I almost missed this, but Alex J. Cavanaugh is asking us to list our favorite genres of Movies, Music, Books and a guilty pleasure genre from any of the three categories in his Genre Favourites Blogfest:
I'm a big Science-Fiction fan. The speculative "what if?" is always exciting, but in SF you can make your own rules and characters can exist somehow in a purer state as we are forced to interpret them by their own rules. I also love how malleable a genre it is. It can be combined with practically any other: Serenity is an SF Western, Star Wars is SF Fantasy, Alien is SF Horror, Aliens is SF Action, etc.
I love Britpop. It's not a term that simply means pop from Britain, because that would be horrific. Instead it was a term coined the refer to the musical output of bands like Pulp, Blur, Supergrass, Cornershop, The Seahorses and Ultrasound between about 1994 and 1998. Some people call it Indie which is shorts for independent, but since it was quite mainstream at the time that doesn't really qualify either. I've largely stayed with the same bands as I've grown older.
I read a lot of comic fantasy and Discworld in particular. Although I've been reading a lot of comic books lately and they've been more SF than Fantasy.
I don't really know about guilty pleasures, if something pleases you, then you should be honest about it, but I suppose I like the Where's Wally? books more than a thirty year old probably should.
If you enjoy blogfests, on the 15th of October I'll be holding The Nineties Blogfest here.
