Okay. Proposal. The top 7 (or 9 if we have enough traffic) posters of the PREVIOUS thread each get a vote in naming the next thread.

Which ever title gets the most votes is the one we go with.

So, when it comes time to pick a name for the next thread:

Myself, Billy, Chaz, Kedd, Slewo, Mitch, Capn, J Money and Brio all get a vote in whether or not a title is usable.

Is there any reason to get the 10th anniversary American Gods book that comes out Tuesday as opposed to the regular?

This edition being the preferred will also contain about 12,000 more words than the original release plus a new introduction. The hardcover first edition was 480 pages and this edition will clock in at 544 pages or so.


I have no idea what those 12,000 more words are, though. Does this mean it's some sort of "uncut" version? I'm trying to figure that out.

EDIT:
Yeah it is definitely an "uncut" version. Here is Neil on his blog:

The book tour is for the release in the US of my "preferred text" of AMERICAN GODS. It's the Tenth Anniversary Edition. It will be released on June 21st, a decade after the original was published, and it's about 20,000 words longer than the original, and has a couple of essays in it. If you get the ebook edition, it will also have a 17 minute long interview with me embedded in it, along with bits from the upcoming full cast audiobook.

They started doing construction on my high school in late May. About a week before school got out one of the construction workers hit one of the sprinklers which set off the fire alarm. Everyone goes outside, they usually tell the teachers if it's a drill, my teacher said there wasn't one. We get out there and no one knows what the hell to do, they take roll of all the students in groups and apparently they didn't check the freshman at all so if they look at all the papers it will look like all the freshman MIA.

Yeah, as opposed to, say, a waitress flirting with you to get a better tip--which is harmless.

Though also the level of sexualization in the flirting could make it worse. For instance, if that waitress was at a topless bar, and to get a better tip, she was rubbing her bosoms all in your face, that could be rather frowned upon.

Hawk & Dove - Like the writer, but hate the property, loathe the character, and the art is guaranteed to give me fits.

Suicide Squad - Don't really trust the writer, but stars characters I really like, and is a property I've always enjoyed.

Three more months of this joke. I promise I will never get sick of it.
It's just so damn creepy. Who says something like that?


For their personalities? Agendas? Politics? Or just because you dislike their writing/pencilling style?
Politics and personality mostly. I shy away from styles of some creators, but it wouldn't make me drop or refuse to pick up a book featuring characters I actually enjoy. And sometimes styles can grow on me a bit.


I can't wait till next thread when we can make "what happened to my sweet girl?" jokes.
It's bound to happen.

I will neither confirm nor deny. But I will say there are a good three or four creators that have been slipping further into my "I can't fuck with you" pile.

I guess I'll go buy some comics today. Haven't been to the shop in about 5 or 6 weeks. Maybe longer.

Do you have a pull list they've been holding for you?

I can't even get to the sign in part. One error message after another. Hopefully, it's just a work comp issue and my internets at home work for longer than 5 minutes tonight so I can try it there.
You're not missing much if that helps

Adorable.

It's a big building and they're supposed to do the drill in sections for all the floors instead of having the whole building mobbing through the stairwells at once. But the alarm is heard everywhere each time and a work stoppage happens each time because we either have to leave our floor or accommodate one of the upper floors moving down to our floor. And the first drill wasn't announced so everyone just started filing out.


At least you're getting paid for this nonsense.
Amen for that.

They do one about once a year for the building.

Hey Roman....Never heard....what did you think of "The King's Speech"? Was it better than "The Social Network"?

Hey Roman....Never heard....what did you think of "The King's Speech"? Was it better than "The Social Network"?

My opinion is that I can say nothing negative about The King's Speech. There was not a single aspect of film-making I could complain about. They were all good to very good.

So, while I believe other films it was nominated against were better in SOME aspects, there was not a single film nominated that was as well-put together all around.

So, I'd say it didn't win by being "flashier" than it's rivals, just by being more consistent all over.

Plus Colin Firth is fantastic.

1) I think you are overthinking this.

2) I think they are inferring that only middle-class white folks and above regularly visit the dentist or can afford to anyway.

3) Now I am overthinking this.

I went to the dentist when I was young (maybe 8 years old?), and I remember dentist told my mother "Well, his teeth are yellowish. But that is to be expected of most Filipinos" in a very matter-of-fact way.

On the way home, my mom said, "We are never going to that dentist again."

I only had an inkling that the two things were connected at the time. I think was my first experience of racial... profiling? Prejudice? I don't know what that was, but it's weird.

Colin Firth is fantastic and its nice to see him finally receiving some accolades. I've always enjoyed him in nearly everything I've ever seen him in especially in the film he starred in with Kevin Bacon. "Where the Truth Lies" or something like that. Great movie if you haven't seen it. Plus one of the hottest Alice In Wonderland inspired scenes I've EVER seen.

I have to see "The King's Speech" and its really in my wheelhouse for films. Good to hear its top notch from top to bottom and didn't just win the Oscar by appealing to what the voters lean towards. I knew the cast was first rate and it looks excellent. I'm kicking myself for missing it in theaters. Have to rectify that ;-)

I have seen Where the Truth Lies. Big fan.


Colin Firth was phenomenal in A Single Man, but he was definitely overshadowed by two possibly career performances from Clooney and Bridges. (Although I still argue Clooney should have won. And I say that as someone who generally hates Clooney in films.)

This year, the Oscar really was his to take.

Sort of like Day-Lewis a few years back.
