I have never seen a single "carry on" film. What are those about?

How do you summarise twenty years of film history?

Probably best to think British saucy postcard on the silver screen, but that may not be much help. I'm not in a fit state to look at the moment, thanks to our Russian friends, but I'm sure YouTube has the answers you seek. Then there's this resource: http://www.carryonline.com/ which might be helpful.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to fall over.

Thank you, I will certainly look into it.

RE: What's everyone up to right now?



Drinking sounds like a good idea. I have a half bottle of lychee flavored sake that I didn't finish the other night. Though I'm in more of a tequila mood. I'll probably just return to bed and pull the covers up over me. Maybe I'll bring the tequila with me. Thinking a lot about throwing myself under a bus these days, which is kind of stupid, as I'm sure that's gotta hurt, and it doesn't strike me as a high percentage method.

My new speakers arrived on Monday, but I've been too depressed and unmotivated to set them up. My life these days is like an avalanch in slow motion, and all I can do is stand transfixed by the carnage, unable to move.

I haven't gone to more than a couple book clubs or discussion groups all year. That was the backbone of my life last year. My new therapist and I, setting "goals" for my therapy Wednesday, penciled in that I should try to go to two events per month and build from there. So this afternoon I signed up for some. Tomorrow it's the start of a year long series exploring personal values, hosted by the local humanists and organized by a very nice humanist friend/acquaintance of mine. Tomorrow we'll be discussing people's individual takes on life's big questions about meaning and morality. Over 50 people have signed up, so it sounds anything but intimate. And the signup page displays your intro tagline alongside your picture on the event page, and my intro openly acknowledges that I'm a Taoist and a Hindu, so I'm feeling a little exposed. I could edit that out, but I'm in one of my self-destructive moods, so I left it as is. The people attending will be primarily atheists and humanists, so I may end up being the only openly religious person there. I haven't decided how to approach this. Maybe it'll come to me after I've had something to drink.

And now, the bottle of sake is calling me....

In the process of making a new eyepatch. I've got hold of some Aussie bull oak, so I thought I'd try an inlay of the wood affixed to a leather base.

Still mulling over the design.

Web-browsing, relaxing. Gonna meet with a friend to discuss a move to another state (probably next year). Kind of excited about that, I've pretty much had my fill of NYC. Nice place to visit, but 45 years is a long visit.
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."
