Hey Slacker,

What do you use to practice painting on? I've been bitten by the bug again but canvases are so expensive (even if I stretch my own). Do you use any alternatives just to practice with?

Cheers

Your paintings are incredible. I do hope you're making money off those, my friend. Cheers.


Cheers bud.
I actualy do make a little bit of money occasionaly. I'm still going through the process of turning my art into a business, but I seem to get more and more commissions each year since I started promoting myself couple of years ago

I've PM'd you because I don't want the other band to get any ideas. :cheers:

This pertains to my particular interests. I may have some good free advise for you. Two important questions.

1) When were you formed and how long before the other band were you formed?

2) Why do you say you have a national reputation as opposed to a local one?

Actually, this was what I was referring to with the polystyrene slab thing:

Awesome paintings!

:haha:

Sadly, they've already done the The Librarian. Badly.

Explain to me what this "Full English" business is at that nice looking pub you posted earlier. Does it include Chicken Tikka? *shudder*

Also, you should pick up some Baudrillard. If you already haven't, you'd appreciate him, I'm sure.

Agreed.

But, not losing sight of the context....

Well, Jung's book has been described as 'addressing the moral, mythological and psychological implications of the Book of Job'. The way I see it, Jung got one... possibly two... out of three on that score. He nailed the psychological implications, did a pretty good job on the moral implications, but was way off on the mythological implications.

Exactly what I was looking for. :cheers:

Just call me.......(dramatic note)... 'The Librarian'..
...lost as a child, raised by a secret sect of bookworm monks, Slacker became 'The Librarian' in an effort to fight the evil of ignorance in an insane world gone to Hell in a handbasket.

BTW, if you're interested in ancient Mesopotamian religion and the Book of Job, you might want to look up a text known as 'Ludlul bel nemeqi'. (I Will Praise the Lord of Wisdom) It's a Mesopotamian poem thought to have been written during the reign of the Babylonian king 'Nazi-Maruttaš' (1307–1282 BC) and many scholars consider the Book of Job to have possibly been based upon it.


Exactly what I was looking for. :cheers:

Agreed.

But, not losing sight of the context, I was thoroughly fascinated by Jung's ability to place himself in that perfect analytical position.. I felt that the point of the book was to not come to a theological, or for that matter, even a logical conclusion as to the nature of God. Jung was aiming at the man experiencing "God". Becoming Job himself, riding the waves of reactionary outrage, despair and finally that cosmic calm, so to speak, was quite the brilliant role-play, and self study. In fact, he proclaims his intention of using the "God", the divine experience as a mirror into the human psyche at the very beginning of the book.

In that context, the story felt like a study into the smooth resolution of cognitive dissonance.

Ordered both books. Thanks, Babby.

Here's a thoughtful, if I do say so myself, recommendation for your reading pleasure:

C.G Jung- Answer to Job.

Quite genius.

Hey brother, would you do me a favor and tell me the name of the musician you posted as an example of not needing expensive gear to make good music? I wanna get a piece of this.

Certainly, he's called 'Seasick Steve' and you can find out all about him here: http://www.seasicksteve.com/

Computer died last Friday, while I was actualy writing a repy to your post in the R&P thread. (so really, it's all your fault, lol)
Had to wait for it to be fixed, turned out it needed a new PSU.


Understood, put it on my tab...

I was concerned because you hadn't indicated an extended absence and while I often disagree with your literary methods and conclusions, I enjoy your intellect and wit.

Glad you're back.

Mr. Babby!

Could you suggest me some books on ancient religious history that I should blow a modest pay check on?

How ancient? Not before El and not after Allah.

If you could recommend some books on Sumerian culture, that would be sexy.

Thanks,
Shat.


"The Sumerians: Their History, Culture and Character " by Samuel Noah Kramer.
And although it's not strictly just about the Sumerians, I'd thoroughly recommend "The Anvil of Civilization" by Leonard Cottrell, just because it gives a good all round view of the ancient Middle East and Mediterranean.
