The ones with men and women in compromising positions on the covers (or the spine). With cheesy fonts, and cheesy titles. Because sometimes, there is nothing more entertaining and cathartic than romantic drivel (and I say this with all affection) coming from devastatingly attractive men of your imagination. Oh yeh. Even the bad ones have that so-bad-it's-good quality. Which is part of the charm in skank. In no particular order...

Great concepts realized, or very memorable images, or creatively witty or just very heartfelt and sweet rendering in a few short minutes of airtime. Or just videos that call out to me for some strange reason. In no particular order and probably ongoing.

Pagmamahalang Inudlot ng Tadhana. On TV. Characters that simply flirt, or are close friends that go nowhere, or nothing is never pulled off because it's one-sided, or it becomes a missed chance, or they never say anything, or they have a moment, but it's never followed through. At times, the relationship is begun but is also unceremoniously cut short, or destroyed by the TPTB when the characters are taken in a strange direction.

Some of them are partly read (marked P), but some are just unread (U). And these are books that I still want to get around to reading someday, or I would have put them up on BookMooch. This isn't all of them though. Just the ones I sincerely want to read and intend to do so someday. The ones that are, or have become too "popular" for me to have the drive to read. Old school classics discounted.

  • Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer (P)
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer (P)
  • Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (U)
  • Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pressl (P)
