Yo, can you add me to the list?
The entire Vampire Weekend discography. The first album I always loved but I wanted to get into their other two.
It is way more descriptive, totally worth it. The first one felt really close to the show, but A Clash of Kings actually deviates from the show a bit. That really kept me reading and I can only imagine all the things I'm still missing!
A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin, part of the series A Song of Ice and Fire which HBO's Game of Thrones is based on.
I am really loving it so far. I'm really just excited to finally start reading things that haven't already happened in the show.
Thanks! But since I saw the Snopes link I'm just gonna leave that experiment alone. (And not spend money buying a dozen plants)
I did too, but it seems like it's been done.
Well, I'll get back to you guys in two weeks. I'm going to verify this myself.
Edit: After coming back to the thread and seeing the Snopes link. I'm just gonna can my experiment since it's already been done exactly how I was going to do it.
I'd love a discussion about Catch-22, but if we're going McCarthy then I choose The Road.
Well, I was born in Folsom, CA.
And lived there until I was 6.
Then I moved to Fresno, CA, right in the middle of California's Central Valley.
And after I graduated high school I moved to San Luis Obispo, CA to go to college.
The picture below is from the top of Bishop's Peak. It really does look like that in real life and on sunnier days, it's even more breathtaking.
And then this next picture is of the beach just over the hill, Avila Beach. Again, it really does look like this.
And after all this, I am currently living in Fresno again.
Braid reminds me a lot of Super Mario Bros. and I believe it's meant to. Some of the art and level design is obviously a parallel to Mario. The twist is that you can manipulate time. It creates some of the more difficult puzzles I've ever played in a game (the hardest was Space Chem). To keep it interesting, the way you manipulate time changes between each world. Some were easy, but some were incredibly challenging. And to finish it all off, the end of the game was incredible. That's really all I can say about it without giving anything away.
FTL is a rouge-like game where you captain a spaceship. What drew me in was how I hoped I could command all the aspects of my ship in battle like Admiral Adama from Battlestar Galactica and I wasn't far off. What kept me playing was how addicting the game became. There were so many small stories to find through it and so many things to discover that I regularly go back to play it. I have to warn you though, it usually takes a long time for your first win. It's difficult and sometimes unfair, but it is extremely rewarding when you finally win.
