    I liked the music selection on this show. Handlebars is great.
    Speaking of great… has anyone heard of Darkfall? I had heard some “whispers” about it, but just checked it out. It looks like Age of Conan/Oblivion, but done right. lol. If anyone is going to check it out, plz let me know how it goes b/c it’s definitely something MMO gamers should be looking at.

    Enjoyed the Book corner. hehe. Since I wrote that email here’s what I’ve read.

    Orson Scott Card – Pastwatch
    Isaac Asimov – I, Robot
    Robert Heinlein – Stranger from a Strange Land
    Robert Heinlein – Starship Troopers
    Justina Robson – Keeping it Real
    Wanted – Graphic Novel
    Walking Dead – First four books of the series
    300 – Graphic Novel
    Sin City – Graphic Novel Series

    All pretty good. Stranger from a Strange Land was really good. I took me a long time to get over how different the book gets about half way through. Really took a turn, but a good book for sure. Orson Scott Card’s Pastwatch was also really good. If you like OSC books, you should give that one a read.

    The walking dead books are a compilation of the first part of the comic series in hardback format. That whole story is awesome and new comics are still being put out monthly. The 300 and Sin City graphic novels are awesome too. The movies were so close to the books it’s amazing. Wanted was good, but the movie murdered the story. It’s WAAAAY different than the movie.
