Clearly, it's not racism, bigotry, or misogyny. There's only one thing it could be.
brentan comments on Aug 6, 2019:
It's not stupidity on Trump's part either. It's him telling the American people he doesn't their intelligence at all.

brentan comments on Aug 6, 2019:
I'm enjoying listening to him. I'm putting the Google translation of Mon Frere in for anyone who would like to know. Perhaps you'll correct it where necessary: You, brother I never had Do you know if you had lived What we would have done together A year after me, you would be born So we would not be left Like friends who are alike We would have learned slang by heart I would have been your teacher At my truancy school On one day we would have learned If only then we have known Together the same first But you're not here Whose fault is it? Not to my father Not to my mother You could have singed that You brother I never had If you knew what I drank Of my sorrows alone If you had not let me down You would have finished my songs I would have taught you how to do it If life had behaved better She would have split in two The pairs…
Is he really this stupid?

Medium of music
brentan comments on Aug 6, 2019:
I like to own things that I think say something about me so I pay up even though they can often be got free. These days, most of the music I hear is online - on this forum, Spotify, YouTube etc.

brentan comments on Aug 5, 2019:
I think mental health has as big an influence on these shootings as video games - little to none. Blaming mental health is only going to discourage investigation into why people commit these atrocities.

That's that I told the judge I was going to get when I was in court for drunken driving. It must have made some impression on him because I got off with a warning.

How do you determine what is simple introversion vs. what is selfishness? I have had an ongoing ...
brentan comments on Aug 5, 2019:
If it's any help, I think selfishness is a kind of greed and narcissism is a character trait that manipulates other people to consistently get what the narcissist wants. We all want a bigger slice of cake sometimes but not everybody goes about it using the tactics of the narcissist.
Lugubrious - sad and mournful.

brentan comments on Aug 4, 2019:
It’s true for me. I carry the beauty of many Biblical ideas around in my head. Sayings like ‘if you could only obey my commandments, your peace would be as a river’ or ‘and now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love'. I understand the context has been removed for me but the underlying words of wisdom still ring true.
Chargesheet Against JNU Teachers Will Have a 'Chilling Effect on Free Speech'
brentan comments on Aug 4, 2019:
Maybe they have this old idea that education is to cultivate productive minds. I wonder should employees who work as tools of the state be allowed such leeway in how the tools should operate. If I was working on a machine, I wouldn't want my tools getting independent notions.

brentan comments on Aug 1, 2019:
Arresting that awful sinner is the Christian thing to do. Some people think it's OK to think something bad so long as you don't do it but Jesus knew better: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. - Matthew 5:27, 28.

I was reading a book about zombies and came across a link to, of all things, an episode of The Twilight Zone called The Monsters Come To Maple Street. It's about the residents of a peaceful 1950s-type street turning on each other out of fear. I couldn't help relating it to the polarised ideologies tearing society apart these days. It's in 5 short parts. Here's the link to Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQMh3junewQ

brentan comments on Jul 27, 2019:
I couldn't resist posting all the words. This album came out when I was a teenager dealing with a nervous breakdown. JT was a great comfort to me when nothing else was helping: Long ago, a young man sits And plays his waitin' game But things are not the same It seems as in such tender dreams Slowly passing sailing ships And Sunday afternoons Like people on the moon I see Are things not meant to be Where do those golden rainbows end? Why is this song so sad? Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend Loving the love I love to Love is just a word I've heard When things are being said Stories my poor head has told me Cannot stand the cold And in between what might have been And what has come to pass A misbegotten guess alas And bits of broken glass Where do your golden rainbows end? Why is this song I sing so sad? Dreaming the dreams I've dreamed my friend Loving the love I love To love to love to love Oh no no no
