One of my favorite bands is The Incredible String Band - I've loved them for years. Most music books give the highest rating to the recording called "The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter", but my favorites are "5,000 Spirits or Layers Of The Onion", "Wee Tam/Big Huge", and "Liquid Acrobat As Regards The Sky".
One of their lyrics that has stayed with me since...

Dream Theory (1)
I'm standing on the edge of a chasm. It's slippery. I can hear the roar of water below me, as if there's a great cataract nearby - like Niagara or Victoria Falls. But it isn't either of those.
Mist rises from the chasm below - so deep I can't see anything but those clouds of mist. Sheer cliffs. In...

I couldn't stop staring into your eyes.
Intensely blue, beautiful,
windows into an infinitely inspiring soul.

Now your gaze will be with me
On whatever I see.

Snowflakes falling
Softly so small
They float all around us without a sound
See them shifting
Lazily sifting
Quietly drifting down to the ground
Just a gust of wind will blow
Round and round and round they go...
See them swirling
Tumbling, twirliing
Silently whirling down to the ground.

Perfect for today.

I love the snow. I wish it was snowing now, instead of being all melty.

Thinking about the importance of music in my life, and the discs that ALWAYS move/inspire/rock/soothe me... You know, the all-timers, the ones you always enjoy. Let's see...
Almost all 60's Dylan, except Self Portrait and New Morning, all British Beatles releases, 1st Stones, then the four that began with Beggars Banquet and ended with Exile On Main Street, Some Girls...

Man, is TV ever boring. It's just the same shows, over and over again - sometimes with different names, to be sure, but the same show nevertheless. It's so bad they've stopped even changing the names - how many CSI's can a person watch? Thank God for Deadwood.

"At this point, if we assume consensuality, I can't see why anyone gets pregnant who doesn't want to. Just seems totally irresponsible to me"

I don't get it. Birth control fails. So one could be having perfectly responsibile (i.e. protected) sex and still get pregnant.
morgan:
"Birth control doesn't fail very often, really... If you statted the number of times used/number of misfires"

This is true. However, different forms of birth control fail enough to cause a lot of unplanned, accidental pregnancies.

Here are some stats,

"in most cases, "surprise" pregnancies are not about malfunctions. In fact, quite the opposite - things are functioning perfectly."

Okay, probably true, but I still don't get what you mean. Yes, sex can cause pregnancy, and people take precaustions to avoid that. Sometimes those precautions fail. What does that have to do with the responsibility of the people involved?

So, I was making a trip home. The road was clear, but the sky was gray. At the border, I was pulled over, but it was so cold the guards let me go without searching for anything. In a new country, the road was still clear, but the sky had come down to the ground. Ahead of me, I couldn't see anything but gray...

We've just had an election in my country. What a scandalous mess! The vote was rigged by the governing party. The newspapers and TV just spread government propaganda, instead of real news and opinion. Our president, supported by the military and "Old School" cold warriors - who enrich themselves at our expense - made sure he won, even though we voted against him. It's too...
