Hmm, I don’t know. Not a lot songs grow on me. I either love it or hate it. Maybe … when I was young, I had extreme prejudice toward Johnny Cash’s “A Boy Named Sue” simply because the title was weird. Then, I actually heard it and it was HILARIOUS and it’s still one of my favorite songs. A co-vidder and I made a SPN AU vid out of it so that’s saying something —- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4OfSWgfTSA
2. Reversely, what song did you start off loving then grow to dislike?
Any radio song! I wish radio stations had a wider selection!
3. Top 5 TV shows?
Ohh, good question. I’m only gonna use current airing shows for this. So I guess, in no ranking,
The Originals, Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural, Hannibal, Whose Line Is It Anyway
4. What, if anything, do you collect? (Action figures, comic books, stamps, ticket stubs, etc. ;) )
I try to collect ticket stubs, but sometimes I forget to steal it back from whoever paid. I used to like collecting the new state quarters. I just MIGHT have all 50 states!
5. Favorite time of day? (As in sunrise, sunset, lunchtime, etc., not “4:36PM!” unless you just, you know, really love 4:36PM, lol! ;) )
Bedtime. :) Relaxing.
6. Which book(s) have you re-read the most?
I don’t reread books because I don’t have the time or patience. I always wanted to reread American Gods by Neil Gaiman though.
7. What’s your guilty pleasure movie?
Hmm, probably The Princess Bride. It’s a classic, but I think I love it a bit too much. I will watch it every time it’s on!
8. What’s the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?
Guardians of the Galaxy, but enough people are recommending that. How about Snowpiercer with Chris Evans. Just don’t expect Captain America; the movie and characters be dark, son!
9. Which sequel (book, movie, whatever) do you feel was superior to the first? If none are superior, which do you think came the closest?
Spiderman 2 (with Tobey Maguire) is the first that comes to mind. Although 3 sucked sooo badly!
10. What’s the first movie you can remember falling in love with?
B-side Italian movies. They were not age appropriate, but really great! Still love a particular one!
My own questions for the next batch of people to answer:
1. What is your line of work?/What are you studying/doing?
2. What is a TV show that will never leave your heart, no matter how many years it’s been off-air?
3. Who is a character that you resonate with?
4. What is your preferred mode of transportation? (Walking, train, car, etc.)
5. What is your favorite foreign film?
6. Who is your favorite author and why?
7. As a kid or teenager, what was your favorite subject in school? (recess/gym/lunch don’t count)
8. You’re stuck on a deserted island. Name 3 celebrities you’d want for company and why.
9. If you could revive one ‘gone too soon’ TV show, what would it be and why?
10. What has been the best concert experience of your life? If you’ve never been to a concert, who would you most like to see live?
Anyone else that sees this and is intrigued, you have my blessing.
i love buffy the vampire slayer SO MUCH i like how STUPID it is and how CHEESY and how the makeup is dreadful and the special effects are horrible and how dumb so much of the dialogue is and how sappy the score is
and i love how the characters are scared and make the wrong decisions and don’t know what to do and sometimes forget what they’re fighting for and question why it matters and keep fighting anyway i love how lost they are sometimes and how broken they are and how they hurt each other and forgive each other but don’t forget and live nobly and sometimes terribly
i love how powerful buffy is, how incredibly strong she is and how she has to face this terrible danger that she doesn’t understand and she has to face it over and over again, not just one lord voldemort but a thousand little struggles, a thousand breaking points- not a single war but a life, a whole world, and if it’s a war it’s a war with a thousand sides. i love how buffy is strong because she’s a good leader, because she has shiny hair, because she loves her world and her friends, because she cares so badly that she can’t let go, and not just because of her ~powers
i love how spike and angel fight against their natures, how they want to help but they were made to hurt, how that thing that makes them so dangerous and so flawed and ~evil is also what gives them the power and the experience that is so incredibly valuable to The Fight Against Evil, and how simultaneously the thing that makes willow so powerful and important in that is also her weakness and her struggle
i love that buffy is a teenage girl, small and fragile-looking and working at a fast food restaurant, balancing school and social life and romance and self-image and family, trying to support herself and those she loves, trying to make the right choices, trying to have a good time at prom. i love that buffy is a hero who really lives in her world instead of just saving it, and how her high school/college/everything else life isn’t just a background to her slayer life but a real integrated part of it. she has a geometry test tomorrow and the apocalypse is next week and both of those are important to her because you can’t always live in final battles, and her day to day struggles are not minimized but rather heightened by her more supernatural struggles
but most of all i love that buffy is a hero whose true heroism lies in her connections with others, and how her femininity is her strength, and how she fights with more than punches. i love that her great hero moment is not in saving the world singlehandedly, but in helping others to find the strength to save it themselves, to fight for what they love, to fight with the power she knows they have, not just to defeat the vampires and the demons but the things in their own lives. she is a hero who knows that the hardest thing in this world is not to face the end of it but to live it everyday and are you ready to be strong are you ready to live in this terrible wonderful world with me
