Quick Fire Fantasy (Tag)

fire-033

Bookstooge IS the Fire!

Joelendil tagged me with this and since it was his first time doing a tag on his blog, I wanted to make sure to actually do this instead of letting it languish in my “saved drafts” like the 3 other tags I currently have sitting in there.  I guess the point of this tag is to just react quickly to the questions with fantasy titles and not think, like a flame of fire racing along dried wood, devouring everything in its path.

Hope you have your s’mores ready!

 

5 STAR BOOK

11426110

The Last Dragon by Jane Yolen. One of the few times that the art overpowered me & one of the few graphic novels that impressed the ever-living daylights out of me.

 

ALWAYS GOING TO RECOMMEND

917579

Furies of Calderon by Jim Butcher.  This is the first book in the Codex Alera series and the whole series is just fantastic.  Never could get into Dresden and almost gave up on Butcher, until I tried this. Now I am a fan of the author, just not Dresden.

 

OWN IT BUT HAVEN’T READ

warlockholmes

The Warlock Holmes books (to date). I’m saving them to read until the series finishes. That is how I roll, yo, power to the people! #englishlivesmatter

 

WOULD READ IT AGAIN

eyeoftheworld

Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. Not only WOULD I read this book again, but I WILL be reading this book, and series, again. Hopefully by the end of year if not a little sooner.

 

IN ANOTHER WORLD

magickingdom

While MOST fantasy does take place on another world already, the book that sprang to mind was Magic Kingdom for Sale – Sold! by Terry Brooks. Ben buys a magic kingdom in a cataloge, thinking it’s a joke. Only to have it turn out to be a Real Magic Kingdom in another world and he is king indeed.

 

BACK ON EARTH

thirteenthchild

The Thirteenth Child by Patricia Wrede.  The Frontier Magic trilogy by Wrede takes place in an Alternate American West.  Wrede is one those female writers who doesn’t write warrior women grrrl power books and hence seems to not have caught the wave of social pukeitude sweeping the world. This is middle grade, so while it isn’t deeply complex, neither is it simplistic. Wrede is too good a writer for that!

 

I don’t tag people, just in case you didn’t know. But if you want something quick and easy, this definitely fits the category.  I will leave you now with the words from a song that are very apropos, even if I have nothing good whatsoever to say about the band.

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Seven Heavenly Book Virtues (Tag)

Pio and Ola took the Seven Deadly Book Sins tag and being Good Catholics (ha) have done a tag from the Other Perspective. So without further ado, here is their tag with my answers. Enjoy.

 

CHASTITY: WHICH AUTHOR/BOOK/SERIES YOU WISH YOU HAD NEVER READ?

Man, let me tell you. I wish I had never read the Ware tetralogy by Rucker. I did a “Surviving a Bad Book” post about the 3rd book, Freeware,  and even now, it just grosses me out.

 

TEMPERANCE: WHICH BOOK/SERIES DID YOU FIND SO GOOD, THAT YOU DIDN’T WANT TO READ IT ALL AT ONCE, AND YOU READ IT IN DOSES JUST TO MAKE THE PLEASURE LAST LONGER?

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin manga.  Of course, it helped that I was reading it from the library and could only check out so many at a time.

 

CHARITY: WHICH BOOK/SERIES/AUTHOR DO YOU TIRELESSLY PUSH TO OTHERS, TELLING THEM ABOUT IT OR EVEN GIVING AWAY SPARE COPIES BOUGHT FOR THAT REASON?

I’m not a real pusher. Probably the book to come closest to this though would be Dune. If someone mentions that they’re going to read it, I’m definitely there in the comments cheering them on. I do love Dune.

 

DILIGENCE: WHICH SERIES/AUTHOR DO YOU FOLLOW NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS AND HOW LONG YOU HAVE TO WAIT?

Adrian Tchaikovsky.  He had me with his Shadows of the Apt Decalogy. It helps that he’s almost the equal of Brandon Sanderson in terms of output. The man is a machine and just churns out the books year after year.

 

PATIENCE: IS THERE AN AUTHOR/BOOK/SERIES YOU’VE READ THAT IMPROVED WITH TIME THE MOST, STARTING OUT UNPROMISING, BUT ULTIMATELY PROVING REWARDING?

