Up to 15.  Hopefuly CJones will be feeling well enough to get his list in tonight or early this coming week.  A quick check makes me suspect we broke the 25 point 1 list barrier.  Yay!

Cool, I like that. Westerns was the first LOC I hosted that did that (27 points was the entry point) and, while there were movies that were obviously going to make it (everything in the top 10), it did add some mystery, especially in the first 10 to 20 entries. We all needed at least one other voter to get an entry on the 50. And even that wasn't a guarantee (there were a couple that wound up on 3 lists, that didn't make the grade)

Well I'm glad we got at least 15 lists, that's pretty amazing. Just off-hand does anybody know the record for how many lists submitted? I'm asking because I'm too lazy to find out myself.

The first one I participated in had 24 lists (LoC #56, Fictional Crushes)

Edit: and a quick look at ones I thought might be popular... List of Crap #23: Top 50 MST3k Episodes, had 34 lists.

But that was just from a brief sampling. Don't know if its a record high.

Frankly, I don't think it's the "exploitation movies".  A lot of the mainstream movies at the time were responding to America post-Watergate, Vietnam, the post-free love era and America in general so there's a lot of themes of disillusionment and disenfranchisement.

myeah, it was a barrel of laughs. Thank god for Cheech & Chong.

Hah! After my last post, I went back and looked at the first LoC I participated in (fictional crushes), and found a mistake!

Marcia Brady should have been ranked at the #25 slot with 43 points. Now D.B. Barnes misspelled her name, so maybe that's why Johnny missed it, as did I and everyone else back then. 7 years later and now it can be told - Marcia, Marcia, Marcia was robbed of her place in LoC history.

And before you say it, sorry can't fix a broken heart... or a nose

Finally feeling better. List sent. Thanks for waiting  :)

So that should be at least 16 lists.

16 indeed.  I suspect I won't be getting any more, but I will say that if someone wants to get another one in there, I'll be tabulating for a few days.  16 is a great number though.

Tabulation complete.  I'm on vacation for a little bit, so we will begin on Tuesday!
