  1. Word. While reading TUC, I pictured Bakker as Dirk Diggler (played by Mark Wahlberg) in the last scene of Boogies Nights, on repeat.
  2. So I was perusing this thread awhile back looking for a new scifi author to saddle up on and, despite all the praise I hear from everyone, A Fire Upon the Deep isn't really captivating me the way people here and on Goodreads claim. So if I'm nearing page 200 and I'm finding the storyline (especially the Tines arc) mediocre at best, is it safe to say I'm wasting my time, or is the revelatory shit about to hit the fan??
  3. I was under the impression that the Heron Spear was being used...I don't remember any mention of a Sun Lance. And who was the wielder of the weapon from high on the upright horn? Aurang? That wasn't clear to me, but then again not much is on the first reading of these books!
  4. I'm aware the final book of Ken Scholes' The Psalms of Isaak is coming out soon and am considering giving the series a try. Has anyone here read him? If so, what are your thoughts?
  5. No 311 fans on these forums???
  6. An avid 311 fan of over 20 years, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality sounds of this album. I feel the last five or six albums have been weaker and thought the band was on a downward spiral but this release has me rethinking the equation. It's definitely eclectic and has a decent balance of old and new 311 sounds. Really enjoying "Face in the Wind," "Til the City's on Fire," "Place that the Mind Goes," and "Island Sun." In my estimate it's their best album since Soundsystem, at least. Naturally I have to rank the albums from best to least best: 1. Grassroots 2. Music 3. Blue Album 4. Transistor 5. Soundsystem 6. Mosaic 7. Universal Pulse 8. Stereolithic 9. Evolver 10. Don't Tread on Me 11. From Chaos 12. Uplifter
  7. Zoe's Story by John Scalzi. The YA dialogue is atrocious at times but I'm trying to finish it regardless.
  8. So I'm thinking of tackling the series and am hoping to get some feedback from the Westeros community. Thoughts?
  9. R.I.P. Chris. "Burden in my Hand" brings back so many great high school memories.
  10. I can think of another author who should follow par.
  11. Care to back that eloquent assessment with any supporting evidence?
  12. So it turns the potentially game-changing reveal relating the US elections and Hillary more specifically never happened this morning as planned. Assange now claims the leaks will be publicized at the end of the year. Thoughts???
  13. If this has already been discussed, then my apologies... So assuming the nuke at Dagliash is planted by the Consult, why is it called a Tekne artifact since the Tekne deals with weaponization of biological agents and does not draw from physical science??
