Alex Cavanaugh's Blogfests that I've signed up for. The other being the First Loves Blogfest.
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.
