Yes, that is most definitely a movie poster.

Awesome Clone High episode. Love the intro, but not that familiar with the series. I heard they pulled the show because it was "controversial." Is that true? Tom Green's a hoot! I was good for the first 7mins of that, then Abe had to get all queer and gross me out.

Holy crap! Everything Dan Brown writes is true! Angels and Demons are fo real! Demons walk the earth, with their big pointy horns!

^^^one of the books I haven't finished. It's gonna take me a while to get back into it. Brown's work is alledgedly all true, yet there are many differences in opinions. To me, Dan Brown sounds very pompous. It'd be just as easy to say it's fiction (instead of mixing truth & fic) then let readers think, "I wonder..." But apparently, Dan Brown was the only one blessed with such intimate knowledge of the Templars, Catholic Church, and Illuminati...and he manages to get these secrets out without risk of life or limb???

Dan Brown is a hack who writes boring ****, the only redeeming quality he has is pissing off Christians.

That's why if you ever see him, 100 feet away you will always see either some mysterious looking assassin-type person, or a bunch of men in suits talking to headsets in their ears.

I read The Davinci Code and was thorougly unimpressed. It seemed to me that it was written just so Dan could make up a bunch of stupid plot twists and call it an interesting story.

That said, I don't like Umberto Eco's stuff either, because of the same thing. Putting so many little historical factoids in your book doesn't make it any easier to read you idiot. There were parts in Focault's Pendulum that were decent but overall it was dreadful slogging through it.

If you want to read something blasphemous go read The Satanic Verses instead.

Da Vinci Code sucked, but don't judge the rest of his books by that. A&D was actually quite good, and Digital Fortress IMHO even better. Reading Deception Point now.
