    The only reason to watch Top Gun is to better understand the jokes in Hotshots!

    Boris Johnson's plan for putting approx 1 in 5 of we Civil Servants out of a job is not doing my mental state much good, if I'm to be completely honest.

    That's crushingly bad. I'm sorry.

    Crushingly bad is a good descriptor for this horrendous government altogether.

    I still think they should have cast Matt Le Blanc as Paul Atreides so they could get the line "How you Dune?" Into the script and that they didn't is a wasted opportunity

    .... I'm massively digging what Lyria is doing as a result of said scene.

    It has an impact on the characters, it was definitely not gratuitous.

    Yes I see it. I think at the time I had a "oh no. This is too much" reaction. Which is fine and good. And I don't think wanting to stop is a bad thing but fwiw in this case I'm glad to have continued.

    Incidentally I'm really enjoying the discussion around reading, violence and what is too much Vs what works for the story. Very interesting :)

    The death you're talking about does wreck everyone connected to it. I viewed it as a Hetan in Malazan level thing where the brutality of it was the point that separated a resolution of possible reconciliation from the resolution of this ends with one side living.

    Yes, I've been comparing it to that scene in my head and for some reason I never had quite the same kind of visceral reaction with that scene (disturbing and horrifying though it clearly is). I think that a) I was a lot more connected and involved with DoD than I have been with this second trilogy and b ) my own personal circumstances. I have babies. My life revolves around them right now and I think it got to me. Also there's the horrible violence I see IRL which is making me lean more towards slightly less horrific books (loving Wayfarers for that exact reason) at the moment. I dunno. I've moved on anyway and I'm glad I did cos I'm massively digging what Lyria is doing as a result of said scene.

    Bugger, did I miss your birthday this year? Apologies, hope it was good. In a "Hot Fuzz jumping through the air sideways firing two pistols" kind of way. Followed by sweet rumpty.

    Tiste, what you're going through is horrible. My thoughts are with you and I hope it will be over soon.

    Your post in the Good Looking Thread just reminded me of something I think pretty much every time I read of one your posts: Tiste, you are such a nice, sincere and all over great person, from what I can tell, that your existence proves there IS good in the world.
    Yes, that was totally random, but deal with it, it had to be said :D

    Hey Tiste. Just wanted to say I wasn't trying to jump on you in the religion forum, really. I just have a tendency to be all logic and 'wtf are you going on about' in that forum. Cheers. ;)
