Independence Day Speech: Modernized

The fact that this is a flawless reflection of our current society is so sad.

Scots on Trump

Everything is so much better with angry Scottish slang. Cheetoh-faced, ferret-wearing shitgibbon is officially the best description of Trump. Ever.

Brexit Fiasco

I really didn't see this coming...I thought the majority would have more sense. What a shitstorm this is going to be. I thought that Americans had the western world monopoly on mass stupidity and ignorance but apparently the English were just hiding theirs better. These idiots are the equivalent of Trump supporters with the same "make UK great again even though we have no defnitive plans for how to do so" rhetoric. I desperately hope that Americans show more intelligence in November!

I legitimately laughed myself to tears.

The Codex Alera

I have nothing but praise for Jim Butcher's unique and inspired fantasy epic. In fact, as far as I'm concerned, it's the single greatest story of the genre and one of the best book series of all time.


The writing style of this series is smooth, descriptive and doesn't waste a word, the level of worldbuilding is absolutely incredible, and the plots are exciting on a level that I really can't convey. As enthused as I get about many good books, I think this is the first time I've ever actually cheered out loud, jumped out of my chair and smacked said book(s) on the couch yelling "HOLY SHIT" because it's just that exciting. The story builds up and up and up to the point where you finish each book saying "well, there's no way he can top that..." and then he does.

Furies of Calderon starts out a bit slow because there's simply so much to introduce, but it picks up about halfway through and plows ahead like a runaway steamroller, getting better and better with every book, each one bigger and more mind-blowing than the last.

First Lord's Fury, the grand finale, may be the single most epic thing I've ever read. I don't think I've ever rooted for characters as hard as I did for Tavi and Kitai. Their development from the first book to the last is really something else...they're almost completely different people by the end but it feels entirely natural as you watch them grow into these amazing, powerful roles. The supporting cast is strong as well, from Tavi's best friend, Max, to the fierce and unpredictable canim.

The Aleran universe itself is gorgeous, a perfect mish-mash of pure fantasy with the influence of ancient Rome. I've read each book 2 or 3 times now and they haven't ceased to impress me. Hands down one of my top recommendations for anyone who hasn't yet had the pleasure.
