Possible reasons I can't think of a good list

* Accounting test Tuesday morning, Finance on Wednesday night
* The Nyquil I took
* I'm just lazy, and the meta-list-about-making-lists seems easy
* My inspiration was claimed by the recession
* There are literally no more list subjects to be covered
* We've reached the point where, much like latter period episodes of the Simpsons, most installations are just filler
* Ryan actually died six months ago, and a less capable replacement now writes this blog

Directing and casting changes I would make to the Harry Potter film series


* Sorceror's Stone would be directed by Terry Gilliam
* Chamber of Secrets would be directed by David Fincher
* Prisoner of Azkaban would remain directed by Alfonso Cuaron
* Goblet of Fire would be directed by Guillermo Del Toro
* Order of the Phoenix would remain directed by David Yates
* Half-Blood Prince would be directed by David Lynch
* Deathly Hallows would be directed by Michel Gondry


* Alan Rickman is fine as Professor Snape, but I'd be interested to see Crispin Glover play the character
* Professor Quirrell should have been played by Philip Seymour Hoffman
* Remus Lupin should have been played by Clive Owen
* No disrespect to Jim Broadbent, but Horace Slughorn is perfect for John Cleese
* Alastor Moody should have been played by Ray Winstone
