The Best of Tom Hanks

I think, nay I know,  Tom Hanks is one of the best actors of our time.  As a tribute, the following are my top 10 Tom Hanks movies of all time.  This was inspired by a buddy that spontaneously sent me his top 10 Sylvester Stallone movies via text message a few days ago, coupled with the fact that we ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp over the weekend.  Assembling a top 10 of Tom’s movies is one of the more difficult things I’ve ever had to do.  Here’s my best shot,  I had to shortcut by combining the Toy Story movies, but I could make an argument for all of the honorable mentions to be in the top 10 and it’s painful to not list some of his movies because they’re all so good.

1. Forrest Gump

2. Cast Away

3. Big

4. Saving Private Ryan

5. Splash

6. Philadelphia

7. Toy Story 1,2, & 3

8. Apollo 13

9. The Green Mile

10. The Burbs

Honorable Mentions:  You’ve Got Mail, A League of Their Own, Sleepless in Seattle, That Thing You Do, Catch Me If you Can, Polar Express, Radio Flyer, Money Pit, Turner & Hooch

Free Resources

I need your help. I’ve been compiling a list of free resources that are available to  individuals or organizations, especially churches (think Google apps, free graphics/photos, etc.)  They don’t necessarily have to be technology based.   Please assume I won’t know any that you know.  Leave a comment or send me an email of any that your aware of.  Thanks a ton.

29yrs and Laser Tag

Yes, I seem to have quit on my blog recently.  I’m sure I’ll be back rolling at some point, maybe this post will get me going.  Who knows.  Anyway, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to say thanks to everyone for wishing me a happy birthday.  Thanks to facebook it seems like everyone can remember everyone else’s birthday now.   Still though, even after being prompted by your facebook you wouldn’t say anything if you really didn’t want to wish me a happy birthday,  so thank you.  I got a few toys for my birthday this year.  My mom and aunt tend to by me toys still for some reason.  I’m not sure if I should be insulted because they think I’m childish, or if I should be glad that they think I’m a fun person.  Probably a little of both.  This year I got a set of Laser Tag guns and a table top air hockey game.  Shamefully I must say that I asked for the laser tag and I’m glad I did.  I’m on a mission to get some other guys to buy themselves a set so we can have a huge laser tag battle in the woods somewhere.  Yes, this is incredibly shallow but it’s something I really want to happen.  Thank you all again for the birthday wishes and if your interested in joining my laser war here’s a link to the kind of guns you’ll need.
