Nice Master :(

Warning: this is yet another thread about free will! :scarey: For me perhaps the most tragic moment in the Tale comes in II. 325 ff. when Sam fails to note the complete change in Gollum's tone and aspect. 'Nothing, nothing.', said Gollum softly. 'Nice master!'. His repentance is blighted and all Fro...

I have to say, though I love everyone's pictures, Eru seems to come up with the best of the best. :love:

The other two will be released over the course of (I believe) the next couple of years. I certainly intend to purchase all three, eventually, although I haven't gotten FOTR yet. I definitely think that these soundtracks were a hugely incredible achievement (at least equal to the films themselves, al...

Cerin, ttbk is referring to the complete soundtrack of FOTR that was released on December 13 (you can see his title is a bit out of date). It includes, basically, every note that was recorded for the extended version of the film, with just a couple of small modifications, in two formats - on three C...

Come on and
Ease on down,
Ease on down the road
Come on,
Ease on down,
Ease on down the road
Don't you carry nothing that might be alone
Come on,
Ease on down
Ease on down, down the road

Yes, I agree with you guys; the proposition does not hold up.

At the risk of completely osgiliating this thread, Yov, would that mean that it should be morally acceptable to kill someone who is depressed? Far be it for me to argue with Peter Singer, but I think that a better way of putting it would be: The morality of killing a being is directly proportional t...

While strolling through her cactus gardens one warmish June morning, Amanda came upon an old Navajo man painting pictures in the sand. "What is the functino of the artist?" Amanda demanded of the talented trespasser. "The function of the artist," the Navajo answered, "is to...

Tell me we are not reaching complete insanity here, no matter what side of the debate you are on. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/02/11/AR2006021101232.html It seems that Indiana wants to change its abortion consent laws to require doctors to inform women seeking an abortio...

Thanks for the review, Jewel. I don't really have any specific questions, but its nice to get the impression of someone who I know (and like :)). That's a real shame about the guy playing Gandalf!

A couple of interesting developments in this area today. The first, mostly for its irony. The second should (but probably will not) have enormous ramifications. It has now been revealed that Lewis Libby testified to the grand jury that "his superiors" (read Vice President Cheney) authorize...

The Art of Politics

One of the big stories in the news today is that President Bush revealed that there was allegedly a terrorist plot to fly a airplane into a tall building in Los Angeles in 2002 that was foiled by counter-terrorism efforts. I must admit, I find the timing of this announcement most very suspicious, pa...

would people's reaction to it be any different if I told you that the painting was made for a rock album cover?
No. At least not my reaction. But then, I haven't described any reaction, so that's probably not fair.
