16:18 - PocketMetal Ok, that's fine. It took me 9 months to read it but it was literally the most life-changing experience of my life, I don't regret a second of it.
15:55 - Zaphod Nope, and I don't intend to. I could go on and explain why, but it'd take me multiple shouts and I'm not really feeling like explaining my opinion on modern epic fantasy. So let's just say the series is too long for me.
15:45 - PocketMetal I like modern fantasy the most, have you read Malazan Book of the Fallen?
15:43 - Zaphod I usually read fantasy and sci fi, but most modern epic fantasy doesn't do it for me.
15:38 - PocketMetal I usually read epic fantasy, it was even harder for me to suddenly go to space.
15:31 - Zaphod It might also have to do with the fact that the last book I did read was Dune and that was one of the best sci fi books I've ever read.
15:29 - Zaphod I'm still on the first book. It's hard to get through for me, but that might have more to do with the fact that I haven't read a book in 4 months (!) (I usually read quite often)
And why not? In an effort to somehow put their names on more product, rock legends Kiss have purchased a Los Angeles-based Arena League Football Team. For those who do not follow American sports, Arena League Football is basically a low-budget version of the National Football League (NFL). The team is called LA KISS of all things and will even make use of the band's logo.
The team is set to start play next March in Anaheim's Honda Center.
Gene Simmons said in a statement: "As a fast-paced, high-action band, this partnership with the AFL was an obvious fit for us. With Arena Football, you are much closer to the action - sitting in the front row is like putting a folding chair on the hash mark of an NFL game - and it's one of the only sports where you can experience this level of intensity. Attending an LA KISS game in 2014 will be similar to a live KISS show, with thrilling, heart-pounding action."
"The whole idea of an alternative to what has perhaps become a corporate sport is very intriguing, and resonates with us," Paul Stanley added. "We've always tried to be a band that relates to everybody, and the AFL is built on that whole premise."
"This is a great business venture for Kiss. It's fantastic to have a team named after the band and it is a privilege to be able to support LA and bring the experience home," says Don McGhee, Kiss manager, who facilitated the new partnership.
