    If PJ adapted that scene from Guards! Guards! with Bard and his buddies I would... well, I'm giving him money anyway. But I would be more happy to do so!

    Heh, it'd be cool wouldn't it? Have you seen Going Postal? It's not a perfect adaptation by any means but Charles Dance makes a wonderful Lord Vetinari!

    I have seen it and because of it I gasped aloud when Charles Dance entered the screen in GOT. While not perfect adaptations the Sky1 productions of Pratchett books have great parts. Marc Warren as Teatime (Hogfather in general is good), David Bradley as Cohen the Barbarian...
    That reminds me, did you know about Troll Bridge, a fan film coming in next February? They are working very professionally, I'm waiting to see how they do the effects.

    Nope, news to me.

    I love Dance's final scenes in Going Postal.

    I still haven't seen the second half myself, but I did enjoy the adaptation, especially as it's one of my favorite books (and in a couple months, Moist returns!)

    The titles of the two comics in my bag this week were "Star Wars" and "The Star Wars". Ironically, I purchased neither.

    This was a major shock. :( I noticed people were spreading the news on Facebook at least an hour or two before it hit anything mainstream like the news, so I thought it was a hoax at first.

    Would you consider this timing tasteless?

    There have been so many Facebook death hoaxes so there is no way I would have believed it if I read it there first.

    I think maybe one person on my feed has mentioned it though. People are still talking about the damn shutdown and Obamacare.

    This may sound like blasphemy but this week I am not feeling the Star Wars vibe I usually have. Amazing.

    It's not blasphemy, it comes and goes.

    On a non-Star Wars personal note: my brother made partner at his law firm! [face_dancing]

    I honestly haven't been all this year. KJA does have his way of killing interest in whatever subject you're reading about. Maybe reading Kenobi soon will jump start it.

    Congrats to him. :)

    EDIT:
    I was in the middle of Kenobi when it started (not that its not a good book).

    Congrats to him! I hear that's a hell of a thing to do -- I couldn't handle the law firm life, myself

    LOL, I had to look that up. I haven't read the X-Wing series yet but it's on my list.

    I have very limited knowledge of it myself but my understanding is that it means a hand in decision-making about what cases the firm takes as well as a bigger salary. He's only 34; I'm feeling pretty good about my gene pool right now.

    That's insane; the youngest partner at my firm is pushing 50.

    PS, anybody know any molecular physicists? I need to talk to someone about force fields.
