1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?
I don't read much, but when I do, I mostly read magazines -- EGM, Guitar World, Entertainment Weekly, etc. But I also like novels.
2. What is your favorite novel?
Off the top of my head -- The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.
3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)
Gah... I know very few poems, but I really like this one by Robert Frost:
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Don't ask me why I like this poem, 'cause I honestly don't know.
4. What is one thing you've always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read?
The Divine Comedy by Dante. I never got to finish it.
5. What are you currently reading?
Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. It's a graphic novel, so if you don't consider that reading, fine. I'll be starting Fight Club next.
Unoriginal opening sentence wherein I express the belief that 2018 was a pretty good year for cinema, but not as great as 2017. Standard-iss...
I was just telling the now-25-year-old Wench about this, as she just had her gangsta birthday party yesterday (which was awesome btw). So ...
Yes, it's finally here. The list everybody and their mom have been waiting for. What took you so long, you ask? Well (a) I've been ...
