Tried reading them, but...
 

I never got into the Shannara books, myself, either.  I did follow the newspaper cartoon adaptation for a little while...   :P 

The Dragonlance Chronicles by Hickman & Weis I did read, and have thought would probably make a good set of movies in the Rings/Hobbit mode.  They were critically-acclaimed bestsellers, too. 

There have been other good fantasy novels in a similar vein.  I really think it's more important to capture the scope & tone of the Rings/Hobbit movies than to try and find a classic to adapt, tho.  After all, Peter Jackson & his team took lots of liberties with The Hobbit.  Maybe Hollywood really needs more Peter Jacksons...
Sword of Shannara came out right after re-release of Hobbit and LOTR. I read it right afterwards. The first three I've read several times. But this incessant teenager will change the world in book 30 just became too much. Only one book had an adult main character named Walker Boh, and he died in the end. I did like the Magic Kingdom For Sale and Demon books though. Adult characters.

I also read the Hickman & Weis books to complement the DragonLance modules. But I hated the character that could only count up to two.

Last three years have been great for movies. My collection of dvds and blurays has sure gotten larger.

I have to say that I am finaly able to make some nice 3d art, though it still takes me too much time and I still don't know how to make art and work other things at the same time. But I wanted also to say that from now on probably will not have that much time for art and will try to make something with DC. I wish I could work like Dinonykos, but if i could make something it would be good :). Will have to try and see how it goes.

Here is a band I was listening to lately called Florida Georgia Line, playlist of songs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oajuSNChUOo&list=PL7kvd6yFTZAdn5N__kfxbZlbVrbmosBb_&index=1

Rugby World Cup 2015 England :) it is after summer, here just few promo videos, I am hoping that this might be interesting to not just me :)

And :D today I got letter from State Sea Department and officaly I will have beach to run and be manager there (that means I need to clean the place, act as a lifeguard and do other needed things, I am hoping I will be able to open caffe there, but not sure for now). I actualy am curious how it will all be and will I be able to do it and there is option to renew contract for the 3 years then I will have to ask again to run it and make my payment offer. One more thing I will probably after summer have to move to Belgrade and finish some school. But for now I am just hoping that I will be able to sign the contract and do needed things, by that contract beach should be opened from 1st may but lets hope I can start it from 1 july :)

This all means I will have to be much more serious with DC/FRUA and learn how to use it and make something good with it. Also my wish is to make my own program like DC (if possible in Unity or VS or anything else that I can work with :)) and that means I will have to learn programming. I really feel stupid now that I am not able to do things I wish but I guess I need to learn lot of serious things before I can make something. I also want to say that I am glad that this place is here and it is really inspires me when I see so much creativity and good programs for RPG playing actualy possible and being developed, and I will just pray for those things to get better.

I have also been thinking about my DC Mod and I will probably try just to make it better and keep on working on it. Though I will not have that much time from now but I just need to start working with it again :) will post more of my progress soon.

Jurassic World is really good. 

I waited a long time to see this one because the previews made it seem kinda like:
I had an idea for a script once. It's basically Jaws except when the guys in the boat are going after Jaws, they look around and there's an even bigger Jaws. The guys have to team up with Jaws to get Bigger Jaws. I call it Big Jaws.
Peter Griffith, Family Guy

--And it kinda was, but still a great movie that maintains the tone of the Jurassic Park series.

To me the trailers look like a remake of Jurassic Park only with the Guardian of the Galaxy guy. JP had 6 big stars. JW has 1 up-and-coming star. I'll wait for the dvd.

Well it is going hard on my beach and not so good, I hoped I will continue to work on my DC mod, but for now I just want to sort things for my RPG system and working on it most of the time while there :/ Wish I could talk more about it all and my beach but not sure if people are interested to hear about that :)

Anyway here is a song I like:
Ross Lynch - On My Own (From "Teen Beach 2")

I'm wondering how Ant-Man is going to do. Looks like a quality Marvel movie and Hawkman is in it, so I'm guessing Ant-Man's in Avengers 3? It seems like a hard sell on excitement. Too many other movies about humans being small, the last one being King Kong. Not that I won't buy it on Blu-ray the moment it comes out. Still waiting for Avengers 2 and Tomorrowland to be released. Shame they quit making Marvel One-Shots. I had to rebuy several movies just to get them all.

And yes probably will not be able to do anything with DC for some time as summer is really busy now, anyway another song for that, wish I could make things like this:

Probably not Hawkman. You mean the Falcon.

The guy from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Apparently he got his wings fixed. Only onscreen a second or two, but I'm fairly certain it's the same guy and hero.

My Lap Top refused to work today so I have drawn a nice map, not yet finished but almost :). Probably will use it for DC.

Just some tutorials about map drawing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6V902YqU94

Ant-Man is a little slow starting but is very good.  Michael Douglas lends it some important gravitas.  The beautiful Evangeline Lilly, late of the Hobbit trilogy, is well-served by her role.  The Falcon's cameo is a highlight. 

Terminator: Genisys is an enjoyable diversion, but the franchise feels as old as Arnold.  Jurassic World did a much better job of injecting new life into its.

I assume the movie ends with some clue about the next Marvel Movie, like all the other one's did from Iron Man on? Avengers, Thor, Captain America, or something else? And please don't say Howard the Duck!!!  ;D

Heh  :P  There are two teasers, one after the flashy credits and one after the long rolling one.  And, yes, one of them is for Captain America: Civil War.   ;)
