Everytime I try to write something here, it ends up being about 18
pages long, because sometimes I really want to share the things I
like with other people, which I think is a perfectly normal human
urge right? I don't get to do it often, but I'm pretty sure it's
Anyway, I'll just put the most recent or most notable few entries
Books: Started re-reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen, because
it might be the most amazing fantasy series ever. I've read Song of
Ice and Fire, just about everything JRRT ever wrote, and a good
deal more beside, and I still can't think of anything to compare it
to. Maybe Dune? Also I'm always happy to flip through a Terry
Pratchett book for the 19th time, or re-(re-re-re-re)read some H.P.
Lovecraft or Robert E. Howard. Oh, and I need to re-read the Poetic
Edda for the umpteenth time just as soon as I find my copy, or
maybe buy a new one.
Movies: Old movies, especially if they have Cary Grant or Humphrey
Bogart. Samurai movies, Yakuza movies, Kung Fu movies, Korean
horror, and a decent variety of other films with subtitles. Say
Studio Ghibli movies for example. Good Sci-Fi movies occasionally
seem to be hard to come by, but at least terrible ones are never in
short supply. Most things with Clint Eastwood, and Mel Brooks
movies never get old.
Shows: I hate to say I don't watch alot of TV, since it sounds
slightly douchey depending on how you get it across, but I do try
to keep up on Archer, The Daily Show (and of course Colbert
Report), and Top Gear. I usually watch them for the lols, or just
leave it on History Channel or whatever and marinate in a fine stew
of WW2 and science (Not H2 though, the History channel for things
that NEVER HAPPENED). I have a hard drive with more anime on it
then might be a good idea to admit, and a good amount of that is
Oh yes, recently I started watching Adventure Time, and I really
should've done that sooner.
Music: I got on Last FM, so now this section is only a short phrase
and a link long
Saving you, the reader, time... kinda. And exposing my possibly
embarrassing musical binges, as well as putting the lie to the
statement I began this with, heh. On an unrelated note, since I've
been on here I've realized that if there was a "most popular bands
on OKC" list the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would definitely make the top 10,
which is nice and all, but I always want to ask where The Fever To
Tell love is. I mean, it IS the album that introduced me to them, I
can't be the only one who thinks it kicks major ass.
