A to Z Challenge – Inception and I Walk Beside You by Dream Theater, Plus Ninja News

My theme for the A to Z Challenge is Favorite Movies, Bloggers, and Music! I’ll name a favorite movie that corresponds with the letter, and then select a character from the film. I will then name a favorite blogger who reminds me of that character, and then dedicate a song to him. (Also corresponding with the alphabet.) I’ll wrap it all up with trivia and/or fun facts about the movie, the blogger, or the music!

In addition, two lucky commenters this month will receive a review copy of CassaStorm! One comment per day and each is worth one entry except – the first and one hundredth comments on each day will receive ten entries!

Inception

Christopher Nolan is a genius. Original science fiction is so rare that you should treasure it when you find it. The cast is stellar and the storyline intricately perplexing.

Ariadne comes to the group young, fresh, and very talented. But she’s not naïve or easily fooled. She knows what she’s doing and keeps the others in line. Ariadne is the grounding force.

Who is Ariadne?

Tina from Life is Good!

(Much to her surprise, I’m sure.)

Tina may think she’s scattered and unorganized. But she’s really on the ball and full of great ideas. One of the A to Z co-hosts, she’s behind the scenes keeping things moving. Nothing gets past her. Everything she does is for the best of the group and her blogger friends. Tina is that spark we all need. And messages, comments, and emails from her just brighten my day!

Tina is originally from Sweden and is a writer and devoted A to Z Challenge Co-Host.

To you I dedicate I Walk Beside You by Dream Theater. (Song title links to YouTube video.)

“I walk beside you, Wherever you are, Whatever it takes, No matter how far…”

Trivia and Facts:

In her posts, Tina often refers to someone called “The Engineer” – who is he?

Did you know that in Greek mythology, Ariadne aided Theseus in overcoming the Minotaur by giving him a ball of red thread so he could find his way out of the labyrinth?

H’s trivia answer – Hellboy’s father was played by John Hurt.

Ninja News

I am looking for co-hosts for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group for the next few months. If you can help by visiting twenty to twenty-five blogs on the list the first Wednesday of the month, please let me know. Thanks!


Rachel Schieffelbein revealed the cover to her upcoming book, Secondary Characters, which releases May 28. Congratulations, Rachel!

hi there, Robyn from Lifebychocolate told me about your blog. And I read about you there :-) I am definitely an insecure writer. Sign me up!

L.G. Keltner said...

Great movie, and great song choice!

Lynda R Young said...

Gah!! You picked another movie I missed! It's a great one that one.

Happy to help with IWSG

Mark Koopmans said...

Aloha,

Love Nolan, too, although I have yet to see Inception...

PS... I'm on-deck to help with IWSG in May, but please feel free to slot me in for another month (except Sept.)

PPS... Mail arrived, thanks :)

Rachna Chhabria said...

I was dying to see Inception, somehow I missed watching it. Tina sounds like a wonderful person.

Will be glad to help you out with IWSG.

Nancy Thompson said...

Inception is one of my all-time favorites, So smart and intricately plotted. And sure, you know I'll always help with the IWSG (Except for next month since I'll be in Arizona. Already entered your GR giveaway! I'll be happy when it's completely over. It's wearing me down.

YVONNE LEWIS: said...

Although I have never seen the film, I listened to the song and it has great words. I'm sure Tina will be over the moon.
Another excellent post and choice.

Yvonne.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex .. Tina is amazing and I'm glad to be on her team .. she's always busy - but always has time .. and I'm certain she is a bright spark in the A-Z world ..

Her Swedish posts are fun to read .. and the story line of her arrival in the States - can give us a greater insight ..

Thanks for highlighting her .. I obviously need to get into the SciFi arena!

Cheers - you do an astonishing job .. Hilary

T. Drecker said...

Tina's posts are terrific. I'm enjoying them every day :)
And congrats Rachel!!!!

Zoltán Gecse said...

I enjoyed very much the Inception. And the creepy shiphorn-feeling sound... Yay!

Medeia Sharif said...

I like Rachel's cover.

I really want to see Inception.

Ray Rousell said...

