More movie talk. Not sure what to do with some movie reviews he wrote but this list might do for now: Some of My Favorite Films OK, I'll bite. The following list --- in no particular order --- lists most (but hardly all) of my favorite films, which may not necessarily mean that they are the best fil...

George Lucas vs. J. R. R. Tolkien Gee, I wish that I had known about this thread last December when I began to post on the Internet about THE LORD OF THE RINGS, which has been one of my "sacred books" since the Summer of Love (the summer of 1967, for those of you who are so unfortunate as not to ha...

Hi, all! I wish that I could say that you are all wet, but I am afraid that you are tapping into perceptions that I myself have. I like Whitley Strieber, but I never know where he stands, and I also like Linda Moulton Howe, although she really needs to learn the social graces of a talk-show guest. ...

Hi Doka, glad you like them! Not sure if everything I have here is equally interesting so I'll limit it to what I'd call the more "classical Joes" -- or perhaps "mighty Quinns" :) I Saw a UFO... Sixteen Years Ago! Here is an account, written shortly after the event while my memory of it was still fr...

Joe's Quotes

Re: What is Your Medieval Vocation? I used to think that I was an abbot, or at least a priest. But now I know that I am nothing more than a court jester, complete with cap-n-bells. Yeah, I get kicked around a lot under the table by the king, but I survive to the end of the comedy and I get to write...

Joe's Quotes (#2)

Okay, I'll not post them all at once but play it sweet and slow. Also gives me some time to collect them all from pages of dialog and perhaps remove some innocents. Keep in mind that the posts are presented at times as responses but I think they work still quite well "stand alone". Of course, the Fo...

You're welcome! I could re-post them here of course too or did you have another option in mind? There are in my backup probably at most a few dozen worth considering, if I recall correctly. But they are really still worthwhile reads even with so much clever things being said these days everywhere yo...

I've been away myself for some years but noticed just this thread upon my return. Joe happened to be a member on another forum I frequented in 2002 and apart from having exchanges with him I have archived some if not all of this 63 posts but I have it not available for the public somewhere so you'll...

I wish such 'good news reports' would be only written by Iraqi people who lived in Iraq last 20 years, and not by some Marine. Spend some time looking it up in archive material, but the statement: "military deaths from fanatic Nazi's and Japanese numbered in the thousands and continued for over thre...

NOW maybe the IRAQI people will finally believe and THEY will start ridding their country of these suicide bombers and working on establishing a government for themselves! To this point of time I think many were afraid to do anything because Saddam WAS still out there. Interesting idea Cherry. Howe...

TBL, The answer to your question is that I really don't trust any media. All of the media is biased in some form or fashion. That's why I try to read from all of the media and make a judgement for myself Cool answer and very wise :) It's beyond the scope of this discussion but the question 'who do w...

Hi Labowski (great movie!) I wonder why you would distrust a source like Hack while taking in the good news stories, which many of them have been proven to be fake copycat letters, blindly signed by soldiers. And why would you trust the media who have been proven to make false reports and are under ...

I don’t think there is any doubt there were weapons of mass destruction. The main question is where are they now?. Why did we allow them to leave the country? --Rick-- Hmmm, I admire your faith in the Holy Grails of Mass Destruction, but the most reasonable stance on it, viewing all published evide...

Cherry, it's clear that you, just like the people you quote are 'people who think they know, but they actually deal in a limited number of ideologically constructed "stories" about the world that rely heavily on stereotype and prejudice, and are infrequently submitted to serious pragmatic challenge'...
