Virtual Reality Gaming - The OASIS

Question. Am I the only one who would love to experience a game like this with a full haptic suit and a virtual reality headset to be able to fully immerse myself in another world? I don't think I would be addicted to it like it can become for some people I'm sure, but just the experience of it woul...

Re: Music in Your Area of the World

Kalimba! Is that what that's called! I played on one once back in 2016 for this fun music thing I was doing somewhere, but I couldn't remember, or didn't know what it was called. It has a beautiful song. I'll have to look up some videos with music for it. Traditional style music is also great to lis...

Music in Your Area of the World

I recently read a book that was centered around music during The Great Depression here in the US. The book was titled Bud, Not Buddy and it was about a little boy who was on the search for his father who he believed to be a big band/jazz artist. While I have always been a fan of jazz and it's beginn...

Re: On the Outside

I finally finished a beautifully written book called Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi in which the town of Ferenwood is built on magic and vibrant colors. However, Alice, our heroine in the story, was born without color at all. Because of this, people might say that she doesn't have any magic, but this i...

Re: New Gorillaz album on June 29, 2018!

I have actually never heard of this band before, but I took a watch 'and a listen' to the video for "Humility" and they have good lyrics. It is definitely a summer sound. I don't really understand the idea of a fictional band when it is definitely a real band, but then again, I don't know ...

Re: Dystopias and Similar

After a recommendation from the lovely Gail Allen, I picked up the book Angelfall by Susan Ee. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it at first, but at a certain point, it was really difficult to have to stop reading because I had to do research or go volunteer or go to work, but I finally finished ...

Re: Deathly Hallows - Which one would you choose?

I am terrible, but I would probably choose the resurrection stone but only if it worked properly instead of bringing back someone the way it does in The Tale of Three Brothers. I would absolutely want to bring back my brother with it so I could see him again, even if it is a little selfish.

Re: Wonder: Extraordinary, but No One There to See (Ch 96) - The Walk Home (Ch 123)

At the beginning of the book, August says that he's okay with who he is, that he's used to it, but he still tries to cover his face at his new school. In fact, he doesn't even want to go in the beginning. But as the book continues, he really begins to come out of his shell or really I g...

This here is a hair clip that I got from my brother when I was really little before a dance performance. I lost the other half at one point, but as long as I have this half, it's okay. I consider it lucky.

Re: Wonder: Detention (Ch 64) - What I Miss Most (Ch 95)

The parts that make me laugh are August's little jokes. He is making fun of himself but he's okay with it because I think he's learning to be okay with who he is. But I sometimes wonder if the jokes he makes at his own expense causes subconscious harm. When I start to laugh, I have to t...

Re: Wonder: A Tour of the Galaxy (Ch 32) - Partners (Ch 63)

I think I really like Via as a character. Her relationship with August reminds me a lot of my relationship with my brother. Although August has physical needs that require special attention, I had other special needs that required attention as a child, and I often wonder sometimes if it ever bother...

Re: Wonder: Ordinary (Ch 1) - Names (Ch 31)

I'm going to put this whole thing in spoilers just to be safe even though I don't think I'm giving out a lot of spoilish information, it's still somewhat spoiling? I hate that word by the way. Although I was bullied for other reasons than August is "bullied," I still feel for him a lot in ...

Re: Book Review - The Bad Beginning

This was a quick read, so I was able to get through it in a couple of days. I don't remember ever reading this series, and I think if I had as a child, it may have had a different impact on me than it has an adult, then again, it may not have. It would have depended on when I read the series as I we...

Re: Marginalized Authors

I was finally able to finish an excellent novel called Pachinko by Min Jin Lee. The most I can say about this novel is, wow! When I first picked this book up last summer, I didn't know if I would actually like it or not considering its length and the premise it held, but when I picked it up again a ...

Marginalized Authors

Since last summer, I have been reading more and more books from authors that fall under this category of marginalized authors. This category includes women, people of color, LGBQT+, people with disabilities, as well as ethnic, cultural and religious minorities. Other authors may fit into this catego...

Re: Adding Words to Dictionaries

To answer the first question, I don't think the words should be removed when they are no longer used at large. There are many, many words in the dictionary that we no longer use today, but they're still in there. I think it's important because not only do people read material from earlier centuries ...
