Now that Halloween is gone and my birthday is over, the next thing to look forward to this winter will be Thanksgiving. One of my best memories of Thanksgiving is from a few years ago, where both Rampaige and I had to work during the day, and my roommates had friends they could go visit. This meant that Rampaige and I went to the grocery store to buy some pies, brought them to my apartment, and ate our pies while watching the Steven Weber version of “The Shining” that aired on TV a few years ago. I will defend it and don’t just write it off as being terrible, like most people think, but it also wasn’t all that great or anything. This started a Netflix chain of adding as many Stephen King based movies or miniseries as I could, and I thought that the stories were all enjoyable. None of them were particularly amazing, but I knew that the problems were all because of the creative alterations, as opposed to the content being shitty. My earliest Stephen King memory is seeing my brother’s copy of “The Stand” and I couldn’t fucking believe how long of a book it was, and the fact that anyone could ever read it. I think my next memory was watching “The Langoliers” on TV and wondering why Balki Bartokomous was getting eaten by weird monsters at an airport. I read that next month there will be a miniseries based on “Bag of Bones” and the marketing looks kind of cool, and made me want to read the book. I went to Barnes & Noble and realized there were a shit ton of Stephen King books I want to read, but really don’t know where to start. This is where YOU, the reader, come in. What are your favorite Stephen King books? What are your favorite Stephen King movies? Where do you recommend starting, and what do you recommend skipping? In other words…TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT STEPHEN KING!
