The wiley bastard pulled it off, I see.   :lulz:

Like I said on the phone, if there's 4 lawmen chasing you, make sure there's only 3 prostitutes.  Lets you pick one guy off.

I'll bet the Undertaker just hates getting work without his "sport". Something tells me he'll be busy as hell by the end of this.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

We are by no means done with the Undertaker.

I was deliberately trying to avoid that.  I'm gonna have to change a phrase or two, because I can see what you're talking about.

you don't like the Dark Tower? Or you just don't want to be derivative?

I love the Dark Tower.  I'm just trying to tell my own story.

I'm having trouble getting more than 5 uninterrupted minutes to myself, so this may not be a thing until tomorrow or Wednesday.

I love the Dark Tower.  I'm just trying to tell my own story.

I've not read the whole DT series by far, but I remember the intro to The Gunslinger and was struck by a related vibe when I started reading this. I noted to myself that you had produced a haunting western feel with FAR less of the intricate description King used, as I recall it anyway.

In essence I think you've done much more storytelling with fewer words and have neatly succeeded in telling something very unique here.

All I can say is that this was worth coming home for. This is fucking good, Roger.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Your voice is really clear, here. IMO. Distilled.
