All of the things listed here have on thing in common, a great
story. As a person that has created stories myself, I love the feel
of a great story. And sometimes the worst storytellers have the
best stories. From the formulaic and ordinary, to the curious and
bizarre, to Spine tingling, and gripping horror. I love them
I think I understand a little bit of what it takes to tell a great
story, or at least the stamina with an idea to follow it all the
way to the end. Its one thing to think up an idea for a story
another to finish it.
Of course there are those that do make great movies without a good
story, but have enough flash ans sparkle that we can completely
disconnect from that fact, and just be entertained, most Action
flicks are like this. Not all, some have depth and those are fun
too. I do love a good movie, and a great story,
Then there are the few that are both, and they belong to no
particular genre, or medium. They can come from the written page,
the silver screen, the television screen, or from the person
standing beside you. Stories are everywhere.
Books that are on my bookshelf right now: John the Revelator, The
golden compass, and her sequenles have not read them yet, but will,
aloud to the family. World war Z (Max Brooks), House of falling
leaves (Mark Z. Danielewski), The Twilight Saga (Stephanie Meyer) ,
Patrick's Corner (Sean Patrick), Warbots (G. Harry Stein), Odd
Thomas (Dean Koontz) Fox in Socks (Dr. Seuss).And a couple of dozen
My favorite movies are usually horror or syfi. The Video Dead, Star
Wars and Trek, in all their incarnations, Eternal sunshine for a
spotless mind, Mirror Mask, and Millennium Actress are a few of my
all time favorites, but I love all kinds of movies (Foreign and
Tv shows? the Dresden files, The walking dead, Dexter, Battle Star
Galactica,Doctor Who, Torchwood, Bones, Castle, Buffy, firefly,
House, and Criminal minds.
Music? It is the lifes blood of the soul. It makes you sway, it
moves you to tears, to laughter, uproarious joy, and quiet
solitude. I do love it, the listening, the dancing, and
occasionally the creating of it, singing not writing, I leave that
to the pros.
I like just about everything, From noise music (Merzbow) to top 40,
country, big band, blues, some metal, just about everything .I love
Jonathan Coulton, SJ Tucker, and The troubadours of divine Bliss.
