Nightingale tried to make sense of the manuscript. It was disjointed and strange. He didn't understand half of it, but it all rang true, impossibly true.

He took out his hip flask when he reached the page that described how he reached the page that made him take out his hip flask.

It wasn't the booze that made his mind reel.

"Most people wish they were doing something more interesting with their lives. So they go home and they watch television shows about people they can never be, or they read books about fantasy worlds they'll never inhabit, or they get on to the Internet and take on a persona, either on a message board or in a role-playing game, and they while away their free time pretending and then wake up the next day and head back to the cubicle maze."

Michael Westen just summed up the entirety of my life in one paragraph. Whoo-fucking-hoo.

...Yeah, I'm lame.

It turned out Leiter was from Texas. While he talked on about his job with the Joint Intelligence Staff of NATO and the difficulty of maintaining security in an organization where so many nationalitites were represented, Bond reflected that good Americans were fine people and that most of them seemed to come from Texas.

Thank you, Mister Bond. -bows- Thank you very kindly. ^_~

Here's a fun little excerpt from the Batman novel Inferno by Alex Irvine. It's amusing.

Damn. Note to self: I need to write up a book list of this year. Keep forgetting. Or don't feel like it at the time I think about it. I should do it now. Meh.

Here's a rather long excerpt from the Iron Man novel (written by Peter David). I wrote it up for someone wanting to know more about Pepper, and thought I would share further. Enjoy~!

I've never seen someone fail so spectacularly. )

"The highest possible form of treason," said Minton, "is to say that Americans aren't loved wherever they go, whatever they do. Claire tried to make the point that American foreign policy should recognize hate rather than imagine love."

"I guess Americans are hated a lot of places."

"People are hated a lot of places. Claire pointed out in her letter that Americans, in being hated, were simply paying the normal penalty for being people, and that they were foolish to think they should somehow be exempted from that penalty."

--from Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.

Apply to all mankind. Amen.

2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5.Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

Actually, a total of four of them had been entangled.

By the time the wire guns started going off, D was already in midair.

The glint of the Hunter's blade as he brought it down with one hand made Gilligan think of two things inside the machine's interior. He'll never break through, he first assured himself. But then he thought, No! Not there!

Yes, there.

"It's about seduction," Clark said to the shiny new faces in the auditorium, catching Ding's grin in the back of the room and cringing.

. . .

"Gee, Mr. C., does that mean seduction is okay?" Ding asked.

"Only when you get paid for it, Domingo."

"Had you going for a second, didn't I? You know," van Damm went on, "I figured out what we really missed when we set this country up."

"Okay, I'll bite," Jack said, eyes still closed, and finding the humor in the moment. Damn, but Arnie knew how to run a classroom.

"A court jester, make it a Cabinet post. You know, a dwarf--excuse me, a person with an unusually large degree of vertical challenge--dressed in multicolored tights and the funny hat with bells on it. Give him a little stool in the corner--'course, there isn't a corner here, but what the hell--and every fifteen minutes or so, he's supposed to jump up on your desk and shake his rattle in your face just to remind you that you have to take a leak every so often, just like the rest of us. Do you get it now, Jack?"

Shit yeah!

"Eat shit and die," the male member of the team whispered, watching the two contact lines close on the display.

This being a quote from Debt of Honor. What's happening at the time is an American boomer (ballistic missile submarine) is attacking a Japanese sub and the sonarman above is watching the kill on his screen. They get the first underwater kill since WWII. Ain't it nice? I think so. I'm almost finished with the book, but I keep getting distracted. And if I read it at night I'm gonna end up staying up too late to finish it. Gah!

Anyway, I read this line and was instantly amused. You see, in Gears of War Dom says this line if I'm not mistaken. It's either him or Cole (maybe even Baird?), but I'm leaning towards Dom. Either way someone in Gears says it and I can just hear the phrase exactly as it is pronounced in the game when I read that. Heh. I like it.
aisuyoukai: (Vincent - Turk)
Perhaps even the best part of any of Tom Clancy's novels. Hell, possibly his best work ever.

