Drug Legalization posted 09 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionDrug Legalization by Loof, Peralogue

I agree totaly with totaly with you Larry on the problem beinga social one and also that it shoudl be treated with rehab and not prison. Although I think one of the reasons prison is the reality is again the cost issue, rehab probably costs alot more.
I don't realy have any experience with heavy drugs, so there I cant add much. But even weaker drugs have aperant long term effects, especialy on peoples personalitys (as does alcohol or any drug). My general stance on "light" drugs is that a little doesn't hurt as long as it doesnt become a habit, this goes for legal as well as illegal ones.
But if legalisation is the answer I simply don't have enought information to say what i think one way or the other. view post


Now listening to... posted 10 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow listening to... by Loof, Peralogue

Because I don't classify Dylan as being strictly any genre?

I will admit he has made some great songs that are of the Country persuasion (Lay Lady Lay being just one example, all of Nashville Skyline being another, not to mention parts of John Wesley Harding and Time Out of Mind), but he deserves his own genre, yes?

That being said, I have a nice 2002 bootleg of Dylan playing Brown Sugar. Weird, yet good.


Ok I admit Dylan isn't strictly country. Although im not sure he has a own genre. I would probably say he has his roots in country but has experimented with many different genres... but maybe thats the same thing now that I typed it out <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->

EDIT: Oh and the brown sugar cover sounds interesting (although it doesnt suprise me ha has done one). Whats the bootleg called, and is the sound any good? Normaly I'm not that interested in bootlegs due to the crapy quality of the recordings. view post


A Game of Thrones posted 10 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionA Game of Thrones by Loof, Peralogue

I actualy have managed to reread ASOIAF, although it took two tries (first time I got sidetracked before finishing GOT). So yeah they aren't the most reread friendly books out there.
But I definetly think they have some things that can be picked up on a reread that you miss the first time through. Take for instance the ever popular theory about Jon's parents, me and a friend figured that one out discussing the books while I was doing my reread before I found it on the net. view post


Now Reading... posted 10 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow Reading... by Loof, Peralogue

Just started Glen Cooks "Bleak Seasons" the first part of his glittering stone series. Haven't gotten very far and its going a little slow since this book mostly retells "Dreams of Steal" from another viewpoint.
But all in all I enjoy Cooks Black company books, although thats partly because its fun to see where Erikson got some of his inspiration. But I also like how he uses diferent prose for diferent narators, but still keeps it plain and to the point which fits the mercenarys that are suposed to be writeing the story. view post

Free Will posted 10 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionFree Will by Loof, Peralogue

I beleve that everything has it's roots in what has happened before. So the situations and choices we are offered are dependant on earlyer occurances, but in every situation we still have a choise about how we act/react.
So I beleve in free will and a deterministic world (as opposed to a fatalistic world). view post


Drug Legalization posted 10 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionDrug Legalization by Loof, Peralogue

@Loof&gt; I dont think rehab would be more costly than prison - if it works. It's a matter of fixing the problem, vs putting the problem on hold and having to deal with it again as soon as the person is released from jail.


You missunderstoot me a bit i think. I wasn't saying rehab was a impractical idea because it would cost to much. I actualy think it's the only good solution. And you might be correct that in the long run it would save money. What I was saying was that one of the reasons I think its not used more is that initialy it costs more then simply locking people up. So those who are making the dissisions don't think it can be afforded. view post


On the subject of Chorae posted 11 July 2004 in Author Q &amp; AOn the subject of Chorae by Loof, Peralogue

Thats what i think too. If the Chorae's power could be transmited by another physical object any sorcerer that shook hands with someone that was wearing one wold kick the bucket. I think that would make peace negotiations a bit rough don't you <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post


A Game of Thrones posted 11 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionA Game of Thrones by Loof, Peralogue

Theory is that Lyanna Stark ran away willingly with Rhaegar and that she died giving birth to Jon. And what she asked Ned to promise her was to keep Jon safe or something like that. There are alot of small hints that indicate this theory, but who knows it might be just one more of them whacky theories obsessed readers think up <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post

Cool I will have to check out Hide, never heard of them before. But if they are an industrial band its pretty likely that Ministry is a big influance. view post

Hehe thanks for the info, wasnt planning on going out and buying it without listening to it first. If i do find it i will tell you what I think.

