... go in good company. Wink
Miley Cyrus, Angelina Jolie and Sasha Grey are good company? Really? Drinking Beverage

Well... Tim Minchin, Richard Feynman, and George Clooney kind of offset that for me. Drinking Beverage


I don't even know who Sasha Grey is.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

And to think, Morgan Freeman played God in a couple of movies!

Glad Hugh Laurie, Mark Twain, and John Cleese will be there. We will be entertained!

RE: Feeling good. Feeling positive. Humanity. Happiness. Hope.
I live in southern Ohio which is part of the Bible Belt. And yet, here in the middle of nowhere, most of the "Witness kids" I grew up with have left the organization and, indeed, are atheist. These are young people and, like me, were indoctrinated for all of their life and still chose to think for themselves.

That is an encouraging thought!

She's a pseudo-artistic porn actress.

I've drawn her before!

NUDITY WARNING

Hope I don't get myself into too much trouble with that. It's art. Shouldn't be a biggie.

Wasn't one of my best, but-- there it is.

I think you'll OK. There is a maturity filter.

Apparently, I'm not old enough to see it.

MUSIC! Eva Cassidy singing Fields of Gold. Johnny Cash-Ring of Fire and Folsom Prison Blues. Sarah Jarosz anything. Loreena McKennitt-Skellig. Bonnie Raitt's version of Angel from Montgomery. Rihanna-We Found Love. Joni Mitchell-A Case of You. 70s funk. Fleetwood Mac. Adele. P!nk-Try. The Staple Singers-I'll Take You There. Steve Earle-copperhead Road and Taneytown. The whole O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack. Ralph Stanley's high lonesome sound. Old Crow Medicine Show-Wagon Wheel. Lucinda Williams. Stevie Ray Vaughn-Pride & Joy and Texas Flood. Allman Brothers-Midnight Rider. Marshall Tucker Band. Melissa Etheridge. Massive Attack-Teardrop. Nelly Furtado-Say It Right.

I could go on, but you get the idea along with a small portion of what's in my iTunes list.

If anything provides transcendence for me, it's music, my drug of choice.

Wow. You stole my playlist.
