Fangirl Friday: Scream, The TV series

For this Fangirl Friday, I'm going to tell you a little discussed secret on this blog. ​I LOVE HORROR MOVIES!! I love them with every fiber of my being. I watch them year round, but October is horror movie mania for me. I will watch as many as humanly possible. Halloween 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, H20, Omen (sometimes both versions), The Exorcist, Nightmare on Elm Street, Candyman, Psycho, It, The Shining, you name it, I'll watch it. Except Halloween 3, fuck that movie. It's terrible and it doesn't even have Michael Meyers in it! Anyway, my all time favorite horror series is the Scream series. The first movie is one of my all time favorites of any genre. I knew that MTV had put together a Scream TV series, but it was on MTV and MTV's other shows are SOOOOOO not my style, that I had never watched. I didn't really even follow it on spoiler sites. I basically ignored it's existence. Until I went to the movies with my two best, local friends about two months ago. Before the movie they were talking about watching Scream the TV show and how they both needed to catch up on season two. They both said they really enjoyed the first season and were anxious to catch up on season two. Now, both of them have some questionable taste in movies and TV, but they are my best friends, so there is some cross over. I decided to finally give the show a shot. I am so, so glad I did!! I LOVED it! I binged both seasons, as much as I could working and parenting a toddler. Join me after the break to hear my squeal and gush over this show a little more!

Quote of the Day

"All myths contain a grain of truth, Ms. Lane. I've handled books and artifcats that will never fine their way into a museum or library, things no archaeologist or historian could ever make sense of. There are many realities pocketed away in the one we call our own. Most go blindly about their lives and never see beyond the ends of their noses. Some of us do."

​“I thought you were some sort of camp counselor,” Julian finally said to Kelly. “Work with troubled kids and all that.”
Kelly pursed his lips. “Yeah. It’s called Camp Asskicker. I’ll give you a ‘you tried’ badge next time I see you.”

"I tend bar. I like music. My sister was murdered recently. I seem to have gone insane since then," I added this last almost conversationally.

Fangirl Fridays – Dragons and Dragonriders of Pern

I don’t know about you, but for me dragons are absolutely enchanting. There is something fascinating and captivating about them. They are both majestic and terrifying. As far back as I can remember, I’ve been in awe of these magical beasts and wanted to have one as my best friend.

Dear Smaug

I used to look for drawings, photos, sculptures, and stories of the mythical creatures. Almost every civilization has created some form of dragon.

I read about Chinese and Japanese dragons, and discovered that a Chinese dragon has four or five claws on each foot, while the Japanese dragon has only three. I found out that my Chinese Zodiac sign, derived from my birth year according to the Chinese lunar calendar, is the Dragon.

I read Norse dragon mythology. There are three dragons primarily represented in Norse mythology: Nidhogg, Jormungand, and Fafnir.

I devoured tales about the medieval evil dragons. There are so many stories, legends, and descriptions of these magical creatures that it’s easy to believe that they exist ... or existed once.

Dragons can be friendly or vicious, tiny or gigantic, real and loyal allies, or a deadly force of destruction. They are clever, cunning, and sometimes sensual and very seductive.

The first science fiction series about dragon lore that I loved very much was Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey. After the jump, I’ll tell you about these books and their magnificent dragons.

Quote of the Day

He raised a brow. 
“It's a children’s love story.”
Lillian gaped at him. 
“It’s Romeo and Juliet.”
“Babes without any sense. 
Killing themselves over infatuation.”
“It’s considered one of the greatest love stories of all time.”
He lifted one shoulder and let it drop. “Unless you know better.”
“And I suppose you know better?” 
she scoffed.
"Without question." He leaned forward in the darkness, allowing his brogue to thicken. “You want romance, you ask a Scot.”
