  1. Here is a Funky Soul tune that has some pretty cool lyrics. Sorry I don't have them in their entirety, I was taking them down since I couldn't find them on google. Teddy Pendergrass - You Can't Hide From Yourself http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPHjJ7ahcA8&feature=fvw "You can't hide from yourself / everywhere you go there you are. The truth is a light - a light shining within, When you look in the mirror do you see a foe or a friend? ... Make peace with yourself before you can love another Understand who and what you are before you can go any further ... You can't hide... look in the mirror there you are You can't run from yourself, there you are - you can't run, no!"

  4. OH MY GOD. WOW HI, another Objectivist sneakerhead! I would love to commission a pair at some point, your work is so dope!!
  5. Fusion Groove Orchestra - The Dream (Miguel Migs' Deep Dreamer Dub Remix)
  6. I completely agree with this review, Brothers Bloom blew me away. I went in expecting to see a 4 out of 10 and instead saw a 9. West and I have now seen it twice in theatres, the second time simply reaffirming all of our positive judgments of this film. Everyone should see this film.

  9. Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm yards ahead of ya! I've loved Godward for years
  10. I love electronic dance music! Funky house, some drum and bass, some trance... I especially like Mark Farina, Stephan Pompougnac, Gui Boratto, Thievery Corporation, S-Tone Inc, Daft Punk, Justice, etc
  11. OKAY.. I'll bump this thread: Who here is for sure signed up for OCON? Which classes are you signed up for? Will you be staying at the Seaport? I'm in Wood / Kenner S1, and Daniels / J. Lewis S2. (A la Carte, I'm not doing the general sessions) Who would be interested in an OO.netter meetup? Who here has signed up for those overpriced meet-and-greet / closing reception dinners?
  12. The word 'bimbo' was used in the header of the story (which i copy/pasted into the title of the post), and I'm sure was the choice of the writer/editor -- for shock value -- and not a word used by the scientists in their journal article.
  13. A study of more than 2,000 female twins showed that those with greater emotional intelligence had larger numbers of orgasms. Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to monitor and manage feelings and emotions in oneself and others. The findings suggest that low EI is a risk factor for female orgasmic disorder, one of the most common sexual problems suffered by women. Up to 30 per cent of women find it difficult or impossible to reach a climax during sexual intercourse. Women in the bottom 25 per cent of the emotional intelligence range had twice the normal risk of infrequent orgasm. Lead author, psychologist Andrea Burri, from King's College, said: "Emotional intelligence seems to have a direct impact on women's sexual functioning by influencing her ability to communicate her sexual expectations and desires to her partner." The results of the study appear today in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. FULL ARTICLE HERE from the UK Telegraph ---------------- I am not sure how many grains of salt to take this with, but it was kind of interesting / funny, none-the-less. Do you guys notice this correlation in your own history of sexual partners?
  14. The Unseen Suitor Confidences Venetian Flower Seller Flirtation by the Well Daydreaming Le Travail Eugene de Blaas, also known as Eugene von Blaas or Eugenio de Blaas (24 July 1843 – 10 February 1932) was an Italian painter in the school known as Academic Classicism. He was born at Albano, near Rome, to Austrian parents. His father Karl, also a painter, was his teacher. The family moved to Venice when Karl became Professor at the Academy in Venice. He often painted scenes in Venice. He became professor in the Academy of Venice.
  15. "Team John Galt" all the way!! Not only is he ~the man~ (who stopped the motor of the world) but I really don't like red-heads (sorry, Roark!)
  16. I agree with Miovas about rational goals / efficacious action being the only way to gaining true self-esteem. To take this one step further, your friends could benefit from (a) Adopting or at least learning about Objectivism. It is important to have a clear, rational philosophy in your toolbelt if you ever want to learn how to systematically act in your interest and thus gain self-esteem ( Reading some self-help books (I also advocate reading books by cognitive behavioral therapists) in order to help break bad patterns / break through the paralyzing "hang-ups" of fear, inability to execute goals, bad "computer code" in your subconscious Harry Binswanger's wife, Jean Moroney is a professional who teaches managers and other professionals how to use targeted thinking to grapple with the pace and complexity of business. She suggests a few books on her website that I think could help your friends on the path of changing bad habits / vicious cycles. I own a few of these: David Allen "Getting Things Done" Dennis Greenberger & Christine Padesky "Mind Over Mood" Alan Lakein "How to Get Control of Your Time and Your Life" James Prochaska, John Norcross & Carlos Diclimente "Changing for Good" Barbara Sher "I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was" LINK TO JEAN'S WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION ** Just remember, self-esteem is the PRODUCT of a particular way of living. Your friends can't try to gain self-esteem *as such* but must live a life that promotes true self-esteem.
  17. Thanks everyone I'm glad you like them!
  18. "INHERITORS OF EARTH" "Red Sonja" "The Cartographer" "HIGHRISES; CITIES ON THE MOON" Editorial Illustration for a Ray Bradbury short story in Playboy Magazine January 2000 "The Museum" "The Imager" "The Wire Continuum" "Superman" Donato Giancola (1967-) is a multiple award winning American artist specializing in science fiction and fantasy illustration.

Giancola describes himself and his work as a 'classical-abstract-realist working with science fiction and fantasy' and lists Hans Memling, Jan Van Eyck, Velázquez, Caravaggio, Vermeer, Piet Mondrian, Rembrandt, Rubens and Titian as his favorite artists. More of his work can be found HERE. Thanks to Ari Armstrong's blog post back in December for tipping me off to Giancola's art!
  19. These are beautiful! West introduced me to Marshennikov's work a while ago and I'm pleased to know that there are painters like him producing this quality of work! edit: typo
  20. Salut Oni, bienvenu! (Desolée, mon Francais a beaucoup des fauts) C'est super qu'il y a des étudients d'Objectivisme en France, un bastion de Socialisme avec un facade d'une "Republique". Je sais que les citoyens francaises aiment plus 'le collectivisme' (ca c'est un mot? je ne sais pas les traductions literale pour les mots d'Ayn Rand) que les citoyens des EU. En 2011, j'ira etudier en France pour un ans, alors, peut etre vous renderiez-vous et parler au sujet des idées d'Ayn Rand et peut etre practiquer notre bilanguilisme! mdr... ~Athéna Edit; Est-ce que tu as lu les livres d'Ayn Rand en Anglais ou un traduction Francais?
  21. I mis-voted because I was multi-tasking and not paying close enough attention (i voted for unisex bathrooms instead of single-sex bathrooms) BUT had i not misvoted, i would have voted for single-sex bathrooms because, on the whole, women's bathrooms are typically cleaner than men's bathrooms. I have worked at jobs where I had to clean both men and women's bathrooms every night, and without fail the men always made bigger messes than the women. As a woman, I prefer to avoid these messes. Plus, if there's only one bathroom and someone shits on the floor, or is taking forever, or something else rude/vile, then what is everyone else supposed to do??
  22. I see your rubber eraser, and I raise you a latex allergy
