The sad thing is, he's done some good stuff, but what he did to Batman, combined with the abomination that is Final Crisis, has caused my hatred for the man to burn hotter than the hinges on the gates of hell.

All right, and with that, I'm out for a while. Later folks, and have a great day!

Just for you Freehold.

And, re: Grant Morrison. His 'reboot' of JLA in the 90's was AWESOME. Then, like many a great comic book writer, he took the crazy pills and never returned.

I can't wait for this movie. I'm sure I'll be killed with all the boos I plan to give in the theatre, but my sacrifice will be well worth it.

Howdy Monkey Man? How's Ally?

As for LotR - to this day it's one of my favorite things ever written. I can read it over and over.

Ally is about the same, which is better than worsening, so I'll take it. We have been uber busy with commutes to Boston. I have to work late today so I am not sure if I will be going, but I am about to keel over anyway. LotR I have read about 5 times. I had a weird mental block about the Silmarillion, I think my parents bought it for me too early, it was kinda inaccessable and I grew a block about it. Recently Leaf Man suggested I listen to the audiobook, and it worked so well I just finished the second run-through.

Positive waves, man!

Silmarillion was one of those that I read, thought was OK, then revisited years later and liked a lot better.

I was a precocious reader, but sometimes the references just didn't click with my elementary-school brain. The copy I had from my parents was the first American printing, so they obviously thought I'd like it since I had read the LotR at nine. I just think the Ainulindalë chapter was a bit over the top for a ten-year-old. Then since I had failed at puzzling it out, I never got a handle on getting though it.

I wonder why the Prydain Chronicles don't get as much love as Narnia.

I've often wondered that myself. I read that series and enjoyed it. Hell, I still talk about making sure my "poor, tender head" stays safe. I only own two of the books, but one day I'll go back and purchase the others.

And, of course, I only learned that Lloyd Alexander lived here in Philadelphia AFTER he died! Although maybe that's a good thing. Otherwise, I might have become a stalker.

I'm almost done reading the Percy Jackson series with my son, and the Prydain books are next on my list of things to read to him. I've always loved them. And yes, they are better than the Narnia books. I loved the Narnia books when I was little, but when I tried to read them to Bryce he got bored with them before we made it through the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. I had to concede that he had a point. I think Prydain will be right up his alley.

Also, it's fun reading to a kid who doesn't understand you yet isn't it? Bryce used to love to hear the Just So Stories when he was a baby. He couldn't understand a word of it, but there was something about the rhythm. I spent hours walking him across the floor and reading to him when he was colicky. It was the only thing that made him stop crying.

But yeah, I think we all have those days. Hope yours gets better soon.

Love the book, the movie isn't bad either. Prefer Eyes of the Dragon. Great novel.

*blimk*

Morning zombie.

My first book series was the Hardy Boys. At one time I had the whole 59 (??) books in the series. Strangely, I don't particularly like mysteries anymore. Of course, my second series I got for my ninth birthday was the LotR. Guess which one I liked better?

I was about that age when I found out about LoTR, however it was on a field trip and it was at the back of my teachers fiance's van. He quickly grabbed them up and got them put away because he did not think they were kid appropriate. I was intrigued so I asked my mother who went out and bought me the Hobbit then surprised me with LoTR's for my birthday. When I brought one of the books to school later that year while reading it, my teacher almost had a heart attack. It is very funny in hindsight.

I had much the same issue with Silmarillion at first. It was a much better read through the second time. I had trouble trying to read through Children of Hurin But Leafy tlaked me into it and I was glad I read it. That's the tragic story.

Same here. I've never seen a really satisfying version of Salem's Lot done for TV. Although I think if they did it on a pay channel like HBO or Showtime, it could be awesome.

Have you seen the Robb Lowe version?

Sadly, I'm coming to the belief that comics just ain't what they once were. It seems todays crop of writers have difficulty telling story in a single issue. Hell, some of them have problems telling a story period. But some of the old warhorses are still around, and still writing good stuff.

I find that the marketing departments seem to have a problem telling a story that does not involve world changing multi issue cross overs. Blah

Yes but the animated Black cauldron was in fact the least liked movie in Disney History. For them it was a total failure. Where as Narnia was done if not great at least very good.

If it had been spectacular, as it well could have, then the books would have exploded. Now, well it failed once why would anyone want to remake it?
