Wintar pickchars.












Also. I read a book called The Ninja by Eric van Lustbader. It's about a homosexual ninja who rapes his cousin and kills a lot of people in New York, because, why the fuck not. I know that sounds awesome but it really wasn't. This book was on the NY Times bestseller list for 22 weeks. I've spent all morning trying to figure out why. I can't think of anything though, so I'm just gonna move on to wondering what kind of inventions and buildings pigs would create if they had hands.

I don't want to believe that a book with such an awesome premise could be bad. Also I <3 snow.

WAH-OH, Stig's second post since October and I have to be the bone of contention.

Ahem, ahem...with that stated, I have more than a couple of Eric Van Lustbader's books. I'll admit, they're all pretty much the same, whether it be "Black Blade Society," "The Jian," or "The Ninja" (there was a follow-up to that one too that I have layin' around, about a female ninja stalking corporate and yakuza execs).

But nigga, have you lost your fool mind?

HE ain't homosex, he got raped back before he became a ninja, y'know? THAT situation revolves - The Miko, that was the Ninja followup book's title - anyway, that situation revolved around how him being a half-breed in Japan during the 70's or 80's or whatever, and was whupping EVERYONE in bujutsu, a fighting style that's a hardcore conglomeration of many other martial arts, Shinto, and Miyamoto-style fencing. But he had also finally got to the point where he surpassed his full-blooded Japanese cousin in the martial arts, thus prompting said cousin to track down a Ninja group and joined.

Eventually he'd disappear, become Sasuke from Narutard, and when the main character tracked him down he learned of what had happened and whilst escaping with yet another cousin that both had fallen in love with, said Sasuke showed up, paralyzed his ass then...well, raped his ass. Literally.

He then raped the cousin who had chosen the main character and took off with her in tow. Only reason she went with Sasuke was 'cuz he was getting ready to kill his ass after the rape.

And that's just ONE situation out of multiples that occur within the book. Admittedly though, I can see how that one can really stand out in someone's head, but to be honest it's an entirely Japanese mindset.

Altogether though, The Ninja isn't anywhere near as good as Black Blade Society or The Jian, but is a fine example of his slightly-dry (politically-speakin') writing style.

I still prefer him over King at that. At least with Van Lustbader you're assured of sex scenes involving people of actually consenting age.

Worst part 'bout it? I didn't even want to read The Ninja at first, my ex-girlfriend put me up to it and I just kinda picked up his other books from used book stores whenever I found 'em.

I think pigs would build an atom bomb to use against the Muslims and jews for being "too good" to eat them, thus insulting them.

Those pictures are awesome. Winter around here is just snow piled on farm fields. Except right now, we've had a bit of a warm up; it's now some snow on top of mud and brown grass

The Bastard: I guess I was pretty damn unclear about that. I pretty much felt that the whole book was about Saigō and not Nicholas, hence the "about a homosexual cousin-rapist who kills a lot of people" part. Nicholas only kills one guy, if I remember it correctly. I felt this way because Nicholas's entire existence revolves around Saigō and the people he lost because of him, making the book just as much, if not more, about Saigō. Should've clarified that better.

And there was atleast one sex scene between Saigō and a young boy (at the whore house) so I dunno about the consenting age. Personally I don't care when it comes to books though.

To me, the whole premise was just too ridiculous for me to be able to take it seriously. But I have to say I'm glad you disagree with me, it makes for much more interesting comments. :)

Generally Disgruntled: That would be pretty awesome actually. I would love to shove that up a vegan face or two.

Sidenote: I agree with the vegan "cause" or whatever you want to call it, but like all fundamentalists, they piss me off anyway.


Everyone else: Thankyou! No wallpaper versions avaliable Nathan, they're taken with a crappy cell phone camera so there's not much I can do there.

Maybe that homosexual ninja book is one of those books that are so bad it's entertaining. Anywho, if pigs had hands I think they would probably just look really weird, and probably not use them to build anything. Just my opinion.
