Re: Random Commenter
i definitely don't mind that you swung by to give me some recommendations! in fact, i feel flattered that you bothered :) (as long as you don't mind my 6 month old response...)

aah, mr. bungle and primus, how i miss thee.

a coworker loaned me a r.a. salvatore series (the one with elbryan and pony) to read, i plowed through them....until i got a tv/vcr in my bedroom, and then my reading sort of came to a screaching halt. (before bed being the majority of the time i would actually read.)

i LOVED braveheart (one of the few movies that made me cry like a schoolgirl). ooh, and i FINALLY got to see glory all the way through (great flick!) and 28 days later... i shall have to check out the other ones you mentioned!

thanks again :D

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS?
you know? i'm probably one of thee very last people on earth that have not read any of the, nor seen any of the stuff (i.e. movies) surrounding the harry potter series. for a long while, it began to cause me to become overly stubborn to NOT see any of the movies or read any of the books, as i seemed to be the last person on the face of the planet that had not done one, nor the other.

i LOVED the royal tenanbaums, forrest gump, and office space, haven't seen the others though!

thanks so much for swinging by and giving me your recommendations :D

thanks so much! i had started writing all of these down in a notebook for easy portability and stuff, but my hand got tired and cramped after just yours, so methinks i shall copy and paste it and print it out instead!

Re: not big on movies but...
i've discovered recently that maroon 5 had basically been responsible for every recent song that i adored on the radio. i want to hug them now.

i should really reread my terry goodkind books. actually, since i left all of my books in phoenix, i really should reBUY all of my terry goodkind books.

ooh be good tanyas, i used to listen to them a lot, before i left phoenix. dunno why i ever stopped.

thanks for the recommendations and reminding me! hee hee. i've been craving a lot of older stuff like crosby stills and nash. funny how it took me growing up and getting older to really be able to appreciate the old music and not avoid it cuz it 'isn't cool'. to think of all the stuff i missed.

granted, it may be a good thing because of the fact that while die hard fans have heard everything they will ever come out with (i.e. the beatles), it's ALL new to me :D and i'm discovering it at an age where i can appreciate it so much more!

and i freaking LOVE saved!! i so wanted to find a screenshot of her freaking out at the base of the headless Jesus, but i couldn't find any to make an icon out of.
