    Amusements: Becky Cloonan

    QUEEN ON THE CASTLE
    With her action-adventure book “East Coast Rising” (TokyoPop) about to debut, writer/artist Becky Cloonan shares her pop culture inspirations and why all bets are off when it comes to Castlevania.


    RECENT MOVIES SHE’S SEEN

    “Sunset Boulevard”
    “Spinal Tap”
    “The Duelists”
    “The Occult History of the Third Reich (documentary)”
    “The Ninth Gate”

    MOVIES IN HER NETFLIX QUEUE

    “Faust”
    “Blue Planet (documentary)”
    “Tokyo Godfathers”
    “M”
    “The Impostors”
    I used to watch a lot more movies; lately I’m a lot pickier about what I watch and how I spend my time. There’s nothing worse than spending a few hours watching a movie that afterward thinking, “I just took two hours of your life.” That doesn’t mean that every movie I watch has to be “Citizen Kane,” but there’s a lot of big-budget shit being made lately, not just movies but all over entertainment media. I find that I look backward to find good entertainment rather than try and keep up with the new stuff.

    BOOKS
    “HP Lovecraft: Tales”
    “Turn of the Screw”
    Brian Wood gave me “Angels and Demons” a long time ago and I’ve read through the first few chapters and just haven’t picked it up again. Sorry, Bri. I’ll get around to it, I promise.

    VIDEO GAMES
    “Castlevania: Harmony of Dissanance (Game Boy Advance)”
    “Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Game Boy Advance)”
    I can’t play more than one game at a time, and even though I’ve been drooling over some more Nintendo DS games, I’ve vowed not to start anything new until I defeat Castlevania. If I do start a new game I’ll never finish the old one. Oh, the guilt.

    SONGS ON HER PLAYLIST
    ” The Last In Line” – Dio
    “The Splendour of aThousand Swords Gleaming Beneath the Blazon of the Hyperborean Empire” – Bal-Sagoth
    “Dance Commander” – Electric Six
    “Less Than Zero” – Danzig
    “Together in Electric Dreams” – Human League

    MISC.
    I’ve been visiting a lot of antique shops lately. I love looking at old photographs, cameras and film equipment. That’s been inspiring me a lot more then the usual movies and music bit. The other day I found a stool made out of an elephant’s foot! You can’t get much cooler than that.
