You can't beat ships that turn you into jelly when you use them in their intended manner, haha. My dad told me about that when I was like, 9 or 10 and I thought that was the coolest thing I'd ever heard. Still kinda do, haha.

Oh my god yes!!!! The hyperion cantos is my favorite book series, with Ilium and Olympos coming in not too far behind. Plus I work at a used bookstore so I get to collect all the original hardbacks. You should totally read Flashback. Its funny that he went to near future after writing three historical fiction novels.
Oh my god, how have I been gone, like, the whole time you've been here? What are your feelings on Tropic Lame? Pumped for the new album?

Drew! I must know if you've read A Memory of Light!
Also, on the sci-fi front, I just finished Dan Simmons most recent work, Flashback. Its pretty much a hard-boiled detective/dystopian novel in 2045, about 25 years after The Day It All It the Fan. 365 million americans are addicted to reliving the days prior to that by using flashback, and the whole world has gone to shit.
Absolutely I have. I'm through the first three episodes, planning on getting through at least three more this weekend.
I've really enjoyed it thus far, due in no small part to Kevin Spacey's performance. I'm guessing they aren't for some people, but his soliloquies are one of my favorite things about the show. Looking forward to seeing where it ends up going.
