  1. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    There's a nice little detail you picked-up that should make one early scene in book one slightly sweeter. Book one: Book two: Meaning:
  2. As Greg Brown was saying on Twitter, try John Williams's novel Stoner. I'm reading it. When I'm not reading it, I'm thinking about it. I echo Greg's sentiment about it being a deep well of introspection. If we're going to take some hyperbole, it's been described as something rarer than a great novel: it is a perfect novel. Apparently. I'll let time decide where it fits between "good" and "perfect" in my own head, but I suspect it's at least "great". Which isn't so bad, if you think about it. Read this.

    And with that, IGN has become a parody of my idea of a bad games website.
  4. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    Today I chucked some men in the ocean for the Drowned God and burned others for R'hllor in the hopes that The Winds of Winter comes-out soon, and is as good as I want it to be, because I am so stoked.
  5. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    That's technically a spoiler. Best put the tags!
  6. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    Brimming with stuff like that. You keep chugging along!
  7. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    I'll tell you one of them. Just one of GRRM's great touches.. As for the other thing, you might figure it out before the book's out, although I certainly didn't. But think really hard.
  8. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    Aye. That part. Notice anything about that part? If you don't figure it out, it's OK! I'll let you know when you're done reading.
  9. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    What part, exactly? I think you've passed my favourite ever "hidden" thing. Did you read the chapter entitled "The Prince of [something]*"? * hidden for spoilers
  10. A Song Of Ice And Fire

    I love book two, but it benefits a lot from a quick re-read after going through the rest.
  11. Movie/TV recommendations

    If you've read A Storm of Swords...get excited.
  12. Games giveaway

    I took Sequence, since nobody seemed interested.
  13. Quantum Conundrum

    All hail Kim Swift (and co). This could've worked in Portal, I think.
  14. Games giveaway

    I feel like I ought to buy some games and put some keys up as a "Thank you!"
  15. Games giveaway

    My friend nabbed Sam and Max season 3. He's a lurker around here. I took Cargo. Thanks Twig!
  16. Games giveaway

    (I usually pay something like $30 or thereabouts; it costs me, but it's just my principles.) My credit card died. Alas. Good thing I don't actually need any of this stuff. I should go now.
  17. Games giveaway

    Well, it's a spare copy, sure, I'll take Saints Row: The Third. Ifit'sspareonly.
  18. Games giveaway

    I haven't got Darksiders or Red Faction: Armageddon, but feel weird asking for either of them. So I won't. But you're a swell dude, ysberker.

    That's for British keyboards. Your shift+2 is a double quotation, right?
  20. Life

    Also, regarding the heart surgery, good luck!
  21. Life

    Did you draw that? That's good!
  22. Life

    There is no god. Disturbing and graphic, from Gaza.
  23. Books, books, books...

    I'm reading Music for Chameleons. Some entries are better than others. I wonder if Truman Capote will be remembered in two hundred years, though.
  24. Books, books, books...

    Wasn't that part of some trilogy, or was the "trilogy" related only by theme?
  25. Life

    It might be me, but I've only seen girls doing it. I'm sure it's a thing people do, though.
