My next road trip.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
There's a movie in there somewhere.
Any Progressive Rock fans out there?
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Yes, especially Yes.
should have tried this years ago
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
He was supposed to charm the knickers off her.
A horse is a horse, of course, of course...
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Among other things, John's Wort tea was banned. I thought of it as alternative medicine. And I want it back!
A changed man.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
I heard Graham Hancock say on a Ted talk that ayahuasca will get you off dangerous drugs real fast.
are you older than dirt ?
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
..and to dirt I shall return.
Can't catch a break.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Yeah, porn is very repetitive and boring. I wish they would make erotic films with good story lines.
I turned 50 in October 2018.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Some of this is your fault. You are doing your best to hurt her as she does the same to you. And we certainly don't need family members to have a go at us on Facebook, even if they are Trump supporters. You have to change this not so merry-go-round. Get off it because it's toxic. That said, I had a crappy mother too and the only solution I ever came up with that worked was separating myself from her. I hope you find the best way for you.
Jarvis Cocker - "Further Complications" [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
He's right, of course. Complications justify life, not just coffee.
Here is a gem that some folks may wish to add to their like list. [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Excellent! I love that constant undercurrent in all their songs.
Wouldn't you agree?
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
It's amazing to think we looked on these people as especially blessed by God for their forbearance.
I was once asked to leave... Here's how I was feeling... How would you feel?
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
The eyes are the windows of the soul.
Good advice.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Maybe the important thing is they don't talk back.
I hope I find someone who I can have great sex with PLUS a deep connection.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Well now!
Serious gang
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Yeah, he's very shifty-looking.
I usually don’t post older music.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
So sad. It makes me very angry. That's a great song. Sommerville has a terrific voice.
Always give a smile ? to someone ?
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
That's how we know that they are losers so we give them a push off the edge to help evolution along.
I’d like to find some information on the Canaanites and Philistines and all those people ?
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
There is an interesting detail about God apparently having a timeline for the punishment of these peoples.: In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of the Amorites has not yet reached its full measure." - Genesis 15:16. Ironically, this idea of a people who are evil through and through has been the cause of so much suffering for the Jews themselves and it isn't over by any means from what I read in the newspapers.
For all you ex-Catholics out there...
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
Starbucks should offer these in their coffees.
This was me last year!
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
The value of conscience.
Count down for Brexit, no signs of more time for negotiations.
brentan comments on Mar 7, 2019:
My guess is we're about three weeks to the extension of Article 50.
I don't posts these videos in here but just couldn't resist this one.
brentan comments on Mar 6, 2019:
I want to think these guys are actors.
Question for the MAGA folks...
brentan comments on Mar 6, 2019:
I guess it's a myth that doesn't stand up to scrutiny.
How a lot of guitar players got started.
brentan comments on Mar 6, 2019:
Richard, Duke of Gloucester, rails against his sex-mad brother Edward at the start of Richard III: And now, instead of mounting barbèd steeds To fright the souls of fearful adversaries, He capers nimbly in a lady’s chamber To the lascivious pleasing of a lute. Maybe it would be a saxaphone these days.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to ...
brentan comments on Mar 6, 2019:
Darn. Another illusion shattered.
Evolution :)
brentan comments on Mar 6, 2019:
How are we going to hate dead people if nearly all their skulls look alike?
This one is for @Sticks48.
brentan comments on Mar 6, 2019:
A terrific performer. The first concert ticket I ever bought was for one of his concerts. Sadly, it was cancelled. Perhaps it was because he wasn't well known in Ireland at the time or maybe he didn't want to play in the old boxing stadium that was the only venue we had for concerts back then.
PSA Do not tell folks about the smut on their foreheads today - it's Ash Wednesday - it's ...
brentan comments on Mar 6, 2019:
They are expressing their acknowledgment that they are merely mortal sinners in need of redemption, which will be celebrated at Easter.
Hahaahhaahhaaha boooom! Neither one????
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
That Rose was a selfish bitch!
Reduce, reuse, recycle

