Wow, the year is flying by! I just noticed I hadn't done this at all in 2016. Might as well make sure I get at least one of these in. Of course, I'm talking about The Spot the Movie Titles contest. The way it works is simple. I've written a rap verse in which I've stuffed chock full o' movie titles. Your job is to guess how many that is. There might only be one. Then again, there could be one hundred one. Count carefully. Post your guess in the comments section below, or tweet it to me @w_ott3. If tweeting, please use #SMTCONTEST.
There is one little tweak to the game. Last time around, people were listing out all the titles they saw. If you do this, the unintended consequence is that the people behind you can just build off of your work. Therefore, In order to maintain the mystery for all players...
DO NOT POST ANY OF THE MOVIE TITLES YOU SPOT IN YOUR COMMENT.
ONLY POST THE NUMBER OF TITLES YOU THINK THERE ARE IN THE VERSE.
ANYONE VIOLATING THIS RULE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND MAY HAVE THEIR COMMENT DELETED.
In other words, casual conversation about the contest is encouraged, but posting a list of titles is not. To further clarify, this is okay...
"Man, that was tough. I came up with 15."
This is not...
"Man, that was tough. I came up with
Lethal Weapon 4"
What the Winner Gets
Free advertising on Dell on Movies on each of my next 7 posts.
Should the winner be the proud owner of a blog, podcast, youtube channel, etc., I will link to something of yours, of my choosing, every post until the allotted number is filled. I will also tweet those links out. If you win, but don't have one of those things, I'll happily just pimp your twitter handle and choose a tweet of yours to do so for the same time frame.
The winner will be announced in a post revealing all the answers on Wednesday September 28, 2016.
Here is your verse (purposely leaving out all capitalization)...
born into brothels in the city of god
took a walk to remember with a suicide squad
trying to escape my strange twist of fate
law abiding citizen in a land that legislates hate
so great - our journey begins with the 39 steps
into the wild our battle cry freedom or death
catch your breath then step up revolution might be coming
so be on your best behavior 'cuz we're good will hunting
for the nice guys, wise guys, the final girls, the survivors
to ride along from dusk til dawn in our chariots of fire
a hellraiser built to withstand pain & gain
changing lanes with the speed of a runaway train
black rain we bring it on singing a song for the fallen
the quest for peace and justice for all is the calling
the goal, the game plan nothing else accepted, jack
we're bustin' loose with the juice now analyze that
