Re: Music

I wonder if London 2012 will bring simplicity back to the Olympic Games - then again, is it ever that easy to be an Olympian...?

Re: Music

Glad to hear of your success, AS - you truly deserve it ! I popped into your website once -how I got there, I have no idea - anyway, it's all good stuff. What's this artist's cafe ? As for me...let the music say it... Still figuring stuff out... Inside Out...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPAwrtm-JK...

Re: Music

I like the song I posted above because it reminds me of wikileaks. It's as if it is a song from the seducer which is America, to it's people it calls 'babe'... I eerily fell in love with this song for that reason...and because the guys voice reminds me a little bit of bob dylan...raspy and weird in...

Haven't posted on here for a while; still think it should be in 'The Lounge', but what the heck.

This kind of tranquil spot is not for everybody. It worked for me today - any other time it might just irritate the life outta me :-)

Re: World Without Anger

I've thought about this some more and I don't think losing in sport counters Joel Mark's argument. It's just that the morality of sport is confusing and condatictory. In sport, it is considered admirable to care so much about winning that you feel elated and proud when you do win and angry and asha...

Re: World Without Anger

Here are some first thoughts: How can there be a world without anger, as long as there are humans in it ? We have clear notions of what is right and wrong; however, they are not absolute and will vary according to context. It is not always wrong to be angry; right to be honest. So many perspectives,...

Re: Which, if any, e-reader ?

John, thanks again; and yes, my eyes boggled at the price of the protective cover - you could get a quarter of a Kindle for that ! I have been looking at the top 100 free books - fascinating to compare with the 'paid for' list. Coming in at no.71 - Goethe's 'Erotica Romana' ; a Hume lowdown 'History...

Re: Which, if any, e-reader ?

The Kindle is the one to have at present. Has a great look and feel, very page-like and can be read in most lighting conditions, heads and shoulders above the others. Pity it hasn't got the smell and texture tho' :) It's the 'at present' that stops me from buying, that and the £110; they seem to be...

Re: Which, if any, e-reader ?

John : I got a kindle at Christmas and to be honest my intent was to use it for convenience with certain types of books and not to have it replace the experience of reading from a traditional paper book. What a great present ! What 'certain types of books' is it better for ? ... I don't find the exp...

Re: Which, if any, e-reader ?

I downloaded the Kindle app to my PC to try it out. The other day I purchased my first book. I like it. I don't know if I'll ever buy a machine, though. Thanks for that; I had no idea that you could do so such a thing. The free Amazon application was easy to download. I registered, as per my Amazon...

Which, if any, e-reader ?

Hello

I love the feel of books. Never been tempted by the machine.
Now considering a Kindle purchase; but already have so many books on shelves still to be read. The agonies of indecision.

Anyone here delighted with an e-reader, and what makes it better than the book ?
I am open to persuasion...

'How to read...

Hume' by Simon Blackburn, 2008, Granta Publications. A great little book, at just over 100 pages; a way to understand Hume 'properly' (?), looking at 10 of his most important moments. I'm not sure about ' How to...' books, when it comes to philosophical interpretations; however, this wee gem helped ...
