“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

Kapkao, I second that "I like this" to KMFDM. I saw their 20th anniversary show in Seattle in Pioneer Square at the old Phoenix Underground. Wow is all I can say about that show. It was incredible!

For me, that whole 'intervention' word comes a little too close to home (hint: I was considered passively suicidal last year because I wouldn't take a medicine that left me feeling like an emotional/psychological wreck most of the time, yet I needed in order to stay alive for much longer than 4 or 5 weeks. This label may have also had something to do with my incredibly self-destructive behavior as a teenager... alas, neither here nor there.)

On the other hand:

I suspect Answers resents the fact that I found (or so I believe) and posted a pic of his seventh 'cat'; a kitten who later grew up into a Bengal Tiger. The death of this animal left him feeling "toast"... a sentiment I can relate to all too easily.  My justification for such trollish nonsense is that I wanted to see how he might react to such emotionally charged imagery. Would my shallow attempt to 'pour salt in his metaphorical wound' make him irrational and unnecessarily vigilant, or would he simply put on a thick skin and quietly remark "Haha. Nice try, idiot."? (paraphrasing, of course)

He seems to have chosen the latter response, to which I can only be impressed with.

old crow does kick ass, but they're not bluegrass.  unlike most styles of music, bluegrass is a relatively clearly defined genre with specific characteristics (which makes it boring both to play and listen to after awhile, IMO).  i would call them old time revival, with just a touch of alt country.

Then you missed my point. The deal was the title of the song more than the bluegrass cover of it.

 

For the record, I hail from Connecticut (where white clam pizza and the Frisbee were both invented. Also, the home of the Sea Wolf submarine and the first state where powered flight happened (the Wright brothers only get credit because they were media whores)).

 

I happen to be hugely into folk music in all of it's forms. I once payed $400 for two tickets to see the Clancy brothers live and those turned out to be fairly crappy seats.

 

BTW, did you know that both John Denver and Rodger McGuinn got their start in the same band?

 

But I digress...

 

If you like some kicking bluegrass covers, you should check out the Canadian band Luther Wright and the Wrongs. They have a whole album that is a cover of Pink Floyd's The Wall. Amazon does not seem to have it in stock very often and I refuse to buy their low bit rate MP3s. Especially for something like that. Come on! That would cost like $25 for low bit rate copies. If I wait long enough, the CD will turn up for like $15. Then I can rip it myself to OGG level 5.

Then you stand impressed.

 

Seriously, this is the internet. Those with thin skins are invited to become hermits.

 

In other news, yes, that is my cat. However, you got the wrong cat.

 

Also, cats tend not to grow into huge tigers. What you missed was that the dearly departed was of the breed known as Bengal. They are an out-cross from a house cat and an Asian Snow Leopard (take that biblical “each after their own type” theists). You can find plenty of videos of the breed on youtube.

 

Mine would wait for me to come home and then jump from the floor to my shoulder. Being that I am a mountain of half Scot/half Irish, that is no small feat. Also, it was kitty-illegal for me to fully shut the shower because he liked to join me in there.

I guess I'm blind, and I couldn't read your post on your seventh cat back in TDS's avatard thread.

Must be all the lezbo/s&m porno I've been watching a good bit of lately... I think there's a good bit of fuzz growing on my hands at the moment, too!

Well... I'm a hermit, and my skin is pretty damn thick most days- except when it comes to blatant idiocy and fallacious logic. Where's that leave me?

(Seriously? Seriously! Internet basically makes up for 95% of my connection to the real world. I absorb information much more easily in written format, and the social interactions are more rewarding in this particular vector. I tend to scoff at anyone who suggests that I need a 'real (social) life', because I can readily assure everyone that I don't, unless I'm seeking out a 'Hellkat'-type mate: a siren-woman who is as aggressive, ambitious, calculated, savvy, and sexually liberated as I am when I'm at my best... BUT ISN'T COMPLETELY GAY, DAMMIT!)

NSS.


I'm curious, AiGS... can you think of anything... 'sacred'... in your personal system of values? Are there things you consider taboo?

Are their indignations for which you can not imagine yourself tolerating? In my case, the answer is yes.... but I wonder what your answer is.
