  1. you don't watch game of thrones?!?!?! this makes me <3 you. we stopped watching before the end of the first season. it's not that it's bad- it's just that i know how to read. ricky didn't enjoy it either.

    is it just me or is zach levi an obvious choice to replace jake as the prince in the into the woods movie?


    love the new release of hp art- is it just me or does the dragon totally look like godzilla?

  2. The Kingkiller Chronicles is getting a TV show?! This is (possibly) super exciting news! That is probably my #2 favorite series right now and the last book isn't even out for another year or two. At first I was a little disappointed with Fox acquiring it since a premium channel would be allowed much more leeway censorship wise, but now that I think about it there's really not that much sex or a lot of bloody violence (it's a far cry from GoT). Plus if it goes to FX, well, they get away with a lot of stuff and they have a good track record as far as I'm concerned. I only watch their comedies, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt on a good fantasy series. And if it's terrible, well, I can always reread the books.

  3. We stopped watching after the first episode. I liked the books OK, but I still haven't gotten around to the 5th one. Personally I like a little more fantasy in my fantasy fiction and less politics, but that's my personal opinion. The show just didn't really grab us. Maybe sometime in the distant future we'll revisit it since it seems like just about everyone thinks it's the best thing ever, but we've got a list a mile long of other things to watch first.

  4. So many of these links and news nuggets are awesome, but I'm still mad that not only did I not make it to Comic Con *again* (because I'm a lazy and terrible planner xD) but then Tom Hiddleston shows up and proceeds to be both badass, utterly Loki, and adorable at the same time. Grarrrg.

  6. My cousin, Jason Rohrer, is featured in the new cut of Indie Game: The Movie! You can see him at the 45 second mark. He's a video game making genius...

  7. i like the books- (i haven't read the last one- i was trying to do a reread but i got burnt out halfway through the first) but i'm not insane about them (the way i am about, say, the dark tower series or harry potter). but i completely agree about wanting to their to be more fantasy in the fantasy fic. except for dragons and occasional bit of magic it seems like this could have happened in medieval times.. and that's not fantasy to me. it's dirty. the books, to me, are wordy for wordiness' sake- and the show is nude for nudity's sake. we get it. big words and big boobs.

  12. I just got tired of the HBO-ness of it all.



    I'm not familiar with the role, but Zachary Levi playing a singing prince is always a good idea in my mind. ;)


    And haha, it does!

  13. I didn't know there was a Daria movie coming out. Aubrey Plaza is perfect!

  14. Unfortunately, that was a fake trailer. But she would be perfect, and I'm hoping they do end up making one!
