The “Culture Me!” Project 2013

So, I’ve seen a lot of people do projects of watching 100 movies a year, 50 movies a year, etc. I want to get in on this, but with my own twist. I’m going to do it for three forms of entertainment, not one.

DISCLAIMER: I left out books, because I have 20 books to read for school, classics. I left out plays and musicals, because they’re not big in Houston, so not many big theaters.

So, here’s my list!
