So, this time around, it’s genre favourites. Movie, Music, Books and a Guilty Pleasure from any of those categories.
Ready? Here we go …
I’m on a bit of superhero film kick at the moment, but I’ll go for a kidult film anytime. I’m certain that sort of mindset is mandatory for parenthood anyhow. ^_^
Uh, as it says in my profile, I’m up for any song that sounds good. I’m very eclectic and free with my choices. As such, I seldom indentify by type which means Eminem, Shania Twain, Linkin Park, Katy Perry, The Pet Shop Boys, Dixie Chicks, Pink and Madonna (I could go on) all get to share a cosy little space on my harddrive. Never mind the songs I love that I don’t own (Fun, Coldplay … I could go on here too).
So let’s say I’m drawn to stuff with a bit of a beat and some lyrics I can understand, though the latter is not so much a necessity.
Why, fantasy, of course. Just look at the author list that graces my bookshelf: David Eddings, Anne McCaffrey, Andre Norton, Robert Jordan, Terry Pratchett, Jennifer Roberson, Gayle Greeno, Robin Hobb, Melanie Rawn, Trudi Canavan … it’d be better if you checked out my bookshelf for a full list.
But fantasy has always been a draw for me. The magic (or lack of), the worlds, the struggles against the villains. Oh … the villains!
The guilty pleasure
Let me be specific. I’m not talking kidlut here (think Shrek). We’ve two massive shelves of children’s DVDs. I enjoy them. Especially the PGs. But I have sat down with my daughter and watched the first two Tinkerbell movies (and couple of Barbie ones) before I realised what had happened. You know what? They were kind of good. In an ‘omg, I cannot believe I enjoyed the cheese’ way.
