Thinky-funny links!

Penn Jillette is one of my most favorite people to listen to. I love Penn&Teller. Here's a link to their show, Bullshit, where they debunk the Bible. The whole show, streamed - about 29 minutes. FANTASTIC. Note: while I am a staunch atheist, I appreciate that there are people who get peace and joy in their lives from a belief in god. I will never mock you for wanting happiness and purpose in your life. However, the Red Sea didn't part, Noah didn't have 10 billion life forms in twain on a boat, etc. But believe in something bigger and greater than us all. That's a really nice idea. Now. Watch this link and laugh and learn. :-D

This made me giggle - the ferocity of his scrubbing! *cracks up*

I'm off to the museum later to see the Richard Avedon: Into The West exhibit before it closes. I've been waiting for this for 15 years. I used to babysit for this family that had a collection of these bizarre black and white photographs. Slaughterhouse workers, drifters, casino employees, coal miners, all defiantly staring at the camera. Very confrontational but amazing. I always pulled out that book when I watched their kids. The actual pictures in the exhibit are life-sized, so I'm going to sit in front of these random people's pictures today.

Last: I got a card from poshcat in the mail yesterday (heee!! Mr. S liked the card especially, Posh) and a little something-something from crazydiamondsue. Sue? Emily carried around the card ALL DAY yesterday and said she got it from Suencaza (it's all one word, you see.) She's playing with the gift you sent her, and went STRAIGHT TO IT this morning when she woke up. You two are fantastic, and thanks again. (Caza? You'll be pleased to know that Emily speaks in Spanish routinely now.)

Now, how are YOU today? Spam me with stuff - Mr. S is back on his travel schedule so I'm needing chatter today!

Dude, that Avedon exhibit sounds amazing. I've seen some of those but never in full size.

I need to add that show to my Netflix queue. I've only seen one other ep, and I LOVED it. Love how they are trying to help, not behateful and assholish, although they can be.

I've seen their stand-up/Magic act once before and it's amazing.

Noah didn't have 10 billion life forms in twain on a boat

I happen to know a little something about the shipbuilding industry. It's a metaphor.

Spam me with stuff

Geesh. Pressure much? i've been spamming all week. Particularly by my lackadaisical posting standards.

*cough* Well, yeah. The whole damn Bible is nothing but metaphors, homilies, etc. But people believe that a man named Noah literally built a flat-bottomed boat that was ten stories tall and filled it with a male and female of every animal. LITERALLY. That it literally happened. 40 days/nights, food for all, etc. And technically, it was 130 days, because they had to wait for the waters to receed, etc. And that's what blows me away. That people believe that as a literal, factual thing, instead of recognizing it as a story of redemption and renewal, etc.

*laughs at your icon choice* Awesome. The boy just wandered by and went "cooooooool!" :-D

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Christians don't want to hear it. Faith trumps logic every time.

And yay for the card! I didn't expect all the husbands to be so appreciative. :0)

Mr. Posh is not travelling. He's hanging around watching me type. GO AWAY MR. POSH.

Dec. 13th, 2005 01:58 pm (UTC)
HAHAHAHA!! Ah, the Faith card. It does trump all. *thinks of Faith in leather pants* What? No?

POSH! *squishes because you are dear* Love the new icon!

I LOVE Penn and Teller, they crack me up. My favourite one was when the grabbed a guy on this wharf as their 'lovely assistance', threw him in a crate while manacled, set the crate on fire and then threw it into the ocean. I don't know what happened to him, but by golly that was funny.

stoney321
Dec. 13th, 2005 01:59 pm (UTC)
HAHAHA!!! They are hilarious. You are, too. I saw an old act of theirs where they did the old "is this your card?" but with a twist - Teller in a submerged tank of water with bacon on his face and a bag of rats dumped in. Ha! Mmm. I feel like having some steak, now.

How are you???

