Just finished The last Continent.
@mangaluva: It didn't even get that much weirder. You lied to me! :(

The scene where Rincewind reunites with the Luggage *giggle*
I found it interesting that Rincewind actually did what he was supposed to do not only in the showdown but pretty much all the way trough. And the people were actually nicer towards him than usual.

Fairly sure you can get the radio downloads outside of the UK y'know...? They have adverts 'cause of how it's funded, but yeah. I think the watching/listening live and downloading TV stuff is what's only allowed in Britain (TV license funded and'all), but... afaik, you should be able to access the radio stuff. *seriously hopes she's not wrong about this :x :/*

I found a youtube channel that has the radio plays.

But what I meant was that in britain you don't have to search for hours to get some Pratchett

Sorry for doublepost but: DARKTAN!
I want to cuddle him. (But I know he won't let me. Maybe Beans would let me...)

For everyone who doesn't understand what I am talking about Read "The amazing Maurice and his educated Rodents". You won't regret it.
