  1. Three videos I produced with some help from QCFA fine art; [media=] ]
  2. I would say you've got 4 days before the movies comes out. Go rent the first one. I think having seen the first one helps a lot. You get to know the characters etc.
  3. Hahahahaha! Wow, can't believe it came out in South Africa before the USA. Straaaange.
  4. How has nobody mentioned this movie yet? Pure fucking awesomeness. That is all.
  5. I'm confused. How exactly does one do that?
  6. I regret clicking a single one of those links. And what the hell is up with all those perverse dolls on his profile page?!
  7. Unbelievable. One of the finest sculptures I've ever seen.
  8. I love when people invoke the "Do they deserve to die?" argument. It is utterly moronic. Who said anything about people deserving to die? Nobody deserves to die, unless they're murders or they've somehow otherwise invited their own death upon themselves. The real question is: Does an individual with poor health deserve to steal from me?
  9. Yeh, same here in South Africa. Many people I know (who haven't yet formed strong intellectual opinions) will eat Moore's shit up. It's not necessarily about preaching to the choir, but preaching to those who don't know any better. That's where it hurts the most.
  10. He more than likely blames them for his obesity.
  11. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=56990 Yep.
  12. 5 Stars. Great video!

  13. I've put together a 2-part video on Youtube of my favourite piano concertos, together with some of my favourite pieces of art. Hope you guys enjoy
  14. Kendall, your home (as it is now) is perfect. Exactly how I like my interiors to look. Modern, yet livable. It's a pity you have to move.
  15. I just posted a video on YouTube of my 10 favourite symphonies: Cheers!
  16. Um, yes. Netanyahu is MUCH MUCH MUUUCH better than Ahmedanijad. And while both are absolute tripe, the Old Testament (especially how it's interpreted by most Jews today) is far better than the Koran. George Washington was a religious man too. Doesn't mean you can't have a certain amount of respect for him. The same applies here. Sure, Netanyahu is no Washington and has his own set of philosophical faults, but he's also got some serious virtues too i.e. his intollerance of islamic totalitarianism and his advocacy of a free-er market.
  17. Romanticism as Rand defines the term? Do you feel it was an example of how the world ought to be?
  18. As RationalBiker said above, "I hope when I go see a movie that it is generally stand alone and that I don't have to go buy all the related literature to get the picture." I have not read the comic, so my opinion here is based solely on the movie. It's not good enough to say, "But the comic explained so and so differently". What I am describing here is my interpretation of the movie, as this is a discussion based on the movie, not the comic. Most people who see the movie will not have read the comic, nor will they know much about it at all. Perhaps the comic is completely different, I wouldn't know. But once again, we're not talking about the comic here, we're talking about the movie, which may or may not be a different interpretation of the original story, so all these comic-based justifications are completely irrelevant. I completely disagree, and I think you mean "means". While the friends I went with (most of whom had actually read the comic) thought that Rorschach was in the right and Ozzy in the wrong, quite a number of them still felt that Rorschach needed to die for the sake of "preserving peace". That while the means may have been evil, they were entirely necessary. The 'hapilly ever after' impression that the movie gives off at the end does absolutely nothing in the way of negating this idea either.
