One blogfest, four favorites!
List your favorite genre of:
And a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories!
My favorite movie genre: Science Fiction
I saw Star Wars in a drive-in theater, and I was hooked. From Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers, and Flash Gordon, I would watch these TV shows and movies with amazement. It was like the Wild West in space. Spaceship battles, good guys vs bad guys, and awesome sci-fi weapons and technology. I grew up on this stuff, and I still love it today.
My favorite genre of music: 80s Music
Call me nostalgic. Or maybe I'm just in denial about the whole aging process. I love me some 80s music. Pretty much all of it. I still listen to Michael Jackson, Journey, Van Halen, Duran Duran, INXS, and Queen. What's really cool is that my kids know all the lyrics to these songs too.
My favorite book genre: Classic Steampunk-Science Fiction
One of the biggest influences of my writing today is this fun fix of science fiction, alternative history, and speculative fiction. The first novel I ever read that made me go "WOW" was H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. And then I picked up Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in Eighty Days. These books were about adventure and technology - wrapped around a strong moral tale.
My guilty pleasure: 90s Bubblegum Pop Music
This is a big confession for me, but I do like saccharin sweet pop music. Everything from New Kids on the Block, some N'SYNC, a little Backstreet Boys, and yes....I do have a couple Britney Spears songs on my iPod. Some other iPod confessions include Milli Vanilli, PM Dawn, The KLF, and (gulp)...I do believe there is a Spice Girls track on there...or two.
