    You’re reading The Fountainhead? I don’t think you’ll like it. The ideas were neat but I could only read about a quarter of it, I couldn’t stand any of the characters. I read Masters of Doom, though! John Carmack is the Howard Roarke of computer gaming, I think. What do you think?

    I think Ayn Rand had some great ideas but I think she needed to lighten up and get a life. Or maybe in The Fountainhead there should have been a battle with robot monkeys or something.

    WHICH Sweeney Todd? The old black-and-white one, the musical with Johnny Depp, the one with Gandhi…?

    You should write some official Commander Keen fiction! I’d love to explore the cultures of the races in CK, especially the Shikadi!
