Oh noes! Two keyword meme-games for a Saturday

Today, while I make my last desperate run at finishing my story, and while I stare in terror at my Remix assignment, I offer you two meme guessing games.

This meme works like this: I pick ten television shows I've watched, then select three keywords from the IMDB plot keywords list for each show. You try to guess the show from the keywords. I have, of course, been fiendish about my keyword selection.

This isn't quite as fun as the Amazon SIP book meme, which stumped my tiny flist of the time, while my real-name blog readers shredded it in about 5 seconds. So! I repeat that game here.

Pick ten of your favorite books, look them up on Amazon.com, and find the list of Statistically Improbable Phrases for those novels. Pick a few SIPs from each book, list them here, and then have people guess what books they are. (Obviously, using Google or Amazon to figure it out is cheating.)

ETA: Screening comments just to keep the fun going!
Remaining: one TV show that much of my flist has watched; 7 out of 10 books. (Mr P was able to guess 5 out of 7, but I'm not counting him.)

Hello, remixer!

Dear Person Remixing me-- Maybe you know me already, in which case you already know what you're in for. If you don't: Hello!

I'm sort of neurotically tidy-minded, so my back numbers are easy to find.
• del.icio.us bookmarks - probably the best access point
• static archive - easiest to read
• LJ fiction tag - uber-complete, but hardest to navigate

I didn't mark any stories as safe. Stuff that's "incomplete" for the sake of Remix:
• "The Adventure of the Sigerson Crypt"
• "Partners"
• "Please"
• "Readings"
• "Reconnection", the storyline in parts 2 & 3 (part 1 is standalone and fair game)

I hope you like Giles, though woah, you've got more options than my last poor remixer had! Last year I had nothing non-Gilesy to offer, but this year I have been branching out a tad. Hope you find something you can dig into. Go for it! Have fun. And be daring.
