I'm a Fan of Life

I am a fan of life.  Here are some of my favorite things, in no particular order.

 

©      The Atlanta Braves:  Come on, they’re the Braves!  And they have Chipper Jones.

©      “Terminator” movies, especially the first one:  a lifetime of love in just one night juxtaposed with the end of the world as the machines take over.  What’s not to love?

©      Epic movies like “The Last of the Mohicans,” “Troy,” and “The Last Samurai”:  Big themes!  Love, honor, revenge, immortality, the last of a breed.

©      Robert Redford:  not in the movie about sleeping with a woman and giving her a million dollars.  It’s not his best work.  “Jeremiah Johnson,” “Three Days of the Condor,” “The Way” *sigh* “We Were.”

©      The TV shows “Justified” and “Project Runway”: Clever lawman with several relatives who are criminals in his jurisdiction.   Sewing outrageous clothes in response to outrageous challenges.  I like them because they’re original – Justified has really good bad guys, and PR has very little of the reality TV backbiting and sniping – it’s all about the clothes!

©      And while we’re talking clothes:  I’m a fan of fashion and always have been!  You wouldn’t know it to look at me since I rarely wear anything cool or outrageous – jeans, black pants, t-shirts, jackets.  But I read VOGUE every month, and have for many, many years.

©      Zombie movies, and especially the TV show “The Walking Dead”:  Zombies!  What a metaphor for the soullessness of our modern culture!

©      Dessert:  enough said.

©      Patricia Cornwell novels:  Kay Scarpetta is an amazing creation – a brilliant woman!  She needs a little humor, though.

©      Stephen King novels:  Yes, they can be gory, but King has some serious themes running through his work – how the things we want destroy us, the hypocrisy in much modern religion, narrow-mindedness, life after death, and best of all – what will the end of the world look like?

©      Pecans:  Come on, I’m a pecan farmer!

My list of faves goes on and on.  More to come!
