I'm not gonna pronounce that name.

To me you will always be, Bob.

Nice to meet you, Bob. Smile

Bonus points if you too love that movie.
Titan A.E. (2000)

If the style looks familiar, that's thanks to director/producer and former Disney animator Don Bluth; who was also behind The Land Before Time, An American Tail, All Dog Go To Heaven, and Anastasia.

The characters in question are Akima and Cale, voiced by Drew Barrymore and Matt Damon respectively. It also included the respectable voice talent of Bill Pullman, John Leguizamo, Nathan Lane, Janeane Garofalo, and Ron Perlman. The movie is criminally underrated, and probably will be the subject of my next 'Bad Movie Appreciation' post.

Hey there, welcome Smile

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

I wasn't Berkshire born but I was Berkshire bred.

Never been to Chester though. It seems Chester folk were modest in their catholicism (fashioned in the architectural style of Khazad-dûm, I'm guessing):

What's MA?

That modest little place of sheep-fleecing worship is Chester Cathedral, Chester, Cheshire, England, UK, Europe

I was raised in Berkshire, England.

Different time zone and also probably different by pronunciation ... we say Bark-sher; I'm guessing yours is Burke-Shyer?

> MA is the postal abbreviation of Massachusetts. The Berkshires I am referring to in my initial post is a section of the Appalachian Mountains which extend through the western part of the state. The architecture of the church you pictured is nearly identical to the church in Holyoke. Clearly, they were built according to the same design plans.

Wuss-tuh

Only words that end with an 'a' are pronounced like they end with 'er' like that Bill Joel song about "Brender and Eddie".

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!
