Top Five Ficitional Places We Would Like To Live

Top Five is a show where the hosts categorize, rank, compare, and stratify everything… from cars to gadgets to people and movies. From stuff that is hot, and things that are not nearly as interesting – it’s Top Five.

This week, we are thinking of moving – but no place that really exists, as we take a look at our top five fictional places we would like to live in.

  1. Alright, here’s my list. I have to say, it’s kind of awesome.
    5. The Marvel Universe, Indiana. -That’ right. I don’t want to live in New York or anything flashy like that. But in the Marvel U, I know I’ve at least got one initiative team to protect my state in case stuff goes down. But why live there? After all the time Tony Stark and Reed Richards have spent there inventing new toys, and all the alien tech that’s been floating around, they must have some pretty SWEET gadgets, while still being a fun and safe place to live.

    4. There once was a decent movie called Osmosis Jones, where Chris Rock played a white blood cell living in Bill Murray’s disgusting body. His body was a whole city, with different themed neighborhoods (the lower intestine was th eslums, the stomach was the arrivals terminal at the airport, his brain was city hall, etc.) I would like to live there, but in my own body, to see what sort of crazy analagies my body would have to a major metropolitan city. I would love to see what sort of city my body would be.

    3. Cour de Cour, from Pushing Daisies. Anyone who has ever seen this show knows that this is a sweeet place to live. It’s colorful, fascinating, everyone is quirky and interesting and talks like the Gilmore girls, there’s a giant pie-shaped-pie-shop, and to top it all off, there’s a little bit of MAGIC. Wholesome and fun, but not dripping with saccharine.

    2. New York City. But not regular NYC, oh no. I’m talking the NYC from every big budget musical. I want to step off the bus and have everyone burst into simultaneous song and dance, like that episode of Buffy. It would be the bright, happy, and hopeful New York, not dirty or smelly. And it’s hard to get mugged when the gangsters are turning pirouettes. Movie musical New York would be fantastic.

    And finally, #1-Disneyworld. Lame, right? But I don’t want to live in the real Disneyworld with miles of underground tram tunnels and where Mickey Mouse takes off his head for a smoke break. I want to live in the illusion that Disneyworld pretends to be, where there is a real space mountain, next to real aliens, next to real pirates, and Goofy actually lives down the street from Star Command. Think about it… what would it be like to live in a real-life Disney World?

    And that’s my… Top Five.

  2. Here is my top five. This is all strictly opinion, so feel free to disagree.

    5. That Weird ghost bathhouse thing from Spirited Away. It would be freaky and there would be a thousand things that could kill you in a second, but at the same time it would be awesome and it seemed to me like we barely scratched the surface of that world and there are a thousand weirder more wonderful things.

    4. The West Egg from the Great Gatsby because every weeknight I could go to one of Gatsby’s parties.

    3. The T.A.R.D.I.S. Technically this is a vehicle. but it is so big that I would call it a place. Who would not want to live in a ship that could take you to any point in the known universe and have enough room for a karaoke bar, a library, a swimming ball, and seven squash courts.

    2. Gondor after the events of Lord of the Rings. It is a realm of peace and comfort under the reign of Aragorn, it has beautiful architecture and it is peaceful.

    1. The Citadel from Mass Effect 3. A giant space station that also is home to the leaders of the galaxies races. It is a beautiful and utilitarian place that I would love to live in, has relatively low crime, and there would be hundreds of different alien refugees fleeing from the impossibly powerful machines. It would be a wonderful mix of cultures. I would just have to leave before said machines got there.

  3. Aspiring Spambot on

    I second Stephen on the Shire, although given the comment about pulling out a wand and zapping someone if he has to, I feel like he wouldn’t want to be himself in the Shire so much as he’d want to be Orem in the Shire, possibly to take it over.

  4. I just want to say REAL NJ (where i’m from) is awful, and as much as I love Red Bank, it’s not worth it. But Fake Jersey in the View Askewniverse (sp?) would make my life, personally, so much more tolerable. Also, I agree with Rodrigo but will not include Eberron OR Scott Pilgrim’s Canada only because I don’t want to be a copycat >.>

    5. D&D and/or Final Fantasy – I just wanna save the world…just once
    4. Star Wars Universe – Specifically Corellia and Nal Hutta. I appreciate Stephen’s Coruscant, but i’d rather see Hutta myself. Don’t ask…
    3. The World of The Avatar (Nickelodeon, not the blue people) – But ONLY if I could be the avatar, because come on: who doesn’t want to control all the elements
    2. The Marvel Universe – I want to be a mutant, ever since I was 6 and picked up my first X-men comic. Other supers are awesome, and I love Spidey, but I wanna shoot lasers or fly or make s*%(#t with my mind to beat up Billy Jacobs back in 3rd grade for making fun of my glasses. BAMF! and/or Snikt!
    1. Super Mario’s World! – That’s right, all of them, because someway and somehow, they all exist in the same universe. I’d love to see the Mushroom Kingdom in ALL it’s glory, bordering Desert Land AND Giant Land, Rose Town, Bean Bean Lands etc…AND Giant land! Plus, all those trippy thoughts I have from the LSD’s would make some semblance of sense.

    • My runners up include: Eberron and Scott Pilgrim, also musical land but I feel i’d have to be in too good of shape for all that choreography and all that…and i’m lazy >.>
