    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    I’ve got Lost Legacy and just have not taken time to play it yet.

    NBA Playoffs 2019 - Kawhi So Serious?!

    At this point, I’d say it’s pretty obvious the Warriors are better without KD. Which is pretty amazing that you can say that about perhaps the best player in the NBA. I wonder if that will factor into his decision this summer? Will he feel the need to leave to prove that he can lead a team?
  3. Out of curiosity... what was the spoiler?

    DCEU: Suicidal Insanity

    This reminds me of the scene from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back with Damon and Affleck.

    Game of Star Wars: The Final Hope

    It’s like hypothetical Highlander sequels. It’s the kind of thing people think they remember, but never really happened. The Mandela Effect of films basically.
  6. I haven’t read up on it.... so can anyone explain why the Jets fired the GM a month after the draft?

    NBA Playoffs 2019 - Kawhi So Serious?!

    After being down big early, I’m genuinely surprised the Bucks came back. I was prepared to reiterate my point on the NBA playoffs being cruel to the young.
  8. And old. And a failure. And betrayed.
  9. BSC at Cardottis House of Leisure. Cosca’s point of view: Ahhhh... alas poor Nicomo... how prophetic a line.
  10. You mention this is his second novel, I am unfamiliar with his work. Was the first novel similarly a mash up?

    Davis to the Knicks for pick 3 and Kevin Knox?
  12. Figured I’d take a cue from the Bakker threads and just copy my now two year old intro from the other thread. Amazing it took that long to close out the thread when we used to have three to four active topics going at a time! ts a damn tragedy that we only have one thread dedicated to Joe on the first page, and that one is now locked. So anyways, here's a new thread about the legend himself. (Yes, he really did chase off some ruffians with a banister after already taking a shot to the head.) I presume we can accept spoilers up through Sharp Ends in this topic and for Shattered Sea. Resources unavailable to those of us who discovered Joe back around the release of The Blade Itself that are now free for you to peruse include Wert's very own handy dandy link to a map of The First Law world. And to address the perplexingly persistent question of "What order should I read Abercrombie?" From Wert's link above, here's a timeline of all the stories set in the world of the The First Law: 566 (spring): A Beautiful Bastard 570 (summer): Made a Monster 573 (autumn): Small Kindnesses 574 (autumn): The Fool Jobs 575 (summer): Skipping Town 576 (spring): Hell 576 (summer): Two's Company 576: The Blade Itself 576-77: Before They Are Hanged 577: Last Argument of Kings 579-80: Best Served Cold 580: Wrong Place, Wrong Time 584 (summer): Some Desperado 584 (autumn): Yesterday, Near a Village Called Barden 584: The Heroes 587 (autumn): Three's a Crowd 590 (summer): Freedom! 590: Red Country 592 (spring): Tough Times All Over 605: A Little Hatred (due in 2019) 6??: The Trouble With Peace (due in 2020) 6??: The Beautiful Machine (due in 2021) For reference... The bold titles are the main sequence novels and can (and should) be read in publication/chronological order. All those non-bolded are short stories that are available in Sharp Ends. There you have it. Oh... and we like the Shattered Sea trilogy around here too. Much debate on where they fit on the shelves at your local bookseller, but they generally are a lighter read than TFL. They are completely unrelated to TFL. Proceed

    Welp... so much for New Orleans trading Davis to get Zion. Wow.

    Horace Grant sighting! He shoulda worn his goggles.

    NBA Playoffs 2019 - Kawhi So Serious?!

    Had it solidified for KAT by the lotto show? I know most of the season it had been all about Okafor (how does that look now?!!? ) and it was really just at the end that Towns became the presumptive pick.

    NBA Playoffs 2019 - Kawhi So Serious?!

    Looking forward to seeing how it shakes out. Will Cain is saying that if the Knicks win, they will trade the pick to New Orleans for Anthony Davis. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I love me some Brow... but Zion is a guaranteed draw. But then on the third hand you have all the rumors that are saying Kyrie and KD are a sure thing to NY. If that's the case, then adding the Brow makes the Knicks the odds on favorite to win the East next year IMO. I also love all the speculation today that the Lakers should trade LeBron to Philly for Ben Simmons. I don't know if that's the right place... but I do think they should trade LeBron. Its obvious they aren't going to be able to get pieces around him, so do you really want whiny LeBron for the last few years of his career?

    College Basketball: 2019 Bracket Edition

    I was too. I guess at 66 he wanted to close his career by taking a shot at the top of the mountain. I saw that Pitino was the second place in the betting odds for the new coach at UM. I think it would actually be a decent hire, but I'd be surprised to see it happen. It'll be funny to watch Michigan have a better search and land a better coach than UCLA.
  19. From the General Abercrombie thread: So yup, she's in there.
  20. I went to edit the first post with the titles of the next two books, but formatting seems to be a bitch... anyone know how to do away with that line break in the list??? I also need to alter the timeline in the middle there where it was shown that it was off, but I don't want to fool with it until I know how to do it without messing everything up.
  21. The ability to cause others to empathize with his plight is just one of his many talents...

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    I tend to agree. I have had a bad taste in my mouth for episodic games ever since Blizzard told me that StarCraft 2 would release one per year...
  23. One of my favorite Saturday Night Live moments came right after the Clinton impeachment fizzled out. Daryl Hammond as Clinton walked out to a pedestal, looked at the camera, gave the closed fist thumbs up, bit his lip, and said in a perfect Clinton drawl “I. Am. Bulletproof.” Clinton has nothing on Robert Kraft.

    I know what you are saying with the Penny/Ollie comp... but Hardaway will never have a title.
