What's the point of rattling off a bunch of bullshit nobody has heard of to show how hip you are here? I tend towards the sci fi/fantasy nerd realm, but dammit I watch Love Actually at Christmas too. Musically if its from the 80s or 90s I like it. I pick and choose which of todays bullshit artists I listen to.
Edit: I'm in the staging area for 'Infinite Jest ' after I finish up my current books...can't wait!
My young niece was recently talented (and blessed) enough to be cast in the play "The Lion King." I was absolutely astounded by how the costumes translated to the big stage and the tremendous emotion of the play. I'm very much appreciative now of live musical theater than I ever was and certainly will take advantage of what Chicago has to offer. I love books that interest me, period. If I think it will hold my attention i will read it. Between actual books, my tablet, and my Nook I'm always surrounded by words and wouldn't have it any other way.
