Re: “Patrick Rothfuss: The Mercury Interview

I find it both interesting and frustrating that Book 3 is going to be the end of Kvothe's story. I've heard a lot of readers assuming that Rothfuss will 'follow up' on the initial trilogy with Kvothe's life after the Waystone, but I don't think this is the author's goal.

Another point: The detailed worldbuilding by Rothfuss that informs but doesn't obstruct the progress of the narrative is something that really makes him a special author. You know the information on the world has been thought out, but they aren't necessarily dumped on the reader immediately, which makes learning about the world when information on it is revealed a treat instead of a chore.

Re: “Patrick Rothfuss: The Mercury Interview

This is a great interview. I like how it's longer. I haven't read these books but I probably will now. It seems like the subtext of a lot of this interview is the failure of George R. R. Martin to finish Game of Thrones. It sounds like Mr. Rothfuss will finish his series.

Re: “The Rainbow Connection

I can't even say how much this comic being canceled bums me out. I suppose it doesn't have fucking Wolverine in it so Marvel can't really get behind it.

Re: “Kid Logic

I'm glad I get to say "I went to high school with this guy" in a story like this than in one about pedestrians getting hit by cars or something. Ethan rocks.

Re: “Adapting Parker

Darwyn Cooke is to the graphic novel what Alison Hallett is to arts reviews. Nice one!

Re: “Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality

If we could travel back to when critters diverged into interior sperm depositation, therein lies the first of the fittest. resources were conserved, a next generation virtually guaranteed. Sex is wired into the amygdala of our brain, the oldest section of the brain and the first to appear in the head of animals: Most likely lizards, the oldest living example of evolutiion.
They as we smell our objects of sexual desire, thru a veromosnal nerve which comes from the nose,the only nerve wired directly to the brain. We actually smell a receptive person, and if the chemistry is right, they will mate, in a frenzy of sexual congresses. When the female becomes inpregnated, her smell changes, the male is no longer turned on,
except for the fact we are actually meant to be mostly monogamous, and the feel of her vagina around his penis, makes him fall in love and stay.
Does not destroy that pesky veromonasal nerve going straight back to his brain. All of a sudden he has a choice, head for the next available, ready female, or stay with the one he is with, usually he will try to do both.

Re: “Why Do We Stop Drawing?

A lingering question from "Down the Street," which I read some years ago: How is Marlys pronounced? Mair-liss? Mar-liss? Mair-lees?

Re: “Zombies Never Die

So I drift online while pretending to be sick at work and on IMDB I stumble onto a video recount of Guillermo del Toro which I discover is recounted by non-other than this douchebag...ERIK FLABNAGGIN HENRIKSEN! I immediately feel like Gene Hackman looking out the window as Owen Wilson sneaks out of Gwenyth Paltrow's room...."I KNOW YOU *SSHOLE!). Thank you Portland Mercury for allowing this sorry nerd to have an occupation...previous residents of Caldwell Idaho Salute YOU! BTW Ralph Smeed died...did you know that?

Re: “Girl Fucking Power

For people who find this particular brand of subject matter interesting, I kindly suggest snagging this fairly comprehensive collection of female-fronted punk rock spanning from 1977-1989:…

Quite a few of these songs are timeless classics, and have made their way into regular rotation on my iPod.

I thought Danger Girl was awesome...but $50 for seven issues? Couldn't you buy them for $1.99 each off of Ebay?