And it is when Clark and Oreza meet in Debt of Honor.

You look like you've seen a ghost... )

Yes, that simple a scene. But you see... there is a lot of history in the work of this meeting. If you only read Debt of Honor you definitely wouldn't get it. I mean, it somewhat explains the fact that Clark has a new name and all and that Oreza saw "Clark" die. But there's just so much more to it than that.

And that is what makes it so f-in' awesome.

Should I explain in a full rant? I think I shall.

Obsessive Rant )
aisuyoukai: (CSI:Miami Horatio - Heart H)
Horatio Caine sat in a back booth waiting for DEA agent Jeremy Burnett, nursing a second cup of coffee, wondering why he didn't eat here more often--the food was good, in its greasy spoon way, and the coffee gave a guy a real jump start on the day.

Idly, he watched a miniskirted, mesh-stockinged trio of transvestites at the next table trying to look nonchalant as one of them passed a tiny folded piece of paper to another across the table.

Oh yeah, he thought, smiling wryly to himself. Now I remember why I don't eat here more often.

"By the way," he said over the rim of his cup, not looking at them. "I'm the heat."

One of them turned to him and said, "Yeah, and I'm Britney fuh--"

The epithet caught in the transvestite's throat as Caine held up his badge, still without looking at them.

Turning toward the counter across the room, the nearest one raised a hand and said, "Check please!"

Caine couldn't help but chuckle.

--Max Allan Collins, CSI: Miami novel Heat Wave

Yes, there are books. And yes, I have bought one. (Only one for now.) And absolutely yes, I am a geeky-rabid-fangirl. XP XD

I don't care how many times I read this book, every time 'Zamamee hands over his identity disk I shall forever think of Tron. LOL

Ok, so I finished Nylund's book last night. In fact, that post at about 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning was me finishing up the last, short Epilogue chapter. Heheh. I was about a three-fourths through with it when I started reading last night, but couldn't put it down to go to sleep. So I finished it.

So now I'm finishing my reread of The Flood. I hope to finish the Acorna series after that, with the rereads of the rest of the Halo novels interspersed. I know. I'm weird. ^^

"In the last twelve hours, he's killed me three times." -Jack Potter from A Signal Shattered by Eric S. Nylund.

One day, we will be able to say that. LOL. Well, according to this book! Haha!

Dude, I really love this thing! All the science and shit really hurts my head when they get really into it, but it's totally awesome. And addictive. Nylund writes in a style that keeps you rivetted--you can't put the book down. Everything happens so fast, and it's all exciting. Oh, man. I love it!

But seriously... it's so awesome to say that phrase. Hahahahahaha!

"So, what's the plan?"

"I'm going to finish counting to ten."

"Oh yea? Well to me it looks like a golden shiney wire of hope." -Barret from FFVII

I absolutely love this quote. It's always stuck in my mind as a wonderfully typical Barret thing to say. It's so amusing it's not even funny. I've even tried to use it as a reference in conversation before. Least to say no one got it, but it felt good anyway. XD

So, yea... I'm currently re-playing FFVII right now. It's beautiful. I love it. I always will, but I just have to say that. ^^ Even though it's graphics are old and I've played it a million times, I will never, ever grow tired of it. It's simply too awesome.

And when I'm not playing FFVII for the umpteenth time through, I'm engaged in Ookami. That game also simply just rocks. I love it to death! It is very beautiful, art- and music-wise, as well as story. And the amusement of playing as a pretty white wolf will never cease to keep me happy. I love Ammy. She's such a fun character. And it's just plain fun.

"Die?" Kurt laughed. "Didn't you know?" he told the Elite. ". . . Spartans never die."

Memorable quotes from my current obsession. The excerpts are taken directly from the second novel, The Flood. I'm sure I'm not through yet...
