Douglas Adams was good. Silly, and he really trails off in quality in that quintet as time goes on, though. The detective books don't hold up with time either. Still; he was way ahead of his time.

Terry Pratchett took that style of writing and combined it with actual plots you can follow and characters you give a crap about.

With Pratchett dead, Christopher Moore is my new favorite living author. He has the same style, but does more historical fiction or other weird fantasies and sci-fis that aren't quite as traditional.

Lamb:The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Best Pal is easily one of my top three novels I've read. He didn't a lot of research, it was REALLY funny, and it had a good plot, even if you know how it ends. Apparently, Mary was the original MILF, according to Biff.

His three vampire books, Bite Me, You Suck, and Bloodsucking Fiends, are also quite entertaining.

Oh, yeah, You Suck was unabashedly dark, with vampires that were unquestionably evil, but managed to be hilarious from start to end. Totally recommended. I hadn't read Bite Me and I fear that if I did, I'd be distressed by You Suck (though likely have a better grasp on some of the things), but You Suck strongly resembles a novel form of Lost Boys, only funnier and without the possibility of redemption/healing/freedom.

Wow! Fast!

Also, hey, Orthos: would you mind, terribly, putting links to that other thing that you're working on either somewhere on your personal stats page, or here? I've been busy and my link to it has gotten buried... sorry!

** spoiler omitted **

THANKS! :D


Moore has yet to write a bad novel.

Sacre Bleu takes a while to get good if you're not into art history, though.

I love that it's all a shared universe with just barely tangentially connected characters. Even the angel, Raziel, in Lamb makes an appearance hundreds of years later in...was it the Love Lizard or the sequel to that one? One of the books with the chick who used to do action movies...

Not read the others, though I've wanted to.

So! Re: The North Wind Howls:

Tramontane


Why is that when I want to watch anime, but can't quite decide which one, I seem to always return to Your Lie in April? I love that show, even though it's not really what I'm normally into. I wish I knew.

Stealth valentine's day plans are working well. I am still working PonyCon, but my lazy wife is still in bed and unaware of the fact that I have substituted her old, leaky coffeemaker for the new one she has been coveting! I expect a jubilant text later on today!

Also, I just found out the new fire emblem(s) comes out this month which really pisses me off. I was planning to get them both at the same time for next xmas....

The only plot I can think of when I see "Bite Me" is Dylan Meconis' comic about the French Revolution.

I've not read anything, but I've heard good things. (Also bad things, but those were from people who get upset that someone named 'Jose' rather than 'Joe' has the temerity to want people to read his stuff, so sod them.)

I looked up reviews for it on Amazon of the book we got, which is a new release, and it had 9 reviews with five 5 star, and four 4 star reviews.

So I'm hopeful it will be good, always fun to find good writing. :-)

Hrmph. I dislike some of the other people I share my pastimes with at times. I complain about a concept I really want to do being absolute mechanical garbage stopping me from really doing a character on a custom RP I'm a part of, and people tell me I'm a dirty min-maxer who doesn't care about story. Well, maybe if everything storywise wasn't determined by fighting, I wouldn't have to worry about my mechanics!

Super powers, man. I need them. And good ones, too, not lame-o ones like super strength or flight*.

I'm talkin' reality revision, various mind and foresight powers, and the high-end kinetic energy stuff.

But mostly reality revision. That's basically the one that I mean.

* Don't get me wrong, super strength and/or flight would be pretty sweet. But, ultimately, they're not really the most practical.

I would not want flight, I'm scared of heights, so I would be a mess, psychologically speaking.

Me too, but if it was a pretty controlled flight (like a perfect maneuverability or something) than my fear of heights would be greatly mitigated by the fact that I could, in fact, fly, when needed. :)

Nope, not me, my fear is so great it can't be rationalized with.

Because no one asked, my three biggest fears
1. Heights (except climbing trees)
2. Boats (except canoes)
3. Bridges (especially long bridges and extension bridges).


captain yesterday wrote:

I was actually going to ask, before I got distracted. This is true for me as well. I mean, so long as I'm not slipping.

Also, sometimes, house roofs for some reason, can be just fine. But otherwise... woof.

Not roofs, only trees, which I suspect leads back to a childhood climbing trees so my brother couldn't beat me up, he sucked at climbing trees. :-)

Riding the bus downtown in the morning. Fare inspector gets on and starts checking proof of payment. All the people in the back of the bus run out the rear door like the bus is on fire. Except fare inspectors hunt in packs, and only send one onto the bus. All those people jumping off find more fare inspectors waiting for them. Always amusing to watch.

Telekinesis is all I need.

1.) It includes flight if properly used.
2.) Money is taken care of for life. Roulette pays off an extreme ratio. I move to Vegas and use casinos as an ATM, only going in when I need cash, only winning what I need, and never going to the same casino twice in a month or the following same order, so as not to alert security. Even lose a handful occasionally before walking out with a few grand.
3.) It can be used while being phenomenally lazy. I can grab food from the couch without getting up or whatnot.
4.) I can totally stop crime. Not just big crimes. Cut me off on the highway without using your blinker? When your license plate mysteriously disappears from your car's back, you'll get yours, eventually...

Does anyone else have plans for what you'd do if you got turned into a vampire and how you'd handle it, etc? Talk about it with your spouse? Am I the only one?

Sadly, she'd divorce me. I told her I would only drink criminals and would still love her, but death do us part and all.

She did say she'd help me set the hours up to be light proof and still be best friends, but she's not banging a corpse, and she knows a celibate marraige is a deal breaker for me. Even if I ended up a Rice vamp without the physical capacity, too creepy.

Basically, I would just dress like the most tourist of tourists and walk around bad parts of town wearing LOTS of jewelry, etc. It's like having dinner delivered to you, AND I'm cleaning up crime.

No I'm not one of those let them live types. Try and rob me? I'll turn you into a Capri Sun and squeeze every drop out like a fat kid with a juice box.

And how do you pay the bills? I imagine criminals' guns, knives, clothes, etc, will pawn easily. Never need to work again. Admittedly, much of this part is stolen from Blade, but he's right - this ain't the March of Dimes.

I planned the neighborhoods. I figured out you could rotate pawn shops to avoid suspicion.

The beach at night is nice. Traffic I less. I'm a redhead and skin cancer runs in both sides of my family. I already avoid the sun like the unholy plague that foul creation is. (I KNOW. weird for a Floridian.) I could totally do it.

People say you get lonely, but I barely keep friends for ten years as it is. I don't imagine eighty before meeting more will be a problem.

Plus, I'm REALLY introverted.

I'm positive my wife would follow me into undeath, or at the very least stab me with a stake, which sadly for any vampire, we have plenty of (I may have oversold vampires and werewolves to our young impressionable daughter).

If I was a vampire, I'd do the whole evening dress/cape/crumbling caste/bad Mitteleuropean accent type thing, and I'd do it dashed well, if I do say so myself.