MHI is an urban fantasy series that has definitely improved as the series progressed and the author became more skilled. The first book, Monster Hunter International, I only gave 3 stars to back in ’12 and claimed I’d never re-read it. I’m planning on starting a re-read of the MHI series next year 😀

 

KINDNESS: WHICH FICTITIOUS CHARACTER WOULD YOU CONSIDER YOUR ROLE-MODEL IN THE HASSLE OF EVERYDAY LIFE?

Jerome from Way-Farer.  I can’t begin to describe how I see my younger self in that young man.  The good and the bad.

 

HUMILITY: WHICH BOOK/SERIES/AUTHOR DO YOU FIND MOST UNDER-RATED?

Anything by Patricia McKillip. That woman writes poetry in prose and her books always transport me. Her re-release of The Forgotten Beasts of Eld was a chance for the next generation to get some quality writing into their steady diet of YA pablum. Unfortunately,  they eschewed quality and chose the drivel. I do not see her surviving as a “named author” in 100 years.

 

And that wraps that up. I’d like to thank Pio and Ola for taking the time to create this.  Great job!

The Seven Deadly Book Sins (Tag)

I saw this tag over at Bookforager and she did a fantastic job of filling this tag out. I’d like to thank her for introducing me to this tag.

 

1)  GREED

What is the most expensive book you own? Which is the least expensive?

The most expensive is a hardcover, first edition, signed copy of Icerigger by Alan Dean Foster. Used copies on Amazon are now running close to $400. I didn’t pay that much but I paid enough 😀

The least expensive? Who knows. I’ve got a lot of books I got as freebies or something, so $0?

 

2) GLUTTONY

What book or books have you shamelessly devoured many times?

The Hobbit or Dune take that without even trying. Well, maybe Way-Farer. So since I’m talking about Gluttony, why not add 3 books that I’ve read the most times?

 

3) LUST

What attributes do you find most attractive in your characters?

NOT BEING STUPID IDIOTS. Gahhh, I don’t know how to say this even more. I HATE when authors make their characters stupid or do stupid things simply because the author is too fething lazy, stupid or talentless to actually write a good character.  Hmm, maybe this should have gone in the Wrath category. certainly got me steamed up enough!

 

4) ENVY

What books would you most like to receive as a gift?

Knight of Stars by Tom Lloyd. It’s his latest God Fragments book and I want to read it, now. But I’m not paying $10 for an ebook and buying paper books is almost at a standstill these days with our limited room.

 

5) PRIDE

What book or books do you bring up when you want to sound like an intellectual reader?

Me, be a snob? That is SO easy. You don’t even have to name drop a book. Just make the tone of your voice drip with disgust and complete dismissal when discussing the genre you despise.  But to play along….

War and Peace or any book by most of the Russians actually.  Dropping names like Gogol, Dostoyevsky and then adding something like “Yes, they were fine authors” is usually enough to overawe some rube online for the first time since coming off the turnip farm. Just make sure you actually know what you’re talking about in case you run into another fan.  There is no worse faux pas than talking about Gogol then getting caught out that you’ve never actually read Gogol.

 

6) SLOTH

What book or series have you neglected out of sheer laziness?

Shaman King. Went a whole month not reading that manga. Thankfully, I’m taking care of that particular issue this month (as you know if you’re following me).

 

7) WRATH

What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?

Shouldn’t that be a hate/hate relationship since we’re talking about Wrath, with a capital W? Thankfully, I hate almost all authors, just on general principal, so there is no love to any relationship.

But to pick an author that I especially hate, hmmmmm, I’ll have to think for a couple of seconds. Well, until I read the Holy Sister trilogy and my mind is changed, probably Mark Lawrence.  His Prince of Thorns has scarred me and Jorg has sickened in my mind like a cancerous blot. Lawrence has his legions of supporters but I’m not amongst them.

What’s On My Bookshelf? (Tag)

Norrie tagged me back in December, so I figure I’m doing pretty good to have done this within 3 months. Usually I count on 6, ha!  That being said, I’m always up for showing off my books. Shelfie posts are awesome, but individual covers of real, live books are just scrum-diddly-umptious!

Just to be clear, these are all actual books on my bookshelves. We’re talking genuine rotting tree carcasses here, with chemicals!

