You know, I voted in this poll way back and I don't remember what I voted for. Back in high school, I think I was probably just under ten books (and I'm not counting the text books or the books I had to read for English). The only time I had for reading in high school was thirty minutes twice a week...

A couple years ago my favorite series would have been Harry Potter. But now I really like The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, and the Codex Alera series (also by Jim Butcher). Although at this point my top favorite over the two would be the Codex Alera series--that's only because I'm reading it...

Some books I recommend are: Loneseome Dove by Larry McMurty (I just started reading it, but it's a very good book. And it's a western, for all you Western lovers out there.) The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher (I absolutely recommend these books. It's fantasy/science fiction/horror, and it's abo...

Currently I'm listening to Foreplay/Long Time by Boston (which is refreshing, considering how yesterday I had The Boys Are Back in Town stuck in my head the entire day. Annoying when a song gets stuck in your head like that...)

I grew up on a mix of artists from the 90s, 80s, 70s (and maybe some late 60s). I insisted upon listening to the Backstreet Boys, Britany Spears, N*Sync, Spice Girls (though I didn't have any of their CDs, but I did see the movie), and Hanson. My parents however? Whenever we went on long car trips w...

I absolutely loved Die Hard 4. I've never seen any of the previous Die Hard movies (well, I have, but only brief snippets here and there; I have Die Hard, the first one, on VHS but I've watched almost the entire movie on TV) so I thought that Die Hard 4 is a great way to introduce all those born aft...

My favorite Disney movie isn't animated (well, it is partially); it's Mary Poppins. That movie has got to be my all-time favorite Disney movie because, from what I understand, I watched it ever since I was a little baby (and wore out a VHS copy of the movie so I really loved the movie as a baby). I ...

My favorite type of music has to be rock (first and foremost), but I also enjoy some classical, oldies, and R&B (the original kind, like Blues Brothers sort of kind).

I have a lot of favorite old movies. Some of them are musicals, though, like Singin' in the Rain, Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Pirates of Penzance. The others aren't that old: My Cousin Vinny, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, and some others. Like I said, I have a lot of favorite old movies /smil...

Well, I used to play the flute from 4th grade to 8th grade. I still play it occasionally, but outside of school. The other instrument I play is the acoustic guitar. I'm not particularly good on it, but I can strum out a few chords. To be honest, I don't play guitar quite as much. Maybe three or four...
