    You know what really grinds my gears? When bands release albums that have that put that little "hidden track" on the end, but put several minutes of silence between the hidden track and the last song.

    Yeah, we get it, Band, there's something else there. We're not playing fucking records or tapes anymore. There's a digital counter that shows you went to the next track and are still counting the seconds. I don't have the fucking patience for this shit.

    I was more interested in the more hidden tracks where you have to rewind from a certain song (usually the first) to hear it.

    with increased digital technology, it should be possible to design a CD with a song only reachable if you, like, Up (volume), Up, Down, Down, left right left right... or something.

    Stop comparing Daywatch the movie to Daywatch the book! They cover different things!

    That would be like saying "Hey, you know what rocks more than Two Towers the book? Fellowship of the Ring, the movie."

    Except those have different names.

    Night Watch the book by Terry Pratchett and Night Watch the movie have the same names. But nobody's comparing those, are they?

    Day Watch the movie takes place during Night Watch the book. To compare Day Watch the movie with Day Watch the book is stupid, because they are entirely different plots.

    The newest Ok Go album has a 37 minute track of silence. I don't really understand...
    Oh, wikipedia tells me that it is a 37 minute track of pure creepy.
    "9027 KM", which is not listed on the album sleeve, is a 35-minute track of singer Damian Kulash's girlfriend sleeping, included on the US version of the album. He says there is good reason for it, but as of now, fans do not know why, except for a discovery by sherib on the official OK GO forums, which showed that the distance between Los Angeles, California and Malmö, Sweden was 9027 Kilometers (KM).[citation needed] It has been rumored that the track was added to pad out the CD so that their label could not use the extra space to add DRM.

    If this is true, then OK Go is exempted from my wrath.

    There is a puzzle in here somewhere. Or a koan.

    It's a simple statement of fact

    It is an hypothesis, which, I speculate, rests upon some empirical bases.

    The first part of the book is about a character that could have been interesting but is killed off.

    The second bit isn't about the Day Watch, it's about someone being guided by the Day Watch but ultimately controlled by the the Gloom and entirely unrelated to both sides or even the Inquistition. Meanwhile we're spending time on the Night Watch taking a fucking vacation.
    I haven't read the third story because the above reasons.

    Except those are by different authors and not related in any way at all. Keep trying and you'll eventually come to the correct conclusion that it is reasonable to compare two directly related pieces of media that have the same name, and that what is stupid is to give them the same name when they are in fact completely dissimilar in plot.

    That sucks. Which part of your legs? Calves? Because the last time I ran was for some 5K breast cancer thing last year and I couldn't walk normal for a week after because my calves were totally wrecked. Calves take a while to get back in order.

    Is there any good reason my legs should be so terribly painful? The last time I went jogging was three nights ago, and it didn't hurt at all then. It's just gotten progressively worse, even on the days of inactivity. I feel like they're literally just turning to ash. Just getting from the chair to the bathroom now requires a good deal of bracing against the wall. :/

    EDIT It's mostly the calves yeah, I guess they're just being bitchy. My ankles hurt too, but I know that's my own fault for setting them myself [improperly] after numerous teenage injuries.

    The first and second parts of Day Watch are the only places in the series where you get to see the behind-the-scenes portion of the actual Day Watch. The Mirror is invited into the Day Watch headquarters, and he interacts with the Day Watch people. He's not "ultimately unrelated" to both sides; he's a key portion of Zabulon's plot in the book.

    Twilight Watch has a lot about the Inquisition, if you're interested in finding out how that works.

    Yes, it was stupid to give them the same name. It's still fucking retarded to compare them in terms of which has better content, because the content is completely different in each medium.

    You don't eat anything, therefore your body doesn't have anything to live off of, so it starts consuming itself, including your muscles. There are a shitload of muscles in the legs. So, you jog, you walk everywhere, you have a fast metabolism, you burn a bunch of calories, then you don't eat anything; the energy has to come from somewhere.

    So I'm eating myself.

    ...

    Alright. We'll figure a solution for this out. One of the diet websites I use has a calculator that doesn't just count calories from food, it counts calories from exercise. So, in order to not eat myself, I just need to not have a negative balance. Honestly, it's a freak occurrence I was going negative at all if I was, I try and stay around 600 calories a day.

    Seriously.

    I'm pretty sure most of the 30+ pounds of muscle I lost from dieting was from my legs. Considering leg muscle is less important as your body becomes lighter, it's a pretty obvious place for it to steal from anyways.
