    What Book Did You Read Last Night???

    just finished Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts which was pretty epic and great...sure, it was a little bit too flowery and quaintly philosophical at times, but overall I was left very impressed by this book. The chapter dealing with his time in prison was very vividly painted. At 940...

    Built to Spill Appreciation Thread.

    Although Keep it like a secret is an amazing album, Perfect from now on gets my No. 1 vote. The Wheelans gig some years ago was great...seeing a band play one of your favourite albums of all time in a small venue like Wheelans is hard to beat. I wasn't too taken by Ancient Melodies and You in...

    post apocalyptic/dystopian films

    Margaret Atwood is a class writer Oryx & Crake is one of my favourite books in the dystopia genre....the follow up, Year of the flood is pretty good too. On films, my brother told me to check out Stake Land : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1464580/ He said it's The Road meets Zombies meets...

    Person Of Interest

    that looks like it could be decent enough...I like Jim Caza...Caviez..Cazvue...I've always liked the Jesus guy for some reason (I'm probably the only fan of his Monte Christo film this side of the galaxy). I'll also just pretend that Abrams will somehow, in a stunning post modern media twist...

    whats the story with wristbands this year ? last year we turned up early at the forum on thursday, got wristbands and headed home for a siesta. That was a smart move in the end as there were thousands of people queueing when we got there later at around 7:30 I can't find any info on this on...

    has anyone managed to register a card yet...the portal is down at the moment so I can't get in but I'm reading on the forum that your card needs to be "Verified by Visa" which is some crazy high-tech (not really) verification system

    What Book Did You Read Last Night???

    currently reading Things We Didn't See Coming..half way through it (it's a just shy of 200 pages) and although it's interesting, I am not sure why it's received so many rave reviews. I read a review which referenced The Road when discussing it, and as The Road is one of my favourite books of...
