Haha - I forgot about Evolution.  That is a good show!

Watched part of The Fountain again this morning because it happened to be on while I was getting ready for work.  Crazy movie.  I think it helped that I'd seen it before, though.

Stephen King - The Eyes of the Dragon.  This is around the 6th or 7th time I've read this. King really should have done more fantasy/fairy tale stuff.

I agree!  I keep a few extra copies, and when someone says "Ooh, I'd never read Stephen King.  He's all scary demons and stuff," I give them one and say "Here, read this.  I promise it won't be anything like what you're expecting."  (Seriously - my wife picks them up at a local thrift store for 75 cents.)

OK - A Scanner Darkly's over, and it was cool, but bizarre.  Glad I saw it, but it demanded all of my attention, which rarely happens with movies.

What?  Keanu's awesome in that! ;)

Watching a movie with him right now - A Scanner Darkly.

Jennifer Hale is the best!  This game will show up at my house on Monday.  Very excited to start playing it. :D

I'm a nerd, I love comics, like math & physics... but I couldn't make myself like this show.  Sorry.  Probably it's just because I hate sitcoms soooo much.

Wow, Geocaching looks like great fun, and perfect for really learning MotionX on my iPhone. My only question is, when I do a search for caches in my area, how do I narrow it down to only recently found (or unfound) caches? There's like 250 pages of caches, and it doesn't seem to be sorted in any particular order.

When I go to the site and search on a location, it sorts the caches by proximity to the coordinates I gave.  On the left hand side of the results, it should give a distance and a direction from the point you asked for.  Outside of that, I've never actually tried sorting, although I do try to look at whether one's been found recently or not.

Very nice, MGF.

And Moonlight, yeah - for whatever reason, we've never stopped posting in this thread, so you're in the right place. :)
2139  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: October 09, 2009, 10:41:18 AM
Oh my gosh - I have totally wondered how that book would seem to anyone who'd read the original, and how they managed to put in the zombies and still have it somehow go with the original stuff.  If you feel like giving more info, I for one would be interested.


Oh, and to give myself a break from re-reading the Wheel of Time series, I've been re-reading the Alvin Maker series by Orson Scott Card.  He's a grade A nutcase these days, but that's still a great series (and one that started a long time ago), and if he ever writes the last book, I'll totally read it. :)

Eric, I'm gonna have to go with Gamespot on this one.  It got their "punishing difficulty" award, described as: "You might be good enough at games to make your way through this one, but when you visit some message board and start bragging about how it was 'no big deal,' you're just making a fool of yourself."

I'm too lazy to look through them all, but I'd be surprised if there was a single review that didn't say "this game is really hard."

So, I went out geocaching in Boulder this week, and saw a huge deer.  At least a four point... but I wasn't close enough to count exactly, and the picture I took is blurry. :(  But it was cool to see a deer - I don't see any by my house.

I don't think we do - the idea is to cut down on viral marketing and people "endorsing" products when they really just work for the company on the downlow.  Sites like RPGFan are different in my mind.

I mean, raise your hand if you think those of us who write for the site buy all of the games we write about, rather than getting free copies of some of them?  (Yes, just some - I think we all buy/rent some of the games we cover.)

I'm a big fan/patron of small local places (although I'm not a rabid hater of the chains), but the biggest thing I think I do in terms of seeing just what's out there in my community is geocaching.  I think I've talked about it here before, but it's fun and an easy way to get outside and do something free, as well as get some exercise without really having to force yourself.  Someone in my area set up a series of halloween-themed caches that my wife and I plan to track down this weekend.

Anyone who's interested can check out www.geocaching.com for details, but the basics are that you get a GPS-enabled device, download coordinates, then go to those coordinates and search around for the container someone else left there.  Some are small enough you can only fit a paper to sign, others are big enough to hold trinkets for trading.  It's fun to find them, though, and feel like you're kind of in on a secret.  Most of them, you'd walk right by them without ever knowing they were there unless you were on the hunt.

Bought Prinny: CIRBtH and played just the tutorial so far.  Fun, but I wish there hadn't been sales tax to bring it up from $9.99 to $10.64.  Since there's nothing else I'm considering buying on PSN, that means the game cost me $15.

But unlike Microsoft or Nintendo's services you can pay in exact amounts above $5. Did you just add funds before buying? Because if that's why you paid $15 then you should know it's not necessary, just head straight to buy and it'll ask if you want to add, say, $10.64 to your account.

Well that just blows.  I didn't find that option.  Wonder if it's because I bought it directly on my PSP or because I didn't guess to try the right option.  Probably the latter. :)
