How could you NOT think of it like that?

I just didn't notice it. :p

As a Minbari, you should have to turn in your headbone, or at the very least, shave it all the way down. :guffaw:

I'm still in "Changes" (p. 279, 63%). I'm pre-ordered for the "Skin Game" hardback and the Kindle version.

OT: Demonn, are you going to watch Constantine (TV series) when it's on NBC this Fall? Looks interesting, similar in flavor/genre to The Dresden Files, and should be a good companion show for Grimm.

Maybe The Dresden Files would've been better off on NBC.

I don't know, I saw a preview for it while I was trying to watch something on YouTube and my first thought was... "I don't know who that actor is." I've never seen the guy in anything so I wasn't as interested as I probably should have been. I might check it out though.

I think they just did a horrible job with it... I just watched Bitten (another book turned syfy/tv show) on Netflix & I thought it was done very well. I haven't read the books but I found very little to complain about.

Watch, now syfy won't pick it up for a second season.

Demonn August 30th 14 01:42

Re: The Dresden Files
 
So I started watching Dominion on SyFy (first time I've watched anything on there in a LONG time)... watch they'll cancel it.

I'm watching Haven on DVD via Netflix. Currently on Season 2 Disc 4 (which must be all extras.).

I started watching Haven on Instant but then gave up on it at the end of whatever season the cops were gonna hook up but then the chick got kidnapped or went missing.

That's at the end of Season 2, where I am now. Part of why I like it is that Maine~Nova Scotia is one of my favorite areas, picturesque, great seafood, etc.. I like the show and the characters.


I like the far northeast, New Hampshire, too. :D

Re: The Dresden Files
 
Demonn,

I just got The Dresden Files graphic novels "War Cry" #1, #2 and #4, and pre-ordered #5 (all Kindle)

IS THERE A #3 ??? I didn't see it on Amazon.

Demonn September 25th 14 17:16

Re: The Dresden Files
 
I would think there should be a three... it comes between two and four. :p I've never even looked at any of the graphic novels though so I don't know.

KoshN September 25th 14 22:12

Re: The Dresden Files
 
Oops, I thought you were in-the-know on all things Dresden.

KoshN September 26th 14 02:35

Re: The Dresden Files
 
It turns out that the Dresden Files graphic novel "War Cry" is in 6 parts, and is coming out in hardback in December. #1, #2, and #4 are available in Kindle form, with #5 available for pre-order in Kindle form. I asked Amazon why #3 isn't available on Kindle but is available in softback, in an email. Should know in a couple days.

I thought that #3 was just filed wrong. If I'd known that #3 was missing in Kindle form, I'd just have ordered the hardback.

Well this has turned into a long wait... the book better be good.

Two years is nothing. I'm still waiting on "Winds of Winter."

Agreed. Right now, I'm just over halfway through "Cold Days" (Book #14). I keep looking for pre-order availability on "Peace Talks" (Book 16).

Are you going to remember where you left off? Don't spoil anything for me, 'cause I'm still in the middle of Book 14 "Cold Days."

My reading schedule suffered because I spend too much time on Twitter. 🙄🙄🙄

Demonn October 9th 19 17:16

Re: The Dresden Files
 
I remember where I left off... I reread Dresden Files. I'm probably behind on some of his short stories though.

KoshN October 10th 19 12:08

If I ever retired, I'd be able to catch up on my reading.

Hour here, hour there... Weekends... I normally find the time. I like to lay down with a book and just close it when I start to fall asleep, Best Rest Ever. Day napping has become my new hobby on the weekend. I love it.

KoshN October 12th 19 20:03

Re: The Dresden Files
 
I tend to fall asleep to one of my Abbott and Costello or Three Stooges DVDs. The comedy is sort of like comfort food.

I'll have to try your method.

Demonn October 16th 19 17:37

Re: The Dresden Files
 
They put Bob Ross on Netflix too... It's very relaxing to watch AND fall asleep to...after you wake up you can scroll to, or back to the end of the episode to see what he was painting. Very relaxing...

KoshN October 19th 19 00:11

Re: The Dresden Files
 
:thumbsup: , however I dropped Netflix.

Demonn March 5th 20 16:53

Ok... I'm Pre-ordered. I normally don't participate in pre-ordering because then THEY have my money & what do I have? Nothing... It seems that in some instances they've taken it a bit too far or sidestepped the original purpose entirely by being stupid.

For instance... video games. THEY have a set amount of copies coming to the store. You have to pre-order so they know how many copies to send to the store... EVENTUALLY you get the... "Sorry, we only have 15 copies coming to the store," line. If you're taking pre-orders why don't you take my money and get another copy to "come to the store"? The whole purpose of pre-ordering was so they would know how many of whatever they were selling... pre-ordering has ruined video gaming.

I've never experienced a pre-ordering problem, but then again, I haven't played a videogame since 1994. Now, what little leisure time I have is spent watching the TV shows I've recorded and erasing them on the DVD-RW, watching DVDs/Blu-rays, Twitter (politics), watching YouTube videos, walking my dog, and reading on my Kindle,

Sounds like a good plan. :thumbsup:

I'm concurrently working on Salem's Lot, several nonfiction books and the entire Longmire series of books.

On the same theme, me and my girlfriend enjoy the Dresden Files board game a lot. Today though we got beaten by the Death Masks scenario three times in a row. That game can be merciless sometimes.

I guess the Peace Talks don't go well. :p

I'm guessing that there will be some treachery involved and maybe some good ol' Harry "Fuego!" :D

Re: The Dresden Files
 
The description for Battle Ground makes me feel like we're approaching an ending & I hope there's still a little more to go before we get there.

Chapter 3 is up...
