    Default The Arts Chat Thread


    There isn't a thread just to discuss stuff generally eg movies/TV shows/books/art/music so I figured I'd make a thread. This isn't intended to override the current threads dedicated to these topics, but to provide a chat for all of them in general.

    I did not know Neil Gaiman until American Gods (the series). In my defense (now I know he is mega famous), there is not much of his material available in Spanish, he is not very popular around here. Interesting stories, and it seems that they will adapt another of their books, How to talk to girls at parties. The trailer does not seem very attractive to me (on the other hand the soundtrack seems promising).

    Besides from American Gods (the book) which I didn't like very much, the only thing of his I've read is Good Omens which is a great book he co-wrote with Terry Pratchett (the Discworld author).
    Basically its about the apocalypse which an angel and a devil are working together to stop because they don't want their existance to end, meanwhile the four motorcyclists of the Apocalypse are stirring stuff up, and the "incredibly accurate (yet so highly specific as to be useless) prophecies of Agnes Nutter, 17th-century prophetess, are rapidly coming to pass." It has some similarities to Pratchett's Small Gods which is also a great book that turns all of the ritual and stuff about religions on its head.

    I would recommend a short story called Snow, glass, apples. Really original and weird.

    How can a commissar create something as wantonly heretical as this Chat thread? It stands as a blatant challenge to the orthodoxy of the One True Chat

    I'll bite.

    Holy the past couple of days has been crazy in regards to cancellations. I can't remember a similar year outside of maybe the Writer's Strike season.

    I will never forgive Starz for cancelling Ash vs Evil Dead but on the other hand it couldn't possibly have had a better ending. I expect they'll do the same to Counterpart at some point as that can't possibly be very cheap to make.
