My sweetie talked me into starting on David Eddings' Belgariad. I'm about 1/4 into the third book now, and I can hardly wait to see what happens next.

At the moment? There's Bachman Turner Overdrive's "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" playing on my LaunchCast station. Yay!

Oh, such a list would have hundreds of titles. Let's say the favourites of what's been playing on my Discman recently, OK? That would be Blind Guardian's "Precious Jerusalem", "And Then There Was Silence", "Bright Eyes" and "Theatre Of Tragedy", and Nightwish's "Planet Hell", "Moondance", "Ghost Lov...

I listen to a lot of different things; I tend to go about disliking particular artists rather than whole musical genres. I'm a rock/heavy metal girl first, but I enjoy Celtic and classical music just as much. I think the one thing that some musical act has to have for me to like it is a gorgeous voi...

In animation technique and artistry, I prefer Pocahontas. The colouring was amazing! In terms of story and generally of how we judge non-animated movies, I think the Lion King is best.

My primary concern is for a movie to be a good movie. I've seen good and bad stuff in just about every genre. And a few fall into the "so bad it's good" category. Some are more to my taste (horror, adventure, fantasy) than others (comedy, romance), that's all.

Being older than the vast majority of people here, I remember a lot of films that for others might sound positively ancient. But instead of rattling off a list, I only want to point out a little gem that you might ignore: the 1993 version of The Three Musketeers . It has next to nothing to do with t...

I read all the time I can get away with it. I carry reading material in all my bags and take advantage of bus and train rides, or queues anywhere. I go easily through a couple of dozen books a year, let alone the magazines. (Don't snicker. Not all periodical press is fluff. There ARE magazines that ...

I made up this name long before even discovering HOL, for a RPG chronicle (that is still running). Both parts come from the comic book series "Raptors", where there's a pair of cops called Lenore and Spiaggi. I always thought Lenore was a lovely name, ever since reading Poe's "Raven" - how fitting t...

Le (short e, like in "led")-NORE (like in "more")

SPIA (like in "piano")-ggi (the double g sounding like in "George")

Relatively easy, once you get familiar with it.
