We should have something for one of the independent bookstore link sites too. Anyone recommend a good one?

Collected bits from lists, etc. (To be worked into the system, adding here so they are at least somewhat available).


cf. http://www.wildmuse.net/faerie/biblio/


From Kyrie:

Movies

Toys, with Robin Williams. The whole story is about the triumph of innocence over the heartless, violent aspect of this world.

Empire Records. I know this sounds odd, but when you watch the subtexts ofthis movie (the movie is really fun even on the surface), you begin to notice.... well, I won't ruin it, but the character Lucas is definitely not your average human. :)

Music

The soundtrack to Toys. Particularly 'Closing of the Year' and 'Let Joy and Innocence Prevail'.

The Waterboys. Almost everything on their CD, 'Dream Harder'. Particularly apt are 'Glastonbury Song', and 'Love and Death', the latter being a Yeats poem put to music. And basically, they rock. :)

'Tam Lin', a scottish ballad, has been translated very well into Celtic Rock by such bands as Steeleye Span and Tempest. Tempest's version is on their album, The SERRAted? Edge.

Phoenyx did a song called 'Creature of the Wood', which is a must-hear for satyrs. I'm not sure of the album.

Cecelia Eng, a filksinger (you can find all sorts of appropriate filk through Firebird Arts & Music), did a song called The Real Life. Again, I'm not sure of the album. It's about 'real' life seen through Glamourous eyes.

Books

Gamebooks! Despite their divergences & inaccuracies, they're a great source! Particularly White Wolf's Changeling: The Dreaming.


Arhuaine:

<< Shadowtime (Siouxie & the Banshees) >> for kin-related music, i dont know of any that make direct reference to otherkinnyness, but i find the SMiths? to be much more relevant to my personal otherkin experiences, and Joy division.


Morose:

my book reccomendations (comics included): i have no idea who wrote it, but - Hellblazer: Dangerous habits

Neil Gaiman - Smoke and Mirrors, good omens, the entire sandman series, the first four issues of the Books of Magic

Howard Phillips Lovecraft - just about anything he wrote is holy writ in my personal paradigm

Clive Barker - the thief of always, cabal, Imajica, the Great and Secret Show, Everville. Clive is a childhood fave of mine

Jhonen Vasquez - Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, I Feel Sick, and Squee. JTHM and IFS both deal with individuals plagued by the same extradimensional Lovecrafty monster, and Johnny is revealed (in later issues) to be Otherkin sorta. Squee is about Johnny's next door neighbor, perpetually plagued by aliens, giant dust mites, and distant, uncaring parents. it's funny, if nothing else

Serena Valentino - Gloomcookie. yes, the earlier issues are just overdressed people at clubs, but there is a real cloven hooved monster under sebastians bed, protecting him from some of the sinister Kin in town.

Movies

Clive Barker - Lord of Illusions, Nightbreed

david fincher - fight club, seven

no idea who - the Crow, Dark City

the breakfast club

real monsters

the addiction

Organisation is fairly loose. By preference make a page for each item you recommend and explain why you are doing so. If you just want to add your recommendation to someone elses (so folks know that it's more than just one person's idea of a good read), just add your name to the description page.
