This blog isn’t being updated anymore. I haven’t decided if I want to delete it because of the way wordpress does delete. So, for now, it’s just here.

I’m updating this one now.


No Love

It’s obvious this blog is getting no love and I must fix that. Windows Live Writer might help me with this.

Fall With Honor by EE Knight

•November 13, 2008 • Leave a Comment

So, finished it. It’s the latest book (seventh) in the Vampire Earth series by EE Knight. Finally! Why must it be so damn hard (near impossible) to read fun stuff while in mid-semester? Anyways. I enjoyed this. There might have been more internal dialogue type stuff and there should have been more of Smoke. That’s not to say more internal type stuff was bad. But, dammit! The ending that wasn’t an ending…. arg! It makes me wonder why this book was so short. And makes me wonder what the hell is going to happen in the next book.

The next book cannot come out soon enough! (And part of me wonders if this is part of his evil little plan to get more people to buy the next book in hardback! :p) It’s called Winter Duty. Well ok… the title gives me ideas even.

Also, I swear EE Knight plays scrabble. Swear it!

Bullshit (with update)

•November 1, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Are you a gamer? Do you enjoy D&D games in any shape or form? Do you read OOTS? (If you know D&D and don’t read OOTS, you should.) Do you donate to charities? Anyways… if you answered yes to all of these. Don’t contribute to this charity anymore. The just mentioned charity refused the money raised during GenCon 2008 because it was partly raised through the selling of horrible, evil, scary D&D materials.

Simply based on the prevalency of the Internet, video games, computer games, and, well, who knows what else, this is stupid. Especially when it’s money for starving children. This is, bullshit. I can’t hope this charity doesn’t receive less money since they help starving children, but I do have to wonder whether other charities that help starving children deserve the money more. There does definitely seem to be similar charities that work more efficiently.

I got this meme from a famous person, read his books! (Well, I guess he’s not famous but hey, he’s at least a published writer who (in theory) gets asked for his autograph.)

The “maverick” and the “mad dog” or Obama? And for that matter, why do McCain/Palin need nicknames? I have yet to hear a nickname for Obama. Well, aside from “half breed muslin” but that’s not exactly worth mentioning. The BBC is useful for providing news that isn’t bias, at least not the same way….
