Re: Community

I found the first few episodes alright, but nothing special. However, from there onwards I did really get into it, especially near the end of the season (I agree about Modern Warfare, that was one hell of an episode). I think the Mad Men reference in one episode just cemented my liking of it. The on...

Re: Anyone else like horror books?

I agree with some of the others here: Lovecraft's stories are brilliant but I find that sometimes it takes a while to get into his style of writing and being able to read it easily. Stephen King is good to read when you want just a good story, but sometimes his books have quite pathetic endings that...

Re: The Lonely Reader

My problem is that due to the fact that I don't know barely anybody who reads, when I do discover someone who likes I reading I tend to overwhelm them with book conversation. Either that, or I force my non-reading friends to read books, which they end up hating. Not many sixteen year old girls I kno...

Re: Awesome Student Quotes

In my 9th grade English class: "Is Shakespeare's wife still alive?" In my Intro to Computer Programming class in ninth grade, the teacher was talking about things being in different states, e.g. a switch could be in an on or an off state, and a person could be in a sitting state, or a sta...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

I'm going to introduce myself as then I will feel like I've made a step towards something. However, it might give me less of a "I'm really new" excuse when I say something stupid. I'm Siobhan, or Shinobi, and I'm pretty boring really. Every other thing I say tends to be total rubbish, so I...

Re: Recommend one artist

I have one band that I must recommend: The Cure.
They are brilliant and not at all just for "goths" or something. And in terms of songs, I recommend A Forest or Play For Today.

Re: Most/Least Favorite Movies of all time!

The list of my favourite films probably goes on forever, but I do agree that Dr Strangelove is great, I watched it expecting to have to pretend to enjoy it, but found myself pleasantly surprised and actually amused. I do love some of Kubrick's work. And one particular film I hate is Hostel, as it ju...

Re: favorite lines/quotes from books

Instead of writing in books, I memorise their position on the page and whereabouts in the book. I find it works pretty well, but maybe that has something to do with the fact that a lot of my favourite quotes from books come either from the very beginning or the very end. And here's a quote, one that...

Re: xkcd sightings in your hometown

Sadly I've never found anyone else who knows of xkcd, but then my little old English town doesn't seem to be full of obvious geeks. However, I have just made my James Bond obsessed boyfriend a Centrifugal Force end of exams card, so I am trying to spread the word, which is especially fitting as one ...

Re: "Papyrus" Discussion

I used to have a great obsession with Helvetica, but have only today discovered that it has other followers. I'm not very knowledgeable about fonts, you see, and was slightly surprised when I discovered this. I also hate the fact that menu titles are often written in Papyrus, or at least they are in...
