Couple of questions if you don't mind me asking: I'll be working near Louisville, but would prefer to live closer to Denver as we're not much into the suburbs thing.

What type of commute would it be living in the city and driving out to Louisville and also, what are some good neighborhoods to check out?

We're probably going to rent for a year so any area with good apts, condos, toenhouses, or rental homes with cool stuff to walk to would be ideal.

Thanks and I appreciate the help and look forward to being neighbors.
Louisville is pretty far away, but the positive thing is that you would have a reverse commute (most of the traffic would be going the other way). My friend commutes to Boulder every day. I would just suggest you live in the highlands so you're kind of on the west side of town to start out with. Highlands has bunches of rentals and is a youthful (25-40's) area.

I have never read The Hunger Games but 1984 is complete and utter garbage. What is the fascination with it?

Thanks.
I really need to watch this ;-)

Btw : Miranda is not nearly as hot as Anne Hathaway in that Batman movie.

The end of the movie was cool btw, hoping that there will a further one

ok this is as far as I am going on Anne Hathaway and I will stop after this, but in that Love and Drugs movie she has the most amazing "pair" you will have ever seen in your life.

What? I wouldn't put it in that category at all. Not that impressive.

It's a very well written book that offers excellent examples of the limits of human thought, emotion, capability and feelings - what makes us human. It can be hard to read actually, but it's certainly not complete and utter garbage.

I wouldn't call it very well written. It has good flow and a 'down to earth' feeling with the vocabulary, but it's not very well written. I'd say 50 Shades of Gray wins for best modern writing.



Kidding, but I would categorize Game of Thrones as well written.

I read Hunger Games.

Then I read Battle Royale.

HG is a ripoff of BR. And BR is better (the books, at least -- I haven't seen the movies).

1984 is well written when you get really technical about it. The way the sentences are structured and how Winston's actions are described. All of his actions are passive, each word is important to shape the whole book and the whole story. I've not read The Hunger Games though so I can't comment on that. And I have a friend currently reading 50 Shades of Gray... she's not enjoying it much

I wouldn't say Hunger Games was "well written".

It was written rather simplistically to be an easy read.

The examples are a result of entirely contrived and often illogical actions and scenarios. I understand the novel is not meant to be entirely (or in my opinion even partly) serious, but it was overbearingly tedious. It is not literally garbage but its academic merits I found fairly unfounded.

I've been playing a lot of Mortal Kombat lately, before school starts. I started the challenge tower and in about two and half weeks I got from #1 to #251. Problem is the last two days I've been stuck on 251 because it is so DAMN frustrating that I wanna throw this game infront of the space shuttle so it can disintegrate.

I have no effin idea why they decided to make 251 so effin hard, but it's pure garbage that makes the game not fun. But besides the challenge tower, the game is amazing.
