    Any Fantasy recommendations?

    Good to know! Hmmm... I'm not that bothered by hearing that news. Karsa's an interesting one to focus a book on, I found him hit and miss in the main series. Boring and annoying at first, growing to be more interesting as his character and story developed, and then well used towards the end as a force of nature that came along and blew up everyone else's plans. I don't really know what story there is left to tell about him. I'll probably still buy and read it to find out though.

    The Dancer's Lament trilogy takes place in the leadup to Gardens of the Moon so you could read those before the main series. They're shorter and more focused books than the main series with its epic sweep, huge cast, and massive page count. As a lead in to the Malazan world it's not bad, although I think learning about how the Malazan Empire began, and especially Kellanved and Dancer, is best done through the main series. It's like layers being peeled away and you feel like you're constantly learning more and more, discovering for yourself, and figuring out what's going on. I know Gardens especially can be a frustrating book for many people because it makes you work (and then book 2 drops you in a new part of the world and you have to go through all that work again!) I loved it though. Reading the prequels now fleshes out and explains things I'd been curious about all along. I think if I'd read them first I might have not been so drawn into the series as the mystery behind the Malazans and their old ruler just wouldn't have been there. Seriously can't wait for Kellanved's Reach which is due early next year. I've been looking forward to the third part of this trilogy much more than I have for Erikson's final part of his Ascendancy trilogy.

    Worth it though, loved the series and even ICE's extra books expanding the world. His recent trilogy starting with Dancer's Lament have been brilliant.
  4. After that Swansea game would be great thanks!

    K-Pop, J-Pop and C-Pop

    No fun music videos from me I'm afraid. My introduction to K-Pop and K-err music, in general, has been through the soundtracks of various K-Dramas I've got myself hooked on (which probably deserves its own Film&TV folder thread). So here's some of the tunes that have got stuck in my head even after the series has ended. 'A Korean Odyssey' on Netflix - Ghosts, Gods, magic, and romance. Honestly wasn't that great, but I liked this track. From 'Your House Helper' - A chill show about house cleaning and sorting your shit out. 'Suspicious Partner' - Fun and nonsense with a serial killer in the background. 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo' - Athletics students falling in love and being cute. 'While You Were Sleeping' - Seeing dream that come true can really mess with you. I Am Not A Robot - Pretend to be a robot to earn some quick cash, what could possibly go wrong? (Hands down my favourite show)

    Manga

    I just can't get over how consistently good One Piece is.

    Holmes and Watson - Ferrell and Reilly

    It looks ridiculous, stupid, and it made me laugh. I'm gonna watch it.

    The Dragon Prince - Netflix animated series

    Yeah, I know what you mean. It's really annoying.

    NFL and NCAA Football 2018

    Pretty good, just got my draft summary email back and was given a B+ rating with a projected we record of 9-5. Here's my main picks.

    NFL and NCAA Football 2018

    About to take part in my first NFL Fantasy Draft this evening. I've been casually watching for a couple of years now so I'm familiar with most of the big name players I think, but picking out a squad is going to be tough. Any advice or recommendations for players to try and grab would be most helpful!

    Joker origin film - Joaquin Phoenix Confirmed

    He finally had a chance to read the script didn't he.

    From what I remember the author was delayed in writing the second due to both of his parents being diagnosed with cancer. First one who recovered, then the other. While the second was recovering, the first, his mum I think, relapsed and passed away. By the time the second book came out he'd been through years of emotional turmoil and depression. That shows in the finished sequel whichis very dark and grim. It's a very different book and best not read if you want to keep good memories of the characters you enjoyed as they were at the end of Lies.

    Just don't bother with the rest of the series after that.

    Ant-Man and The Wasp - July 2018

    This is already out in Finland, saw it midweek. It's decent, but definitely a shade below Ant-Man. It's not as wildly creative or funny as the first, but it's got some good set-pieces and jokes throughout. I'd say Ant-Man and The Wasp leans heavily on its predecessor for character development because there isn't much here, to be honest. Still worth the price of the ticket and fits into the Marvel Universe well. I like that it deals with the consequences of people's actions, well at least Scott's (as long as you've seen Ant-Man and Civil War). It's definitely a movie for MU fans, and as such, if you're going to see this make sure you stay for the first post-credits scene.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    That's going to be the race for first place in the group now isn't it. Who can score the most goals against Iran and Morocco, the poor bastards.
