If you change the names of the players and the subject of the debate...is it still outrageous?

...

In recent days you said X Corp opposes female infanticide and said the generation that supports it has an "arrogant attitude."

Now -- incredibly -- your company says you are backing out of the female infanticide debate.  I urge you to back out of your plans to locate in Anicent Rome.


You called supporters of female infanticide "prideful".  Here in Rome, to borrow your own words, we are "guilty as charged."  We are indeed full of pride for our support of female infanticide and our work to expand that freedom to all people.  We are proud that our state and our city have led the way for the Empire on parental rights.


I was angry to learn on the heels of your prejudiced statements about your search for a site to locate in Rome.  There is no place for weakness on Rome's Via Appia and no place for your company alongside it.  When Fascichusetts became the first state in the Empire to recognize parental infanticide rights, I personally stood on Palatinus to greet the patriarchs coming here to downsize their brood.  It would be an insult to them and to our city's long history of expanding freedom to have an X Corp accross the street from that spot.

Sincerely,

down the rabbit hole...

I am really excited about Ponyo!  Watched it this weekend at AFO and was thinking the whole time "I want to watch this with my Kaedmon.  I want to watch this with Vanessa.  I can't wait 'till we can watch this with Anya."  US release date is still (I think) August 14th.

Please everyone, let's all go see it together.

I sent a link this morning to hymnia about an [anime] movie we learned about (but couldn't remember the exact title) in the "What Anime Should I Watch?" panel (hosted by Daryl Surat).  As she pointed out, it seems likely that it had some influence on Rahxephon (which I completely enjoyed...and frankly, I like it better than Eva so nyah,nyah,nyah!).  Also, In spite of the excellent information in the panel, that question still burns in my mind: what anime should I watch?

So then I recalled some info from the Dragon Ball panel about how it was based on  "Journey to the West" (along with a number of other manga/anime series)... and in turn stumbled upon the probable source for the name "Nagini".  Interesting...but then, J.K. Rowling is very clever with all the names in the HP universe.  --And then went back to reading about Journey to the West (which I will finish reading after this post).

All that to say, it kinda makes me want to read the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature.   Ok, so, what anime novels should I watch read?

I'm also going to go out on a limb and say, I think Naruto might actually be a decent show if it weren't for all the Naruto fans...yeah, that's pretty much the problem right there; too bad I'll probably never watch it now.  Blech.

Hosanna - Hillsong United

Not sure which one I like better....



Guitar Solo at 2:51 and 2:55 respectively.




I really like this song. This was my favorite? best? song that we played for the Easter service tonight. I have mixed feelings about lots of things...I mean, it was good but...I was tired, worn out from playing/rehearsing too much, too new of strings, dizzy/out of focus, couldn't hear right...played way below peak, out of tune, meh...different things going on in my heart...mixed feelings...

--but this song, I really like it. Sometimes before the 'show' or when the 'show' is all over, when I can feel/think straight again, this is where the real worship happens.

Hosanna

I see the king of glory
Coming on the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes
The whole earth shakes

I see his love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing
The people sing

Hosanna
Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

I see a generation
Rising up to take their place
With selfless faith
With selfless faith

I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek
We're on our knees
We're on our knees

Hosanna
Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me

Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I walk from nothing to
Eternity

Hosanna
Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

A Tolkien quote on marriage

"Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to."
