Re: Bartimaeus Trilogy

I remember liking them, although the plot is pretty fuzzy now so I'll have to reread them all. I love the footnotes and Bartimaeus's cheekiness, though.
By the way, how do you pronounce Bartimaeus?

Re: "Desert Island" Discussion

Anyone else think that this comic kinda goes deeper (haha, bad pun) than normal if you look at it in a certain way? I don't really think of it as funny either, but melikes.

Re: (500) Days of Summer

I loved it the first time I saw it, then calmed down after seeing it a second time. I still really liked it, though... great soundtrack too :)

Re: Coraline

I've never read the book, but I thought the movie was awesome. Way to creepy to be marketed as a kids' movie though, or at least I think it was. It's pretty cool how they animated it.

Re: Movies you turned off before you were half-way through.

Knowing, but only because the creepy little girl in the closet scared me.
Rachel Getting Married, because I dislike confrontation and there was so much awkward tension and... I don't know, watching it made me uncomfortable.
I usually finish movies, though, even if I pay zero attention to them.

Re: Favorite Characters?

I love eccentric characters in books and movies, they're usually the best :D

Two that come to mind are Angela from the Inheritance Trilogy and Sherlock Holmes, just 'cause he's cool. I'll come up with more later.
Ooh, also Fred and George from Harry Potter. I love their bantering.

Re: Script Frenzy/NaNoWriMo

I did NaNoWriMo last year and I loved it. I didn't finish my novel and still haven't, but I hit 50k in time. I also met a bunch of fantastically odd people on a Nano chat room and at the events I attended. Soooo going to do it again :D

I don't think script writing is my thing, though.

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

The Chrysalids . I tried to like it, but found it weird in an unpleasant way and it bored me. It started to get exciting towards the second half, but in my opinion the ending sucked. I was pretty disappointed, but I find that it's a lot easier to hate a book you have to read for school than one you...

Re: books you read for school and actually enjoyed

My Side of the Mountain , Jean Craighead George - grade 4 Night , Elie Wiesel - grade 8 I'm not old enough to have been assigned any classic literature, or anything much at all yet. But I liked both of those books... EDIT: Oh, also A Midsummer Night's Dream although the translations from Middle Eng...

Re: favorite lines/quotes from books

Inkdeath, by Cornelia Funke wrote:

It's not my favourite line or anything, but it came to mind because I decided to scribble it on a post-it when I first read it.

(not bothering to read anything above my own post because there are 333 pages of this...)

Someone should figure out a way to harness mime-power and convert it to electricity. It would probably be energy efficient.

Re: Really good ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING food

I love mixing hot chocolate mix with milk. What you get is a chocolate milk and since all of the powder isn't able to mix with the milk, some of it just gets wet and floats to the top. So when you are done with the milk part, you can scoop the wet powder substance up with the spoon you mixed it wit...

I have to say, the lyrics are one of the main things I concentrate on. After that, I don't know what I can quantify.

Re: Covers That Are Better Than The Originals

Johnny Cash's version of Hurt is a million times better than the NIN original. It's amazing.
I also prefer the Gary Jules version of Mad World, but that might be because I heard it before the original.
