OMG. I can't believe someone thought it would be a good idea to release that. I'd be embarrassed to show that to my friends if I were Metallica. It seems like a parody or some comic's routine come to fruition. "So I always thought it would be funny to mash up two completely different and random acts... Alright, here's Lou Reed singing for Metallica." The audience laughs before he even does the impression.

Good news, though. 1.5 weeks of finals/papers and then only one more year of grad school left. I will be in MN in December, too, so I look forward to be able to play some boot and get some skating in...
Mayhem showed a lot of ring rust and some bad cardio - he owned the first but then tired out and Bisping boxed him to death.

After watching their documentary, which was one of the funniest/strangest things I've seen, I'm convinced that Metallica is either so full of themselves that they truly think they are gods among men, or that they decided to start pranking the entire world starting with St Anger/Some Kind of Monster.

I woke up with the "Dangle Snipe & Celly" stuck in my head. It's not a good way off a Monday.

I woke up with Skinny Puppy's "Assimilate" ringing through my head...

That pretty much means I'm going to have a Dexter-Like day...

Yeah, I avoid political forums/discussions lately (last 5 years count as lately?).

However, I am a founding member of the "Honey Badger Party".

It's sort of based on a grass-roots, Libertarian ideology where we "don't care" what anyone else does, as long as they "don't care" what we do, and we have a government that "don't give a ****" about what we do, and since they "don't care" they "don't need" our money...

I hated the politics forum on the old boards, as much as I used to post in it. So much useless anger and frustration.

How similar is it to the voter apathy party? Being that I'm already a member of the Apathy party I don't want to be redundant, not that I really care or anything.

We return and James Sheppard is worshipped as a God and popcorn is the national food.

I forgot to post that I finished a Storm of Swords last week.

My thoughts(in spoiler tags, just in case)

Spoil:
I thought it started out slow but picked up steam in the last third of the book. However, I thought the way GRRM handled all teh main character deaths was boring and quick.

Robb's death? Done and over with so quickly I had to go back and read it a few times. Not because it was a shock, but because the way he worded that chapter was confusing and made me question what I was reading. I think it is a good plot point to kill him though, at least so far. Why did I care more about his wolf dying than him dying? Dunno. But I did. I didn't care that Robb's head was hacked off, I got pissed when they cut his dog's head off to sew on it.

Catelyn's death(and then revival?) was done pretty much the same way. I didn't care for it or against it at all. When she came back I know you as a reader are supposed to go "Oh my god she's alive!" but really, I just kinda said okay and moved on. It was odd that Arya's wolf(right? This hasn't been confirmed I don't think, but she is like Bran and her dreams are actually living through her wolf, right? I was confused because isn't her first dream as the wolf killing all of the brave companions, but then they're alive anyway? I got confused by this.) found Catelyn in the river. I didn't get the point of including that in the book.

Jon becoming Lord Commander was well done. I had that spoiled to me before so I knew it was going to happen but I thought it was well done. Jon is probably my second or third favorite character at this point. Stannis saving all of them at the battle was pretty cool, too. Which brings me to my next point;

Davos the onion knight: I cared for him little in the last book and some in this book, but his last two or three chapters were very well done, IMO. When he broke it down for Stannis and started reading about the need at the wall, I just got super happy. But then Davos is never mentioned again, and one of the black brothers says that a man was burned for quick travel before they departed for the wall. I hope it wasn't Davos.

Jaime grew on me, I'll admit. I enjoyed reading his chapters in the latter half of the book.

Cersei: Don't care about either way. I know I'm supposed to hate her, but I don't. The only thing I hate about her is reading about her, she's just a boring character.

Tyrion: meh, I enjoyed his parts early on and he really grew on me in the middle of the book, but by the end I didn't care. He admits to Jaime he killed Joff? lol wut? Then he kills Tywin? lol wut. That death was just ****ing lame and stupid. I did like to see that he got his revenge on his wench though.

Sansa: meh. Boring character, I don't care what happens to her at all. Littlefinger killing her aunt was a decent moment, but it wasn't as crazy as it should have been. I assume Littlefinger's plan from the start was to marry the aunt to get his claim on the land then kill her to somehow arrange a marriage with Sansa? Living his catelyn fantasies though the daughter?

Arya: Favorite character bar none. Reuniting with the Hound was awesome, it was sad to see him die as I really enjoyed his character. Then she left on the ship at the end and now in this fourth book she's going to become an assassin(I assume? I just ended her first chapter when she arrived in Braavos.)

Bran's journey north: cool. I've been thinking that the black-handed rider is the uncle Stark, Benjen or whatever. Pure speculation that will probably be confirmed or denied as I read on. That suspenseful part in the tower with the wildlings(and Jon) right there was very well handled. Then meeting up with Sam was done masterfully. I fully assumed the thing coming up the well was going to be an Other or something.

I'm 4-6 chapters into the 4th. Brienne's aiight, IMO. Arya's a badass. Jon's a dick to Sam. Cersei is boring. That's pretty much how far I am now.



I'd rate the books so far:

Game of Thrones: 7/10
Clash of Kings: 8/10
Storm of Swords: 7/10

I graded them harder than I usually grade books, but whatever. However you read my thoughts on these books, I do enjoy the series.
