Some songs, like Long Train Running are a danger on the road. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIi_GbFa_nw
Baaba Maal is a singer and guitarist from the north of Senegal.

I really enjoyed that! I was pleased to see Irish trad musician Donal Lunny was a guest on the album.
So that's what happened...

brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
I think the only thing that matters anymore is economic growth.
Is the "afterlife" possible without a god or gods?
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
I used to think it wasn't possible. Now I'm not so sure and the more I read about universal consciousness and how the brain works, the more I think it is possible. One thing I definitely have no idea about is what form that afterlife might take, such as if we are returned to a oneness of consciousness (assuming we came from one) or carry on with our own personal one.
Illegal immigrants issue
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
That sounds right and proper to me.

I haven't heard of her in a long time. Reminds me of Demis Roussos too.

F.W. Woolworth Co-Who remembers?

That's so very good! I still have the DVD.
Don't Worry Be Hippie.
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
I blame this guy for a lot of the hippy nonsense. Here he is in his pyjamas. I'm not sure he ever got a proper job: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BU8COHUrGi0
More proof that the system is rigged:
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
That's because the profit is going to trickle down sometime. I'm not sure when.

The underwater Mafia.
I have many sunset cloud photos. I like the black contrasting on white here
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
It is striking and even though I don't think you can call black and white a true reflection of reality, it has some quality of its own that is very attractive. It's probably this: chiaroscuro the treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting. an effect of contrasted light and shadow.
Here is a very old song from 1946 - 73 years ago, that is rather humorous.
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
It reminds of the soldiers' songs we sung in the territorial army. The words were very silly but it was great fun belting them out together.
It is expensive
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
The only advantage I can see is you can wear a short coat.

The TRUTH about the Christchurch mosque - YouTube
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
It is a real pity that polarised ideologies only allow for partial truth. There isn't a hope of synthesis without communication.
Schrödingers Tin can. Both open and closed at the same time....
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
I guess the brain can easily conceive the different states of a thing. It can also focus on specifics, see something in a moment of time and work with it.
New Zealand kids perform an indigenous mourning ritual for the massacred Muslim’s.
brentan comments on Mar 19, 2019:
I've just listened to Jordan Peterson saying he found New Zealand to be a very polarised society and the mass-murder recently was a sign of it.

Calling racists racist is ‘racist’, say racists
brentan comments on Mar 18, 2019:
I think they are confusing it with being accused of belonging to a group. The horror!
My daughter was only a second away to be named Jennifer Juniper. Donovan [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Mar 18, 2019:
I guess you dropped Juniper at least.
Hey kids.

Are we going to allow Far-right apologists or possibly even agitators a forum here? Or?

I hope so.

brentan comments on Mar 18, 2019:
What's so terrible about those verses?
I really don't feel like living is worth it today.
brentan comments on Mar 18, 2019:
I attempted suicide at 17 for the same reasons. I'm 64 now and I have always been grateful that I got a second chance at life. Goodness knows it's very hard sometimes but tomorrow is always another day with the hope of change. Believe me. I've been there.

Not sure if anyone else has shared this, but it was posted by my cousin who is a pastor.
brentan comments on Mar 17, 2019:
My old JW teaching teaches that: Jehovah is God Jesus is his son The holy spirit is God's power I don't know Greek so when they say about the spirit that 'he will instruct you in all things' I'm at a bit of a loss. The only thing I do know is that there wasn't a word for 'it' in the English language for centuries and they used 'he' for 'it'. Maybe that explains it but I'm not sure.
Ever wonder if your news source is biased?

brentan comments on Mar 17, 2019:
I think I understand Biblical laws about fornication. I think of them mostly as constraints on sex that doesn't produce offspring. Nowadays bestiality just seems out in left field (pun intended).
Happy Green beer day!

brentan comments on Mar 17, 2019:
Some historians refuse to call it The Great Famine and call it The Great Hunger instead. They claim there was plenty of food in Ireland but it was being shipped out to feed the people in England. Ireland was referred to as 'the breadbasket of the British Empire'. https://bairishstudies.wordpress.com/2016/01/12/175/
Christian Host Bryan Fischer Defends New Zealand Terror Attack As ‘Vigilante Justice’ ...
brentan comments on Mar 17, 2019:
Some Christians have seriously lost their way. They don't understand their own scriptures anymore, such as 'my (Christ's) kingdom is no part of this world', 'be in the world but no part of it' and 'be in subjection to the secular authorities'. They have a gospel that frees them from political concerns and allows them to grow their own spirituality as they wait on their Messiah to return and bring in his new kingdom. I think this wish to do Christ's work for him would be called presumptuousness in the Bible.

LIVIING IN THE MOMENT.
brentan comments on Mar 17, 2019:
Eckart Tolle did a great job of promoting The Power Of Now in the eponymous book. Science is coming on board nowadays with Jill Bolte-Talylor's My Stroke Of Insight, Iain McGilchrest's The Master And His Emissary and Roderick Tweedy's The God Of The Left Hemisphere, which all deal with the idea of the right hemisphere of the brain attending to the now and the left hemisphere to analysis and comparison of the past and future to the now.

Complex Creatures?
brentan comments on Mar 16, 2019:
There's a story in The Canterbury Tales where a knight rapes a young woman and he is allowed to live for a year to see if he can discover what women really want. In the end, a witch tells him that all said and done, women want power over men. When he brought this knowledge back to the court, he was forgiven his crime.
I have a question for everyone that I think is kind of interesting.

....or we, ourselves are God, until told otherwise.

With regards to Brexit
brentan comments on Mar 15, 2019:
I think Blackadder was a comedy that had a serious proposition behind it to make a profit. I think May's Brexit is a comedy that has a serious proposition behind it to reverse the democratic will of the British people.
"Humans are often said to be intensely tribal.
brentan comments on Mar 15, 2019:
I can easily relate to solidarity in the face of physical attack. I'm not half as sure about ideological solidarity. Maybe it needs to be fleshed out as to what the benefits and the disadvantages are. It's weird how it's a bit like a new civil war in America these days.

What Is the Effect of Music on the Listener?
brentan comments on Mar 14, 2019:
I read a book recently that said music is universal because it speaks not to the more analytical left hemisphere of the brain but to more intuitive right hemisphere. If so, I would love to know what our intuition is doing with the music. I think it's something to do with relating to the music, being at one with it and not needing to evaluate it further than appreciation.
JOINDER.
