I tried, Trip-Sil but it kept landing in the big pond. Grandma Rogue is getting a bit weak I guess.

Oh jeez, I hadn't seen this thread. Internet < vacation time < alcohol. So I haven't been online much in the past two weeks.

Welcome, Rune! Long time no see!

So my audience for all the silly things I say just got bigger.. mouahahaha. jocolor

Heya, Triactus. How have you been? Smile

Ah, this feels like coming back home. A slightly dysfunctional, merry, carnival-all-year-round home with a well-stocked basement. Glorious! Very Happy

Been good Rune! How about yourself? I saw on the babbling thread that you're an undergrad. What field are you studying in?

Archaeology. Smile It's disheartening and sometimes awkward to still be an undergrad at 26, but 'tis what I get for choosing another character class.

Nice! Nothing against still be an undergrad at 26. A lot of people change careers and go back to school. I was lucky enough to change career with the same diploma. Smile But I liked university. I definitaly would have gone back if I had the money (living expense plus tuition is just too expensive).

Do you know the fantasy author Steven Erikson? He wrote the Malazan book of the Fallen series. His background is in archaeology and you really get a feel of the echoes from previous civilizations, that one civilization piles on the ruins of another. (and IMO, the Malazan series is one the best fantasy I've ever read).

Never stop learning whether it be formal or informal. Never stop questioning, seek the unknown and you may live as long as I have and be just as pesky. Smile

Heh, fortunately enough, one does not have to pay for tuition here. One of the few advantages of living in this country, because seriously, I find the social climate rather detrimental to what's left of my mental health. Thanks for the vote of confidence, by the way Smile! And for the book recommendation. Have not read it yet, but now I want to. And yes, archaeological knowledge does affect one's world-building skills. Most people only mention an extensive knowledge of history as a must for any fantasy writer, but honestly, it does not even begin to cover the problems one will face when creating a world.

Trip, awesome! What is he in? And you, Sue?

Thank you. Really, thank you. Your words mean a lot... and they strike a chord with me Smile. Ah, that calls for some T.S.Eliot (again) taken out of context (again) :

"We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time."

I studied for a Humanities degree which was a mixture of English and History.  I focused on theatre and film where I could and my dissertation was a one person play which I wrote and then performed using 2 very different performance styles.  In the written section I compared them (Stanislavski and Brecht).  

I also really enjoyed the English options of my degree, especially Post Colonial Literature and Creative Writing (which a group of us fought for as the University decided at the end of the first year to stop doing it as a second year option due to a lack of tutors). The theory content of the English half was fascinating - I loved Barthes and some of the anthropology was very relevant to theatre - ritual etc.

I then went on to do a Masters in Humanities, focusing on Popular Culture theory and film.  Where I could, I wrote about horror and Vietnam war films - 2 cinematic passions of mine.

I totally agree with Nakia's comment and although poor health has prevented me from doing what I intended with my qualifications, I try to use them where I can.  There are no theatres near me but I have a fab independent cinema where I live.  The guy who runs it is a horror film buff so I'm in good company Very Happy

That's a bit of a sore point!

He left his job and took a year out to spend time with me and Ashley, then he went to college for 3 years to study IT network support. 4 years of him not working meant that we were in a bad place financially. He got a part time job to get some experience in the field and then........decided to go back to his original job!

That's the short version. Let's just say I wasn't particularly happy with him

T.S.Eliot spelled backwards is kinda funny.

Sorry for being a bit naughty, I do love The Waste Land among other things so I don't mean anything by that. Wink

My first experience with Barthes was disappointing. I first picked up Mythologies when I was 8 expecting stories like Greek and Roman or Egyptian myths and all I got was something about Marlon Brando and a baffling cover featuring a Citroën DS (an obvious play on words since "DS" is pronounced like "déesse" the French word for "goddess" but it took me quite a few years to realize that). To this day I still (jokingly) blame my mother for letting that book lie around. study

I first started studying biotechnologies and food industries (specializing in cheese making) before going to university to study English literature and what we call "civilization" (which is a mix between cultural studies, politics, history, a bit of art and pretty much everything but the kitchen sink).

So I think I get what you're saying. Wink

Sue, whoah, that's really impressive. I mean, sorry to hear about your poor health, but damn, humanities! Theather! And you making the most of your situation! Sounds pretty badass. And stylish, which is quite probably the best combination ever. I admit I harbour somewhat similar dreams; was planning to enroll in one of those private music schools that teach opera singing, but decided to take the local equivalent of a second major (history) for a more rounded set of qualifications instead. Now I just take singing lessons whenever I can afford them, but in a few years, who knows? Very Happy

Trip, uh, I'm a terrible person for chuckling at this (and, generally speaking, not only for that, but let's at least pretend), but... Heh. Heh. Heh. Laughing

Carabas, ha! Would you actually believe that in my ten years of mentioning that name whenever possible I have never noticed? Ah, 'The Wasteland'. I still can't get over how magnificent it is, how true, how acutely beautiful. Or how aptly the motto was chosen. Or 'The Hollow Men'. Or 'Rhapsody on a Windy Night". Or that one bit in 'Whispers of Immortality'. 'And saw the skull beneath the skin'. I just... ah.

Heh, there's nothing like unleashing one's inner Marianne Dashwood on the unsuspecting Internet. *regains composure and walks away casually*. Wink

By the way, do you know James V.B. Thompson? His 'City of the Dreadful Night' strikes me as quite similar to 'The Wasteland'... albeit of a more innocent cast.

Heh, it sounds like a seemingly reasonable choice dying a miserable death after a fierce duel with a dream. And so it should be! Wink

The name rings a bell but I can't place it. I have to look into this. Thanks Rune. Very Happy
