  1. Thanks! I know it was pretty vague. I don't know how to narrow it down though, because I'd like to learn everything. Haha.
  2. Can somebody please recommend good sources (preferably internet sources) of information on Maoist China, Soviet Russia, and Nazi Germany?
  3. Or maybe you are riding the bus and it gets to bouncing up and down just right... :shifty:
  4. I love it! I'm actually going to watch the season premiere in about an hour. Can't wait! Blackhorse, did you mean Family Guy is one of your favorites? Something I keep laughing about this week is a scene from last Sunday's Family Guy. Somebody mentions Charlotte from Charlotte's Web getting over her tourettes and then they show a girl walking past Charlotte's web and it says "WHORE" on it. ROFLcopter!
  5. Two movies I saw recently are Conrack and The Descent. The Descent, although still a corny horror movie, was the most disturbing and horrifying movie I have ever seen. I actually shrieked in the theater and spilled my popcorn. Also, Conrack I saw in my english class. That was a really touching movie.
  6. Anyone here into the Showtime show Dead Like Me? I just got into and it is one of the few really original and unique shows. So, of course it got cancelled after the second season. Now they air the repeats on the Sci-Fi channel, if anyone wants to check it out. You really should.

    Robert, That's very cool of you and your wife to sit down with your daughter and listen with her. My parents were never like that. When I was 11, they would have said "no way!" Now I can buy whatever I want, but when I buy a rap CD I get weird looks from them. I definitely agree that he is a brilliant wordsmith. I can also understand your disdain for his attitude. I used to have a similar mindset (fuck the world!), but I fortunately grew out of it. To me he is just a big joke. His songs are funny to me; however, to some people all of the crap he says is real and they are influenced by it. I think if more kids had parents like you and your wife, there would be less bleach blonde white boys in schools around the country. ;)

    Eminem

    Yeah, unfortunately. We need more rapping midgets.
  9. Where did you find it on DVD?! I still have my copy from the library (I owe at least $5 on it), but I don't want to drive downtown. Overall, the film wasn't very good, but was worth a watch in my opinion. It's something I would sit down and watch if I were bored. Patricia Neal had some really great moments (none that I can recall at the moment), but her staring off into nothingness really got on my nerves. And I agree, Cooper was good as Roark, but too old. Alsoooo, I didn't think the man who played Henry Cameron was very good.

    Eminem

    Thank you, Michael. Rich, I feel your pain. Even though I love Eminem, I fortunately do not have his pictures plastered all over my walls. What a drag that would be! "Ehhhh..." is really the only way I can describe my feelings for Kid Rock, though I must admit, I do like his Devil Without a Cause album (and the rapping midget, Joe C!).

    Michael, Sorry about the Av. I didn't really think about the attacks from the "orthodoxy" (even though I see them everywhere!). Of course, as you assumed, it is a childish joke (and it's Skeletor, by the way). You can just leave it off and keep my Av space blank. I'd prefer not to put a picture up. You can call me Kori from now on. Is a name change possible? Again, sorry 'bout the Av! P.S. "<3" is just a sideways heart

    Michael, Thank you for the link! That was a great article. I liked that Sciabarra included quotes from kids. It seems that oftentimes adults rush to protest before they even ask us kids our opinion on whatever the issue is. We are not always as stupid and weak-minded as they think. Actually, I don't have a picture. I <3 my avatar, but I didn't read the rules. Is it allowed?

    Eminem

    ^ROFLcopter! Just for shits and giggles I like to hear different people's opinions on him. It's odd to encounter someone who doesn't really give a shit. Thumbs up for not thinking he's teh sAtAn.

    Eminem

    This is kind of out of the blue, but I was just thinking that I've never heard an opinion on Eminem from an Objectivist. What do you all think of him? Demon or not?

    Rush - Working Man

    *boasts* I can play Freewill on bass. My favorites are Anthem, Temples of Syrinx, La Villa Strangiato, and The Trees. What are all of yours'?

    Rush - Working Man

    What, no other Rush fans? Great song!
  17. Thanks again, Michael. And thanks to you as well, Reidy. I didn't know that it was their job...I guess I just thought they put books on shelves. *blush*
  18. That is actually one of the only 3 studies I could find. I have tried Google, but maybe if I keep digging I can find something else. It's just very tedious...I think I've found something and then I look deeper and it's no good. Maybe something will turn up with another search engine. Thanks!
  19. Very cool that you got to see those. A couple of years ago, there was a huge tornado in the KC area right in my neighborhood. Me and my dad were standing in the doorway looking at it about a block away. It's amazing. It's odd, I used to be so scared of tornados...like they would come out of the blue and kill everyone. Haha.
  20. Thanks so much! I will definitely check it out.
  21. Wow! Those are some photos! Do you live somewhere near KC, Missouri? We just had a tornado a few days ago...
  22. Hello! I am currently attempting to complete a year-long class, at the end of which I have to give a 30 min. presentation. The topic of my presentation is going to be the impact of violent music on adolescents (psychologically, biologically, etc). For some reason, I can't seem to find many primary sources (scholarly journals, studies, etc.) on this topic. I have searched my school's databases (Ebsco, Proquest), but only found 3 good sources. Just wondering if any of you have any ideas as to where I should look for primary sources (even secondary would be nice). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  23. I have a few audio files: Interview w/ Rand (I think a radio interview) Speech on Big Business What is Capitalism? speech Philosophy: Who Needs It? at Ford Hall Forum ...I think there are some other ones. I will upload them if it's okay.
