    Steve, I was stupid and realized that after I posted. I always use that word to describe these movies, so I typed it without thinking. How do I get a mod to do that? Also, great noms! I love those films!

    Erik, it will be started up again tomorrow.

    Never mind that question, Steve, as I PM'ed mod Jason Whyte about it.

    BTTF 2?? I'm not so sure that qualifies. I'll see what others think.

    Some really great noms so far! [​IMG]

    I'm out of noms, so I'll throw out some suggestions:

    Thanks for fixing that, Michael. [​IMG]

    The list has been updated, and I'm going to give out two more noms, seconds, and thirds to everyone who has participated so far, and I'm also going to give myself one second and one third that I'll use later.
