ALL OF THE (FAVORITE) THINGS!
« on: 17 May 2013, 06:33 »

So, Primo inspired me in the Happy Happy Joy Joy thread (see below). I just can't resist a good list. Perhaps this belongs in "Enjoy" but I couldn't make up my mind so mods, please move if you see fit. What are a few of your favorite things? Raindrops on roses? Whiskers on kittens? (Ok, please forgive that one. Just couldn't help myself there). Let's stick with entertainment. Books, Movies, TV, Video Games, Webcomics, Blogs?



No, not counting (traditional-style) books, or video games for that matter.

Movies.... Meh. There are some really good movies out there, sure, but almost none I could just watch over and over again.

Counting books,  movies, TV, ect, my all time favorite things are, in order

1) MSPA
2/3) The real FMA series (not the first amine)
2/3) Red Vs Blue
4) The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy & Restaurant At The End Of The Universe
5) The entirety of the Bionicle franchise (don't judge me >_>)
6) The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel
7) Iron Man (movies)
8) Young Wizards
9) The Bartimaeus Sequence
10) The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (entire series)

I also need to point out how much I love that "8 )" gives us fabulous sunglasses dude. He pops up in lists all the time and it makes me giggle.




OK, took me a while but now I'm ready to add mine. I will be the first to admit that this list makes it look like I am completely insane.  :-P

1. Snatch
2. Ren & Stimpy
3. How I Met Your Mother
4. The Bloggess
5. Possible Side Effects
6. Lilo & Stitch
7. Requiem for a Dream
8. Law & Order: SVU
9. Dude, Where's My Car?
10. Cat's Cradle

8) That can be fixed: 8) - if you want (that's also the official way to display any tag, e.g. to show how it's used).

good to know. I've tried using vBulletin's "[noparse]" tags, but they didn't work here of course. I have to admit, I've never liked Simple Machines Forum. It's better than vBulletin, but I simply love phpbb.

BTT:

1) The Russell T Davies era of Doctor Who
2) Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels
3) H2G2 (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the whole trilogy of five books)
4) The Big Lebowski
5) Inglourious Basterds
6) Portal (1 & 2)
7) Most of the "Magic: The Gathering" novels
8) Borderlands 2
9) Dexter
10) The Elder Scrolls

I have nothing to do with the choice here, but I really dislike phpBB myself, and get irritated each time I visit a forum using it...

Luckily for me all the forums I am admin of (yes, this ain't the only one now) run SMF.

I've done (and suggested) that in the past (using [b][/b]), but thought I should recommend this command I noticed recently...

I was not counting Video Games....

I have not had the good fortune to play any elder scrolls games, but portal (1&2), minecraft, dragon age origins, Spyro Eternal Night for GBA, and the Halo franchise all deserve a place on this list of I'm counting Video games.

fuck it, why not

most of what i like are less individual books/games/what have you but worlds i really find fascinating

especially ones that build on societies and cultures and how they grew and all that

(and yet i've never read lotr)

1) yipe!
1) homestuck
2) legend of zelda
3) harry potter
4) geneforge
5) the elder scrolls (including prequel)
6) full metal alchemist
7) discworld
8)) sherlock
9) avernum
10) adventure time

other than like the top three there's no real order there. avernum would probably be higher up.

i'm missing some really big ones in here somewhere which is dumb as fuck because i know i'm missing them but can't figure it out.
