commented on Never Heard of 'Em: Dead Can Dance
You should definitely check out Aion. This album came after the Serpent's Egg and is the apotheosis of Dead Can Dance. It was all down hill after that.
Taking the fool's task of disagreeing with Fnarf I have to say - "apples and oranges sir." This may be an informal fallacy: We cannot compare these two groups in a quantitative way as they as similar of football and basketball players.
OK Fnarf, let me have it.
commented on Slog Bible Study: Revelation 9:7-10
Suddenly the Pale Horse doesn't seem so scary anymore.

commented on What You Should Know About Woody Allen's New Movie
I don't think the Streetcar Named Desire thing was sub-rosa in any way. I haven't read but two reviews but they both mentioned this fact - and it isn't exactly hard to put together.
Is this a strike against the film? Or merely a strike agains Allen who isn't known for referencing others material?

But what if the woman you're looking at and lusting after is your wife? Does that count?
The definition of adultery is being stretched pretty thin.
