So the tax refund will pay for my tuition this summer!!! :) Gonna take two courses: 1. Epistemology, 2. The Philosophy of Human Nature.

Also, this Fall I will begin my Latin courses. :)
Out of curiosity, what type of course on epistemology? I mean, are you going to have an overview type thing, or more like exploring one particular view in depth?
The first half of the course will be an overview of different thinkers and topics in epistemology. The second half will focus on Thomistic realism and Thomistic responses to non-realisits.
Hmm, well, enjoy, I suppose :)

Will you be looking at this for epistemology? http://philosophyfaculty.ucsd.edu/faculty/rarneson/courses/gettierphilreading.pdf

Dylan? Hendrix? The Beatles?
Dylan and The Beatles didn't paly blues jams (and Dylan certainly wasn't a good harmonica player). Hendrix did play blues, but in spite of his talent, I would never describe his playing as "tight." He was all over the place, and he sounded like he was playing on acid. Great guitarist, but I never really liked his music. But that's just my two cents.

Americans certainly do have a fascination with eastern Europe...

Ever get carded twice by different people in the same beer line?

Dylan was a singer-songwriter.  As a songwriter he was great.  As a singer...not so much.

I'm not all that sold on the beetles.  They had a few good songs.  None were exceptionally great, IMHO.

Hendrix.  I really like some of his stuff.

Of all the old music, David Bowie will always be my hero.

Yeah, I like David Bowie a lot. I think David Byrne of Talking Heads was heavily influenced by Bowie.

Charlie Rose is currently interviewing an art scholar who believes the Shroud of Tourin is authentic. On PBS right now. Interesting!

I saw something like this on the Aliens and Nazis (History) Channel back on the Eve of the Annunciation (Catholic Good Friday).  Very interesting!  They did a reconstruction of what the face imprinted on the shroud would have looked like.  Very similar to how the Icons show our Lord.  True science and true religion usually agree!

I was going to make a new thread of this but then I realized that probably none was interested in this. :D So I just leave it here instead.

The National Library of Finland has digitalized all of it's copies of the first book ever printed for Finland. It's a Dominican missale from 15th century. The Dominican tradition had been adopted as official liturgical tradition for diocese of Turku i.e. Finnish RCs in the 14th century.

The Missale can be seen here. Click "Avaa tiedosto" in order to see different copies of it.

Fair enough. I'm not especially familiar with blues music or terminology. I've found myself listening to a lot of Springsteen and Aerosmith lately, so I might make the transition from blues-rock to blues eventually. I'll let you know what I think about LSD then.

The best anti-LSD speech I ever got was from a guy I worked with at Pizza Hut who liked his weed and drank A LOT.  He said that he would never do LSD again after he took a couple tabs, blew his entire paycheck on snacks, and laughed at a wall for 12 hours straight that he thought was pulsating and purple, and then slept for the next 36 hours.

Never gotten a speech against it per se, but I did have a friend whose dealer gave him acid-laced weed by accident. Hanging out with him kind of sucked for a little while until he figured out how to manage flashbacks.

Is marijuana popular in many native Orthodox lands? Unfortunately, I know that alcoholism is but how about marijuana?

I can't give you an answer for that, but I myself wouldn't be messing with the stuff either way, heh.

I'll also tell you that LSD and Blues go together about as well as flutes and blues. And now, come to think of it, I can surmise how the misguided idea for "Blues flute" came about.  ;)

It's going to be cool next week for those of us in my part of GA. High is supposed to be around 50-something the entire week.

Or, as Lady Whiteadder of the second Blackadder series might say: "Cold is God's way of telling us to burn more Catholics!" :p

Banal... what is your chosen pronunciation of it? Bah-nall or Bay-nul?

That's how I always heard it as well, until a few years ago when I was watching youtube vids.
