Introduction I love God, art of almost any kind, my family, writing/drawing, reading, watching movies, taking long walks and my dog Darcy. I also love comic books/graphic novels. They are such a great medium! I hope to encourage people to enjoy more art, whether it is theater, paintings, books of all sorts, or opera (which I can never get enough of)!
Interests Books - comic and otherwise, art, music, movies, English...
Favorite Movies The Princess Bride, Swan Lake, Henry V, Howl's Moving Castle, Atonement, Boondock Saints, Snatch, Pride & Prejudice, Amelie, The Tales of Hoffman, Pan's Labyrinth, The Red Shoes (what I always say is my true favorite), Whisper of the Heart, The Third Man, Lucky Number Slevin, The Departed, Shéhérazade, The Philadelphia Story, M, The Triplets of Belleville, and The Fall.
Favorite Music OPERA!!!!!! Especially Mozart's, Puccini. I also enjoy pieces by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Bach, Kreisler, among others. I Really Like Loreena Mckennitt, Brand New, And Panic at the Disco too.
Favorite Books Such a hard question, of course. Here is a little list, but don't hold me to it too strictly. My all time favorite has to be Les Miserables because it is such a beautiful redemption story. I also love The Count of Monte Cristo, The Brothers Karamazov, Great Expectations, The Scarlet Pimpernel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Le Pere Goriot, Ivanhoe, Vanity Fair, Pride and Prejudice, Shakespeare plays - most particularly Twelfth Night, Watchmen, The Sandman, Rising Stars, A Little Princess, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, The Secret Garden, and The Princess Bride.