For a more caring society...
Well I might as well stay home all day!
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Cognitive dissonance. Back to bed!
If a potato is already a potato, then why would I need to buy Instant Potatoes?
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
It saves chewing.
Queens at Heart (1967) Okay, fuck it, maybe it's not LGBTQ History month in the US, but I'm still ...
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
A 'psychological aberration'. When I was a teenager in a mental hospital, a man was admitted who was a cross-dresser. He was the only one who had a divider around his bed in the dormitory. That was the mid-70s. He was treated as an oddity among oddities. He wasn't at all friendly and looked very tough, built as solid as a farmer and always angry. Looking back on it, it was a hopeless situation. I'm sure he returned to the Catholic world around him and we returned to our ignorance.
Racism - social problems are escalating world wide regarding refugees & immigrants.
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
In Ireland, the worry some have is that the culture is dying through immigration. It's a valid concern but i try to look at it from a historical perspective where new people came into the country periodically and made the culture what it is now.
You had better apologize!
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
I see a difference in that customers might think you had to buy four to get them at $2.50 each.
So getting my first colonoscopy in the morning and even though I know how safe it is etc, I am a bit...
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
I don't know anything about it. I just want to wish you the best.
Dennis has good hearing.
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. - Matthew 6:7
Doobie Brothers - Take Me in Your Arms [youtube.com]
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Super band!
There are lessons to learn from gardening
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
The story of Leopold Bloom. Others too.
Poor flag.
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
It's because we killed democracy. I blame the ideologues. I think the only hope is to realise the other side can be right about things too.
NICK CAVE - JUBILEE STREET - Someone posted Nick Cave a couple of days ago which made me think...
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
I enjoyed that.
This conservative "logic" is too familiar
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Why should people be well and happy if their politics are wrong?
The Hubble Space Telescope Has a New Camera Glitch [space.com]
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Hubble, hubble, toil and trouble.
To All My Beautiful Agnostic Sisters❤
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Normal is so boring. I think people are naturally idiosyncratic so normality might be the end result of constraining people's imaginations.
She was one of a kind, and SO damn smart.
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Much respect.
AUTODIDACT.
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
My own experience has meant that while I learned a lot through my own reading, I had lots of notions in my head for many years that were quite wrong. The trouble was there nobody to refute them. There were two things I appreciated in college (and this was in my mid-40s) and they were the feedback from others and also the way you learned to research things properly.
Support traditional marriage.
brentan comments on Mar 5, 2019:
Darn. I thought this might lead to an interesting discussion.

brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:
Where will she plug it in?
I am finished with my latest bout with jury duty.
brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:
That was funny. I know, I know, it shouldn't be.
It is greed to do all the talking but not to want to listen at all. - Democritus
brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:
I started speaking expansively when I realised nobody want to risk talking.
Here's one for the math nerds. :)
brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:

Amy Winehouse - All My Lovin' [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:

And it’s gone...
brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:
Miss Kathleen, your new picture is very nice!
Well, this was a weird glitch.
brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:
I was wont to make mistakes but I won't allow it to happen if I can.
This is why I don't support teaching cursive
brentan comments on Mar 4, 2019:
Their script was their equivalent of the Latin mass for the clergy.

