I'm looking forward to the Last Airbender too but there's no way a mainstream movie could end in Poly...the sky would fall

LOL I'll try to not let Karma read that My brothers wife is a literature and language arts teacher and she loves the series. She and Karma go back and forth over it all the time. He likes to question her ability to be a literature teacher if she likes those books. At least it gives them something to bond over.

The only complaint I've heard about Airbender is the way they pronounce some of names. But I can overlook that, cuz the movie itself is the best I've seen a looooong time. Karma and I are very critical of redo's but it was done really well.

The ONLY positive thing about that series is that it got thousands of younger people who had never picked up a book to start reading. Maybe after reading those books, they'll find interest in something by a real writer, LMAO.

Sharing success and happiness. Hmm. Success, we hope so, this new situation is quite new. Happiness - well, plenty of that around here right now.

Between that and harry potter, I betcha lots of kids fell into genres that I lived on as a kid. I just hope their is quality out there somewhere.

Wonder what, if anything will be the sci fi hit

Anyone who has a complete collection of "Casca" books by Barry Sadler can't point fingers at someone elses' guilty pleasure...

As for The Last Airbender...my sources indicate it wasn't that good, especially compared to the cartoon.

Sorry, I know this is an "old" post, and I am a "newbie", an outsider, but I had to laugh and then comment about the notion that monos are a "funny bunch". Let's face it, but we're all a funny bunch!!!! If we could just embrace it, instead of picking each other apart, life would be so much better.

And I don't just mean "we" as in monos/polys, I mean people in general. I find that even within my outlier groups (I can officially say I am not mainstream). Within those groups, there still seems to be judgment .

Enjoying reading this blog, mono, rp and nerdist (even if from a distance), and happy to report that I don't feel jealous, only a desire to get to a similar place.

Much admiration,

Christie
