  1. The WAP class is still the main agenda

    twi's running on inertia, and retaining people who were introduced in the 70s and 80s when there were real Christians on the field. Without that, they've got squat, and they haven't HAD squat for well over a decade. twi has nothing to induce GROWTH in any sizeable numbers, and is dying off as members get old and are kicked out as liabilities, or just plain drop dead even if they decide to stick around due to inertia.
  2. Since you've written out the full name before, I knew it was fair game. In other news, your turn!
  3. His most famous roles were probably Charlie Chaplin and Tony Stark, both of which are in the list of roles I posted. So, yes, Robert Downey Jr. He was in a lot of stuff, wasn't he? I was getting ready to add Sherlock Holmes, if that was really needed.
  4. Who's the character who said that movie line?

    No, LT was one of many who may have repeated the first quote, but exactly one character says the second- the character who is the first to say the first quote.
  5. These are all roles. And you're not paying attention.

  7. Who's the character who said that movie line?

    "Even a man who is pure in heart And says his prayers by night May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms And the autumn moon is bright." "The way you walked was thorny, through no fault of your own, but as the rain enters the soil, the river enters the sea, so tears run to a predestined end. Your suffering is over, Bela my son. Now you will find peace."

  10. 90s Kid in The Way

    Hello there! (I keep forgetting to check this forum so I tend to arrive late to the party.) Glad to have you aboard! " My mom first go involved with it back in the 70s/80s in Northern California and then sought it out again in NC when she was going through a particularly tough time in her life." As I see it, twi was a handful of people until the end of the 1960s. vpw read about those hippie Christians who were getting lots of attention and young recruits. He went to Southern Cal and managed to con a handful of Christians in a legitimate Christian movement, and convince them that he was part of one also. So, they became the recruiting arm of twi. He sent them to NY and California. People in both places got exposure to legitimate Christians with love and power, who claimed (falsely but naively) that twi was part of the answers rather than some parasite hanging off those with the answers. So, people exposed to THEM joined, and those people recruited others, and so on. The experience on the field was almost a completely different organization than the experience from twi HQ and so on. The closer anyone got to HQ, the more damaged they got. The closer people from HQ got to people on the field, the more damaged they got (the people on the field.) About 1988-1989 was when craig managed to chase off 80% of the remaining membership. With them left pretty much anyone who'd "descended" from those original Christians, and since then, all twi has had was a legalistic organization that cracks the whip and forces conformity. So, if anything has changed most radically over the decades (and there have been changes), I would say the biggest one was bringing in the legitimate Christians, and chasing off the legitimate Christians. In between was telling people that those people's successes were due to twi and not completely unrelated to twi itself. That's how your Mom got hooked. She remembered legitimate Christians from the 70s/80s who were all chased off by the 90s, and didn't notice the difference. (I went to ROA 88 and ROA 89, before and after the big chase-off, and the difference was shocking. Like a number of people, I exited completely at the end of ROA 89.) I'm sorry you had to live through twi post-Christianity.
  11. Movie Mash-Up

    Ok, I didn't see that one coming. Colonel Steve Trevor was rescued by WONDER WOMAN, named "Diana" (not Artemis, although that was a different amazon.) Who else made it from the 40s? Let's see. 40s was Golden Age(Jay Garrick, Alan Scott), 50s was Silver Age (Barry Allen, Hal Jordan.) Who was around that long and wasn't completely redone in the 50s (like the 2 Flashes and 2 Green Lanterns I mentioned)? 5 of them? Let's see. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman. Green Arrow. Who's the 5th? Aquaman? Robin?
  12. Name that Flick

    "You'll be seeing a lot of changes around here. Papa's got a brand new bag."
  13. Movie Mash-Up

    Sounds like it may borrow from "the Odyssey", but otherwise it doesn't ring any kind of bell.
