  1. In Topic: Erikson has started writing THE GOD IS NOT WILLING (Toblakai Trilogy Book 1)

    To be honest, I'm actually way happier with the concept of following Karsa's impact on the the Malazan world post-tCG than having to follow Karsa himself around for three books in a sort of glorified Conan the Barbarian celebration of slaughter. I like the character, but not so much that a three-book series really appeals that greatly to me. The way Erikson describes his setup sounds way more appealing. So I'm in. There is a lot of scope for exploring return to tribalism. In the Malazan world we have the Teblor, the Tiste Edur, the Wickans, the Seti and many more tribal communities threatened in their existence but at the same time the relevant question whether such tribal societies still have any place in the 'new' world or whether they are over-romanticised concepts. At the same time, we see a return to tribalism in our own world, with borders being closed (USA, UK) and groups polarising in 'us versus them' camps (islamic terrorism, white terrorism, gun debates, East vs West, etc). The reverberations are intriguing to say the least and I hope Erikson can do it justice. "Rejoice!: a knife to the heart" was an interesting glimpse into what Erikson can do with such concepts.
  2. In Topic: Brexit or bremain

    It is the opinion of the British citizens that matters though, and they get fed anti-EU bullshit on a daily basis by the Daily Mail, the Sun and the Telegraph. And you better believe that those papers, as well as a certain group of politicians (specifically the ERG) will have no qualms painting the EU as the bad guy. For Brexiteers that is enough to confirm their ingrained distrust of the EU.
  3. In Topic: Guns, control and culture.

    I used to take those trams every day to uni. Scary shit. They are usually crammed full with students on a Monday morning.

    Shit, they appear to have hit Utrecht (Netherlands) now. Still got a lot of friends and acquaintances living there. Most of them have reported in saying they are fine. Damn. Gunman (or men) are still at large.

    I believe they won't formally request an extension until May has had her flawed deal defeated for a third (!) time (the woman is a true masochist), after which they will probably say they need time to review and put forward an amended proposal that takes into consideration the concerns of the House. Which the EU will probably agree to because they are trying not be made the scapegoat for a crash-out. And then we crash out in June instead, because Parliament will not want to extend past the EU council elections.
