    solid Rah Digga shout. She had/has skills. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYA77ucO-Bc Also, Invincible, hard to top that... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQQyWCKDRmE
  2. Not meant as props for your bulimic set of posts, but damn, I want your name to be wtih two "o"s at the end.
  3. so much <3 but the car keys and CVS "extra care" tags in your friend's left hand....well, <3
  4. over 8 pages and ONLY ONE MENTION of Xenogears....ffs And also NO MENTION OF FF Tactics, which is a close second for the best thing square ever did.
  5. The martells do have a claim to the main historical event of the books, Rhaegars wife being a one and all, but damn...I can't care about them. They want what they dont have, what dany has, which is what nearly everyone else wants, so spending time on them was quite tedious reading for me. The Greyjoys, as a clan, achieve the same thing, as do all of the clans of people from essos clamoring for danys attention, as well as nearly all of the other main forces, once they get wind of the events in essos. Also, the women of the family fall into the ludicrous archetypes that Martin has formed for nearly all the females in his saga....slut, insane bat shit crazy, pretty and powerless, or "wannabe a man so i can wield power". Again, this doesnt make them special, since just about every other female, besides arya and dany are previous examples. I dont get why we need chapter after chapter on them. Its just so ponderous of a story he gives us. I realize that part of what he is doing is the grim nature of the actual "game",that people will just die or disappear (or re-appear) because he's trying to stay true to the violent nature of his story. At the same time, I get much more enjoyment reading about the course of the various stark children, the events around the wall, anything with tyrion, and what dany does up till book 5 where she sits on her ass and whines. Far too much of that book boils down to answering the question of what Dany will do.
  6. it didnt suck, overall, it just too damn bloated, especially 4 and 5. Its hard to get interested in characters he adds in, when there has been such a history with the existing characters, especially when the only plot device they serve is to do the same thing as a few other characters. Spoilers and whatever, but who gives a damn about the martells, and we get chapter after chapter about them....when they are after the same thing as virtually everyone else.

    Reading

    the film was mediocre. the book, and the rest of the related materials, were quite entertaining.
  8. never had an account, never will though I am pleased that such an entity has been born when I saw people say, after christmas, that they wanted an Iphone instead of a droid with vitriol towards their parents/gift giver. My syntax is horrible, but without facebook idiots we would be left with Jersey Shore reruns?
  9. King has, maybe against his will, turned into a decent author. Hearts in Atlantis in particular was shockingly good, and his recent short story collection, Just After Sunset, had moments of brilliance. Haven't read his newer JFK-themed book, but have heard good things. But yeah, anything prior to about 1995 from King is pretty meh.
  10. Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf - not exactly a book, but easily the best printed thing Ive ever read. Madame Bovary - stylistically impeccable. A Confederacy of Dunces - easy to name drop this, but Ignatius is quite a special character.
  11. surprised that people are actually rating Eyes Wide Shut as even watchable. It was fucking terrible. and yeah 2001 it THE kubrick film. I give credit to The Shining, but that film is equal parts Kubrick, Nicholson and Duvall, if not mostly Nicholson (a fanatastic performance - and before he got jaded and started dialing it in). Stephen King isnt exactly the greatest author, at least not when he published that book, but that is still one of the few films that are better than the novel, imo. Clockwork orange is good, gets terribly dry and preachy in parts sadly. But i dunno how you can watch 2001 and that and consider them even comparable.
  12. so the 4th book is pretty crappy i will probably read the 5th but i am losing interest in tangent characters he inserts and then removes or never pays attention to again
