Don't agree with canceling it.. heck if they cancel it, they won't make any money, so maybe give a big middle finger to the terrorists and release it for free so everyone can see it.

Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy is on sale on Amazon for about $5 right now.

Serial Ending

Spoiler for Hiden:
I think Adnad did it.  BTW, there was never a phone outside of the Best Buy, but there was one on the vestibule

I'm still torn on Welcome to Night Vale. I'm about 7 or 8 episodes in, and it's rather formulaic and somewhat predictable. However, the musical interludes in each episode are really good and the extremely cynical humor occasionally makes me LOL.

I think it just doesn't lend itself well to binge-listening. I think I'll push through and catch up, then enjoy it as a bi-weekly program as it was clearly meant to be.

Also, being able to 1.5x or double speed podcasts is the greatest thing ever. Obviously some lend themselves to it more than others, but I've been doing some major catch-up at work by putting some on 2X and ripping through them.

Obligatory, what should I read next post.  I'm at a loss as to what to read next. I want to hold off on Abercrombie's new series for now...

Well, I thought Red Country was fine. I liked the returning character a lot, but overall the story was indeed a bit weak. The world in those books is so unfair though.


Yes. I was really excited upon the first hint of that character's return, but it just didn't come together the way that I was hoping.


My favorite part was:  

Spoiler for Hiden:
The fight with Glama Golden.  He's only in the book for a short period of time, but it was enough to already begin relating to him- and that's what Abercrombie does best, write real characters. You get one perspective from one character and then when he switches the focus to the actual character the complexities and layers of who they really are come into view.  It was also neat to hear the voice of a character on the receiving end of the Bloody Nine


Second favorite part was:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Caul Shivers letting Lamb go.  He finally was able to be a better man.

It's cold, and muddy, and full of cheaters and killers, with just a few rays of light. This makes the books a bit exhausting to read sometimes, especially the Heroes.

Abercrombie has become one of my favorite authors for his ability write real characters and have them express real emotions, doubts, and fears.  There are no supermen in his books.  Also, the amazing ways he shifts the focus of the story onto background players yet still keeps it riveting and real.  So many potential characters to explore!

That's why I found the original trilogy the best: the added epicness and grandeur helps offset this bleak world.

I can see that, but there's so much Bayaz and I simply hate him. HATE him.

Command + Space + equation I want to solve.

I just tried that. Doesn't work.

Then I realized that I am on a PC, which doesn't have Spotlight (or Alfred).

Or a Command key.

I'm a Mac guy, so I didn't even think twice about that. I use all sorts of keyboard shortcuts, but I couldn't tell you what 99% of them are, they just come naturally. Outside of gaming and Excel, I have no idea why anyone would use a PC.  Tongue

Closed it out with Red Country.  3/5. Weakest of the 6 books.

Not that anyone who was involved in this thread is around anymore..

I'm still reading your updates smile

Yeah, its still difficult to tell who to believe but with what we've been given still leaning heavily on Jay. But its such a great true crime story to follow in this manner.

Thing I'll miss most at the end of the season though is the little recap music with the piano at the start of each episode. How can that be so catchy for just a little nothing tune?
