  1. Been rewatching Neon Genesis Evangelion, because I've decided I'm not angry enough. And once I commandeer my brother's Netflix account, I can be even more angry at the new dub and translation!
  2. He's a terrible character. From a mechanic perspective and a story one (his stupid actions directly caused a lot of the problems faced by the Resistance in The Last Jedi. If there was a modicum of realism in that movie, he would have been executed by firing squad at the beginning of the movie).
  3. Fine, I'll say it. Calamity by Brandon Sanderson, in the "this stopped being enjoyable halfway through Firefight" sort of way.
  4. I'm glad you feel that way, because other similar examples (well, one similar example) predicts he will abandon the series forever and write other things! Mwahahaha!
  5. Such things happened all the time with A Dance of Dragons. They were never right. The only way you can be sure is if the author says it's finished. And they would say it, Rothfuss is not really a quiet fellow online. Let's see what he has to say. From April of this year: https://www.tor.com/2019/04/04/patrick-rothfuss-kingkiller-chronicle-book-3-update-moving-forward/ Then there's this bit from the FAQ on his website about book 3: And he has been silent on the matter. The book is not coming out in 2020. You'll be lucky if he starts writing it this year.
  6. I have zero confidence in Doors of Stone coming out at all. I think the idea of publishing it has broken Rothfuss psychologically. Martin is Martin. I think his biggest problem is that he has to write on an old machine. That means anytime he's traveling, there is absolutely no writing getting done.
  7. Their efforts to redesign Sonic and delay the movie will ultimately be putting lipstick on a pig. It'll be a garbage movie with garbage actors and a garbage script. So it'll be a 90s movie
  8. "Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies." - Frederich Nietzsche
  9. Honestly, he should just swoop in here and delete the thread. It's how my curmudgeon self would react!
  10. Smashing Pumpkins
  11. I mean, he is pretty much functionally immortal now. The Westeros nobles have just elected an Eternal God King that sees them when they're sleeping and knows when they're awake!
  12. My opinion on that season of Game of Thrones:
  13. Nobody: Steven Erickson: Star Trek Discovery is awful, and here's a series of extensive, rambling posts about why I'm disappointed in it and what real Star Trek is!
  14. Terminator 2 is a garbage movie.
  15. I'm listening to a whole bunch of Gordon Lightfoot.
