Denial says things like that.
There's nothing inherently wrong with religion.
But there's a lot wrong with what people do with it, and in its name.

Interzone / Re: Are downloadable MP3s still relevant?
« on: October 06, 2013, 02:05:44 AM »
I lost my mp3 player and didn't buy a new one. Now I don't don't download mp3s I just listen to youtube. But I have also somewhat passed through the metal phase. I don't know, I appreciated music more before, now it seems less important, except as a pick-me-up.


A worthwhile observation. Why hang onto the way you are, for dear life, when the fact is you are growing and developing. Or should/could be. And (occasional) silence does wonders for a healthy existence.

Yesterday I stumbled across a salamander, hauling its ass slowly across the lawn.
The first one I've ever seen.
It seemed to enjoy the warmth of my hand, while I found it a nice place to hide out from the coming winter.
They are able to secrete a mild poison, but it didn't feel like poisoning me.
Meanwhile, the full moon seemed to prevent me from sleeping, for some reason.
Now I'm a right mess.

The moon fascinates me. Always has. What a staggering thing it is, suspended up there in space.
When you consider the effect it has on tides, it is probably a good idea to respect it.
Anything that can move that much water up and down, like a heartbeat, is something to take rather seriously.

Maybe I gave the wrong impression with my description.
It's never bitten me, restricting itself to gentle nibbles.
I get scratched, sometimes, trying to hold it, to get it out of rainstorms.
It's certainly not a maniac.
The raccoons, however, can be a whole different story...

Interzone / Rabbit wisdom.
« on: September 23, 2013, 05:47:26 PM »
I was feeding my replacement bunny, this morning, which was a very wet, clammy sort of morning.
It was already in its hutch, which remains open, and is a shelter against the weather.
It saw me coming and prepared itself to be unprepared.
Then it made like a ram, and head-butted my hand, before clamping its shovel teeth to my finger and reminding me of what it could do if it decided to.
And nibbled a bit of hay instead. Looked me in the eye and cared about nothing. Washed its face. Yawned. Skittered out of the hutch, down the ramp, back up again, and ate some pellets.

It came to me that I behave in much the same way.
Prepared to respond to anything, anytime, by being pointedly unprepared for any particular thing.
Open to the moment, and what the moment may bring.
If rabbits have any wisdom, then that may be it.

Not bad for the preamble that builds up to the actual performance.
It's not just women, either.

You can have a life, or you can socialize. Free-will comes as standard equipment.

I could watch this show just for the guy's accent!


Exactly  :)
The actual content is no more than a cracking bonus over the voice.

As far as I can see, there are three season's worth of episodes.
The first season doesn't seem to be as fleshed-out as later ones, but all of them stand out, regardless.
I rarely watch anything, either movies or TV stuff. But this is special.

That was a pretty damned good attempt to convey the un-conveyable. Nice  :)

The point of this post was, I suppose, that whether or not Murphy actually is the kind of man he portrays, he portrays it so well that it serves to remind those who may have forgotten what being a man is about.
He is just soooo Man.
Positively Neolithic, hard as nails, but with a humour and a parallel sensitivity, that has become rarer than diamonds.

Interzone / Murphy's Law.

If you're from the UK, you may already be familiar with Murphy's Law. But if you're not, take a look at this very involved, very deep, very odd crime drama.
Murphy is from the depths of Hell, aka Belfast. If he wasn't an undercover cop, he'd be an IRA terrorist.
This man rocks! And he speaks just like me :)

When you live in a forest, your whole house becomes a writing-hut.
Even so, I have been fixing up my power shed, to accommodate a cosy twin bed, a sumptuous carpet, a knee-chair, and a computer.
There are no windows, even!
I admit, though, that the wireless signal to and from my router, needs some serious amplification, if I can figure out how.

That's an amazing comment. Food for consideration.

Well, you'd have to define 'roles' I suppose.
People use the term for both the natural and the unnatural.
Who knows?
