OOH! OOH! I know this one! XD

Seriously though, I overloaded on Dune for a high school paper that should have gotten me a spot in the high tier English class. That is until some douche of a teacher in the Eng department said I plagiarized the paper due to like a half of a line I wrote that was similar sounding to an internet paper.

I can't believe they're seriously thinking of making ANOTHER Dune movie too.  I mean, the first one (awesome as I find it) wasn't really good because the book is so damn big and informative that it doesn't translate well to a single movie.  I thought the Sci-Fi (SyFy) Series did a good job of it.

Also, gonna read Lewis Black's Nothing Sacred.

I'm starting on Coruscant Nights II: Streets of Shadows tonight.  Last night, I had finished Prisoner of the Daleks.  That brings my summer reading to about five or six books now.

I've read thus far...

A Princess of Mars
Coruscant Nights I: Jedi Twilight
Outbound Flight
Allegiance
When Gravity Fails
Prisoner of the Daleks

I don't read books much. The only think I can read are a couple of comic books laying around.


And that strange magazine #40 carries around...

1, Move to Arrakis
2, Run from Harkonnens
3, overdose on spice.
4, ????
5, Prophet.

Books I've read throughout the ages:

Various books published for kids at 4 going to 5.

Star Trek TV book adaption at 7.

Pokemon TV book adaption at 8.

Game Manuals going from 9 (didn't even bother with them during the Genesis era when the Game Boy was just around the corner; just needed how I needed to play)-Today.

Halo Game book adaption "Contact Harvest" at 17.

Online fanfics and others - Today.

This here's pretty much self-explanitory if you don't mind.


Workshop/DA/YT/Photobucket なにかんがえてるの!?
So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Currently reading
Shifting Tides by Anne Perry.

I've read many books but I cant call the names right now. The only one I can remember right now is Tom Brown's Schooldays.

I had a teacher that said it was plagiarism if three words in a sentence were the same.

I'm currently (re)reading Terry Pratchett's Monstrous Regiment. I got it a few years ago, got halfway through and got bored. Reading it again, I can appreciate the humour a lot more. It's a very good book. I'd reccomend it to fans of political satire.

Ross O'Carroll-Kelly: Should Have Got Off At Sydney Parade by Paul Howard. Like the other books in the Ross O'Carroll-Kelly saga, it's hilarious.

As was I when I saw the title. A very interesting book about not only their history but also about their possible future as well.
