    I’ll confess, I’m a GRRM fan annoyed with his commentary on football and other projects. I never complained on his blog or elsewhere though. I feel that he should be able to finish it whenever he does. But man, it sure is hard to wait…

    I find it amusing that both of you haven’t finished (as of this podcast) “Ender’s Game” yet. But only because I’m nearly in the same boat. I didn’t finally read it until a few months back. It was incredible—need I even say? I’ve heard some people complain that kids that young are not that smart…but I think the whole point is that they are: Geniuses.

    I’m also not a big fan of horror. I recall being scared as a kid, though it never seemed to the level of traumatizing. I think the (more or less) sole purpose of being scared, is just not quite that interesting to me. I like more story and character than things jumping out of the shadows at the screen.

    Looking forward to the next ‘cast.
