See, I am the exact opposite.  I always wait for the paperbacks, so I'm a good 6-12 months behind on most novels.   :-\  Without giving anything away from the plot, how would you compare this to the New Jedi Order or Legacy of the Force books?

To me this "Fate" series doesn't hold a candle to the other two, especially NJO.

I'm a little over half way done with "Abyss" and in my opinion it is ten times better than "Omen" was already. I was a little worried so I'm glad to feel that way.

Just heard the stat on ESPN that in the history of baseball before Joe Mauer this year there have only been four players to have 25+ HR and have a AVG. at .380+ this late in the season: Ruth, DiMaggio, Gehrig, and Ted Williams. WOW!!!!!!

Sorry to hear about Tarkin. I have a 17 year old cat who is in really good health other than he has gotten skinny over the years. I dread the day that changes.

I wanted to name our younger cat Wilhuff but my wife wouldn't let me so now he's Grand Moff Howie. Needless to say she calls him just Howie.

I love the idea of having a Darth Maul, etc. on a vintage looking card. I have no problem with it at all.

Spoken like a true homer.  ;)  Frankly, I'm skeptical that the Vikes can make the playoffs given Brad's coaching.  I'd trust in Forte's ability more than I trust in Brad's ability to successfully use all the weapons at his disposal.  Also factor in that Favre has not had any time to gel with his new team and has practiced even less than at any point in his career - the Vikes have a lot of question marks as well.

Yeah, but, who cares what a Packers fan living in Minnesota thinks about the Vikings?  ;)

Is she okay? I've seen that happen on some of the Animal Planet shows before.

He should be landing in the Twin Cities pretty quickly.  Not sure if this is good for the team on the long run, but it will sell jerseys.

I'm for it. It certainly isn't a long term solution, but I don't think any QB on the Vikings team is a long term solution either so let's see what happens. We can still hand the ball off to AP, but now we will have a quarterback that can throw a pass more than ten yards with it being in the vicinity of the receiver.

Another FYI. I don't know about the rest of you but I almost always have to buy my SW books (if I want them the day they come out) at Barnes & Noble or Borders and they are like $25 for a hardcover. But thankfully this time it looks like "Abyss" will be available at Target for just $18.70 even though they didn't have the first two books in the series. So it's like getting a free paper back or a 1/4 of the 12th season of "The Simpsons" for free tomorrow.

Not sure where to post this.  Move if needed.  I need to sell off a bunch of stuff and thought I would start with all the figs that werent in the movies, books, comics, games, etc. Help me out if you can.  I know the list will be huge.  Even if a figure was in a cut scene I still plan to collect those types of figs.

Thaks in advance 8)

Wait, all the figures that WEREN'T in the movies, books, comics, games, etc.? What is left? Wouldn't that be a list of zero figures?

I'm glad you pointed that out. That was my first thought, but then I thought is seemed so obvious maybe I was missing something and was going to sound like a moron if I said that (not that I don't sound like a moron most of the time anyway).

Go Vikings and Patriots!!!

People are kidding themselves when they think the fear Vick's dogs were feeling, the feer a deer fleeing from a hunter, or the cow that has been stuck in a tiny space for its life while it is fed unnatural foods and then is injured but noone cares and it lives the rest of its life that way until its brought to the slaughter house are all feeling differently. No doubt.

But when we are talking about the motivation the human repsonsible for the animal's death, that is where Vick's is so hard to come to terms with. With that being said we are responsible for the cow's horrible life when we buy the burger NOT just the commercial farmer. But you have to recognize the mind set is different.

I am not a vegetarian but pretty close (although that's like saying your sort of pregnant). I never have meat in the house. I don't order it in restaraunts very often. But I love a hamburger and will fall off the wagon when I let myself. And where I would never ever want to go hunting and don't get why people do and think it is a horrible shame people will turn a blind eye to the horrendous way the animal they are eating lived and died in unnatural ways, I still think there is a difference in what Vick did compared to you sitting down to eat a hamburger or even you going out hunting.

I am going to stop now or this won't end and I'll get pissy.

And to get back to a NFL topic, T Jack still sucks.

But, like I (think I) said... he did his time, I'm willing to give him his shot at showing everyone that he's reformed.  I'm just glad he's not doing it on the team I follow.

Exactly how I feel!!!!!!

And now to talk about quarterbacks that never thought electricuting dogs with jumper cables was okay........ It sure was good to see Tom Brady look so good yesterday (I know it was pre-season).

I've been super hyped since I saw the first preview. I'm glad to hear it's living up to the hype so far.
