Been lurking the last week or two, and figured I ought to join up. Not really much more to say than that. Some of you will recognise me as being a member from the DN forums. Though, I am not active enough there to be that noticeable.

We remember you of old, and are mindful of your presence.

(I didn't remember you as a fan of the new books, though. Funny, that, what? :P )
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Anybody that quotes "Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance" has my instant respect d00d. No matter how weird your username is.

I tolerated Hunters. It was bad*, but Sandworms was dire*. As for the quote, sadly I only got this nugget from another book which quoted from it. Haven't read the book itself.

Oh, and thanks for the greetings :)

Welcome my Irish kinfolk!
“But what is the good of friendship if one cannot say exactly what one means? Anybody can say charming things and try to please and to flatter, but a true friend always says unpleasant things, and does not mind giving pain. Indeed, if he is a really true friend he prefers it, for he knows that then he is doing good.” -Oscar Wilde

It was the convenience store scene, when he fakes a hold up with the cashier :)

TYLER: An expired community student ID! What did you study, Raymond?
RAYMOND: S-s-s-stuff...
TYLER: Stuff? Were the mid-terms hard?

Tyler taps the gun barrel against the back of Raymond's head.

TYLER: I asked you what you studied.
RAYMOND: Biology, mostly.
TYLER: Why?
RAYMOND: I don't know...
TYLER: What did you wanted to be, Raymond K. Hessel?

Raymond weeps and says nothing. Tyler COCKS the gun. Raymond GASPS.

TYLER: The question, Raymond, is what did you want to be?
JACK: Answer, Raymond! Jesus!
RAYMOND: Veterinarian! Veterinarian!
TYLER: Animals.
RAYMOND: Yeah, animals and s-s-s....
TYLER: ...stuff, yeah I got that.
