Musings on the state of things at Bulbagarden, and other thoughts.
Easier than a personal reply -- call me lazy. But, thanks to all for the birthday wishes. I started on Bulba shortly before my 13th birthday, and now I'm 23. I'm so old!
Not the incredible third album by Springsteen, but the well-written book by Christopher McDugall. If you haven't read it, I'd really recommend it. Physical activity isn't the kind of thing we talk about a lot on Bulbagarden, especially not ultramarathons. But it's a really important part of overall health, and Born to Run makes a great case for doing a lot of running, and running differently from how we're used to, in our special running shoes on perfectly-designed oval tracks.
Before that, I'd like to make a personal and public thank-you to everyone who's helped make National Bulbagraphic totally awesome over the past month and a half. We've got a ton of articles that are looking really great for Issue 2 and I even have one article already lined up for Issue 3. If you're interested in writing for Bulbagraphic, drop me a line. We accept articles on all sorts of Pokemon-related topics, especially stuff that provides interesting or unusual views on the franchise.
I got a new job (woo!) and it's going to require that I do some traveling for the month of August. When I fly, I like to catch up on reading, and I was wondering/hoping you could all help me out and give me a few pointers. I have pretty eclectic interests and I love nonfiction. I'll only read fiction if it's really, really good. But if you know good stuff, I'd love to hear about it.
Beyond the recommendations, one question: is Game of Thrones worth it? (Again, book, not TV series.)

Just wanted to start this discussion a bit, what with the 7th move (Part II) coming out in two weeks. Thoughts? I don't want to poison the well by naming my picks, but I think on the whole the odd-numbered books are substantially better than the even numbered ones. Thoughts?
