Meme-ing the day away...

I was just checking my email and received the latest Borders newsletter. They've just published their top 50 music albums and top 50 movies. Apparently they've made this list from the votes of Borders customers. I was wondering how accurate it is in relation to my flist. It's a fairly generic list, but I am surprised at where Pet Sounds got ranked!

1. Bold the titles you own.
2. Underline the titles you like and want to own.
3. Italicise the titles you haven't seen/listened to.
4. Put an asterisk next to your favourites.
