AND NO HATING ON EYES OF THE DRAGON, ASHLEY. It's really good and involves a dollhouse, kthx. Plus he wrote it for his daughter because she didn't like his previous gory-scary books.
It's THAT that idea of him as a "shit-stirrer" that makes me find him less significant overall. I don't quite get it. Plus, then you mention characters from The Dark Tower and I just feel like "Robert Smith Cannot hear you".

That's probably one of the main reasons I find it HILAAAAAAAAAAAARIOUS. Liek I said last night, I like the story, I hate the writing style.

Also, Ash, if Wizard & Glass is bothering you that bad, you can skip over the backstory and go straight back to the ka-tet. I found it to be easier to read the second time around, when I wasn't in such a rush to get back to the main characters. It would've made a good stand-alone book.

You know my OCD won't allow for that.

I don't like how one of the thread tags is 'drunkposting', but I'm not drunkposting!

This is providing me with more entertainment than the album itself did.

Best part is, the blog I downloaded it from gives all the 2009 details and you wouldn't know until you've downloaded it that it's different.



What now, then?

What year is it from, btw? Mid-80s, right? I was reading On Writing recently and have began to wonder if/how much his writing changed after he got sober in the late 80s

I'm reading Cujo right now (it's making me want a St. Bernard, which is kinda absurd) and he's said he actually doesn't remember writing it, he was so wasted at the time that it's all a blur, which he regrets because he likes looking back on his memories of writing each book.

EDIT: Eyes of the Dragon is from 1987, same year as his intervention.

If it's just the song on YouTube with the cover and no actual video, those never require much bandwidth and I can keep browsing.

You folks don't have this original version? And if it's from 2008, why are we considering it as a 2009 album then?

Like I said hte other day, the only thing that bothers me THIS MUCH about Eyes of hte Dragon is how childish the writig-style is, but, given what you've just told me, I give it a bit of a break, just as I do the same for Tommyknockers and Dreamweaver.

Drugs are bad mmk?

Sure, let's try that, let me ssee if Ican find it in playlist form.


The album came out in 2008 but it's not the FULL albumfor one thing. For another, no one really heard it. For a third, they were signed with ...interscope? Capitol? and said record company quickly took the album down so they could revalmp it and rerelease it. I think they were thinking, as was I, that Hockey was going to be HUGE.
