    ID this shark

    Thinkin about a 180 for a shark

    Thinkin about a 180 for a shark

    Lord of the Rings has nothing on Star Wars in my opinion, and that includes the prequel trilogy as well, despite how fashionable it is to hate it. I still haven't seen the last Rings, but I did read all three books before the movies came out and so far I've liked the books more. Middle Earth...

    Star Wars Books

    I've just recently got into reading the Star Wars books as well. So far I've read Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter, Shadows of the Empire, and I just got Heir to the Empire. I loved both SotE and SH. Since you haven't read it yet, I recommend Shadow Hunter. I've also heard Shatterpoint was really good...

    What was your very first job?

    I'm at my first job right now. I'm a bag boy(or 'courtesy clerk' as they call it) at a grocery store. I bag groceries, push them out to your car, bring the cart back in, and then do it all over again.
