What Are Your Favorites?

It’s been an unpleasant week. I’m trying to focus on happier things. So here’s a few of my favorite things, that no one asked for.

Salem's LotFavorite Book: ‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King. I adore this book. I reread it at least once a year. It wasn’t my first exposure to King (I think it was Cujo, but it’s been over thirty years, so I no longer remember) but it was his first work that grabbed me by the throat and made me hunker down close to listen to him. The way the town itself is a major character, the description of the Marsten House, the musings that perhaps everything horrible that happens to the town and its residents as a result of Barlow’s arrival was both warranted and preordained… mmm. Love it so much.

Favorite Movie: Empire Records. This movie empire recordsis life. Aside from having Renee Zellweger looking adorable, the performances from everyone are great, it’s funny as hell, everyone is relatable in some way (even the characters you don’t like, like Corey.) It doesn’t hurt that it has a goddamn amazing soundtrack, either.


alice cooperFavorite Album: Classicks by Alice Cooper. You get “Poison,” “School’s Out,” “Stolen Prayer” and more. What’s not to like? Cooper is god.we're not worthyt



metal gearFavorite Video Game: Metal Gear Solid 3. Great and suitably weird story, amazing graphics for it’s time that still look damn good (especially on the Vita or PS3 versions), voice acting that burns into your brain, damn-near perfect gameplay. I can play this game over and over again and love it more every time.

What are some of your favorites? Is there something I should know about some of mine? Let me know down below!

    Favourite Book, Wuthering Heights. Favourite Movie, Almost Famous. Favourite Computer Game, Mc Gee’s Alice. 🙂 I remember the movie Salem’s Lot. That was a good one. David Soul was in it if I remember, Haven’t seen Empire Records. Will check it out. 🙂

      The McGee Alice games are great. I love them, and have bought and replayed them more times than is probably healthy.

      The original ‘Salem’s Lot miniseries was pretty decent (and Soul did well as Ben, I felt), but I was more partial to the remake with Rob Lowe. Barlow was a little closer to being an actual vampire instead of Straker’s really ugly attack dog in that version.

      Thanks for stopping by!
