd have "no mp3s, no LSD, no hip-hop, no soul-sucking corporate rock." Everything from January 31, 1955 (RCA demonstrates the first synthesizer) to November 16, 1985 (the day Starship's "We Built This City" reached No. 1). Don't worry -- this comprehensive list includes "Pet Sounds," the iPod, the Sex Pistols and the Sugarhill Gang. I think we approve.

Springfield's Best
Kudos to Vanity Fair for recognizing the genius that is "The Simpsons" with their take on the 10 funniest "Simpsons" episodes ever. A good list, but sadly lacking my favorite episode: "In Marge We Trust," which features a tear-inducing hilarious Japanese ad character named Mr. Sparkle ("I'm disrespectful to dirt!"), who bears a striking resemblance to Homer. (And don't miss the related link to VF's interview with former "Simpsons" writer/producer Conan O'Brien.)

Thoughts? Corrections? Additions? Praise? Share 'em below.
