also David Gemmel's books have some kind of "pull" on me. view post

Quote: "Edge of Certainty":14xjawy4
Jeez, I just can't stay away from this forum...it's the thread that never dies!! anyway, I keep seeing this reoccuring idea here that being a "good person" has somthing to do with being a Christian....not true...in it's purest form, Christianity should have nothing to do with being a good person. It's simply the belief that there is a God and he had a son...so and a so forth...but whether or not you're a good person has nothing to do with whether or not you get into heaven, according to the Bible anyway. It's simply believing that Jesus is God's son and he died for us so we could live. That's it...I think the ten commandments are a good suggestion, but you can't get into heaven by good acts. I think a lot of Christians fail to realize this as well, and so maybe that's why this idea of if you be good, you'll go to heaven keeps showing up[/quote:14xjawy4]

you just underlined my whole belief for me. thanks for driving the point <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post


How did you get your username? posted 17 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionHow did you get your username? by glaz, Peralogue

i got mine by combining the first couple of letters of my first and last name, thinking which combinations would sound decent. so:

g = first letter of first name
laz = first 3 letters of last name view post


Starring &quot;Insert Actor Here&quot; as Kelhuss! posted 25 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionStarring &quot;Insert Actor Here&quot; as Kelhuss! by glaz, Peralogue

what about Val Kilmer as Kellhus?

Diane Keaton might be able to play esmi. i think she's old enough looking (IMO, she's not too old, anyway), and she may be able to pull off the character.

i agree that the Rock might be able to play Cnauir, although he might be too young.

what about Adrien Brody as Xerius?

what about Liam Neeson as Akka? view post

BOREDOM!!! shoot me or write another book! please! posted 25 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionBOREDOM!!! shoot me or write another book! please! by glaz, Peralogue

im going back to school this year, which means i'll be in debt once again.

i'll still buy the books though. if there's a will, there's a way! view post


Bad, bad book. BAAAD. posted 25 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionBad, bad book. BAAAD. by glaz, Peralogue

Darkwalker on Moonshae.

Salvatore gave high praises for it, so i checked it out. i guess me and him don't have the same opinions on this book

didn't really liked it, although i didn't hate it. just... indifferent to it. finished it just for the sake of finishing. view post


List 'Em - Bands posted 25 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionList 'Em - Bands by glaz, Peralogue

i like jimi hendrix too.

current fave right now? id go with Alter Bridge. view post


Your favourite character? posted 27 March 2006 in The Darkness That Comes BeforeYour favourite character? by glaz, Peralogue

Achamian gets my vote in the poll question. he is definitely, IMO, one of the most &quot;real&quot; characters written to date. meaning, this character can live in our world and not look fictional. his personal traits is the same as that of the general public.

however, my fave definitely (along with Akka, too) is Kellhus. definitely the most interesting character i've read about because what he is and what he represents. view post


Best character posted 27 March 2006 in The Darkness That Comes BeforeBest character by glaz, Peralogue

Kellhus, definitely, for me. he is the true fantasy character.

after TDTCB, he is the most dominating human i've read, if he is indeed human. the most violent, charismatic character. violent in a sense that he can do anything to you, not physically, but because of just what he is.

Akka gets a nod too. view post

kellhus == good guy?? posted 27 March 2006 in The Darkness That Comes Beforekellhus == good guy?? by glaz, Peralogue

if i read this as a manuscript, without expecting and knowing anything, id say kellhus is the bad guy at first glance.

but then again, because of who he is, id still root for him, even if he's the bad guy view post


Best character posted 28 March 2006 in The Darkness That Comes BeforeBest character by glaz, Peralogue

the one moment i loved about akka is in one of his internalizations, when he said that he can just torch this whole place, toast everyone in there, and he would come away unscathed. but, in the end, he didn't, and he just continued waiting.

3 things:

1. this just showed how much power he has if ever he intends to use it.
2. the nature of the human mind. there's just a part in us that wants to come out on top and take the easy in all things.
3. the character's humanity. not everything will go his way, and though he has the power to turn the sides and use it to his advantage, he controls himself. view post

i wish RJ all the best, though.

i must admit, im new in reading the fantasy genre, and RJ and WoT are the main reasons, it being the first ive read. view post

just got the coldfire trilogy from amazon today. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

very much intrigued by what people say to Tarrant. that, and we got the same first name. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> (pretty lame, isn't it?)

gonna read it after PoN... view post


dark tower? posted 29 March 2006 in Literature Discussiondark tower? by glaz, Peralogue

been wanting to finish the whole series for almost a year now, but i got sidetracked by other great fantasy books (what with Erikson, Marint's 4th book, Jordan's 11th, Prince of Nothing, etc) i found out i got no time (and money) to finish the series soon.

hope to finish it sometime this year or the next, or right before Martin's, Jordan's, and Erikson's (and probably Bakker's) next installment. view post


Anyone read American Gods, by Neil Gaiman? posted 29 March 2006 in Literature DiscussionAnyone read American Gods, by Neil Gaiman? by glaz, Peralogue

i've read Neverwhere, Stardust, American Gods, and even Good Omens.

among the 4, i enjoyed Stardust a lot, simply because it had that &quot;idealistic appeal&quot; to readers. it makes me remember what it felt like reading for the first time, being ideal, and having that &quot;fairy-tale ending&quot; every kid dreamt about. view post


Dan Brown posted 29 March 2006 in Literature DiscussionDan Brown by glaz, Peralogue

i've read both, and id say i liked Angels and Demons better.

both novels, IMO, are like a movie in book form. a good, solid, 2-3 hours reading. i'd recommend it to new readers, ar those that really prefer action, but for those veterans of reading good books, i don't think they'd like it. view post


Starring &quot;Insert Actor Here&quot; as Kelhuss! posted 29 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionStarring &quot;Insert Actor Here&quot; as Kelhuss! by glaz, Peralogue

that lady from Unfaithful? whats her name? i forgot. that's the first name i rembered so...

oh, sorry. diane LANE was what i meant. so about that... view post


Starring &quot;Insert Actor Here&quot; as Kelhuss! posted 30 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionStarring &quot;Insert Actor Here&quot; as Kelhuss! by glaz, Peralogue

<!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

sorry about that. i was thinking about the girl from Unfaithful all the way. i knew she was a &quot;diane&quot;

anyway, try looking at the Unfaithful for those that don't know her. i know she's probably older than 30, but i mentioned her simply because of comparisons to Serwe.

when i think of the actresses that are around 30 yrs of age (Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, etc.), i think it won't really show the differences between Esmi and Serwe physically, as stated in the start of book2. view post

Exhaustive Concordance for the PoN series posted 31 March 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionExhaustive Concordance for the PoN series by glaz, Peralogue

yeah, that would be nice and very helpful.

although be sure to put up some spoiler warnings, as some people who heaven't finished the series yet (such as i) might stumble on something...

and if you do decide on making it, i wish you all the best, as making something like this would take up LOTS of time and effort. view post

Favorite books/series posted 01 April 2006 in Literature DiscussionFavorite books/series by glaz, Peralogue

currently, i love Erikson. just pure action.

i also like Gemmel and his &quot;sacrificial heroism&quot; stories.

of course, Martin is on top of my list.

and Bakker. <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post

WoT also has a soft spot in my heart. it's one of the first fantasy series i've read, and i do hope that in would end as well as it started. view post
