Why Lost is amazing.

Okay so basically I think Lost is the best show on tv today. Honestly, the day I sat down to watch the first season I was blown away. I really had no idea what the hell the show was about except for the fact that they were stuck on the island. Then I finally watched it and I was like "shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit how have I let this show be on for 4 seasons without watching it. Anyway now I'm totally fucking hooked and it's basically something I am constantly thinking about. I mean, the other day I sat at my computer on Dark Ufo for 3 1/2 hours. I didn't even realize. I looked at the clock and was like holy shit it's 3 am. I swear I could read theories without giving any opinion for hours lol. It fucking astonishes me the devotion of Lost fans, I absolutely love it. These people research everything and won't post a theory until they've totally convinced themselves. I still don't have the balls to post one lmao =) It's great though because you can read 20 theories and come up with your own from a combination of each theory. It's just awesome insight.

Why Lost is Amazing.

1. Flashbacks/Flashfowards
2. the fact that the island is a character within itself.
3. the many levels it has reached through out it's 5 1/2 seasons
4. Sawyer
5. they gave us an epic character like Locke
6. how sci-fi it's really become
7. Jacob
8. Smokey and the Statue
9. Ben
10. every unsolved mystery
11. waiting a week for a new episode feels like dying
12. Ben
13. time travel
14. the numbers
15. Richard Alphert and his agelessness
16. Dharma and Dr. Marvin Candle
17. Desmond the game changer
18. It's amazing season finales
19. Walkabout, The Constant, and The Man Behind the Curtain (besides many, many others)
20. the others/hostiles

I'm gonna stop here because I could on forever thinking of every detail of the show and it'll take too long. So I think I'll post 20 at a time and continue the list at another time.

On another note: I'm about to finish Interview with a Vampire and it's an absolutely amazing book. I would recommend it to anybody. I'm also going to read The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned in the next couple of monthes. I'm going to take a breather from the series and read The Ruins by Scott Smith.

Here's a quick summary =):
Trapped in the Mexican jungle, a group of friends stumble upon a creeping horror unlike anything theyve ever known in this national bestseller. A long scream of horror. It does for Mexican vacations what "Jaws" did for New England beaches.--Stephen King
I was told it is one of the best horror books so I wanna see for myself. I'll keep you posted on how it goes ;)
Well thanks for reading (if anyone is) and have a lovely evening
Namaste, Marissa

Wow I have a blog!

Well the time has finally come that I got my own blog. I am constantly reading everyone else's blog and seeing there opinions of things I love and never saying my own. Well I'm done with that! I'm the type of person that devotes herself to things she likes. I never just like things though, I become obsessed and consumed by them =) but that's a beautiful thing because life's hard enough without having something you absolutely love. For me, I have many, many things I love and most of them are either television shows or books. TV is my passion because a tv show is kind of like a book. Throughout the seasons, you learn more and more until the very end when everything (usually) comes together to form an amazing, satisfying ending. Don't get me wrong I love many movies. But movies can't always give you the satisfaction that a tv series can. I feel like good movies are easier to come by then good shows so when I find a show that's really that good, I have to know everythinggg. This means I must watch a show from the very, very beginning, I can't miss one episode, and I must watch it in a place where no one will bother, talk loudly, or distract me from what I'm trying to watch lol I must sound totally crazy.. I'm not =) Okay anyway this also means I read threads, blogs, theories, info on the cast, interviews, and any other possible information I can find. I do trivia, take quizzes, and ocassionaly read fan fiction. The one thing I do notttttt do is read SPOILERS! I just will not do it lol. What's the point in trying to spoil the show. I want to see what's going to happen when the writer's decide it's time to show me what happened. I compare spoilers to reading a summary of the Harry Potter series and not actually reading them. WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO DO THAT! In my personal opinion, it's just pointless but whatever it's just my choice. Anyway this blog is going to be primarily about the shows i'm watching and the books i'm reading. Why, do you ask, am I doing this? Because it's my blog and I can =) I will also probably ramble about random things I just feel like rambling about. If anyone ends up reading this, I hope you enjoy my many obsessions and if no one ends up reading this, I'll still ramble. That's all for now! I'm actually quite excited about this.
Coming very soon: a list of my favorite shows
Namaste, Marissa =)
