    I loved The Book of Mormon. I enjoyed it more because I was with my family. The obvious discomfort of my mom (who's quite religious) only made it more entertaining. Call me immature, but "hasa diga eebowai" is the only Broadway musical number I've ever had the serious urge to sing along to.

    Astonishing fact of the day: there are lewd and sordid persons on Reddit who didn't enjoy playing as Haytham.

    Gah. The L-Canon thread is driving me mad.

    Palleus Chuff possessed by Piell is one thing, but I feel like I'm campaigning against Stargate!

    Also -- long-ass bus ride to the GoT exhibit tomorrow (24 hrs from now I should post a pic of myself on the Iron Throne), so I've decided to buy all the comics I haven't read yet and catch up. Thank goodness for DH digital.

    So that means two AOTE, one Wood SW, and the first two DOTJ to see if it captures my interests or not.

    Any comics I'm missing? What else is on going?

    Are you looking specifically for Star Wars comics? I'm new to comics in general, but there have been some interesting titles lately.

    SW comics specifically, yes.

    Ghost Prison. Dark Times. Blood Ties. Maybe Purge.

    Purge? There's a new Purge? Huh. And yeah, am super behind on DT...


    I have absolutely read all of Ghost Prison, though. I had to read that hot off the presses. It was spectatraordinary.

    The new Purge wasn't bad. Wasn't especially memorable, but an entertaining enough read, and only two issues.

    Only other recent thing I can think of is, of course, Legacy.

    Purge: The Tyrant's Fist was the title of the recent two-parter. It wasn't bad- not as good as The Hidden Blade or the original Purge, but better than Seconds to Die.

    So, I'm reading 1776. It's pretty great so far. Anyone else have any opinions on the book?

    I might, if I had any idea what it was.

    Hmm, talking of that I should have my copy of the trade in just under two weeks!

    It's a book about the first year of the American War of Independence. Won a Pulitzer or some such.

    It is a fantastic book. David McCullough is one of my favorite authors, especially his prize winning book John Adams. I like 1776 because it captures every major moment in that incredibly pivotal year- the liberation of Boston, the signing of the Declaration, the British capture of New York, and ultimately the Battle of Trenton. McCullough has a way that makes each historical figure come to life in such an amazing way.

    David McCullough's book on the (American) Civil War is, for me, the definitive story of the Civil War told in a single volume.

    Excellent. Playing AC3 reignited an interest in Early American History, so it's good to know that it is a well-regarded text.

    So I came across something interesting while on the forums, which I highlighted

    [IMG]

    If that's who I think it is, that'd be absolutely hilarious. Reminds me of the days when Denning and Traviss would lurk on the old forums!

    Not even saying he wouldn't do it, but why make an account, let alone with his real name?

    Maybe I'm missing something obvious, or haven't been here long enough, but who is that supposed to be?
