On How Did 'Forrest Gump' Ever Beat Out 'Pulp Fiction' For Best Picture?

This article was a pleasure to read, and I mean that sincerely. I've never fully been able to articulate all the reasons I dislike Forrest Gump, but this does it so well, and so perfectly.

On What Was The First Thing You Shoplifted?

I used to shoplift makeup A LOT when I was 12-13, but I grew out of it. (Uuuh the shoplifting, not the makeup)

6-7 years ago, a bunch of college friends and I went on an outing to the city, and the girl whose initial idea it was wanted to go to Urban Outfitters to pick up a few things. so we went, gawked at prices and left, but I turned to her and noticed she didn't have anything either, and commented as such but she shushed me. turns out she wanted to shoplift from Urban Outfitters, which granted, I know they steal all the time, either from designers or the consumer with their poorly made over-priced products. but still, shoplifting? You're in college, come on now.

On What Kind Of Girls Do You Like?

@misselthwaite I don't know, I kind of think Naughty Girl would be in a deep, dark burgundy or purple. Nice girl? OPI Bubble Bath all the way, but Naughty Girl would be rocking Lincoln Park After Dark or something.

On What Are The Best Audiobooks For A Road Trip?

Obviously this isn't recommended for traveling with an all ages group, and not everyone will be down with it regardless but the unabridged Lolita as read by Jeremy Irons.

Neil Gaiman audiobooks are pretty excellent too, I have an mp3 of him reading "A Study in Emerald" and it's really rather delightful.

If you're into YA and/or steampunk, at the very least, the first 2 books in the Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld have been published as audiobooks. The 2 main characters are a Scottish girl passing as a boy and an Austrian prince, plus a whole who of other characters and the whole thing is brilliantly narrated by Alan Cumming. YEAH. It's pretty much the best.