An excellent and very weird film. Hadn't heard the song before or even heard of the group!! Not a bad track at all!

Cynthia said...

I loved Inception and Hans Zimmer's "Time." I would be mentioning the movie at least a couple of times before the end of the month on my blog.

ediFanoB said...

Inception is an excellent movie which I enjoyed very much.
It is intelligent entertainment.

Empty Nest Insider said...

Tina is a terrific choice! She really does give her all on both blogs. I'll have to visit her again soon. I'm still in awe of all you do Alex!

Julie

C.M.Brown said...

I enjoyed watching Inception!

Am heading to watch Oblivion tomorrow, I hope it is good!

Really interesting cover for Rachel's book. Great angle!

Natalie Aguirre said...

I really liked Inception too. Great choice.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Inception is a great film - although I am so disappointed in the younger generation of people I know who don't even understand it!!

And Tina is a great choice to feature. The Engineer is her husband, isn't he? I read her blog, but now I'm not sure :-)

Sheena-kay Graham said...

I can help you co-host IWSG Alex, just pick a month and I'll be there. Oh yes, Nolan was a genius for helping bring forth the unique science fiction prodigy that was Inception. I'm going to check Tina out and Rachel's cover is so wonderful.

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

I've not watched "Inception" yet--but my son watched it. Unfortunately, he rented it while he was in bed suffering from a fever and...well, you can imagine his crazy dreams that night!

Suzanne Furness said...

I could help with IWSG in June or August if that's any help? School holidays are best for me as I can be around more!

Off to check out Tina's blog...

Elise Fallson said...

Haven't seen Inception yet, but I want to. Will check out Tina's blog! Congratulations to Rachel Schieffelbein!
(:

Melissa Bradley said...

Congrats to Rachel! Tina is a wonderful choice for Ariadne. She is a great pillar of this community and is so supportive of so many. I love her blog and glad I met her through last year's challenge.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Tara, welcome!!

Lynda, thanks!

Mark, had you on the schedule. And are you referring to the book? Cool.

Nancy, just keep swimming as Dory would say!

Hilary, her posts have been great.

Ray, Dream Theater is one of the best prog rock bands out there!

Carolyn, let us know!!

Sheena-Kay, thanks!

Elizabeth, I'm sure it was double the fever drams.

Suzanne, that would be great.

Misha Gericke said...

Awesome movie choice.

I can help with IWSG is you need me. :-)

S.P. Bowers said...

Love inception! And I call my hubby The Engineer on my blog. I wonder how many writers are married to engineers? Maybe it's a combination that really works.

Jeremy [Retro] said...

Tina is the tops and she sometimes forgets all that she contributes to us, her family and herself. I call her my sister, she would be welcome in our family, with open arms... great choice song to share.

I am better knowing she has my back!

Elsie Amata said...

I tried to watch Inception but I just couldn't get into it. My hubby and kids enjoyed it though.

Kimberly Gabriel said...

Christopher Nolan is a genius - you're right. And I love Adriadne's character.

Cathrina Constantine said...

Inception was an intricately, phenomenal movie! I've watched it a few times.

Matthew MacNish said...

We love Tina! Such a great co-host.

SA Larsenッ said...

I really enjoyed Inception. The structure of that film was amazing!!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Inception was amazing and even the ending played with your head.

Melissa said...

I'm peeking out of my hiatus hidey-hole to say hi. I'm skipping IWSG in May, but I'm game to help out after that. :)

Congrats, Rachel!

Juliet Bond said...

It is hard to believe that the challenge is so far into the alphabet! Juliet atCity Muse Country Muse

A Daft Scots Lass said...

The Challenge has been quite a brilliant ride this year, so far, so good.

Brinda said...

I loved Inception!

mooderino said...

I wasn't too impressed by the skiing section at the end of Inception, like he was auditioning for the next Bond movie (might not be a bad idea...)

Alex, Inception is onf my top-ten favorite movies of all-time!! I loved the originality and I loved the execution of the plot. Christopher Nolan is pure genius.

Laura Eno said...

I had to think too much while watching Inception. :/

I can help cohost IWSG in June or July. Just let me know. :)

Tina said...

