InterestsInterests range from Fantasy & SF books to quality films of most genres. Big fan of cars & football ( soccer), Tennis. Love to go to the cinema and take long walks with my dog. Also interested in history & nature ( watching the great BBC documentaries, as well as experiencing it firsthand) & science shows and books.
In my opinion, Love remains an excellent addition to the Cavs, by no means an overrated player. He's been very good so far and very needed by the Cavs as well in light of Irving's frequent absence. That said, big fans of Wiggins here and I'm in agreement with Tywin's comments on him. He is quickly living up to his promise. In other news, another night, another loss for the Rockets and the Clippers. Man oh man. The Wizards and the Bucks are two teams in the East who have doing pretty poorly so far IMO.
No it does not mean that. Great Ordeal comes out in July 2016 ( recently confirmed once again by Overlook), Unholy Consult in 2017, exact month to be determined, as per Scott himself. I only heard hopeful stuff in those Bakker comments. Pretty interesting that we're getting a 200 page encyclopedia attached to the final book, and his comment that that is the only thing that still requires significant work. Work he has time for, considering the 2017 release of TUC. So if he guesses that we're left with 400 pages of story for TUC it does mean there should be significant "meat" of the plot packed into book 3.
Another shit game from United, so business as usual really. Did not deserve more than a point against PSV, and could have lost that game in the 2nd half. Disappointing to see this team under LvG.
Does any team "deserve" to win the EPL this year? Chelsea's gone. City just lost to Juventus and got kicked off the pitch by Liverpool. Arsenal looks nothing like a team of champions. United is collecting draws and meagre wins, extremely unconvincing and playing in a manner which you do not want see rewarded with a title. I'm sort of thinking that Liverpool might be the most attractive team if they continue their flow. Also think Everton has a chance here to finish top 4 for the first time in ages.
Not disagreeing with you one bit. The conquering of the human worlds with different beliefs and the way this is done fully shows we are dealing with a tyrannic evil here. I guess the idea though is that in teh future world of Warhammer, the Imperium is still the best of many bad, bad options. Though you can certainly claim the Emperor goes about it in a way that could be less destructive and genocidal. Agreed on the depth of the setting, obviously, as that is one of the things I really like. And the battle between Horus, The Emperor and Sanguinius confronting first the greater Demon and then Horus are things everyone wants to read. And we may, in 5 years or so.
I don't know, I just thought Griffin had a bad game yesterday and the whole Clippers team has been pretty shit recently. He's been the best Clipper this year and last. Generally I like him and he has clearly improved his game. But like other Clippers he seems unable to bring it when it really matters. I'm sue they will recover from this in the same manner that the Rockets will get better but neither of these two teams looks remotely like contenders. Which, it has to be said, applies to what we've seen of OKC so far as well. But they get Durant back soon.
I was watching LeBron and Kevin Love at work against Atlanta and I have to say, James still looks fantastic. Not a step slower than ever, supremely capable. He just inspires confidence as well. Still the no.1 player when you see him in action IMO.
It happened exactly as you predicted. And that is what I expected as well. Federer playing a fairly poor game and crumbling against Djokovic or Nadal when it really mattered. I'm not sure Federer would have beaten Nadal in the semi if the draw had been a bit different. Kudos to Federer for a great year though. So glad he will be back next year, and Nadal in top shape as well. But these guys need to get a handle on the Djoker because he is eating everyone alive. It's not even really competitive anymore how dominant he is.
This guy Ben Simmons is fantastic. Exhilirating player and should be a clear no.1 pick. Last year there was some more doubt as to who was the best, and as the season progressed Towns passed Okafor and Mudiay as Mudiay had gone abroad. Lakers probably didn't pick the right guy at #2 but that is a different discussion. Ben Simmons though, he has the look of a future star the way Wiggins had as well, and Wiggins is doing very well.
It's called Age of Sigmar. It seems to combine the popularity of the Space Marines with fantasy aspects. The space marines in the new Fantasy world are called Stormcast Eternals. They did end the Warhammer Fantasy era with a series of novels in the last two years though, the End Times series.
