I *heart* "furrner" bots.

let it never be said that I'm xenophobic towards bots of a different ilk. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post

No surprises in my corner, I'm Xray the Enforcer over there, too. (I've had this handle for a decade -- maybe it's time to change it up?) view post

Now Reading... posted 19 May 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow Reading... by Xray the Enforcer, Auditor

Never enjoyed Catcher in the Rye.

Reading Spin by Robert Charles Wilson.

Just finished Grass by Sherri Tepper. What a wasted opportunity. At least the ice-queen Dworkin-feminist protagonist got to have hawt non-penetrative sex with a fox...oh wait. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> view post

Ha.

I had some very good microbrews when I was on assignment in Toronto and Montreal. But it sure as fuck wasn't Coors.

For my money, Fat Tire Ale is one of the greats. Too bad it's damned near impossible to find East of the Mississippi. Thank the gods someone just drove east with 5 cases in their trunk. view post

- Steam Whistle

- Le Fin De Monde
- Anything by Pumphouse Breweries

Those are some of my favourite micro's from Southern Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> [/quote:3oxpzjc5]

good to know. I can find Fin Du Monde pretty easily here in NYC, but those others aren't so prevalent. Happily, there's a store (Bierkraft) in my 'hood whose sole purpose is to import odd beers. I gotta see if they've any of the others from this list.


Anybody who drinks Budweiser, Coors Light, Bud Light, et al should bot be allowed to buy beer... ever. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

(although I gotta agree with Gierra. Glenfiddich is awful swill. Gimme a Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Highland Park or Oban instead.) view post

Mmmm. Rye. (I switch between Old Overholt and Rittenhouse when I'm using it in cocktails. For straight-up drinking...Sazerac 18-year ain't bad.) view post

jrock = japanese rock.

runs the gamut from the 5,6,7,8s (garage) to Guitar Wolf (garage/punk) to Malice Mizer (not gonna even try to describe them)

More &quot;rock&quot; sound than noise (e.g. Merzbow) view post

Hey Sunn:

you heard anything yet by Om (two guys from Sleep)? I haven't gotten the chance yet, but I'm curious ('cos I loved Sleep and High on Fire) view post

We had a thread on this over at westeros a month or two back, and the consensus was &quot;utter shite.&quot; Much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair (but no tugging of braids, mind you) view post

The Hidden Family by Charles Stross.

LOL. Wasn't that the exact question Jeff Van der Meer asked of Scott in that Q&amp;A they did a couple of months ago? Awesome.

Mulched by Mog-Pharau.

I predict a Lazarus-style Re-Awakening once Aspect-Emperor is published. The same happens at the ASOIAF forums...some just go away until the next book comes out.

Aldarion is a nefarious character. Last I heard, he was garroting his way to Buenos Aires. view post

Slightly OT: I have a hate on for our local independent bookseller. They have the most illogical SF/F section ever. Totally random authors...no sense of purpose...and they looked at me blankly when I asked about TTT back in January. They had a copy of TWP on the shelves, yet they had no plans to order TTT? Boo. I had to buy TTT from Barnes and Noble. view post

I think Scott has gone out of his way to avoid giving us any more information on the Scylvendi and their relationship to the Consult. Suggests it's spoiler material.[/quote:1zt75gjx]

Perhaps The Book That Cannot Be Named is, in fact, titled New Earwa Order: Scylvendi Rising. <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> view post

There is also the fact that the glossary is the work of Achamian whose knowledge of the Scylvendi is limited to historical accounts of their involvement in the Apocalypse.[/quote:y3azb19u]
