Solez' LiveJournal

The name's Dark Solez, but you can call me Eoin. I've completed a BA in English and History, and I have also earned MA in American Literature and Film, with my dissertation on William Faulkner's Snopes Trilogy. I thus intend to be a Faulkner scholar, first and foremost.

In gaming, I'm a big Nintendo fan, ever since I got my N64. Then the GBA, the DS, the GC and most recently, the Wii. In manga, I enjoy Yu-Gi-Oh, Shaman King, Death Note, Chrono Crusade, Cyborg 009. In anime, Cyborg 009, Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokémon, Haruhi Suzumiya, Death Note, Noein, Gantz. In reading, only the greats-I'm a big fan of literature. While Faulkner, Roth, and Joyce are my first loves, special mention must go to a few choice favourites such as The Scarlet Letter, the works of Shakespeare, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Tender is the Night, Everything is Illuminated, On the Road, The Catcher in the Rye, and Murphy. So American, Irish and Modernist literature, with a touch of the Renaissance. I also have an interest in writing, and one day I hope to publish some kind of book, whether it be a novel, an anthology, a book of criticism. In films, anything goes, although some of my favourite films would include Schindler's List, Lost in Translation, the Indiana Jones series, James Bond, Bowling for Columbine/Farenheit 9/11, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, The Departed, Michael Clayton, Inglourious Basterds, Little Miss Sunshine, Downfall, Spiderman, Batman, Inception, Ghostbusters, Mean Streets, Annie Hall, Manhattan, The Godfathers, Jackie Brown, Gone Baby Gone, Reservoir Dogs, Drive.. the list goes on.
