Happy Wednesday, and welcome to another evening open thread. I hope your week is going swimmingly, and that you're kicking back and getting ready to ride the post-humpday slide into the weekend.
I finally finished A Dance With Dragons recently, and now I get to share the pain of all George RR Martin fans and wait for eight years (or whatever) for the next book. Presumably to watch a bunch of characters I care about get butchered or die from horrible diseases or something. Fiction!
Here are some conversation starters for ya:
- HBO is making The Dark Tower into a series - Y'know, speaking of Game of Thrones. This should be really good! For the first four seasons, until it turns to shit. Dad-a-chack? Dum-a-chum?
- Murakami's new book is out! - no seriously, it's actually out. And you don't need to have bought it new to get all the characters.
- Police and Occupy Protesters are clashing in Oakland - which is right near me. It's pretty intense. Hope everyone's keeping as safe as possible.
- Here is an old, good track by the Screaming Headless Torsos - because today has been crazy, I'm running out of things to link to, and this band was insaneo.
Go forth and speak your minds! See you on the morrow.
