  1. His Dark Materials sequel trilogy: The Book of Dust

    Sorry.
  2. His Dark Materials sequel trilogy: The Book of Dust

    Read the trilogy 5 times in a row when I was 12 and I've never loved a book as much as Northern Lights. I've been unwilling to return because it played such a formative role in my adolescence that it's almost became sacred territory in my memory that I don't want to disturb. What with this and the TV series I may have to dip a toe back in. Hopefully I'll be able keep my sanity this time because I'm not as young and impressionable? ETA: Nope I've just read that Lyra will be 20 in the second book i.e. my age. Bollocks. Looks like I'm going back down the rabbit hole.
  3. Video Games: Next Stop... Andromeda

    Sub 50Mbps is a backwater? My friend lives not far from my parents and got fibre a couple of years ago and gets around 20Mbps... This whole conversation is making me sad.

    Why is Hulk wearing armour?

    Meanwhile at my parents' house, 20 miles from London, we get 3 Mbps on a good day.
  6. Video Games: Next Stop... Andromeda

    Playing Stainless Steel mod for Medieval II on very hard/very hard difficulty and you know what? It's actually very hard. Never had any difficulty killing Scotland before, but I lost Normandy to them while committing my forces to crushing their settlements in the north, and then loads of turns later after finally reclaiming Normandy fucking William Wallace turns up with 2 full stacks and takes Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Fortunately Scotland couldn't support that army with the resources from Bruges and they promptly went bankrupt. Wallace himself decided to sit in Edinburgh with 300 men while sending his armies north toward Inverness and Aberdeen, which allowed me to bring up reinforcements and kill him as I took Edinburgh back. I then searched for the army to the north of me and found that it had rebelled against Scotland. Just Aberdeen left to take then and everything will be in order again. Lost Caen to France though.

    That's the one, yes.

    There's actually a really good youtube video on the subject of the score not being memorable. I agree that the Avengers main theme is the only somewhat memorable one. Someone made a really good response video too, but I can't find it.
  9. UK Politics: Trumpy Cat Trumpy Cat Where Have You Been?

    I didn't realise American presidents are typically only invited to state visits a few years into their term. Seems pretty questionable then to invite Trump straight away, even if there wasn't all this public outcry.

    Damn. Rest in Peace.
  11. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    The one May is really keen to believe in.
  12. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    While I agree the arse-licking was unpleasant reading, it's probably not worth being rude and throwing away the special relationship over 4 (or maybe 8, who knows?) years of Trump presidency. Why burn bridges now when we've already set fire to a really important one?
  13. UK Politics: The Overton Defenestration

    I'm on-Trenterhooks. Ugh I'm sorry. I tried.

    Stoke though...
