I'm quite positive that I'm missing some, if not many, sites. If yours is one of them, post a link in the comments. I scoured the backlinks, Technorati, and Google (and spent way too much time), but I wanted to get them all. I hope I came close.

And if you managed to make it all the way through that, you get to see my reward (click to enlarge):


34 people have chosen wisely: on "The Alphabet Meme - Now I Know My ABCs Waaaay Too Well"

Also, I was told we'd all get free ponies once you became King of Google.

Hi! Fletch,

Darkcitydame, here!...(aka The Editor.,) I linked back to your blog from my other..hmmm...dare I say it?!?...EBLOGGERSPOT!!!... ha!


Ric Burke said...

I loved this meme and I did take part.

Here's my link.

Adam Ross said...

This is really impressive how many blogs took part in this. Nice work, Fletch.

I still maintain my alphabet was the best.

Fletch said...

Thanks to you all for the updates. I will edit the post to reflect these as well. Please direct all hate mail for their exclusion to Google or Technorati. Thanks! ;)

Stacia, that pony thing was a horrible rumor started by someone that hates me. There's a number of those people out there, so I have asked for an investigation by the International Blogging Council (IBC) to get to the bottom of it. I'm told I'm 4,367th on the list, so don't hold your breath. Worst case scenario - I will send images of ponies to all of you, courtesy of my friends at Google Image Search.

Marcy said...

I linked back to your blog as well here!

Awesome meme, btw.

Nick said...

I know you missed a couple of the people that I tagged, such as Kano's Kogitations and His Gal Friday... and I'm pretty sure they linked back to you. But I'm too lazy to go and get their links.

Oh... and why am I way down in the 80s? I feel so unloved... :(

Caitlin said...

I've only just gotten around to doing this, but it was a great idea. Some of the letters took me a while, but on the other hand others (Q, namely) were easy just because I could only think of one movie off the top of my head.

Linda said...

Now this was fun! http://motherofthebride.blogspot.com/2008/11/alphabet-movies.html

Great idea.....

Hi Fletch, great idea!

Daniel said...

Good lord, man - congrats! Good thing I followed up on you tagging me. I'd have felt left out by now.

Fletch said...

Everybody...got you.

And Nick, don't feel bad. For the most part, the list is in reverse order of who did it. I know that's not ideal, but that's just the way I happened to find/list them, and altering that is not a job I want.

Alex said...

I don't think I'm on this list, and it's a bit late now, but I did participate!


Kano said...

Yes, I did do it too.


Jonas Nordin said...

Here's another from Stockholm, Sweden


Gareth said...

And here's mine:


Thanks for the inspiration...

Nell Minow said...

Thanks for inspiring this!


Daniel said...

Two other peeps picked up from my tags:



StinkyLulu said...

Mine here:


Bob Turnbull said...

Just when you think it's safe to shut down the meme...

Here's mine. I did three separate lists in the one post (one of all documentaries) so I think I deserve 3 links. Or at least 3 pony images...

Mattie Lucas said...

Fletch, I did it several weeks ago and linked back to you:


Kirby Holt said...

I got tagged by Film Babble Blog - didn't see his link, here it is:


And here's mine:


I "bent" the rules a bit, but you know me, have to be different ...

At least one of my contributing writers is also doing his own list, will give you that link when it's posted.

Alex Constantin said...

Hi there.


thanks :)

Anonymous said...

Thanks for compiling all these links! I hope I have time to peruse them soon. And #55 and #107 are both me, and if you modify the list, I'd prefer the one at #107 to be kept. I crosspost my blog to livejournal, so I apologize for the double pingback.

Yay, you got me to update my personal film blog after, what, six months? Hopefully I can keep it going:



Criticlasm said...

Here's mine! :)

I got tagged by the Self-Styled Siren and Filmbrain. My list is up at my site.

Unknown said...

I was tagged by the Lightning Bug...

So I did:

As far as I know, no one tagged me, and my ego's sufficiently bruised...but here you are anyway:
