•Day 03: a book/ebook/fanfic
I recommend A Collision of Habits by reddwarfer. It's a crossover fic, Stargate Atlantis and Stephen King's The Stand. Currently, there are three chapters, Anywhere But Vegas, Just A Few Detours, and City Limits. There is supposed to be one more installment, but the last chapter posted ends well enough that you won't go crazy waiting for more. But if you do read, please review. 'Cause I do want more. XD

It's actually a tie for the top spot, between Seinfeld and Mystery Science Theatre 3000. :P

I truly feel Seinfeld is art. Now, if you don't find it funny, that's fine. But it kinda pisses me off when people write it off as stupid; especially since so many of those people have seen one episode AT MOST. Believe me, John got this tirade when he said that. I think one reason why art is important is because it can hold a mirror up to society. I've heard people say Seinfeld was dumb because it was about nothing and had some truly selfish characters who had little or no redeeming qualities. While I recognize that both those things are true, for me that is kind of the point of the show. By exaggerating the self-interest of these people, they showed how we as people are more motivated by self-centered reasons than we may like to admit. Using the vehicle of the banalities of everyday life made it more accessible to the general public, and a lot more funny. Now, I don't know if any of these things were the intention of the creators; but that is what the show means to me. :P




And Mystery Science Theatre 3000 is just fucking awesome. Do not say otherwise.
