The Crow Graphic Novel Review

Don’t like?  Read the book first.

So earlier this year I got the pleasure of finally reading the graphic novel The Crow.

A More Serious Writer’s Block

Writer’s Block asked:

Sex education in schools is always a topic of discussion.  What are your thoughts on the matter — comprehensive sex ed, abstinence only or somewhere in between?

This should shock no one, because anyone who reads this blog should be able to tell I’m a staunch liberal.


The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader Review + Writer’s Block

Don’t like?  Watch the movie first.

I don’t usually like to review movies in a series like this, especially ones that are based on a book.  My prefered way to do it is to read the books, in order, then watch the movies that correspond with each book right after and do a comparison.  Now, I’ve read the whole Narnia series.  I’ve read them several times over and I own a whole box set.  Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the fifth book and one of my absolute faves of the series.  So I was excited when 1) they decided to do the whole Narnia series as movies, rather than just the most popular one and 2) that they actually made and released this movie.  I didn’t get to see it in theaters but when it showed up on my On Demand, I definitely took the first chance I got to see it.

Mermaids Review

Don’t like?  Watch the movie first.

So, even when movie plots aren’t that good, I may watch a movie for the actors in it.  See, I’ve got one of those fancy DVR things with the digital cable, and my family rightly subscribes to several movie channels (we’ve been loyal to HBO for years.)  So when you look up a movie, it gives you a really short and crappy description along with the actors that are in it.

Mermaids has Cher, Bob Hoskins (from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Super Mario Bros.) Winona Ryder and is also Christina Ricci’s first film ever.  I was like “damn, all of them appeal to me (I’ll watch almost anything Winona is in) so yeah why the hell not?”

A Quick WB Catch-Up

So I totally know I need to catch up on my WB questions (I have like 175 waiting for me :-/) so I decided that I was gonna do like 5 of them right in a row and maybe have a little something to post. I think I’ll probably do another review today too. 🙂 It’s spring break for my college so I have three full days of no work and no school to get some of this done.

A Couple of Quick WBs

So I’ve done a couple of quick WB questions in the past few months and thought I’d at least post them up here for something to do.

The first one is one I did today:

How are you celebrating Leap Day?

I happen to be going out with my family for lunch?  You see, today is not only the last day of Subway’s FebruANY event (where any regular footlong sub is just $5) but they’re giving out a free cookie because it’s leap day.  So we’re going to Subway.  Even better is that I work at a Subway and the one down the street from me is owned by the same man that owns mine.  So I get to go and see a bunch of my friends.  🙂

Now, back in December I answered a B.Y.O.B. WB question (they were doing this series of questions called Bring Your Own Beliefs.)  Each of these questions had the opportunity to win something too.  I only answered one, because it was the only one I was interested in.

What is your must-see holiday movie?

Now, there are a lot of movies I like watching during the holiday.  I love the Blackadder Christmas SpecialA Charlie Brown Christmas, Garfield Christmas Special and the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas.  I also like less obvious Christmas movies like Batman Returns, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Edward Scissorhands.  But there is one movie that I absolutely love to watch on Christmas that no one ever really thinks of:

Die Hard.

Die Hard is one of the best Christmas movies ever, in my opinion.  I love watching Bruce Willas kick Alan Rickman’s butt 🙂

And remember how I said you could randomly win a prize?  Well, I got picked to win the $50 Amazon gift card from that question!  I’m still not sure what to spend it on.  I know I’m getting one book, the new Jay Asher one, but I don’t know what else I want.

Writer’s Block: Bless You! + Update

Cross-posted to LiveJournal

So I’m doing this on my boyfriend’s computer now because of the like…six computers in this house, only his still works.  It’s annoying, but my dad should be buying a new laptop for himself soon and I’m very soon to be getting back in school which means a new laptop for me as well.  But it does mean I’m a little bit behind in my writing as the only word processor I have is Google Docs and I can only use this computer when my boyfriend is either working or sleeping.

But I did get to do a Writer’s Block question today.  The question was:

What are you allergic to?

And that tends to be a long answer for me because sadly, I happen to be allergic to just about everything except food and medicine.  I have no known food allergies, nor am I allergic to any common medicines.  Most of my allergies are either sinus-affecting or skin-affecting.
