• Is Moby Dick overrated?

    I recently read Moby Dick and I was bored to tears. I read War and Peace and loved it. But Moby Dick has a narrator who disappears afters about 100 pages. Is this supposed to be good writing? Any answers will be appreciated.

  • Why don't I kill myself?

    I am on Effexor and Depacote and Xanax and I see a therapist and still I feel depressed, panicky, anxiety-ridden, angry almost all the time. I'm pretty sure that I'm bi-polar. And I'm pretty sure there is no hell after death because I'm in it right now. And while it's been pretty well drummed into my head that one simply marches... show more
    I am on Effexor and Depacote and Xanax and I see a therapist and still I feel depressed, panicky, anxiety-ridden, angry almost all the time. I'm pretty sure that I'm bi-polar. And I'm pretty sure there is no hell after death because I'm in it right now. And while it's been pretty well drummed into my head that one simply marches on-one doesn't kill him or herself; I can safely say that 99% of the time I am convinced that my family and I would be better off if I was dead. I offer nothing to my community. I don't believe that my family loves me; I feel they tolerate me because I am their son and sibling and uncle. Please somebody out there tell me what to do.

  • Who loves Nirvana's song Scentless Apprentice?

    Does anybody else think that Scentless Apprentice is the most underrated song by Nirvana? I mean that loud anarchic screeching. I can't listen to it unless the volume is like up to 10. And how about Very Ape, that driving bass, the moment that Chris Novoselec really gets to shine? But I love Kurt on every song but without Grolh's drums, I... show more

  • Did anyone see Sunday night's episode of Breaking Bad. Walt is a BAD ***!?

    How in the world are they going to top that in the finale? For the first time this season, Jesse looks like a human again. God I love that show.

  • I answered a question about the Nobel Peace Prize, but this is a question that must be asked?

    How does someone who has done apparently nothing win the prize? I applaud Pres Obama for having a seemingly sincere desire to bring peace between the Israelis and the Muslims, better relations with the Russians even work with the Chinese (though at the expense of the Dalai Lama and Tibet!); but the peace prize, I believe, is about accomplishing... show more
    How does someone who has done apparently nothing win the prize? I applaud Pres Obama for having a seemingly sincere desire to bring peace between the Israelis and the Muslims, better relations with the Russians even work with the Chinese (though at the expense of the Dalai Lama and Tibet!); but the peace prize, I believe, is about accomplishing peace initiatives throughout the world, not your good intentions to do so. Obama has not been in office long enough to bring about any real change. More and more I see the bias toward liberals that the conservatives keep squawking about. Maybe they have a point in there somewhere....I welcome any pro or con responses to my opinion.

  • Who would win this movie fight?

    OK. Jason and Michael Myers have decided to join forces in order to rule the world. The only one who can stop them is Freddy Krueger; but he has a little help on his side: Dirty Harry. This has been gnawing at me for years. Which tag team would be the *** kickers?

    I just thought of a word that comes to mind when I hear Black Dog, Rock and Roll, and When the Levee Breaks especially: ORGIASTIC. It makes me want to roll around on the floor! It sounds like what rock and roll was meant to be. What do you think?

  • What is the meaning of Hitler getting shot in the movie Inglourious Basterds?

    I had an original thought about this, and I have very few of those. Let's say that throwing out the theory of an alternate universe what could Tarantino have been trying to say by having the Basterds kill him when we know that Hitler committed suicide in 1945? I would really like to hear some good thoughts on this subject.

    I have to admit that it is my least favorite Tarantino film. But it still had some extremely tense scenes like the opener and the scene in the basement with Helen Kruger and Wilhelm the German soldier who has just had a baby. That scene was Tarantino at his best. Please give me your opinions.