Alex, you made my...year. THANK YOU. I thought something might be up when my comments had a lot of "stopping by from Alex's" but I'm in your sidebar, I'm in the list of co-hosts...but then I saw your comment Wow. Just wow. I LOVED that movie, and even understood it. Genius sci-fi, and one of those movies I need to watch again to catch all the details...
You're the best. Thanks for your kind words, encourgagement, and general awesomeness! Now to listen to my song!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Misha!

SP, you got it.

Jeremy, I'm sure she appreciates that.

Thanks, Melissa.

Laura, thanks!

Tina, you are most welcome! We couldn't do it without you.

Shell Flower said...

I have yet to see Inception, but it's on my list. It gets made fun of a lot for it's intricate plot.

The Engineer is Tina's husband, right?

Melanie Schulz said...

Thanks for sharing that song- loved it.

kmckendry said...

I love Inception and Tina sounds like a great choice.

Karen Walker said...

Alex, I'm probably too late, but I'd be happy to help you with ISGW.
Karen

Teresa Coltrin said...

Inception's special effects were awesome.

Tina IS a great choice and the song is wonderful, too.

S. L. Hennessy said...

Inception is still one of the best movies to come out in the past few years. Nolan is a genius.

And I'd love to IWSG co-host if you need one.

Heather M. Gardner said...

Excellent post, sir, as usual.

I can't commit to co-host IWSG until maybe June. But, I would love to be able to help then if you still need it.

Heather


jaybird said...

I'm one of Rachel's Betas and I am absolutely OVER THE MOON for her right now! Can't even begin to describe how excited I am to see her big cover reveal *squees*

Alternative Foodie said...

Great movie choice, the Inception. Watched it twice, with son, and both watched every second of it. Wish it had an ending like "Spirited Away" of Gibli's Studio ...

Bob Milne said...

Not a huge fan of Nolan, but I'll gladly start the day with a little Dream Theatre!

Rusty Webb said...

Inception is another great movie. Also, I can't believe we're already up to 'I' - it feels like we should still be at 'E.'

LD Masterson said...

I don't think I'll see Inception but I'll definitely check out Tina's blog.

Jo said...

I was really looking forward to Inception but when I came to watch it I couldn't get on with it. Didn't really understand it I guess.

I love reading Tina's blogs though, especially her current A to Z ones.

Inger said...

Inception is a great film that made my head spin, as I'm sure was Nolan's intent. Thanks for all the work you do on the A to Z.

Amy Jarecki said...

Ooo, Inception looks like a movie I'd love! Good luck with your Goodreads giveaway, I've found they do help bring in readers!

Andrew Leon said...

Well, except that Inception was really just Dreamscape over again with just an added dream layer.

L.G. Smith said...

Wasn't sure I was going to like Inception and then it blew me away. So good.

And Tina is a fellow Colorado girl. :)

Theresa Milstein said...

Ooo, a giveaway!

John Wiswell said...

I did know that about Ariadne. Theseus's conflict with the minotaur seems less heroic the more you know about how he pulled it off.

And good luck with your AMA! I linked it from Twitter.

from John at The Bathroom Monologues

Ella said...

Fan of Inception...now want to watch it again ;D

Off to meet the ever-awesome Tina!
she sounds amazing~

Hope you are surviving this unexpected April Fool heat-85 today!
???

Juliana Haygert said...

Inception is a great movie. And I love the soundtrack - love to write listening to it ;)

Isis Rushdan said...

With the Dark Knight trilogy and Inception, how can a movie buff not love Christopher Nolan?

Congrats, Rachel!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

INCEPTION was highly original. OBLIVION will live up to its title I'm afraid -- but it has Morgan Freeman! You must be starting to get tired from all these daily posts!! :-)

mshatch said...

Loved Inception and everything about it, from the plot to the characters to the fantastic music. Christopher Nolan makes some pretty darn good movies imo.

Nick Wilford said...

Congrats to Tina! Excited for Rachel, too.

baygirl32 said...

Inception - great choice

Hart Johnson said...

Yeah, Inception was great. And Tina's Engineer is her hubby, yeah? Definitely less cryptic than HWMNBMOTI... erm...

