Watching Queen of the Damned for the first time on USA. Huh. So I guess it's acceptible to make a movie after a book and only have the names of the main characters be the same. Granted, I only read the book once, back in '94 or so, but my memory hasn't been changed THAT much. Or, lost memory. Or something.

I planned on sleeping from 4 pm until 2 am, but, alas, I woke up at 10 pm with an AWFUL pain in my shoulder. Thankfully, I cleaned my desk off yesterday, so I actually found some pain pills - my shoulder still hurts, but I seem to not care quite as much.

I still dread moving freight tonight. Bleh.

This movie makes me want to read the book again, though I always found it very difficult to get into Rice books. I read them because I was going through my goth phase and felt it was a prerequisite - I even claimed to like them. I dressed in a long sleeved, full length black velvet gown with a thick choker necklace and my shiny blue-black dyed chin length hair to see Interview With a Vampire open. But I remember I really liked QotD, as it gave a fascinating history as to how vampires came about.

I thought I was going to add something else, but my brain just fizzled (smoke came outta my ears, and avrythang!)

One of the roommates has VERY blue hair now, as evidenced only by the bottles of blue dye and bleach on the bathroom sink. No idea which (though I have my suspicions!)

I actually liked her books. Vampire Lestat was my favorite. Queen of the Damned was interesting for the backstory, but I wasn't as thrilled. Then I got to Tales of a Body Thief... I got right up to the point where the characters are sitting across the table from each other prepared to make a deal to trade bodies, and I put down the book and never picked it up. Just didn't hold my attention at all.

I did, years later, read Memnoch the devil and remembered it being interesting for the history of god and devil stuff, but I can't really remember much at all.

My favorite parts of Lestat, if I remember right, was all the prose about the Wicked Garden. I remember thinking it was great at the time. No idea how I would feel now.

I don't remember much about The Vampire Lestat, except that I had to force myself through the read. I wonder how it would be now... some, uh... thirteen/fourteen years later. I checked out a couple of her other books, like Pandora, but it felt almost like homework.