And just to stay on topic right now I'm listening to Guns n' Roses Apetite for Destruction, in my opinion probably one of the best rock albums ever made. <!-- s8) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8) --> view post

Anyone read American Gods, by Neil Gaiman? posted 17 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionAnyone read American Gods, by Neil Gaiman? by Loof, Peralogue

Yeah I have read it. Thought it was good but not super good. One of the things that I found a bit "wrong" was that I felt the gods personalitys didn't fit that well with what they where acording to legend. But mostly I think it was because it gave me a bit of a been there seen that feeling as the way it was written was similar to sandman, not suprising but for some reason it anoyed me (probably because i had to high expectations).

But all in all a good book. view post


Is the idea of a &quot;god&quot; inherent in our minds? posted 17 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionIs the idea of a &quot;god&quot; inherent in our minds? by Loof, Peralogue

I think we have a inate need to explain our world, so I think the concept of god comes very easily to us. But that if someone was intentionaly raised so that every existential question he asked was answerd with another explanation then god It might be posible that he/she would never form the concept. view post


The value of a life posted 20 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionThe value of a life by Loof, Peralogue

But wouldn't a more "humane" solution to the mentaly unstable people be therapy rather then a death sentance?
In my eyes a deathsentance can never be the "correct" solution only the easy one.

Do all you that are in favor of the death penalty disagree with this? And if so why? view post


What is/was/will be your college major? posted 21 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Loof, Peralogue

Hehe nice subject derailing there <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Well due to being a professional slacker I still haven't gotten a degree. And since our school/university system is a bit different then the american I don't know exactly what to call everything. But Im starting a university program in Computer science this fall, I think it gives a masters in computer science and a batchelors in maths but im not sure.
One big advantage with the subjects is I probably wont need 10 bookshelves to keep my studybooks <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post


The problem of evil posted 21 July 2004 in Philosophy DiscussionThe problem of evil by Loof, Peralogue

I suppose the concept of perfection is something that I need to think about more. Saintjon, couldn't perfection change dependent on circumstances? Circumstances dictate the ideal.


Just to add my two &lt;currency of choice&gt;. I would say that not only does perfection differ dependant on circumstances it also differs with viewpoint, making it a verry subjective concept.

On the subject of Good and Evil I am of the opinion that they don't exist as definite things, at least for humans. By that I mean that I don't think any human action can be purely good or bad since what is good and bad is a function of viewpoint but it is also like wil pointed out relative to other actions.

Hmm now that I'm writing this out... maybe what I'm saying is that the whole subject is pointless because the object of the discussion is to subjective. <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->

Note: And as always everything I state as fact is actualy just my opinion. It's not that I'm not aware of doing this it's just that I'm so bad at letting that shine through in the actual text <!-- s:( --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" title="Sad" /><!-- s:( --> view post

Oh drat now you think I have some aversion to all philosophy, which i don't. I'm just a bit picky when it comes to which ones I find concrete enough that they are worth disgusing <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post

Quote: &quot;Alric&quot;:32rp0czp
Right now, I've been listening to a lot of Jethro Tull / Ian Anderson. It's a phase I go through once every year. A current favorite of mine is Ian's recently released solo album - Rupi's Dance. It's a nice blend of sound and lyrical fusion.[/quote:32rp0czp]

Interesting, I used to be a big tull fan. Although nowdays it mostly comes in smaller waves sort of like you describe. When was this solo album released? Don't think i have seen it, is it worth looking for?

And to keep on topic:
Right now I'm listening to Nick Cave - The boatman's call view post

Congratulations! posted 30 March 2005 in Author Q &amp; ACongratulations! by Loof, Peralogue

I beleve what aldarion is refering to is something along the lines of an atitude that says "I'm gods gift to man in the form of an author and I can do no wrong" or something like that.... view post
