Because I don't classify Dylan as being strictly any genre? <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

I will admit he has made some great songs that are of the Country persuasion (Lay Lady Lay being just one example, all of Nashville Skyline being another, not to mention parts of John Wesley Harding and Time Out of Mind), but he deserves his own genre, yes? <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->

That being said, I have a nice 2002 bootleg of Dylan playing Brown Sugar. Weird, yet good.[/quote:2yx4mwb2]

Dylan is normally classified as Folk Rock much the same as those like Janis Joplin view post

Erich Von Daniken posted 26 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionErich Von Daniken by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

Probably one of the best authors known when it comes to reporting on the bible and the quite infamous "is there life out there" question.

has anyone read Chariots of the Gods or Signs of the Gods?

i have never gotten around to Chariots of the Gods though i found the latter highly interesting. view post


Release Dates posted 26 July 2004 in The Warrior ProphetRelease Dates by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

well at least i have alot of time to finish the first book. im not in any hurry either so oh well.

have you guys searched EBAY for The Warrior Prophet? you can find everything there. ive looked everywhere for the original Heavy Metal movie - the 1981 version for those who have heard of it - and i only just found it there the other day. view post


For a US Reader -- posted 26 July 2004 in The Warrior ProphetFor a US Reader -- by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

Quote: &quot;Rellion&quot;:205mswe3
I recently had the pleasure of reading TDTCB, from Overlook Press, here in the US. I cannot praise Dr. Bakker enough on how good I felt that this book was, and I am glad to have read it.

""""""""I must compliment the cover artist on the dust jacket work, for that's what drew me to the single copy of it on the Barnes and Noble shelf while looking for a new book to add to my library.""""""""""" Opening it up and reading the synopsis and the Author Bio on the back flap, I thought, 'Hmm, a fantasy novel by a Ph.D. in Philosophy. This sounds interesting.' Lo and behold, it was.

What I would like to know (and excuse me if this is a repetitive question, but I did not see the answer for it when looking initially), is when The Warrior Prophet will be available in US release? Living in Texas, it's not easy for me to cross the border, go to a bookstore, and procure my own. Being a US reader, I suppose I'm fairly spoiled by having most novels I've read released (and their subsequent sequels) to the US market first most of the time.

All I know is that after reading the first volume, I am eagerly anticipating reading the second.[/quote:205mswe3]



i agree with you. i was getting annoyed at seeing books with nothing but dragons or ugly looking men in plate mail. a nice oppurtunity to view a book with a dark, though inviting cover. view post


World-building posted 26 July 2004 in Writing TipsWorld-building by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

i usually just create the maps to fit the story. but when i need a little boost to what i may want to write about i just draw on and on. i use flash 5 for my maps when i work on my computer but other than that i draw them on notebook paper or in a sketch pad.

im currently writing a story. its gonna be about a race of druids or something. idk.

i had written about 20 pages for another story but it never went anywhere. maybee ill post it for you to read it you dont mind. its kinda long and i dont know the rules for how long a post can be. view post

What would you say are the must-reads of literature? posted 26 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionWhat would you say are the must-reads of literature? by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

Lord Of The Rings

Shakespeare, though we are forced to read it in school it sorta takes away the importance of it. view post

Quote: &quot;Cu'jara Cinmoi&quot;:1g7ynb6w
I'll listen to pretty much anything, so long as it has some kind of spark, but my tastes run to the heavier end of the spectrum. My fav band of all time is Sabbath. The Melvins come in a close second (at the moment). Some of my other favs include CoC, Monster Magnet, and Tool - which I listen to obsessively whenever I write philosophy.

BTW, 'Orion' has gotta be one of my top ten instrumental favs. MoP rules![/quote:1g7ynb6w]

thats cool. seems we have a similar interest in music. though i too must admit that Sabbath is one of the greatest bands ever.

yes, its quite a song thought in all actuality, i prefer Call of Ktulu more. Orion just has a better "ring" to it. view post

You use flash? That doesn't seem very suited to mapping.[/quote:1s76mley]

well, i use different layers. one for the names, one for the color and one for the outlines. but i also like the whole artistic aspect of adding color and stuff. idk. i hand draw them too. but on the computer i use flash, i can also do animations. plus when i learn how to use the scripting part i will be able to make it so when i click on a particular area it actually shows an even more in depth map of say a town or city or a forest or whatever. view post

Dont be ashamed (Harry Potter) posted 27 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionDont be ashamed (Harry Potter) by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

ive read goodkind... his writing isnt bad in my opinion. at times it gets a little repetitive but for the most part his books include alot of great description and are all great stories within themselves.

as for Hairy Potter ^_^, i enjoyed all those books. they are fun. view post

Gay marriage: for or against its legalization in the US? posted 29 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionGay marriage: for or against its legalization in the US? by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

im for gay marriage.

love is a bond between two people who love each other in every sense, emotionally, sexually, and whatever other ways you can love someone. just because someone loves someone of the same sex doesnt mean that they cant be married.

plus for health reasons its probably much better. view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 29 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

well, right now for my own music i use either an Ibanez bass or a Fender Bass with a 100 watt Ampeg amp. im sure of the model numbers.

when i get a new laptop for college im gonna buy ProTools for recording since thats what most of the professionals use. though im fooling around with simple analog equiptment for my own band. view post

Terry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? posted 01 August 2004 in Literature DiscussionTerry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? by Orion_metalhead, Auditor

I just finished Naked Empire.... it was alright i guess... idk.

but the first two books where fantasy... or so they seemed. after those though it was all Social and Politcal and it got kinda boring... He should do a book more like Wizards First Rule, as that was by far the best one in the whole series.

regardless of what he feels or thinks, which i wouldnt take a shit for, im still gonna read the rest of the books he puts out. i dont want to just read 8 books and then ignore the rest of the series. view post