 

 

A book or genre I love to read when it’s raining

rain

The Pool of Fire is the final book in the Tripods Trilogy. A great middle grade series that ends on a very dystopian note. Christopher was not a Utopianist. The gloomy ending is best read on a day that the sun is not shining.

 

A book I wish had illustrations

pix

The Rook was supposed to be a standalone but its success convinced O’Malley (well, more than likely his publishers) that a second book in the Checquy Files was in order. I would have liked to have seen some of the monsters described in this book.

 

A book that made me emotional

emotion

When I read this back in 2001, the ending just got me right in the feelz. Haven’t had the courage to re-read it for fear that I’ll just roll my eyes now.

 

 

A book that made me laugh

laugh6

Good old Rincewind. This SFBC omnibus has the first 2 adventures, The Color of Magic and The Light Fantastic and then 2 more generic Discworld books. I know most people disagree, but I have always found Rincewind to the funniest stuff that Pratchett wrote. After Rincewind he seemed to get a lot more satirical, biting and bitter.

 

An old book

old1

 

old2

This is the oldest book I have that has a year on it. I’ve got several other Dickens books that appear to be just as old but don’t have any information inside of them beyond stating they are reprintings from the first edition. Nothing worth any money due to their condition but they sure look cool!

 

A steamy book

steamy

The 4th book in the Green Rider series. I’d waited 3-4 years between each book and while it started out as an awesome fantasy series, it really devolved into a romance writer wish fulfillment thing. This book has some sort of dream sex sequence so I was just done.  Considering that Britain (the writer, not the country) has pretty much let this series dribble down into an unfinished  mess, well, I think I made the right decision. It is a series that will never be finished.

 

A romantic book

romance8

The Queen of Romance and probably the ONLY books I’d voluntarily read with that kind of association.

 

 

A magical book

magical

The original Earth Sea trilogy.  While Le Guin has written more in this world, it was of completely different tone and style and never caught my fancy. I did think of putting this in the next category, as I read the first one as a pre-teen. But when I think of “magic” my mind springs to Ged and Tennar.

 

A childhood book

child1

child2

This was my favorite book in 4th grade. Probably a good thing I read an abridged version as I’m not sure I could have handled MacDonald’s wordiness back then.  This was everything a kid could want in a story: a beautiful princess, a brave miner boy, a magical castle, goblins and monsters.

 

A book I got as a gift

gift

The Cygnet Duology is the book that Mrs B gave me when we first met in real life back in ’06 or ’07.  I gave her the Hobbit. Besides both being dedicated Christians, we’re also both readers. Our idea of a good time is sitting next to each other on the couch reading books. I couldn’t ask for more than that!

 

A library book

lib1

lib2

 

Quite a few of my hardcovers are from libraries.  It is one of the reasons I stopped buying used hardcovers on Amazon. The sellers don’t have to list that it is from a library. A used library book has a ton more crap in it than just a regular used book. Not worth the hassle so now I buy it new unless it is impossible.

 

 

And that sums up that tag post. I’d definitely be interested in seeing books from all of your collections. (hint, hint)

RAGE AGAINST THE WHINY PANTS MOMMAS BABIES!! – errrr, The Naughty or Nice Tag

Because I am a responsible adult who goes to work every day on time, pays my bills each month, has a mortgage and generally am a productive member of my society, I have been told I am innately angry and am the source of all problems here in the United States.  Since I’m apparently SO angry, I’m going Full On Hulk Mode on this poor Tag. That will show everyone!

Thank you OrangutanLibrarian for giving me this outlet to vent my out of control rage that threatens to destroy my whole country. A grateful world thanks you!

 

Received an ARC and not reviewed it 

cross-box-clipart

Netgalley is EVIL. Because while the “words” might say you can review and rate however you want, we ALL know if you don’t review enough or positively enough, you’re going to get rejected. R-E-J-E-C-T-E-D-!-!-!  For whiny pants mommas’ babies, nothing is worse than rejection.

I, on the other hand, HAVE reviewed every book I read from Netgalley. But once they used a part of a review of mine, I stopped using them. My reviews are mine, not theirs.

