    Settle an argument? Has there ever been a, Stephen King based film that featured any kind of "Yankee's" gear whatsoever? And if so, was the character/context "Evil"?

    I was never a runner but just last week I started running to work. It's only a few miles but I am doing it semi-barefoot (on minimal shoes) and despite being an experienced barefoot and semi-barefoot 'walker', running like that (without any heel strikes) on very hard surfaces is a very different experience because of the unfamiliar stress it imposes on the arches, the ankle joints, and the muscles and tendons of the lower leg. So you do have to work up to it slowly.

    I was also extremely impressed by the marathon attempt referenced in the posts above!

    In Stand By Me Gordy's brother gave him a Yankees cap before he died. But then Eyeball Chambers stole it from him and wore it.

    I wouldn't classify him as "evil" though. Just a normal teenager picking on his younger brother and his brother's friend.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    My wife has a nice gold necklace in which it's possible to put 1 or 2 pictures that he never used, and i thought that it would be nice ( we may not tell her it's from my wife's gramma, otherwise she may not accept it), but... any other suggestions?
    Nothing you could buy her would be as good as a visit from you and your girl.
    Same question with Mother's day : I obviously cannot send a card with "happy mothers day", so... just calling and maybe sending some fluwers?
    I know that it may seem like basic / dummy question, but it's a sensitive period....

    Fluwers are great. Don't forget the call. That's the important bit.

    So, I believe that many forum members are prog/rock/metal fans. I don't know if you guys know my fellow Dutchman Arjen Anthony Lucassen (best known for his conceptual space rock opera albums recorded under the name Ayreon) but if you're a music lover, check out this video that introduces his latest album. Arjen is known for working with some of the world's best rock singers and with every album he succeeds in bringing together impressive casts of characters. My wife and I are big fans

    "Space rock opera" is the perfect description. Some great atmospheric music passages, and the deep heavy parts that drop in are great...Reminds me a bit of the band Halloween.

    Default Seen these 'floating'about on facebook

    Put in spoilers in case anyone NOT wanting to see pennywise in any guise before the release of the film.

    Here's the recording of the tv news when they recorded in my house a couple of weeks ago. Not the best quality for the video and it's in Spanish, but it's better than nothing

    Chris Cornell - another great talent gone too early. Pipes like a fire-breathing dragon. Soundgarden led me through my late teens and twenties. Badmotorfinger is still, for me, one of the greatest heavy rock albums of all time.

    Fuck!

    Random Pet Peeve... All these small publishers seem to just print the same books over and over again a little differently. I have watched it happen time and time again which is fine I've gotten used to that but what annoys me is the petty emails that say "definitive edition" trying to trump the last copy that was published. Congrats... you added a short story, that was already published, into the same book so now you have the "definitive edition". meh just count your losses that you didn't think to do the book first and move on OR just do it, own it, and sell it as your take on the book without trying to lessen the other publisher's books.

    I agree with ya... And here is how I combated it. Last year as they seemed to be coming from everywhere... I just stopped collecting gift editions. They are the least nicest of all done... AND not signed by King. Other than IT and Salems by Centipede.. they either stay at their cover price OR sell for less than you paid! Also, my little book room was quickly running out of space. There would be no end to it. I had to make a choice and (for me anyways...) it was a really good one. I took all the money I got from them and bought S/L's

    That is awesome. Congrats to you both. 50 years of marriage takes love, compassion, compromise, and a willingness to commit to all things good and bad with your other half. What an amazing journey you both have been on together.
