Lists and Stuff January 24, 2010

Posted by regan222 in Books.
I just added a pile of favorite books, movies, and photos.  I think a pattern is emerging.  Not sure what it is though.  I am realizing that I really like that oriental plot device where even though the hero wins, everyone dies in the end.  Does that make me maudelin, depressing, or do I just have trouble with people who have overcome some world shaking conflict going back to their ordinary lives.  Frodo should never get to go back to the Shire to live happily ever after.  Buffy and Angel should have triumphed over evil and then been allowed to pass from this life together in some heroic, tragic, and totally unexpected last minute gasp of the villain to spend the rest of eternity in whatever place Willow and the others dragged her out of at the start of season 6.  (Hows that for an obscure cultural ref.)  For one thing, it allows the heros the dignity of not having to deal with overdue car payments and long lines in the super market.  Ah well, good night all.  I am going to have trouble getting up as it is.
