@Haunshaul: Maybe something by Taylor Swift?

By the way, I know in my first comment I said I didn't like Chester, but he's really grown on me, I definitely like him now. I think the turning point in my opinion of him was that question where someone asked what would happen if his swag was taken away, and he said he would cease to exist. I'm really interested to see whats going on with him here, maybe he's met Lannette before?

Oh and by the way, completely unrelated, note, have you ever read the Raven by Edgar Allen Poe? I read it recently, and if you haven't I would suggest you do, it's quite short, I really like it, and I thought it would be the sort of thing you might like after seeing some of the stuff on your deviantart account.

@ozymandias_jones: Raven is a requirement to read in most US schools. It one of the few stories that everyone should know the reference to.

But yea, that is a good story. Just that it like recommending someone from the 90's to play Mario. =P

@Zelkova: Ah sorry, I'm from the UK, so I didn't know that, I only read it a couple of days ago for the first time.

Also, that song would be impossible to hum :P

@Zelkova: Dude, asians can't read, we sense

Reply Zelkova, February 24th, 2013, 10:18 am

@ozymandias_jones: So do you guys have requirements to what you have to read?

The US generally read all of Edgar Allen Poe, Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare and by high school you should have gotten Macbeth (also Shakespeare) somewhere in there though I seen some went without it because of how weird your classes can get at that point.

@coldhotshot: Slightly racist? =P

@ozymandias_jones: I KNEW YOU WERE TROUBLE WHEN YOU WALKED IIIIIN
SO SHAME ON ME NA-OWWW....

...anyways.

Yes, I've read The Raven. And The Black Cat and The Tell-Tale Heart and a few others. Most were mandatory for school but I also got the complete Poe for Christmas cuzz he's awesome.

@Zelkova: I don't remember if we actually read Macbeth ever or just watched a production of it. We read Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Hamlet for sure though. I liked most of them. If I can figure out how to post PowerPoints as cartoons I'll upload the parodies I did of Romeo/Midsummer. They're quite good in my opinion.

We also had to read my two least-favorite books of all time during middle/high school: The Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway and Beloved by Toni Morrison.

We did however read Of Mice and Men which is incredible.

@Haunshaul: You sure did read a lot of poems and plays. Sounds like you're... *puts on sunglasses* ...well versed.

YEAAAAAAAAH

Anyway, out of curiosity, what is your favorite book of all time? Mine is either Inheritance or The Count of Monte Christo. Or maybe the Narnia books (collectively).

Reply Haunshaul, February 24th, 2013, 3:31 pm

@Lockman: You get five points for that terrible pun, and I'm gonna have to redirect that question to the Questions page because it would have a pretty long answer. =P

Somehow I feel like he'd hum Thrift Shop...

Reply Zelkova, February 24th, 2013, 6:12 pm

@Haunshaul: Mice and Men was one book I didn't regret reading and actually enjoyed in school. Another was 12 Angry Men. Great story that we read in my school.

@Zelkova: Kind of hard being self racist

Reply Haunshaul, February 24th, 2013, 10:37 pm

@coldhotshot: Voldemort did it no problem.

Reply Miles Hikari, February 24th, 2013, 10:41 pm

If we are on the subjects of favorite books, mine are the Rei Shimura series, the Predator Cities Quartet, and Ready Player One. If you only meant classics I'm a big fan of Agatha Christie.

@Zelkova: Thanks too you I want to play Pesona 4 even more now than I already did!

Also as for what Chester is humming.... Thrift shop... Most definitely Thrift Shop. Or he could surprise us all and hum the entire Niko Niko Douga.

@Zelkova: @Haunshaul: Well the education system over here is kind of in flux at the moment, but here's how it worked for me. At most schools, it is compulsory to take an English Literature GCSE (exam you sit when you're 15/16), in which you look at a Shakespeare text (I did Macbeth, but other schools looked at different plays), and a different book selected from a defined list (I did Of Mice and Men). Those were both quite good, but the rest of the time we just looked at these short story and poetry anthologies, which I was less than impressed with. In the poems, there was Ozymandias, which I love, and a couple of other nice little ones, but most of them were little known modern ones, which used lots of technical literary devices, so they were easy to analise, but they weren't in my opinion used naturally, which gave them all a sort of clunky feel, and the same applies to the short stories. I think this has sort of put people in this country off poetry, which is a shame, as some, such as The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, are really good. Also, the Iliad is great, especially in Greek. As much as I love the UK for many reasons, at the moment there isn't nearly enough of pupils just being told to read literature, without over analising it.

As for my favourite books, I love Nineteen Eighty-Four, which it should be the law to read, Enders Game, Snow Crash, and the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series. If you haven't read any of those, I suggest you do, they're brilliant. Oh, and although it's not particularly sophisticated, I loved the first Hunger Games book, but the sequels weren't so good.

Dude, my favourite book is garfield.

What is Chester humming Either battle music:Ride of the Valkyries,
chill music: Don't Worry Be Happy,
or awesome music: Chester's Theme Song

Reply Chrisleech, June 18th, 2013, 5:18 pm

Why I like Chester When he showed up as an Oddish he was full of really annoying tendencies that made me not like him, but now he's mellowed out quite a bit and has changed status from poser to swagger. I usually don't get Oddishes for more than my Pokedex but Chester is actually cool enough that if I found him in the wild I might keep him on my team.