Suze said...

I'm gonna guess The Engineer is Tina's husband.

Candilynn Fite said...

Hope you're having a blast with A to Z! Just popped in to say hello. :)

Mina Burrows said...

I didn't like the ending of Inception which may seem ridiculous.

Go Rachel!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Great picks for today!!! As always!
And A to Z is one third of the way through -whoa!

I can help in June for IWSG.

Julie Luek said...

A new blog to check out-- yay! Have a great day, Alex.

Tony Laplume said...

Big fan of Christopher Nolan.

farawayeyes said...

I really like "Inception', but I have to admit that it took me three times through to get all of the subtleties of the story.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Excellent choices. And yes, Tina rocks!

Sign me up to host, Captain! It'd be a honour!

Jack said...

I picked the same one for I. It was a really good movie.

ilima said...

Why am I not surprised you picked Inception? I love love love that movie.

The Desert Rocks said...

Yes, I follow Tina and Life is Good.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

The funnest part about movies like Inception is listening to my house of men debate the believability of the science like a bunch of girlfriends picking apart run way styles.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I'm scrambling to get caught up on A to Z blog visits after the four day weekend away from my computer. I thought it was hard before...

Sarah Ahiers said...

I mean, who ISN'T a fan of Inception? Love that movie

S.K. Anthony said...

BIG fan of Inception and Nolan! Loved it ;)

C. Lee McKenzie said...

Dang! I knew that was John Hurt. Why didn't I remember when it counted? My brain is suffering from chronic AtoZness.

Morgan said...

I read some of Cassa Storm last night---you are very talented, my friend! I'm enjoying it! Great giveaway!

M. J. Joachim said...

Inception is such a good movie, and I couldn't agree with you more regarding Tina! Off to go visit her now. See you in Blog Land!

Michael Offutt, S.F.A. said...

Alex! How can you talk about Inception without inviting people to voice their opinion on the ending? The ending sooo confused me. Is it a dream? Is it real? What is your opinion on it? I've heard both sides and became so hopelessly confused about it that I decided I don't know what it is.

Sandra Almazan said...

Ariadne is a great name for a grounding character.

J.W. Alden said...

I love Inception. I could watch that movie again and again.

Good luck throughout this month, Alex! I decided at the last minute not to do A to Z this year, because I had something that might have ended up taking all of my time for the month and didn't know until last minute if it would come through or not. But I'm enjoying seeing everyone's A to Z posts, and I'll be back next year, I'm sure. :)

Cassie Mae said...

LOVE Incepetion. Brilliant movie.

And I was a lucky beta for Rachel and I'm super excited to see everything happening for her. Squee!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Shell, correct!

Karen, thanks!

SL, thank you.

Heather, I'll need help this summer.

Bob, that works for me!

Rusty, I'm not going back...

Andrew, and much, much better.

Thanks, John!

Ella, by hiding in the AC.

Roland, I'll make it.

Hart, very good!

Suze, you are correct.

Thanks, Tyrean!

Faraway, something new every time you watch it.

Thanks, Joylene.

Elizabeth, that's funny.

Morgan, thank you!!!

Michael, it was real - he saw his kids' faces that time.

JW, next year!

Al Diaz said...

Inception costed me quite a few brain cells to understand but in the end I liked it.
Just met Tina because of the challenge, she sounds pretty cool. Hopefully AFTER the challenge I'll have time to read her more.
Now, *IF* you return my dwarves unscratched I would be able to help you the following months. Up to you, sir ninja captain.

Mark Means said...

I've yet to see Inception, but definitely want to. I've heard a lot of good things about it.

I don't know Tina, but I'll have to take a trip over and check her out.

nutschell said...

the challenge seems to be going smoothly! Inception rocked. I really enjoyed that movie and wouldn't mind watching it again. I bet I'll notice something new every time i watch it :)

Maurice Mitchell said...

Inception is one of those mind-blowing films that stays with you for a long time Alex. Adrian was an awesome character too, and deserves more attention so good job with that blogger highlight. A third? Time flies.

Hildie McQueen said...

A third of the challenge over! Phew!! It's been fun and I've come across some very interesting blogs!

