Recommend Stuff!

Not as creatively titled as a lot of the threads around here but that's a skill I'm hoping to develop with the passage of time. :D :angel:

I thought that since we are all so different in terms of where we come form, stuff we like, experiences we've had - we could recommend things for each other to try. Like places to visit, books to read, :music: to listen to, movies to watch, food or :drink: to try...anything at all really.
Or you could warn people off of stuff you did try which turned out to be rubbish.

I'll start off with :

1) CSI Las Vegas: totally gory but gripping tv series with some girly eyecandy(http://www.angelfire.com/ky3/dourdangallery/littleblue_dourdan.jpg )thrown in between postmortems and finding missing eyeballs
2) Peanut butter and cheddar cheese sandwiches. Culinary masterpiece in two seconds.
3) Madeleine Peyroux. French jazz singer: sounds uncannily similar to Ella Fitzgerald

My favourtie movie of all time is 'Blade Runner'. Many years after, it's still :cool: and kick ass on sci-fi department.

For the romantics, 'Cinema Paradiso' in Italian is just beautiful.

A movie that has impressed me for the super high quality acting is 'The Hours', it's not for everyone's taste but the women in the movie really knows their craft.

You're amazing, everyone's said at least one thing that I'd also recommend. :worship:

Books:

The Catcher in the Rye - J.D Salinger (my favourite book since I was 17);
Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass - Lewis Carroll;
Everything Oscar Wilde, Henry James, Jane Austen, the Brontë Sisters, Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Andersen, Alexandre Dumas and Edgar Allan Poe have ever written; (yeah, classics are my cup of tea ;) )
The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath; many others.

Movies (too many to mention, so here's just a few):

Edward Scissorhands; Stand By Me; E.T.; Peggy Sue Got Married; Beautiful Girls; Dead Poets Society; The Bridges of Madison County; The Age of Innocence; Dangerous Liaisons; High Fidelity; Chasing Amy; The Virgin Suicides; The Hours; Donnie Darko; Ghost World and tons more, but I'll stop here as you're probably snoring by now. :zzz: (and I didn't even mention the classics! ;) )

Music:

50's oldies, 70's and 80's songs I grew up with, and lots of movie soundtracks. Recently I've been listening to Morrissey, Rufus Wainwright, ben Folds, Gemma Craven, Katie Melua (so not hip, I know :lol: ).

Oh and surfpinky and Deb, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" is just one of my favourite sci-fi movies from the 50's (I looove those :kiss: ).

The perfect classical album?:

J.S. Bach, The Goldberg Variations, played by 22-year-old Glenn Gould in 1955. :worship:

This is the type of album you could turn off the lights and listen to intensely-- there's so much there --- but it also fits well into the background if you want to relax, or put it on during a nice dinner party.

Donnie Darko :hearts: LOVE LOVE that movie.
I wanna see the Virgin Suicides really badly lol. We have it so I guess I'll watch it this summer. Oh and 21 Grams too

I worship "Donnie Darko"!!! :worship:

And "The Virgin Suicides" is just something out of this world... Hope you'll like it. ;)

"21 grams" was just too strong for me to take, but it's an excellent film.

Yeah those are my two favorite Pop/Rock artists and they are probably my two favorite artists period. Great looks and great music. And it also helps me kind of see what a girl wants. But I still have girls problems, lol. Oh well, yeah they rock!


I forgot to add Rob Thomas's "This is How a Heart Breaks" song, it's cool!
:worship: My two favorite albums. :)

Boo to your girl problems. They will come around some day. :p

Music wise Maroon 5 is awesome. Give their CD a listen if you haven't. Movie wise, if you like romanitc type dramas, P.S. with Topher Grace and Laura Linney is really good. Plus I think Topher Grace is hottie so that's a bonus.

Amber I love your music choices. Diana Krall is just a jazz ass-kicking Goddess :worship:

I have to add "Adia" by Sarah Machlaclan as a song to cry to.

And "Layla" by Eric Clapton (the unplugged version) as the best song to play air-guitar :music: to. :rocker:

"the Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrison is worth a read. The subject material is quite serious, but the book itself is not more than about 250 pages, I don't think. On the surface it's about a little black girl who wants to be a blonde-haired blue-eyed white girl - because she believes that that's the only true representation of beauty. But in truth, it's not actually about race, it's about unattainable standards and the lengths people will go to look a certain way or attain an impossible dream - no matter how unhappy it makes them. It's really is beautifully written. And quite heart-breaking at the end.

I love School of Rock. Jack Black is too funny :) And i love Shaun of the Dead too, the zombie spoof with Simon Pegg in it. He's one of the funniest british men now. He was also in short-lived sitcom Spaced, which is like my favourite show :bounce:

I love John Legends album right now :cool:

Me! :yippee: I love BSB and NSync. :) It's pure, unadulterated pop. Although I haven't bought anything by either group in years. Backstreet definitely better vocally, NSync vastly superior as performers. If you are a fan, you have to see NSync's 2001 VMA performance. So, so good :worship: :worship:

Ok, I just have to recommend this band. I've been trying my best to promote them wherever I can. They're called Star74, and they sound like John Mayer meets Lifehouse - so if you like that type of music you should definitely check them out. The lead singer was my history teacher in highschool, and he rocks! Check them out - http://www.star74.ca/
