Re: Steven Erikson - why does the man hates his readers?

But this is getting ridiculous, I've just gotten to Reapers Gale and there's six and a half pages worth of characters, where each character get only one line. And because of the set up of his books, a good deal of characters that are encountered in the earlier books at not present at all. Imagine a...

Re: "Since then, and up to date"

"The first X was discovered in 1970. Since then and up to date, about twenty X have been discovered." This does look alot like most of the small errors I have seen when somebody has learned English as a second language (I do not mean to offend here :( ) and I do agree that it is redundant...

Re: Awesome bands that nobody's heard of

Don't know if it's in here, but Me first and the Gimme Gimme's are a cover band. They take old songs and speed it up while redoing the genre and giving it a very punk feel. Two of my favorites are Somewhere Over The Rainbow and Phantom of The Opera, although I really love their Phantom of the Opera ...

Re: What instrument do you own?

I have an Esteban acoustic guitar that has really not been well taken care of; it's missing three strings and I do not know how to play it :(

I played trumpet way back when, but I have no idea what happened to it, got fed up and walked out on me I suppose :roll:

Re: Composing - a natural ability?

being depressed, heh. That's another thing that's difficult about writing: emotion. Sometimes I start to jot something down when it's on my mind, but I can never get back into that emotion that I was in if I want to continue working on the piece. Happens to me all the time. I fixed that partially b...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

I just make alot of noise :D

I draw most of my inspiration from the late 80's and 90's, so not everyone would consider it "Singing" per se... Although I can also pull off some mean Broadway :P

Re: Composing - a natural ability?

I'm a mostly a writer, so other than vocals I have little instrumental talent, but here's what I've learned in my experience. Music isn't quite the same as drawing, but it is certainly an art form.
