Listen Kaitlin, about a thousand of my relos and myself have never pondered these questions and we have got along quite all right.

This navel-gazing is for people who have nothing better to do and who have psych troubles.

The only questions I ponder over brekkie is how much of the SMH I can get through having to run and am I going to be full.

Happy is the keyword. We have no choice but to earn our living, unless we are going to be like those bludging priest parasites.

Many religions get 10% of their members' income for supposedly answering these navel-gazing questions.

Did Neitzche had anything to say about these questions?

Once you go down this track you end up in New Age or some exotic Asian religion/philosophy, and when you look at their track record of living standards no thank you.

I just remember a female french tutor working somewhere up in the alps and there was a killer going around chopping up bodies with sickles. I didn't see the end but it was shaping up like the sweet innocent tutor was actually the killer. Does this sound like the same one?

I remember there was a movie where a girl killed dozens with a sickle but don't think was the same one. She kept having memory flashes and she would run amok again. Could be Unknown Friend from Germany shown on Saturday 18th June.

No. This girl had flashbacks but it was to when she was a girl and the sickle killer killed her mother and father but she miraculously escaped. This is why I was thinking she was going to wind up as the killer.

Pretty sure it was around the 9th. Anyone else catch it?

The Life of Brian
- Australian Story (01/08/2005)

Tonight on Australian Story (ABC, 8pm, I think) they are featuring Brian and Bobbie Houston of Hillsong, Australia's largest church. Hillsong are AOG-affiliated and I work for the AOG national office in Melbourne. Might give a reasonable insight into contemporary churches in Australia with a bit of luck. Hopefully the presentation will be "balanced". I will be particularly interested in the dicussion around "political influence" as its an area of concern for me.

------ snippet from ABC website follows:

When Brian and Bobbie Houston established their own tiny house of worship 20 years ago, they didn’t dream they would end up at the helm of the biggest independent church in Australia.

While Hillsong revels in chart topping CDs and the beaming approval of some politicians, it does divide observers. Some admire Hillsong’s material and spiritual success; others suspect a political agenda and worry about the church’s financial arrangements.

Through it all, the Houstons have avoided personal media scrutiny, but - for the first time - they’ve allowed cameras into both their church and their private life.

This revealing episode includes interviews with Brian and Bobbie Houston, along with their three children Joel, Ben and Laura. Also interviewed are Hillsong’s internationally famous worship pastor, singer and composer Darlene Zschech, and the chief executive of Hillsong’s extensive community and aid programs, Leigh Coleman (formerly of Opportunity International).

Easily my favourite European film... such a cute story.

It is a great feel-good film but perhaps a bit too cutesy to be a personal favourite. I think Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources are great films in their own right. Perhaps not my absolute favourite but I prefer them to Amelie (which I still enjoyed immensely).

La Fille sur la Pont is another (more recent) film which I really enjoyed. Also the "three colours" trilogy of films were memorable.

Yuk - I watched the results of the Channel 2 movie poll. I thought the results sucked. So here are some of my favourites (not necessarily best just great to watch)

Westerns

- The Wild Bunch -director Sam Peckinpah -More action in the opening sequence than in the whole of many westerns.
Shane - still looks magic

Musicals
- An American in Paris - Gene Kelly.
Cabaret - Liza Minelli

Drama

- Fanny and Alexander - Ingmar Bergman - the long version -His last and best movie.
To Kill a mockingbird - Gregory Peck was magic

swashbuckler
Scaramouche - they don't make them like that any more.
Robin Hood - Errol Flynn at his best

silent movie
"The General" Buster Keating
"The Gold rush" Chaplin

Chick flicks
"Thelma and Louise"
"Little Women" take your pick as to which version.

Comedy
"Hulots holiday" Tati
"Mon Oncle" Tati
"The Seven year itch"
"The Lady Killers" The pom version. most of the other Ealing comedies get a guernsey

Blackploitation

"Superfly." Totally amoral
"Jackie Brown"
"Shaft"

Lad movies
The two Bazza Mackenzie movies

Rock and roll movies judged as movies

1) La Bamba
2) Almost famous - Kate Hudson was stunning
3) King Creole
4) The girl Can't Help it.
5) Help

Kungfu action
1) Seven Samurai
2) Chinese ghost Story II
3) Drunken Master

Action/thrillers excluding war movies

1) Breathless - Godard
2) Point Black - Lee Marvin is something else.


War movies

1) Paths of Glory - Kubrick
2) Cross of Iron - Peckinpah

Best title

1) I was a teenage werewolf.
2) Riot in a juvenile prison.

Winterschläfer

From the tv guide: A tale of suspense in a small Alpine village. Passion, emotions, love and death are set in motion by a car accident, in which the lives of four young people and a farming family become tragically intertwined.

Well worth a look. Directed by Tom Tykver (who went on to direct Run, Lola, Run).

Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to chaos, one that scientists are only now beginning to understand. Professor Jim Al-Khalili sets out to uncover one of the great mysteries of science: How does a universe that starts off as dust end up with intelligent life? How does order emerge from disorder?

The Story of Science
What is Out There? (Premiere) 8.30pm - 9.30pm
SBS ONE
12 April 2011

For thousands of years we have wrestled with the great questions of existence. The quest to answer these is the story of science. In this six-part series, journalist Michael Mosley traces the often unpredictable path we have taken. He begins with the story of one of the great upheavals in human history: how we came to understand that our planet was not at the centre of everything in the cosmos but just one of billions of bodies in a vast and expanding universe.

Hunting the Hidden Dimensions

"Conceived by mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot in the 1960s and 1970s, fractals have changed the way we see the world and opened up a vast new territory to scientific analysis and understanding. This program tells the story of a group of pioneering mathematicians who took Mandelbrot's invention from a mathematical curiosity, that few took seriously, to an approach that is touching nearly every branch of science and technology today, from mobile phones to cardiac medicine to the study of tropical forests."

Even if it's a silicon shocker, we can go back enjoy the original later :)

I've been watching Danger 5 late night on SBS. .. Dog it's an great mashup of deadpan aussie comedy and hollywood B grade splatterfest, martial arts, nazis and even sci-fi. Series one is quite all over the place, but series two has an amazing crazy storyboard.

The first series of The Good Place was quite entertaining and was the first TV series I've actually enjoyed watching since House MD.

Its a shame the second series is starting to place less emphasis on the moral responsibility of the participants to concentrate more on their personal relationships. That said, I'll still be tuning in to ABC Iview tonight to see the next installment.

Michael might be interested in Episode 5 of Season 3 of The Good Place, which explains several approaches to ethics - complete with practical examples:
... Chidi has a breakdown, buying $880 worth of candy and cooking it into a pot of chili during class; he describes philosophies embodied by the characters: virtue ethics, consequentialism, deontology, and nihilism. ... . (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Good_Place_(season_3)#Episodes)

It was originally shown on Monday, but will be on ABC iview for a while.

The drama starts in 2019 and plays out through to 2034. Interesting interview with shows creator Russell T. Davies: Interview-years-and-years (https://www.theverge.com/2019/7/2/20677776/russell-t-davies-interview-years-and-years-hbo-doctor-who-queer-as-folk-showrunner-future-brexit)


But I think we’re immensely clever, and once we reassess these issues, we might devote ourselves to finding our way out of it. There might be huge, vast changes. I think to write the drama that’s a hundred years in the future might be a huge act of the imagination, and maybe I’ll do that one day. But I think our lives will significantly change, what with the movement of populations and the weather. I think vast changes are coming.
