I am reading a Hardy Boys book for my paper in my kids lit class. While this is exactly the kind of material I am looking for (to rip to SHREDS), I have to wonder just how sexist/racist/classist a book has to be when the 1955
edition warns you that the book, as it was published in the 1930s, may be offensive to some readers.
Meme!1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.
Here's what missdeep
wanted to know about me.1. A CD that helps you relax.
I don't actually listen to very much music, largely because my computer had a nasty habit of overheating on me, but aural stimuli can be really hard for me to process, especially if I'm trying to do something else at the same time. I do have relaxing kind of music iTunes playlist though, which includes: Piano Concerto in A Minor (Grieg), True Colours (Kokopelli), Symphony of Sorrowful Songs (Gorecki) and a few more.2. Favourite Enterprise captain?
Picard. Actually, I quite liked the Captain from Enterprise C, who seemed like she had a really practical, solid head on her shoulders, but we saw so little of her. The entire Original Series tends to make me want to kill someone whenever I watch it, so Kirk is definitely out, and without having watched Enterprise all the way through, I found Archer a little bit too stiff, a little bit too bland. Picard, on the other hand, was such a rich and wonderful character and I really love that he seemed to be a diplomat first. Some of the other Captain were intellectually curious about other species and cultures, but Picard really seemed to balance everything well. Of course, it doesn't hurt one bit that Patrick Stewart is a brilliant actor.3. Have you pre-ordered the final Harry Potter book?
I have and there is so much anticipatory squee!4. Manga you've thought about reading but never gotten around to picking up.
I was always interested in Clover, but the volumes I found were generally very expensive and I am iffy about buying manga I don't know anything about in the first place. I think it was the gorgeous artwork that draw me in, more than anything else.5. Daggy song you don't want to admit to liking but secretly play whenever you're alone.
If I had a copy of it, I'd play Wham's "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" on repeat, probably while dancing around and singing.
