Thanks to Muslihoon for the link.

Oh, and by the way, the Spurs closed out the Suns tonight, 92-87. New Orleans is next.

This is “Vocal Point” from BYU. Stick with it — it keeps getting better.

Thank you, Michael.

Pretty music!

By the way, I recently went to a “Theology on Tap” lecture, and I thought of you, Muslihoon.

It was a really interesting talk comparing Eastern religion (by which they mean the Vedic tradition, especially Hinduism and Buddhism) to Christianity. There are lots of parallels, as well as some important differences. Most of the talk was way over my head, unfortunately.

The speaker pointed out something which I though was very interesting: Pretty much all the Christian saints meditated extensively, yet very few modern Christians practice “contemplation” (Christian meditation).

Ya shoulda been there.

And now I’m going to defile the holy with the profane.

For some reason this song just depresses the hell out of me: The Next Man That I See by Anita Lane. (She used to date Nick Cave, by the way.)

There are some really interesting looking houses in that vid, Sandy. I’d shoot myself if I had to watch that video again, but I did enjoy the architecture.

Enjoyed the uplifting song Michael. I used to sing quite a bit during Catholic mass and knew the first couple of verses of many of the songs. Most of the songs at the Methodist church I joined are new to me and I don’t like them as much. Maybe they’ll grow on me.

Thanks for sharing this one, gents.

Interesting way they changed to a minor key.

Good selection.

When I was in Navy Boot Camp, in San Diego in the early 60’s, I was in the Drum and Bugle Corps. We all played Manly Brass Instruments, no reed suckers allowed.
Each night after lights out, we would all sing The Lord’s Prayer. I have no idea if it was a ‘Corps Tradition’ or just something that someone in my company started.
It was a moving experience for lonely young men, away from their loved ones.
Probably get sued if they tried that today.

D minor is the saddest key, don’t you think?

9. Retired Geezer - April 30, 2008

^ Only if you turn it up to eleven.

no reed suckers allowed.

*snort*

Well, Ace’s site is down, which can only be good for IB’s sitemeter (and thus, Michael’s self-esteem).

12. kevlarchick - April 30, 2008

And there’s nothing more important than Michael’s self-esteem.

13. compos mentis - April 30, 2008

I have been extremely disappointed in the lack of participation at this site from all ya’ll. It’s high time you got yourselves a drink, took your pants off, and joined the party!

Come on in, the pudding’s fine!

14. daveintexas - April 30, 2008

How can you have any pudding, if you haven’t finished your meat?

15. compos mentis - April 30, 2008

if you haven’t finished your meat?

*he said with a wink and a come-hither look*

Sweet talker.

Hell hath no fury
like that of a humpback scorned
for bad poetry

Fine! To hell with it!
I’m going to go have a beer.
Ya’ll can kiss my rump.

I have been extremely disappointed in the lack of participation at this site from all ya’ll.

I bet it was something Bart said.

19. compos mentis - April 30, 2008

You know, that’s probably true. Bart offends in so many ways.

There are some really interesting looking houses in that vid, Sandy.

That video was shot in North Illawarra, a region of Australia. (Anita Lane is Australian.)
