You haven't seen Death Note? What are you waiting for? XD I think it's on most of the streaming services. GREAT anime!

I'll take a look at both of the recommendations and get back to you

It's always interesting to see how a book is going to start. "Happiness? Happiness... is to wake up, on a bright spring morning, after an exhausting first night spent with a beatiful... passionate.. multi-murderess." "... Shit, is that all?" I think I might already love this book Iain M. Banks writes great books, we'll see if this turns out to be another.

I'm always a little behind due to waiting on things to become available for streaming. Season 5 is now available on Amazon Instant Video! woot! I've watched it now, and wanted to know what others thought. MANY SPOILERS below. Obviously the biggest arc in season 5 was Will dying. I think without something this big, the season would have fallen on it's face. Alicia and Kerry moving into their own offices was fun, but the nearly immediate mention of a merger between the new firm firm and the old was rough. I enjoyed the stress on Alicia's marriage due to Will's death, as well as the NSA and reddit references. So - looking forward to season 6

Destiny is just about as hyped as any other game in recent history. I watched a bit of a live steam, and didn't come away impressed. Have any of you played it, and if so, what are your thoughts?

Are there other animes that scratch the same itch that Death Note does? I'm not quite ready to rewatch Death Note, but certainly wouldn't mind something along the same lines.

Basshunter was one of my earlier introductions into eletronica/techno/trance types of music. He's been around for a while. I definitely haven't listened to him as much as I used to, but his new album has some nice stuff on it

This is a fun one to watch Peg is a bit over dramatic, but other than that it's a fun show, and the art style is wonderful.

Photon Sword right?

It even sounds like a lightsaber. I swear they took a lightsaber sound and just edited it a little bit. :p

On a more positive note, I'm enjoying the series so far.

That's something I've never had and something I'll have to try.

The people making this certainly do :p

I've never seen the show. It looks like something I would like to watch - so I'll have to check it out

 I was actually a pretty good kid - once upon a time :p Didn't drink anything until 21. 

Congrats on not having a drink for 2 years lonewolf! Alcohol is tricky bugger. I have friends that won't touch the stuff because their parents weren't able to control their habits.

Another one I like: Buchanan's Whiskey with a bit of Canada Dry and Ice.

Yeah me either :p

It's been a while since I've gone overboard though. There was actually a time when I had a fair amount of parties at my place, back when I had a room mate. But things change when you are married with a kid

Did you go to school to work on large machinery? Or did you fall into the job, or maybe just self taught?

I've known a few really mechnically minded people. Quite a few just work on their own things, and eventually spread out to working on friends/family.

Heavy machinery and hydraulics is another league of it's own though I worked for a tree service for a bit, and whenever something went wrong with the hydraulics it was a massive pain.

I have never tried scotch. It's something on my to-do list. Media gives the impression old white guys drink scotch, so one of these days
