Well, there's a dude trying to defeat a demon king, but he's a human named Rama.  Hanuman's from some other story.  Still, +1 for remembering something!

As a complete aside, an Indian developer just released the first Indian-developed game for the PS2, called Hanuman: Boy Warrior.  From what I can tell, "atrocious" might be too kind a description for the quality of that game.

I finished the first book this morning.  If you're a fantasy fan, I'd recommend these books.  Ashok Banker's version of them is pretty new, but the basis for the books is something like 5,000 years old.  I definitely saw shades of LotR a bunch of places.

Link didn't work for me. :(

I take a stick that's just under six feet long and I hit a piece of cylindrical rubber with it.

Six feet?  What are you playing - polo?


I read.  A lot.  I have a library of over 3000 books, and I blew through one that was 800 pages long over the past week, around work and sightseeing stuff.

I love listening to music, but haven't been able to really do any singing (my forte) since I started working in a travelling job.

I used to love racquetball... but haven't played much since college.  Oh, and Ultimate Frisbee is awesome - but I haven't played that in a long time either.  Sketch, have you tried Frisbee Golf?  If you're accurate with a frisbee, you might enjoy it.  (Also, have you seen the movie That Thing You Do?  Because the main character's nickname is Sketch, and he's a cool guy.)

Congrats, man.  The change looks good on you. :)

Just wanna say hey, you're lookin' OK mate...)
I <3 Flight of the Conchords

I thought a tree wouldn't be any more off topic than amigurumi, so I thought it would be okay. Sorry.

Oh, so now I'm the troublemaker? ;)

You know, to be fair, the title "community photo thread" could just as easily be interpreted as "photos by the community" as it could "photos of the community..."

OK, I admit it - now I am just trying to stir up trouble.

I'm in India, and wanted to get something local to read.  I picked up a book by a guy named Ashok Banker that was the first in the Ramayana series... then found out that the Ramayana is a (or the) holy book for Hinduism.  So that's cool.  Anyway, as an avid reader of fantasy, I love the way he's written the book, and as an outsider, I think he's done a really good job of explaining most uniquely Indian concepts/words.  I found out that the US edition has a glossary at the end, which might have come in handy from time to time, but I ended up buying all of the books here because they're cheap, they're hardback, and they're crazy bright colors - the first book is like fluorescent pink. :D
1942  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Whats the best DS puzzle game? on: April 17, 2009, 11:38:09 PM
Professor Layton, maybe?

I liked Meteos and Picross quite a bit as well, and Puzzle Quest, but it's a puzzle/rpg.

Oh, and I hear they're working on something called Picross 3D...
1943  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: April 11, 2009, 12:19:01 AM
I started Goodkind's "Wizards First Rule". I have a LOT of reading ahead of me:p

Enjoy it; the first one is the good one. :P

As for me, I'm reading "The Stand" by some hack.  I thought I had read this before, but if I have I've forgotten it completely.

Yeah, I hear the series just devolves into S&M after not too long.  First book's still the only one I've read.

And I <3 The Stand.  I prefer the original version to the extended version, though.  There's one extra scene that kind of scarred me for life...
1944  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Pie. on: April 11, 2009, 12:11:22 AM
I'm a pie man.  Love lots of kinds.  I even have pie for my birthday, rather than cake.

Oh, and I'm more a fan of the thick crust myself, Dincrest... but I do love bread.

Man, if I ever had to eat low carb, I think it'd kill me.
1945  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Cake. on: April 11, 2009, 12:08:17 AM
Doesn't this thread belong in the music forum?  I mean, Cake is one of the coolest bands out there. 

http://www.cakemusic.com/

I saw this thread first and honestly hoped that's what it was about.

Oh, and cheesecake is the best kind of cake.  Unless you get it from Junior's in NYC, where sometimes you get both kinds in the same dessert. :D

Welcome to the fold, Cliocat. :)  I don't think you'll find any shortage of love for FF7 around here, even if it's not all the way at the top of everyone's list.  There are plenty of us grownups here at The Fan (although I don't think anyone actually calls it that), although I must in all fairness admit that I don't see retirement anywhere in my near future. :D

Edit-Random forum note, I don't know if there's anything that can be done about them, but spoiler tags are absolutely hideous in firefox.

Not to threadjack, but seconded.

Oldboy seems to be a love it or hate it kind of show, from what I've read.  People don't seem to say "eh, it was OK."

Oh, forgot to say I watched Yes Man on the plane this weekend.  It wasn't the worst thing I've ever watched, but I did think he bought into the saying yes to everything covenant junk way too easily.  Maybe I'm underestimating the power of peer pressure, but I'm thinking many folks would have said yes in the meeting in front of everyone, then not actually done anything.

Of course, that'd make a pretty crappy movie: "No Man Who Buckled for Five Seconds in Front of a Huge Crowd of Strangers." :)
1949  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: So, XBox 360 or PS3? on: April 08, 2009, 01:42:21 AM
I'm also on 360 and haven't run into any bugs in Fallout 3.
1950  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Puzzle Quest: Galactrix Impressions on: April 08, 2009, 01:40:10 AM
Yep, tried it out and had the exact same feeling.  Not a horrible game or anything, just boring.  And for some reason, I can't get my brain to accommodate the way the pieces slide in.  I understand how it works, but can't think through to really predict what's going to happen when I slide the pieces.
