Public: Terry Taylor - Orthodox?
Posted by: LanceMcLain on Wednesday, May 10, 2006 - 02:44 PM
OK, I'm the biggest Daniel Amos fan there is. I own at least one copy of practically everything penned from the hand of Terry Taylor (the lead singer), which is no small thing as he's been a prolific artist since the 70's. I believe there are around 1000 published, recorded songs to his name. He is really an obsessive pastime for me. I think the guy is one of the best modern poets in Christendom....

Public: Some Quotes from Henry David Thoreau
Posted by: LanceMcLain on Sunday, April 09, 2006 - 05:10 PM
Came across these quotes in my Thoreau readings that I had jotted down in notebooks or on the computer, so I wouldn't forget. Thought I'd share them with you. I'll try to add more to this page as I come across them. (some I have added to the random quote generator on the home page).

Public: Wish On A Star
Posted by: LanceMcLain on Sunday, April 02, 2006 - 01:50 PM
Dreamers live a tortured life. Like the only man in the world who can see in color while the rest of the world sees in black and white. No matter how much he tries to describe and convince everyone of the blue sky or green sea...of the true nature of the world, they still can only see shades of gray. Ever try to look at a black and white print of a Monet' and find its meaning? Imagine the frustration of the "color seeing artist" (dreamer) trying to paint to such a "black and white audience".

Public: Cinderella Platinum Edition DVD
Posted by: LanceMcLain on Wednesday, October 12, 2005 - 05:11 PM

We picked up the Cinderella Platinum Edition DVD this weekend, and watched it.

I love what they did with the colors. We had been only able to watch it on VHS and the difference is quite noticeable. Perhaps they even overdid it. The reds were really candy apple red and the colors were so much brighter. It is a nice change as I had grown accustom to the film being quite "bluish" in nature.

I still love the music in this one, perhaps as well as any other Disney film.

Public: Movies - Dogma
Posted by: LanceMcLain on Saturday, October 08, 2005 - 02:40 PM

Comedien Chris Rock played Rufus the 13th Apostle in the comedy movie _Dogma_, which was a spoof on western christianity. The movie really spoofed the legalism and scholasticism of western Christianity, in one way getting God trapped in his own legalisms. Some would consider the movie sacriligious, but I myself found it amusing pointing out the foiables of where western theology has brought us (to athiesm?).

Sadly the movie could point
to no alternative...because quite frankly to most in the west, there is no alternative. We certainly could use a good missionary.

regards,

Public: Movies - Apollo 13
Posted by: LanceMcLain on Saturday, October 08, 2005 - 02:37 PM
This is one of those films that you can watch over and over again. No matter how many times I've seen it, if it is on one of the movie channels when I'm channel surfing, it compels you to watch it. The HBO documentaries/ recreations hosted by Tom Hanks "From the Earth to the Moon" are also like that.

I guess it is just someting about "realistically" not "fantastically" being in space that compells you to watch it.

Public: The Fisher's Son (excerpts)
Posted by: LanceMcLain on Saturday, September 24, 2005 - 09:13 PM
(excerpt)

My years are like a stroll upon the beach,
As near the ocean's edge as I can go;
My tardy steps its waves do oft o'erreach;
Sometimes I stay to let them over flow.

Infinite work my hands find there to do,
Gathering the relics which the waves cast;
Each storm doth scour the deep for something new,
And every time the strangest is the last.

My sole employment 'tis and scrupulous care,
To place my gains beyond the reach of tides,
Each smoother pebble and each shell more rare,
Which ocean kindly to my hand confides.

I have no fellow laborer on the shore,
They scorn the strand who sail upon the sea,
Sometimes I think the ocean they've sailed o'er
Is deeper known upon the strand to me.

The middle sea can show no crimson dulse,
Its deeper waves cast up no pearles to view,
Along the shore my hand is on its pulse
Whose feeble beat is elsewhere felt by few.

My neighbors come sometimes with lumb'ring carts,
As it would seem, my pleasant toil to share,
But straightway take their loads to distant marts,
For only weeds and ballast are their care.

(excerpted from the Journal of Henry David Thoreau Jan 10th, 1840)

My favorite author Henry David Thoreau thought very highly of William Wordsworth and so I've been reading some of his poetry. Here are some lines I found especially moving:
