I found out about Bakker when looking for more writers who have dark without being dark for the sake of it, and avoid alot of the tropes and crappy dialogue in alot of novels I've read.

I do love me some flighty quick reads, but I'd like to find more meaty novels like The Aspect-Emperor series.

I saw there's a film version of this being produced, and boy does it look atrocious.

...anyways, I'm a fan of his books, his recent The Lost Gate was a fun light read, read it last summer.

I've been meaning to read some Mieville, but haven't gotten around to it.

The Kingkiller books by Patrick Rothfuss have been recent re-reads, and a re-read of Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind, and The Angel's Game.

Kanye West - Lost In The World

I used to be one of the worst music snobs.

Disdainful of anything that smacked of overproduction or mainstream appeal.

I'd tell you to go listen to Pavement, or Superchunk, Neutral Milk Hotel or Cursive, or any other similar thing.

I've gotten to a point that if you enjoy it, piss on it, enjoy it.

Music elitism, or elitism in general in regard to media, is a crutch to make you feel better about yourself by demeaning other people's tastes.

Oh, and I quoted that post because that's a great track.


Kanye West - Coldest Winter
Mos Def - Mathematics
Neutral Milk Hotel - Oh Sister
Kesha / Iggy Pop - Dirty love

Those are a few that've been playing in my mental playlists lately.

Hey, I lurked quite a bit at the other forums, having found it after picking up The Darkness that Comes Before at my local library, and then hunting for copies of the rest of the series.

Decided I'd finally register and maybe contribute to a few discussions.

Just saying hello, and throwing my anticipation for The Unholy Consult onto the pile.
