Sometimes the Internet outdoes itself.

Music for an odd mood

Great Opening

Sometimes we all feel like we're the last defenders of Fort Zinderneuf.

1939 truly was a wonderful year for movies.

Being a Man

I'm working on a long post inspired by this comment (#68) over at StandFirm.

The idea is that stereotypically men define themselves by what they do, women define themselves by their relationships. Being a stereotype, while there is a great deal of truth to it, there is also some falsity.

The problem comes about when we assume a false identity. The drum movement of the last decade is an example of men not being men so much as trying to 'butch up'. Synthetic identity is a good way to self destruction, especially when it comes to something central as sex.

This may take a year or two.

Assuming I get permission from my wife. ;)

Heretical Revisionism!

Pure Gold

Robb Allen found a 'smoking gun' memo that, as he points out, was not only typed, but faxed which doubles its truthiness right there.

I read it, had a good chuckle and forgot it. Then I came back to it and read the comments. Pure bloggy gold, is what they are. Just about every whack job cliche is to be found in them thar comments.

A Truly Wonderful Confrontation

The opening scene is one of the best showdowns in English literature.

For William Gates

This just reminds me of him, somehow....