 

Have less than 60% feedback rating on Netgalley 

cross-box-clipart

Pretty much the same answer as above. But honestly, what kind of person doesn’t have enough self-control to NOT request more books when they still haven’t read OR reviewed previous requests? You got it, whiny pants mommas’ babies!

 

Rated a book on Goodreads Devilreads and promised a full review was to come on your blog (and never did) 

cross-box-clipart

A man’s word is his bond. If someone can’t back their word up, they need to shut their piehole instead of deceiving and disappointing everyone who follows them. My only currency I have with online people is what I earn, or squander, relationally.  Somebody makes a promise and then doesn’t keep it? They just overdrew on the Bank of Bookstooge and Lenny the Goon is going to come for them and break their knee caps!

 

Folded down the page of a book 

tick-box

I have done this. Usually when I’ve lost my bookmark at work. Kind of hard to use a twig as a bookmark in the woods. At home, never. There are always bookmark materials around, I just have to not be a lazy git and get off my butt to get one.  Maybe nancy-pants mommas boys are too lazy, but that is why they are still boys.

 

Accidentally spilled on a book 

tick-box

This one, I have to confess, I have and I am so ashamed. I took a LIBRARY paperback book to work and put it in my book bag along with a thermos of iced water. The thermos top came off and soaked the entire book bag and all its contents, including the book. When I dried it out, it fluffed up to about twice its original size. I had to pay for a new book at the library. On top of that, it was an INTER-LIBRARY LOAN!!! Oh the mortification I felt that day. It has left a stain upon my very soul.

 

DNF a book this year 

tick-box

Of course! If someone isn’t dnf’ing books during the year, they’re either lying to themselves or putting up with sub-par drek because they don’t have a spine! I happen to have a spine and my drekometer is getting more and sensitive as the years go by.

 

Bought a book purely because it was pretty with no intention of reading it

cross-box-clipart

This is called buying a piece of art. Instead of being a dumbass, do the tiny bit of work necessary to find out who DREW that cover and then go buy a reproduction of it and hang it on the wall.  Support the artist, make a lonely wall look nice and spare the bookcase from having to support dumb-asseryness.

 

Read whilst you were meant to be doing something else (like homework)

cross-box-clipart

Back in MY DAY, my parents made me do my homework at the kitchen table just so I couldn’t goof off. None of this “working in your room” nonsense.  If someone can’t be bothered to buckle down and do whatever they are supposed to be doing at the moment, good luck keeping your job and getting a mortgage.  Then they get to live in a place run by a slumlord where rats and bedbugs abound! And all because they read when they weren’t supposed to. Let that be a lesson to everyone.

 

Skim read a book 

tick-box

Some authors don’t know when to shut the phrack up and get on with the supposed plot. Or the author is geeking out about Subject G (for Guns, for example) and like a 2 year old, expects everyone else to pay attention to THEIR interests.  Well, nancy pants whiny ass author-san, I don’t CARE. Get a move on!!!

 

Completely missed your Goodreads Devilreads goal

cross-box-clipart

While Netgalley might be evil, Devilreads is the devil incarnate. Devilreads sacrifices babies on little tiny altars every month. Devilreads believes that anyone who doesn’t fall right into their party line loves Hitler. Devilreads steals food from the mouths of hungry aboriginals from the Rain Forests. Devilreads puts lead into milk formula in China. I think you get the picture.

 

Borrowed a book and not returned it to the library

cross-box-clipart

That is STEALING!!! Every single responsible adult in the town/borough/whatever helped pay for that book with their taxes. Money doesn’t grow on magic money trees. It is created when someone works their backside off.

So if anyone EVER admitted to stealing a library book, I’ve got a dull spoon JUST FOR THEM!

 

Broke a book buying ban

cross-box-clipart

I’ve never had to institute a book buying ban. Because things like my mortgage, taxes, etc come first. Oh yeah, that little thing known as the grocery bill too. Huh, go figure.  I don’t have a magic refrigerator or a magic pantry that “magically” refill themselves.  So I buy books when I can afford them.  It is called being fiscally responsible. The lack of being fiscally responsible is what did Greece in and will eventually do the United States in.  But I won’t be a contributor to that downfall.

 

Started a review, left it for ages then forgot what the book was about

tick-box

Once or twice. Which is why I now write my reviews within 3-5 days finishing the book. Otherwise, why did I read it?

