Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Grayson, Beck does not hide his religion, but does not actively promote it either, unlike Romney who is one of the leaders of Mormonism in the US (this is a guess, no one knows who the actual Council members are). Not sure I agree that talk radio has an appreciably greater influence now as opposed t...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Grayson, Not sure if you will see this, as I will not post in the Pav again to break the once per day rule over this, but Beck is a bad example. Yes, he is a Mormon, and frequently includes coded Mormon theology in his rants. However, he is not an elected official. If you read between the lines on w...

Wimps, y'all are wimps.

Unfortunately, the trip to the Wisconsin Dells with the boys at the end of the month is the only travel I will be able to schedule for a while, Lori....

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Keeney, that is undeniable. While I generally agree with Keith Olbermann, I cannot watch his show because he is such an insufferable, condescending prick who is just as much of a blowhard as O'Reilly. Interesting comment in the Pav from Amparion that I am not sure I believe. The timing just seems to...

Re: Whatcha reading?

Offer stands on Sandman if you would prefer to borrow a volume or two before buyng, just let me know. Before you read Sandman I should tell you that if you start with volume 1, the first couple of issues are not that great. Neil even admits this. He really starts finding his voice in issue 8, the So...

Re: Whatcha reading?

Barber, Let me know if you want me to send you some volumes of Sandman or Smoke & Mirrors. Trust me, they are worth it (or if you want almost anything else Neil related, all you gotta do is ask, my Neil collection sits right below my Harlan stuff in my bookshelves) Lori, I really do need to read...

Re: Whatcha reading?

Chuck and Ian, American Gods is wonderful. I believe that was the first Gaiman book I loaned to Keith Cramer many years ago, and now I have him hooked on Gaiman. If you have not read some of his short story collections, like Smoke & MIrrors, I would recommend them also Neil hosted a party at the...

Re: Defeinding bad behaviour (part 2)

Over at Mental Floss, they have the scene from Pump Up the Volume embedded where Christian Slater rails against why suicide is such a bad option. Great scene, and a powerful message to send to kids. Keeney, if it makes you feel any better, I will confirm that you are, in fact, irritating as hell (an...

Re: Defeinding bad behaviour (part 2)

Chuck, thanks, it seemed oddy appropriate somehow Ez, I am unable to shed light on why people would be different online or in person. Those here who have met me or spoken with me on the phone can pretty much verify I ain't no different. I will say that I do like the theory of GIFT and want to think ...

Re: Defeinding bad behaviour (part 2)

To follow up on Mr. Evil's pont, the Internet breeds anonymity. Anonymity can lead to a lack of accountability. There are certain personality types who feel that, if they cannot be tracked down for their comments, then that gives them free reign to unload from the deepest recesses of their id (why d...
