The Dork Tower
After watching the well-acted Dark Tower movie (and the fact that I can only praise the acting tells you a lot about the movie) I decided to read the books all over again in order to wash the taste out of my mouth. Getting back into that universe again, starting over the journey with Roland and his Ka-Tet has been an absolute joy.
The books are incredibly well-written and the concept explored within the pages allow the series to be more original than others that I’ve read in the past ten past years. Balancing out all the different tones and ideas must have been a headache, yet the way each individual storyline, as well as the overarching quest is presented, makes everything feel natural and simple.
To be fair, this could be said about a lot of King’s other work, from It, Carrie, Misery, Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, Stand By Me, Salem’s Lot…they’re all great pieces of literature in their own way and when you read great pieces of literature, you can’t help but want to improve your own writing ability.
Finding excellent writing is always fun and the same could be said for finding excellent comments; this, of course, is why you’re reading this here today and why I’m even writing this. So sit back, relax, and let TheLimoMaker take you on a wonderful journey through the depraved comments of Destructoid!

TheLimoMaker: Pics or it didn’t happen.
TheLimoMaker: A Bethesda Game: It’s both a bug and a feature!
TheLimoMaker: Hey now, Bethesda are an upstanding company with a high moral fiber and immense levels of quality assura…pffft okay I’m sorry, I couldn’t keep writing that out.
TheLimoMaker: Honestly, there are so many golden comments in this piece that I urge you to read it for yourselves.

TheLimoMaker: You thought Dere would not appear. You were wrong.
TheLimoMaker: Disco Stu rubs his lamp at Shantae too! Boo yeah!
TheLimoMaker: Sonic Mania > Sonic Forces. I can say that without having played either. How? Because it’s the internet.
TheLimoMaker: Look at those wide, terrified eyes, forever caught in an endless loop.
TheLimoMaker: Dabbing in 2017 is as publicly acceptable as running into a nursery naked.
