~*~ Batman's Shameful Secret ~*~
Reppin': muscles like this?
"Urrrrsulllaaa!!" Was there ever a comic book where some guy died and screamed out "Ursullaaaa!"? Because if so maybe he was calling out someone's name or maybe he was just dying really bad.
(Ursula is a terrible name is what I'm trying to say.)

Reppin': Mr. SM Holocaust
You may be interested to know that people other than social mutants regularly read books.
There are probably only like 4 of them out there, but they do exist.
Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey-the new Chuck Palahniuk novel - The master of quirky characterization, novel situations and shock lit is back with a new work called Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Caseyt. Mixed reactions abound as people realize that on a long enough timeline, Chuck Palahniuk's writing starts to read the same.
Newbie fantasy reader looking for suggestions - Forums user StrikerJ steps forth and calls to the Book Barn Nation with a 'quest: he wants a new fantasy series to read. This isn't just any request thread, each Knight of the Barn must meet his criteria and those who fail will be condemned to read books about scimitar-wielding Drow elves. Heeding the call, gallant Book Barners from all reg dates unite to meet the ennobling criteria. All goes well until the heroes are menaced by an enemy that could tear the thread asunder or make it more powerful than it was before.
"Its a sad fact, but most novelists are horribly formulaic, especially fantasy authors… most of the books invariably consist of the same basic concept with a few plot changes," intoned Kizeesh, Fantasy Writer Bane.
No rings to find, no riddles to solve, no dreamquests of unknown unknowable horrors from beyond. It's just a war of words to complete the 'quest and provide a good read that would look awesome airbrushed on the side of a van.
Reasons you stopped reading a book - Everyone has their breaking point. Maybe Terry Goodkind got a little ambitious and ruined a perfectly good rape scene with a plot or maybe the novelty of every woman in a Gertrude Stein book being at least bi-sexual has worn off and all you're faced with is every sentence repeated three to five times. It could be that you've been struck to the floor with the sudden clarity of vision that Tom Robbin's career is a boot stomping on a typewriter and publishing the output every set number of pages. Forever.
The Book Barn is not here to judge you. Just let it all out and tell us about why you couldn't continue on.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows THREADWATCH WEEK 2 - Like a plate of delicious roast owl, all parts great and small are still being picked over in this popular thread about the conclusion to the Harry Potter Saga. Some things we've learned since last time:
-Hufflepuff, the equivalent of the English department at a university, is a catchall for people not evil enough for Slytherin but not possessing the nobility needed for Gryffindorf.
-Voldemort was conceived from a loveless union.
-You can buy action figures of Luna Lovegod with a removable robe.
-When in doubt, give characters depth by alluding to suspicious activities during WW2.
-There's such thing as "ironic fanfic"
GBS, let's post our favorite form of cholesterol! Do you need motivation for that diet? Do you want to never feel like eating again? Then check out this thread where we discover some of the horrible, horrible things that goons eat. You want an example? How about someone eating a $.99 bag of chili cheese Fritos as dipped into a block of cream cheese.
PRON HAUL: and you will know USA by the trail of dead Ron Paul time again, how exactly can someone still support DR Ron Paul when he has voted against an anti-genocide bill? I'm not sure but people still are.
---CRAP AVATARS--- Almost 100 pages of the worst avatars on the forums. Oh and if you think you're being "witty" by posting your own avatar I have only one thing to say. Go fuck yourself.
Goons discuss their most embarassing moments (hint: pants shitting) Why people admit these things is totally beyond me. I prefer not to dwell on embarrassing moments. Embarrassing moments like: "I was blowing my friend when his mother walked into the room with a pile of laundry, placed it neatly on his bed and walked out without saying a word. At least not until dinner time when she said, in front of several other people, "would you like some more meat or are you done for today?" -- I hadn't started eating yet." Uh huh.
Goons defend the obliteration of individual liberties Wondering what that individual liberty being obliterated is? CORPSE FUCKING! Yes, the person that posted this thread believes that people should be allowed to fuck corpses.
goons.wmv Danny Maniac graces Helldump with a stunning tribute to all those wonderful goons out there.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
