Genre Favorites Blogfest

I know, I'm late to the party, but I'm here at last so let's get this post a rollin' shall we? The awesome Alex J. Cavanaugh, Captain Ninja extraordinaire is having his Genre Favorites Blogfest today. We get to share our favorite type of Movie, Music, Books and a Guilty Pleasure from one category..Yay! There's nothing I love more than to talk about my fave subjects: Movies, Music and Books.

To see all the other incredibly cool peeps participating click right here.

My favorite genre for film is a toss up between sci fi and fantasy, but for rules' sake I'm going with fantasy and my all time is the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Especially The Two Towers. I want to fight at Helms Deep and I would so kick Ork ass.

Favorite genre of Music...Hard Rock. I am an Aerosmith chick all the way, 27 years and counting. They are my longest relationship, LOL. I still dream about marrying Steven Tyler. I love that mind of his and so what if he looks like a dessicated chicken. I think Joe Perry is one of the best ax men ever. Here's a taste from one of my all time fave tunes from my boys. Hole in My Soul is one of the best misery love songs ever and appears here thanks to the work of Aerosmith fan layonlima at You Tube.



For Books is hands down, it's romance. Yes, ROMANCE. And all kinds too, from the erotic to the sweet. I read it and write it because well, the fictional stuff is so much more exciting than my own real one. And it gives me hope. Why I have no idea because I'm far too old for romance. One of my all time favorite is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Oh how I love me that giant Scot, Jamie Frasier.

And now for a Guilty Pleasure. I love those, don't you? My Guilty Pleasure genre is Country Music. Yes, you read that right. I have a recessive red neck gene that makes an appearance every now and again. Bet you didn't know I could Texas Two Step and line dance, did you? Well I can and I'm pretty good. Here's one of my faves to get my boots scootin', California Girls by Gretchen Wilson from her You Tube Vevo.



Hope you had fun reading my faves here. Have a great day and see you around the blogfest. :)

  1. No, not the country music! Just kidding.
    Knew you were a rocking chick. And cheating is all right, as it was difficult for me to decide between science fiction and fantasy.
    You're never late to the party, Melissa!
    Thanks for participating in my blogfest.

  7. Is Gretchen Wilson still making music? She's a big deal over here, as her hometown is about an hour east of here.

    I laughed out loud when you said Steven Tyler looks like a dissected chicken!

  9. Awesome list, hon! And very surprising, at least for me. :)

    I had no idea you enjoy country music. I don't, but I don't hate it either. There are some really fine country songs.
    Aerosmith and romance? What the hell?! :) I'm loving it! LOL.

    Now come over and check out my list. :)

    1. Why thank you! Yeah, you know I don't talk about my country music thing very often. LOL

      I know, romance, right?! Me, the big cynic. :)

      Love your list, sweetie!

  10. ooh, oooooh, TWO TOWERS are my fave in LOTR too, Melsy!
    Having in mind that Aerosmith is your fave band, let me be chaste and modest as always and ask you have you ever tried some love in the elevator? :)

    1. High fives for Two Towers! Love in an elevator, hmmm... I never kiss and tell. ;PP

      I love all the LOTR parts in which they delight me with Eomer and his Rohirims :)

  17. The Two Towers is my favorite of the LOTR trilogy too. And now that I'm thinking about it, I think I need to watch it again.

    Yay for Outlander. That was great start to the series.

    1. Yay another Two Towers fan! I'm going to watch again myself LOL

      Outlander rocks. I've reread it and marked passages. :)

  18. Fantastic choices - and I agree with...most...of them. Not much on the romance genre for books - and I'd have to think long and hard what to replace it with. In the meantime, throw on some George Jones and Aerosmith and pop in The Two Towers - that should keep me busy while I figure it out...

  19. I was late too! We were fashionable late ;D
    Fun picks! I love Aerosmith...
    ooh, Outlanders does rock...off to find my copy ;D

    Take Care :D

  21. Country music? Really? I guess that's why it's a guilty pleasure, huh? Good to meet you Melissa. As you can see, I'm still working my way throught the list. I'm not much for Fantasy, but Lord of the Rings really rocked my world. Great job, Mr. Jackson! I love the Aerosmith shout out. Have you seen them live? I think I've been to two shows. Have a great weekend!