J.L. Campbell said...

Nice cover on Secondary Characters. Yeah for Tina and being such a good organizer.

I've been resisting the IWSG fro a while, thinking it'll be one more thing for my frazzled brain to wrap itself around, but having fallen in with your band of minions for the A-Z, I'll help you with visits. Just gotta go add myself to the list when I'm done here.

rebeccabradleycrime.com said...

Inception is definitely on my list of must see films!

Julie Flanders said...

I'd be happy to help as an IWSG co-host again. I really enjoyed doing it last time. Any month is fine with me, just say the word

Clarissa Draper said...

Awesome movie and blogger!

Robin said...

Inception was a great movie. Loved it.

Congrats to Tina over at Life is Good. I have only been following her blog a short time and have difficulty keeping her people straight. I do love the Nicknames she has given to everyone, though. I think calling her mom The Nutritionist is hilarious. However, that wasn't what you asked. I think The Engineer is her Husband, but I am not sure of that. So many people in that story. I am glad she has a Main Page of people with a Who's Who. I refer to it sometimes when I get people mixed up.

Susan Kane said...

We have watched Inception at least four times. There are so many details we missed on the first or second go around.

Clare said...

Inception is another great movie I need to re-watch at some point!

Alexandra Heep said...

Sweden? Very cool, I'll have to check her out.

Susan Roebuck said...

Well done to Tina - off to visit her now. I can help with IWSG if you like.

Sherry Ellis said...

Tina is awesome!

Chemist Ken said...

Inception was the first, and only, movie my wife suggested we should see again. It was that good.

And I would be happy to help you co-host the IWSG anytime you need it. Just let me know.

Michelle Gregory said...

i never think of Ariadne when i think of Inception, but she really is the grounding force of the group. i mean, without her, they wouldn't have saved Sato(??) at the end. and Dom wouldn't have conquered his demons.

Laura Pauling said...

I see I'm late to the party. I LOVED Inception. The storyline, the drama. I don't always love sci-fi but this one I liked and would watch again!

Bish Denham said...

Inception is a movie I want to see, I've got it on my Netflix list!

Carol Kilgore said...

Can't believe I'm so late getting over here today. Love Rachel's cover!

Mel Chesley said...

Hmm.. not sure if I have seen Inception. Something tells me I have to remedy this. :)

Christine Rains said...

Yay for Tina! And yes, the Ariadne myth is one of my favorites.

Spacerguy said...

Thanks Alex, I haven't seen Inception but it sounds like a real treat! I've got to see it now.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Al, unscratched but dying, is that all right?

Maurice, time flies when you're busy!

Joy, thanks! You won't regret joining the group.

Julie, thanks!

Robin, you are correct!

Ken, thanks!

Michelle, exactly!

M Pax said...

I can help with IWSG if you still need minions.

What a sweet dedication to Tina.

Karen Peterson said...

I love Inception so much.

And since I still believe the entire movie happened inside Leonardo DiCaprio's head, I believe Ariadne is the part of his sub-conscious that is trying to wake him up.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hi, Alex,
Late commenting today. Decided to use my cell. It may take longer, but McDonald's and the library are really getting to me. Everyone seems to be such here and the germs are flying! So it's a health choice... Lol

At least I'm able to post then leave ...

I am still impressed how well you are doing with your theme... Well done!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I loved Inception. Getting to know Tina and she was a good choice for today.

Leovi said...

Yes, Christopher Nolan is a genius, excellent film.

Samantha May said...

Inception. Now there's an awesome movie! That's awesome news for Rachel! The cover is really cool :)

Miranda Hardy said...

I don't recall ever seeing Inception. I will have to remedy that.

The Golden Eagle said...

Inception was a really good movie. (And finally I can say I've seen something you mention in your post!)

A third of the Challenge over . . . whatwaitno, that's got to be impossible. Didn't it just start? :P

Gwen Gardner said...

Tina must be very organized to keep this massive group in order! Thanks Tina!

Helena said...

I was so impressed with Inception, but now I really like the Greek mythology connection to the Ariadne character.

Li said...

Loved Inception - glad I saw it on the big screen. Would love to see it in 3D - the special effects were amazing!

