    I'm a big fan of the Gormenghast books. If only Peake hadn't degraded...

    Chronicles of Amber is pretty good too.

    Finishing up The Sickness Unto Death. Always fun to read philosophy that turns out by chance to be very similar to yours.

    Demilich was amazing live, great to watch Boman play. Wish I could've gotten a shirt but my size was sold out before I even got there.

    Oh ***** there's a Demilich + Hooded Menace concert coming up here... I already can't wait.


    Isn't there the California Death Fest in Oakland in October?
    Yes, they're playing there and then touring elsewhere. Those two and Rites of Thy Degringolade are really the only bands I would care a huge amount about and I live in SD so I'm just going to go to their show here later. That *****'s an 8 hour drive.

    Kind of a shame to miss Rites though, they don't tour much.

    Call me cynical, but I don't have faith in Sony not to abuse gender politics for marketing purposes. A good many companies have done far, far worse than drag important social issues through the mud for marketing purposes. I would not doubt in the least that Sony would actively do something that was ultimately destructive towards social issues, as I feel the entirety of the Ghostbusters controversy has been (As nobody is particularly innocent in the matter). This entire mess just wreaks of marketing ploys and pulling at people's emotions from all sides to get some really good publicity for the film.

    As for when it started, I think you could probably find the beginnings of it when the cast was announced, and it got really bad when the trailer came out. Someone else who paid attention to the whole thing could probably give better details, but I vaguely remember a few people harrumphing about an all-female cast in Ghostbusters. That said, I have found a scant few article from March of last years discussing the controversy. It seems it didn't get nearly as heated, however, until the first trailer rolled out. And then the world just kind of blew up with the trailer. It's always been around, basically, but was pretty muted for most of it.
    Relevant.

    I would also ask anyone who looks at the """""controversy""""" examine who is talking about it and where. Always heavily featured in the interviews of people involved in the project (ones I saw at least), oft mentioned by critics. I saw tons of dislikes on the trailer (which I thought was terrible) but not much hate on women anywhere, really.

    After letting it sit for some time I still feel the new Howls of Ebb is fantastic, their best so far. Must listen for people who like out-there death metal.

    Also apparently a new Desaster came out 2 months ago? It's pretty good as always. Still the most consistent long-running black thrash group.

    Listened to Rituals a few times already earlier, it's pretty good.

    Finally had a Strongbow Cider, and I was impressed. I'm usually not a fan of hard ciders like Angry Orchard, but this has got to be the best I've had as far as ciders go. Give 'er a shot it your in the mood.
    Angry Orchard (at least the few I've tried) is basically just sugary fruit + a bit of alcohol, it's a bit unfair to judge hard cider by it. Don't listen to the people and awards that say it's the best hard cider. I've had a lot of Ace's Joker hard cider recently and it's fantastic stuff, dry to the point that it reminds me somewhat of drier white wines. Good change from overly-saccharine hard ciders like AO.

    so Dragon's Milk from New Holland brewing finally made its way to CA and... damn it's good. Expensive but good. Tastes just like you would expect good bourbon and heavier stout mixed together would.

    If only it wasn't so expensive so I could drink it regularly...

    Also, it's not something that'd make the list, but on a related note... I've seen Space Jam more than 300 times (conservative estimate).

    Can't tell if necro or if this board actually just moves this slowly - either I'd have to amend my answer to include Mad Max: Fury Road
    That will probably become one of mine too, just a bit soon to say.

    I shamelessly stole it from a stranger on WoW, found the way I pronounced it euphonious. Turns out most people pronounce it differently. I haven't really used this one anywhere for years now.

    I tend to prefer names with no meaning or ones most people won't recognize.

    Having a place in the plot is not being a good character. I do think a lot of the FA characters are bad (Kylo is alright though) but they collectively have more personality and development already than everyone in the prequels. Name me one prequel character that possesses more than 1 personality trait at once, one that develops at all aside from Anakin, and one that is characterized by action instead of passive exposition.
