Not to slight you man, but I tend to listen more if the ladies think I look better.

I'd be surprised if you said differently. :D

Wow - looks like there's lots more crazy stuff for me to look forward to in the remaining books - thanks, Din!  Ashok Banker is apparently working on writing up the Mahabharata like he did with the Ramayana, so I'll have to keep an eye out for that when it comes out.

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.

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

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

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...

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." :)

Bolt - I actually kinda liked this. Disney CG has improved tremendously. Plus, none of the characters were stupidly annoying, like in most movies aimed at children. There was even a few unexpectedly "sweet" moments.

I'm glad you liked it.  I've mentioned before that the voice of the hamster was done by a very good friend of mine, so although I liked it quite a bit, I think I was kind of biased.  I wondered what people without that bias thought of it. :)

Nope - always saw people selling stuff, but never bought anything myself.  Of course, I was never involved in online play, and I'm pretty sure that made a difference in how I played.
1991  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: March 31, 2009, 08:49:22 AM
Saw "Much Ado About Nothing" (with Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson) and "Little Princess" on Friday night. The former was good, melodramatic Shakespeare fun. The latter was okay. Something I might've liked when I was much, much younger.

I'm a big fan of that movie of Much Ado.  Many great jobs in that show.  Branagh, Thompson, Denzel, Keaton, blah, blah, blah.  We'll just pretend Keanu wasn't in it, though, right?

Reading a YA book called "How to Disappear Completely and Never be Found."  Not too far in, but I really like some of the writing.  My wife recommended it to me, and I think she was right to do so.

That reminds me - I've rewatched Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead over the last week.  I <3 those movies. :)

Esper - just noticed your sig.  It's not a movie, but I've been watching a bunch of Fraggle Rock on DVD lately. :)  Also watching Torchwood, which is really heavy stuff for me.  As I write this, I'm watching an episode of the old Wonder Woman TV show.  Gotta love TV series on DVD.
1995  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: March 02, 2009, 10:13:50 PM
You liked Mirrormask, eh?  I did too, although mostly for the visuals.  One of the only movies I've actually watched on DVD.  It's too visual not to.  You can't just listen to it - you'll miss out on a lot.
