Stuff I like....
I'm a big Neil
fan, own most of the Sandman
books, and several of his prose
works as well. I haven't read The Ocean at the End of the Lane yet.
I'm saving it for a special day.
I adore Warren
, he's radically prolific, and a mad bastard to
Randy Milholland makes an amazing webcomic called Something*Positive
you should check it out if you haven't already.
Actually, I read about 3-4 dozen webcomics on a fluctuating basis.
If you have a cool one, send me a link, preferably to one that's
generally considered to have the broadest appeal, or you think will
appeal to me in particular.
The last few books I read include:
I'm reading Deborah Harkness' A Discovery of Witches
and Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land
The Temeraire series by Naomi Novik
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
I TRIED to read Fledgling by Octavia Butler, but I couldn't get
If you printed off my 'have-read' list in size 2 font, on rice
paper, and trimmed off all the excess, leaving no margin, you could
choke a whale with it. If you printed off my 'to-read' list, you
could use it for the whale's burial shroud, assuming you were going
to have a funeral for it.
comic books/graphic novels of no particular persuasion. I am
addicted to reading superhero comics like I'm majoring in it. I
welcome non-superhero comics for that very reason.
Movies... I have several favorites, ones I can watch again and
again. I don't know anyone who can sit through them with me,
(with Willis), Oscar (with Stallone), Monty Python
and the Holy Grail
. I'm a Pixar
fan through and through, I'll watch
any of them with you, any time. I like Vampire movies
, and the campiest
one I can think of right off the top of my head is called Blood and
Donuts. Canadian, obviously a B-movie, it's ludicrous with how bad
it is, and yet I can't... look... away!
I am A Regular Frankie Fan, and I dress like Eddie every month at
NO, HAN DID NOT SHOOT 'FIRST.' You have to have a second shot to
have a first shot.
There are several movies and TV shows I've inherited a love of from
my parents; mostly BBC goodies and gonzo animation on my dad's side
- Ralph Bakshi's Wizards
, The Duchess of Duke
, etc. And mostly musicals on my mom's side - Fiddler on the
, Paint Your Wagon
a Clear Day You Can See Forever
, West Side Story
... things like
As far as shows go, I'm an 80's kid. So, rewatching TransFormers,
G.I. Joe, The Real Ghostbusters, and many others is how I genuinely
enjoy spending time. Which is NOT to say that I won't jeer through
the cheese, but I'll almost immediately follow it up with some
redonkulously convoluted 33rd degree nerdcore lore
hypothesis/apology for what I just shamelessly bashed.
My mom gave me Doctor Who
, though, I'll put that out
And they both taught me to love Star Trek
, which I took and ran with,
but then Rick Berman soured me on it extensively.
I listen to many different kinds of music. I like ancient music
instrumentals, a capella, and stuff that generally gets labelled
love Rock and
in many flavors. I didn't like Rap for a long time, but I
got over it. Still have some hang-ups about Opera, though.
I am of Sicilian descent, so that means I do like Italian food. But
I'm unapologetically nitpicky about food labeled as Italian which
is actually something... other. I'm pretty safe with most pizzas,
