Sheesh, these things just fly by. Feels like I posted my original Q&A post yesterday. But you all asked some great questions, and it's time to gather them up! Let's jump right into it, and thank you to everyone who participated!
Questions are listed in the order they were received.
Note: The Q&A has ended. Check out my answers here!
"The sands of time have run out, Son of Durotan... The cries of war echo upon the winds. The remnants of the past scar the land, which is besieged once again... by conflict."
-- Medivh, Warcraft III
Hiya! A beautiful good morning, day, or night to you, whenever this post finds its way to your screen. The quote above is totally irrelevant to my post here, but I couldn't contain my excitement when I realized that it's just under a month now until the US release of Warcraft, a movie that I've been dying to see made for nine or ten years. June 10th is premier day, and I'm just sitting here feeling absolutely giddy and terrified at the same time. Although, the director is freaking Duncan Jones (creator of Moon and Source Code), so.. I've a feeling it'll be a marvelous film.
Anyway. Sorry. *cough* Back on track.
Sometime on May 10th, my blog's pageview count hit 30,000. This is another small milestone that I am so grateful to have achieved - and only because of you. All of you. You fantastic people. And I like to celebrate the small things. Because what are big things but a bunch of little tiny steps and goals and achievements?
Okay, so. Recently I've come across some people in the blogging world who had never heard of a certain favorite famous author of mine, and it was one of those moments that make you go, "What?! Never??" That can't be!
So now I've been inspired to spread the knowledge, and I thought it might be fun to do it in a tag format, since you don't - at least I don't - hear people talk about their favorite classical authors very often. To be expected, it's mainly modern names you hear - like John Green, J.K. Rowling, etc.
However, "classic" has a sort of broad definition, and a name that is considered a classic where you're at may not be considered one elsewhere. But essentially I'm using it here to mean any well-known pre-21st century author (preferably 1950 and earlier, but famous works must have been published before 2000).
