    @pedant -I’m replying to you whilst Thane is cooking dinner.

    If we reply you know no-one’s food is poisoned.  No worries with the taggin’.

    @Winston  thank you -and how are you doin’?

    My laptop is being “checked over”and I’m borrowing one but unfortunately it won’t let me access facebook which is how, sometimes, I communicate.  Also, rather fo…[Read more]

    hi Puro here -brute force prevented an earlier response.

    I will go to the fth  ta.

    While at it, I’m at 20 odd mins into ep 1 of 13R and notice Jessica’s comment “I’m already in Hell…”whilst sucking a red lolly pop. Buffy memories. Actually, too close for coincidence.  But prob confirmation bias.

    I’ll head to the msg page: if I can get there

    @pedant

    Do I get credit for finding the Little Shop?

    I got lost. I was in the ceiling for awhile and, later, I became a floor puddle.

    Every time I clicked near the two or three people standing near  the Lift area (to the left of where everyone else is grouped watching telly/etc) they disappeared. Completely vanished!

    Happily it did my head in…[Read more]

    @missy @pedant @JanetteB

    Well well. This IS new. First time I’ve ever responded on a blog, blog post or topic

    It’s Thane’s dad with Thane who is waving hello

    Lots of things I know nothing about. Which is why I like experts. But I know this: whether any hemisphere was once ice or not and whether or not the dry and dusty plains were rainforests…[Read more]

  • thane16 replied to the topic The Maldovarium

    @janetteB you should include some of those posts in your newsletter! Thing is, a lot of what we cook does come from other countries originally. Her Greek dish, the vegetarian curry (which was Grandma’s invention and won a prize 20 years ago in some magazine) and the spicy pumpkin curry.

    We’re not really a meat and 3 vege family. But the doctor…[Read more]

    @missy

    Mum said “””yuck” to the whale meat and said that Dad didn’t like turnips until she started cooking them and sprouts I like which is a surprise.

    I’m with you on the pumpkin which is everywhere in roasts and soups but Mum does make a simple pumpkin soup with salt, pepper and cream -very thick. She does a Thai one with coconut milk,…[Read more]

    @cathannabel

    How are you?!  I read your post and so did Mum and she did say to me “watch for Cath’s work at the university.”

    And I DID forget so I’m really glad for the reminder. Mum and I were really interested in the lectures and how fascinating they were -when you showed us where to find the topics that were around and advertised last…[Read more]

    This is waaaay late Mr @whisht . But happy birthday (belated by about 3 months nearly?).

    From Thane16.

     

    PS: mum loves this song and this particular video.

    @xad4  @pedant

    That’s awesome! Mum loves those ospreys and I really liked just sitting there, last winter (here) and holding a hot chocolate listening to the wind and the birds and watching them fly about.

    Thanks @pedant and @bluesqueakpip for your advice and ideas about identity. The teacher said I could use John Searle to support my thesis…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip Hey The Gang!

    Thank you SO much. That is SUCH a help. I’m already motivated to think Jack is the same Jack  -and by that I don’t mean my facts are changed to suit the theory -but that other philosophers have already indicated jack is jack.

    I don’t think we’re supposed to mention Kant or Freud/Jung yet which I’d like to do. Kant…[Read more]

    @alpackahacka sorry, there, missed your name! Also welcome to the site. Good place, this.

  • thane16 replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @missy Hey. No worries All good. I agree.

    Alpackahacka  love your moniker and picture.

    I think you’re right. He would be an enemy? Makes sense.

    @whisht Happy late birthday to you! Mum thinks it was 2-3 weeks ago! Belated returns

    To anyone intelligent: which is all of you.

    I’m doing this thing in philosophy called Jack’s Problem. Jack sits in…[Read more]

  • thane16 replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    @whisht LOL

    thought this applies to our now older regeneration considering the diamond he had to smash thru and the different names they had for him.  probably someone else posted it well before I did though.

    @pedant  I think you would also like Pink Floyds ‘shine On You Crazy Diamond’

     

  • thane16 replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @pedant

    Mr Fish Man! Thank you. I obviously mucked that up. Mum would’ve been embarrassed -she still will be.

    And I’m trying to make sense of John Locke. Mum says “economist” and “determinist” and my teacher and philosophy tutor says “Locke is a memory believer”

    @missrori Big mistake there. I know Mark Knopfler’s from Glasgow and the British world of music so what I meant to say was “wishes from Australia” Anyway, hope you know what I mean  🙂

    From Thane.

  • thane16 replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @missrori @jimthefish

    Hello there Miss Rori, Maybe this song from Australia will cheer you up?

    @craig

    @jimthefish @whisht

    The Lana Del Ray is the same as similar to Creep. There’s no way round that. The middle 8/12 *cough * reminds me of something .. from Sgt Peppers or Revolver actually. That’s happily nicked, studied as well.

    Hallooo! You called the friendly musician? Please press 1 for sales;  2 for technical difficulty and 3 for possible truth and fact mixed with fun.

    Yep, Jim, the chords of the 50s are as much of a cross-over as the early 60s. And this has happened before.

    @mudlark @Ichabod

    Alright! That’s awesome. I mean your response, Ms Mudlark. I don’t think Mum saw it that way (or she might have?) and actually I didn’t either and what was really good in your response was the bit in bold:

    the basis of my criticism was, not that it was done, but that it was done rather clumsily in what was otherwise an anything…[Read more]
