I'd like to discover more about: Roller Derby, Roller Skating, Renaissance, South Korean Movies, Classic Literature


Umm... I'm an uber-nerd... Yep, that describes everything pretty well. I have quite a collection of movies, (horror, foreign, exploitation and comedy), video games, (used to have a PS2, now just the XBOX 360 but I love Gears of War and Left For Dead, 1 & 2 of each game), Magic The Gathering cards, and tons and tons of books, (everyone … more

Reviews
Red-Headed Stepchild (Sabina Kane) [Mass Market
Let me be blunt about this: Not all movies are made to be cinematic masterpieces, not all paintings are meant to spearhead a new school of art, and not all books should be judged against literary classics. …
reviewed Helen of Troy. July 11, 2010
Helen of Troy
Margaret George is, quite simply, one of my favorite historical fiction writers, and I fell in love with her as I read through her three giant tomes of engrossing, painstakingly-researched work, (which, …

Pygmy
** Riddled with Spoilers, But Not Blatantly So***      Pygmy is one of my new favorites by Palahniuk because it has, in my opinion, refreshed his works by presenting an entirely new …

Johnny The Homicidal Maniac: Director's Cut
A great blend of horror, humor, and bucketloads of creativity. Jhonen Vasquez has a way with bouncing between morbid and manic, existential and shallow, and righteous and evil that keeps my head spinning …
posted a Quick Tip about Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar Series. July 10, 2010
Although I am quite fond of Mercedes Lackey for her ability to create unique worlds, to cause you to cheer for her champions, and to display great depths of human emotion, I fear that her stories are …
posted a Quick Tip about The Other Boleyn Girl (book). July 10, 2010
The Other Boleyn Girl
I am a huge fan of historical fiction, and definitely a sucker for the real-life soap opera that was the Tudor family, and although I am sure that The Other Boleyn Girl is not the most strictly historical …
posted a Quick Tip about Uglies Trilogy. July 10, 2010
Uglies Trilogy
A far deeper look at how society changes when beauty and the alteration of the body becomes not only commonplace, not only normal, but in fact expected and standardized, than I would have ever expected …

Ender's game cover
Not only is Ender's Game an adventurous science fiction novel and a fascinating political and moral allegory, it is also and amazing panorama of three genius children effecting a broad spectrum of change …
posted a Quick Tip about Haunted (Chuck Palahniuk book). July 10, 2010
Haunted
Amazing short stories seemingly tied together by a weak common thread... Enjoyable, but for bits and pieces more than the whole structure.

Guilty Pleasures
This is Laurell K. Hamilton before her work all became porn-tastic crap...
posted a Quick Tip about Dry (book). July 10, 2010
Dry Augusten Burroughs
I love Augusten Burroughs' writing style, in which I don't know why every word is relevant, but it is. I don't know how it all ties together, but it does. I don't see how it could possibly all be true, …
posted a Quick Tip about Choke (Chuck Palahniuk book). July 10, 2010
Chuck Palahniuk's Choke
Not my favorite Chuck Palahniuk book as I find the main character somewhat less endearing than the usual misguided protagonist of Chuck's works, but nonetheless another fantastic example of his penchant …
posted a Quick Tip about Brave New World (book). July 10, 2010
Brave New World
In my opinion, an excellent analysis of a potential future far more insidious than that of books such as 1984. People balk at control via suffering, and cruelty much faster than society's attempts at …
