Childe Roland To The Dark Tower Came
I had an idea the other day to create a Minecraft world based upon the Dark Tower world and I’ve been seeking out Dark Tower companions, fan art and mapping ideas to detail the various places in as great detail as possible as featured within the books. Considering my Little Big Planet levels never materialised – mainly because I din’t have the time, patience and eventually just lost the desire.
While doing this, I felt this extreme desire to re-read the books as well as listen to the audio books again.
But, a much more serious thought hit me; moreso than the number 19 hits you whilst reading through the tale of Roland and his ka-tet. They better not fuck up the movies/TV series otherwise heads will roll.
I have been a fan of Stephen King for a long time, loved some of the movies…hated others – like most fans it would seem. But this is one piece of work I will not tolerate being messed up. I know Stephen King himself is gonna be paying close attention to this as, after all, if it gets fucked up – this is his biggest, boldest and greatest venture ever and it would be a crushing blow if this doesn’t live up to the hype the books would thrust upon us.
Let’s just hope the worst doesn’t happen and await the day it hits our screens and have us a good old palaver.
