  • In What do foreigners hate about USA?

    Their egocentricity.

  • In Game of Thrones’ ending (spoilers)

    tl;dr the writing sucked ass and character arcs weren't followed through with. They brute-forced the characters' destinations with little fanfare and added/changed things that weren't in the spirit of the books or even the previous seasons. This was a rush job, likely more to do with Disney poaching the lead duo to direct a new Star Wars trilogy, and it shows.

    Also "best episode of the entire season" is hardly a ringing endorsement seeing how few episodes it had, and how shit they were in the wider context of the series.

    As for Bran (not Brad, silly) becoming king... The conclusion came from G.R.R. Martin. The way he becomes king and the massive lack of buildup and development in that direction, though, came entirely from D&D, not Martin. They knew the end point, but not the path, and failed to lay out a satisfying road for their characters to walk (or... not walk). So that "unexpectedness" isn't something on the author (Martin) but a result of poor planning and writing on the series writers. It is "unexpected" because they jumped to conclusions, not because it was intended to be.

    I've been working my way through the Hellboy Board Game's miniatures the last two weeks, bit by bit. Finally got a handle on almost all the different model types and can see the finish line on most of them.

    WIP shots:

    And finished Giant Frogmonster & Sadu-Hem:

    Got some stuff I haven't made any recent photos of (including the main agents, actually), and I haven't touched a single live Nazi yet (and I got 30 of those, in five different types, plus characters and a turkey...), but those are expansion material anyway. Right now I should be focusing on finishing the core agents and all 20 frogmen, but I can't be bothered to paint more green this week.

  • In Best Cabs and Taxi services in Jaipur at Cheapest Price

  • In What are you reading?

    So I just finished my run of The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman after reading it on and off since January, and was quite pleased but also mightily surprised it ended when it did. What a strange novel.

    Besides that, I also finished Titandeath and The Buried Dagger, the final two Horus Heresy novels before the Siege of Terra begins in earnest this month (or last month, in the limited edition release that sold out within minutes...). I'm ready, John French! Bring it. The walls are manned, the defensive cannons loaded....

    But since that's not quite out yet for me, I'm still making my way through I Want to Eat Your Pancreas, which I had put on hold for the time being, and Maledictions, the first Warhammer Horror anthology - which is also quite pretty in print, with red-painted edges.

    But DC being DC, I'm in need of a classic to add to the reading pile. Currently contemplating Crime and Punishment, or maybe another Conrad story. We'll see.

    But most importantly:

    The Coil turns and twists once more. Peter Fehervari's 3rd novel is finally on the market and I couldn't be happier, even though I only managed to catch peeks at the prologue so far. This one's pulling together A LOT of strings from his other works, while opening even more questions, so damn me I am excited.

  • In Post what you're listening to.

    not a video link, or embed, just a tinypic image

    I didn't even know people still used Tinypic to begin with. They never should have in the first place!

  • In What’s the weirdest thing you have eaten as a kid?
