  1. Ooh, I'll have to check it out. I love abandoned places, thanks.
  2. Science is based on observation and fact, not faith. It is flexible and it changes with what we know: religion does not. Science does not demand that people worship it. We don't pray to science, and we don't get mad at science when something goes wrong. Science is not a religion.
  3. You know, Steve, there isn't anything wrong with being a "librarian."
  4. I don't really have a problem with her, she's just not my style. That's why I'm surprised that I like that particular song so much, because I don't really care for her other stuff.
  5. Aren't you charming, Steve? You just ooze charisma and class.

    *shrug* He did fall out of a palm tree. I know you love him, but he's by far one of the most drugged up Rock and Rollers. The point is that as far as crazy rock star antics, Amy Winehouse isn't anything new.
  7. what is this, facebook?

    Felling paranoid, Joel? Makes it harder for you to stalk, doesn't it? It also makes it harder to tell if we're watching you. Must be terrifying.

    Amy Winehouse

    Haha, my dad once called her "Winey Aimhouse," it made me laugh a lot harder than it probably should have. I am easily amused. Ooh, I forgot about Keith when I was talking about the hypocritical response to her. He snorted his own Dad's ashes, for God's sake!

    When you live in a black and white world, you miss the bigger picture, because you're too focused on the details. I wasn't pulling any tricks. You said people with mental illnesses, not just substance problems. Don't even try to back track on your words, buddy, they're right there. Yes, people with substance problems need help. Unfortunately, they are the only ones who can make the call if they actually want help or not. If they don't want it, they're going to just fall back into their old patterns again, no matter how many times they go to rehab. Vilifying and condemning these people

    ...excuse me? If you've ever had to deal with mental illness - if it was yourself or someone you know - you wouldn't say that. It isn't as simple as telling someone to go to rehab or see a psychiatrist. You can tell them to do that, but they have to do it on their own. You can't force them to do it. Frankly, I think your posts are becoming increasingly insulting. Never mind your hypocrisy, let's talk about your complete and utter ignorance about substance abuse and mental illnesses in general. You shouldn't hate the person who abuses substances. Just because they do that, it doesn't m

    Also, I fail to see how not liking her music doesn't make you a hypocrite. Please explain it to me. For the first time, I completely agree with you. I never thought I'd say this, but well said, Type O.

    That's a matter of opinion.

    I'm pretty sure you know what I think.
  15. No problem. I wasn't posting directly to you, though your post did inspire mine. It was more of a general question and observation, though. Anyway, I don't think there's that big of a difference between Winehouse interrupting Robert and Keith Moon destroying a hotel. (yes, that's right...destroying a hotel, not just a room. Look up the story of the Who staying at the Holiday Inn, and you'll see what I mean.) What she did might have been very rude, but what they did caused a lot of physical damage and no doubt needed a ton of money to be fixed. Face it: the behavior isn't anything new. Rock
  16. Of course I'm for real. I never said that I think it's OK for her to be an alchoholic or a druggie. I've just noticed that a lot of people seem to hate her for it, but don't apply the same attitude towards other people who have those problems. It's alright you don't like her voice. I can see how it would get on some people's nerves. That's fine. What I don't get it why some people seem to think that because she's a drug addict, she doesn't have any talent. I think it's important to seperate an artist's personal life from their work. That's the point I was trying to make in my post, and y
  17. On the subject of Amy Winehouse, I just have to ask why you people think it's so terrible that she's an "Alcoholic druggie," but that same thing is perfectly fine for other musicians. You do realize that most musicians - including our own dear Zeppelin - are or were alcoholics and drug addicts, don't you? I like Amy Winehouse. I think she has good songs and a unique voice. Her personal problems shouldn't have an effect on how you view her music. If you don't like it, you don't like it. But don't write her off as "talentless" because she has issues. You don't say the Beatles sucked because
  18. I'm not my best right now, actually. I've got really, really bad hay fever. If you gave me a good enough reason, I might, haha. I like to help people when they need it.
  19. I'd donate some of it to charity, and use some of it to buy my parents a new house. I'd put most of it in savings (for the interest, you know) and use some of it to pay for my college education, and then some of it to go traveling. After that, I don't know.
  20. Denver all the way, man. As for College games, CU Buffs, because I'm biased.
  21. Relax, it's a joke thread. Everyone is willing to jump on Obama and blame him for everything, this thread is about how stupid that is.
