Re: Romeo and Juliet

For the longest time I considered Romeo and Juliet a comedy, (or rather a tragic comedy) because all of the characters were so absurd, Romeo falling in and out of love so easily (so was it really love?) and the inability of anyone to have their plans not backfire?? And then I learned about the real ...

Re: Flaming intellectual tentacled locus, ...much lurks within!

Overall, your site caused interest, despite the fact that I had to open the short stories in wordpad to be able to read them, though the overall quality seemed to only be an interlude to better work. The stories i read had some gems of great ideas, but were dissapointing due to a lack of skill. But ...

Re: My website with pretty pictures

Your photographs are really awesome, I mean really awesome. But I would suggest putting the gallery pictures in a separate div of a certain (the bigggest height&width) size, so the previous,next links don't move up and down. . . or reload. It would make it easier to naviagate, I think, but the s...

Re: My digital art gallery...yay, nay, or meh?

They are good first attempts at something approaching art. Take some classes, read some books and draw every day for the rest of your life. Also, if you are going to show people pics,just show them 3-5 of your best and a link to the rest of them somewhere.So, Go to it!

Re: Unpopular movie opinions

I liked Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy (the newer one) much more than the older version that was bascially the literal representation of the book. It was more true to the spirit of the book rather than the plot of the book itself. And I am usually a stern adherent of no movie-book remakes, exceptin...

Re: Best and Worst Discworld

Hogfather, Susan's the best and who doesn't love Christmas parodies wrapped around explanations of humanity, Small Gods, same thing, only the outer coating is a satire of Christianity and Night Watch, which i think has the best plot out of all of them, much more approaching a novel than the rest of ...

Re: Books you had to read for school that you could not stand

A Town Called Alice, combine random/purposeless war story with transparent/purposeless love story with some odd overtones of the narrator, and you get bland, super cop-out of a book, YAY! but i liked all other books we read, Walden is my most favorite book now because of 11th grade English, but I lo...

techno, mainly 8-bit/game soundtracks, mixed with deerhoof and other rock similar to that tone. I need to be energized but not distracted or sleepy, though i do have a tendency to pencil conduct when i'm thinking.

Fred Astaire singing a disco song. . . really. . . . attempting to, at least.
