  1. Whatsup guys? I recently created a streaming radio station and would be happy to show anyone on this forum how to start up your own streaming broadcast for free. One of my buddies showed me how to get mine up and running and I'm infinitely thankful! The service is 100% free too and ran by the same people who made Winamp (Nullsoft). If anyone wants to tune in to my broadcasts...here are some instructions for doing so. These instructions will only work if I'm actually broadcasting. If I'm offline, you won't be able to access my Shoutcast page or listen. I'm actually broadcasting live right now (9:22 PST, 7/17/06) in fact so if you are bored and want to listen to some great online rock radio (alternative, punk, new-wave, some 80's)...here is how to access my stream. irst...download Winamp. www.winamp.com get the free unbundled version. There are several sweet Winamp skins that look way cooler than the classic or modern skins that come with the Winamp download and the other skins are more functional too. I recommend going to Winamp.com clicking on "Skins" and downloading the skin called "EMP." You can find it by typing Emp in the search bar on the skins page. anyway...once you have Winamp downloaded, installed, and customized to your liking, there are two ways to access my streaming radio broadcast. Method A: 1) Open Winamp 2) Press Control + L 3) Enter this URL = Method B : 1) In your internet browser, go here: 2) Click "Listen" I hope you can tune in! I'm going to play a lot of cool tunes and if you let me know you are online (Myspace message or AIM works wonders), I will give you a shout out on the air. -Evan P.S = My AIM SN is Tryptonique

    Ah. Eco the Dolphin is amazing. I forgot about that one! I also like stuff from Eco 2: Tides of Time (or whatever the title is). -E

    awesome! Thanks!
  4. Wow! Christina Aguilera can be hit or miss depending on what she is wearing or how she has her hair done. Sometimes she looks totally trashy and can look like utter crap and at other times she is drop dead gorgeous (like in the Genie in a Bottle video or in that slideshow). Yay for that slideshow though. -E
  5. What band do you work with (or are you speaking of your own personal band)? Did you get into law to relate it to working in the music business? If so...what do you wish to end up doing in the music business? I saw that you are working for the public defender so these questions might be way off base for what you are planning on doing with your life. The reason I'm asking is because I'm looking at law school with the purpose of working in the music business and I was wondering if that was your plan as well.
  6. ??? Telling the woman would be callous and is ultimately unnecessary. Besides..unless the man in question told the woman himself the woman probably wouldn't believe anyone who told her that Man X was settling for her (moroever, the person telling the woman that would naturally have his motives called into question and rightly so). -E
  7. Looking for a good rock band? check out City Sleeps: www.myspace.com/citysleeps Those guys are signed to Maverick/Warner and are dropping their album out this summer which was produced by John Feldmann (The Used, Story of the Year, Mest, Goldfinger). -E
  8. Oh yeah. I forgot Boomer. Whoops!
  9. How about some of the lovely ladies from Battlestar Galactica? I started watching Season 1 2 days ago and I'm hooked! A great show with some very attractive women. Here are two. 1: Katee Sackhoff untitled1.bmp untitled2.bmp 2. Tricia Helfter Helfer.bmp Helfer2.bmp MoreHelfer.bmp
  10. If Dondigitalia is indeed correct in the fact that Ayn Rand (in private conversations with Harry Binswanger and Leonard Peikoff) later admitted that more study needs to be done on the issue before a definite conclusion is made, then perhaps we should go into the scientific/psychological evidence? I read a really interesting article in the current issue of Scientific American Mind (February) which basically concludes that most people don't have a choice about whether or not to be gay, however evidence indicates that some "gay" people are capable of resexualizing themselves into being "straight" and vice versa. For a decent scientific treatment of this issue, I recommend picking up this issue at your local newsstand or you can go to this link and for $5 have access to the article in question. Just my 2 cents. -Evan Also as a sidenote, the article is titled "Do gays have a choice?" and it is by Robert Epstein.
  11. *LOL @ Exaltron's comment* Nice witty style. Props, dude. I don't understand why people buy Marx's silly views on property. John Locke's complete philosophical system is chock full of flaws, but he has some incredibly perceptive ideas regarding property (and how the introduction of money makes everyone's potential prosperity go way beyond simply controlling finite resources) that make Marx really irrelevant in the big picture.
  12. Yeah...you're right. I should have said what I meant (doh) and said that American oil workers in Nigeria don't have a right to be protected by the U.S government while they are overseas. You're 100% right that Nigeria would have the moral obligation of protecting people within its borders . As you said, if a citizen acknowledges that the government of the country he is visiting is unstable or doesn't have a good chance of protecting his rights he should not visit that country. If he does we can either conclude that he doesn't value his rights very much or is irrational (perhaps on some level he thinks that bad things "just can't happen to him.").
  13. I think that is part of why borders are established. Borders tell everyone in clear terms which territory is going to be protected. If some oil worker is going to an unstable region of Nigeria, they don't have the "right" to be protected in Nigeria because American borders do not extend there. There is no jurisdiction. The reason why this has to be is because it goes both ways. Imagine if Nigeria was obligated to protect a Nigerian student on a student visa at some hick college in the the south? That kid would be a Nigerian citizen and he would have put himself in a hostile environment to some extent (racism is still sort of prevalent in certain parts of the south from what I understand). What would be the proper response of the Nigerian government? Should they send in troops to protect that citizen or send in a gun ship or two? The question is totally rhetorical in nature. I think if you analyze this a little more you can see that borders exist for a very concrete reason. The state department warns U.S citizens about places they consider "hot spots" where risk is high for endangerment. For example, the U.S state department warned people (in the 80s) not to travel to places like Beiruit or Sierra Leone. The reason WHY they warned those travelers/workers is because they could not guarentee their safety or use a disproportionate amount of military resources to guarantee such safety or a rescue operation. I hope that sort of makes sense.
  14. I don't have my copy of TF on me right this second, but I can remember many times in which Dominique and Toohey exchange verbal barbs and sort of spar communication wise. I sort of remember exchanges where Dominique was like, "I'm so impressed that someone could be so completely, totally, and knowingly morally as morally bankrupt as you, Elsworth." (in response to some of the crap editorials that Elsworth wrote that were as anti-man as humanly possible). She never used the term "morally bankrupt" but I think she had said some things along the lines of, "I'm impressed that someone could write such ridiculous garbage with a straight face knowing full well what they wrote and its implications." On each occasion when she made those barbs, Elsworth would almost always reply with a, "Thank you my dear" or some sort of formal acknolwedgement. At least that is how I remember things. Am I totally off my rocker here? Lol.
