I can't wait for the movie

Did you ever love a book so much that when you heard that they were making a movie about it, you were simultaneously excited beyond belief and scared that they'd get everything wrong? Scared that the characters would look wrong, or that good parts of the story would be left out? I know friends who worried in this way about the Harry Potter series, or the Lord of the Rings. For me, that book (and its new movie) is The Golden Compass.

The movie website is slick and from what I see, I think I'm going to like the movie. And they have a little quiz to take in order to find out what your daemon (the external manifestation of your soul) would be. I was all over that. I found this at Postcards from the Mothership, and Danigirl has her daemon set to change forms based on feedback from her friends. I think that I know me best, so mine is staying put: Adan the jackal.

  1. A jackal? Ooo, that's pretty cool too!

    So thanks for clueing me in to the fact that these are pretty cool books! There are more than 70 people in the queue for the first book at the library, but I might swing by Chapters and indulge myself. I'm desperate for something good to read and to fill the HP void...

    Thanks for the lead! Of course, I can't see the movie until I read the books. Like I ever watch movies anyway.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what
    youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    I think that everything posted made a ton of sense. However, think on this,
    suppose you were to create a awesome headline?
    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title to possibly grab a person's attention?
    I mean "I can't wait for the movie" is a little boring.

    You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about what you've written.
    Just my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
