Patrick, sorry I have missed out on your posts. Any diagnosis yet?

No worries. Ally has Pancreatitis , which is basicLly a failure of the pancreas for various reasons. They aren't sure why this happened, but one possibility is her anti-seizure meds

My new rule is that I don't really care what the trolls think or post. Also, my new saying is: Play with trolls, get warts. Trollery is in the eye of the beholder, and I will not debate with trolls just looking to get a reaction. Once you do youve let them win, and many times you end up overreacting and looking like a troll yourself*

*I use 'you' in the general sense, Jeremy, not you specifically. I myself have been ensnared in these pointless threadwars before, and it is maddening

I've often wondered that myself. I read that series and enjoyed it. Hell, I still talk about making sure my "poor, tender head" stays safe. I only own two of the books, but one day I'll go back and purchase the others.

And, of course, I only learned that Lloyd Alexander lived here in Philadelphia AFTER he died! Although maybe that's a good thing. Otherwise, I might have become a stalker.

I knew there was another set of books I needed to get my hands on. That and the Belgariad.
Belgariad, then The Malloreon, then Belgarath the Sorcerer, then Polgara the Sorceress. In that order. ~quickly hides book three of The Malloreon behind my back~

The Elenium and Tamuli are my favorites. Redemption of Althalus, though so similar it's sometimes too boring, is nice for a quick read too.

eh, so-so right now. beautiful weather outside. Had a fever yesterday that took me out completely. Almost done with spring semester. Roommate's girlfriend is up for the weekend. Going to the driving range with a buddy in about an hour. Nearly broke right now after paying rent. Got new car last weekend and plan on turning it into a project car for me. Even though it is a Foxbody and the 4cyl model, a Mustang is a Mustang. Note to self must move to somewhere where ice and snow are not common occurrences during winter. RWD are not fun in winter here in Iowa.

True, but the artform thrives in a new form, so it is all good. Sometime you gotta shutter the buggy whip plant and go buy a Model T ;)

Having studied comics at the university level (it feels weird saying that) with industry professionals, I've seen where the comics 'industry' is going, and it's not really dying at all.

The basic dynamic I've seen is that the mega-companies (Marvel, DC, Image, etc) are going the way of the dinosaur (mainly due to confusing, crappy writing and cluttered art), the medium-sized companies (Dark Horse, Boom, Devil's Due, etc) are getting about the same business, and the independent artists and publishers (King-Cat Comix, Brian Ralph, R. Crumb) and webcomics artists (Rich Burlew, Jeph Jacques, Randall Munroe) are on the upswing.

In addition, the huge companies (and to an extent, the medium-sized ones) are branching out more into the film, merch, and RPG markets and focusing less on actual print comics.

Maybe... I don't have hair to cut, though...

Is it weird that people always think I'm way older or way younger than I actually am? Guesses are always +/- 10 years.

I did not mind it at all. It is just not a great film and with the myriad of great films Disney produced years before and then immediately after, it is lost in the shuffle and treated like a "red-headed step child."

It should be a great movie. With all the crap in LoTR's movies that should and could have been done better, it will have a much longer legacy and Prydain will be forgotten for some time. Which is quite sad.


Fullmetal Alchemist - Brotherhood, Part 5 will be out on July 26, 2011. ~CHEERS~


I know I just should let it lie, but why do people always assume that if you do not agree with them that 1) you have no real reason to think the way that you do 2) you must be a backwoods ignorant 3) They are always right.

Just give me your reasoning and do not expect me to always agree with you nor you with me. Live and let live. The world is a big place.

I didn't get the job in Portland, but I've got a bunch more resumes out there. (Who knows, maybe I don't make that good an impression over the phone.)

I think employers are uneasy about somebody who lives across the country. They might consider it a risk - that maybe I'll back out or something.

Thanks CF, for giving us yet another thread seemingly designed to bring out the trolls. That's exactly why I have stopped using my CDP alias.

Yes. I'm really hoping that someday, a live-action Prydain movie(s) will be made, and that the production crew don't SCREW IT UP.

Granted, I'm also a huge LotR film fan, and I recognize there were good reasons for all the changes they made, but I do wish that Alexander's books were as well-known as Tolkien's.

I read an article awhile back describing the differences between the movie and the books in LoTR. I found myself loathing the movies.