A man for all seasons.
No, no, don’t help me.
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
But, but, but.....he did get help.
Should Christians Date Non-Belivers? Advise From a Christian
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
I always understood that as encouraging people of faith not to link up with unbelievers because their faith would be in danger of being undermined.
I am old ??
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
'I grow old, I grow old I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled'
It's time to just be happy?
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
I wonder if they they ever did a Happiness For Dummies book?
are you free?
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
True.
Eva Cassidy.
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
That's a super version of the song. I loved the finger-picking too.
Glad I’ve irritated some people’s demons and saw the true colours
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
Or vice-versa.
Bread is awesome
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
A book like The Asperger's Guide to Flirting should be a great help.
More Hypocrisy in church
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
The Lord protects his own.
Harsh, but true
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
The rhino is doing better than me these days.
The river from the source to the sea.
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
That's a very nice piece of music.
Who's afraid of the Green New Deal??? [theintercept.com]
brentan comments on Mar 3, 2019:
Oh no! Not just communism but ecological communism! We're doomed.
Nothing like an erection at the dinner table
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
Well now, getting wood from wood.
No face and I refuse more than 5
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I saw you in Spirited Away. You were very good.
Available in dictionaries everywhere.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I was surprised and delighted to see someone use the expression 'trompe d'oeil' recently. It means trick/deceit of the eye. Here's an example:
MUSIC: So much incredible talent in the world! Is there a group that you love and wish you had ...
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I had a chance to see AC/DC in Seattle in the 90s and passed it up.I wanted to see them but I was a JW at the time so it wouldn't have been right. I still regret it.
The struggle is real.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I saw that in Logan. What's going on?
Good to know...
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I hope a trade union rep doesn't turn up.
I take care of my mom who has some dementia.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I don't think confusing someone with dementia is a good thing.
The Cure - A Strange Day I will always love this song. [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I was delighted to hear that they are playing a big anniversary concert in Sydney. They are also playing my city Dublin in the summer.
Should we atheists expose the lies of theists whenever possible, or should we sacrifice truth for ...
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
Live and let live.
Thought for food: I recently had a “wonderful” experience in one group on this site.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I think it's turning the forum into groups of echo-chambers. People seem to love the sense of belonging.
THIS WOMAN has fought a thousand battles and is still standing.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I feel sure she must be me too.
I have a question to members of this group.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I wondered about it too. At what stage are bones deemed to be simply historical interest? Perhaps I'm asking that question because I more or less accept this is how we learn about the past and it hurts nobody. Then I find out to my surprise that Native Americans aren't seeing it the same way. Are they wrong? Darned if I know what their religious beliefs about the dead and death in general are. I wonder, too, if they see a point in time where human bones are less personal to them.
I streamed Bohemian Rhapsody last night.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I read that the movie seemed to be a vehicle for the other members of the band to distance themselves from Mercury's excesses.
So has anyone else run into this?
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I'm tempted that way too. Something to connect to. Something to connect to with fellow believers.
Robert A. Heinlein Quotes on God and Religion
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
He might be the man behind Dave Allen's joke. Anyway, I agree with everything he said there.
I welcome you to join my live broadcast about life in Sweden taking place on Saturday, March 9, 2019...
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
Multiculturalism must be great for the inferior culture.
Pearly whites!
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
We should domesticate them with dentistry.
Some of my favorite things
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
The poor man's pizza. Very tasty too.
A very apt meme given the drama in the AG Senate.
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
Victims aren't what they used to be.
Hard to feel more angry. Makes one want to resort to arms to resist. If only I were not um my age
brentan comments on Mar 2, 2019:
I recommend cocoa.
Prevent workplace injuries.
brentan comments on Mar 1, 2019:

It's a vicious cycle!

Sadly, that life.

They could really build up their self-esteem.
I object...

It was only vanilla sex anyway.
Religion's Relationship to Happiness, Civic Engagement and Health | Pew Research Center
brentan comments on Mar 1, 2019:
I guess it's that nice sense of belonging, having a support group and having some certainties in life. I think lots of people try to copy that on social media platforms but it might not work as well as the real thing.
See who corrects my post this time.
brentan comments on Mar 1, 2019:
It's similar to Chris Rock explaining the difference between a job and a career. But fuck these people who don't have to suffer boring jobs and unrealised lives telling everyone how it should be. It's like the folk at the top of the Maslow Hierarchy telling everyone they should be able to come up and enjoy the view.
had me fooled.
brentan comments on Mar 1, 2019:
It's terrific. I'll bet you could use one of those tools in Photoshop to change the texture of the ledge to that of the ground. Then I doubt we could still make out the edge and perceive the height.
What's a matter?
brentan comments on Mar 1, 2019:
I didn't know Einstein felt that way about matter. I've recently read a book called The Master and His Emissary by Iain McGilchrist. It's about the brain. He is currently writing a book where he will propose that there is no matter at all - only processes. My guess is he wants to link matter, non-matter and consciousness together and view them as different expressions of processes. I hope he finishes it soon.
We are not old until regrets take the place of dreams.
brentan comments on Mar 1, 2019:
Bop til you drop.
