FLYING WIZARD IRL
Cue crashing guitars…
They just go around the ring world forever in their flying gibbets. Such were their crimes.
If you call crime-fighting a crime… then, yes.
*squints* is that you then? Sorry, got baffled by unexpected content! Kind of reminds me of blade runner there, but I’d expect hover cars rather than hover people.
That looks like it would be a blast and I want to go have a turn.
Different subject: Scott, do you have anything to say in regard to Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize in Literature?
More importantly Scott, do you have anything to SING in regard to Bob Dylan winning the Nobel Prize in Literature?
Yes. I do.
I heartily recommend it. I made a total ass of myself by booming out the old Superman theme as I zipped across, but I was bulletproof, so it didn’t matter.
As for the Nobel: it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving asshole. (Whatever respect I had for Dylan evaporated whilst watching Scorcese’s documentary: he’s the kind of guy who gains altitude by tossing friends (and lovers) out of the balloon basket.)
I’ve never had any respect for the Nobel prize for literature. I loved the one committee member’s reply when asked whether Dylan deserved the Nobel: “Deserve? Of course he deserved it. He received it.” That says it all. Otherwise, it is nice to see cultural relevance playing a factor, as opposed to resemblance to fossils.
“Otherwise, it is nice to see cultural relevance playing a factor, as opposed to resemblance to fossils.”
I was thinking something similar when I heard the news and was the reason for asking the questions.
Thanks. Glad you had fun in Vegas.
Just wondering if you have any comments about whats going on with Bill C-16 and the recent ‘activities’ over at UofT?
Is that the transgender bill? What’s happening at UofT?
Yes, kinda. Its about amendments to the charter of rights that would make professor Peterson’s lectures “hate speach”. He’s fighting back against what he believes to be an infringement on freedom of speech and the a step down the road to a totalitarian society. Any who, his book maps of meaning seems to strike a chord with the concepts of EAMD and the darkness that’s comes before.
Here’s a link to his protest and SJW trying to shut him down:
PS: I can’t wait for TUC, your writing has scratched an itch I’ve always felt about the world, religions and perception. Keep up the good work !
So I’ve surfed a few sites, watched the video, read a G&M article and I think the guy is dead on in his analysis of the impact of criminalizing varieties of expression. The left needs to understand that criminalizing these things feeds into a process of counter-identification that right-wing demagogues are already beginning to exploit. I live on the faultline. I feel like I’ve been watching it happen around me, the accumulating mass of workaday people identifying against, rather than for progressive agendas. Increasingly, they see them as both pious and absurd, and the ability to pass legislation as a glaring sign of some basic malfunction in the System.
Speech itself is becoming a bureaucratically policed form of social interaction.
That simply strikes me as crazy. We are going to suffer a parade of Trumpish men if the trend continues.
Thanks for the great reply Scott, I’m no academic and couldn’t have articulated it any better. The more ‘awake’ I find myself as I stop and inject a healthy sense of doubt into what I see every day….as well as my perceptions…the greater sense I have of being a stranger in a strange land.
The Apocalypse is high!
Lol, on to the coffers!
