Books to get you wicked excited about Fallout 3

Read it in a day. The man is a master in describing the various consistencies of ash. Ash, wet ash, slushy ash, bloody ash, cold ash, gore strewn ash, trampled ash, you name it. This is one seriously ashy book. And it's a decent read, the dialogue if condensed would fill maybe 4 pages, font size 12. Not nearly as depressing as SirFrancisDrake made it out to seem. Honestly I thought the woodsmoke smelling savior was going to feast on his lower extremities while hauling him down the coast in a wagon. But good all the same. Excellent post-apocalyptic doomsday book.

The other one I'm almost done with but there is no physical way I could read it in an entire day is the unabridged and complete...

Not nuclear weapons this time but bioweapons ala 'Captain Trips'. I'm not done but he's going all metaphysical on me. I prefer my doomsday books to by light on thought and heavy on survival and biker gangs with crazy getups.

What was Lucas thinking...

...naming the one fat pilot Porkins?

Let me introduce you to AWESOME

Pleasure to meet you Awesome...Charmed I'm sure.

Messiah College and too much time

Brak reminds me of college and all the time I frittered away enriching my character and sense of self. Totally time well spent.

The ultimate in social interactivity and super internet timewaster. And I just signed up. Yikes. Well after a couple of friends who I see about once every 3 years or so told me to get on, well I did. So there, I'm on. Send me some flair or have your zombie hug me or whatever other wicket retaaded things you do on there.

I feel like such a follower...

The City of Ember

I'm reading this children's/young adult book that will soon be a movie and have really been enjoying it. It's totally a cross between Brazil and any of the Fallout games. And with Fallout 3 I can totally see Doon checking his Pipboy 3000 about air quality in those lower pipeworks!

Anyway I'll have a full on review when I'm done.
