Movies and TV / Bye-bye, Doctor Who

Why must they take away all that is good in the world?,,2001320029-2007250185,00.html

Writing Group / Vampire idea help
« on: May 16, 2007, 04:17:14 PM »
I'm hoping this is the right section for this.  I'm coming up with a vampire story and I need a way for vampires to be made that isn't from being fed on by a vampire. I don't like the idea of vampires being born as vampires either.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Books / Convention Fiction
« on: April 13, 2007, 03:29:58 PM »
I'm trying to find fiction about conventions.  Does anyone know anything?  So far I know of Deep Secret by Diana Wynne Jones, We'll Always Have Parrots by Donna Andrews, and Dramacon by Svetlana Chmakova (I probably spelled her last name wrong).

Brandon Sanderson / EUOL vs. Scalzi
« on: March 20, 2007, 04:30:13 PM »
So, EUOL has chopped up watermelon with a sword.  But has he ever done this?

Table-Top Games / Gift Games
« on: December 21, 2006, 05:32:21 PM »
I think this is an okay place for this topic.  I was wondering if anyone had played any of these games and had any comments.  I know that these aren't hard-core games (after all, they're designed to mostly play in under an hour) but I was hoping people would have comments on them anyway.

Brandon Sanderson / If Mistborn was a movie. . . .
« on: November 15, 2006, 12:07:15 AM »
So, if Mistborn was made into a movie, who would be the dream cast? I remember one person mentioning that Summer Glau (River from Firefly) would make a good Vin. Personally, I'd go with Anna Paquin (Roque from X-Men) because I like her better as an actress, though I don't know how she'd be with the physical element of the role.

I have a harder time visualizing actors for the men. Who would make a good Elend? or Khelsier?

Books / Chrono Crusade -- I want spoilers!
« on: July 14, 2006, 12:09:28 PM »
I just finished the Chrono Crusade manga series, and I feel like I really missed something.  Like what the heck was going on at the end.  Could anyone explain?  Or at least point me to a good fan website?

Books / Diana Wynne Jones
« on: June 22, 2005, 10:38:22 PM »
There was a lot of talk about DWJ over in movies, so I thought I'd start a topic here. I love her books, I admit (my sister started reading them to me when I was five years old),  but I'm very interested in hearing other people's opinions.

So I'll start with controversy: the books I dislike by her. These are ones I wouldn't recommend people read. First and foremost: Time of the Ghost.  I think Chimera mentioned that she liked this one. I have no idea why because I actually hated it and I don't hate much. Ouija boards and chicken sacrifices are never my cup of tea. I also disliked Who Got Rid of Angus Flint, Witch's Business, Aunt Maria, and one of the collection of short stories that I can no longer remember the name of.

Does anyone else have thoughts on this?

Webcomics & Free Stuff / Strindberg and Helium
« on: March 01, 2005, 12:39:54 AM »
Have any of you seen this?  It is really odd.

Rants and Stuff / Finger in car door
« on: December 20, 2004, 06:03:32 PM »
Iwant to rant!  I shut my pinky finger in the car door and it hurts (the finger, not the door).  Then I had to spend over an hour at the instacare.  I'm grumpy.  The world is not my burrito.  Typing hurts.

Books / Bone (Stupid, stupid rat creatures)
« on: December 14, 2004, 08:32:47 PM »
My sister found this . . . graphic novel? comic book?  I'm not sure what it qualifies as.  Anyway, it's weird.  Has anyone read it?  I'm half-way through, and I'd be interested in hearing someone else's opinion on it. It's about these cutesy creatures from Boneville (Smiley Bone, Phoney Bone, and Fone Bone) who end up in a weird valley populated by talking animals, killer grandmas, rat creatures, and dragons.  I'm finding it . . . odd.

Everything Else / Murder and Killing in Fiction
« on: September 19, 2004, 04:19:39 PM »
I want to know what people think about murder and killing in fiction.  When do you think it is okay for a good guy character to kill someone else?  I'm wondering because my brother-in-law just had to read a book where the main character hunts down other characters who are "bad" and kills them. Apparently, the justification for killing these other characters was because the author designated them as bad.  Do you think that's justification?  I'm curious.

Movies and TV / Nausicaa
« on: September 13, 2004, 06:07:40 PM »
Okay, Miyazaki's Nausicaa was supposed to be released on August 31st.  Now Amazon claims that it doesn't know the release date.  Does anyone know why Disney is doing this?  And when Nausicaa is supposed to be released?  I tried looking on Disney's website but it was worse than useless.
