The Convenience of Audiobooks
What qualities of audiobooks do you feel are inferior or superior to reading hard copies? Do you think being able to use your hands or exercising while listening to a book is useful, or do you prefer the feel of holding a physical copy and focusing your vision on the words rather than on your surroundings?

When do you write the most?
Different people prefer to write at different times of the day and night, and many believe that they write better or for longer during these hours. Explain if you think this belief is valid or not and if there is any particular part of the day you prefer to write in? Are you a early morning writer or do prefer to write in the afternoon? Are you an evening writer or do you write long into the night? What times do you write the most or the best? AM or PM, explain when and why you write the most then, and if you think writing at this time makes any difference.

Hardest part of writing a novel; starting, continuing or ending?
What do you find more difficult about writing a novel? Getting started, continuing the novel or ending it? This will be different from one person to another such as having trouble beginning if you can’t think of a good starting point, are a perfectionist or have too many ideas to choose from. You might have trouble continuing if you can’t imagine what’s going to happen next, get a brand new idea that you want to pursue or don’t know how the characters will get from point A to point B. Finally, after you have grown to love the characters and the world, do you have trouble wrapping it up in a satisfying way or letting go of everything you have worked so hard on? Give a commentary on what part of writing a novel you find the most difficult.
Can Marvel Studios do no wrong?
Recently Marvel Studios hasn’t made a bad film or television show. An average show, maybe, but nothing below 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. If a bad film of theirs were to come out, would it be acclaimed as one? Or do you think the fans would squint their eyes until we existed in a world where Marvel Studios could do no wrong?
Anime Review: Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works
Fate Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works is the fifth anime adaptation of the Fate series and third adaptation from the Fate Stay Night visual novel. It’s the sequel to the Fate/Stay Night prequel Fate/Zero and, with Heaven’s Feel in the wing, the second in a soon to be three-part Ufotable Fate Stay Night collection.
Its plot follows the Unlimited Blade Works story-line of the Fate Stay Night visual novel, branching off halfway through the story of Emiya Shirou’s Holy Grail war (a battle royal between ancient magical heroes) to focus more on the heroine Rin Tosaka and her Servant, Archer. Archer has ulterior motives for participating in the Holy Grail war that involves Shirou in more ways than one. Together with his Servant Saber, Shirou and Rin must find a way of stopping not only the other masters and servants, but stopping the complete destruction of their home city.
So far this anime possesses not just the highest quality of animation and best sound track for a Fate series but it also contain’s much more character development, better pacing and a twist that completely changes the way you will look at the series. A must watch for any fans of Fate, my only caveat is that you watch Fate/Zero before it as its context bring into perspective the cause of the main characters’ deep seeded ideologies.
Anime Review: Parasyte - The Maxim
With the English dub of Parasyte -The Maxim about to be aired on the Adult Swim block of Toonami on the 3rd of October, I thought a spoiler free review would be in order for those of you curious enough to want to know what you’re going to be in for.
Does Parasyte -The Maxim have aspects of horror and gore? Yes, but even if you don’t find that appealing it shouldn’t put you off because alongside the horror elements comes one of most thrilling atmospheres in an anime since Death Note. With subtle drama, great action scenes and character development that actually makes sense in the context of the story, Parasyte -The Maxim is the best adult action anime I have watched since Attack on Titan.
Parasyte -The Maxim shares many similar traits in common with the classic Spiderman origins story. Geek gains powers, loses loved ones and his character changes until he’s a badass fighting other badasses. However, what this anime does is give us a deeper look into the inner-conflict that this change creates between the main character and the ones he cares for.
We are also given view into the alien minds of the Parasites, their goals and how, through their relationships with humans, they come to understand them and our world.
The Problem with Sword Art Online
After discussing Sword Art Online with many other fans and anime bloggers, here is a list of the many issues with the anime.
These include, but are not limited to:
-The pervasive fan service used throughout the series.
But the word “malevolent” is also only used in the Epicurus’s Paradox quote in this article also, so yeah, no my words.
Some parts of it are, I agree.
Hah! I get it, mothers! Good one.
I was also really exciting, too much!
Well, I’m glad the post lived up to the title.
I don’t I ever used the word evil. It might have been in the Epicurus’s Paradox but, as shown in the references, those are not my words. I also clearly stated that this belief, if you have it, shouldn’t be something to stop someone from believing god, so what you saying is not really a disagreement with this article.
Haha, it really depends on what subdemographic of Christians, there are quite a few of them and their views on things like this are quite different.
