What's on your personal, pop culture Bucket List?

Bucketl_lIn honor of both The Bucket List, the new movie starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman (pictured) as terminally-ill road-trippers, and the fact that there’s very little to write about between Christmas and New Year’s, we ask you: What do you want to see, hear, read, or experience before you kick it? Feel free to dream big like my friend Sheila, who just said "I wanna see David Beckham’s naked body on my bed before I die. That, my friends, is entertainment." Or, make your to-dos somewhat realistic, like those that at the start of my much-abbreviated list:

• Attend a concert at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.

• Listen to Steve Martin’s comedy albums.

• See a Montgomery Clift movie on the big screen. Preferably Red River at a drive-in.

• Introduce a daughter or a niece to Buffy the Vampire the Slayer — and watch her "get it." Ditto for NewsRadio.

• Randomly meet Michael Bublé at a karaoke bar when I’m drunk enough to suggest that we duet — and he’s far enough gone to do it.

• Stand behind Tim McGraw.

• Track down whoever was going to write My Best Friend’s Divorce, the sequel to My Best Friend’s Wedding, and find out what would have happened.

• Force the phrase "nut guard" to catch on.

• Read Katie Holmes’ autobiography.

    4) Kick-ass on “Jeopardy”
    5) Star in major motion picture romatic comedy/drama in which Cillian Murphy, Jude Law, Clive Owen, Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt vie for my affections at various locations in NYC, London, Paris, Rome and Venice.

    Finally get chosen to be on “Millionaire” after passing the test four times–TV or movie week please.
    Ditto on “Jeopardy” (minus the passing the test part)
    Standing on a Broadway stage (oh wait, I did that at “Hairspray” during a backstage tour–and immediately was told to get off–and three onstage seating visits to “Xanadu”)
    Visiting the ABBA museum if and when it opens.

  • Em

    1) Go to Greece
    2) Be a Jeopardy contestant (a goal many share!)

  • luvhoney

    Meet George Strait.
    That is all.

  • Cat lover

    - Be the next Sanjaya since, even though I sing well in the shower/car, I can’t hold a note in public.
    – Reinstate family feud, but with a boxing ring and my in-laws.
    – Kidnap Johnny Depp and keep him as my love slave. *purrr*
    – Tell Posh just how little anyone cares about her scrawny butt.
    – Get the members of Metallica back together and out of rehab so they can create another masterpiece like the Black Album.
    Too much to do, so little time.

  • GeeMoney
