  1. Marvel Netflix - AKA the Second Thread

    Or maybe the arm situation will play out on Netflix...
  2. Wise Man's Fear XI

    For all his success (and I assume wealth) he still seems to live and dress like a college student. As much as I give him crap, it's nice to see someone newly rich take it and build a solid charity. Most celebrities tend to do that in name only (generalizing here of course) but live like red carpet parties are a weekly occurrence.
  3. Wise Man's Fear XI

    Paolini is trying to grow a Rothfuss beard...
  4. Star Wars Rogue One: Now With Less Rouge

    Second chapter of Go Rogue toy video series is up (Robot Chicken like videos with SW toys). Chapter One Chapter Two - "TK-XXL" These remind me so much of my childhood...
  5. The Crescent Moon Kingdoms by Saladin Ahmed

    I read the TofCM years ago and while I loved the concept and Ahmed's angle toward fantasy, I was extremely underwhelmed by the book itself. Both the writing and character development seemed shallow. It's been a while since I've read it, and honestly haven't thought much on it since then, so I don't really have concrete examples to support my position. That said, I'd love for the sequel to turn out to be a compelling addiction. An Arabian-theme fantasy should be right up my alley.
  6. For some reason, I hear the Rogue One piano version of the Star Wars theme in my head now instead of the classic version. As much as I adore the John Williams score, I hope the anthology films follows this trend musically. Homage but different. That said, the soundtrack for the episode films should hold true.
  7. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    He probably doesn't know he's using the Force, assuming it's a "Jedi" thing that can only be taught. Force sensitive?
  8. Wise Man's Fear XI

    More like the waiter asking if you'd like dessert and then disappearing into the kitchen leaving you to wonder if s/he's coming back. Any attempts to ask if there is indeed any dessert coming merely results in other patrons shouting that the waiter is not your bitch or whiney. (luv and kisses to ya Scot)
  9. Star Wars Rebels (All Star Wars Spoilers)

    Those cupcake lightsabers are too big for the figures. You'll break thumbs trying to make them fit. I have one right here at my office compuer from an office birthday cup cake a few years ago.
  10. Rogue One: 2 Rebellious 2 Fail

    Or TMoTO left the browser open without logging out?
  11. Official Blatant but Honest Self Promotion Thread

    The blatant blatantness of the above blatant post is blatantly offensive. I'll expect more out of the blatant author's book when I retrieve it from my mailbox this afternoon. (Not tomorrow as was erroneously reported on that other social media site...)
  12. Boarders Writing A Novel: Volume 14 A Memory of Civility

    Who is/are the point of view characters in the story? Whose eyes are we seeing the torture? Victim, witness, or torturer? What's the result that will impact the character for the rest of the story? Physical and/or psychological? I'd use that as your guide for how much to show and how.
  13. Wise Man's Fear XI

    So, I looked up Rawn. Books 1 and 2 of Exiles came out 1994 and 1997, with the last of the trilogy still MIA? With 6 other books published in the meantime? Wow. I write, so I get writer's block, self doubt, procrastination, etc. It sucks. I know. I've had version of this manuscript on my computer for more years than I really want to admit. But that's just sad. Different thread, but I'm firmly in the camp where if someone presents a product as being part of a series, they should feel morally (not legally) obligated to fulfill that promise. Things get canceled; that's life. But the dragging out and dangling hope is just unprofessional. Apparently Rawn is working on it. Hope she can finish it, for her own sake as much as for her readers. Feel free to dig this up in the distant future if I'm ever published and am throwing out excuses why book X isn't finished yet. People found my 2008 Hodor prediction/joke, so this post should be as easy to find..
  14. Wise Man's Fear XI

    Rothfuss has chosen the Martin path to missing deadlines. Forever will it dominate his destiny. Someone will pop in with (or already have) "Rothfuss is not your bitch" but I think it's just as stupid to apply here as to Martin.
  15. Deadpool v SkullpoopL: Dawn of Spoilers

    I'm not sure I see Kyle as Cable... Maybe if I see a photo where I can barely see his puny feet and where he's wearing clothes with 37 pockets, then I'll believe it.
