1  Discussion / Music Discussion / Summerfest on: June 21, 2009, 09:24:10 PM
Anyone going this year?

I'll probably be going on the 4th of July with some friends. We're going to see The Fray and Jack's Mannequin. Last time I went was a few years ago to see Evanescence. I believe it was not long after their Fallen album came out.

In case you didn't know about Summerfest, it's a yearly music festival held around the end of June/start of July in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

You can find out more information here.

I think moite might be a little confused on the topic title. It's not about study help or anything.

Although I know about the PRAXIS tests. I still have to take both of mine. >_>

Anyways, I'm a bit mad at myself. I keep all of my Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. documents from previous semesters, and in one, one of my professors had quite a bit of recommended reading, and there were some historical/war related ones that some of you might find interesting. I can't find that document to save my life though. >_>

I've always been an avid reader, but I've been a bit upset with myself the past few years because my reading has cut down dramatically. Lately, it has cut down to re-reading old favorites rather than exploring new literature.

So, this summer, I've decided to pick up a few books I'd like to go through.

As for fiction, I picked up a copy of H.P. Lovecraft's complete works, since I've always been a big fan of his novellas and would always like a copy of them as well as his short stories. The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, At the Mountains of Madness, and The Call of Cthulhu are definite favorites among his novellas and Dagon is probably among the best of his short stories. I've also picked up a translation of Dante's Divine Comedy. I've always been a big fan of Inferno, so it would be nice to finish reading Dante's journey through Purgatory and Paradise. I had gotten a few recommendations on decent translations, and I believe I've picked the best one.

For nonfiction, I picked up a great book by Mary Roach. Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers is a great read with incredible information on the history of anatomical research, and what your body might be in for if you donate your body to science (I'm sure there are plenty of people who didn't imagine their heads, or rather, their faces, are being used by plastic surgery students to learn how to do face lifts). As for a more serious read, I also picked up The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins, as it isn't anywhere near as preachy as The God Delusion. If I find it interesting enough, I might get The Extended Phenotype as well.

I do have some guilty pleasure reads as well. I'm sure if I get in the mood, I'll probably pick up some old Redwall books. I've enjoyed them a great deal ever since I was little. They are fun little books that I can get through in a few days or so.

So how about you guys? Do you read much? What genres do you enjoy? Are you planning on doing any extra over the summer?

I'd have to agree with Mod245. The Sims games that have already been released for other consoles have been mediocre at their best.

I loved the Lewis Black specials, as well as Gabriel Iglesias' "Hot and Fluffy."

Lisa Lampanelli's "Take It Like A Man" was great, but they only show it in the Hidden Stash on Fridays/Saturdays.

Anybody been keeping up on the new season? I have only seen the psychic detective one, been busy lately and havent had time to watch it  Undecided

If that's the episode I'm thinking of, then you've missed about 64 episodes because that episode aired back in 2004.

Anyways, the newest season is okay. I found "Fishsticks" to be the best so far if only because they make fun of Kanye West.

Eh, I'd need to get a new computer first since my current one is over five years old. XDDD

I have to agree with Tormentor on the God of War series bosses. I love how you can use (and most of the time have to use) your surroundings to defeat your opponents, whether it is the Hydra in God of War or any one of the three Fates in God of War II, they are just epic.

I gotta say, I'm extremely excited to see what new sorts of gameplay and story that this game will add to this series. Granted, I don't have any console to play it on, but needless to say, I know for a fact my brother who has a PS3 will be getting this, so I'm sure I'll be visiting him quite a bit after the release.
