FRA and Cleverbot

Greetings, the last episode of the second series of the adventures of Fletch and Roman is up in Warehouse 17. I feel it has been a little less confusing than the first series, having fewer villains but a random story to follow. The third series will be coming next year. On different news, I have had about two conversations with an AI which calls itself Cleverbot. It actually learns from conversations from other people and will talk to you about any topic. It's quite cool and a little weird at the beginning but you get used to it. It claims to be a she, well she lies a lot of the time and avoids questions but she is worthwhile talking to. Ohh and you can never leave, I have tried many of times but you have to close the panel to succeed. The tenth episode of the second series of the adventures of Fletch and Roman is up in Warehouse 17.

A new style

Greetings, this is the first official update of potato journal, by official I mean not one that has already been repeated. The Dark tower update is what I mean, any way thanks to Aaron for the new style and Mark for making a new banner. In other news the IT Crowd has returned. For those who don't know it, it is written by the same person who wrote Father Ted and Black Books. The first episode of the third was yesterday which was hilarious. It is based around a small cast of three main people in the IT suit of a building, Moss the socially awkward nerd, Roy his friend and Jen, who knows nothing about computers. Well Scrubs may have been cancelled but there's still the IT Crowd. The ninth episode of the adventures of Fletch and Roman is up in Warehouse 17.

The Dark Tower 1 and 2

Greetings, Dark Tower is a series of seven books of which I have read two of. I am not really sure why I didn't review the first book Gunslinger before hand but I suppose there is no time like the present, let's see if I remember it. The first one was set in a world that is not our own or is in the past, I haven't quite figured that out but there's still a lot more books to go. It follows the character of Sir Roland who is the last of his kind, the last Gunslinger into the desert lands hunting down the Dark Tower and his enemy the Man in Black, also known as Walter. Basically it is a long journey to a Dark Tower in which many of the Gunslinger's friends have been killed in search of. This book and the others were all influenced by the Lord of the Rings, this has a Western twist into it. It has a strange end, which even after reading the second book still isn't exactly clear. The Dark Tower series was written by Stephen King.

The Drawing of the three, the next book is set along a beach that never appears to end, with strange creatures that are willing to kill the Gunslinger from the sea, the Gunslinger has to survive them and the Man in Black's plan. He has to walk inside three doors, all far apart, which lead to the minds of three people. The first is that of Eddie Dean and leads to our world during the 1970's, where Eddie, an drug addict tries to smuggle drugs to America when the Gunslinger interrupts. I will not say to much as that would spoil the books. They were well written but they both took a while to get into and build up so much that over the last twetny pages there is action. The ending of this book was also a little confusing but hopefully, it will all be explained later. The eighth episode of the adventures of Flecth and Roman series 2 is up in Warehouse 17.

Quote of the day

Cheer up, Brian. You know what they say:
Some things in life are bad.
They can really make you mad.
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble. Give a whistle.
And this'll help things turn out for the best. And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