David List said...

Inception is one of about six movies that changed my life. I'm not even sure why. I saw it and instantly wanted to become an engineer. The results are the landscapes, creatures, trinkets and devices I create for my stories.
Excellent song choice, by the way. Your earlier posts have rekindled my interest in Dream Theater!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Mary, thanks!

Thanks, Michael.

Golden, good for you!

David, they are an amazing band.

Rebecca Green Gasper said...

I loved inception. One of those movies/story lines that stick with you. Cheers to Tina! :)

DL Hammons said...

Inception is an awesome film!! Our family debates the ending every time we see it. :)

Kristen Dyrr said...

Awesome choices. Inception is one of my all-time favorite films!

#atozchallenge, Kristen's blog: kristenhead.blogspot.com

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

This is my busiest week and I'm struggling to keep up wit the challenge.
My kids love Inception and are always rewatching it.

klahanie said...

Hey Alex,

Inception, great choice. And Tina, great choice. I have the honoured privilege of interacting with the dear lady.

I'm going to see if we can meet at the halfway point of the alphabet challenge. "M", I wonder.

Allison said...

I love Inception! I gotta watch that again.

Donna Hosie said...

I'm still waiting for someone to explain Inception to me!

Charles Gramlich said...

Nolan is defiintely a writer I enjoy.

Karen Tamara said...

Love the movie Inception. Awesome concept and definitely a mind-bender.

And, if you aren't already swamped with volunteers to help with IWSG just let me know. I'd love to help!!

Scribbles From Jenn said...

I watched Inception, twice, trying to like it. But, alas, I did not.

I can help with IWSG, too. Just say the word.

Lydia Kang said...

It's going by fast! I loved Inception. It was fun and dynamic.

Editors At Work said...

Awesome movie, great song and blogger choices!

Nas

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

DL, the ending is real because he sees the faces of his kids.

Karen and Tamera, thank you!

Jenn, appreciate it.

Julia King said...

I loved Inception. Brilliance. I disliked the end of it because I just didn't know if he was still in dreamstate or not. Ugh! It drove me crazy. Now I want to watch it.

Chuck said...

Inception was so new and unique I loved it from the beginning...and only got more into it as it went along. Can't remember if it left itself open to a sequel but I hope so.

Chuck at Apocalypse Now

Carrie Butler said...

On my way to Tina's blog! :)

reeyah said...

Hi! dropping by from the a-z challenge :D

Inception was a great movie. There've been so many theories about the ending (ever read about Dom's totem not being his at all?) that I don't know which to believe.

michelle said...

I'm late... but still thought I'd swing by...
I'll pop by Tina's place later on...

Writer In Transit

Rick Daley said...

I'm definitely a Nolan fan!

Nickie said...

I waited a while to watch Inception, but I'm glad I finally gave it a chance. Like you said, it's rare to find original science fiction, and it was beautifully executed. I liked the themes of trying to differentiate between fantasy and reality (the end was perfect, imo).

Ciara said...

I loved Inception. I can't wait to read CassaStorm. One of my friends just told me he LOVED the second book even more than the first I'd recommended to him. Thought I'd share. :) He is anxiously waiting for the third.

Pk Hrezo said...

Love love love Inception!! Need to watch it again, actually. Got a crush on Joesph Gordon Levitt. ;)

Birgit said...

I am a day behind! I think Inception was quite inventive and mind blowing in so many ways. It is so cool that you recognize these talented people in blog world. I shall look her up

Debra McKellan said...

I lvoe movies about dreams, and this one is on the TOP!

Debra McKellan said...

love* bah!

Rachel Schieffelbein said...

Alex, you are so amazing! Thank you so much for adding my cover to your ninja news! That was so sweet of you. :)

Jai Joshi said...

Inception is definitely one of my favourite films of the last few years. So brilliant.

Jai

randi lee said...

Totally willing to help IWSG--just let me know what you need help with. And Inception's a great one. One of those Matrix-style movies where I had to watch it twice to truly get it!

Jamie Gibbs said...

Inception - further proof that Christopher Nolan can do no wrong as a film maker.
