    Bakker LVI: the Rectum of Creation

    Cishaurim are salted just like all other sorcerers. And, I don't want to spoil the fun, in fact, I enjoy reading this fan wanking, but you guys put way more thought into this than Bakker himself did.
  2. As expected, another huge drop in ratings. Only 6.1 million viewers for the premiere. This really might be the last season.

    MCU - X

    I thought that was a bit mean. Trailer itself is underwhelming. If that was DC movie trailer, everyone would be talking how crap it is.

    Bakker LV - Nau's Ark

    Would a child with Kellhus' soul also inherit his intelligence or would it be just a regular child? Would he even remember his previous identity? Additionally, it would mean that Kellhus hijacked Akka's son's soul, after previously hijacking his wife.

    Underwhelmed by Tolkien

    You are far from being the only one who feels that way. It was the first fantasy series that I read, and while I was awed by the fact that I was reading The LoTR, they still often felt tedious. Maybe Citizen Kane is a good analogy: undoubtedly brilliant and revolutionary movie for it's time, but modern viewer will probably find it boring and won't understand what's all the fuss is about, because they saw it's best pieces in many other movies made since.

    The Witcher on Netflix.

    Are Witcher books genuinely good? How they stack against ASOIAF, TSA, Kingkiller, First Law? Are they grimdark?

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    You mean, they live in the same body?

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    But he was able to use psukhe and appeared to be quite powerful. He shot 'water' from his palms, and killed 1 or 2 skin spies with it effortlessly.

    Mortal Engines

    There is a trailer for Peter Jackson's new steampunk movie called Mortal Engines. It's based on a book series and, intrigued by the trailer, I'm thinking about reading it. Is anyone here familiar with books?
  10. Gold! I can't help but wonder, how old are you?

    is the WoT series worth reading

    They are the descendants of the Manetheren super-race. I never said that they are all royalties.

    Bakker LIV - Soul Sphincter

    1: It's complicated. 2: You are supposed to think that he killed himself. 3: Yes

    is the WoT series worth reading

    Every WOT character is a Mary/Gary Sue on pair with Kvothe. Males are all handsome and super manly, and every girl is the most powerful, most talented and prettiest ever, ever, ever, E-V-E-R!!! to live. Of course, every one of them also has a super special origin, not to mention super special ability that goes with it. Because how do you go about fighting evil if you are not a royalty or descendant of proud and honorable group that defeated that same evil 2000 years ago? How?

    is the WoT series worth reading

    While I agree with criticism of Sanderson, Mistborn and Stormlight are still miles ahead of the first two and a half WOT books that I managed to cringe through.

    is the WoT series worth reading

    No it is not worth reading. Its an 'old fashion' series full of terrible characters and worst fantasy cliches. Its terribly infantile, almost a parody of a fantasy genre. People may have fond memories about WOT because they read it when they were younger and there was nothing better around, but if you have read anything that came out since (GRRM, Rothfuss, Abercrombie, Bakker, Sanderson), than reading WOT is likely going to be a torture.
