This is depressing. I recently had a run of bad luck...getting fired from my job...which resulted in the selling of a huge portion of my CD collection to pay my rent. I'll participate anyway... In no real order here are some bands that are important to me. RHCP Ministry Scout Niblett Type O Negative Cat Power Melvins Dalek Pearl Jam Faith No More Mr. Bungle Tomahawk Monster Magnet Kyuss QOTSA RevCo Massive Attack Yeah Yeah Yeahs PJ Harvey More of course but I'll stop here for now. view post

posted 11 May 2006, 12:05 in Off-Topic DiscussionBad, bad book. BAAAD. by Inkdaub, Candidate

Wheel of Time is a tough one for me. I have loved it since the beginning and I've read many...say the first half...four or five times. For awhile it was my favorite current fantasy work. But the series has been wandering too much, maybe meandering is a better word. I love long books and I love long series but this thing could be tightened up a bit I think. Still a fan, though. Goodkind...I tried to like him but I just don't. view post

Ice and Fire is my favorite fantasy work possibly of all time. Only Tolkien stands above but he stands above them all so I don't really count LotR anymore. The character of Jaime Lannister is one of the best characters with the best character arc I have ever read...he goes from evil incarnate to someone I actually find myself liking. The Imp is also an incredible character. A great work over all. I have only begun reading Prince of Nothing so who can say where it'll be when I am finished. I can say it is one of the best I have ever read so far and I don't see why it wouldn't remain so. The other one you guys are talking about I haven't read and have no opinion of. view post


posted 11 May 2006, 13:05 in Literature DiscussionFavorite books/series by Inkdaub, Candidate

I suggest... Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is the best fantasy being written today. William Browning Spencer...read it all. Jonathan Lethem is my favorite author. Michelle West is a great fantasy writer. Robin Hobb...read all her work but the Liveship Traders is my favorite. Jordan as mentioned already. John Connolly...if you like serial killers and crime sort of stuff. Jeffrey Deaver...serial killers/crime procedural John Lescroart...legal thriller sort of stuff. Danielewski's House of Leaves...worth your time. Hmmm... view post


posted 11 May 2006, 13:05 in Literature DiscussionAnyone read American Gods, by Neil Gaiman? by Inkdaub, Candidate

I love Gaiman but I did not like American Gods. I'm not sure why really. Shadow just irritated me for some reason. He seems too passive...I had no respect for him. I don't know. Didn't like the book for whatever reason. view post


posted 11 May 2006, 13:05 in Literature DiscussionMemory, Sorrow, and Thorn by Inkdaub, Candidate

It's okay. The two best things about it are that it inspired Ice and Fire and it's where my name comes from. view post