I'm much better and off my hormonal flailing bit. Though I did spend a merry time last night banging on the wall until 2am trying to get Snory McSnores from hell to roll over so I could sleep in 90% humidity - BUT then I looked in the paper and saw that I'm paying quite a bit living where I am and it's not really going to hit my pocket at all to move, so I'm feeling a lot! Plus in my dreams I got into a huge fight with said flatmate and I think it was quite cathartic, so as long as I didn't knife him in my sleep we're all good to go.

Blah, blah, blah, me, me whine.

So, how YOU doing?
stoney321
Dec. 13th, 2005 02:25 pm (UTC)
Oh, I am SOOO glad you'll be able to move out soon. Nothing like being in your own place with your own rules.

I am good. I'm a little blown down from this art exhibit I went to... I'm trying to put my thoughts together on it. It feels a bit silly to be so affected by something, but glah.

(And I don't know if a certain box will hit you before Christmas, but it should get there about that time.)

Shows what an amazing exhibition it must have been, also that you probably have PMS because you ladies are like that with getting all het up and emotional around that time of Eve's curse befalling you, like the wicked sinner ladies that you are. Why Noah didn't just throw Mrs Noah out the side and take along his friend Bob I'll never know.

You are too nice to me, smuggling ecstacy pills across customs just to give me some holiday cheer. The opium is definitely on it's way, I just have to harvest it! You just can't get good workers in the drug trade these days, it's shocking.

ps. On a more serious note I'm so glad that the exhibition was that amazing, it's good for the soul. Plus you have PMT.

Women should just smile, re-fresh their lipstick, and make the home nice for their menfolk. Men don't want to hear their whining when they've had a Hard Day at the Job. I should remember my place.... *is complacent* *makes centerpieces out of chicken wire, leftovers, and tinsel*

HARVEST THE OPIUM FASTER, OMG. (And I just posted pics to the show, if you're interested)

That Avedon exhibit looks great! It reminds me of an exhibit I saw at the Getty, by August Sander, all pics of working people of all stripes. It was verrah cool. Hope you have fun!

Oh man. Just back and it was AMAZING. To the point where I couldn't talk or form sentences. I broke down and bought the exhibit book - I'll see if I can't get some images scanned. The way it was set up was amazing.

Heee! Love him. He's so squirmy, you know? Thanks for the link! (I'm enjoying his latest show, Extras. OH!! I meant to ask you: did you watch the BBC2 show This Life?)

Yes, I did! I loved it especially the man-on-man scenes :::is predictable:::

Been meaning to ask you, Stoney, any thoughts on what would be a good name for my lj? I'm not so good with the soundbites.

I am JUST now getting to see the show, OH MY GOD. I love it. (Jack Dav! Squeee!)

OooooOOooooh. I'll think of something. *rubs hands*

(And I just posted pictures from the exhibit, if that's of any interest to you)

CRAP! I got tired of waiting for a friend to be available to see this showing, so I took myself to the museum. NORMALLY I WOULD BE HERE!!

Penn! Hee. I do adore him, and have an odd, tangential could possibly meet him if I really wanted connection with him. I am SO cool. Bwah.

And I always miss the fun Stoney posting times. I have no funny, but I was harrassed by a cop today. *beams*

WHAT?? There is a story here! Did you call him a "copper?" A "pig?"

Are you okay?

I am good, and honestly, I am sure that I felt more menaced than I actually was. I did have a momentary shudder, and WTF moment. I posted a bit of detail in my journal if you are interested, after reading your comment I started to reply here and it got long. I am fine, and feeling stupid after feeling so intimidated over nothing. If I can't laugh at myself - well then things are worse than I thought.

(I was thinking "pig" in my mind. Eep - Anarchy! )

Playing with it RIGHT NOW, in fact. Best. Present. Ever.

How's your day today? Where are you, home or work? I are confuzzled. I made a list so I can be super accomplished today! One of those tasks? burning CDs for you - and hitting the post office. Woot!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
