I was raised on Omni magazine.
I'm pretty sure it's Ursula K. Le Guin. She doesn't necessarily write page-turners; in fact, I found it difficult to get all the way through Always Coming Home. However, I like that she's not afraid of adopting different story-telling styles (never formulaic, occasionally experimental), and she intelligently, creatively, and interestingly conveys other worlds (and worldviews). I seem to be partial to "first contact" and "post-apocalyptic" themes, in general.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind wins, but Logan's Run, Planet of the Apes, Terminator, Fantastic Planet, Donnie Darko, Na Komete, and Wings of Desire were top contenders.
Space 1999 and Fantasy Island were early favorites (to cover both ends of this group's spectrum...). I was awestruck by The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy; Star Trek:The Next Generation stole my heart. Battlestar Galactica, old and new (except the "1980" series) probably win out overall, tho.
Not usually. Some day, I'd like to visit a furry convention; how could that not be fun?
Many gold stars! ;o)
Good to see you yesterday, too!
Dear Cheryl, Good to see you yesterday, its always fun to volunteer with you. The Boston Volunteers is having a big party on December 1st at Jose McIntyre's. There will be hundreds of Boston Volunteers who have similar interests like you or who might have volunteered with you in the past. Also, a special complementary cupcake for you. Learn more:
Howdy ... well, I think we met the other night, tho' you had a pretty different look from in your profile pic, maybe? Anyhow, didn't get to talk much. I like your eclectic list of likes and so on above. My list is also all over the place ... and I love lots about LeGuin, though I've only read a few of her books (a TV adaptation of "Lathe of Heaven" made quite an impression on me as a kid, though). Anyhow, nice to meet you!
