Wednesday Media Mix

Here's a meme from over at My Digital Ghost.

[Listen] What song have you listened to the most in the past month? Does it an any way reflect the current state of your life, or is it a song you just happen to like a lot?

Well, I've not had any particular song I've listened to a lot in the last month, but if I had have done, it would probably just be because I liked it a lot. Mainly, I've just had my iPod on shuffle (and that in itself might be fairly reflective of the current state of my life, where I seem to have a mass of things to do, and keep flitting from one to the other in a fairly random way).

[Watch] Do you feel like you always root for the right people in movies/TV?

Yes, I tend to, but that's because the right people tend to be the main characters (if the bad guys are the main characters, e.g. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, V for Vendetta, Goodfellas; then I tend to root for the bad guys), Basically it's the writers who decide who we should root for, usually trying to make us like the good guys and hate the bad guys, so I just play along.

[Read] Do you prefer to read fiction with very clear good guys/bad guys, or is it better if the line is blurred?

I probably prefer clear good guys/bad guys (assuming the story's that type of story) because that way I can easily figure out whether the story has a happy ending or not. I don't mind blurring in an anti-hero sort of way, but if all the characters are too blurred then things just get confusing.

Interesting responses on good guys vs. bad guys! I can see what you mean by figuring out how the ending of a story will pan out. I love hearing why people enjoy certain stories vs. others.
