    In retrospect, I really wish I had held off on taking a dump before I went to pick up my drugs today. I then could have saved it for the counter @ the ShopRite pharmacy...

    How hard is it to enter correct insurance info? I do not work in the RX field, but I imagine the level of difficulty is somewhere between pouring a glass of milk and itching your balls.

    Hey hey hey, how's it going everyone? You'll have to fill me in on what I've missed.... it was not my intention to be away for so long, but I'm been unable to log in. Literally. As far as I can surmise, it's because of travelling around this backwater country. Every time I try, I'm told that I cannot be connected to this site (it happens with a lot of sites, but thankfully not pornhub or redtube :p ).... I've tried different browers, my tablet & my phone, and even different computers and for some reason it's always the same. I've also tried all of the recommended tips I've found. But it's lowdown on my list of priorities, I barely have time to think these days. But I have some down time, figured I'd try my luck, and voila! So I'm gonna get some browsing in before I lose access again :)

    I've missed you guys :D

    Welcome back @Roland of Eld. Are you looking forward to The Dark Tower movie as much as I am?

    It would've been easy to cast Matty as Roland and Idris as The Man in Black. I'm intrigued by the role reversals.

    Thanks, I'll try... Seems like not much is happening around here... so basically like the whole of Season 7 . Just point me in the direction of a topic/thread that you think needs some over-the-line humour inserted, and I'll try. But no promises. I'm an angry man these days, the whole internet thing makes even posting a chore sometimes

    I'm sorry to report that I am not. I'm afraid that it may have been too Hollywoodised. That was always going to be the case I guess, because there are some really weird things in the book... but I liked the idea of it more as a TV show, because then they could've gone into it better without needing to fill it with OTT action to try and make it a Blockbuster. Adaptations are always tricky, I mean just look at how Preacher has been bastardised. 16 years I waited with pure excitement every time there were rumours of whoever looking to adapt it, and instead we get a couple of hacks trying to make something cool and really just pissing all over it. My faith in adaptations is close to zero... so I'm incredibly cynical at this point and almost certain they'll fuck up the DT.


    And for me, that began with the casting of Idris. The first thing I need to make clear, is it's not a race thing. I don't care if they make Roland black, but he needs to still be Roland. Idris is wayyy too cool! Seriously, I love Idris, but he's a big guy. He has a lot of power in and around him, and he's the cool casting choice. What I loved about Roland was he wasn't a big guy; he didn't tower over everyone and look like it would take a tank to knock him over. He didn't exude power or strength. He was average, almost slight of frame; but unnaturally strong, and the power was all in those blue eyes. And I loved the image of him with long hair and straggle from the length of time travelling. I guys Idris carries a pair of clippers in his grow-bag! (Idris with an unkept afro would've been great! ). I always pictured Viggo as being the perfect guy to play him, based on the description in the books. And when I saw the road, I just thought it was perfect.

    So with the casting of Idris, you kind of lose something with Roland, the mythical supernatural touches that surround him because of his heritage. You'll also lose so much stuff with Susannah.... there was great conflict in both sides of Susannah's personality one contained violent racism towards Roland (and Eddie), and the other was still mistrustful of Roland partly because of his skin colour. So when Detta flips out now, it'll be Eddie who bears the brunt. Or they'll reverse it and Susannah will be white and mistrustful of black people, but then it'd just seem wrong and I guess too many people would be up in arms. Or they'll just change the characters story completely and we'll get no split personality or Susannah being two of the three that Roland was supposed to draw. Just like we'll probably not get choosing the Man in Black over saving Jake, which I really hope we do.

    Really, I'm not a purist. I personally love the idea that it's a continuation, it's the repeated quest and even that it's on a different path. They can change as much as they want to make a good story; but changing too many things about the characters and the dynamic will cause them to lose the essence of the story, so I'm very apprehensive.

    Detta can still insult Roland by calling him an Uncle Tom, a race traitor, a sellout, the N word, etc. I think the film makers and Idris can make it work. I hope they cast good actors as Susannah and Eddie if they decide to do a film about the ka-tet.

    Maybe. Though it does remove the element of her instant uncertainty about the white man who took her away. We'll see. You're right, casting is key. I was really peeved when I heard that Jesse from Breaking Bad was rumoured to be in contention for Eddie. He was great in BB, but terrible in NFS, and I just can't see him as Eddie. I don't know what it is. It jut felt like "oh yeah, he played a junkie here, so he's perfect!" and I think it was the lack of consideration that got me! :D

    And they must add the ka-tet. The series would be nothing without them. Even Oy.
