  1. Happy Birthday!

    You haven't been here for a while...but your name is by far one of the most memorable I know heh

  2. I was playing Hyrule Warriors for several days in a row, until I realized that what the game was really doing was make me want to replay Twilight Princess, so I am.
  3. I like to pretend SAO ended after episode 14, because the second half of the first season was kinda meh. Especially because of the character who spends the first half of the season being awesome and the second half sitting around waiting to be rescued. This doesn't stop me from watching each new episode of season two, but golly, I wish they had just kept telling more stories inside of Aincraid.
  4. Thanks Peter. That's basically been my argument as well. I don't think he believes that people actually do these things. Whenever I try to say that people actually DO raise their eyebrows, blush, etc, he looks at me like I'm crazy.
  5. I have a roommate whom I have convinced to read most of Brandon's books. He is actually an aspiring writer himself. He's written 3 novels, with plans for more, and has had a story published in BYU's Leading Edge Magazine. So, he has a different way of reading stories than I do. A common comment that I see, and an observation that I've made myself, is that Brandon's prose is more or less invisible. You really don't pay attention to the words he's using. You simply use them as a vehicle to experience the story. However, and I come to my point, he claims that there are a couple of things that force him out of the experience. Specific mannerisms that he finds unlikely. He says that if one character had one of these behaviors, it would be fine, but everyone seems to have these same mannerisms despite cultural or planetary differences. The compiled list: "X raised an eyebrow." A speaker referring to anyone younger than themselves as "Child." Blushing. Snorting. Now, I've never bothered to notice these things, and likely wouldn't care if I did, but it drives him nuts. Anyone else notice things like this? I'd like to know if he's just over-reacting, or if this is something that other's have noticed and care about. Thoughts? I don't want to bash, just curious.
  6. Every time I think about this again, I get a big stupid grin and start squeeing all over again.
  7. As to whether Nightblood can operate on Stormlight, at the midnight release on Monday I asked Brandon what I thought was a purely academic question. ME: Suppose you have a man full of stormlight, and he draws Nightblood. What happens? Brandon: Nightblood would feed off their investiture. I was surprised that he answered it so willingly. Now I guess I know why.
  8. I was browsing facebook, and saw this, quoted from one of my acquaintance's posts. I just about died. The post: So, lucky whoever, I hope you're happy. BOOOOOO.
  9. It's not even Young Adult actually. It's technically classified as "Middle Grade." That said, it is absolutely worth reading. It has everything you love about Brandon's adult novels, and has the bonus of being absolutely hilarious. Read it and rejoice in the reading, and then despair because we're still waiting on that last book.
  10. I would like to announce that when one makes to decision to read one chapter of their book before going to sleep, it is important to make sure that the selected chapter is not Chapter 37 of A Memory of Light.
  11. The problem is that I'm getting way too invested in who hooks up with whom, rather than, you know, making sure they fight properly.
  12. So, after beating Arkham City three times in the past month, it's back to Xenoblade, with some Chrono Trigger thrown in for good measure.
  13. I just played the demo for the new 3DS Fire Emblem. Now I must buy it.
  14. Arkham City on my shiny Wii U.
