1  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: April 19, 2014, 01:49:43 PM
I read A Confederacy of Dunces this week, and although I'm not usually big on Pulitzer Prize (or whatever other prize) winners, I really liked this one.  It's almost indescribable, but it's about a very strange, fat man in New Orleans who kind of screws things up for a bunch of people... or does he?  The back of the book talked about it like I'd be laughing my guts out, and although I didn't do that, I did find it amusing several times, and I stayed interested throughout.

Then I read Stephen King's Joyland.  He did a good job with this one, and managed to avoid some of his frequent issues.  It's one of those "true crime" pulp books, but it's still definitely Stephen King.

I still need to see that movie.  I thought the book was pretty enjoyable.

I love the "spacing" on it:

I like money.

Grim, did I ever recommend to you The Elegant Universe?  It's an excellent book about quantum mechanics and string theory, and its strength is that it also makes that crazy material pretty accessible.

Thanks, Perigryn!  A lot of folks put in work on that week's content - Stephen probably more than any of us.  We hope to be recording another episode very soon.  Just working out scheduling issues.

A Crusader made to look like Link.

Apparently, that's a shield you can get.

That makes me want to watch Gattaca again.  It's been forever.

The podcast... insists upon itself.



(Great.  Now they'll never have me on again...)

Thanks, both!

no tribble a'tal

Bravo.

I think they're both fine, but I'm a Trek guy at heart.  I recently stumbled across a DVD collection of all of the alternate reality/altered timeline/altered life episodes from all of the series, and it's reminded me of the stuff I loved about it.  All of the series have their bad episodes - some a higher percentage than others - but they all also have good ones.

This is the DVD set I got.

I finally finished The Hound of the D'Urbervilles.  Great book, full of Moriarty goodness. Now I'm reading Sacre Bleu, by Christopher Moore.  I love everything he writes, so I bought this one even though I'm not really into art.

The new bonuses are pretty interesting, too.  I got some shoulders that make it so picking up gold gives experience.  No idea how much, but still, it's something new!

I created a Clan and a Community called The Emerald Shield, and I put a tag on the Clan of RPGFan.  I can't remember if I had the option of tags on Communities, but if I did, hopefully I put it on there too.  Trying to get back in to verify.  If anyone wants an invite for the clan, let me know!  I think anyone at all can join the Community.

Does seem strange.  I'm updating now, and when I'm done, I'll start an RPGFan clan.  I'll call it The Emerald Shield, like the one on FFXIV.  Let me know if you want in!

Edit: actually, I'm not sure if I should make a Clan or a Community.  Meh, I'll make both.