 

Wrote in a book you were reading 

tick-box

This is complicated. I am not an advocate of writing in books in general. However, there are times and there are books where it is the whole reason.

When Mrs B and I were courting we read a duology of books called “Just for Women” and “Just for Men”. We read the appropriate one for us and marked the heck out of the book. Questions, comments, thoughts, etc. Then we traded books and read the other book with an eye towards answering all the writings by the other. It made for a very good time and helped us learn a lot about the other gender that we simply had no idea about.

 

Finished a book and not added it to your Goodreads Devilreads

cross-box-clipart

I don’t use Devilreads but when I use similar services I always add the book to my collection.  What’s the point otherwise? I know why people do it, because they’re shallow, vain, self-centered gits who can’t do ANYTHING without wondering what others think of them. But I read and review for myself so I want to be as honest as I can in a public forum.

 

Borrowed a book and not returned it to a friend

tick-box

Yes, when I was 10 I borrowed one of the Little House on the Prairie books from my Aunt Kathy and Uncle Rick. They lived 6+ hrs away at the time and never saw that book again as far as I know. I can’t look them in the eye to this very day 😉

 

Dodged someone asking if they can borrow a book

cross-box-clipart

“No”. Say it with me now. “No”. See, it’s not that hard. If someone asks to borrow a book, a simple “no” suffices.  Lilly-livered pansy-panted wussy cowards are the ones who dodge.

 

Broke the spine of someone else’s book

cross-box-clipart

If I did that, I would buy them a new book. I wouldn’t walk up to a friend and break THEIR back, now would I? (that WAS a rhetorical question by the way) So why would I feel it was ok to do the same to their books?  What kind of monster inspired a question like this?  Howza ’bout I come over and smash somebody’s car window? Huh, huh? That’s what I’d do to anyone who broke the spine on one of my books.

 

Took the jacket off a book to protect it and ended up making it more damaged

tick-box

I JUST did this. I was reading Hogfather at work and kept the book in my bookbag (no thermos’s this time) and wanted the jacket off so it wouldn’t get torn. Well, I put it on my end table ……. and promptly put a full plate of food on it that night. The cover was as crushed as my dreams for being World Book Czar

 

Sat on a book accidentally 

tick-box

I do this quite often to my physical books. I’ll put it down on the seat of the van at lunch and then sit on it at the end of the day when we’re heading back. Thankfully, I NEVER leave a book open so I have not damaged a book by sitting on it. Chances are my bum takes more damage than the book.

 

 

Well, 9 out of 20 checkmarks means I am on the Good List. The World is safe. My Rage has Manifested and now I can go back to being mild mannered Bruce Banner.

Book Blogger Insider Tag

Tagged by Lashaan. Feel free to riot and mob, as long as you do it at his place, not mine!

 

1) WHERE DO YOU TYPICALLY WRITE YOUR BLOG POSTS?

Sitting on our couch, looking out at the gray and drab weather! If that view doesn’t cheer you up, you’re obviously not a good enough pessimist.

IMG_20181222_093131069_HDR

 

2) HOW LONG DOES IT GENERALLY TAKE YOU TO WRITE A BOOK REVIEW?

About an hour, maybe 2 if I get distracted. Either I’ll go down a rabbit trail of blogs or start paying attention to whatever I have playing on the tv in the background.

IMG_20181222_094236840

The Magic Box told me to put this picture on my blog…

 

3) WHEN DID YOU START YOUR BOOK BLOG?

This particular one I started back in ’13 when Goodreads started hiding or deleting reviews that didn’t meet their intentionally vague and pro-author/pro-selling guidelines, that they introduced without actually telling anyone.

My original book review blog is at Bookstooge.blogspot.com and that was started in 2005. However, even that blog underwent a name change to the Bookstooge brand and honestly, I can’t remember what it USED to be.

blogger

 

4) WHAT IS THE WORST THING ABOUT HAVING A BOOK BLOG IN YOUR OPINION?

The Invisible Reader. It depresses me more than some jackass writer expecting me to be his editor because I agreed to review his indie book. I simply don’t understand those who follow but won’t interact.

9d89d314ad7902ba5b4c6bc7df5ccd8e-powder-sean-patrick-flanery

But they don’t “like” me, whahhhhhhh!

