Re: You read for fun?!

( and lots of sex ) Sign me up. You're such a man. But then, so am I. Just finished a book called Rules by Cynthia Lord. It's a pretty typical award list book (it's one of the books on the voting list for next year's Rebecca Caudill award - http://www.rebeccacaudill.org ). It's about a girl who wri...

Re: Boys photographing girls.

Bow down before Kon, human! Actually, I didn't pay enough attention to Paprika to have an informed opinion, but I can tell you that it is very much in Kon's style of things. See Perfect Blue and Millenium Actress for reference. Also Tokyo Godfathers (which is really amazingly good). DO NOT however w...

Re: You read for fun?!

Well, now that it seems I've killed the thread, I'll talk about Forever Peace by Haldeman. Not really a sequel to Forever War , it's more of a re-examination of some of its ideas. Pretty interesting, although it seemed want to be three different kinds of book. At first it was military sci-fi, then t...

Re: You read for fun?!

I've read a review of Bonk , so I've merely heard that it's a good read. It sounds, by all accounts, to be very interesting. I just finished The Forever War by Joe Haldeman. It's kind of the anti-"Starship Troopers". Philosophically speaking that is, both books are military hard sci-fi. The set up i...

Re: You read for fun?!

You know the drill, rogue sociologist ingratiates himself with crack-dealing gang members. Everybody hustles everyone else, and in the end I think you're supposed to have learned something. I don't really know what I think of it... On the other hand, I've just started reading Freakonomics, and I fin...

Maybe YOU'RE fucking weird. How 'bout them apples?

Just started Gang Leader for a Day. I've decided I need to read something of interest to break up the monotony of children's chapter books that are on award lists.

Re: Really stupid question...

A brown ale or a stout would also be a good starting point. I found more malty, filling beers to be my thing at first. It took a couple of years before I really began to appreciate a truly well hopped beer. Also, never be afraid to try a new beer. There are many different styles and brands of beer. ...

Re: Wii demand satisfaction

Eh, that's when he was actively playing the game seriously. It's also very funny to hear the Korean commentators making up slang for some of the tactics in the early going of the game. I'd laugh and laugh and whose idea was all these sodas anyway? You damn spoiled kids don't appreciate anything! Whe...

Re: Wii demand satisfaction

That's kind of true. Of course, y'all did escape from my various button mashes... eventually.
Ultimately you can't listen to those tourney whiners. Even if button mashing is a "valid strategy", if you're good, you can beat it. Like in Tekken. And in life.
And now you know.
