What are the Basic Things?

March 31st, 2014 by G.

It’s not the tiniest conceivable parts that are basic, but the largest conceivable whole.

The Gospel Chews at You

March 31st, 2014 by Man SL

You know a guy. His wife is one of us. He is not. He and you butcher animals together. Most recently, your two hogs two weeks ago.

He is a little rough. Last time you were out together, he makes a point of buying chaw and chewing it. “I hope you don’t mind,” he says,” but if you did I’d do it anyway.” You work to conceal your amusement. (more…)

Joyful Fatherhood

March 31st, 2014 by Zen

In our day, both marriage and parenthood, particularly fatherhood, is looked down upon.
Which is why it is particularly nice to see a father who works at Pixar, make little home videos of his son, even if it has irresponsible use of lightsabers.

Openness and Diversity for all, except for that

March 30th, 2014 by Zen

The Mozilla Foundation has a new CEO. He was a co-founder of Mozilla, helped invent Javascript along with other notable achievements. But it is not for his technical qualification that the internet is in an uproar. It is because he donated to Prop. 8. Now there is an uproar, from both within the company and the general community at large, for him to step-down or renouce his former position. 

Calls for diversity and openness  do not extend to his position, which is only referred to as hateful and irrational.
Apparently free-love prioritizes sex over actual love.
Who knew?

The Amazing Adventure of Noah and the Magic Snake-Skin

March 28th, 2014 by G.

I don’t know if this review of Noah the movie is fair. But when a review is this tasty, fair’s got nothing to do with it.

The gamesters of Metropolis

March 28th, 2014 by Vader

Gaming a rent control system that might possibly have made sense when it was instituted, at the height of the Second World War. Over seventy years ago.

Nowadays, it’s hard to see how this isn’t an uncompensated takings by the City of New York.

James Stoddard, the High House

March 25th, 2014 by G.

May I make a book recommendation? I just finished reading a fantasy in the old style, where peace and right and order are restored by the end. It’s James Stoddard’s The High House.

It was also, without being ostentatious about it, a pious book, about how the ordinary rituals of our lives reflect and maintain the whole of the universe.
There is even one scene that will strike the alert reader as curiously Mormon.

The Confederacy Won

March 24th, 2014 by Man SL

In the Old South, you were a Big Man if you took charge of a number of “inferiors.” Ostensibly because this showed how caring and paternal you were, and in reality because you made a bunch of money out of it.
Looking around at today’s social welfare-ocracy, I see that the Confederacy won.
