* CrazyAwesome: The origin of Codex Alera is a perfect example. Butcher was in an argument with a guy over which made a good story: the originality of the idea, or the presentation of an idea. Butcher, being on the presentation side, was told to write a story about a bad idea. Being a loudmouth, he said 'No, you give me two bad ideas, and I'll use them both!' The bad ideas in question: Lost Roman Legions and Pokemon.



** He also enjoys WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic and requested that he review the [[Series/TheDresdenFiles tv version]] of ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. [[http://channelawesome.com/the-dresden-files-here-there-be-dragons/ He got his wish.]]
