    WELCOME TO ALL THE NEW MEMBERS! Please make yourselves comfortable and join in the discussions!

    There WAS a lot of beer drank that evening. I don't keep in touch with Jesse as much as back then, but I will have to say that was a splendid evening!

    Oh, hush now, Bill and Jean.



    D, well, I hope Jesse is doing well.

    Didn't we also talk with Maita on the phone that evening from the pub? (I have no recollection of her TDT screenname that others would recognize.)

    There must be pics of that evening out there somewhere. I can't even remember what year that was.

    Anyway, man, that was a good night - although I was pretty beat going to work the next day.

    She's around on Facebook. Problem is that I rarely go on FB.

    answer any or all and add your own questions.

    I'd love to perhap' ask all kinds of existential questions, then, but that might be too deep to just start right up with, so I will wait for that moment, thanks...



    How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    I was always a wanderer myself in the lands of the Dark Tower, but I did not know that until I a) began by reading S. King's works to begin with and b) decided that supernatural Westerns like the Gunslinger saga (now known to you all as the Dark Tower saga) were trig.

    Who is your favorite charcter?

    Charcter, charcter...I could guess charter and charcoal. Either might be somehow sensible, you tell me. Maybe you want to know who my favorite *c h a r a c t e r* is.
    Dark Tower books: They are all lovely, somehow, each important and giving. But the gunslinger is only a catylyst, maybe, for more important folk. I am captivated personally by the good peoples of the lands of the Dark Tower the most, by the folken. I have met the folken in the lands of the Dark tower, journeying with Roland ever so quietly, only a cypher, not even seen to him. And yet, somehow, I am them.

    What is your favorite book?

    You task me far too hard with that question. All of them.

    How old are you?
    44.

    Where are you from?
    :giggle: A River. It's lake had the name Ithaca. Then it went between two cities, in my when, Mpls/St. Paul.

    do you have a nickname?

    Shee! What a question! Sometimes, it has been Lorzilla, and at others, the Lorinator. Now, it's Mommie.

    Hello all. How did you discover the Dark Tower?

    I was directed to the audiobooks by a coworker with the very SK-grand cast sounding name of Lucas Roth (ranchhand at the Rocking B). That's 4 years back, and I have been listening to them pretty much continuously since then. The Dark Tower seems to kindle the same wild excitement I felt when I first saw "The Valley of Gwangi" as a kid; cowboys+dinosaurs = cowboys+thinnys. Guns, magic and slo-trans engines. YES!

    Who is your favorite charcter?

    This question requires a 2-part response. Main Character - Oy, because he is in fact the true unsung hero of the Ka-Tet, ever being omitted by King in his description of the group's line-up during their adventures ("Jake, Callahan and Eddie crossed the rectory yard, leaving Roland to palaver with the Manni folk." Did Oy just stop being there?) The only times I get teary eyed in the Dark Tower are when George Guidall gives voice to Oy's pleads to 'Ake ("Go on. You mind me now." "Taaab." - jake leaves oy with the mannifolk in doorway cave, song of susannah) Supporting Character(s) - Gasher, Coral Thorin, Sheriff Avery (Herkimer; by the gods, what a name!), Sheb (there's a guy on youtube named Tom Brier sight-reading nyan cat on an upright that is Sheb to the life in my mind's eye; all he needs is some sweat.), Blaine the Mono, Wayne Overholser.

    What is your favorite book?

    It's a tie between Wizards and Glass & Wolves of The Calla. I've never read any westerns, but any I read on my way to the clearing will ultimately be benchmarked against these two epics. both seem to stand on their own as completed cycles, rather than episodes in a series. If I couldn't convince someone to start at the beginning, I would direct them to these two. One could dislike The Dark Tower overall and still be drawn in by these two fables.

    How old are you?
    45, but time is slipping here.

    Where are you from?
    I was born in Honolulu, but I'll lay my guns in the ground of Fort Lauderdale Florida, if it do you fine.

    do you have a nickname?
    I actually heard someone say in reference to me "go ask The Five, he'll know where it is", but call me jonny, I beg.

    If I am forced to pick just one it would have to be Roland. I love them all really.
