Day 14:

It's been two weeks since I've started here at Whiskey Media, and boy time flown.

Except when it hasn't.

Such was the case over the past two days when I had my most grueling of tasks. Intern-wrangler Ethanassigned me the task of getting some quotes for every movie in 2011, past and present. At first I thought "oh this won't be so bad I'll go find some quotes on IMDB or something." I was wrong.

This task was easy enough with big movies like Hangover II, or Thor, but some of these movies had quotes nowhere to be found. So I figured I would go watch the trailers and get some quotes from them.

Do you know how many movies have been released this year? No, go on, I'll let you guess... no really. What? Like, 50 or something? Yeah that's what I thought too. Turns out there have been 350 ****ING MOVIES in the five months of 2011 alone. And I have to watch trailers for all of them.

They have ranged from bad:

To terrible:

To pretty much the worst thing ever (WARNING NSFW... or anything)

Anyway, this is a terrible task but I still love my job here. Even if I'm only 50 deep into the 350 releases of the year.

I would have probably watched all of the movies, just for fun. Then again, maybe that would have taken really really long ha ha.

My favorite thing about this blog is probably what it's attached to.

350 movies this year and I have seen like 10. At this rate I will never see every movie made since I was born.
And good luck with quote finding.

Being an intern at Whiskey Media sounds like both the best and worst thing ever.

Awww no... you have my sympathy!! This is why I'm often glad I'm not a film critic, cuz I can pick & choose which films to avoid ;)

Even without the interns, I see this is as a little thing the main guys would have to do for the sake of management.

I don't know, Father's Day looked pretty cool in that bad but good kind of way.

Perfect task for a bully like yourself! :D

Next I hope they have you make a list of your top 100 favorite releases so far. I would love to read that.

Are interns allowed to boss other interns about? I don't think so. Get back to work and stop hassling Ben!!!!

@GlenTennis: Clocktower. I am really excited for all the terrible things you and the interns will have to do in the next few weeks. I considered having all three of you walk my dog today. When everyone gets back from E3 it will most certainly get worst cause they will all be tired and cranky.