 

5) WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT HAVING A BOOK BLOG IN YOUR OPINION?

The countless horde of followers that I can unleash at a moments notice to wreak havoc across the ENTIRE INTERNET!  Fear me, Internet, you have met your doom.

capture5

Also, a little flattery for your Great Leader goes a long way these days

 

6) WHAT BLOG POST HAVE YOU HAD THE MOST FUN WRITING SO FAR?

Definitely the Bookstooge Confessional and follow up Saint Bookstooge Gives Answer.  How can you resist a post that ends with such a horrifying gif?

tumblr_kublw0wjyk1qatgjgo1_250

Even now, I shudder at this nightmare inducing visage!

 

 

7) WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF BLOG POST TO WRITE?

Probably my reviews. They aren’t necessarily as fun or exciting to write as Tag posts or the misc posts I manage to spew out, but I couldn’t write misc posts 3 times a week, every week. I just couldn’t do it. This kind of post is icing ON the cake but my review posts are THE cake for me.

let-them-eat-cake

 

8) WHEN DO YOU TYPICALLY WRITE?

Saturdays and Sundays and whenever inspiration or desire strikes during the week.

 

4

Yep, that’s my mind, just exploding with pure awesomesauce!

 

10) HOW DO YOU WRITE YOUR BOOK REVIEWS? WITH A CUP OF COFFEE OR TEA? WITH NETFLIX? CUDDLED WITH YOUR FUR BABY?

Usually with the tv going in the background playing something from Prime. If it’s a Saturday, there will probably be a Bang next to me. Caffeine helps my brain run more efficiently you know.

bang

Super Creatine means this is a good as medicine, honest.

 

11) WHEN DO YOU WRITE YOUR BOOK REVIEWS? RIGHT AFTER FINISHING THE BOOKS? TWO WEEKS AFTER FINISHING THE BOOK?

Usually within 3 days of finishing the book. It might not post for 2-3 weeks, but if a review isn’t written within 5 days, all the salient details are GONE from my mind, just like the wind.

DFUfXRM

 

12) HOW OFTEN DO YOU POST?

3-5 times a week.  Pretty regularly unless Life happens, then it’s anyone’s guess.

And that about wraps everything up. Cheers!

#6degrees – from A Christmas Carol to The Terminator

Bookwyrm did another 6Degree Post and it reminded me I should do one too.

Starting with this book, lets see where we end up! (obviously, you know beforehand because of the title. I didn’t know where I was going to end up, so pretend you didn’t see the title and act completely surprised, please.)

 

d832456a6dd75924a6a790f4156fe839

 

A Christmas Carol.   The edition I read has a cover composed primarily of the colors Green and Red, appropriate for a Christmas book don’t you think?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

87d99b423210e3dc764821b48f989348

 

A series that is ALL ABOUT colors is the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks. I’ve been waiting for the final book since The Blood Mirror came out in ’16.  The Burning White, the fifth and final book, is supposed to come next year. May it be so!

 

 

 

 

 

sixthwatch (Custom)

 

A book that I have read that I was waiting for was Sergei Lukyanenko’s Sixth Watch.  Thankfully, I didn’t start the Night Watch series until 2015, so I only had a year to wait. My goodness, what great Russian Urban Fantasy.

 

 

 

 

134445b6fc140e37b553f2c6f86419da

 

I don’t like Urban Fantasy. Most of the time. Mainly because I’ve had more run-ins with books like Bitter Night than the types of UF that I end up liking.  Totally not cool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3620743

 

A “cool” book that I did read was Dr. Zhivago. And we’re talking Siberian Exile cold here, not just your every day Snoopy in Joe Cool sunglasses!

 

 

 

 

 

cover

 

Now, when I think of “Sunglasses” only ONE thing comes to mind. Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator!!! While the book wasn’t as awesome as the movie, it still was decent enough.

 

 

 

 

 

My goodness, from A Christmas Carol to The Terminator sounds like a title of a Dr. Who Christmas special. You know, back when Dr. Who was awesome with David Tennant? 😉

I’m beginning to think that I like this whole 6th Degree tag thing. I foresee it becoming a semi-regular feature here. Easy peasy and lets me talk nonsense without appearing like a complete idiot. Cheers!
