  2. That sounds very interesting. By the way...since this is your site, I think you should add a resources site so you can feature your work and articles for download.

    @Gord Barentsen I guess you've been updating the site or something, because all of a sudden when I click the emoticon button i see all these random emojis...? I will go on the record as saying I hate emojis...I find them immature and unbefitting for serious intellectual conversaion (even though I used the emoji version of a rubbershark for the Jaws conversation, but Jaws is anything but intellectual). I see the normal emoticons (which are much more professional) but they are pushed to the bottom of the list. So my suggestion is: please get rid of the emojis...I find them childish. Just my two cents
  4. So (don't ask) I find myself watching Jaws as we speak. I think I saw oart of it a long, long time ago but it's essentially like a new movie for me. Now everyone calls this movie a classic...but am I the only one who sees this film as proof that a movie can absolutely suck and still be considered a "classic"?? Terrible acting, terrible editing, terrible plot...don't get me started. And yeah i know it was made in 1975, but it this really something we want to be considered one of the best theatrical productions of our species? not to mention that mechanical shark...with the rubber teeth! 🦈
  5. Good to see that someone's getting behind local bookstores in the age of Amazon. Toronto hasn't been the same since the WBB shut down. ☹️ If I can find any where I am I'll be sure to post them.
  6. is it just me or is Jaws a truly terrible movie? 😖

  9. HI all, Thought I'd post information on a couple more bookstores I've found in Melbourne. This might be old news for those of you who live there, but maybe not. Both of these bookstores are very close to each other on Bourke St., which makes for a pleasant book browsing experience. While not quite as stocked as the Readings around UniMelb, they have a good classics and literature section and are definitely worth checking out.

  11. Many Windows 10 users have reported that the Safely Remove Media icon (the white USB icon with the checkmark) disappears from the taskbar, or only shows intermittently. This leaves some in a predicament where they cannot safely stop and remove USB hard drives. If this happens to you, try the following: Press and hold the Windows key and press R to bring up the Run dialog window. Type the following into the text field: RunDll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll Click OK or press ENTER. The Safely Remove Hardware window will appear, and you can select which hard drives to stop and remove. If you have real problems getting this icon to appear, you can create a desktop shortcut which will get you to the Safely Remove Hardware window: Right-click anywhere on the desktop and select New > Shortcut. In the Type the location for the item text field, enter the RunDll32.exe... line in step 2, above. Click NEXT. Title the shortcut as necessary (e.g., "Safely Remove Hardware"). Click OK or press ENTER.
  12. Hello all, I've been invited to give a one-hour talk at the Complex Processes Research Group (CPRG) at Swinburne University in Melbourne. The present theme for talks is, broadly speaking, "neoliberalism and the environment." I've included the abstract from Dr. Arran Gare's inaugural talk to give a sense of what issues are being discussed. My talk, which will involve Schelling's Naturphilosophie and its possible relations to a critique of neoliberalism, is slated for 2 May. I'll post more here when I have more information.
  13. so how did that course go? sounds intereting but not sure i have the head for all that geeky philosophy stuff.
  14. Mate youre about to recieve the official welcome to Australian internet...a step behind Lithuania in almost every way. sorry for the bad typing but cant' wake up this am
  15. I think almost all of them are from the 1970s and 1980s...but i think if you made a thread about worst music videos you would get a lot from the last 20 yrs
  16. Sorry for the lapse lately folks...apparently Optus (or Telstra? They seem to own the infrastructure) are unable to fix a certain tower due east of me, which has been wreaking havoc on my internet connectivity of late. Hopefully things have been resolved by now, although my wife tells me a story of someone whose Internet was out for two weeks while they "implemented" the NBN in his area. I hope this has nothing to do with the NBN (which is currently being extended to my street here in Frankston), but who knows these days, in an era of phone menus, "live chat" which never connects, and an overall illusion of customer service? (And yes, I get a bit cranky without my Internet....)
  17. Oh...my. I went from this to this in the space of just a few albums (and I'm pretty jaded about these things!)....
  18. MSCP course "Friedrich Schelling and 'Philosophical Psychology'" came to its purposeful end last night.  Great success!

  19. Cos you can never go wrong with bad album covers https://www.designer-daily.com/25-worst-album-covers-2968
  20. Nah it's a paid course. I'd love to hear th lectures but quite frankly don't have the money for it. I'll wait for the book!
  21. Holy crap! I was absolutely sure of "enormity"....I feel insecure now. Hug?
  22. Yeah...it always makes me remember this picture I saw around the time Hurricane Katrina hit the USA - a frog sitting on top of a snake swimming frantically across a body of water. It was really powerful: "hey snake! (*#$# our differences - LET'S GET THE )*$#$ OUTTA HERE!"
  23. The enormity of my misuse of "enormity" has an enormousness which is simply staggering.
  24. This is one of the best videos i've ever seen! i don't think anyone should underestimate the bonds that can be formed between humans and other animals...i've seen clips of lions and tigers playing with the humans who helped raise them after years of not seeing them. an amazing reminder that we are part of the natural world and can learn a lot from our animal friends.
  25. Gord that's amazing!!! I wish i had time to subscribe to your course, but I'm bang on with work right now and just don't have the time to read these days but i LOVE what you did with the site! i leave for a few months, come back and it's completely transformed! you've really made the site 'pop' and it's great!
