I found this quiz and couldn't resist sharing. It gives different results at different times, but I've tried to pick my favorites (Mata's name kept getting the best results) and delete the enormous definition windows.

After taking a look at the old 2005 movie thread, I decided that we needed one for 2006.
What upcoming 2006 movies are you looking forward to the most? If you've seen any that came out already this year, feel free to review them in a quick no-spoilers blurb.
I'm waiting for X3 above all right now. Hopefully it'll hit the standard that the second one set.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest sounds decent, but it could turn into a horrible sequel.

I was luck enough to get Sandman books 3-5 for Christmas today and I've read 3 and 4. I liked them a lot, but I'm looking for suggestions on other good comics to read when those are all bought and read. Since you, my fellow forumites, tend to have good taste in books and movies, I'd like to know what your favorite comics and graphic novels are your favorites. This will be far more interesting than going through long lists of books on Amazon and trying to decide if the reviews are useful.

If you want to discuss anything Sandman-related, don't spoil anything past book 5 or I'll be cranky and have to scrub my brain with acid to remove the spoilers. ph34r.gif

There's been a favorite movies thread, so here's one for books. (I run low on reading material at the most annoying times, so I'll watch this thread for recommendations.)
What are your all-time favorites? Those books that you read until they're about to fall apart from all the reading, the ones you pick up whenever you feel depressed or bored. I tend to have trouble picking a few, as I've found so many good ones, but here's some for starters.
~ The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix. He had some fairly interesting and new ideas about how to run several proper magic systems.
~ A lot of Terry Pratchett books, especially the ones about Death or the Ankh-Morpork crew.
~ The Young Wizards set by Diane Duane. She writes a tight and consistent magic system, and they're getting better and more complex as they go.
~ Anything and everything by Dave Duncan. It makes me cranky whenever I stop to think that he hasn't written anything new in years.
I know that some of these are in the young adult system because the mature content is light or absent, but the writing itself is quite good.
More later when I think of them and have the inclination to type out a longer list.

I was scrolling down the list of Daft topics and noticed that we have threads for avatars and character desriptions but not one for signatures, so I thought I'd start one. I've seen some great sigs, and I'd like to know where they came from and what they mean.
I'm proud of myself for waiting until I hit 350 post before I started a topic, as this is my first one. smile.gif
The first part of my sig is a listing of the bells in the Abhorsen set by Garth Nix (read them). I love the books and the bells are cool, so I just put them in.
"I am a leaf on the wind. See me soar," is a quote from Serenity, which I just got to see the other night. 'Tis a great quote, and I loved the whole movie. I didn't want my sig getting too long, so I chose one of my favorite quotes.

Sharing time!
