Los Che Forever, footyfan365 and ILA's Goosebumps discussion thread

OK, so for some material, you can't attach such lofty adjectives as you can for other works, still sometimes I feel like kicking back with a piece of light reading.

Unfortunately its whereabouts are unknown to me, still when I do manage to get my hands on it, I would love to read some of the Resident Evil novels, adaptations of Capcom's survival horror games, presented to us by C.S. Perry, I believe. Although, I was reading Matilda last night and those initials may be intruding into my mind as The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe was something said title character enjoyed.

Especially City of the Dead. Umbrella's t-virus has managed to leak and infiltrate amongst the Raccoon City populace, bringing about mass mutation! Zombies reign over the city! How the **** will Leon and Claire cope after being trapped there for varying reasons? Perhaps the answers will be revealed inside the local police precinct, and beyond...

Please respond to this. I feel this incessant responsibility to keep this forum ticking over. I hope my job is satisfactory.

i don't really stray from highbrow reading for the most part (never been near harry Potter) so i can't help too much, Hunter Thompsons' articles are fun short reads, particully "the kentucky derby" is great, the x-files books were a decent quick read from what i remember and lots of people i know say the Red Dwarf books are better than the tv show.

I'd suggest Robert Ludlum's spy novels if you're into that sort of thing.

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.

I enjoy reading spy novels by John LeCarre and Alan Furst as they write cracking good stories on subjects I am interested in. I read that on the bus. When trying to turn off my brain, Jackie Collins is always a good bet. Her stuff is hillarious. But since she hasn't writ a book in a while, I can always turn to list type books (like encyclopedias for idiots) about music or movies or sports.
And if I'm feeling low, a chapter or two of any good history of the first World War has a way of making me feel better.

You know the scene it's very hum-drum
And my favorite song's entitled "Boredom"...

It was a mania at our school. There'd be piles and piles of books laid across desks in classrooms. For some time my initial thought was "what's all the fuss about" but eventually I was caught up in it all.

IDK why but I used to be a fanatic over Hardy Boys books, and Redwall books. Hardy Boys because the mysteries were kind of cool, and you could finish a book in a day if you wanted to. Redwall because I think there is something cool about Mice killing each other

As for Goosebumps, I never really got into them, only read 3-4 books.

Ja sam Bosnjak - dican junak:
Vjeran svetom domu svome,
Vjeran slavi svojih djeda
I narodu Bosanskome!

Njegov ponos na mom srcu
Ko amanet sveti stoji;
Ponos koji nigdje ne da,
da se Bosnjak lava boji!...

:dielaugh: dude you crack my shit up. I didn't know they had a Resident Evil novel. I remember the 1st game on Playstation was one of the most intense games I've ever played as a kid. I was probably like 12 years old and my friends little brother started crying when he saw part of it

Da volim CRNO-BELE,
Ja ponosno kazem svima,
Ja volim to slavno ime,
I divim se samo njima.
Na svetu nista lepse,
Ne moze da postoji,
Nego sto je nasa ljubav,
Prema CRNO-BELOJ boji.

Ljubav prema klubu,
Ne moze da prestane,
Dok zivim klicacu njemu,
Volim te Partizane.

They were the best, to be honest i haven't read many books overall, like fiction books, so i think Goosebumps is the only fiction books i've read. (read loads of biographies)

Still got the collection somewhere, the show was cool too.

Oh and is there a nerdy little kid called Mouse who's into science? And a formidable bully. It's all coming back to me now.



My favourite Goosebumps is Night of the Living Dummy III. I still have it on my bedside table.
Quoted from somewhere, basically what Monster Blood is about is Andy which is a girl and some other guy buy some a can of Monster Blood and when it's exposed to air it starts to eat people And it weren't a mouse that got bigger it was the guy's dog. He got like propa huge.

It's all coming back to me now the books, i remember one where a brother and sister go to a camp and it's like propa haunted or something. I recall i won the book as a prize at my school.

Oh yeaaa they had the show to. The intro had this freaky clown pop out of a closet and this boat slowly rocking on the banks of a lake at night

What was the book with a little girl sitting on the floor of her room on the front cover, with some little chucky doll or something?

Wait nevermind. That wasn't Goosebumps, it was Nickelodeon's 'Are You Afraid of the Dark' :dielaugh:

Ha! I haven't seen that in so long. It still freaks me out The shows were never scary but this intro always tied my stomach in knots
But wait, I'm pretty sure that a clown is supposed to come out of that closet at the end?

point horror? i think i read the babysitter trilogy from them or perhaps i'm think of something else

Are you affraid of the dark was a great tv show, i remember the episode where a kid got trapped in an alternate dimension where things that were passe or deamed useless went, in hindsight perhaps it was a critical allegory of Imperialism p probably just me, i often see great spiritual significance in the words of childerns tv shows

I think there were some Babysitter novels in the Fear Street series, which I enjoyed as well.
