Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

The former version of Google Earth had a date and time stamp on the photo. I don't see one here. This shows the large quake, but it was more than an hour ago. Todays are in orange, the past week is yellow. The size of the dot indicates the size of the quake. Press on the dot and it should tell you its Richter scale.

Red dot means within last hour

Orange dot: past day 

Yello dot: past week

Grinning, my daughter has that book.  I'll look for it and read it!  Thanks. :)

How intriguing! Mary had twins, Jesus (Good) and Christ (Scoundrel).

I like the idea of re-telling myths. I wonder how long it will take for someone to tell the new myth and a group forms in support of that story line. Oh Jeez, then we'll have another one to refute. 

I wonder, Mother Mary was a prostitute and didn't know who the father was, and .... Oh! it's too late to imagine.

Joan, Viking Trance a.k.a Erik the Viking has become popular on A.N and I believe this is attributable to the uniqueness and intelligibility of the music. I am a video artist for Viking Trance and "Viking Trance - Transfuseit" is my best video to date. Other videos I have created for Viking Trance include Pathological States, Electric Cowboys, What Is, Coda, Work In Progress and Chillum Trance which can be found on the Smart Dog Videos London (UK) link.

bonne écoute !

While looking for something else, I found Ian Mason's comment a year ago recommending a few books.

I'll heartily second the one for Phillip Pullman's book "The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ". In this retelling, Mary has twins, Jesus, who teaches, comforts, and does good works, and Christ, who's more intent on starting a powerful institution than on recording the truth.

As Ian described it: "One of a series where established authors are commissioned to re-tell various myths. Pullman describes his book as being about 'how a story becomes a story', the distorting jump from a few simple events to a told account of them that spreads and spreads."

I'm in a very small city so the library here is rather limited. Now that I can use my library card to ''borrow'' & download books from the ''library without walls'', it's a very good choice. I only purchase books that I intend to keep, but seldom pay a regular price. 

Comment by booklover on March 28, 2014 at 9:13pm
She couldn't afford the $30 book, and wouldn't have paid that for it anyway. That's why she was so excited to see a great used copy for fifty cents! I agree with you Patricia! The library is really good here too, but I sometimes owe Agee dollars for turning books in late. Still beats buying retail, & helps support the library!

Napoleon, you have done it again. Just when you redeem yourself in my eyes, you invite me to look at those photos of two newborns and the video, "Viking Trance - Transfuseit" I could only tolerate if for about 10 seconds. I can't image watching for 7+ minutes.
