    Third Quarter 2019 Reading

    I am on Towers of Midnight in my reread. I don't get people that don't like Egwene. The only thing I don't like about her is her unfortunate attraction to Gawyn Trakand. She even manages that fairly well, though.
  2. I like the looks of the cast. Some are very close to how I pictured them in my head and some aren't but they all look fairly good to me. Madden looks very like how I see Egwene as I read. I have never pictured Perrin as black but I do picture him having very similar facial expressions as many of the pics I find of Rutherford. I always picture Nynaeve as Mariana Atencio. Robins is beautiful(I will admit I picture Nynaeve as being most beautiful for whatever reasons) and will be great I think. I have no mental picture of Mat or Rand, or very vague anyway. The actors cast look fine. The flows should be visible but not all the time. There's too much channeling in this story to show the weaves all the time. I trust the visual minded tv professionals to figure it out. We'll see. Mat's dice in his head will be a bit trickier I think. There should be some way to tell they are rolling because they will stop rolling at pivotal moments. Likely this will get flipped and Mat will experience some dice-like cue at pivotal moments in the show. Again I will leave it to the tv pros to make it happen. I hope this show is really great.
  3. Well I listened to this and then Super Bon Bon right after naturally. Doughty and Everlast should form a theme festival. Now I'm listening to Khruangbin.

    Small, unworthy things: part whatever

    I just ate two Beyond Burgers and they were delicious. Easily the best store bought veggie burger I have ever had.

    That's a cool job. The court reporter at my trial was pretty great. She'd yell if she couldn't understand what was said and the lawyers, or whomever, would stop talking instantly. Also to sit there in the middle with the trial going on takes confidence I likely don't have.

    Video Games: Keanu Re3ves Is Breathtaking

    I like to think of them as one long game instead of three. There are differences for sure, though. Shadow, for example, is FAR less violent than the first two. Great game but different in that way.

    I am definitely eyeballing Uncharted 4. I have heard it is similar to Tomb Raider and Naughty Dog has my trust.

    No I'm in the States and I'm probably forgetting more than a few details. I didn't know the UK didn't use voir dire. We spent almost two days on it.

    That's how I felt about it as well. It was a good experience and I'm glad I got a trial. That said, once was enough and I have no real interest in going back. A coworker was picked for the grand jury and that would be interesting.

    I avoided jury duty for years by just ignoring the summons. I got into some minor trouble with that as they noticed and sent me a threat of a warrant. I called in and they laughed and told me to forget it and they would 'take me off the list'. Next summons I received I went in and landed a three week trial. It was far more interesting than I would have thought. It's much more theatrical than I assumed it would be in real life as opposed to legal/crime fiction. My most recent summons was cancelled about a week after I received it. Theda Baratheon, while you may have to show up on your day, you can get out of being on an actual jury pretty easily during voir dire. You might not even get that far. Many people just show up and read in the jury pool room and then go home at the end of the day. Will your job pay you to go? If not you can claim financial hardship and get out of it I think.

    Yeah I don't know. I didn't play Automata this week on my game day. I might go back to it one day, but I am putting together a long list of games I might go back to one day. We'll see. I played Shadow of the Tomb Raider instead. I am a big fan of the recent trilogy of Tomb Raider games. I have been playing Shadow very slowly and taking lots of breaks as I don't want it to end and then be without any Tomb Raider to play. I only play once, sometimes twice, a week so I can drag a game out for months. I love Tomb Raider. Neil Druckmann wrote Uncharted 4 so maybe I'll play that soon.

    Greatest Band Ever?

    It's an honor just to be considered I would think. Cowtown should be proud. Some of the bands mentioned in this Smash Mouth thread don't even have spiky, frosted hair or wear baggy jeans and short sleeve button down shirts.

    Greatest Band Ever?

    Yet another 'Smash Mouth is the greatest band ever' thread where Papa Roach is completely overlooked? Shame.
