Re: Firefly vs. Heroes.

FIREFLY. FIREFLY!!! I spent fifty fricking dollars on the episode DVDs, and I don't regret a cent because it's awesome. The notion of watching DOZENS of superheroes every week galls me. My limit is one Hero/Sidekick team per medium unless they're a Five Man Band, and that Five Man Band needs at leas...

Re: What is your favourite animal to eat?

If I had to limit my meat consumption to only two kinds of meat, I'd pick beef and pork. You can't go wrong with beef and it's classic meaty flavor, and there's no way in hell I'd give up bacon. Duck is delicious, but it's a bit too flavorful for me--I find it best on special occasions so I don't bi...

Re: Food you hate

Coming from a Filipino family, I seem to like things/parts of animals that non-Filipinos are a bit squeamish about. Meat: Everything except for the liver and brain of an animal is good with me, including the blood if it's stewed right. However, I've never tried brain and I get a bit squicked about t...

Re: Go Away Dub Watchers: The Proper Anime Thread

I have a more comprehensive list of my favorites: Movies: Princess Mononoke Spirited Away Howl's Moving Castle (extremely different from the book, but that doesn't mean it's not GOOD.)

Re: Books you wouldn't recommend to a friend

I wouldn't recommend Twilight because it's disturbingly purple-prose and pretentious. Also, Robert Pattinson is quite correct that Twilight sounds like Stephenie Meyer's self-indulgent fantasies, and we should give her some privacy and NOT READ THEM. Also, the vampires are totally NOT vampires. They...

Re: How do you read?

While I CAN read fast enough for the words to start sounding like keyboard clicks in my head, I much prefer reading at the speed of average talking. While I read, the characters all have their own voices (including the narrator, which is a baritone man's voice for some reason) and I tend to read dia...

Re: The best realised universe

Along with Tolkien and his universe's lived-in feel, I think I'd like to live on Anne McCaffrey's Pern--NOT just because of the dragons. It's because the people sound more like people, and their personalities are shaped by their experiences and surroundings instead of being static, unchanging figure...

Re: Whedon's Doctor Horrible

Words cannot describe how much I love Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog . Fantastic singing (especially from NPH), excellent (if tragic) deconstruction of Superman, and the ending, while standard Joss fare, is VERY unique among similarly-themed movies. Who else would have the balls to mentally break so...

Re: Who likes BREAD?

Bread = yum. I usually eat crackers with my soup, if anything, but I'm definitely going to try it with bread next time I make some. But the bread bowls are DEFINITELY something I'm familiar with--if I'm at any place that has them (usually boardwalks or by the coast), that is the first thing I'm goin...

Re: "Helping" Discussion

Sorry if I'm reviving a dead thread, but I've been catching up on XKCD comics and this one struck an EXTREMELY big chord with me. Last year I was the girl in the comic, and for three months I waited for the "guy" to come and help me--partly because I wanted him to, and partly because I had...

Re: Movie treatments of books

Edit: Hayao Miyazaki could probably pull off a decent film adaptation. Howl's Moving Castle. It deviates pretty far from the book in some aspects, but Diana Wynne Jones herself mentioned that it was a good movie adaption in its own right. It's one of my personal favorites--I get this warm fuzzy fee...

Re: The. Wost. Thing. You've. Eaten.

I suppose that a lot of Filipino cuisine (that isn't lumpia, adobo, or pancit) would be acquired taste for people who haven't been raised on it, just because of the intense flavors like in paksiw (fish or meat cooked in vinegar) and sinigaang (soup with tamarind and lemon juice). I've also been surp...

Re: The steak poll

Medium-rare. I like it cooked enough to get the meaty taste, but raw enough to keep the texture and juiciness.

And as I've refreshed my memory from my sister, I'm the only one who doesn't prefer their steak well-done in my family.

Re: Anime!

My top three anime are: Wolf's Rain. Even though the ending TRAUMATIZED me, it's nice to see wolves acting like wolves and actually KILLING--even Toboe, who is not a natural fighter and is one of the two nicest characters in the show, knows he'll have to kill in defense; to prove this, he took down ...
