Ooh, better have a foil-edition Dark Magician in there for me! Mine got destroyed last year. I did, in fact, delete it. Re-signed up after hearing the news. Go find fault with something else.

Boycott MySpace

I don't know if any of you are patrons of MySpace, and I know this is a strange way to come out of lurk mode, but just in case... They banned a toddler burn victim's pictures from being posted on a memorial myspace after his death by his parents, labeling them "offensive." This is absolutely disgust...

It's not really as Pelagian as it sounds, truth be told. I pictured a bunch of abandoned children too, but there's more too it than lost children.

City of the Lost Children is a must-see, especially if you're in a place where someone's already made you watch Lola Rennt. Cinema Paradiso is another great one, also All The Little Animals, but I don't know if you consider British cinema to be foreign.

That, in fact, IS part of that series. One's for Time, one for Mars, one for one of the Fates, etc. That's the only one I've read, but I was intrigued by the idea. The other titles are like Wielding a Red Sword and something about a Skein, right?

I honestly don't remember. It was one of thousands this guy had stacked everywhere, no semblance of order. The cover is orange, though, with a guy in Death's hood.

I'll definitely have to check the other one out. I've been at loose ends lately for something to do, so maybe I need a book.

Plus the Mi of Enki? Actually a studied thing, from what I've heard on the internet before. Pretty cool concepts, and I love when they snow crash people. The whole avatar thing was a little "duh, I lived through the 90s, I know what an avatar is!" but they do take it a step farther, I'll admit.

Plus that's the beauty of the story. You get so attached to Ender, cos like they said, he's just good. And when someone you love dies, even if you could never really talk to them or anything, it sucks. And you cry.

While I agree that after Ender's Game, the series takes a definite turn for the more "mystical," I think it was too abrupt a change in the way he found the hive queen.

Ender wasn't completely invited into battle school until they saw not only a) what he did without his monitor, and b) why he did it. If they left out what he did and why, ie, Stilson's death, they'd have to re-write his invite and change the story.
