Now on to the main reason for today's blog post - Alex J. Cavanaugh's Genre Favourites Blogfest. This is my first blogfest in eight months, and what could be a better way to have some fun than a blogfest hosted by the great Ninja Captain himself, Alex?
Genre Favorites Blogfest, September 17, 2012
One blogfest, four favorites!
List your favorite genre of:
And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories
I like science fiction, horror, disaster, and some comedy (think American Pie). But my favourite genre? In the end it came down to science fiction and disaster, and the winner was . . .queue movie music . . .science fiction!
"Look, I'm telling ya, there's somethin' movin' and it ain't us!"
Could I just list the ones I don't like? My taste really is eclectic. Nope? Okay. If I had to choose one for a desert island, it would be pop; specifically 80s pop. I was a child of the 80s you know! That's my defence and I'm sticking to it.
Playing air guitar with a friend on my 40th birthday earlier this year.
This constantly changes between science fiction and young adult dystopian, though I've always loved science fiction. So, science fiction has to be the winner. Do you see a pattern forming here?
Joe Hadleman's The Forever War is my all-time favourite science fiction read. If you haven't read it, do. It is a masterpiece in futuristic tales and world-building.
It has to be cheesy horror films. Think Sharktopus or Sand Sharks. Barely adequate acting, dodgy special effects, and preposterous plots make them somehow fun to watch.
Who wouldn't love a film with Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, and a monstrous aligator? Now where did I put my Barry Manilow LPs?
Thanks, Alex. That was fun.
