Love, Creativity and Hilarity

Life is about choices, and I'm slowly learning to make my own.

My favorite diaries:

comments: Mira's cool. She likes Philip Pullman :), and asks cool philosophical questions and conducts interesting sociological studies. And she comments and fills out surveys too! I met her through Abhaya.
belle-tn profile - diary
comments: Awesome layout, superb writing, and quite a nice person to boot. That, and a dedicated Love, Creativity and Hilarity fan, as demonstrated when she signed up for my Notify List.

comments: Because haiku poems are cool, and because my haiku, "Panther," is the latest entry :-).

comments: Joined my "twentyfour" diaryring. A fairly new diary (although apaprently not a new diarist), but I'll be checking it out to see what's up as it grows.
tragiclovest profile - diary
comments: Apparently the person who convinced prowlingleo to find a "twentyfour" ring and join it, and then joined it himself. Sweeeet. Haven't seen much, but will look at more soon.
mojo1915 profile - diary

comments: Left me a very nice comment in my guestbook and added to her faves. Returning the favor is the least I can do ;-D.
markodepollo profile - diary

My favorite music:

Jazz, Jazz, Jazz!!!

Funky, edgy, quirky Jazz/Anything/Everything Fusion

World-Class Rock
comments: KFOG (104.5) style. Sting, U-2, Dave Matthews, Bob Marley (not rock, okay), Joe Satriani, Coldplay, etc.
Everything else
comments: Duke Ellington once said, "There are two kinds of music: good music and bad music." If it's good music, I'll listen to it, usual tastes aside. With more space, I would be more specific...

My favorite movies:

The Shawshank Redemption
comments: This is easily one of the greatest movies ever made. A masterpiece of subtle acting and rich storytelling.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
comments: Beautiful. A transcendent performance by all actors involved--and such a wonderful message.
Usual Suspects
comments: This movie has the coolest setup to the most mind-blowing twist in any movie, ever. Kevin Spacey deserved his Oscar and then some.
Road to Perdition
comments: Tom Hanks at his finest. The relationship between Michael Sullivan and Mike Jr. warms my heart.
The Last Samurai
comments: I saw this two nights in a row. There are so many beautiful scenes in this movie; the story is sad and poignant, and the music is majestic yet haunting. The fight scenes were thrilling and at the same time, heart-wrenching--as they should be.

My favorite authors:

Philip Pullman
comments: His Dark Materials Series (Golden Compass, Subtle Knife, Amber Spyglass, Lyra's Oxford)
Orson Scott Card
comments: Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, Children of the Mind, Ender's Shadow, Shadow of the Hegemon, Shadow Puppets, Shadow of the Giant, Enchanted...I met him at a book signing/Q&A session, he is sooooo cool!!!
Alice Sebold
comments: Lovely Bones. What an amazing, haunting novel...
Norton Juster
comments: The Phantom Tollbooth. Excellent.
The Masters of Science Fiction
comments: Ray Bradbury, Isaac Aasimov, Philip K. Dick, Ursula K. LeGuin, Robert A. Heinlen, William Gibson, etc....
