We will post comments and discussion of the two books throughout the month in the HQ. Then on the first Sunday of the following month we will hold a live call in open mic show where we will discuss the books and the comments from the HQ that were left throughout the month. The two books that we are reading in January are Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy Vol. 1, Heir to the Empire and Triplanetary: The Lensman Saga, Book 1.
We Bring You...
We at Project:Shadow brought you two great interviews last month Underground Blues Division & Pamela Moore check them out in the symposium.
Share your favorite video clip with the group: We now have 142 videos available to members at the ProjectShadow HQ at http://hq.projectshadow.com/. Its a great way to share your great finds with everyone and also a great way to catch the coolest, neatest new videos that are out.
We Love Net Flix! We have been a member of Netflix for more than five years now and it is great! Before that we would spend one to three hours in the video store every Friday looking and trying to decide what video we wanted to rent (a large chunk of this time was spent trying to remember what videos were out that we wanted to see), spend all that money on the rentals, and then have to go through the hassle of trying to watch and return the video so that we would not get charged a late fee. This terrible experience was flipped with Netflix. Now we have a list of videos that we want to see set up. Whenever we see a trailer for a movie or show that we want to rent we just add it to our list and when it gets released to dvd about a year latter the video just arrives! Now every week we get excited waiting for the mail to arrive so that we can see what new videos arrive. We watch them when we get time to watch them. Then when we are done watching it (in some cases this can take several weeks to accomplish partially due to some hectic event that takes up all of our time and in some situations it's because we end up watching it over and over again) we just drop it in the mail. If you don't already use Netflix then go to www.ProjectShadow.com and get your videos today!
