So Dark The Con Of Man

With the imminent release of The Da Vinci Code upon us, I thought it was time to throw up all the hullaballoo about the book and film.

My own personnal stand point is that this is a piece of fiction. Based upon conspiracy theories and conjecture it is an interesting, yet wholly harmless, book. People however are getting very up tight about it. I was reading Empire and saw how many people have tried to stop this movie being made. The bets one being a nun who protested outside one of the churches where they filmed. The nun protested in silent prayer for around 12 hours.

I think it is important to have beliefs and convictions. And of course one should defend them. But I think people are getting wound up about nothing. I understand however that if those who dont believe could be driven from it and those already believing could lose faith over it.

The importance is the standpoint. The Church are working fromt he point of saying its fiction, but campaigning as if it were fact. As long as we realise that it isnt fact then there is no harm. But I would like to start the discussion about this. What does everyone think about the book, the film, its theories and so forth.

Just let go. And believe.

Woe

Its now officially time to freak out. Ive been doing Classical Views from the beginning of the week and I have no idea about any of the things in it.

I have no problems with Tragedy, and Im sure Roman Comedy will be fine. But im worried that if I dont have Classical views as a backup I might not get onto my Masters. Arghhhhhh!!!!

Help me.

Million Miles of Water

So as my love for the Red Hot Chili Peppers grows day by day, and my anticipation for Stadium Arcadium also grows, I bought the Dani California singles (yes both of them). This is to obtain all the B–Sides. Make sure you go and buy the one with Million Miles of Water on it. Its so good.

So only two and a half days till Stadium Arcadium. Who else is excited? If you see me at all next week its all I will be listening too. I cant wait. I hope its as good as Im making it out to be.


Lib Dems

Upon watching BBC News this morning, they had a short interview with the new Liberal Democrat Leader. When asked about how important the youth factor of David Cameron's campaign was, we got this startlingly funny reply.

"Youth isnt everything. Just look at that woman recently who had a baby at 62. Of course Im not suggesting I will be emulating this behaviour"

What a star!

BBC News

Just watching the BBC news and they had a short sport section on Ultimate Frisbee. They interviewed the Leeds open team and explained a little bit of the rules. It was really good. Of course they were interviewing with a pinch of salt. I dont think they really wanted to know about some hippy sport. Still theres more of us out there than you think.
