      it happens. :P
      I guess I'll have a small update on what I've been doing/read/watched/played.

      As far as what i've been doing well the answer is really nothing. Well I did go to Houston a while back to watch a soccer game and it was cool.

      I just got a new cat. Got him from Petsmart. He only has one eye so we named him Odin and he is awesome. Though a little over active for my lazy ass.

      A while ago I read Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson and it was good but not great. Well I've now read the second book of the series, Deadhouse Gates, and it was fucking amazing. Very very good. Read now dammit! I'm now on to the third Memories of Ice but have only read the prologue so far.

      I've also read book 12 of the The Wheel of Time and it was superb. I could probably do a whole journal on it but won't. Brandon Sanderson did a great job of helping to finish this series. Can't wait for the last 2. And if you haven't yet read Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy. Good shit.

      As far as games go I've now played The Witcher And Dragon Age: Origins and both were fucking amazing. I'm also CoDMW2 it up though not as much as I used to with the other CoD games. Also FIFA 10 is pretty sick.

      Also, and I can't really believe this myself since i've always been more of a heavy rock/metal/rap lover but I've getting into Indy rock. Silversun Pickups and Death Cab for Cutie tops my list.

      So this time I think I really am going to become more active on here. I could be lying though. Actually I'm probably lying. lol

      So the other day I said how I was reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and how it was awesome. Well I have now finished that book and it was indeed awesome. But its only the first book in a trilogy and the other two aren't out yet and so now I'm wondering what the fuck happens next so it kinda sucks. I hate waiting. This is now the fourth of fifth series I'm reading wondering how it turns out because their not finished. :?

      I also read the second book in the Darth Bane series and it was also quite decent. Can't wait for the third.

      Saw it this afternoon. I thought it was quite good all things considering. I was suprised too since i usually don't like star trek crap but it entertained me pretty well.

      4/5 stars.

      It is a epic fantasy trilogy written by Brandon Sanderson, author of Elantris, also the guy who is finishing the The Wheel of Time series.
      The frist book is the The Final Empire, the second The Well of Ascension, and the third The Hero of Ages.

      With an impressive debut novel under his belt (Elantris), Brandon Sanderson launched the Mistborn trilogy in 2006 with Mistborn: The Final Empire. The primary plot of the novel involves a group of rebels who are trying to overthrow the God-like Lord Ruler of the Final Empire. One might say the story has a caper-like quality to it, but that would be underselling Sanderson’s expertly crafted story far too much. He populates this fantastical, red-skied, ash-falling, mist-rising world with believable characters in a fascinatingly detailed world.

      The novel follows three primary characters, the third character whose presence is felt just as much as the other two, despite sharing very little “on camera†time in the novel. Kelsier holds down the role as primary male protagonist; he is leading the rebellion against the Final Empire. Kelsier is also known as the Survivor, the only person known to return alive from the dreaded prison pits of the Lord Ruler. Though he may seem an outwardly familiar character type, the layers of Kelsier’s character are revealed very nicely over the course of the novel. Upon his escape, Kelsier discovers his Mistborn abilities; he is an allomancer. In Sanderson’s intricately imagined world, Allomancers ingest and burn metals to affect magical/supernatural powers.

      Sanderson’s second focus character is the young street urchin Vin, whose life prior to the novel consisted of roaming the streets with her brother. Upon the opening of The Final Empire, Kelsier invites her to be part of his crew, part of the rebellion. Kelsier sensed something special about the girl, specifically her abilities as an allomancer; he takes it upon himself to train her in the ways of Allomancy. The magic here is thoroughly detailed and well-thought out; one could say the rules dictating its practice are rigid enough to resemble a science. For all the details that inform Sanderson’s magic system, he revealed the inner workings of it slowly. It was an effective, yet simple method for Sanderson to inform, through Kelsier, both Vin and the reader about how the magic works.

      The third character is not seen quite as often as Vin and Kelsier, but his role is just as, if not more important. Each chapter opens with an entry from the diary of the Hero of the Ages, the boy who was prophesized to come into great power, hold a darkness at bay, and rule the world. While the journal entries from the boy who was the Lord Ruler provide insight to the reader of Mistborn, the characters stumble upon the book themselves. Throughout the course of the novel, the characters, specifically Vin, attempt to read into the character of the person who wrote the journal. She tries to make sense of how such a hopeful youth with so much promise and eagerness to do good, a young man who doubts himself, could become the hated dictator.

      taken from here

      More info here and prologue and first few chapters of the first book here.

      Very good stuff in my opinion. Nice characters, nice story, and I really like the ending of the final book. Hope you guys pick up a copy of the first book and enjoy.

      Also if you do like this series, in June he is releasing a book called Warbreaker which he has actually released for free online,along with first drafts, his editing and revisions, the whole process, which you can find here. Haven't read it myself yet as I'm waiting to pick it up in bookstores.

      I think it's good because if you have a bunch of 12 year old retards on your team, then you don't suffer for it. But I like what H3 does because it keeps it challenging and bringing you back for more.

      I have 48 watchers and average about 4-5 comments on each. *shrug* It's just how the site works. Some random person puts you on watch and then forgets about you, the site, or whatever. Rinse, and repeat.

      I'm not having that many problems, except with the the Flood. I fucking hate the Flood. So goddamn much.

      after you call, about 5 days to get the box then after you send it out, about a month or so to get it back.

      Same with my friends, it would work and then freeze and then it would do the RED lights.

      Then after we got the Halo 3 Beta downloaded, it died for good. Twas a sad moment.

      well, my friend got a launch one and it died and his warranty was out and then Bill Gates extended the warranty by 3 years on all red ring xbox's (i think)

      So he sent it in for free.

      I'd give the number a call.
