asked about these, which I've taken out of order to explain them more easily.scutters
From the TV series Red Dwarf, Scutters (or Skutters) are the helpful robots who do much of the manual labor on the Red Dwarf. Their hobbies include playing Cowboys and Indians, giving the finger, and enjoying John Wayne movies. mr. flibble
Another Red Dwarf one, in the episode Quarantine the character Rimmer(a hologram) is infected with a virus that gives him Hex Vision and drives him insane. Mr. Flibble is the cute fluffy penguin puppet that Rimmer uses to terrorize the rest of the crew, since both Mr. Flibble and Rimmer can shoot dangerous eye beams due to the Hex Vision its a very effective method of terrorizing the rest of the crew. Mr. Flibble
is best described as "very cross." bel thorne
A secondary character in the Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold, and the name of my ipod. Bel is an officer in the Dendarii Mercenaries and a genetically engineered Betan hermaphrodite. I really wish she'd used this character more, Bel is nine kinds of awesome.dresden files
My mother introduced me to this book series, its written by Jim Butcher and has been made into a TV show that I've yet to see. Whats not to love about a wizard who lives in modern Chicago and works as a Private Investigator to pay the bills? Its equal parts fantasy, mystery, and action so it makes for fairly good fluff reading.mirrormask
A movie that Neil Gaiman wrote and the Jim Henson Company worked on. Its pretty much "Neil Gaiman rewrites The Labyrinth without David Bowie." I netflixed it and loved it, but I still haven't added it to my collection. petshop of horrors
this manga throughout highschool, all ten volumes of it. The basic plot is that an unusual chinese businessman (Count D) moves into LA's Chinatown and starts selling rare and fantastic pets to people who have various issues. Each pet comes with a contract that states how the pet must be taken care of for it to remain happy and healthy. Usually the person breaks the contract in some way and suffers horribly for it, sometimes how
they broke the contract reflects an earlier action of theirs and they are punished for both actions by the pet.
Throughout the manga Count D is pursued by Detective Leon, who firmly believes that the Count is selling drugs or running a prostitution ring. After a while Leon pretty much gives up on ever catching Count D at anything (and has witnessed a great deal of unexplainable weirdness) and they basically become friends. Leon's jealousy issues added some hilarious HoYay!
I REALLY disliked the anime and the manga's sequel series.quaker parrots
My grandmother was going to a friend's house out of town, and I asked her to visit the petshop we'd been to over that way and find out what those green birds they had were called. Instead she brought one home with her. So now I have Cosmo the Quaker, who is an interesting companion and a royal pain in the ass.
He has eaten meals with me, gone to the lake with me(in his little birdie carrier) and scared the hell out of me when he tried out the Coot noise he learned at the lake when I was half asleep. Its because of him that I can pick out a flock of wild Quakers when I'm in the Tampa area just from the noises they make.
