Tell us about your favourite band/musician.
Isn’t that kind of obvious? What, do I have to re-title this blog “Emily’s Beatles/Bowie/Dylan Shrine” or something?

Which author made you want to be a writer (or blogger)?
Far too many to name, tho I think I started blogging (back in the LJ days) just because my friends were doing it and it looked interesting.

Stupid corporate bookstores that used to have good books but now only sell crap. Among other things.

Are you a fan of a certain actor or actress? Would you watch anything they're in?
Yes, but I do have limits. Like, I’d never willingly watch a Michael Bay film even it if had both Ewan McGreggor and David Tenannt in it.

Have you ever drastically changed your opinion of an author as you read their book? Become a fan? Lost your fan status?
My opinion of J. K. Rowling changed as I read The Graveyard Book. (Not that I love HP any less, but Gaiman is the better writer.)

What is the best way to fan the flames of creativity?
Read, listen to music, go to a gallery, watch a movie, etc. Draw inspiration from others' creativity. Or just get really really drunk.

No. “Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.” --Oscar Wilde.

Would you rather deal with vampires or zombies?
Given that they’ve turned into a bunch of emo pussies, Vampires. Zombies are becoming exponentially badass.

What is one thing you would never in a million years eat?
Didn’t I just answer this? One thing I would like to try that others probably wouldn’t eat, though, is haggis.
Wednesday, June 22, 2011
Do you prefer big crowds or small groups?
Small groups. Unless I want to practice my (nonexistent) ninja skills.

No particular author, though the American Girls series had a lot to do with it.

If you could live in any other time period, what would it be?
The 70s, because my tastes in music, clothes, politics, and theory are there already.
