亚当·雷克斯(Adam Rex)名言

In the future, I'd like to continue being honest with myself and admit when I'd be better off asking someone else to illustrate my writing.

在将来,我想继续对自己诚实,并承认什么时候我最好请别人为我的作品举例。

I haven't read the 'Twilight' books, though I suppose, in general, I thought it might be fun to deflate all of the notions of vampire sexiness, secret societies, the idea that anyone could learn to divide the population of the world between fellow vampires and perishable food sources and expect to retain their humanity, etc.

我还没有读过《暮光之城》的书,不过我想,总的来说,我觉得把吸血鬼的性感、秘密社会、任何人都可以学会把世界人口划分为吸血鬼同伴和易腐食物来源,并期望保留他们的人性等等的观念统统打消可能会很有趣。

Vampirism is like celebrity now. Vampires are these eternally young, thin, sexy apparitions of perpetual nightlife and absolutely nothing like their folkloric European boogeyman predecessors. We don't even make our vampires sleep in coffins anymore, or the ground.

吸血鬼现在就像名人一样。吸血鬼是这些永远年轻,消瘦,永远夜生活的性感幽灵,绝对不像他们的民俗欧洲妖怪前辈。我们甚至不再让吸血鬼睡在棺材里或地上。

The original release of 'Star Wars' was literally the first movie I remember seeing in a theater. Four years old was probably too young - I recall believing, for some time, that Darth Vader was a robot.

最初发行的《星球大战》是我记得在电影院看过的第一部电影。四岁可能太年轻了——我记得有一段时间,我相信达斯·维德是个机器人。

I don't know if I'd call it a favorite, but there was an entree in the rotation at my grade school cafeteria called 'Salisbury Steak' that was some kind of freestanding spongiform potage covered in a sauce that would probably have to be spelled 'grayvee' for legal reasons.

我不知道我会不会说它是我的最爱,但在我小学的自助餐厅里,有一道主菜叫“索尔兹伯里牛排”,是一种独立的海绵状药水,上面覆盖着酱汁,出于法律原因,可能必须拼写为“grayvee”。

After I work with my editor to get the manuscript in good shape, I sketch and lay out a whole book loosely, usually in black and white. You learn things about your text when you have to think about pacing and page-turns.

在我和编辑一起把手稿整理好之后,我画了一个草图,把整本书松散地放在一起,通常是黑白的。当你不得不考虑步调和翻页时,你会学到一些关于你的文章的东西。

My favorite classic novel may be 'The Invisible Man.' It's smart and genuinely funny. Otherwise, my favorite character is probably Frankenstein's Monster/Frankenstein the Monster.

我最喜欢的经典小说可能是《看不见的人》,它既聪明又有趣。否则,我最喜欢的角色可能是弗兰肯斯坦的怪物/弗兰肯斯坦的怪物。

After we got our first family car with a tape deck, my dad acquired exactly three cassette tapes: A 'Best of ABBA,' 'Private Heaven' by Sheena Easton, and the soundtrack to 'Xanadu.' I also unironically love 'Xanadu.'

我们第一辆带磁带的家庭车,我爸爸就买了三盘磁带:一个是“阿巴的最佳”,“谢娜·伊斯顿的私人天堂”,还有“Xanadu”的配乐。我也单纯一格地喜欢“Xanadu”
